Bloggers Meeting(s)

If you missed the Polk County Bloggers meeting last night then you missed four meetings. To think our small group has more than tripled in size after just a few meetings. Our first meeting was only a year ago.

Four of the bloggers present that night are still active blogging in Polk County. And we were all there tonight.

Let’s see if I can remember everyone:

Steve, Aaron, Darby, Jess, Barry, Billy, Josh, “Bubba Bog”, Kristen Freaking Jane*, Travis, Emily, Mike, Matthew, Tom, and last, but certainly not least, Lorrie

We also had a couple of attendees looking to start blogs, but I’ll leave them unnamed until they’re ready for their debut.

The group was so large that multiple meetings happened during the meeting. Side conversations and splinter groups quickly formed. We’re normally a pretty laissez faire group, but tonight was like herding cats. Interesting, well spoken cats. I know I missed conversations I wish I could have heard.

We spoke a bit about technology. Josh handled most of those questions. I came home and realized that over the year plus I’ve set up feeds and such, and forgot most things days after doing so. I’m going to do some housecleaning over the next week. I’m apologizing now if I break something you liked.

We bantered some about making money on your blogs. If any reader has figured out how…let us know.

We made snide comments about the bloggers who didn’t attend or left early. Ok, we didn’t. We’re bloggers. We save that stuff for our blogs.

We had swag. (Thanks Darby.)

Generally, I think everyone had a good time.

Finally, if you have blogging questions and are not up to making the group meeting…I can meet you over lunch or after school, and explain what I can.

Lorrie has a write up and Josh has a photo.

“Bubba Bog” is the name he uses on his blog, and I’m not going to use anything else here. *Kristen Freaking Jane” is what her husband calls her, and who am I to say different?

  1. I indeed am known by my husband as Kristen Freaking Jane. I wear it proudly and wouldn’t have it any other way…ha,ha,ha! Loved the meeting…good stuff.

  3. Nice round-up. Great meeting, even if it was loud and we were all left exhausted from an evening of herding cats. I’d be interested to know your thoughts on meeting at the Chamber. Personally, I love the coffee house feel, the informality, etc. But with a group this nice, that’s going to be difficult to continue.

  5. Whoa. Who was rude enough to leave early?? I’d like to talk with you about the Chamber and would love some input. Wish i could have stayed longer…but family duty called.

  7. That was a pretty interesting meeting Monday night. Hopefully the next one will make more sense for me with all those technical terms and such.

  9. Mike, it is like driving. Therms only sound odd until you get behind the wheel a few times. You’ll be posting like mad in no time.
