First Meetup on Blogging

  • This was a defunct group that I took over a few months ago. It’s been around since 2002 and although it had over 200 members, they were mostly inactive. I decided to add more stuff on my plate and committed to have the first meeting in over a year. It was interesting because slots were filled up fast and as soon as someone dropped off, another one took over their place. I just hope I don’t make fool of myself.

    Areas of Discussion

    The cheesy title of this meeting is “How to Boost Traffic & Turbo Charge Your Blog in 2008”

    We will discuss major challenges in blogging including:
    1. How to Generate and Grow Traffic
    2. Building a Large Subscription Base
    3. Monetization Strategies
    4. Technology
    5. (I will leave this open for you guys to suggest)

    I have done very little, actually no preparation for this meeting. I want to wing it and speak from the heart. I fear public speaking and if I had to memorize a subject that I should know about already, then I feel my knowledge or interest is artificial.

    I hope to do well and help as many as I can.
