Blogger Meet Up

I am beginning to work on a women blogger meetup in my state! I have wanted to do this for a long time, but it just had not hit the top of my to do list, for some reason people like to be fed and have clean underwear around here. Well, I do live in a house of males, so the clean underwear thing probably is not true.

I get completely overwhelmed at times and that is when my blog suffers. I have thought at times that maybe I should just put blogging off for a couple of months and then KAPOW! things happen in my blog world that don't let that happen. Such as, Pioneer Woman, yes Ree, listed my blog on her site, yea that created some traffic and then Kim Severson, a culinary writer for The New York Times, talks about me and listed my blog in an article, big surprise since I use the smoke detector to know the bread is done.

So, just as my blogging was slowing down, I get a call that kicks me into gear, again. I was talking to a fabulous marketing gal about writing a guest post for her museums blog and it turned into us planning a blog meetup to be held at the museum. I am ecstatic.

Now, here is where you guys come in. Have you been to a blog meetup? If so, what did you like about it? What did you not like? What ideas do you have?

Remember, this is the first one, we really just want to provide a place for everyone to meet, so formal in depth blogging topics will wait until we plan other meetups or a conference. Did I say a conference? I see the laundry pile rising.

Help a sistah out!

Sounds great! I could totally skip class, starve the family and leave a trail (nay, mountain) of laundry at the new house (that still needs paint, tiles and a new kitchen) to do that.

Not sure if you are talking formal or informal meet up, but I went to a blogging conference in May -- and they had tons of classes: tech, writing, advertising -- you name it. some of it I liked, some of it I didn't -- it was very cliquey (is that a word??). But I would love to be involved in an Arkansas group.
