TY imageFirst of all, a HUGE thanks to all the folks who’ve come to our Breakfast Blogging Club(BBC) meetings and workshops over the past year and a half!  We’ve been slowly and steadily getting the word out.  So more and more people are hearing about us and joining in the blogging fun.  Cool!

As of this month(April 2010), we’ve had over 25 meetings and have helped over 200 entrepreneurs with their blogging efforts.  That’s a modest number, I know.  But I wanted to take a moment and acknowledge some of the people and establishments that have helped us get this far. Read more

Danger.  Danger.  Danger.

Any of these questions and doubts show up for you?  The Breakfast Blogging Club usually meets twice a month in person.  Sometimes, it feels like a long time in between meetings.  During these long stretches, I often ponder, “Am I making a difference for anyone?”

Google Love Part 1: Importance of Outbound Links

During one of our recent Breakfast Blogging Club (BBC) meetings, I covered the basics on inserting links within your blog post. If you’re visiting for the 1st time, please excuse me if this post seems too basic for you.  We try to be as inclusive as possible with our material, and we’re finding BBC members are at different places on the blogging learning curve – from beginners to intermediate; and they’re traveling at different speeds, too – from slow & steady to Mach 5 with their hair on fire!

Having said that…here we go.

Breakfast Blogging Club Our first Breakfast Blogging Club Workshop was a delicious success!

A full workshop, nine cool people (and one no show) up to interesting endeavors, plus Cheryl and I (Beth), ate breakfast, talked about writing then actually blogged.

Here’s what one of our participants said:

“One of the best seminars about blogging I’ve taken. The first time I went to a seminar in a long time where I wished it was two hours longer!” — Judi Townsend, Mannequin Madness 

We’re excited to announce our next workshop, Tuesday, March 10, 9-11am, at the Z Cafe & Bar (same time and place). Over half of February’s participants have signed up for the March workshop, so we only have a few spots left. Contact us to secure your spot today. More details here.

Due to our success and the overwhelimg interest, we will open up a second date in March. We’ll keep you posted!

To Your Blogging Sucess!
