Meet me at Cantina on Friday

February 11, 2013

I’m excited to be host of this month’s Alabama Bloggers luncheon.

We’re meeting from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday at Cantina at Pepper Place in Birmingham’s Lakeview district. Everyone’s invited and can RSVP on the original post.

At the first Alabama Bloggers meetup in 2009,
I brought the “I ❤ blogging” buttons, not the girl.

I’ve been haunting these meetups for 4 years and have been known to bring a surprise or two. This time, we’re giving away two $25 gift cards from Cantina, so make sure to read the post top to bottom to enter.

I love meeting other bloggers in Birmingham and hearing more about what they do online and offline. For this week’s event, we’ll discuss building a community.

A few questions we might tackle:

  • How important is it for bloggers to listen to commenters?
  • How important is it for bloggers to respond and interact with commenters?
  • What is an online community? Who runs it, if anyone?
  • What do bloggers get out of a community? What do members get?
  • What are some ways to build a community around a blog?
  • What are the most common headaches in managing a community? And how do we deal with them?

(Add your questions about blog communities in the comments.)

Don’t miss a lively discussion, great food and smiles all around on Friday. RSVP today.
