Join the TentBlogger Local Meetup Group!

As a result of some of the thoughts and comments surrounding this blog post about building community more I thought I’d create a Meetup Page so that we could consider doing some local gatherings and meetups to get to know each other better and encourage each other better!

I think this would be a neat way to get some serious face time with each other, give an opportunity to interface and exchange ideas, as well as have topical discussions about blogging, WordPress, search engine optimization, creative writing, and more!

I’d love for you to become a member of the Meetup Group, fill out your profile completely, and start suggesting some ideas of how we can start some local gatherings!

And of course, if you’re interested in leading one I’m all for that as well! Wouldn’t it be neat to have, one day, local TentBlogger Meetups worldwide in every major city on the globe? Wow! What a dream!

Love to hear your thoughts on this and how we can take this community up a notch!

See you there!

    Still working on getting a URL. Not being successful in getting one started. I get it all set up then want to go to it and not connected.

    I live in the state of New York and not able to travel very well but the idea of a get together to learn more about each other is a great idea. I just joined a group in my area of a Christian writer’s group but maybe somehow could do your group also.

    I would definitely love to be apart of the community. Cout me in and I’m sure a few buddies of mine that are bloggers would be in also.

    • John Saddington

      awesome! beginning to plan the first one!

  • bruce crews

    This is such a great idea! Even if there is never a local meetup for some of us, I know we’ll still benefit from the experience. Thanks John!

    • John Saddington

      why not be a leader and start one? all you have to do is recommend one via our meetup page!

  • Susan Silver

    Fantastic, I’m out on the West coast but my spirit is with the community ;)

    Have fun all who can make it.

    • John Saddington

      i’m sure there are some tentbloggers over on the west coast… why not have one there?

  • Dustin W. Stout

    So this would only be applicable to those in the Atlanta area?

    • John Saddington

      no, you could create a meetup in your local area… love for you to lead out where you are…!

  • Justin Ham

    This is a great idea! Are noobs welcomed as well?

    • John Saddington

  • Jamie

    Great idea John!

    I’ve signed up and i’m willing to host a Meetup in the Tulsa area. I’m just curious if there’s any format you want us to follow or just have at it?

    • John Saddington


      no format to speak of…! anything that will educated and provide collaboration opportunities!

      • Jamie


        • John Saddington

  • googler

    What a great idea John! Love to join the TentBlogger community but my local area is way here in Asia, specifically the Philippines. Is there already a planned meetings in the making in this area?

    • John Saddington

      why not help generate some interest and lead one?

  • Kevin

    I’m all for this! …mainly because I live 45 minutes or so to your north, but also b/c it’d be epic to meet some of the community!

    • John Saddington

      this could be pretty epic, for sure!
