I love to write about growing vegetables, cooking them and anything else that pops into my head come to that, but even more so since I’ve attended the KLCK Bloggers Network meetings.
Set up in 2010 by Lorna Sixsmith of Garrendennylane Lane, an online home, gift and lifestyle store and Amanda Webb of Spiderworking.com, social media business expert, (both pictured below) the group has been growing in number from month to month.
On the first Monday of each month a bunch of enthusiasts meet up in a hotel somewhere in Kildare, Laois, Carlow or Kilkenny to discuss and hear advice on various blogging related topics.
Whether its video, photo or written work, WordPress, Blogger or Flickr, all subjects are (or will be) covered. It doesn’t matter either whether you’re a complete novice or an expert, everybody is there to help each other.
Sadly I missed the December meet up at The Seven Oaks in Carlow due to the snow, but luckily Hedgehog Productions were filming (so Mr Greenside Up can now see for himself that we’re not all sitting around drinking cups of tea).
So if you’re living in the vicinity, keep an eye on the meeting dates and come along and join us. The next meet up is in Portlaoise on the 7th February from 7.00 till 9.00pm.
We might all be a bit shy to start (some of us may be more familiar with our keypads than people), but it’s a great way of meeting our online friends and colleagues and putting faces to names, and of course, sharing a cup of tea when we’re finished.
