A friend and fellow blogger messaged me today to ask about writer's groups for bloggers. My group is open to any kind of writer, so I invited her to join us at our next meeting. The reason I am blogging about this is because as president of my writing group I am always looking for new speakers and speaker topic ideas for our meetings.
Why not have a speaker come talk about blogging, how it can help writers, and how to be successful at it?
I read all kinds of posts filled with blogging do's and don'ts, how to grow your following, and how to get Google to pull up your blog during a search. The problem is, none of these great bloggers live in Oklahoma City.
So my question to all of you fabulous fellow bloggers is: How in the world do I find someone with tons of experience as a successful blogger, who likes to speak in front of people, speaks well before a group, and who is close enough to OKC that the $50 VISA gift card we pay our speakers won't make them roll their eyes at us?
I have not been blogging long enough to have local blogger friends yet. I would appreciate any suggestions.
