Wanna take a cheap shot?

Roanoke and New River Valley Bloggers to meet March 15



Roanoke Biz2Biz, WDBJ 7 are hosting a local bloggers conference on Thursday, March 15 from 12 noon - 2 pm at the WDBJ 7 Community Room in Roanoke. Lunch will be provided and the cost to attend is $10.



You will hear bloggers from all experience levels discuss this topic.



If you are a blogger, then we want you there to meet other local bloggers offline. Bring your laptop to showcase your blog in the wireless environment.



Individuals curious about blogging and how to create, use and read them are strongly encouraged to attend.



You must RSVP to attend as space is limited. To register, email Patsy at RoanokeBiz2Biz.



I will be a speaker at this event, so come on down and heckle if you like. Or congratulate me on my greatness. Whichever works for you.



We already have 30 people attending, and the room capacity is 60. I'd like to stuff the room to the point they need to find a larger venue for the next meeting - on the order of the Civic Center.



Considering the number of new bloggers appearing weekly here in Roanoke, I'm beginning to wonder if my job is safe.



At least Rhett has no competition,yet.

The way I read the Biz site it sounds like they're going to be focusing on how you can make money for your business from your blog. I'll probably go anyway, but won't bring a laptop.

Don't think of it as competition, but as encouragement.

If I can ditch a meeting, I would love to be there. Ah, screw it, I'll just quit . . .

I will be there. However, it is amazing how easy it is to make some money through google adsense on the blogs. I have made enough to cover the only cost of my blog and that is the domain name.

Of course, my blog is more constrained than others due to my subject matter and localizing.

Enought about that, I do think that the meet-up will be enjoyable. I am sure I will find out about some blogs I don't know about.

Can't make it since it's "a time when most people are still working, or just
getting out."
