Blogger Hour – Calling All Twin Cities & Minnesota Bloggers!

A few of us met tonight at the Ridgedale Champps over dinner on what we initially dubbed “blogger hour”. It was basically myself plus the cool minds of Aaron Weiche and Patrick Schaber.

It was fun. We enjoyed a dinner and a drink, chatted about stuff like podcasts, RSS, video marketing, Twitter, beer, endurance sports that only Aaron’s wife can pull off, etc. I certainly got to learn a few of those things that I should just automatically know.

Then we thought “why not expand this?”. There are a lot of great bloggers in the area. The City Pages does have a small list of them (ok, HUGE list). It would be a great way to meet new people while getting to blog-talk whether it’s about marketing, techy, blogging in general, or most importantly, just about “stuff”.

Aaron and Patrick may post about this as well. Any takers?

    Hi Paul,

    Sounds like fun. Keep us posted for the next one!

    And while you are speaking about get-togethers. The next get-together for Minnesota search marketing folks is set for July 17th at the Liffey in Saint Paul. Hope you plan on making it Paul, we haven’t had one in a while. You can check out the details at the mima search marketing blog.

    Cheers!

    Thanks Chris! I’ll definitely be there. You were actually the first person I thought of when thinking of expanding this. The Liffey should be a really nice turnout!

    What a great idea! Think of the resource group that could be created if local bloggers who deal with topics of all sorts joined forces – tons of possibilities. Looking forward to seeing you at happy hour!

  4. Hey Paul,
    Great to see you! I’ll throw up a post this weekend rallying any Minnesota bloggers that read my site.

  5. […] this a few posts below, but a few of us are trying to grow something we’re initially dubbing Blogger Hour. Since the City Pages recognizes a boatload of MN bloggers, why not get people away from their […]
