It’s odd that one thing I haven’t written about recently is the Birmingham Bloggers Group (possibly re-framing itself as the social media group/cafe). Perhaps because I have so much to say about it I don’t know where to start – breaking the cardinal rule of blogging – which is to just start, stoopid.
We met for the first time last month and meet again next Monday 18th Feb. First question (for help) is we would like a central venue with free wifi – Digbeth or City Centre – for probably about 15 people (maybe more) from 7 in the evening. Booze and non booze on tap. Does the Friends of the Earth Cafe have wifi?
Also want to mention a couple of new things since the last meeting. Mark Steadman should be joining us next week. He’s just launched the New Media Junkie podcast – find it here for the moment – new site to come soon. Mark is using podbean.com for hosting, a new one one me. I host on my own space (a throw back to 2005 and misplaced ideas of being in control!) , but free hosting is plentiful and very usable.
Well. I’ve started.
