Blogging for profit and visibility

Bloggers run the gamut—from writers who just love a personalized platform from which to hold forth to entrepreneurs who use blogging as a key promotional strategy for their businesses and causes.

The Seattle Weblogger Meetup attracts both types, and plenty of bloggers in between.

The first half hour of the monthly meetup (at Ralph’s Grocery and Deli in Belltown) focuses on a topic (this month it’s “Blogging for Profit and Visibility”) and the rest of evening is chat about everything from the state of local news reporting to online identity to the fine points of HTML coding. Ralph’s has wifi, so people bring along laptops and call up web pages to illustrate the discussions. You’re also likely to get a peek at some cutting edge tech gadgets.

Interested? The next meeting is May 21. Find out more.
