That's a dumb question – we are all so bright and illuminated from within with great ideas – who needs a light bulb?
And it is all about sharing that illumination that has Chris Brown, Brand and Market, and I inspired enough to host the first (of many) gathering of the Akron Bloggers Community (ABC).
We have invited 16 business bloggers that we have enjoyed reading, or have heard referred to and we asked each to bring one other business blogger to the event.
Truly inspired by Mike Sansone of ConverStations (who needs all our warm wishes and prayers right now, check out Drew's latest update) and his band of Iowa bloggers. Chris emailed Mike after meeting him at SOBCon07 and hearing more about their collaborative efforts. He graciously responded with all kinds of advice and well wishes as we begin networking and connecting IN PERSON with area bloggers.
So I ask you – have you reached out in your community to area bloggers for encouragement, links, advice, tips for traffic?
What advice do you have for us as we launch a cooperative blogging effort in? Are you in Greater Akron? If so and you didn't get an invitation – comment here and I'll provide all the information.
Wish us luck!
