There's more to blogging than twice-reheated coffee, bathrobes and pink bunny house shoes.
At least, I'm pretty sure there is.
From our first meeting in February, Tulsa Blogger Meetup was formed to strengthen the local community of independent, online publishers. We want to encourage excellence in local blogging, too.
We're also fans of giving ourselves a good excuse to get together each month for laughs, beers and the occasional, delicious noms.
We hope you'll join us for what's going on at TBM this month (full details after the jump).
Meet Jeff Martin (click that link for the only website music that didn't piss me off, ever), author and the mastermind behind one of the largest (if not THE largest) Facebook fan followings in Tulsa - that of the Philbrook Museum of Art. He'll tell us how to build a strong Facebook following that could mean increased, quality traffic to your blog as well as a stronger community around your blog's brand.
Holly Wall, senior editor at Tulsa Business Journal, is known in the local news business for her Twitter prowess. She tweets strategically to gather sources for stories, to build the TBJ brand and to establish herself as an expert on what's going on in the Tulsa business community. She'll talk to us about how to use Twitter to build an audience, establish yourself as an expert in your field and to conduct research so that your blog posts deliver what your readers can't find anywhere else.
Both of these cool cats will be speaking to us on Thursday, July 29, from 6:30-8pm at Philbrook Museum of Art, 2727 S. Rockford Ave.
