Today was the inaugural meeting of the Sac Girls’ Blogging Club. My apologies to any other club with the same name, we did not steal it from you and chances are we’d love to join forces with you if you really exist.
When people in my real life discovered that I had a blog, I started to get a lot of questions about how things work. I also discovered the blogs of some other pretty cool people that I already knew beyond the computer screen. Brainstorming with a friend about blogs, the idea dawned on us– we need to start a nerdy girls’ blogging club!
So, today, three of us met at Old Soul in Sac and talked WordPress vs. Blogger, WordPress navigation, site monetization, and guest blogging. One of us is now even a WordPress convert, but we’ll wait until her style changes are ready to unveil her new WordPress home. We also chatted about teaching, reading, summer plans, exactly the social vision that I imagined for such a club.
Now, we have the goal to make our little club a weekly occurrence. Even if it only ends up happening a couple times a month, I’m excited. It’s nice to connect in real life with the faces behind the stories we read online. If you’re a chick in the Sacramento area and feel like joining us, let us know! Sorry men, it’s not that we don’t like you, it’s just that we feel safer connecting with women in person, (and, besides, you’re probably not interested in all of our chatter anyway!).
What a great idea! :). I’m sad that I don’t live close! I’d SO join! 🙂
Thanks! You should totally start something like it wherever you live! It was more fun than we expected! 😀
Im a mid Missouri girl, and blogging isn’t really big here. I may have to find some Missouri bloggers though! 🙂
I am jealous! I need to find some girl bloggers in my piddly squat town, which is pretty unlikely. Have fun! I’ll enjoy reading about your meetings!
You never know! Two members were at my same school and we didn’t even realize it! 😀
Also super jealous! What a good idea though!
It was fun– you should start one where you live! 😀
I can’t wait until the next meeting and I can stay longer. It was so relaxing and fun! It’s interesting how much fun we can have together outside of the classroom. Thanks for hooking me!
Agreed, that was oddly a blast! 😀

I didn’t even have to blog about it, because I knew one of them would. ❤ sooooo excited!
Yeah … I’m jealous also. What a great idea.
Oh man I wish I would have known. I live here in Sac and i would love to take part in the next meeting 🙂
Awesome! We kind of lost a little momentum because of all of our crazy summer vacation plans, (so far we’re a group of teachers), so I’ll keep you posted, it might be a bit until we meet again! 🙂
I’m down for whenever 🙂
