hello all! Today I have posted something in relation to previous post of mine.
How not to be a stupid
@ericmwalker – Thanks for offering to help! You don’t know what you have invited. 😀
Write On Target kicks off tomorrow and @ericmwalker and I couldn’t be more excited for this special addition the the Blogging Meetup site! Please be sure to check back tomorrow morning for what’s sure to be a great lesson and insight. All to help us make our writing, and by way our blogs, a little better than they are today.
See you in the threads tomorrow and have fun-connect-comment-share-like!
I am really not the best at self-exploration when it’s fun or funny. I want to post a random Q&A about myself that help my followers get to know me better, but am having a time thinking of fun questions to answer. So I am reaching out to see what you might want to know about me. Crazy, personal, stupid…whatever you got. Go!
Good morning Blogging Meetup! This community has been so heartwarming, and as we collaborate and share we are growing together in this amazing forum you have created. We hope you are connecting and making new friends -I know that we are!
One VERY important guideline needs to be addressed, so please take a moment to read:
Full blog posts with images are not meant for this forum. The idea is that you share commentary and summaries and then link to posts from your own blog so that we may click and visit your site. I’m afraid any posts that include images and are a full-bodied ‘blog post’ – one that would be better suited posted in your individual blog – will be edited down, images removed, and/or removed completely. We will try and replace content for those we edit down with a direct link to your site, where possible, to make sure we direct people to you so don’t be afraid of being dejected here- that is not the intention.
Lots of conversation occurs here and we certainly want to keep it coming! Those will NOT be edited down, please continue to chat amongst the forum. But images are taking up a lot of space and we certainly do not want to crash the site as we eventually reach capacity-so we do need to keep those to a minimum as a general rule of thumb please*.
So, comment, share, and like with others. But link to your blog posts instead of writing them here in the chat. We want to visit your sites, that’s exactly why we’re here.
As always, if you have an idea, a challenge, a special event you’re hosting on your site, let us know and we can spread the word by featuring it here in the Events panel. This site is evolving and you are helping it everyday through your interactions with one another. And, if you haven’t browsed the Blogging Index lately, I encourage you to hop on over- we have a lot of new members to meet and greet. (The categories project is still under-way, I promise. But it IS an undertaking and I appreciate your continued patience).
Lots of love and happy Blogging,
Amanda and Eric

@ericmwalker How do I allow people to “like” a post without the need to sign in to wordpress? This is for fans who do not have a wordpress account.
We need you! Please. The best way to generate new additions to our community family is through your promotion. Twitter, Facebook, tag #bloggingmeetup, challenges, Events, conversation. Link the logo on your site in the side panel with a widget. You can even link to our socials underneath too.
We don’t want to get so big we can’t talk to each other but we do want you to feel BMU is diverse and developed and engaged and ultimately a great common room in the blog coffee shop. A place where you can stop in each day and chat while you drink your Java, meet new people and build your network of friends. Maybe direct you to some resources that help you too.
What value did BMU invite into your day today? What value did you bring to another in the BMU today? New post? hey-link it here! New BloggingU course? How’s it going? We’ll put it out on Twitter and Tumbler for you too. Fresh ideas? Email us.
You grow, we grow. We grow, you grow. Thank you for being here – we love you and thank each and every blogger here you are making this 5 month old site a great success.
@ericmwalker vision, @ameenasmusings prompts, @amandaowen2015 well, whatever I do – and #bloggingmeetup (that’s all of us). We are a team building each other up, sharing, caring (yes I just said that) and connecting. Let’s keep it up and soar.
