Just updated the homepage/landing page of the Blogging Meetup. Let me know what you think? https://bloggingmeetup.com/



In a quest to help…

In a quest to help promote peoples content, starting TODAY we will be randomly sharing members posts from the prior week. #bloggingmeetup

If you are not sure we have your right social media information (e.g., Twitter, Facebook), I would encourage you to fill out the Registration form again so then your records are up to date.

Finally, if you would prefer that Blogging Meetup doesn’t share your content on Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus then us know and we will remove you from the list.



Survey Results – Blogging Platform

Thanks to everyone who took the survey that was running for the past two weeks around what Blogging Platform you use.

The results are interesting but not shocking by any means, here goes:
40% – Self Hosted WordPress.org (i.e., not hosted on WordPress.com)
35% – WordPress.com (Free Edition)
25% – WordPress.com (Paid Versions)
0% – Other

I think I would have thought there were more Free Editions out there but I am guessing people pay for a domain name or something smaller like that via WordPress.com. What does everyone else think?

Survey Time!

I am a curious person so I thought I would throw out a Survey and see what most people are using for their blogging platforms these days.  I am guessing most of you are using some form of WordPress so that is what it is mostly geared towards but I added “Other” just in case.

New Feature – Member Posts

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Have you ever wanted to browse through the most recent posts of our members?  Wished there was a nice list that keeps updating itself throughout the day with all of our member’s most recent posts, almost like an extension of the Bloggers Index?  I know a lot of you are really good about posting your newest posts on the site for feedback or when you are seeking answers to things.  Then there are others of you who are active on the site but probably don’t always put your own out there.

Well, that list has now been created!  It is a little project I have been working on for some time but never found the time to put it all together until now.  You can see in the sidebar the most recent 20 Member posts or you can follow this link to see the past week (https://bloggingmeetup.com/memberposts/).  Ongoing you will be able to access it in the top menu bar titled Member Posts.

Finally, if look around and don’t see that your blog is showing up let me know and I will make sure your site is added to the list.

So what do you think?

My one disclaimer is that from my testing over the last 48 hrs, it seems that the feed on the Blogging Meetup site only updates every hour.  However, if you want to see more real-time information or search blogs by specific keywords you can access the site I host that generates the list (http://bloggingmeetup.brebs.co/).
