Today’s blog post is slightly different as Amanda tells us about the second meeting of the KLCK Bloggers network:
It was a busy day for Spiderworking.com and the KLCK bloggers network yesterday. I was invited along with Lorna Sixsmith from Garrendenny Lane Interiors to go to the Edwina Grace show on KLCR96fm to talk about KLCK. Edwina was great and we couldn’t have felt more relaxed chatting to her.
I only just made it back to the office in time to grab my computers and head straight back out to the Talbot Hotel, the venue of the second KLCK Bloggers Network. I couldn’t believe how many people were there when I walked in the door. 22 Bloggers in total from all areas of blogging, some business bloggers, some personal bloggers and some who hadn’t started blogging yet but were keen to get going.
Participants were truly nationwide with people traveling from as far as Limerick to join in.
For those who couldn’t make it in person I livestreamed the event via webcam and Twitter, we had 4 viewers on the night, if you missed it you can view the recording by clicking here. Paula Sheridan from Candle Designs gave us some great tips on using Flickr and Ruairi Brown from Kro.ie took us through the steps to set up a WordPress hosted blog. You can download Ruairi’s presentation from his blog.
After all the formalities we retired to the bar where we did some more relaxed networking. It was a great evening and we’ve had so much good feedback that I can’t wait for the next one. Photographs from the night can be viewed on the Flickr group. If you would like to know more about the KLCK Bloggers network join our dedicated Facebook Page.
The next meeting will take place on Monday 13th of September at 7pm in Portlaoise (venue TBC). We’ll be talking about ‘Plugins’. It’s free to attend and all are welcome whether you are blogging, thinking about blogging or just want to know what a blog is.
