I believe that blogging should be the hub of your social media campaign. I’ve seen the results that blogs can bring both for driving traffic to your website and as establishing you as an expert in your field. But it can be hard to get started and even the most proficient bloggers are always learning and growing. It was for all of these reasons that earlier this year with the help of Lorna Sixsmith of Garendenny Lane Interiors I set up the KLCK (Kildare Laois Carlow Kilkenny) Bloggers network , with the aim of sharing knowledge and become better bloggers together.
Monday night was our first meeting in Kilkenny and we had two excellent speakers. Marie Ennis O’Connor whose blog ‘Journeying Beyond Breast Cancer‘ attracts massive amounts of traffic talked about how to get more people to read our blogs. There was something for everyone to learn from her presentation including me! You can view here slides by clicking here.
Ken McGuire followed on the theme from last month covering some of his favorite WordPress Plugins, a great selection that would enhance any blog, most of which I will be adding to this blog soon. You can view his presentation by clicking here.
The meeting this month was hosted by The Pembroke Hotel in Kilkenny and we were blown away by the facilities a big thank you to everyone there for their hospitality.
The next meeting will be on the 8th of November somewhere in Kildare, speakers and venue TBC.
