This morning, I had the opportunity to attend the Columbus Metropolitan Library Summer Reading Club kick-off event. The library welcomed local Columbus Mommy Bloggers for a special talk given by the library’s director. It was a great experience, and my first time every connecting face-to-face with other mommy bloggers!
We were all able to exchange blog information, websites, twitter urls, and contact information. I was the newest mommy blogger out of all of the attendees, although some of the other moms had been blogging for years! I also learned that there are other local events for mommy bloggers which I may be interested in.
The mommy bloggers I met:
@EverythingMoms and http://everythingmoms.blogspot.com
@amyturnsharp or @littlealouette and http://www.alittlealoutte.com
@cbusmom and http://www.cbusmom.com
@mommystory and http://amommystory.blogspot.com
@wyliemac and http://the270.com
@thiswomanswork and http://www.thiswomanswork.com
Sometimes, being the New Breed Mamas that we are, we don’t always have the chance to meet and talk to our internet and twitter friends face to face. However, I encourage anyone who has the opportunity, to venture out and meet other local mommy bloggers face to face. Building local connections is a great way to build up readership and to stay ‘in-the-know’ about what’s going on for mothers in your neck of the woods!
