Now I know I’m not alone in being a bit crap at starting blogs. When pondering this issue with colleagues, we came to the conclusion that time put aside for blogging once a month might be a solution.
So the Wellington Agile Blog-In was born. A monthly, or so, meetup for would-be bloggers to get together and actually produce a blog, in the time it takes to eat tea and watch two episodes of Coronation Street.
On the night, we’ll dive straight into the blog pool deep end. As an ex-journalist with credentials from The Guardian and other broadsheets (quick bit of self-promotion so you know I have at least some experience) I’ll do a rapid talk on how I approach blogs and discuss the six Ps of blogging: Purpose, Plan, Produce, Polish, Publish, Promote
We’ll have a glass of wine, a few crisps and we’ll get down to blogging with a little help from your friends.
Please join the group here and come along to the first meeting on Thursday 26th November at the offices of IntegrationQA – they are kindly lending us a room (details if you follow the link and join the meetup, or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org)
At the end I’ll facilitate a brief discussion on the aspects of blogging we’d like to learn more about, so I can go away and find some inspirational speakers and people for the next few sessions.
I hope you can join me.
Details: Thursday 26th November – 5.30pm. Go to meetup for more: http://www.meetup.com/Wellington-Agile-Transformation-Blog-In/
