By the Cardiff Blogs Team
Cardiff Blogs returns on September 5 with the next bloggers meet up following the summer social in July.
Under new management and after seeking (extensive) feedback from both regulars and newcomers to the Cardiff Blogs scene, the team will host “For Love Not Money” – showcasing people in Cardiff who are doing creative and cool things online for the absolute fun of it.
Amy Davies of Cardiff Arcades Project fame will be sharing her experiences about the project and the popular blog that accompanies it; what inspired her to start it, what she’s enjoyed about writing and developing it (including her exhibition at Big Little City:Cardiff ) and where will she take it next.
Also speaking will be Jeremy Rees from Radio Cardiff who will be talking about how they have got involved with the community and with local bloggers.
The meetup will be held at the new Jolyon’s bar on Cathedral Road – come along from 7pm, speakers will be starting at 7.45pm.
There’s free Wi-Fi, so tweeting during the event is encouraged (just try to keep it clean, please!) The hashtag is #cdfblogs.
A relatively new venture for Cardiff Blogs, we will also be running a ‘blogging surgery’ beforehand (5pm-7pm) for anyone who wants help with their blog. Bring your laptop along and we’ll do our best to help with anything we can; from choosing the best site to host your blog, making your existing blog look pretty or fixing that bit which has always bugged you.
At the last meetup we mentioned the fantastic Give and Make Up, a non-profit initiative whose sole purpose is to get everyday essentials into the hands of women and children who have escaped domestic violence. At the September meetup there will be a collection point if you wish to bring along any unused toiletries, make-up and baby products you would like to donate. You can read more about Give and Make Up, it’s efforts in Wales and why we’re getting involved over on Cardiff Blogs.
As always, our events are free to attend and open to everyone, so if you’re not a blogger (or not from Cardiff) then don’t worry! Come along and pick up some tips and tricks from some of the finest bloggers Wales has to offer – it may be the push you need to finally start that blog you’ve been thinking about?
Or you may want to just come along and listen to some great talks and chat to others who love bloggers/blogging/reading blogs as much as you do.
