I’m going to be in Phoenix for about a week starting midday Feb. 16. Although my daughter and I have several jaunts planned, we’re also interested in having a blogger and/or reader meet-up.
It would almost certainly take place after the workday ends at 5 p.m. or so, although we’d certain push it further if other folks work later. We know that several other PF bloggers live in Phoenix, but are there other writers, too? And would readers be interested in hanging out with us?
The presence of readers might help us keep from being totally focused on stuff like SEO and hyperlinks. Bloggers other than Abby and me would have a chance to talk about their sites and maybe make some new fans.
If you think you’d be interested, leave a comment saying which days/times work best. This soiree would likely take place at a coffeehouse or fast-food restaurant, i.e., a place where we can sit and talk without getting kicked out.
A couple more things
Lately my spam filter has been catching triple or quadruple the amount of junk mail. It’s gotten so persistent that I’ve been opting for the “empty spam” button vs. scrolling through to see if any honest missives got through by mistake. (It happens.)
If you leave comments and/or enter the weekly giveaways, refresh the page and make sure your message was recorded. New readers (or longtime lurkers) might check back later in the day, in case I don’t approve comments right away.
Sorry that I can’t keep up with the spam. Protect your comments, or at least your contest entries, by checking back.
Finally, a regular reader and commenter named Sonya Ann has published a book called “Stratagem: A Life Perceived” on Amazon. The Kindle version is free to download until Jan. 31, and she’s staging a celebratory giveaway whose prize is a $25 Amazon gift card.
To enter, and to find out how to download the book, check this post on her blog (A Mom, Money and More). If I can’t win the card, I hope one of you does.
