If there’s one thing many bloggers fail at it’s networking. Now, I’m not talking about networking via social media, like Twitter and Facebook. No, I’m talking about good old fashioned face-to-face meeting like they used to do it back in the old days. In my opinion nothing solidifies a friendship quite like a firm handshake and a few stories passed back and forth.
During the past several years a small group of us bloggers have met during the SHOT Show in Vegas for a social hour. Those times are always fun and it allows folks to get caught up on happenings. Moreover, it builds a bond with other like-minded bloggers that helps to energize a person’s future creative output.
It has long been my hope to gather a regional group of bloggers together for a fun rendezvous here in the upper Midwest. I’ve learned that is not always an easy task to accomplish due to the fact we all live busy lives, but important nonetheless. So, if you blog about the outdoors and are within reasonable driving distance of the Twin Cities, I urge you to make plans now.
Announcing plans for a fall Day at the Range. We’ll be doing some shooting, we’ll be doing some other outdoor activities, we’ll be eating fresh smoked BBQ, and most of all we’ll be getting to better know one another.
Here are the plans:
If you have any questions please contact either Michelle Scheuermann, Chris Larsen or me. If this goes over well maybe next summer we will plan a similar gathering at some lake to focus on a little fishing. Hope to hear from you soon.
