I’ve been blogging since May last year and it seemed to me that Jozi lady bloggers were few and far between. But recently I’ve noticed that is not really the case. There are tons of amazing lady bloggers in Johannesburg. Another thing I’ve noticed is that people think it’s ‘hard’ to get into blogging and blogging in South Africa seems a little closed and information is not really shared. I’ve seen amazing blogs by amazing ladies and I think we all deserve the support of a blogging community. So it’s with this in mind that I’ve decided to start lady blogger meetups in Johannesburg (If you can get there, you’re welcome!). The meetups will be focused on women’s interest, just so that we can keep to a topic and be specific. I want it to be a place where bloggers can come to meet people, share ideas and just find support.
I’m not sure how this is going to pan out, but I want us to develop a blogger community for everyone, those just starting out, those who want to start out and the heavyweights. Blogging has become so much more than a hobby to me, I’ve met some incredible people, worked with others and have just been having a fabulous time and hope to share that.
I’m planning to have the first Lady Blogger Meetup towards the end of November which gives us enough time to plan and decide where we’re going to take this. If you have any comments, suggestions, ideas or think this is a really rubbish idea, just let me know at email@example.com or comment below 🙂
