July Meetup – Graphic Arts Club Mascot

This week we hosted our fifth Blog Chicks lunch at the Graphic Arts Club in Mascot.

It was great to catch up with so many of you! Our lunch chicks included:

Discussion this time was more business orientated than it has been at previous lunches – lots of talk about monetisation, strategy, (re)development, and diversification. Rah frantically took notes for you all!

We shared our thoughts on sponsored posts and three bloggers in particular were named for doing this really well on their blogs:

We also spoke about giveaways and the value of using them to try to increase your reach (particularly Facebook likes). Two sites were mentioned for being great for giveaway promotion:

and Rafflecopter was recommended for running giveaways.

Some other resources that were mentioned and recommended:

As we said at the end of lunch, we really enjoyed having such a lovely group of blogging chicks join us. It was great to spend a good 3-4 hours talking about the nitty gritties of blogging and business. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us all!

The next Blog Chicks lunch is being held on Sunday 11 August at San Churro, Penrith Plaza. Come and join us in the ‘riff to get a sugar hit while talking about blogging. Hope to see you there!
