Just last month I participated in a conference called inRL 2014 where hundreds of women met and connected to talk real life. It was amaze-balls. Yes. I said that. That's how good it was. To me, that is a fantastic example of expanding past regular blogging horizons. If some amazingly talented book blogger wanted to organize a video conference, 1. Credit me ;), 2. Sign me up! So many of us turn to blogging to connect with like-minded individuals and a video conference would be the epitome of it all!
On a much smaller scale, however, I would love to start or join a mastermind group. What is a mastermind group?? Kat Lee from HowTheyBlog.com defines it as such:
Mastermind groups often look like a small group of bloggers who have intentionally banded together to invest in one another, share their skills, provide feedback, and promote one another. Mastermind groups are especially great for smaller bloggers or bloggers just getting started – the group will provide just the feedback you need.(Listen to her podcast on the topic as well!) A mastermind group gets together via Google Hangouts, Skype, Facebook, etc to encourage one another, promote one another, and bounce ideas off each other.
This would be so fantastic I think. It is like a smaller scale conference that is so much more personal. To be able to connect and create that 'tribe' is what I think the heart of blogging really is! I haven't tried a master mind group yet, but hey! If you find it as interesting as I do, go ahead and leave me a comment or email! We all have to start somewhere ;)
Can't wait to see how everyone else is expanding their blogging horizons!! Have a fantastic Wednesday ArmchairBEA!!
