I’ve been promising myself for months that I’d get along to a Perth Weblogger Meetup. I finally made it last night.
There was around a dozen bloggers who met at the Brass Monkey Pub in Northbridge. I’m hopeless at turning up at places alone when I don’t know anyone but it was relatively painless. Great people and a great evening.
The next Meetup is on at the same place, same time on Wednesday evening the 16th of May.
Strangely enough it turned out to be more of a Twitter Meetup than a Blogger Meetup. While I’d seen evidence of something called Twitter existing through other blogs, I hadn’t really paid it much attention. Keeping a running tally of everything you’re doing throughout the day didn’t really grab me as a wonderful idea.
Peer pressure is an interesting thing. As soon as I got home from the Meetup last night I created my own Twitter account and I’ve spent today leaving a trail of activities online for my new Twitter friends to read. I’ll give it a few days and see if I get addicted.
