Blogging Meetup

mari kaneThe next BCATW Meetup will be Road Blog: Becoming a Travel Blogger for Fun or Profit, presented by me, Mari Kane.

I’m the webmaster of this site, the BCATW Directory site, and I also blog at my other sites, Blogsite Studio and Tasting Room When it comes to blogging, I think I know what I’m talking about.

We may have a new venue for our Meetups, but today is too soon to announce that or the date. I’m hoping for July 8th, but please stay tuned to for confirmation.

If you are not a Meetup member, what the heck are you waiting for?

BCATW Meetups is the hottest thing about the association. Join now, and if you want to participate in our June 11 Meetup in New Westminster, please RSVP today!

Thanks and see you next time!
