Calling All St. Louis Bloggers

I had a great time talking about blogging at the meeting of the Computer Consultants of St. Louis on Tuesday evening.
One of the things I enjoyed most was getting to talk with long-time St. Louis blogger Jim Durbin, who runs the STLRecruiting.com site. He was somewhat disappointed when I told him the real story behind my St. Louis is Blawg City USA post and the effect that it had, but we shared a laugh about it. It’s fascinating story about the unusual powers of blogs. Jim, we have to get together and continue our conversation.
Jim mentioned that he knows that are at least six groups of St. Louis bloggers in which people have gotten to know each other and socialize. However, he noted, none of the groups really know about or interact with the others. It’s an interesting phenomenon.
I thought it might be cool to try to cook up a way to bring those groups together. I’d be interested in some ideas people might have for doing that.
The first idea I had was to extend an invitation to all St. Louis bloggers to Matt Homann’s next Idea Market on Monday, January 15. Maybe we can spend a little time trying to find a way to do a St. Louis blogger event? Even if you are not a blogger, if you have a chance on Monday evening, consider dropping by the Idea Market.

    That story is really quite funny – I can’t believe I’ve been passing that story about St Louis blawgs around as fact for years.
    A good lesson, for sure. As for the six groups, I was going to write them up and post them – and then send invitations to a large event.
    We should talk some more. I’ll give you a call next week and maybe we’ll get together.
