Members Only

You may have noticed a button on my right sidebar under the heading "Members Only Jacket." (Do you recall Members Only jackets? Here's an example, along with a gratuitous Goonies reference):

Anyway, that button signifies my membership in The St. Louis Blogger's Guild. Don't let the name fool you, however - we don't just blog. We are parents, professionals, photographers, tech geeks and radio personalities, all of whom bring to the table expertise in diverse areas.

As diverse as we are, we do share a common goal - to promote blogging in all its forms, and to share our knowledge, not just within the Guild, but in the community as well. This is a very important part of the Guild - especially since I am now the Outreach Coordinator (I think that's my title).

Have I got you interested? If not, then answer the following questions:

If you answered "yes" to any of these, then check out the Guild, and try to join us at our next meeting on February 14 at 11:00 am (NOTE - this might change to February 7). Meetings are held in midtown St. Louis. The $5 non-member fee can be applied to your annual membership dues of $40, if you decide to join. The dues cover costs of webhosting, publicity and promotion of the Guild, and meeting costs. We also offer financial assistance if necessary.

So, after all that, do you still have an excuse not to join? Or at least check us out by attending a meeting?

Any questions, let me know. If I can't answer them, I'll put you in touch with someone smarter than me.

Good read about the bloggers guild. Glad you shared that. Equally glad of the link love.

I need to link back here for sure. :)

I remember my grandfather coming back from Hong Kong with a big bag of members only jackets for all of us. Mine was white. I was 10 or 11. I remember him saying these are really popular over there and everyone will be wearing them here in about a year. He was right.
Wish I could join but I'm a little far away. Sounds fun though.
