Your blog doesn't live in a vacuum. It's connected to people, to other blogs, to an invisible ecosystem with influence on the real world.

Is that a community? Can it be managed, encouraged and motivated?

All bloggers are welcome to join us for the Alabama Bloggers February meetup. We'll have lunch at Cantina, a terrific taqueria with a mouthwatering menu, along with your questions and ideas on blog communities. Host Wade Kwon of the Birmingham Blogging Academy will facilitate the discussion.

Let us know you're coming with a comment below, please.

[And if you want to join the discussion on all things blogging, join the Alabama Bloggers Facebook group.]

We'll see you this month in Lakeview.

Planning on attending barring any work emergencies.

Have it on my calendar and it should be "all systems go" for me this time. No classes to interfere that day and the location is great for me.
