Blogging for Good

After seeing what some other blogging communities in different parts of the country are doing, I decided to put this out there today for my NYC community:

Do any local bloggers want to have a meetup in the city in the next few weeks? (Or, non-local bloggers who just happen to be in town?) I’d absolutely love to get everyone together and not only meet you all face-to-face, but talk about stuff we can’t talk about with anyone else…if you want them to actually listen, that is. My roommates, although supportive, don’t love discussing blogging as much as I do. SHOCKING.

What’s better than talking about running and health and fitness and delicious food (while eating delicious food, naturally) with a bunch of friends who “get it”…(plus strangers who are soon-to-be friends!)?

Obviously I’m starting an Excel document…if you don’t know me, I’m obsessed with Excel. It’s genuis. (NERD. ALERT.) Please leave a comment on this post or on Twitter (@kararuns729) and I’ll send out a mass email once I’ve compiled all the details. I think the first couple of times it would be fun to meet up at a restaurant/bar/park/coffee shop/pool/zoo or whatever your little heart desires, and chat it up. In the future, maybe we can host a big workout together, or do some type of volunteering. Do some good in the world, right?!

I will potentially make you all do this and take photos. Just saying.

Just throwing that out there. I’m going to attempt to work with some local studios/gyms to see if we can get anything done. SWEAT-SESH FOR BLOGGERS. YES.

Met these lovely ladies through blogging!

Blogging for Good NYC! (Even if the good is less “volunteer work” and more “laughing with friends”.)

    Wish I lived in NYC to join you all! Have fun with it. (I wish I liked Exel, btw, but I find it the most frustrating program on the planet!)

      Yeah I’m a freak, no one else likes Excel, haha

    I don’t live in NYC and my blog is atrocious. But it would be fun to meet up anyway!
