ProBlogger Readers Meetup – New York

I’m really excited to announce that it looks like there will be a chance for the first ever ProBlogger readers meet up while I’m in New York in late March.

Text Links Ads have aggreed to sponsor the night (cough… free drinks!…. cough) and we’re at a point where we’ve narrowed down the date to 28 March (it’s a Wednesday) for an evening meetup (time to be announced).

I’m staying in the Midtown West kind of area so it’ll probably be not to far from there.

At this stage we’re keen to hear from anyone interested in coming along. Getting an idea of numbers will help us choose an appropriate venue.

If you’re a good chance to come leave a comment below with your name and an email in the email field (it’ll be kept private) so we can keep you in touch with the details as they emerge.

I’ve already heard from a few people that they’re considering flying and driving in for the event which blows me away. If there’s enough interest perhaps we could also have an afternoon time for a little more formal get together (perhaps even a workshop or two before the meetup) – an unconference of sorts. If this interests you also please indicate it below.

update: we’re close to having a venue booked. Keep checking your inbox over the coming days and start thinking about what other bloggers you can invite! :-)

    Do you ever visit this part of the world? India that is…

  2. Darren Rowse says:

    no plans for India at this stage Aziz – although I was talking to someone about speaking at an event there last year but it fell through. One day hopefully!

  3. Todd jackson says:

    Definitely curious about this. Could be very educational.

  4. jim says:

    Do DC next! :)

  5. Flexo says:

    I’ll be there in the evening… coming from Jersey.

  6. Lara says:

    Darren – I am SO there!
    3.5 hrs by train for me – but I’m in – without a doubt.

    Let me know if you want to do a workshop on SEO or Internet Marketing… ;)

  7. paul says:

    I’m an hour away in NJ, keep me posted. thanks

  8. Allen Stern says:

    can you push it out a week :) — I want to be there!

  9. Mark says:

    Coming from S. Jersey – count me in. Afternoon unconference sounds great!

  10. Elise says:

    Love to attend please keep me posted.

  11. Todd says:

    Depending on what is all planned out there is a chance that I could make it over on frequent flier miles. A little ways away, but it is during my spring break period.

    So if a workshop gets put together, I might just be able to pull it off and catch a flight.

  12. Jim Willis says:

    Would love to attend both a workshop and the meetup. I’m in Upstate New York (about a 3.5 hour bus trip).

  13. Dr. Vino says:

    Great idea! I’m on my third meetup in a monthly wine bar crawl of NYC. Let me know if you need any help selecting a venue. To get the ball rolling, I have a mashup of NYC wine bars:



  14. Minic Rivera says:

    Would love to attend. Keep me posted please.

  15. Dan says:

    I’m interested. I’m a Sydneysider but will be in NYC then on a post SXSW holiday.

  16. Steve says:

    another brooklyn boy – in!

  17. Dave H says:

    I’m in from S. Jersey. Looking forward to the meetup.

  18. Yaacov says:

    Put me down for the 28th. I’m only a few stops away on the subway. Looking forwards to it.

  19. bill says:

    I’d be interested. I live in NYC, midtown west. Might have a line on a location if you don’t already have one.

  20. Sounds like a wonderful idea.
    Look forward to meeting you.

  21. CT says:

    Wow, you’ve got people coming from all corners of the globe for this! Makes me feel like a slug, since I’m actually in Manhattan. But I’ll slug my way over, (hopefully) via subway!

  22. Ken says:


    This sounds great! I work in the SOHO area in NYC so I could come right after work.

    Please keep me posted!

  23. Dan Blank says:

    I will be there! Thanks.

  24. Sounds like a great idea. After some of what I saws at Northern Voice recently, count me in!

  25. Payton says:

    I’ll be in NY that week and would love to attend! Have you chosen a venue and a time yet? I haven’t seen any more info on this.


  26. Darren Rowse says:

    Update: we’re close to having a venue booked. Keep checking your inbox over the coming days and start thinking about what other bloggers you can invite! :-)

  27. Lara says:

    Just double checking to make sure I’m on the list to find out where this is going to be… I only need a few hours advance notice to get there, but it’d be super nice to have a wee bit more time than that! LOL I can’t wait!

  28. I’m across the river in New Jersey and would love to come, but I have choir practice on Wednesday nights! Augh! Maybe if you do something during the day/afternoon, I could come for that and then head back to Jersey and miss the evening activities.

  29. Payton says:

    Thanks for the update Darren!

  30. Ray Dotson says:

    This one sounds like a blast. Any Cincinnati area bloggers looking to carpool?

  31. Lara says:

    Any updates on where and what time? *batting eyelashes*

  32. A. Casalena says:

    Also interested on location / time. Where and when will that be announced?


  33. Marc Beharry says:

    I bet “Fosters” would have loved to be a co-sponsor.

  34. Still getting pumped!
