What if bloggers went public? Not sure what I mean? Think on this.
What if some local bloggers set a time and location to gather and write posts for their blogs? What if they took turns each week - one offering a 10-15 minute story, topic, concept or technique about their blogging and then all in attendance took a vow of silence for the next hour to write.
After the time expired you could hang around for some share and feedback time, or just leave. Once a week or once a month?
Am I mad? We could call it something... Open Blogging? Blogging Out Loud? Public Blogging? We Are BLOG - Resistance is Futile?
