My name is Jenni Terry Stockton, I’m a Freelance Writer and Blogger with a blog on WordPress as well (Wait Til You Get A Load of This). I discovered Meetup groups–I am so impressed by all of the Meetup groups (if you have never heard of Meetup, please, go to the App Store or Google Play for Android and get it) there are apps for every possible interest you can imagine…so I decided to start my own group so that I could get a small group of people together to share their work, experiences, become friends, ask questions, have a shoulder to cry on, etc. I’m in several writing groups and they’re great, don’t get me wrong…they are just so incredibly large. I like small and quaint. I was thinking 20-25 members.
Furthermore, I would like to make this blog about some unique freelance writing and blogging stuff–I would love if anyone would like to sign up to contribute to this blog, I just got a new job and I’m writing a book, have five other blogs and 3 beautiful kids, oh and two dogs… so I don’t have a whole lot of extra time. I wanted to see how this turns out. It’s very beneficial to bounce ideas off other people and if there are more than one or two contributors, we will learn about different writing styles, problems faced, how they were
solved, and we can all use each other’s shoulders to cry on and ears to fill with our frustrations…so in a sense, it’s a writing and blogging support group, if you will….
I hope that you find this group and this blog to be helpful and that you’re interested enough to join the group (start by looking us up on Facebook under Northern California Freelance Writers & Bloggers Group) or at least to subscribe to our blog. If you’re interested in being a contributor, please send me a message and I will contact you. Thank you for taking the time to discover a little bit about Northern California Freelance Writers & Bloggers. Your support is always appreciated!
