next Grassroots meetup – Blogging For Small Business

Grassroots Business Association

Hey! Kristen from Schmancy and the wonderful Plush You! show and myself are going to be giving a little talk on Blogging for your small business on March 18th. We’ll be covering the basics for people who have never had a blog, giving some dos and don’ts and sending you off with a set of resources that will get you started. Please do come and join us, we’d love to take your questions.

If you are planning on attending please let us know at our Grassroots Business Association group on, it will help us a lot to know how many people we can expect for the night.

We’ll be at Vermillion in Capitol Hill at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 18th. Vermillion is at the 1508 11th Ave, Seattle, WA 98144, between Pike and Pine and across the street from the Vallue Village, (map). Vermillion offers both food and drink if you’re hungry or just happen to need a drink that night. We’ll keep our talk short and afterward you can mingle with other Grassroots Business Association members.

    When you give your talk, would you please add something for me? Encourage them all to look at their website as if they were a lumberjack in Bosnia.

    Does it say where the business is? Is it a brick and mortar? Is there an address, phone number, hours? If not a brick and mortar does it at least somewhere not buried say what the reason for the site is (sell stuff, show stuff, whatever)?

    Just last week, I did a search looking for places in Seattle that carried Addi turbo knitting needles. I turned up more than a couple local businesses that included NONE of the information above.

    I run into it all the time. Please tell them not to assume, to include all info – even if in tiny type at the bottom.

    Susan – Yes, I will do this, and thank you for the note. I have run into this as well and it’s maddening.

    I wish I wish I wish Grassroots lived in Portland!! The stuff you are doing is fabulous, such a great resource. At this rate I may have to make the drive for one of your meetups!

    Hi Martha
    Thank you so much for providing super useful tips about blogging! I’m always amazed at how something like talking outloud online can open up so many opportunities and connect with people in ways I never expect. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.
