I tried, a few months back now, to try and start a local blog group on facebook, and ended up with a total of 2 members. That was including myself. I have recently found another local blog group, which a fair few members, and who actually managed to get to the meet part.
So fingers crossed this may lift the ever lasting writers block I have at the moment. I couldn't make the first meet which they held due to work commitments, but I'm hoping to attend one of the ones in the future.
