5 Summer UK Blogging Meetups to Travel with Purpose

Blogging is an activity fit for anyone, from professionals to those looking to put their thoughts into words or pictures and share them with the wider world, but we all need guidance if we want to get better at it. Thankfully, there are groups out there that specialize in just that, located all over the United Kingdom – you just need to know where to look for them.

If you plan to spend some time traveling around the region this vacation season, check out any or all of these five summer UK blogging meetups to travel with purpose:

1. Writers and Bloggers Meetup Group

While invigorating, introspective, and sometimes even profitable, writing can be a very lonely endeavor, and this Birmingham-based group aims to solve that problem by bringing writers together in order to socialize, get to know one another, and form lasting friendships. All of that social goodness aside, you can also expect to gain the kinds of insight that wordsmiths need most as you rub shoulders with people who share your interest in writing and blogging.

When and Where: These meetups take place at various locations around Birmingham throughout the year, giving you ample opportunities to find a get together that suits your schedule and location.

That’s exactly what the Edinburgh Internet Marketing Meetup Group hopes to help you to achieve, bringing together bloggers of all kinds to find their inner marketer, all with the goal of helping your blog to hit new levels of success.

When and Where: A trip up north to the historic city of Edinburgh, Scotland is required to take part in this group of internet marketing and blogging pros! If you need a place to stay during your travels, you can always find something nice and inexpensive at cheaprooms!

3. London Bloggers and Microbloggers Club

Drawing bloggers, social media enthusiasts, and web professionals of all shapes and sizes, the London Bloggers and Microbloggers Club offers exactly the platform you need to get to know and interact with your local colleagues in a fun, relaxed atmosphere.
