We held our very first TypePad NYC Meetup last week in the Six Apart office! Good turnout, good pizza, great bloggers. TypePad has changed a lot in the last few months, so we talked through the new interface and some of the new features. We covered better content management for bloggers, better design and discoverability tools (search!) for bloggers and their readers, and a ton of new community features that are just plain good for everybody. Here are some of the folks who attended and shared their blogs:
- Daryn from mrpoplife.com, entertainment and celebrity news extraordinaire
- Luis from Latino Small Business Owner, a blog (en Español) supporting Latino businesses in the tri-state area
- Eric from brandng.com, his blog about marketing and advertising
- Serge the Concierge -- the "French Guy from New Jersey" :)
- Pam from Infosearcher, and a fellow librarian
A few others stopped by to check out the latest in TypePad, including Vivek from Links Alpha, Eric from NY Drinker, and Andrew, a designer. Thanks to all of the folks who made it out amidst the torrential downpour!
We want to keep these meetups useful and relevant for you, the bloggers, so be sure to check out our TypePad NYC Meetup group for polls and feedback from the event. We'll be having meetups regularly in our offices, and the topics will rotate depending on your suggestions.
Not in New York? How about San Francisco? Keep your eyes peeled for an announcement about TypePad happenings on the West Coast!
