Freelance blogger Jason Steele is the head of his local FinCon group in Denver, and he’s had a great time getting together with fellow finance bloggers throughout the year. Here’s what he has to say about Denver’s most recent FinCon local meetup:
On Sunday, July 7th the Denver FinCon local group got together for another meetup. Despite being a holiday weekend, we had Sean Bryant of Freesnatcher and OneSmartDollar, Michelle Jackson of Shop My Closet Project, Justin Pritchard, the Banking and Loans writer for About.com, and myself, freelance blogger extraordinaire. It turns out that all of us are slated to travel to St. Louis for the national FinCon conference this October.
What makes our Denver meetups great is that we always get a diverse group of bloggers. Two of us were full time bloggers, two part-time. Two blogged for their own sites, while two wrote for other’s. We also get a wide range of ages, expertise, and experience so our discussions are lively and illuminating. If you haven’t joined up with a local group yet, contact PT and get on the list.
