If  you  haven’t explored Meetup yet, you need to get out more.  If I can get out and do a little networking then so can you.  I was recently at the Front Range Bloggers meetup and it was fantastic.  It’s run by Dave Taylor and Jeanine Crooks and attracts a wonderful range of bloggers and people.  Knowledge was shared, beer was drunk and a good time was had by all.

There are Meetups for every niche and you may even want to consider starting your own Meetup.  I have a couple myself and they are great for connecting with new people.  It’s not expensive to run them, you can have up to 3 Meetup groups for $45 for 3 months.
