SQLBlogsters first Quarterly Meal in London

We want to a) get more good content and people blogging, especially here in the UK, we also want to b) create a face to face expert community for those who are participating in (a).

So, in way of thanks; for those a create enough quality content in each quarter, you will get invited to dine on us (do KFC sell beer?) either in London or Harpenden (for now) and talk SQL with other leading SQL experts.

Anybody can achieve this, but, what do you need to do?

Simple - get a blog and start creating useful content, remember - we said 'quality' content - so, that means your own, it means demonstrating/talking about some technique - look at the sort of posts I do as an example.

The first SQLBlogsters meeting will be held toward the end of July, its not too late - we'll be making our decision who to invite in the next 2 weeks (before 18th July).

Join us in making this one of the most popular, most useful sites in the community. And no, we will never (not so long as I own the domain) force adverts onto your blogs like certain other sites do! Doesn't stop you doing your own and we can help put you in front of sponsors once your content grows and you become popular....

Good luck!

Just trying to keep up with all the SQL blogs out there is already tiring. How do you find the time for all of this, and have an RL (real life)?

I suspect it will be a long way before I start blogging, and I doubt my foray, as and when it starts, will be much more than an aggreation of things I've found, and feel like sharing, rather than original content.

And, I guess I should add in all honesty, I have a fear of proving myself an idiot (although since I do it daily, you'd think I'd be used to it :P)

OK, I am sure it could have been more creative with the title, and I just *know* I'm going to be one

Who knows. I might even put something SQL related on there, once I learn a bit more about blogging, and the how-to's for sqlblogcasts, and blog-iquette (Is there such a thing?)
