The ActiveRain tag line in the little cloud brand reads: Connect. Share. Learn. It is certainly a place to do all that. Tonight is super special for Fort Worth, Texas, area Rainers because there is a Meetup scheduled! In just an hour or so, we will get to shake hands. For real! Not virtually! On my way soon. Hoping to meet some of you guys!

The Details

When: Tuesday, June 4th, 7pm-10pm Texas Time (Although no one is kicking you out at 10)
Where: Whiskey and Rye Bar at the Omni Hotel in Fort Worth
Who: Me, you, some other people
Why: Stop asking so many dang questions!
What: Socializing and networking with old friends, your computer friends, and making some new friends

"You're not that popular!"

I can easily remember the first ActiveRain meet up we ever tried. Jonathan and I were down in Orange County, CA looking at office space (at one point we were convinced that we should have our offices on the beach in the sun) and decided to host an impromptu meetup in the area. Have you ever wanted to know what it feels like to be humbled? Try having a meetup where there are hundreds of people in a 20 mile radius using your site and then only ONE person shows up.

(I will forever put aside whatever I am doing and offer any assistance I can to that one great lady that showed up!)

6 years later and ActiveRain has grown up quite a bit. We now have over 340,000 people that have signed up for the site at some point in the last 7 years and our members routinely host meetups around the country that easily outdraw the paltry showing Jon and I got back in 2007. 

And since everything is bigger in Texas, I expect we can easily double the size of that first meetup on Tuesday June 4th in Fort Worth. I will be down in Fort Worth speaking on a panel at the REX 2013 Real Estate Conference and Expo. My little panel (hosted by the illustrious Nicole Nicolay) will be focused on the local state of SEO and I'm honored to be joined by a bunch of people smarter than I am (which is fine because I have a list of jokes prepared to fill any awkward silences). ActiveRain can get you a $300 discount if you'd like to join me for the entire REX Annual Conference from June 2-5th by using the code DFWLOCAL1 when you register (that takes the price from $399 to $99.....you're welcome).

(But that's not the point......)

The point is, I'd love if you would come hang out with me and (more importantly) with some other ActiveRain members in Fort Worth for some good old fashion fun. Now I don't know how much trouble we can get into on a work night, but we can certainly try! At this point you are probably so excited you could care less about what else I have to say and you just want the details.......fine.......

I'll have a bunch of ActiveRain T-shirts with me. The first 10-15 people will get a shirt. Like the home-buyer tax credit a few years ago, it's not a reason to join, it's an incentive to join. The reason is to get together with other AR members and have a good time. And I'm really bad at ending conversations so it's conceivable if you wanted to corner me for an hour and have me analyze your blogging and internet lead generation strategy, I would do it.

 

  Friends, followers, and connections are the way of the future.

I have been to three of them, it is just so much fun. Getting to meet folks you know and that you meet for the first time. Priceless!
