THE LinkedIn Group for Bloggers Now Has Hundreds of Members

With close to 500 members now, the Leading Bloggers LinkedIn group is becoming a hot destination where bloggers and aspiring bloggers meet on LinkedIn by the hundreds to ask questions and get answers.

Everyone who contributes to this LinkedIn group should be proud of what you’re doing, just being yourself and offering advice to others who have questions. It really is that simple.

Next week, I’d like to give a free blog coaching session to someone who is a top contributor in the group. The winner will be announced this Friday, February 20th.

If you haven’t joined yet, you still can. Jump in and the more you contribute, the greater chance you have to win the free blog coaching session with me.
