Q: Do I have to live in Portland to attend events?

A: No, we’d love for any and all bloggers to join us at these events. Portland-area bloggers will be the faces we see most often though, because, most events will be located in Portland, Oregon.

Q: Do I have to be a blogger?

A: Yes, sort of… We really want the events to help benefit bloggers by providing connections, information, and resources, so, we typically limit the events to bloggers. 

Q: Do I  have to be a home dec, fashion, or crafty blogger?

A: No! We welcome and encourage all types of bloggers. Portland is diverse in its many interests and we hope that the Portland Bloggers represent the many different aspects of Portland-area  culture.

Q: Can I bring a friend who’s not a blogger, but is a blog enthusiast?

A: Yes! While we do limit the events to bloggers we don’t want to ever discourage someone from joining our ranks. If someone is interested in blogging and learning more about the blogging trade they are more than welcome to attend a meet-up.

Q: How do I contribute a post to the blog?

A: The Portland Bloggers website is a site written for and by Portland area bloggers….which means we’d love for you to guest post! If you have an idea for a post or would like to write for any of our pages, please fill out the form below.

A: We always look forward to introducing great companies to the bloggers at the meet-ups. Potential sponsors are invited to fill out the form below. We will contact you with our sponsorship information package and get the ball rolling on introducing you to Portland area bloggers!

Q: What do my event costs or sponsorship payments on this site go to? 

A: The Portland Bloggers volunteers just recently came to realize that the workload for the site and meet-ups were beginning to be way too much for one person, or even several people, without some sort of pay for their work. The majority of meet-up costs go toward venue, food, and supplies. The small amount of overhead from the meet-ups and sponsorship on the site go to the running of the website, planning and running of the meet-ups, and for making the Portland Bloggers’ a viable business. The business is currently owned by Jenni Bost and ran by her and a handful of amazing contractors, but plans for growth are in the works! Thank you for your help in creating a great space for Portland area businesses and bloggers to grow together. If you would like to donate to further the cause please visit our sponsorship page or donate via Paypal to sponsor{at}pdxbloggers{dot}com.
