So my friend Kent over at TinyHouseBlog.com has put forth a great post, he is asking about the next steps we need to take to start meeting face to face. Now this is not an easy task, for many of us, we are far from others. In fact, this blog is read by people in 150+ countries!
I did have a map going of where Tiny House people are located, but it recently was shut down because the website that ran it shut its doors. The other bloggers and I need to come up with a replacement, I will be talking with them soon on that note.
Why should we meet?
First off, it is always good to socialize with people who are passionate about the same thing. I have talked about how relationships are so important and how I try to drive a personal connection. Next I see it as a way to gather and share information in a highly concentrated form. The information gained in a few hours of talking would talk 10′s or 100′s of post on this blog. Finally bring a group together with a Tiny House bring press, press bring awareness to our issue and challenges thinking.
What will do?
What I propose – this can be changed and improved – is after locating people in a certain area, we determine a meeting place that is central. The most successful meet will have at least one Tiny House which will draw people and the press if things go well. The day will consist of:
- Meet and greet
- Tiny House tour
- Sharing our story with press
- Information sessions
- Distributing materials
- Exchanging contact info
- Determining next steps (if any?)
In the comments please give me some feedback on what I laid out here. Some questions you might consider in your comment:
- What would you like to see?
- What info sessions would be useful?
- Where are you located?
