Coffee Talk Sharing The Love

Blogging & A Beverage

2nd July 2018

And so, hello.  Regular readers will know I’ve been blogging for a while.

In the last 18 months, I’ve taken blogging more seriously and also had more fun with it.

I’ve been thinking of ways to boost this groovy blogging community that seems to have stuck with me all these years.  (That would be you groovy people.  Hi.)

Real talk time, I’ve wanted to start a blogging group on Facebook for a long time.  It’s my favorite social media platform, and I’m part of some great groups already.  More real talk though, most of my faves have shut up shop.

And so, I’ve started my own group.  Which is really a group for you guys reading this, wherever you are reading from.


Blogging & A Beverage is the new companion FB group for Gin & Lemonade, and it’s for anyone who blogs with caffeine in the morning and something stronger at night.

Group aims:

A place where we can be our true, authentic, honest selves and share our true, authentic, honest blog posts and connect with like-minded people.

A place to share any cool writing opportunities you find (or have to share) with other people groovy people in the group.

Upcoming writing prompt action

A place where you can help me make Gin & Lemonade a better blog (occasional reader feedback surveys and a sounding-board for future services.)


No religious or party political posts

Be excellent to each other

Don’t be a troll.

Blogging & A Beverage is for:

Real-life style bloggers, new or not so new.

Displaced bloggers who hate the word niche.

Writers who should actually, y’know, be writing more.

I have some cool things planned, join here and have a beverage.

Thank you!
