    I can totally relate to joining Meetup groups, only for the organiser to disappear, or suddenly say they are too busy and need someone else to take over the reigns. I've joined plenty of Meetup groups myself in my local area, and this happened a lot. After reading this book, I now understand why this happens. I've been thinking of starting a few Meetup groups of my own. That's why this book got my attention. It's definitely worth reading before making the leap into running your very own Meetup gr I can totally relate to joining Meetup groups, only for the organiser to disappear, or suddenly say they are too busy and need someone else to take over the reigns. I've joined plenty of Meetup groups myself in my local area, and this happened a lot. After reading this book, I now understand why this happens. I've been thinking of starting a few Meetup groups of my own. That's why this book got my attention. It's definitely worth reading before making the leap into running your very own Meetup group. The book offers numerous tips on starting and running a successful Meetup group, and what to expect once you do. One thing I've definitely learned is that we need to be clear on our goals and intentions for the group, and to check if any similar and popular groups already exist in our area. Very detailed and handy step-by-step instructions on how to research and actually set up your very first Meetup group. "Meetup Organizer Survival Tips" is the complete guidebook and road map for successfully organising and running your very own group on the Meetup platform. Readers will also discover the various ups and downs of being a Meetup group organiser. Pretty much everything is covered in this book - even troubleshooting tips - and it's well worth a read.

    (Kindle Unlimited) Julia Black’s book was, literally, an eye-opener for me. It starts with the sentence: ‘As we all probably know by now, Meetup.com is an online social networking system designed to get people together in real life…’ This is where I do a public cringe and admit that I had never heard of Meetup. Apparently there are a few countries where it doesn’t exist, so following the author’s step-by-step instructions I went on-line hoping to discover I had a perfect excuse for my ignorance. I (Kindle Unlimited) Julia Black’s book was, literally, an eye-opener for me. It starts with the sentence: ‘As we all probably know by now, Meetup.com is an online social networking system designed to get people together in real life…’ This is where I do a public cringe and admit that I had never heard of Meetup. Apparently there are a few countries where it doesn’t exist, so following the author’s step-by-step instructions I went on-line hoping to discover I had a perfect excuse for my ignorance. I didn’t. France has a huge Meetup network, in fact I stopped counting the number of towns with groups when I got up to 65 and was still only at the letter ‘C’. Again, following the instructions, I kept on clicking and found out there was actually an English-speaking book club in my area which means I can no longer moan about the loneliness of a being a rural ex-pat bookworm. Julia Black’s description of the network as ‘humungous’ is true, and being a virtual organisation whose aim is to get people meeting up in reality I soon understood how important it is to know just what you’re doing. The first risk of becoming an organiser is to find yourself getting swamped by UGH (Unfiltered General Humanity) with its share of Dick Dastardlys and Cruella Devilles. There’s excellent advice on how to filter members for your groups, along with other important topics–safeguarding your privacy (and we all know how important that is), avoiding money-handling, setting up a calendar and timing events, plus examples of how to word ‘delicate’ messages, or establish reasonable group rules without sounding authoritarian. All in all this is a handy guide with many useful tips for readers thinking about becoming involved in Meetup organisation without landing in ‘cow pies’. It’s written in a conversational, easy-to-read, style which tells you all you want to know and gives you a few chuckles into the bargain.

    This is a quick read that details the ins and outs (or ups and downs) of becoming a Meet-up organizer, and how to keep it from driving you crazy. Through the first portion of the book, I found myself longing to hear more of the author's experience, but she came through a little before the halfway point. This made the advice more realistic and believable. She covers things such as the Mechanical How to's, the fee, social etiquette, and things that are NOT the organizers obligation, as well as when This is a quick read that details the ins and outs (or ups and downs) of becoming a Meet-up organizer, and how to keep it from driving you crazy. Through the first portion of the book, I found myself longing to hear more of the author's experience, but she came through a little before the halfway point. This made the advice more realistic and believable. She covers things such as the Mechanical How to's, the fee, social etiquette, and things that are NOT the organizers obligation, as well as when to do things for the good of the group instead of just trying to be nice and please everyone. Here's a hint, doing so could be the demise of a Meet-up group, and she tells you why. She discusses where your draw the line at your obligations: "My feeling is that stating the time, place, and how to find the group is the end of an organizer's obligations to other adults." That's the thing, isn't it? You are dealing with other adults. So setting standards and asking people to answer questions when they apply is perfectly reasonable. I appreciate her sharing what she has learned from her Meet-up experiences.

    If you plan on organizing a Meetup.com group, “Meetup Organizer Survival Tips” is a quick and handy guide to help you avoid the pitfalls you may encounter along the way. The book can be read in less than an hour and is written in an easy, breezy style. It’s empowering for anyone who has the urge to be a group host but also feels intimidated by the prospect. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Meet Up Advice that works well As a computer consultant I don't use MeetUp but I suppose if I did - I would find this book an extremely helpful guide. Though it did not grab my attention very much, mostly due to the fact that I found the subject material uninteresting, I suppose if I did use MeetUp and was a lot younger I'd probably like this app. My rating is 3.5 stars.
