The list of active steemians in the UK continues to grow - now up to 130.
I am sure there are still more people around Britain we haven't found. If you know anyone in the UK who isn't on the list let me know.
The first UK Steem Virtual Meetup went well and everyone thought it would be good to make it a regular event to help grow Steem in Britain.
So I have set a date for one more Virtual Meetup this year - Thursday 29 November.
The Meetup will be on my radio show on MSP Waves, 8pm - 11pm UK time.
The goal of the meetup, as well as getting to know each other and networking a little bit more, will be to progress the ideas discussed in the first meetup to hold at least four regional events around the country.
These are still subject to change but currently we are considering...
in the Midlands - a music related event
in London and the South East - a food related event
in Wales and the South West - a film related event
in the North - a business / crypto related event
Check out this post for more details on each of these...
Anyone in Scotland up for organising an event as well?
News & Updates
London and the South East
In London and the South East @redrica is going to be meeting a number of steemians from the London area at SteemFest this week. She will be talking to them about ideas for a regional event. I am looking forward to hearing more from that.
I believe there is an ongoing program of local social meetups around London. If anyone has any details do let me know and I will add in here.
Lloyd Davis @lloyddavis, based in Guildford in the South East, is considering holding another SteemCampUK event. The location isn't decided yet, but he is open to ideas...
Wales and the South West
Over the next few weeks I will be regularly visiting various towns in west Wales (Aberystwyth, Carmarthen, Aberaeron) as well as Swansea and Bristol. If anyone fancies a mini-meetup in any of those places let me know.
And if anyone has any project ideas that might benefit from funding through steem's crowdfunding platform Fundition.io I am happy to help with putting together project proposals.
I am still looking towards holding some sort of film related event in the region - probably in Bristol. Anyone interested?
@cryptocurator is researching crypto related events in the region.
I believe there might be some local mini-meetups happening in the region...?
Targeting niche communities
@raj808 is considering ideas for working with creative writing groups and courses in universities.
I wonder if there are other niche communities we could target...?
A buddy system
A suggestion has been made that we should develop a 'UK Steem Buddy System' or mentoring to help onboarding and improve retention. Anyone interested in helping with this>
@ura-soul is also working on improving the signup and onboarding process.
The full recording of the first UK Steem Virtual Meetup is available if you missed it...
Steemians in the UK - currently 130
These are all the active steemians currently identified in the UK. If you know anyone else that should be added please post in the comments or message me on Discord (@Pennsif#9921).
The suggestion has also been made to include expats. That works for me - any expats that would like to be added?

Are you a Brit living abroad that would still like to lend your support to developing Steem in the UK?
