Welcome, New England Kossacks! As some of you may know, I've inherited the mantle of coordinating the Northern New England Meet-ups (previously the "Cheers and Jeers" meetups) from Common Sense Mainer.

Many of us would agree that the three meetups we had in Portsmouth each year worked well, and I'd like to continue that tradition. So, I'd like to announce a meet-up for Saturday, February 16th, 2013 from 1pm-4-pm. This is tentatively scheduled for our usual venue of Margarita's Restaurant in Portsmouth, NH. I will post another diary soon with the RSVP-by date.

I'm excited to take over the co-ordination of these events from Common Sense Mainer, but I'll still rely on you to support our meet-ups through your participation and attendance.  As a newbie to the blogosphere, I hope to bring about the most attention to meet ups with the least amount of stepping on toes in the process.  

Just a word about how these meetups have been in the past and how--based on talking to some of the people who have regularly attended--folks would like to see them continue in the future: these meetups are an opportunity to get together and talk politics, pooties, knitting, beer, Daily Kos, you name it. Above all, they have been casual and fun, and we'd like to keep it that way.  I hope that if you should ever be in the neighborhood when we're meeting you'll make it a point to join in!  Be looking for more information in upcoming diaries and emails. Thank you!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
