well, i apologize i didn't make myself clear. i want to do everything online as i am not physically in bellvue at this time. i don't want to do print ads or fliers. so, for example i want to post somewhere an ad something like this; "party in the country, address (googlemap or mapquest if can't find); date; time", etc. so, where would i post this ad to get get the most responce. i opened your links. the first appeared to be a facebook profile just for the town of bellvue. i didn't see a place to post my party. if there is , please advise. the 2nd link i didn't see anything for bellvue. please clarify. thanks, j
well, i tried americantowns/bellvue. that seemed geared toward concerts and more formal events. i tried socialnetwork. that referred me to craigslist. craigslist does not have a link for bellvue, iowa. i haven't tried twitter. but, what site would a younger person go to any night they might be looking for a party or something to do in or near bellvue, iowa. is there a blog or chat room for bellvue. if so, how would i find it. thanks, j
considering the geographic area probably any where from 5000 to 200,000 if i include larger towns in a 60 mile radius. are group, 16 to 46.
well, i wouldn't say kids. maybe i should raise age 10 18 and older. be a large party with beer, pop and snacks, bbq. probably start at 3pm till "whenever".
no companies. this is a private affair; kind of a get to know neighbors. this iowa so, i'm not concerned who comes. plus, i got football buddies to weed out rif-raf.
weel, i went to meetup.com. without entering any info i immediately got links for groups that are in des moines, iowa where i'm currently locatrd. how did the site know i was in des moines. i don't want to create a group or pay a fee. i apparently am not getting my need expalined clearly.
here's the scenario. if i'm somebody who lives in small town iowa and it's a friday night , i'm bored and i want to find a party within a half hours drive. what site, blog, chat room would i go to? thanks, j
well, i went back to meetup.com. i entered parties within 60 miles of bellvue, iowa. nothing. then young professional social clubs within 40 miles of bellvue, iowa. nothing. then within 100 miles. nothing. then within 250 miles. this would include des moines, iowa and, i know there are social clubs for young professionals but, still came up nothing. how come. are there not blogs and chat rooms for bellvue, iowa. thanks, j
i don't understand. you left the search criteria blank but, got 17 groups. how did you get that without any criteria. how do you even get bellvue , iowa. so, please explain from the home page what and where do i enter without having to sign in or be a member. thanks, j
well, i clicked on find a group; i changed 5 miles to 50 miles; i then clicked on des moines; i got a drop down box and typed in bellvue, iowa; i then clicked on it but it would not change from des moines to bellvue. how come; i also just ried clicking on group after typing in bellvue but, only got groups for des moines.
well, i also clicked enter and got results but every group was from the quad cities. so, i reduced miles to 25 and got results for dubuque. iowa which is more than 25 miles from bellvue. so, then i went down to 10 miles and got no results. so, can i assume there are no groups on meetup.com for bellevue, iowa.
p.s. what about twitter and facebook. i know of them but, know very little about them nor how to use them.
i opened your 25 mile link and got 3 groups. the driftless group is for dubque and praire du chien which is about 70 miles north of dubuque. the 2 others were dubuque groups. dubuque is about 40 miles norht of bellevue.
bellevue people in the 18 to 40 age group surely communicate thru some media. as i mentioned how about facebook or twitter.
well, i haven't moved to bellevue yet so, i can't pound the pavement. . let me set up this scenario. your stranded in a desert. all you have is an internet connection on your iphone smartphone, whatever. you desperately need to get ahold of the drugstore in bellevue, iowa because it has the special formula for your much needed medicine. but, the store has no website; you can't email nor call. so, you desperately need to message anyone in bellevue to get to the drugstore, give them the message about your med, then helicopter it to you via gps. so, how you going to contact someone in bellevue. thanks, j
