After posting the other week about organising a bloggers meetup, we got a good response so we’re going ahead. Here’s the details:
The Preston Bloggers Meetup will be bringing together all the blogging talent in Preston, along with those interested in starting a blog, to find out more about blogging. You do not need to have your own blog to come along.
There will be a guest presentation from pro-blogger, Andy Dickinson, on how to start up and run a successful blog and the opportunity to ask his advice. Find out how it’s easy to setup and get going and add your voice to the blogsphere.
Preston has an ever-growing blog scene and this is the chance for those who blog to come together and meet other bloggers and also pass on tips to those who want to blog.
A few of the more experienced bloggers in the Preston community will be on hand to answer any queries people might have on how they can improve their blog, technical problems or just any issues they might be having. A kind of ‘bloggers surgery’ if you will.
The event will be held in the Snug at the New Continental in Broadgate on Wednesday 13th May 2009. We can only take 40 people, so make sure you register to reserve your place. It’s a 7.30 PM start, we don’t know what time we’ll finish.
If you can’t make it along, you can follow on twitter using the #prestonbloggers tag.
The event is being organised by Preston Blog and Preston Writing Network.
We hope you’ll join us to chill out with a beverage, possibly a laptop and learn/talk about social media.
