This Thursday, 05/22/08, a handful of us local bloggers & Twitterers (is that the right word for Twitter users?) are getting together at Appalachian Brewing Company on Cameron Street for food, suds, and general camaraderie. We’ll be upstairs at the Abbey Bar, which means plenty of free WiFi and smoke-free air. The meetup is open to anyone from Central PA who partakes in any form of new media — blogs, podcasts, and what have you — along with all of our new-found local friends on Twitter. Things will get started at 6pm, and we’ll probably wrap up around 9.
We’ve had a few of these meetups before, and they’ve always been a lot of fun. More of a friendly get-together than a formal presentation, this is a great chance to come out and meet your fellow bloggers / Twitter users. Put some faces to the templates, if you will.
Since this will be the first meeting for (hopefully) a lot of us, we’re going to keep things lightweight. In the future, we’ll cover topics like promotion, advertising & revenue, SEO, publishing platforms, and more. But for right now, the plan is to make this more of a meet-and-greet than anything else. One thing we’ll definitely be discussing is the demand for (and frequency of) future meetings, so if you have any interest whatsoever in helping to shape the Central PA blogging community, you’ll definitely want to be here. We’ll also be talking about how we can incorporate more of the local blogging community on blogHarrisburg.
