Sociable Bloggers

geek.jpgWhen you hear the word “blogger,” what comes to mind? Some geeky, reserved person hunched over a computer, anonymously tossing out fatuous opinions for no-one to read?

Not! At least, not the marketing-type bloggers I virtually hang with.

In fact, 80+ of them are coming from around the world (literally) to socialize face-to-face at the upcoming Blogger Social in NYC (April 4-6).

If you’re one of the attendees, you know the knock-out events that are planned. But did you know that you have several options on Sunday if you’re a local type, or if you’re an import staying over the weekend? Here are the ones I know about:

- Brunch, being organized by Ryan Barrett

- Yankees game, bring organized by Mark Goren

- Backyard barbecue at my place, being organized by…well, me.

The best way to indicate your interest is to go to the BS’08 Meetup Board and sign up. I’m sure you can contact the organizers directly if that’s easier for you (please do so ASAP, so we can plan properly).

So here are all those Blogger Socialites, with links to profiles for each of them:

    Wow, Steve. You really rocked this series.

    I would LOVE to make it to the BBQ, but my departure falls in that window. :(
