Pittsburgh bloggers, unite! In person!

If you are within 60 or so miles of the junction of the Monongahela and Allegheny rivers to form the Ohio, and you have a blog or read blogs (you know who you are: you’re reading this), please take note:

We are planning an event that you must attend.

WHAT: Pittsburgh Blogfest
WHEN: Thursday, October 28, 5:30 – 9:30 pm and later
WHERE: Finnegan’s Wake (near PNC Park, 20 General Robinson St., North Shore, 412-325-2601), in the Pub Room
WHO: You
AND: Inner Bitch, Creating Text(iles), Grabass, My Brilliant Mistakes, many more
WHY: We seem to have so much in common. We should meet.
AND ALSO: We want to create a Great Directory of Pittsburgh Blogs, and this will be a nice way to kick it off.

We meet, talk, laugh, cry, eat, drink, complain about comment spam, compare sad tales of long and wonderful entries we’ve written that were lost to the ether when we tried to post, eat and drink some more…. It’ll be great fun. And there will be Live Knitting.

We know there have been other, previous blog events in the area, and we hope to build upon them. There now seems to be a critical mass of blogs here. Let’s have fun.

Please RSVP so we can warn the nice people at Finnegan’s Wake how many blogging types to expect. Send an email to blogfest at closkey dot com. (We’re still working out the domain name for the Great Directory.)

See you there.
