The BlogTogether Birthday Bash - Oct 19, 2010

Sep 26, 2010

As you might know, I recently celebrated 10 years of blogging.

And, as you also might know, I like to organize BlogTogether events, such as the annual ScienceOnline conference, food blogging dinner with Michael Ruhlman and the summertime BlogTogether Backyard Barbecue, which I used to hold at my home in Durham before I moved back to Carrboro.

But, we haven’t had a backyard barbecue in a while. So, let’s have a bash, instead (we did this once before for the Triangle Bloggers Bash at WUNC’s American Tobacco studios).

Tues, Oct. 19th — 7:30pm
Please join me at the BlogTogether Birthday Bash on Tuesday, October 19, 2010 at 7pm. We’ll have this party at Casbah, a new club/bar in the Brightleaf District of Durham.

Free for all bloggers (and their readers)
The BlogTogether Birthday Bash will be a free event open to writers and readers in North Carolina. Our goal: to celebrate all the bloggers in the Triangle — no matter how short or long you’ve been at it.

So come ready to meet your blogging heroes, introduce yourself to new friends, and enjoy the diversity of our regional blogging activities (education, politics, technology, food, faith, and so much more).

Share a story
We’ll ask a handful of bloggers to get up on stage and tell a story about what blogging has meant to them or done for them, and share a highlight of something they’re particularly proud of having accomplished because of blogging.

After half a dozen or so prepared stories, we’ll throw it open to the crowd for anyone who wants 5 minutes to share a highlight or read a memorable post or thank someone in the audience for their blog mentorship.

On the registration form, please tell me if you’d like to share your story or speak to the crowd.

Cash bar, and grab dinner on Main St.
The bar, with good local and draft brews, will be a cash bar. Consider going to dinner before at any of the fantastic restaurants along Main Street and in Brightleaf Square. It’s a birthday bash, so we might have a special surprise, too.

Register now
Register here and see who else is coming to the bash.

Sponsorship opportunity
I’m looking for an organization or company that might want to help cover the cost of pupus (Hawaiian for finger food, or hor’doeurves), or wants to donate an iPad or other door prizes. Please contact me at

OK, mark your calendars for 10/19/2010, go register and get ready to celebrate our blogging endeavors together.
