Manchester Blogmeet March 31


Time for another gathering of the blogging clans. Yes, our spring blogmeet is upon us, and this one will take place on Wednesday March 31st from 6-8 pm in The Kestrel Suite at Common. It sounds very fancy, but don't worry, it's just the extra room they added on in their recent renovation. For those who haven't been before, Common is the bright green bar on Edge Street in the Northern Quarter (just off High Street). They serve a full range of hot drinks and tasty snacks as well as a fine selection of beer, wine and spirits.

The drinks will be courtesy of our sponsor for this blogmeet, Skiddle.com. Jamie Scahill and Richard Dyer will be on hand to tell us more about their site. They say: "Now in its 9th year of operation, it's is officially one of the largest and fastest growing what's on guides in the UK. With over 222,306 events listed, 620,000 unique visitors and 119,754 registered members we offer the ideal platform for club promoters, festivals and event organisers to promote their event."

As always, you don't have to RSVP but you can always leave a comment to let me know you're coming. Or just turn up. All bloggers are welcome, so if you haven't made it to a blogmeet before please don't be shy. It's a chance to meet your online comrades in a relaxed and friendly setting. And it's usually lots of fun.

Right then. I have written in this in my diary in pen, over-written in permanent marker, then had it tattoed onto my forehead in mirror writing.

I'm determined to make it this time!

(You'll recognise me. I'll be the one with the slightly disturbing tattoo on his forehead.)

Couple of us from Now Then Manchester will be coming along representing the blogspot and hopefully finding some features writers for the magazine (launch date is now May due to advertising issues - what else!). Looking forward to it!

This is across the road so there is no excuse not to be there and they serve mighty fine beer too.
