Bloggers meet (yet again!)


As you may have already read elsewhere, there's some chat about having another wee gathering of those blog-minded folks (and indeed, those who comment on blogs - so as not to exclude anyone) at some point before the end of August.

As I (apparently) did such a good job the last time round (journo and occasional blogger Iain Macwhirter made a swift appearance late on) Duncan nominated me to put it to the blogosphere to suggest some dates/ times/ places.

The current suggestion that is kicking around is that, given it is Edinburgh Festival time (and that those of us who live/ work/ blog in the city were chatting about it) is that we meet somewhere here, take in the sights and sounds of the Fringe - perhaps even a show - sometime in the last couple of weeks of August (being either the week beginning the 24th or the 31st of August).

I'm going out on a limb on my own here, and suggesting that, like last year, we find somewhere near the Udderbelly at Bristo Square on the basis that it is fairly easy to find and pretty close to a couple of venues. As for dates etc, I'm fairly flexible - if you have any suggestions or are particularly interested in going to see a particular show, you know where to put your comments (that is, below the article - or direct them to Duncan, Will or Jeff who seem to be the organising committee). We just seem to be gauging interest at the moment.

Anyway, for anyone who hasn't been to one of these things, they're usually pretty good fun. Folks have strong views (otherwise - in most cases - the blogs would be pretty boring!) but in "real" life they are all pretty approachable, laid back and fun to have a drink and a chat with! So, if you can make it along, its worth it. And for those who have been before, its always nice to see you all again!

Midweek would be good, weekends are a bit busy this month and next. Tuesday 25th August or Thursday 27th August would be ideal...

It'll be nice to meet some of the bloggers (and commenters) who didn't manage along to the last get together. Who will be your surprise guest this time Malc? Ian McWhirter will be a hard act to follow (esoecially as he bought a round of drinks!) no pressure..

I'm quite happy - indeed, eager - to engage in debate with others when the topic provides opportunity to do so. I like knowing who I'm debating with and I'm fed up with some abusive anonymous comments so I've disabled those comments for awhile. If you want to comment, log in - it only takes a minute.
