10/26: BlogHer Meetup in Seattle

BlogHer Original Post

Time for a BlogHer meet-up outside of Silicon Valley!

Since Jory and I are both headed to Seattle at the end of this month for the Blog Business Summit, we figured it was the perfect opportunity. And the kind folks at Blog Business Summit kicked in to make it really worth a BlogHer's while to show up. They're letting any BlogHer join their hosted evening reception for the Blog Business Summit, simply by uttering the super-secret password ("BlogHer Meet-up"...sneaky, huh?) Here are the deets:

WHEN: October 26th, 2006
TIME: 6:00PM-7:30PM (and then it's off to the nearest bar!)
WHERE: Bell Harbor Conference Center: Odyssey Maritime Discovery Center
2211 Alaskan Way, Pier 66
Seattle, WA 98121

EVENT: The Blog Business Summit welcome reception
HOSTED: Bar and Hors D'ouevres

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q. Do I need to be attending the conference or a business blogger to use the super-secret password and attend the meet-up

A. No! All Seattle-area BlogHers should show up and crash the Business Blogging party!

Q. Well, what if I do want to attend the Conference...is it too late?

A. Actually, no. The BBS folks still have room and if you use another code, BH06SJ, you can get $100 off the registration fee for any package (regular package prices are: Full Day Pre-Conference Workshop on 10/25 = $395.00; Full Two-Day Conference on 10/26-10/27 = $695.00; All three days = $995.00.)

Q. Why are you two going, and are any other BlogHers going to be there?

A. Why, thank you for asking. Jory's participating on two panels; I'm participating on one, and numerous other BlogHers are participating too, including Mary Hodder, Tara Hunt, Ponzi Indharasophang, Liz Lawley, Maryam Scoble and Halley Suitt. The schedule deets are here.

Q. What will we do at this meet-up?

A. We will convene, connect names/URLs to faces, drink cocktails, eat crudite, take it to the bar when we get kicked out for being rowdy and, oh yeah, collect any and all feedback you might want to share about the site, the conferences, the ad network, the works.
