What happens when bloggers get together?


20-or-so bloggers got together in central Manchester to learn from each other but also to talk with blogging ‘professionals’ from the BBC. Far too much beer and food was consumed however the session was primarily arranged to encourage more local bloggers to write about their community and what’s going on in it.

The BBC’s Richard Fair commented “there are some great things that go on in our city and we really want to encourage the bloggers to go out and write about them. It’s working too” Its for this purpose that the meet-up was organised to coincide with the Manchester International Festival which features scores of local musicians and 25 specially comisioned acts.

The BBC Manchester blog team are frequently covering local events such as these and unlike most other BBC blogs which concentrate on one person or topic, the Manchester blog stands on its own as one which carries no set agenda other than a geographic area.
