May blogger meetup

There was another London Blogger Meetup last night. As always, organiser Andy Bargery did a bang-up job with venue and presentations.

It was held at Shish on Old Street. Upstairs it looks like a close-to-fast-food Moroccan/Middle East restaurant. Downstairs, though, there’s a fairly funky bar, which we had reserved. It was just right for lounging and mingling, I thought.

We had two presentations, too. The first was from group member and author Floyd Smith (if you’re a fan of the Dummies Guides you might know him as Bud E. Smith). He gave an interesting talk on how to turn your blog into a book, using the fact of pre-existing content and built-in test audiences as major helping points. I wonder if there’s a book waiting to be self-published in my music blog?

The second, shorter presentation was from member Jaz Cummins, who outlined a really nifty and very participatory campaign for Refugee Week called Simple Acts. Check it out and do something.

Of course, there were also a few drinks imbibed and much chit-chat made with folks new and familiar.
