Central Mississippi Blogger Meet Up

On Saturday May 5th, WJTV-TV in Jackson, Mississippi will host the first Central Mississippi Blogger Meet Up.

WJTV-TV in Jackson has graciously agreed to serve as host for a blogger meet-up at 11 o’clock a.m. on Saturday, May 5th. Refreshments will be served and everyone who attends will get the hottest in channel 12 swag, including a T-shirt and a cool mousepad (if the printer can get them there in time).

This is a social event, so come prepared to meet and make new friends. If you know of a local blogger who’s not on the list here, please let me know or feel free to invite them, too. We’d like to meet everybody.

My name is Terry Heaton, and I’ve been blogging since 2002. I’ve participated in blogger meet-ups both globally and at the local level in several communities, including San Francisco, Nashville, Raleigh and Dallas. I helped WKRN-TV in Nashville build “Nashville is Talking,” a beloved aggregator site of the local blogosphere there. That station also runs an aggregator of political blogs in the state of Tennessee called “Volunteer Voters.”

WJTV-TV is interested in getting to know bloggers in the area, and we thought this would be a good way to get started. Again, this is a social event; there’s no agenda for the station other than helping facilitate this meet-up. We recognize the significance of the personal media revolution, and we want to listen to what you’re saying. We think this is a good way to start.

News Channel 12 anchors Byron Brown and Linda Allen will be there, along with Chief Meteorologist Tony Mastro. So come by, say hello, and get your picture taken at the anchor desk.

Please use the RSVP function of this Evite to let us know if you’re coming. We want to make sure we have enough food for everybody.
