First Northern UK Blogging Meet-Up – Success

Jamie talks Woopra

Photo by strawbleu

The first Northern UK Bloggers Meet-up took place last friday at the Old Broadcasting House, Leeds. Well, half of it, the other half was in the Dry Dock pub (see a picture of the Dry Dock in daylight) – great venues, both!

Post Northern Blogger's Meet-upI think it is fair to say a good time was had by all.

Jamie did an excellent talk about Woopra and gave out beta invites (which it seems we might not be able to legally use due to some UK/European privacy and data protection regulations, but I don’t think that is going to stop anyone).

After we ooh’ed and aah’ed over Woopra and debated the utility of it, we all did a short show-and-tell about our blogs, giving handy tips and learning more about each other in the process.

The first reports I have seen are here and here – please add your links to blog posts, video or pics in the comments if you were there πŸ™‚

If you want to see pictures of what went on, check out the following locations:

It seems everyone is up for another, so if you live in or around northern UK, watch this space and join the discussion list.

  11. Chris,

    I think the trend of bloggers and Twitters meeting up is outstanding. We all learn from each other and are encouraged. I especially like the part about meeting @ the pub. Very cool, very trendy.

    Cheers!

    My write-up of the night is here – http://www.zath.co.uk/northern-uk-bloggers-meet-up/

    Also thanks for your thoughts on my site – I’d been in two minds about splitting the content across several sites for a while now, I’m now veering towards concentrating on building up Zath as it is now (content-wise).

    Cheers!

  29. @Suzanne – I think every region needs something like this, I am sure Tony would be only too happy to set up wiki and email list space for it πŸ™‚

    @David – The pub was cool, once we escaped the over-loud music … does that make me officially old?

    @Andrew – Great meeting you and thanks for the write-up πŸ™‚

    @brenda – Why limit it? πŸ™‚

    @Zath – I think it would be worth asking your readers for their input but yeah, why make your life harder while diluting it? I am sure with a lot of hard work and promotion you could make split sites work and generate more revenue but your combined site is great and I am sure will continue to be popular πŸ™‚

    @Jon – Hope to see you there πŸ™‚

    @woody – Looks like you are doing just fine with your English πŸ™‚

    @Toga – Certainly will πŸ˜‰

    @Benjamin – If not, drive up to our all-day event πŸ™‚

    @Grant – Glasgow is in the North, you are welcome to come down to the next one πŸ˜‰
