Why Nashville bloggers don’t live-blog meetups: I feel compelled to respond to visiting lostremote.com blogger Steve Safran, who smacked down the local folks attending this a.m.’s meetup with the complaint that “nobody (was) liveblogging…Come on, gang. A local station is reaching out. It’s worth writing about.”
Steve, first let me point out that writing about WKRN reaching out is something I have done on many, many occasions. So I think I can speak for a few bloggers in Nashville when I suggest that Nashville bloggers get together to visit and laugh together — to do lots of things herds of monkeys enjoy doing when they get together (heck, we even enjoy pickiing fleas off one another) — and then when it’s all over, we’ll blog about it.
While I think Michael Roseblum is truly about the most entertaining and enlightening presenter one could enjoy, sitting down for a presentation is not the Nashville blogger meetup way. That said, Steve, I think you did a swell job of blogging the meetup, especially of Michael Rosenblum’s standup. However hanging out with folks like Aunt B is more pleasant when I have my computer shut-off.
