THE HEDON BLOGGER is delighted to be in Leeds at the weekend taking part in Talk About Local 2010. This event will bring together some of the most enthusiastic hyperlocal publishers in the country.
Unlike a traditional ‘conference’ the items under discussion are not arranged by the organisers in advance, but arranged by those attending on the day. Whilst this might seem chaotic, in actual fact it ensures that people get to discuss what they really want to.
Early pre-discussions indicate that sessions are likely to take place on:
- Newsgathering methods
- Covering the General Election
- Meeting the costs (even a ‘free’ blog costs!)
- Hyperlocal – the next steps?
I wrote about last years event which was inspirational and had me buzzing for weeks. I expect to come back with the same fire and determination from this event!
