Hey everyone - thanks so much for coming out last night for Flatmate Meetup! If you didn't have a chance to make it, we had close to 30 people
, and a great festive vibe. Smiles were formed, hands were shaken, numbers were exchanged, and hopefully - roommates were found. I put some pictures
up for ya'll to reminisce.PR HELP
Some of you may have heard me say last night: I WANT TV CAMERAS
at a Flatmate Meetup by the end of this summer. I'm trying to grow this thing by getting some press, and it's been good so far: we've been in/on/whatever Gaper's Block, TimeOut, & finally The Red Eye yesterday. Next stop: a feature article in one of these or other pubs (i.e. The Chicago Tribune). I'm not certain what the story is yet: people looking to split bills in the economy, people getting offline to get the things they need, or just a cool idea? So:
- If you have a PR background: I'd love to hear your input.
- If you know people in the press: tell them about Flatmate Meetup or send me an intro.
The more people who know about this thing, the easier it's going to be for the people of Chicago to find places.
P.S. All of your smiling faces and warm words have kept me doing this for more than two years running. Thanks, you guys are great!
