It's time for another London Bloggers Meetup and this is one you won't want to miss. If you’ve ever wondered about the world of PR and how, as a blogger, you should be working with PR agencies then this is the event for you. Alternatively, if you’ve already been contacted by PR agencies pitching products or competitions, you might like to come along and share your experiences. We have a panel of expert speakers including: The Bloggers: Cate Sevilla, Bitchbuzz.com Pete Stean, The Londoneer Chris Osburn, Tikichris The PR experts: Matt Churchill, Edelman Stephen Waddington, Speed Laurence Borel, Mindshare And that's not all, the fine folks at Edelman have put some money behind the bar, so get yourselves along early to take advantage of a free beverage or two.

    Yes, It was an excellent evening. I, as an entrepreneur, wanted to learn how to engage with bloggers and I have got the best lesson from the insightful discussion yesterday. Looking forward to the next one.

    Thanks a lot.

    Interesting discussion tho it did seem as though everyone was agreeing on the obvious. perhaps did highlight how some people assume PR is the same as Advertising.

    Great fun to meet people who are trying all sorts of different things. Would say that bloggers (people who write web logs) are really just a modern version of journalists (who used to write/ write for journals. PRs, well I've been there and it can be a god-forsaken task. Good PRs (people who help people and organisations express themselves and support journalists by researching good stories for them to develop. :)

    Good meeting. Nothing changes but the names: journalist ... someone who writes a journal; blogger ... someone who write a web log; PR someone who helps someone else write and publish their story (sometimes well, sometimes badly). Thanks ... great evening

    A great meetup with so many people attending. A great chance to chat to like minded bloggers and PR. Some great connections made and a lively debate on blogging / PR issues which was interesting. I'll definitely be at the next meetup.

    Did anyone record the PR talk last night (think I saw someone with a Flip) - would be fab if they could put it on YouTube. Awesome #LBM as always Andy!

    Really? I'm terrified - I'll need a few whiskies before I sit down on that panel (in all seriousness I have a terrible head cold and whisky helps alleviate the symptoms - at least for a while :) )
