Tonight, HoCo Blogs will sponsor yet another HoCo Blogtail party. These gatherings are unique to HoCo and have grown from a handful of people four years ago to an expected attendance of over a hundred tonight. It’s been pretty amazing to witness this growth. What was originally intended as an attempt to tone down some of the nastier rhetoric between bloggers with opposing opinions has evolved into something much bigger. I’m just not quite sure what that is yet.
Don’t get me wrong. It’s all good. There is a certain richness to wide variety of HoCo loco blogs that cover every conceivable topic under the sun. These gatherings provide the opportunity to meet face to face with the people who write the blogs as well as those who read and comment on them. It is also heartening for me to see, that among those expected to attend tonight, are at least three of that handful of bloggers from that first gathering in the fall of 2007.
This is by no means an exclusive group. Jesse Newburn, the grand dame of HoCo Blogs, encourages all who have an interest in the HoCo loco blog conversations to attend. The gathering will be held at The Stanford Grill in
from 5:30 til 7:30 PM and is co-sponsored by The Sun. Columbia
I intend to drop by, albeit late due to a previously scheduled event with my daughter. I won’t likely make it until around 7:00 PM, but better late than never as they say. I hope to see you there.
