KATU Portland-blogger invites blanket the area
I received a strange eVite from Portland ABC affiliate KATU inviting me to a blogger get together that they are hosting.
KATU wants to get to know the blogging community and is interested in joining the conversation. There’s no agenda, other than to enjoy some food and beverages courtesy of our hosts. Meet fellow bloggers, view (and photograph!) the television studios and have some fun!
And I’m not alone. Nearly 300 Portland area bloggers got the same thing.
Out of the blue. Yet intriguing, nonetheless.
Maybe Amanda is coming to town. Or maybe it’s just a ploy to raise KATU’s visibility, given that this was included:
To help spread the word (and hear what fellow bloggers are saying about this meetup), let’s tag our blog posts and photos “KATUmeetup”.
Other mentions, so far, include:
- Dawn Foster
- Furious Nads
- Metroblogging Portland
- Perry Perkins
- Nancy Rommelmann
- Richard Sipe
- Brian Westbrook
Did you get one? What’s your take? Someone from KATU care to elaborate? Or perhaps Brian Westbrook who seems to be the eViter for the event?
One thing is for sure, Portland Mercury’s Blogtown PDX is not happy with the snub.
