[HTML2]There’s no doubt that Portland loves its blogging. Blogs here, blogs there, blogs blogs everywhere. But when it comes to blogging about Portland itself? No blog does a better job than
OurPDX, the network of Portland bloggers who cover all things Portland.

Ooh. We’re getting close now. Just a few short days and we’ll be in the thick of the planning for

Business Leader Northwest—a leadership conference being held February 25 and 26 at the Oregon Convention Center—is pulling in a number of big names for the conference. People like Stephen Covey, Burgerville Chairman Tom Mears, and Umpqua’s Ray Davis.

Still on the fence about whether or not to attend? Maybe you should read some posts from these bloggers on the
Business Leader NW blog.
How about now? Really? Even with all of those cool bloggers and their insights and stuff?
Okay, fine. Here’s another push:
$25 of your entry fee goes to the non-profit of your choice.
See? I knew that would get you, you old softie. So why don’t you
go register and we’ll see you in the blogger pavilion at some point.
