It's time for another Cardiff Blogs meet, hooray! The topic for the October meetup is:
We've lined up two blogs from the Wales Blog Awards shortlist to talk about what it's like to run a themed blog and how they feel about being shortlisted. Tom Fowler will be talking about Radical Wales, shortlisted for Political Blog and Steve Devereux will be introducing us to Motown Junkies, which is in the Entertainment & Music category.
In addition to the talks from Tom and Steve we'll also be launching our logo design competition so if you're interesting in winning some prizes in exchange for a logo, come along and hear the details :)
The meetup will be taking place at The Maldron Hotel on Saint Mary Street, which is right next to the bus station and central train station. There's free Wi-Fi, so tweeting during the event is encouraged (just try to keep it clean, please!) The hashtag is #cdfblogs. They've also kindly agreed to give us a 10% discount on all the drinks purchased at the bar. (Thanks guys!)
The main event will begin 6:30pm with the speakers starting at 7.00pm. We've made it a little earlier to enable people to get to bed at a reasonable hour (it is a Monday after all) but if you can't make it for 6:30pm don't worry, just turn up whenever you can, we'll still be happy to see you.
Cardiff Blogs as always is kindly sponsored by the lovely folk over at Warwick Emmanuel PR & Film. Cardiff based Warwick Emmanuel PR was set up in 2001 by Elizabeth Warwick and Wynford Emanuel. The company offers both traditional public relations and new media - specialising in podcasts, web films and social networking. For more information please check out www.wepr.co.uk

Don't forget: our events are free to attend and open to everyone so if you're not a blogger (or not from Cardiff!) don't worry! We'll love you just as much if you come, we promise :)
