Blogging for Business Aftermath

The Blogging for Business event organised by Tom for the IT Association of Cork went well last night; I think there were about 20 or so attendees, and the four speakers contrasted each other nicely: a prolific blogger (Maura), a researcher (me), a journalist (Richard) and an IT consultant (Tom). Some of the attendees said they have been inspired to start their own personal / professional blogs, so the Irish blogosphere will grow some more…

Gavin got very drunk, well not really, but he says he did, and we had an interesting discussion about a compromising photo of Condoleeza Rice taken by the Google Maps satellite, or am I getting confused. Argh, I need more sleep…

As mentioned by Tom above, the Blogging for Business event is on this coming Thursday in the National Software Centre in Cork.

The event is aimed at educating business people on the potential advantages to them and their business of blogging.

The presentations are as follows:

Maura McHugh – Introduction / overview of the blogging scene.
Dr. John Breslin – How blog content can be fed to mail clients, news readers, websites using syndication.
Richard Delevan – Authenticity, authority and audacity or how the audience perceives the voice in the blog.
Tom Raftery – Blogging and search engine optimisation: how a blog can put your site in the Google top 10.
