This Thursday's Society for Clinton Hill meeting will be focused entirely around local blogging. I'll be there with Van (of Lunchtime with Tillie) on behalf of CHB.  Also slated to present are Jon Butler of Brownstoner and Andy Newman, recently departed from The Local.

Come on out to learn more about the folks behind these blogs, ask questions and get aquainted with the Society.

Hope to see you there!
