Sign up for Charlotte Blogs

Are you a blogger? Or do you want to learn more about blogging in the Charlotte region? In November, the Observer is hosting the first-ever organized gathering of local bloggers in its uptown office. Whether you write about sports, politics, business or your life in general, you're invited. Expert panelists will tell you what goes into a great blog and how to let others know about it – and you'll meet other people like you. The keynote speaker is Mark Jaquith, lead developer for WordPress, which currently hosts over 4 million blogs. Novices welcome. Registration is $15.99 for the event, including lunch and a T-shirt, if you sign up by Oct. 31. The event is 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 15. To register, go to Questions? Contact Steve Gunn at
