The Blogging Pool

This is most of the crowd that turned up for Blog Standard at QUB on Jan 11. That's me in the middle twiddling with a beard and one other member is, of course, holding the camera.
It was a good session, with presentations by Ruth Jackson, Jude Collins, Oliver Corr and Bronagh Lawson.
Steve McBride and Geoff McGimpsey who were there will hopefully share their blogging ambitions with us at later meetings.
We have a decent room in the Peter Froggatt Centre now with a projector, a computer that works and audio.
Until now we have been using the seminar room in the Seamus Heaney Centre for Poetry, which I am planning to rename, The Seamus Heaney Centre for Poetry, Broadcast Journalism, Memoir, Blogging and Ribald Exchanges.
