a few places left for headshift blogging event

There are just a few spaces left for a special seminar about blogging
which Headshift is co-hosting in cooperation with Six Apart, makers of the blogging tool Movable Type

event, taking place this Thursday (25 Sept. 2008) in London, is aimed
at helping senior editors, social media stakeholders, online community
managers and those leading corporate blogging efforts to learn more
about emerging tools and techniques for building participatory
communities around their properties.

The event will provide
participants with a strategic overview of blogging and a demonstration
of creative techniques developed during my former role as the Head of Blogging at the BBC, and since evolved further by the social media team here at Headshift.

More specifically, guests at the event will learn:

  • what differentiates blogging from traditional web publishing
  • simple techniques for weaving social media into your existing processes, and generating content for your blog along the way
  • how to position your blog(s) as the centre of your distributed web presence
  • how to reach out and engage with existing third party audiences using your blog

Khalid Arif and Maarten Schenk from Six Apart
will demonstrate the new functionality found in the latest release of
Movable Type (4.2), and integration specialists from Headshift will
discuss the benefits of combining blogging, page publishing and social
networking in the new version of MT and showcase several interesting
MT-based implementations.

We have room for just a few more
participants so if you are interested in attending, and are able to
make it to Headshift’s Tower Bridge based headquarters on Thursday afternoon, you can request an invitation by emailing info@headshift.com with your details.

Oh, and did I mention, we’re laying on free wine, beer and other refreshments…


  1. Thanks for the reminder Robin. I got the invite, but can’t make it. I arrive in UK Thurs 1pm and have meetings straight through to 5.30pm ish, but a beer on Friday night would be welcome ;)

  2. You probably know all the stuff we’re talking about anyway Graham! But thanks for *wanting* to come. Let us know when you are free on Friday. I can’t, however, do after school as I’ve got lots of stuff on in the evenings next week.
