The Los Angeles Chapter of the Online News Association is hosting a “Meet the Bloggers” party on Thursday at the L.A. Times building downtown.
They’re luring people with free pizza, awkwardly worded press releases and a chance to meet Luke Ford.
Um… despite their best efforts, we’re sure it’s going to be a happening event.
The group’s press release follows:
While the outcome of the presidential election may not be known, one thing is for certain: bloggers have a huge and growing impact on the Internet, covering just about every topic imaginable.
Join local Southern California bloggers in what is sure to be a lively round table discussion. Participants will get a chance to question the speakers as well as share their own opinions and ideas. It will be an insightful night into the life of a blogger (and we might even find out the answer to the big question: are they making any money?)
Did we mention we will have free pizza and head over to a cool bar afterwards?
