Rust Belt Blogger Summit On The Way

Thanks to the efforts of Jim Russell and I’m sure many others, Erie PA will be hosting the first “Rust Belt” blog summit which hopefully will provide an opportunity for ongoing linkages and collaborations in the future.

Hopefully the people behind great Pittsburgh blogs like:

The Pittsburgh Metroblog
Pittsburgh Dish
Iheart Pittsburgh
Burgh Diaspora
Pittsburgh Comet
Tube City Almanac
Null Space
Walking Pittsburgh
Bike Pittsburgh Blog

Will get to meet the folks behind blogs like

Fix Buffalo Today
The Detroit Metroblog
Defend Youngstown
Outside Erie
Cool Cleveland
Brewed Fresh Daily
Buffalo Rising
Buffalo Pundit
I Will Shout Youngstown
In The Yo
girl in the D
Absolute Michigan
International Metropolis
And new projects like GLUE

I also hope there’s room for the people behind concepts that are not strictly blogs like

POP City
Detroit Yes
Model D

It’s not till July so pass the word around.

(The blogs listed have not all agreed to be represented– It’s just a list of some potential participants)
