WordCamp Updates, CLT and RDU

CLT WordCamp has declared their official date, Novemer 15th, and their keynote speaker, Mark Jaquith, a lead developer on WordPress, more here.

WordCamp RDU is scheduled for October 4, 2008, in Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina, which is exciting. According to the WordCamp Report, “this could be the first time there are two WordCamps in one state.”

I would of thought California locked down that superlative, but I will take it. We all know North Carolina has skills.

Editors Needed for Each Region

We are getting some good response and have a few lists of blog to go through to add to the directory. As we adjust the regions, we are in need of editors for each. Charlotte is the most covered so far, but even there we welcome help.

To become an editor, let us know your region, whether Charlotte, Raleigh, Peidmont, East or West NC, make sure you have a account, and send us your email, all through the contact page.

Thanks again for all the help so far.

Charlotte Page up and Running

We are kicking things off with a list of Charlotte blogs. Why? Well because that is where we are and that is what we know. Add to the list and help us kick off the NC Blog Directory with a good start.

But don’t worry, we want this thing to be extensive, state wide. If you are somewhere else in the state and would like to help us edit other lists, start a new lists, or simple add your blog, then please contact us or comment in the appropriate section.

Who Is This Doing This?

Welcome to the Blogging Directory for North Carolina. We hope to create a blogger fed directory of all blogs in the great state of NC. Add your blog to the directory by selecting your city or the state as a whole and comment with the apropriate details. Soemtimes it may take us a bit to get your info transferred to the listing, so please be patient.
