bloggers wanted wants you! We have a daily PortlandNow blog that covers as many of the corners of the creative economy in Portland as we can get our fingers into, but we know we're missing a lot. We want to open up the blog to the creative community and are hoping that you would consider becoming a contributor. We will be having a meeting at Space Gallery on Wednesday, June 30 from 5:30 to 7:30 to talk about how we are using LiveWorkPortland to increase the visibility of the creative economy here, and what we could be doing better. Our goal is both to make Portlanders more aware of what's going on in their own communities and to attract more talent to Portland from other creative metros. We are looking for bloggers and photo bloggers who want to keep us informed about interesting events, intriguing people, great food, unique products, cutting edge technology, mind bending art, unseen places and fleeting moments. Anything, in short, that you think your fellow creatives would want to know about and pass along. We are also looking to build reciprocal links with your blogs or projects and to trade links and build relationships with design, photo, food, music (etc.) blogs based in other places. We hope to see you there.

Panelists: Creative Portland's Andy Graham, Anthony Kosner, and Emily Straubel
Where: SPACE Gallery
When: Wednesday, June 30th, 5:30PM
Why: To explore collaboration between the's PortlandNow blog and local bloggers, photographers, videographers, audiographers, and other sources of interesting content.
