As part of Ogilvy PR’s ongoing partnership with SixApart, we will be helping host a launch party for the new Vox blogging platform tonight at Bimbo’s 365 Club in San Francisco. The event should be a fun gathering of influential folks in the social media and blogging worlds – and a great excuse to network with fellow personal media enthusiasts. This event, along with the Business Blogging Seminar that I will be presenting at next month are both components of a partnership all of us at the Digital Influence team in Ogilvy PR are extremely excited about. Aside from being a Typepad user myself, I am a definite brand enthusiast of all the blogging tools from SixApart – including Movable Type and now, Vox – a wonderful new product that truly may be the "future of personal blogging." The official launch day was yesterday and there has been lots of conversation already about the platform and what people like about it.
If you happen to be in San Francisco, send me a quick email at rohitaustralia at gmail [dot] com and I will get you an invite to join the Vox launch party tonight. Also, check out the description of the Business Blogging Seminar and please spread the word to any interested colleagues or business contacts. This will be the first time that I am presenting publicly specifically on Social Media Optimization, so it should be interesting. For those who can’t make it, I will be sure to also share the presentation after the event.
