Blogging on the Radio
By webmink on Sep 03, 2005
If you're in the UK, you may be interested in listening to national Radio 4 at 4pm on Tuesday where the Shop Talk programme will be exploring "Business Blogging" (the programme will also be available online from Wednesday, for about a week). I had the pleasure to appear on the programme, which was recorded last Tuesday, along with the glitterati of the UK blogging scene - Adriana Cronin-Lukas, a UK blogging consultant, Heather Platts who runs soap manuafacturer Eieflud and has recently started a blog, analyst Azeem Azhar and James Cherkoff, another blogging consultant. There was also a recorded interview with online tailor Thomas Mahon.
As Adriana points out, the smooth but strongly directive approach taken by the very professional presenter, Heather Payton, meant that there was little room to really explore the UK blogging scene as a phenomenon. In particular and to my regret I didn't even get to plug the UK blogging conference, 'Our Social World', which is happening on Friday in Cambridge and will likely be an excellent venue for the discussion Radio 4 missed. I'll be there, maybe you will be too?
Update: Listen to the programme if you dare! (link likely to rot away on Sept 13)
