St. Louis blogger Adam Sharp films panelists (l-r) Dana Loesch, Jim Durbin and Michelle Moore at the Show-Me Institute‘s Blogosphere Event today in St. Louis, Missouri.

The Show-Me Institute is hosting a blogosphere event on Nov. 21 for established bloggers, as well as new and prospective bloggers. There was training, panel discussions, and a panel presentation from the the Motorhome Diaries folks.

From the website: As more cuts are made at mainstream news media outlets, there are fewer reporters keeping tabs on what local and state government officials are doing. Increasingly, bloggers have stepped up to break stories, or call attention to issues that are being ignored. The Show-Me Institute is hosting its first blogosphere event to help train and support both Missouri bloggers who are working to help keep government transparent, and citizens who want to learn how.

Presenters include Saint Louis’ most prominent bloggers and social media practitioners, Saint Louis media, and an editor of the award-winning TexasWatchDog.org.

The conference was held today at the Sheraton Hotel in Clayton, Missouri.
Complimentary breakfast and box lunch were provided.

The goal of the Show-Me Institute’s blogosphere event is to empower any person interested in advancing government transparency through factual reporting. Please feel free to forward this invitation to others who may be interested in attending.
