A group of bloggers (the “Blog Squad“) have organized to provide coverage of the National Association of Realtors (NAR) convention in San Francisco this October. According to Inman News, the ringleader of the group has obtained NAR permission for bloggers to attend the press briefings, but has been unsuccessful in obtaining actual press passes.
“Anyone who is a credentialed reporter can register as a member of the press with us,” said Lucien Salvant, an NAR spokesman. “You would have to be employed by a newspaper, magazine, online publication, TV station or radio station.”
Asked if his organization welcomed the bloggers, he said, “I really don’t have a comment. They can do what they want.”
How nice. Looks like SocketSite will be covering the convention after all…
