Express Weekend, Blogging While Brown in Chicago!

What a busy weekend! I just returned from Chicago after attending the 2nd annual Blogging while Brown conference in downtown Chicago. Thanks to AT&T, I was awarded a scholarship to attend the conference with one of my dear friends from college, who is the AMAZING writer of the blogspot BlankBareClean.

The conference was planned to bring people of color together, who shared one common interest, BLOGGING! Yes, bloggers also have conferences too...About 50 individuals packed a conference room, bringing along their laptops and sons & daugthers (their blogs) to share & gain the wealth of knowledge. Amongst the discussion panelist were Hajj E. Flemings, founder of Brand Camp University, Milt Haynes, founder of Blacks Gone Geek, Angel Laws, creator & editor on popular on-line entertainment blog and Cheryl Contee, partner and co-founder of a social media firm, just to name a few.

Overall, I had a wonderful weekend in Chicago, while enjoying the sunshine, reuniting with my college friends "the crew", networking, gaining knowledge, and celebrating blogging with other inspiring and talented bloggers.
