BlackEnterprise.com’s Black Blogger Month may only last until the end of May, but that doesn’t mean the celebration of digital entrepreneurship has to end (besides, BE’s only just begun featuring 20 of the Black blogosphere’s best voices for 2012). From June 1-2, the 5th annual Blogging While Brown conference hits Philadelphia, PA at the Chemical Heritage Foundation. Gathering together some of the most influential Black social media entrepreneurs and online activists, the conference provides a forum for aspiring and established bloggers to gain insight on the ever-evolving ways of the Web through a series of informative panels and networking.
The two-day conference features a host of experts and social media tastemakers. This year’s panelists include to Patrice Grell Yursik of Afrobella.com, Lamar Tyler of Black & Married with Kids, Toni Carey of Black Girls Run, Damon Young of Very Smart Brothas, Kathryn Finney of The Budget Fashionista, Slim Jackson of Single Black Male, Demetria L. Lucas, author of A Belle in Brooklyn and BlackEnterprise.com’s Senior Producer/Black Blogger Month Editor Anslem Samuel Rocque, among others.
Along with panel discussions, keynotes and networking opportunities, this two-day event also includes a Beginning Blogger Boot Camp and a Business of Blogging workshop and symposium. For more information and to register, log on to BloggingWhileBrown.com or follow @BWBConference on Twitter.
