Second Annual Black Blogger Month Launches May 1, 2012
Black Enterprise Magazine July/August 2018 Issue

It’s that time of year again. Spring is in the air (well, for most) and BlackEnterprise.com is ready to celebrate the efforts of digital thought leaders with its second annual Black Blogger Month. Kicking off tomorrow today, May 1, 2012, and continuing every weekday throughout the month of May, we’ll feature profiles and interviews with 20 of the best Black bloggers on the Web. From fashion and technology to relationships and politics to media and finance, every corner of the digital world is covered as these new wave entrepreneurs share their branding strategies, passions for blogging and the many ups and downs on their journey to success online.     

In addition to the blogger profiles, Black Blogger Month will include integrated video interviews with several of the individuals profiled, where they answer key questions about their brands in a pre-launch shoot that took place at Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter‘s newly renovated 40/40 Club New York. (6 W. 25th Street @ Broadway). This will also be the location of a special Tweet Up celebrating our 2012 Black Blogger Month honorees tomorrow tonight, May 1, 2012, from 7-9pm with one-hour open bar courtesy of Ciroc.

To mingle with Black Blogger Month’s digital tastemakers and BlackEnterprise.com editors, all you have to do is retweet this post @BlackEnterprise with the #BlackBloggerMonth hashtag and show the tweet at the door. Please note that space is limited so arrive early.

Be sure to check out a new digital thought leader as they’re revealed each day starting later today by logging on to BlackEnterprise.com/BlackBloggerMonth. In the meantime, watch below as some of the 2012 Black Blogger Month honorees speak on being part of this year’s package.
