2009 Blogging While Brown Conference

The annual Blogging While Brown Conference will be held in Chicago, Illinois on June 19-20, 2009.

This is the only international conference for bloggers of color, and its their 2nd annual event. Last year's conference was extremely successful.

Hosted at the high-tech University Center, the 2009 conference promises to bring the best of the 2008 conference with more opportunities to network and learn about the issues and concerns that face new media content creators.

Blogging While Brown was created in response to widespread dissatisfaction with the level of diversity in some of the largest blogging conferences.

One of the new features of the 2009 conference is the Beginning Blogger’s Boot Camp. This session is geared towards new bloggers or those interesting in starting a blog, providing training on the technical aspects of blogging.

More information about registration, housing, scheduling, sponsorships, and the conference location is available at They also have plenty of photos and video from last year, including the official conference video.

I will personally be there, and hope to see you there as well.

    Thanks for this information. I missed last year's conference and will try to attend this year. I'll also place a reference to this post on my blog to spread the word.
