Happy Tuesday! Happy Summer! Happy Belated Father’s Day!
Today I am writing a very short post about the 2009 Blogging While Brown (BWB) Conference that I attended on June 19 and 20 in Chicago. It was a fabulous experience! Wonderful people ! Fantastic information! And so much inspiration! I am glad I went to both the 2008 and 2009 conferences. I will post a longer BWB update later in the week. I’ll also post about my Chicago art adventures. In the meantime, I thought you might like to watch videos that feature BWB conference sessions. They were taped by NextGenWeb, a BWB conference sponsor. Click here to watch the 5 videos: http://www.nextgenweb.org/news-and-blog-clips/nextgenweb-blogging-while-brown.

FYI – I am planning to host a special episode of BAP Living Radio on July 5th that discusses lessons learned from the 2009 BWB conference. Stay tuned for more details and the list of guest panelists.
Peace and Creativity,
Ananda, thanks for the link. I wish we could have had time to chat. Put me on your schedule for next year’s conference. Take Care!
Thanks Shawn for all you did to make the event a success! I will definitely make time to hang out more with you and the rest of the BWB crew in 2010.
Hi Ananda! I’m glad you had a blast. Can’t wait to learn more. Thanks for being our eyes and ears.
