This past week, I’ve been west-coasting it in Los Angeles – attending the 2011 Blogging While Brown Conference. This experience has been nothing short of amazing! I was awarded the BlogHer – Blogging While Brown Scholarship on June 30th (aka DivasandDorks.com anniversary) – in which BlogHer provided my conference fee & hotel accommodations (for what was my first blogging conference EVER!). From the moment I arrived in LA – I knew that DivasandDorks.com business of blogging would never be the same.
The conference opened up with an array of social events & I met so many of my blogging friends (in my head). Many of the bloggers, I already follow on Twitter & felt like I knew them – and once we met IRL (in real life) it solidified that they are truly as awesome in real life as they are online.
