This year Black Bloggers Connect served as a sponsor for the Blogging While Brown conference. BBC member, William Jackson attended the conference and offers this great summary of the event:
Blogging While Brown is a powerful experience to the diverse world of Social Media/Technology and the integration of technology. The ability to write and share content is important in the developing world of digital content. Attending this conference are bloggers/writers like myself (William Jackson), Tiffany
Duhart (Jacksonville, Florida) and Lee Brown (Orange Park, Florida) looking forward to learning more about writing/blogging.
Conferences like Blogging While Brown demonstrate the significance of learning about new and evolving technologies that allow for creating, posting, modifying and sharing information. Blogging While Brown is the premier conference for people of color as a national and international conference. The opportunity to network professionally, share skill sets, online tools, and discuss the dynamics of male and female Bloggers of Color. Sharing solidarity of digital content directed at national and international audiences.
