WELCOME TO BWB !
Since its launch in 2008, Blogging While Brown has grown to become the premier blogging conference dedicated to education, collaboration, and innovation among bloggers of color. The conference brings Black social media experts, speakers, and independent content creators together to educate, inspire, and expand their influence in social media and technology.
The following sessions provided a wealth of knowledge as my blog continues to grow and I work to find a healthy balance between blogging, working, and taking care of myself. I have so much that I want share with you as I travel, run, and work with local charity organizations. I’m currently working on some fab video blogs to share with you! Stay tuned :)
