This is only the second annual conference of the premier (well ok, only so far) conference just for African-American bloggers: Blogging While Brown. This year, it’s bigger, badder and blacker, ‘specially since I’m going. There are some major bloggers coming — including some blogs that represent some of the largest communities you can find online.

I’ll be speaking on 2 panels: The first is with Naoko McCracken of Automattic (producer of WordPress) on how to use the latest tech techniques to power blog with a focus on mobile blogging, plugins, iPhone apps, ways to connect WordPress with other social networking apps, and all that jazz. The second is:

Moderator: Carmen Dixon Rosenzweig,

Panelists: Megan Tady,

Pam Spaulding,
