It's Blogalicious 2009

Blogalicious Site Badge

Okay, sometimes do you wonder if you've been sleeping on the job because you're the last one to hear about the next big thing? That's how I feel, seeing as how I just now found out about, Blogalicious 2009. It's a conference for women bloggers of color by women bloggers of color. From the blogalicious website:

" For three days, black, white, Latina, Caribbean, Asian-Pacific, and Native-American bloggers, among other nationalities, will enjoy a weekend of entertaining discussions and extraordinary events, all experienced in the company of exceptional women. "

Created by the women of MamaLaw, the conference is being held in Atlanta, October 9-11, 2009 and looks to be very well organized, especially for a first-year conference. Sponsors include big-name companies like Huggies and Chevrolet, and the speakers run the gamut, ethnically and professionally. But best of all, knowing their audience, they're even providing child care. Registration is over at the end of the week, on September 25th, so if you want to go, start making your plans.

Anybody out there already planning on attending? Let me know.

Peace!
