Special Announcement!!

Blogalicious Site Badge

We can't believe the time is finally here! The ladies of MamaLaw are very excited to announce the launch of BLOGALICIOUS 2009, a conference designed specifically with women of color bloggers in mind!

Just For You
Your blog is an expression of you. It's an outlet to voice your feelings and opinions; a place to share your hopes and dreams. It's your very own medium used to recount your personal stories and to vent your frustrations. Part of what makes blogging so enjoyable is the ability to connect with other bloggers and to become friends with someone by virtue of this shared experience. Now, imagine a getaway - just for us women of color - that combines all of the things that you love about blogging with the added element of face-to-face interactions and the intimacy of "IRL" relationships. At BLOGALICIOUS 2009, you’ll laugh, you'll learn, you'll let your hair down. It will be just like blogging...only better.

The first of its kind, we anticipate this conference to be a huge success. Women bloggers of color have been asking for this type of conference for too long and MamaLaw decided to take action! We've been busy with the planning aspects of the event and have worked hard to plan what will be a fun-filled and informative weekend.

What You Can Expect
In its inaugural year, BLOGALICIOUS 2009 will provide women bloggers of color an amazing opportunity to come together to celebrate their diversity and their love for blogging. For 3 days, black, Latina, Caribbean, Asian-Pacific, and Native-American bloggers, among other nationalities, will enjoy a weekend of entertaining, informative discussions and extraordinary events, all experienced in the company of exceptional women.

We invite you to take a look at our agenda for the weekend, tell us what you'd like to see, and we hope that you will be a part of this unique opportunity designed just for you. Grab a badge for your blog and tell your friends. BLOGALICIOUS 2009 will be The Social Gathering for Women Bloggers of Color...you don't want to miss it!

I was just sent the link to this conference, and I am really excited about it. I live 5 hours from Atlanta, and I would love to attend this event. I am going to look on the website for some more information. I think that this is going to be amazing. I have not seen, as of yet, a blogging conference for women of color.

Take care,
Shynea
