At Brooklyn Blogfest 2009 we introduced Blogs-of-a-Feather, small group sessions for you to meet and mingle with like-minded bloggers.
It may well be the most POPULAR aspect of Blogfest and of course we'll be doing it again in 2011.
Notable bloggers from a variety of blog-genres will facilitate these small group sessions as a way for you to network and learn more about various categories of blogging and connect with other bloggers. This will happen at the end of the program and just prior to the after-party.
This year's Blogs of a Feather (BOAF) will be organized by Atiba Edwards (Visual Stenographers). Check your program for where at the THE BELL HOSUE these groups will be meeting. You will be instructed during the program as to where these groups will be meeting.
