FOLLOW OUR 7-YEAR EVOLUTION THROUGH VIDEO
We've been planning conferences for 7 years. Watch our journey over the past seven conferences in Atlanta, Chicago, Washington, DC, Philadelphia, Austin (Spring Summit), and New York City.
MORE THAN A CONFERENCE
Blogging While Brown is more than a conference, it is a community - an incubator of creativity, collaboration and sustainability for emerging leaders in digital media and social change. We've been around since 2007 and our evolution has mirrored the explosion of social media's impact in our daily lives.
We're best known for the annual Blogging While Brown conference. Our 7th annual event will be in New York City, June 27-28, 2014. We'll be in the heart of Harlem which is fitting because much like the Black creatives and community builders before us, Blogging While Brown attendees are leaders in the digital creative renaissance of our time. Their passions are diverse and their online audiences are passionate and engaged.
BUSINESS OF BLOGGING PRE-CONFERENCE
Our conference starts off with a Business of Blogging Pre-Conference session. Many bloggers want to build media empires. We've solved the problem of choosing between attending a monetization session or important sessions on activism or technical mastery. The Business of Blogging is the only conference programming in the morning and afternoon on Friday. The pre-conference is much smaller than the conference so attendees have an opportunity to network and ask probing questions and problem solve together. We invite key decision-makers from brands, agencies and other organizations that have resources to take your blogging empire-building to the next level.
CONFERENCE GENERAL SESSIONS, BREAKOUTS, AND NETWORKING
Following the Business of Blogging, we immediately move into the General Sessions of the 7th Annual Conference on late Friday afternoon and continue on all day on Saturday. We hold an opening and a closing party and provide breakfast and lunch on both days.
While Blogging While Brown is blogger-centered, over the years, our sponsors have enhanced the conference experience by providing subject matter experts and speakers, networking opportunities, entertainment and an all-around good time. An investment in Blogging While Brown is a smart, efficient way to promote your product, good, service or organization. In return, our attendees create millions of Twitter impressions using the official conference hashtags and produce thousands of pieces of social media content.

Black bloggers from around the country will be gathering in New York City for the 7th annual Blogging While Brown Conference.
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. Along with panel discussions, keynotes, and networking opportunities this 2 day event also includes blogger training workshops.
“Blogging While Brown is one of the greatest gatherings of Black intergenerational and interdisciplinary genius on the planet. These bloggers and social media strategists combined reach over 40+ million unique visitors every month. It’s a joy every year to see these creative, technologically savvy people get together.”
