Blogfest Eve

The Third Annual Brooklyn Blogfest, a gathering of Brooklyn bloggers who write about their neighborhoods and anything else that matters to them, will be happening tomorrow.

The excitement is killing me!

If you're a blogger, an aspiring blogger, or you just love Brooklyn, get your butt down there and represent...or whatever you think is appropriate.

I would love to see more Bay Ridge bloggers there, especially since I walked all over the neighborhood Sunday putting up Blogfest posters.

I've been the only one from my hood going to the monthly blogades and I know there are more bloggers in the Ridge. So let me see your face at the place.
