Countdown to Blogfest

Hey, Brooklyn bloggers, it's almost time.

The Fourth Annual Brooklyn Blogfest is going to happen tomorrow night--that's Thursday to you--and you've got to be there.

This stellar event celebrating the very best this bloggy borough has to offer will be taking place at powerHouse Arena in DUMBO. Doors open at 7 pm and you have to be there or you'll hate yourself forever.

Well, no, you won't hate yourself. But I sure as hell will. And I'll cry and stomp my feet and eat junk food and put on a lot of weight and probably lose my job and wind up homeless and it'll be all your fault.

What kind of heartless bastard are you anyway?

All right, that's enough of this emotional crap. Here are some particulars:

WHY WE BLOG will be the theme of a panel discussion moderated by BCAT's Megan Donis and featuring Jake Dobkin of Gothamis, Anne Pope of Sustainable Flatbush; Tracy Collins of Freakin' Blog and Melissa Lopata of Hip Slope Mama.

This year Brooklyn Blogfest introduces BLOGS-OF-A-FEATHER, special small-group sessions led by notable bloggers in a wide variety of blog categories, where you can connect with other bloggers who share your interests.

The evening will also feature A VIDEO TRIBUTE TO BROOKLYN'S PHOTO BLOGGERS by Adiran Kinloch of Brit in Brooklyn, WHY WE BLOG VIDEO SPOTS by Blue Barn Pictures and then yours truly will MC the annual SHOUT-OUT: a chance to share your blog with the world!

Whether you live to blog, blog to live or you're just dying to see me on stage,you won't want to miss Brooklyn Blogfest 2009: the best Blogfest yet.
