Blogfest is Coming

All right, bloggers, prepare yourselves: the Fifth Annual Brooklyn Blogfest is going to happen on Tuesday, June 8th.

This yearly get-together of the borough's bloggers will kick off at 7 pm at the Brooklyn Lyceum, 227 Fourth Avenue at President Street in Park Slope.

I've been going to Blogfest for the last three years now and I've had a blast every time. You get a chance to meet the people behind the keyboards, exchange ideas, expand your horizons and guzzle alcoholic beverages.

This year's event will include a video tribute to Brooklyn's most visionary photo bloggers, special networking sessions for like-minded bloggers (i.e. Blogs of a Feather), the return of the ever-popular Shout-out when bloggers are invited to share their blogs with the world (moderated by yours truly), and a roof-raising after-party with ABSOLUT® VODKA cocktails, food and music. There will also be--dare I say it?--surprise special guests. There, I said it.

"The borough of Brooklyn has always been front and center in the world of blogging," says Louise Crawford, founder of the Brooklyn Blogfest and "Whether you live by a blog, blog to live, or live to blog, you'll want to come out on June 8."

Doors open at 6:30 pm and this event is free, yes, free. Now you have no excuse not to attend, so don't let me down.
