So, Brooklyn Blogfest 2009 is coming up, and I think I might actually go to this one. I've never been to any of these blog get-together shenanigans, but it might be high time I give it a try.
Anyone out there planning on going?

"Where better to take the pulse of this rapidly growing community of writers, thinkers and observers than the Brooklyn Blogfest?" ~ Sewell Chan, The New York Times
This year's event is dedicated to Robert Guskind (1958 - 2009), the founder and editor of Gowanus Lounge.
WHY WE BLOG is the theme of a panel discussion moderated by Brooklyn Independent Television's Megan Donis and featuring Jake Dobkin of Gothamist, Anne Pope of Sustainable Flatbush, Tracy Collins of Freakin' Blog, Bed Stuy Banana, and Melissa Lopata of Hip Slope Mama.
