“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

Since it was founded in 2006, the Brooklyn Blogfest has established itself as the nexus of creativity, talent, and insight among the blogosphere’s brightest lights. This year will be no different as Blogfest presents keynote speaker, Jeff Jarvis, author of What Would Google Do? Jarvis blogs about media and news at Buzzmachine and is director of the interactive journalism program and the new business models for news project at CUNY’s Graduate School of Journalism.

Jarvis’ must-see presentation, Will Blog for Food (or You Can Make Money Doing This!), will focus on new business models for bloggers!

Blogfest is for bloggers, social networkers, journalists and entrepreneurs. “Whether you live by a blog, blog to live, live to blog (or are thinking of starting a blog) you’ll want to join us on May 12th.

Also on tap: a video tribute to Brooklyn’s most visionary photo bloggers (by Adrian Kinloch of Brit in Brooklyn), Blogs Aloud (directed by Elizabeth Palmer of Midnight Cowgirls); 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, and a roof-raising after-party with a cash bar, food and music!

See you on May 12th at 7:30 PM (doors open at 7PM). Order your $15 tickets NOW HERE.

  4. The only problem I have with this article is “before Park Slope became Park Slope”. It’s little statements like that, that makes older residents dislike the newer ones. There’s an attitude that Park Slope was a destitute, tenement filled urban, slum. Before the good WHITE Manhattanites and Mid Westerners came with their trust-funds in hand and saved the dilapidated area. It’s insulting!
