The 2010 Blogging While Brown Conference will kickoff with a Blogging Day of Service 'Free Blogger Boot Camp' at the Martin Luther King, Jr Memorial Library in Washington, DC.
Blogging While Brown is committed to obliterating technical barriers to participation in one of the greatest technological revolutions in human history, content creation and distribution by ordinary individuals online. Class, race, geography, and income should not be barriers to full participation in the information revolution. Therefore, 2010 marks the first annual Blogging While Brown Day of Service. We're bringing back our wildly successful Beginning Bloggers Boot Camp, except this time, the Boot Camp is FREE and open to the public.
“It's our gift to our host community and a tangible manifestation of our goal to live in a world where everyone can blog,” said Gina McCauley the conference founder.
This year's Beginning Blogger Boot Camp will be taught by Gina McCauley. McCauley is also the creator of the What About Our Daughters and Michelle Obama Watch blogs. She is also one of the most sought after new digital media speakers.
This course is extremely hands on and could be one of the largest classes we've ever conducted. The session will be intensive and is designed to equip new bloggers with the technical requirements of blogging prior to the start of the conference.
The Boot Camp will kick off Friday, June 18, 2010 at 9 a.m. at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library located at 901 G St., N.W. in Washington, D.C. The library is located just steps away from the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and the Henley Park Hotel. Space is limited to the number of computer terminals. Please reserve your space today!
PLEASE NOTE: THIS BOOT CAMP IS FOR BRAND NEW BLOGGERS. IF YOU ARE AN EXPERIENCED BLOGGER & WOULD LIKE TO VOLUNTEER TO HELP WITH THE BOOT CAMP PLEASE CONTACT AMINAH AT AMINAH@BLOGGINGWHILEBROWN.COM.
