Me with my buddy blogger Tom Pryor of the amazing, Wonder-Years-Meets-A-Bronx-Tale blog Yorkville: Stoops to Nuts
On May 7 I ventured out to DUMBO, not to eat a piping hot pizza pie from Grimaldi's, nor to get schooled on the use of quinoa in visual art from a resident eepstair (European hipster), but to celebrate writing my blog with other bloggers from Brooklyn. It was the 2009 Brooklyn Blog Fest, and I had a front row seat.
That was pretty much all I had. I participated in a small talking circle, but mainly just listened and learned. Most attendants were treated to some creative filmwork by BlueBarn Pictures, showcasing the photography of local blogging artists, the diversity of the blogs that come from the borough, and celebrating the memory of a contributor who had passed away.
Then Juno interviewed a panel of bloggers.
The raven-haired beauty on the end is Melissa Lopata, editor of Hip Slope Mama, the parenting blog to which I contribute.
There was a pretty good turn out, thanks to the work of Eleanor Traubman (of Creative Times), as the seats of PowerHouse Books filled quickly.
