Tonight was the #bkblogs event at The Bell House. It was like SXSW but only if it was constrained to the block of 7th Street between 3rd and 2nd Streets in Brooklyn. There was music. There were lobster rolls and shrimp rolls by Red Hook Lobster Pound. There were tech start-ups, bloggers, tumblrs, twitterers, blog-to-book authors and such. There were cupcakes by Robicellis.
Tonight, I met Bourgie Interrupted, @laurenthedark, Jean from Swee10.com Chermelle from Off Manhattan and Wendy Todd. I mentioned these five ladies because they are Black women in Tech that I am meeting for the first time. The Boy thinks I know everyone in Brooklyn who has a URL, so it was especially nice to met new people doing cool stuff. I love meeting “The Other Brown Girl” in the room, so feel free to come up to me at any event and say “hello”.
It was super sweet to see Chris from The Skint, Brian Fairbanks, Blondie and Brownie, STFU Parents, AmyBlogsChow, Emily Hanhan, Amber Marlow Blatt of HeyBrooklyn, Anita of Brooklyn By Bike, Eric from Garden Fork, Rob Blatt of IMDBoner, Melissa of ForkThis, Hagan of Wandering Foodie, Erik of Fancy Fast Food, Lilit of Save The Assistants, Clay of Midtown Lunch, Brenda of Chaos Theory, Only The Blog Knows Brooklyn, Brianna of Unemployed Brooklyn and anyone else I forgot to mention.
