EDITOR’S NOTE: This contest is now closed. Congratulations to Rose’s Daughter AND Jewelry Rockstar, each who won full conference passes to Blogalicious 2010, courtesy of the ladies of Mama Law, who, because of the tremendous response, graciously granted TWO passes to MyBrownBaby. They were chosen by my personal Random.org Mari and Lila, who, when asked to choose one number each between the numbers 1 and 27,  chose the numbers 5 and 15. 

MyBrownBaby's got the hook up!

The lovely ladies of Mama Law, the fab group behind Blogalicious Weekend 2010, are headed to the beaches of Miami next weekend for their second annual celebration of people of color in social media, and they've graciously given MyBrownBaby a full conference pass to give away to one lucky reader.

Yup you read that right: One lucky reader will get an all-access pass (retail value: $265) to hang out and network with some of the savviest, influential, talented women bloggers on the web, plus educate marketers on the importance of our demographic in the marketplace. They've got a killer line-up of symposiums and keynotes, including panels and talks from James Andrews, aka @keyinfluencer, National Urban League president Marc Morial, my bloggy buddies Christie Crowder of The Chatterbox and Lorraine Robertson of AskWifeyAwesomely Luuvie, (who is all kinds of awesome!) Carrie Ferguson-Weir of Tiki Tiki Blog (one of my absolute must-reads), and Melanie Edwards of Modern Mami. And AND! Kindred the Family Soul is performing!

  1. I love reading blogs of color because each of us has such a unique experience. Not one person lives the same life although our skin color may be the same. Blogs give me a chance to connect with people's experience. To share in similarities, explore differences — laugh, cry, shake my head and follow it up with several 'mmmhmmm's'. Yup.. I love me some blogs of color! Lol.

  2. Helloooooo, please random generator Gods, pick moi! I adore reading blogs of color because I get to tap into the often-overshadowed resources that are held in diverse voices worldwide. Typically, the "standard" is called upon to be the "experts" in business and personal matters. That's all well and good, but we aren't all "the standard", hence the need (and joy) of getting down to the details with my various hues of bloggers. Dude, I'll already be in Miami that weekend, but my sponsorship fell through (boo!), hence the lack of Blogalicious tix. *Fingers crossed*

    I love reading blogs of color because it's great to read about experiences that I can truly relate to!


  4. I love reading blogs of color because I enjoy getting to know and connecting with the authors! Hope the random generators are good to me this time 🙂

  5. I reading blogs of color, because who better to speak for us and about us, then us.

    I am soooo ready to win this!! LOL

    I love reading blogs of color because it gives us a voice and an outlet. We can now ALL be Essence. ALL be Jet. ALL be Ebony. ALL show our talents, our gifts, share our frustrations and happinesses, network, and show each other love on a personal level! It draws us closer as a people and peeks our interest in issues and topics we may have otherwise been blind to.

    It rocks so hardcore to use blogging as a way to unify and meet new people, and dig what they say before they even speak a word to you! LOL

  8. Okay Yippee! I 've been working on getting a sponsor, and I've got some sponsorship so far, so a free tix would help immensely. I love reading blogs of color because they address issues that are specifically important to me and my family.

    Blogs of Color for me are no different than any other blogs out there — they provide a fresh and unique and many times funny perspective on things (culture/music/celebrity) that regular news media just can't or opts not to.

  14. I love reading blogs of color because I love to learn from others. Since college I have been intrigued by all things involving cultural socialization and how gender interacts and affects all that. I have been blogging for the past year so I'm also interested in learning how to increase my readership and learning how to make my blog more attractive to those who don't know me. There's so much real talk on these blogs that I feel like I'm just sitting in one big, intelligent discussion group. And I'm such a nerd that such an event thrills me!
