In any event, the moment we we got our pre-registered seats inside the Brooklyn Lyceum in Park Slope, we were overwhelmed by the talent that filled the room.
Sponsored by Absolut Brooklyn, Blogfest was hosts to a slew of prominent and proud Brooklyn bloggers.
The event was filled with excepts from top blogs, along clips of some really incredibly breathtaking photography blogs, and a panel of passionate Brooklynites. After a speech on the importance of Brooklyn blogging by Spike Lee, followed by an in-depth Q and A, writers, photographers, and everyone else began mingling like mad, exchanging information and taking notes. As you can imagine, SSNY got down with the best of them!
Meet the panel: Lead by Andrea Bernstein (WNYC journalist), panelists consisted of Heather Johnston (So Good TV), Atiba Edwards, Jake Dobkin (Gothamist), Faye Penn (Brokelyn), and Petra Symister (Bed Stuy Blog)
By the end of the evening, Mrs. Walker and I had enough time to get a bite to eat and be giddy about all the networking we accomplished. She was home in time to make hubby smile, and I arrived back home in Manhattan with a renewed love for Brooklyn.
Spike Lee, doin' the right thing by promoting and encouraging more Brooklyn bloggers.
