BlogLive Atlanta: Round 2

As many of you already know, I attend BlogLive last weekend. It was a really fun event so I wanted to share my experience.

BlogLive was created by two fabulous women entrepreneurs, Tawana Necole (of Corporate Chics) and Akilah (of Execumama Enterprises); they also co-own Faceforward Atl, a company that produces events with a refreshing twist on networking (like BlogLive!).

So, the event is like live blogging. This is how it works: One of the hosts ask a question (blog post) to a panelist. The panelist answers (blog comment), and then the other panelists and attendees have an opportunity to give their thoughts and opinions as well (more blog comments). The attendees are given comment cards to hold up if they have a thought:

Like I said, it was a ton of fun, and I met a lot of my Tweeple and Facebook friends in real life like @Execumama , @CorporateChic, @ChocolateOrchid, @fabdogooder and @InspiredSista. I also met some new people like @NaturiBeauty @CurvyA and @JohnCloonan (<-- Go follow them on Twitter).

A lot of interesting topics were discussed to like the oil spill, reality TV, being dynamically inspired, failure and fear (@CurvyA said something I really loved: There are a million ways to do something right and one way to do something wrong, and that's to do nothing).
One of the most controversial topics was 'Should a woman be with a man that loves her more than she loves him' (And I just had to make that Question of the Week on For Colored Gurls).

Anyhoo, I highly recommend this event. Tawana and Akilah plan to take it on the road, so if it comes to your city or close by, you should definitely check it out!

Peace & Blessings,
