Brooklyn Blogfest 2009 on May 7th, 2009!

By Melissa Lopata

I am so excited to be participating in the Brooklyn Blogfest this year as a panelist! I will be talking about what inspired me to create my blog, Hip Slope Mama, and what it is like to be a parent blogger. There will be a multitude of really interesting Brooklyn bloggers at this phenomenal event. I will also be co-hosting one of the special small break-out groups at Brooklyn Blogfest called "Blogs of a Feather". Me and my co-host of Blogs of a Feather in the "Parenting Blogs" category, Karen Connell, the founder of A Child Grows In Brooklyn (a wonderful resource to Brooklyn parents), will be available to answer any questions about parent blogging. I look forward to seeing you all there! Here is some more information about the event:
