We traveled to North Park and stopped at the LOFT (ANN TAYLOR) to attend the Launch of North Texas Black Bloggers. We = Me (Desmond) + My Queen (Brittny). YES she stepped out with style and grace and worked the room with me. Mingling and shopping she expressed her excitement of understanding blogging in such a new light. While at the event we had the opportunity to meet a diverse group of bloggers while being surrounded by clothes and the photography ideas jumping from every direction. We met a great group of bloggers that individually have there own style. From business, fashion, music, hair, motivational, technology, to even WHERE is the VODKA :) (she was one of my favorites) bloggers. The room was bubbling with new faces and people from all types of backgrounds all excited to create.
What was this event about?
This event was the introduction to an organization that is designed to influence Inspiration, Education, and Motivation. The North Texas Black Bloggers Association is a community of driven bloggers and content creators seeking the inspiration, education and motivation needed to successfully navigate through the exciting arena of online curation and blogging. There goal is to provide educational resources, collaboration opportunities, and motivational tools so there members can be better bloggers and influencers. Through meetings, workshops, networking opportunities and meet ups they demonstrate that blogging is much more than working individually behind a computer.
Who are the Founders?
The North Texas Black Bloggers Association was founded by Danyel Buie and Jennifer Baker. Both bloggers have a heart as pure gold. Through out the event the worked the room insuring they touched everyone and encouraged even some that did not have a blog to start one. There passion to help others showed through there conversation. There humble spirits eradicated as they pulled the group together to explain briefly what NTXBB is all about.
I look forward to the next event and working with many of the bloggers in future endeavors. Great job to Danyel and Jennifer you guys did an excellent job and to me.. have struck gold! I love your vision and plan to support!
