I’m SO excited for this weekend! This evening I leave for Washington DC – I’m taking Amtrak from Chicago to DC with my amiga Luvvie, so if you don’t already follow us on Twitter, now’s a great time! We will be documenting the fun of a road trip and photographing the scenic beauty of the journey. Definitely expect a blog post to come — this will be my first ever train ride of this length and I’m excited to see what train travel is all about!

So why will I be in DC? Because I’m on the closing panel at the Blogging While Brown conference, which is titled “Break Through Bloggers.” I’m SO excited and honored – and I’ll be sharing my views and experiences in blogging alongside Baratunde Thurston and Anil Dash – two men who have amazing careers and experience in the realm of public speaking.

While I’m in DC I do have some events to attend and LOTS of my fellow bloggers to meet. If you want to come out and meet some of your favorite bloggers, you need to be at Say Red DC – Cocktails and Conversations! Hosted by The Red Pump Project and the ladies of Blogalicious, it’s bound to be a fashionable evening of socializing, drinks and conversations. Click here to get your ticket – it’s only $20 and benefits an amazing cause. I hope to see you on Saturday night at the event!

Can't wait to get see your DC posts as I am sure that the trip and the presentation on Saturday were great. Will the Red Cocktail event also be featured?
