Blogalicious Weekend 2012 is less than 3 months away and the team is working hard to make it the best conference yet! Along the way, we decided that we needed some spokespersons, some serious blog lovers, some Chief Tweeters — some fabulous Blogalicious Brand Ambassadors!
We’ve selected 5 of these passionate enthusiasts, part of the Blogalicious community who strongly believe in increasing our multicultural community of digitally savvy influencers. Their purpose is simple: to spread the word in the online and offline space about our annual gathering.
Without further ado, here are the ladies that you can credit for lots of Blogalicious buzz, excitement and just plain knowingness about what’s happening in Vegas Sept. 28 through Sept. 30. They’ve each found their own way to the Blogalicious community and boast their own achievements, all while sharing the same digital passion that brings us all together.
