Chapter Thirteen: Making It Personal with Blogalicious’ Passion

“Being Blogalicious means to be genuinely passionate about your relationships, your work and your passions, rooted in social media, and to live that passion.” Stacey Ferguson a/k/a Justice Fergie, Blogalicious co-founder and chief curator

 

Something spectacular in the world of social media happened on October 9-11, 2009, in Atlanta, Georgia. It was the Blogalicious Weekend, the inaugural conference created to celebrate diversity in the blogosphere. The conference attracted women bloggers of color and other interested women and men.

The W.O.W. Factor

The 2009 conference theme was “Your WOW Factor” which referred to the unique qualities that distinguish each woman blogger in the social media market. In a post conference article I wrote for my Examiner.com column, I transformed WOW into an acronym:

Women Owning Who they are through the content, connections, communities, and commerce they create as they share experiences, insights, opinions, humor, creativity, expertise, and information. In short, they represent 21st century sisterhood.”

The conference kicked off with a Friday night of fun that included a welcome cocktail reception sponsored by “So In Style” by Barbie and Pine Sol. During the reception, I had an opportunity to meet and chat with the Migdalia Rivera of Ms. Latina blog, Nirasha Jaganath of Mommy Niri, Yakini Etheridge of The Prissy Mommy Chronicles blog, Renee Ross of Cutie Booty Cakes blog, Thien Kim of I’m Not the Nanny blog, and PR professional Xina Eiland. Chatting with these women helped me quickly recognize that Blogalicious was more than a conference. It was a movement comprised of a bold new breed of brilliant and beautifully different women bloggers.

The next two days of the conference were spent attending sessions that discussed social media basics, taking your blog to the next level, the possibilities and pitfalls of being on the Internet, the art of small business blogging, marketing to women of color, hot social media trends, secrets to a successful blog, and blog-life balance. I was able to teach an office yoga session for social media users. The feedback I received from several attendees including Boni Candelario of CoachMUp.com encouraged me to approach Maria Bailey, founder of MomTV, about hosting a yoga class on her online network, during the conference. She welcomed my proposal and later approved it for launch a month after the conference.

Throughout the conference, I used my flip video camera to conduct interviews with women bloggers and speakers including my digital diva shero, Cheryl Mayberry McKissack, founder of NiaOnline.com. When I returned home, I posted the videos on my YouTube channel and shared them with the Blogalicious community on Facebook and Twitter. I also launched a Blogalicious interview series on my Sisterhood the Blog radio show that featured many of the conference attendees and speakers. These efforts helped me give back to and truly embrace the Blogalicious community as my own.

Making It Personal

During the opening reception, I spent a lot of time sipping cocktails and chatting with Xina. We learned we were both born in Michigan and currently living in the D.C. metropolitan area. Throughout the conference, we reconnected with each other and other women like “WhimsiGal” founder of Whimsicard, LLC from the D.C. area. When we returned home, we used Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter to stay in touch. We also discussed our Blogalicious experiences on my Sisterhood the Blog radio show.

And then it happened. We reached out by telephone and agreed to meet face-to-face in D.C. Our first meeting occurred on a Sunday afternoon at the U Street Café in December 2009. Xina, “WhimsiGal,” and I sat at a table for a few hours discussing our lives, life goals, ways we could support each other, and ideas for a local Blogalicious meet up. That one conversation paved the way for our Blogalicious D.C. community building efforts.

Together, we were able to help Blogalicious co-founder Stacey Ferguson organize two D.C. meet ups in February and April 2010.  Xina played a major role in securing space and media coverage, promoting the events on Facebook and Twitter, identifying speakers and sponsors, developing the agenda, and obtaining in-kind donations for both events. I served as panel moderator for the April meet up.

In addition to supporting the Blogalicious D.C. community, we also made a commitment to support each other and our business goals as accountability partners and peer mentors. We launched our commitment with a breakfast meeting at Busboys and Poets, a popular D.C. hangout, in January 2010. Seated on comfy chairs with herbal tea and delicious breakfast items to keep us company, we shared our expertise. Xina became my PR coach. She convinced me to follow her instructions on branding for my books, artwork, yoga practice, speaking and sponsorship opportunities, and coaching services. I became her creativity coach and helped her develop a social media plan to support her intention to blog and learn more about social media tools.

Digital Sisterhood Network Founder Ananda Leeke Becomes A Blogalicious Weekend Conference Ambassador


Beblogalicious.com logo

Justices Ny & Fergie

Last week, Justice Fergie and Justice Ny of The Social Niche, the creators of BeBlogalicious.com,  selected Ananda Leeke, Digital Sisterhood Network founder, to serve as a 2011 Blogalicious Weekend Conference Ambassador!

What is BeBlogalicious.com?

BeBlogalicious.com is an online community of thousands of women. It celebrates diversity in social media and helps women:

  • To connect,
  • To learn about social media and other tech related issues,
  • To share information,
  • To create successful digital platforms for their creative endeavors, careers, and businesses,
  • To champion causes near and dear to their hearts, and
  • To impact the digital landscape.

What is the Blogalicious Weekend Conference all about?

The Blogalicious Weekend conference was established as a three-day celebration to honor  the diversity of women of all ethnicities in social media. During the 2009 and 2010 conferences, a fabulous group of savvy, influential, and talented women bloggers ignited a sense of unity within the multicultural blogging community as well as educated marketers on the importance of their demographic in today’s marketplace. They did all of this and more while networking, building relationships, and promoting inspiration and success for each other.

BeBlogalicious.com badge

The 2011 conference will be held on October 21-23 at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center.  The conference theme is “Making Masterful Connections.” See links below.

  • Click here to register for the conference.
  • Check out the Conference blog.
  • Make your hotel registration by clicking on this link.
  • Read more about the dynamic speakers and agenda.

What is Ananda’s Role as a Blogalicious Weekend Conference Ambassador?

As a Conference Ambassador, Ananda will use the Digital Sisterhood Network blog and Twitter page, #Digitalsisterhood Wednesday weekly Twitter party, and Digital Sisterhood Radio’s Stroke Diva Fabulous Show to promote the conference agenda, speakers, sponsors, registration process, weekly #BeUplifted Twitter Chats (Thursdays at 9:00 pm), movie, local meet ups, and alumni.

Check out a video below that expresses Ananda’s enthusiasm for Blogalicious (it includes Xina Eiland; skip to the last minute of the video). It was created by Lamar Tyler of Tyler New Media during the Blogalicious DC Meet Up in February 2010.

Why is Ananda excited about the Blogalicious Weekend Conference?

The Blogalicious Community personifies the essence of digital sisterhood. Ananda discovered this amazing community of women and a few good men two years ago while attending the Blogalicious 2009 opening night reception in Atlanta.  Her first digital sisterhood moment happened while sipping cocktails and recording a video interview with Xina Eiland.  During the interview, they learned they were both born in Michigan and currently reside in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.  Throughout the conference, they reconnected with each other and other women like“WhimsiGal,” founder of Whimsicard, LLC from the DC area.  When they returned home, they used social media tools like Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn to stay in touch. They also discussed their Blogalicious experiences on Ananda’s TalkShow.com program called Sisterhood the Blog Radio.

And then it happened. They reached out by telephone and agreed to meet in person. Their first meeting occurred on a Sunday afternoon at the U Street Café in DC.  Xina, “WhimsiGal,” and Ananda sat at a table for a few hours discussing their lives, 2010 goals, ways they could support each other,  and ideas for a local Blogalicious meet up.  That one conversation paved the way for their Blogalicious DC community building efforts.

Together, they were able to help Blogalicious founders organize two meet ups in February and April for DC area women.  Xina played a major role in securing space and media coverage, promoting the events on Facebook and Twitter, identifying speakers and sponsors, developing the agenda, and obtaining in-kind donations for both events.  Ananda served as panel moderator for the April meet up.

Xina & Ananda at Blogalicious 2010

In addition to supporting the Blogalicious DC community, Ananda and Xina also made a professional commitment to support each other and their 2010 business goals.  They launched their commitment with a face-to-face breakfast meeting at Busboys and Poets, a popular DC hangout,  on January 2.  Seated on comfy chairs with herbal tea and delicious breakfast items to keep them company, they shared their  expertise.  Xina became Ananda’s public relations coach and convinced her to follow her instructions on how to better package herself as a speaker, author of two books, artist, yoga teacher, and creativity coach.  Ananda became Xina’s creativity coach and helped her develop a social media plan to support her intention to blog and learn more about social media tools.  Since then, they have met monthly to assess their progress and to seek feedback on their endeavors.  They also attended several DC social media meet ups, hung out at the Red Pump Project and Blogalicious’ Say RED: Cocktails and Conversations event, and live blogged with the Blogalicious DC B-Link members during President Obama’s education reform speech at the National Urban League’s Centennial Conference.  See video of Xina at the National Urban League below. They also attended Blogalicious 2010 and co-moderated an open-mic luncheon sponsored by McDonald’s.

One of the Greatest Blogalicious Blessings

One of the greatest Blogalicious blessings Xina and Ananda received was their peer mentoring connection that encourages them to step up their “A”  game and pursue new opportunities.  Through their peer mentoring, they share information, insights, and introductions to people in their network that can support their efforts.  They also laugh, learn, and listen to each other when they achieve and struggle.  Their Blogalicious bond has created a digital sisterhood that exists IRL — in real time!

Flashback to Blogalicious 2010 – Reflecting on Open-Mic Luncheon Sponsored by McDonald’s

Blogalicious 2010 logo

The 2010 open mic luncheon featured a soulful discussion about the power of digital sisterhood.  Everyone listened to stories told by women who were Blogalicious newbies and alumni.  These amazing women opened their hearts and spoke with such passion, clarity, candor, and humor.  It was a beautiful experience filled with wisdom, laughter, lessons learned, and a plethora of blogging experiences that revealed how women discovered their authentic selves online and offline.  Check out the photos taken by NYCityMama Carol Cain below.   Carol is the official Blogalicious photographer. She did an amazing job documenting Blogalicious 2009 and 2010!

 

What Will You Receive When You Attend the 2011 Blogalicious Weekend Conference on October 21-23?

BeBlogalicious.com conference badge

Digital sisterhood is one of the many gifts you will receive when you attend the Blogalicious Weekend Conference.  It’s contagious. Some say it’s magical.  And it happens without you even knowing it.  That’s the beauty of Blogalicious.  Through the celebration of Blogalicious’ diversity, women own who they are through the content, connections, communities, and commerce they create as they share experiences, insights, opinions, humor, creativity, expertise, and information.  The Blogalicious digital sisterhood lays the foundation for building local digital sisterhood communities.

Watch the trailer video for the Be Blogalicious, the Movie created by Ronnie and Lamar Tyler, founders of Tyler New Media, to learn why Blogalicious is one of the best investments you can make this year!

Twitter Highlights from 12/29 Tweetchat on Inspiring and Informative Digital Sisters


PR Professional Xina Eiland inspired Ananda to step her game in 2010. They met at Blogalicious 2009. Xina became Ananda's PR Coach.

I moderated an amazing Tweetchat about inspiring and informative digital sisters on December 29.  This Tweetchat gave women an opportunity to offer and receive praise for the many ways they inspired and informed each other in 2010.  I shared how Xina Eiland inspired me to step up my online presence.  We met during Blogalicious 2009 and became digital sisters during 2010.  Xina currently  serves as my PR coach.  So she keeps me informed too!

SavvyPreneur Deidre Mason, a digital sister lawyer, tweeted about inspiring lawyerpreneurs.  What  a great  word – lawyerpreneurs! Soul Power Coach founder Adrienne Fikes saluted Core Connection Lifestyle founder Takeyah Young for her  healthy cooking classes and rosemary infused cornbread.  To learn more about the Tweetchat, see the Twitterstream below.
