‘Blogging While Brown’ and ‘Netroots Nation’ Have Consumed Me

Hope each of you are doing well!
As you may have noticed, Prune Juice Media hasn’t been updated in a few days. This was on purpose. I thought you might like to know some of what’s going on.
It’s that time of the year when I have to step away from my daily computer routine to attend conferences. By some crazy coincidence, the Blogging While Brown and Netroots Nation conferences for 2012 fell within a week of each other. So, I had to suck it up and make time to go.
I’m not complaining though! I love to travel for this stuff because it’s a chance to connect with other bloggers and readers and talk shop.
Blogging While Brown was on June 1-2 in Philadelphia. In a nutshell, it was a great opportunity to interact with other prominent bloggers of color in tech, beauty, fashion, lifestyle, and even politics. This was my third year attention BWB and it was the best one yet! We discussed everything from business issues in blogging, SEO, activism, and the move from being a blogger to author, etc.
Netroots Nation will be held from June 7-10 in Providence, RI. This time I’ll be with other liberal political bloggers — always a fun crowd. So, I’m preparing to leave you all once again, though briefly, to help build the PJM brand. I have never attended Netroots before and I’m excited. I always love meeting new people and talking about the website.
So, I thank you for your patience during this time of scarce updates. Just wanted to say that our loyal audience has not been forgotten. All of this travel and hard work is to bring you the best PJM possible.
Thanks for all the support!
