So, you've always wanted to take your blogging up to the next level... You've wanted to meet lots of other bloggers like yourself... You'd like to be a part of the largest online activist/blogger/journalist conference...

This just might be your chance!

I am pleased to announce scholarships for Netroots Nation, the nation's preeminent and largest gathering of bloggers, citizen journalists, online activists, and traditional media. The conference dates are June 15-18/19. In Minneapolis.

Thank you, Mike, for your leadership in this area. It is so important for the LGBT community to connect with the progressive community and progressive issues. They are our primary support base in both politics and society. At last year's Netroots Nation, Dan Choi and GetEqual created a key media moment that was another milestone on the path to DADT repeal. None of this would have happened without your leadership, and thank you for all you have done for our community.

There's usually a rather large Bilerico contingent at Netroots. Last year we pretty much took over a whole bar each night as people came and went - fans, contributors, colleagues.

It's a great time. It's intellectually stimulating, emotionally satisfying, and the networking opportunities with other progressive bloggers and activists is amazing.

Highly recommended!

(And Mike's scholarship program usually helps a dozen or more LGBT bloggers attend to queer up the conference.)
