Conference Day: 
Day 1
Conference: 
Political Bloggers, like any bloggers, have a tremendous amount of freedom...to write about what they want, to be as partisan as they want, to shed the objectivity that traditional reporters have (or some would say that they must pretend they have) and to pursue the art of persuasion. Not all political bloggers get taken seriously, however, and while there is that awesome freedom, political bloggers who want to be taken seriously also have an awesome responsibility in this current era of participatory media.

The panel before this one will be a political opinion writing workshop, but this panel will focus more on the aftermath of publishing your writing...how to deal with the ensuing conversations professionally, how to get your work out there and considered reputable and serious...no matter how partisan you might be. Join Morra Aarons-Mele, Shark Fu, Mona Gable and Fausta who are each taking names, and being taken seriously.
