My philosophy, since moving to DC four years ago is: weekends are made for brunch. What better way to forget about your hellish work week than to go drown your sorrows in eggs benedict and bottomless mimosas?
This past weekend was no exception, however, this time, the brunch served a greater purpose, which was to talk about the art of blogging, and becoming a published author. Tyece, who runs the blog, Twenties Unscripted, put together an amazing event where she got two fabulous bloggers, and one sharp journalist, and let them tell attendees about their journeys in writing, reading, blogging, and more. The panel featured Alida Nugent, creator of the blog, The Frenemy, and author of the book Don’t Worry, It Gets Worse: One Twentysomething’s (Mostly Failed) Attempts at Adulthood, GG Renee Hill, creator of the blog, All The Many Layers, and author of of the book, The Beautiful Disruption: A Soul Story, and Lindsay Deustch, journalist for USA Today.
For a little over an hour, we sat and let them talk to us, and we talked back to them sharing our stories. Though I live tweeted a lot of their advice, I believe what they had was important enough to be talked about again.
