BlogCon 2010 Underway in Washington DC

Bloggers from all over the United States descended on Washington D.C. yesterday for the first BlogCon event. The FreedomWorks sponsored event may have attracted bloggers from all over the country, but these bloggers are all from the right side of the blogging spectrum.

The kickoff began around 2:oo PM yesterday as a few dozen of the early arrivals trudged their way to the Capitol for a meet and greet with the House Republican Communications Directors.

There were remarks by several people and an open discussion about the relationship and interaction between the bloggers and House Communications folks.

I must say, this was an open and very frank discussion of the issues and current state of communications between the House members and the right wing blogosphere.

It was a great dialog, followed by a bit of mingling and exchanging business cards, then we hit the Metro for the dash back to our Crystal City Hotel.

Registration began and we all received out credentials, a goodie bag with several books and assorted items.

We had a reception where Tabitha Hale, FreedomWorks Interactive Media Coordinator, introduced several speakers including including her boss, and FreedomWorks Top mover and shaker Matt Kibbe. Erick Erickson of RedState also had a few words before he had to dash off for a news appearance.

After the reception, the party moved to the Crystal City Sports Pub for the opening game of the NFL season and watched Minnesota drop their opener to the New Orleans Saints.

On tap for today are a number of workshops and sessions, which are very interesting, looking at the agenda for the day.

Tom White Says:

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
