  1. 1. PRESS RELEASE For Immediate Release Contact: Xina Eiland, (703) 785-4358 xinaeiland@me.com Blogalicious Weekend Celebrates Diversity in Social Media Three-Day Action-Packed Conference Includes Hundreds of Influential Multicultural Women Bloggers and Speakers Washington, D.C. (September 28, 2010) In two weeks, Blogalicious Weekend (Blogalicious), the largest blogging conference celebrating diversity in social media, will kick off their second annual conference at the Ritz-Carlton, South Beach, which will take place October 8 –10, in Miami, Fla. Blogalicious is expected to have hundreds of online influencers to come together to share ideas and inspiration in the context of Web 2.0. Many of these women will include online influencers from the Latina community. A recent report published by AOL and Cheskin states that the number of Hispanics online grew faster than the growth of the total U.S. population. This year’s conference highlights the tremendous growth of Latinas online focusing in a meaningful way on the ethnic voices of Latinas in the blogosphere. "The Hispanic community is diverse,” said featured Blogalicious speaker Kety Esquivel, VP Digital Strategy, Ogilvy PR and Huffington Post blogger. “It includes people who don't have access to technology and those that are leading the latest innovations in technology. Recent studies have debunked the myth that the Latino community is not online. I am honored to be a part of this event with the Blogalicious team who understands that this is true and for their concerted effort to engage these important influencers." Founded by Mamalaw.com bloggers, Nadia Jones, Nyasha Smith and Stacey Ferguson, Blogalicious Weekend was launched after these three practicing attorneys, who between them have seven children, realized that there was a dearth in the blogosphere when it came to the multicultural voices of women bloggers. Nadia Jones, Nyasha Smith and Stacey Ferguson are also the founders of Mamalaw Media Group (MMG), a company devoted to raising the profiles of women of color online. “We believe this is an exciting opportunity to discuss the importance of blogging across ethnic communities,” says MMG. “The conference will once again ignite a sense of unity
