The Banana 2 Conference will be an event spotlighting the efforts of Asian American and Pacific Islander bloggers. According to the Banana 2 website:
"BANANA 2 is a follow-up to the inaugural convening in Nov. 2009 co-hosted by Lac Su, author of I Love Yous Are For White People (HarperCollins, 2009) and Steve Nguyen, a television/film producer and head of the ChannelAPA.com's Los Angeles division, who enlisted the help of a small group of bloggers and community activists to produce an event highlighting and amplifying the online voices of Asian Americans.
The conference will provide an opportunity for bloggers and their readers to build a stronger community by beginning conversations and building relationships beyond the conference. Conference panels will include topics on using blogs and social media to create meaningful social change, working with businesses and corporations and defining the role of Asian American bloggers."
I'm definitely flattered to have been asked to participate in this great event. I'll actually be taking part in a panel that day specifically devoted to Asian American bloggers who blog about a specific topic--my blog topic being, of course, Filipino food. I'm definitely looking very forward to sharing my thoughts about my blog and about Filipino food.
Again, Banana 2 will be taking place this Saturday February 26th, from 8am to 6pm at CBS Studios in Los Angeles. Conference admission is $20 per person, and you can register online at http://www.banana-2.com/register/.
