Learn from some of the pioneers and thought-leaders in the Black blogosphere on our past, present, and future.

2. When did you begin blogging, and why?
3. What trends do you see with Black bloggers as technology becomes more ubiquitous?
4. What do you see as the future of Black blogging?
5. Are there any trends or topics you would like to see discussed in the future?
6. Black blogging seems to have taken off with the advent of Black celebrity gossip. How do you see this sort of relationship as it relates to other bloggers relationship with celebrities (like Perez Hilton)?
7. There are currently two blogging Awards for Black bloggers -- the Black Weblog Awards and the Black Web Awards. Do you see these events as being representative of the Black blogging community?
