Last Thursday Greenpointers and The Skint hosted a Brooklyn Blawg Brain Pick at The Diamond (43 Franklin St). Not only did I want to put faces to the geniuses behind my favorite Brooklyn blawgs, I wanted to talk shop, ask numbers, and find out how they run their businesses.

It was a great event, rolled through with like 20 heads and packed into the gondola, while Tim soaked everyone with the hose. Needless to say, it was a very professional evening filled with serious conversations. Crew

The following awesome blawgs showed up: Bushwick Daily, Brooklyn Spaces, The Skint, Park Slope Stoop, Brokelyn, I Love Greenpoint, Brooklyn Imbecile, Hyperallergic & Get Wakefield.

There was a lot of talk about BlankSlate, a company that does all the dirty work for local blogs, so you can focus on the fun part, blogging. They handle ads, an event calendar, etc. I have been onto them since Brownstoner and Brokelyn are on board, and now one of my favorite blogs Bushwick Daily, run by one of my favorite peoples Katarina Hybenova, has revealed a new Bushwick Daily website also with BlankSlate.

Take a look and let us know what you think!
