When Femworking, LLC founder Kelley Sanabria and her event-planning colleague Nicole Dash scheduled an interview to talk with me about their October 26 Blogger and Small Business Conference, I imagined them sitting in sleek suits in with a window overlooking the Potomac.

by Jessica Haney January 24, 2012 Living

Be Blogalicious Weekend ’11 was so thought-provoking and so packed full of information, it’s taken me three months to write about the conference. Is that believable? It’s true.
