BlogCon, a Freedomworks-sponsored conference for conservative bloggers, is being held in Washington, DC, this weekend. It was scheduled to coincide with the 9/12 March on Sunday, which we’ll all be covering live.  I was honored to be one of the bloggers invited to attend, so here I am.

The conference started bright and early this morning at 8:30, with speakers like Dr. Melissa Clouthier (Melissa Tweets), Steve Kruiser, Jim Hoft, Mary Katherine Ham, and John Hawkins.
