Some of the nation's leading conservative (right-wing, Republican, and/or Tea Party supporters) bloggers and media personalities are converging in Charlotte this weekend for BlogCon CLT. Put on by FreedomWorks, a Washington, D.C.-based political organization that "fights for less government, lower taxes, and more freedom," this is the third BlogCon. The first was held in D.C. in 2010; the second was last year in Denver.

Dana Loesch is among the high-profile media personalities speaking at BlogCon CLT.

BlogCon CLT features two full days of speakers and training sessions this Friday and Saturday, April 20-21 at Hilton Charlotte Center City hotel. Notable scheduled speakers include Dana Loesch, contributing editor at, talk radio host, and CNN contributor; James O’Keefe, founder of Project Veritas who's most known for the undercover video that brought down ACORN; Stephen Moore, senior economics writer at The Wall Street Journal; Deneen Borelli, author of Blacklash: How Obama and the Left Are Driving Americans to the Government Plantation; Stephen Kruiser, comedian, writer, and host of Kruiser Control; and several others. They'll also pay tribute to Andrew Breitbart, who died unexpectedly last month at age 43.

Topics at the training and info sessions include: Data Visualization, Using YouTube Effectively, Slaying the Legacy Media, Pitching and Promoting your Work, Opposition Research: Digging up the Dirt, and more.
