While brunching & schmoozing is fun, some of the most important raisons d'etre for BWB are:
- help the media & press realize there are plenty of high-quality blogs
- provide a resource for the media seeking experts, stories & quotes to help the blogosphere with issues such as protecting legit bloggers from plagiarizing poachers (who know who they are!)
