‘Haitians Who Blog’ Host Pop Up in West Palm Beach.

‘Haitians Who Blog’ Host Pop Up in West Palm Beach.

Content creators from around the nation gathered at The Bombshell Boutique in West Palm Beach on Feb. 25. The common thread shared by these creatives was their love and admiration for their Haitian heritage and the fact that they follow Haitians Who Blog on Instagram. Shirley Dorsainvil, founder of Haitians Who Blog, describes the organization as an “insta-community” created with the purpose to “unite, expose and empower Haitian bloggers throughout the world.” Dorsainvil said events like this are necessary because they showcase an underrepresented category of voices in black media. “It’s very important to showcase Haitians.” Dorsainvil said. “There is a lack of representation and I just want to bring that [into the city].”

Lifestyle Blogger Melissa Lucien said events like this are necessary for content creators to attend because of the networking opportunities. “The world is made of connections. It’s all about who you know, meeting new people and growing your business and [yourself] as an individual.”

This event was a pilot meet-up for Dorsainvil to gauge the popularity of such a gathering. “Just to see this much of a [turnout] is so important because it shows that what I’m doing isn’t being just left behind in the mind, it’s actually being brought forward.” Dorsainvil said. Ultimately, she hopes that this community meet-up will grow into a full-fledged conference.
