Black Web Friday – 4/13/12
Posted by Mitch Mitchell on Apr 13, 2012
Now isn’t this interesting. We head into the 13th episode of Black Web Friday on Friday the 13th, and I’m out of town. As this posts, I’m sitting in what’s probably a really boring meeting in Washington D.C., hoping there’s at least something I’ll eat because, since I’ve driven down here, I will have my own drinks at the ready this year in case they mess that up. I might have to bring some of my own food as well; oh, the curse of being a picky eater!
Anyway, it should be a fun listing of folks today, but before I go any further let me just say that I hope some of you are sharing these lists in other places. Remember, I started this series because I got tired of people telling me, and others, that they had no idea there were any black bloggers around, or that they didn’t know any. I’ve highlighted at least 40 so far, with more to come; let’s spread the word.
T S Hombe writes a blog called Selling With Spirit, and the blog, and the website it’s connected to, talks about sales, period. Based on my series on real marketing it fits in with some of what I’m talking about and trying to learn at the same time. His blog is quite minimalistic and clean, with a traditional blog commenting system.
Angela Burgin Logan writes the blog Live and Learn, and it’s geared towards women’s health issues and other issues and events that women might like to talk about. It’s a very uniquely styled blog I must say, and I think it deserves a lot more love than Alexa seems to tell us it’s getting. I’ll admit that I wouldn’t get much out of an article on breast feeding, but some of you other ladies might. lol She’s also got a story to tell that some of you might find interesting and touching as well. It has a traditional blog commenting system also.
Carolyn Edgar‘s eponymously named blog (I hope after 13 weeks the word “eponymous” is now in your vocabulary lol) says you’re reading the “notes of a lawyer, writer and single mom”. What I see it as it a blog giving the opinions of a black woman on black issues, women’s issues, entertainment, fashion,… pretty much like any other personal blog but longer posts and with a definitely educated feel. I loved her recent post titled Interview With The Vapid about online trolls; just great stuff. And it’s another traditional blog commenting platform; I’m loving this!
Sometimes you just need to read something that finds a way of making you feel good. Sibyl Chavis does that with her blog Possibility of Today, which is a motivational blog with lots of beautifully written posts that make you think and make you feel good. She’s another smart writer; Harvard Law School, just like President Obama! lol She’s got a lot to offer on her blog and her either site, and if you’re looking for a boost, it’s a great place to go.
There you go, another fun week over and out. I hope you’re not too superstitious on this day; I’m not, as it’s one of the few things I’m not scared of. Hey, Wilt Chamberlain wore #13, and look how well he did. Take care, and enjoy your weekend. I also hope your taxes are done. 😉
