Black Web Friday – 4/13/12

Posted by on Apr 13, 2012
Listen with webreader

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!

Black Web Friday

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. 😉

Thanks you again for the excellent list of blogs, Mitch. I am not superstitious and I think 13th edition is excellent and will there will be a lot of traffic. I will just check and drop comments on the blogs. By the way I hope everything with the meeting will be better than expected.

Carl, the meeting was almost exactly what I expected but I had a very pleasant surprise just as I was leaving the hotel and that made everything work out just fine.

Possibility of Today is one of my favorite blogs! There are so many inspiring and motivational posts, I really like to browse them when I have some extra time after breakfast. It is such a good feeling when you feel energized in the morning!

Before you leave a reply; please see the comment policy if this is your first visit. This blog doesn't accept keyword names. I need a real first name or a legitimate nickname that you're known for. If your name has more than 3 words or the email address begins with "info" or "admin", the comment automatically goes to the spam filter; same if there are any links in the comment or if you don't have a gravatar. If your comment goes to spam for any of these reasons, or any other reason listed in this post, it may never show up on the blog (I do forgive the link issue if you've commented on the blog previously and I'll forgive the gravatar thing for first time visitors). If it goes there for any other reason (and I know some do), I'll pull it out as I don't intentionally moderate any comments on this blog.

One last thing; if your link is an affiliate link or goes back to a strange website or webpage I don't like, if I keep your comment I'll remove your link. That's why I have CommentLuv for blogs; if you have a legitimate business just leave that link & no sub-links. Trust me, it's best to read the comment policy if you don't get it, or never see your comments showing up here.
