Black Web Friday – 4/27/12

It’s another week of Black Web Friday, and during the week I was reminded once more why I started this process to begin with. One of my friends wrote to tell me about another list of top 50 whatever online. At least this list had 2 people of color on it, but my friend wrote anyway to ask why there were only 2, and the woman’s answer was that these were the only 3 she’d ever talked to online.

Black Web Friday

Well we can’t have that now can we? After all, the internet is replete with people of color, supposedly one of the fastest growing demographics for creating websites and blogs in the nation… okay, that would be black people specifically, and I thought I’d best go back to that to be clear with my terminology. So let’s see who I can share with you this week.

The site Loop 21 is something a little bit different. It’s a site that has news and commentary like some other sites I’ve highlighted before, but it also has magazine-type articles that I find kind of interesting, and that’s what sets it apart from the others. It also partners with sites such as Huffington Post and the Daily Beast, both definitely not black sites, to show a bit of diversity in its coverage. Very entertaining site.

Okay, I’m not going to lie; I don’t do pilates. That doesn’t mean no one else does them, and even though it’s not my thing, I found the site Pilates For Fitness by Gina Jackson intriguing. She’s a certified Pilates trainer who looks like, well, she does Pilates, and her blog covers other health topics such as dieting, cleansing and yoga. It also has a very cool look and a standard commenting system; if you’re looking to get healthy and want more than learning about my new healthy eating ways, check it out because it deserves a lot more attention.

Are you looking to learn more about working a small business? If so you’ll want to check out Melinda Emerson’s blog and website Succeed As Your Own Boss. She has a lot of articles that pertain to running a small business and articles on how to make it easier to do business as well. She has a lot of bonafides including being a TV producer, and there’s a lot to learn here. And it’s a WordPress standard comment system; gotta love that.

Mavis Nong breaks the mold on Black Web Friday with her Attraction Marketing Online blog because she’s the first non-American, being from South Africa but living in England. I ended up deciding to include her here because she writes a lot of great stuff about, well, marketing online, and I felt that she deserved to be better known as well so she gets in. She adds talking about MLM to her list of ventures, though I’m not an MLM kind of guy, but I know some of you are so here’s a nice resource for you. One post in particular that I liked was when she talked about LinkedIn Marketing giving more of a tutorial for doing it right as opposed to when I talked about the reality of trying to market on LinkedIn. And for the second straight week, all the blogs I named here have the standard WordPress comment system; yay!

There you go, 4 sites to check out as we head into May; wow, it’s going to be May already! Enjoy the weekend and check these sites out.

    Wow! What a wonderful read! I really love this selection of great sites. Thanks

  • Nice selection of blogs again, Mitch. From all I have seen and commented only on Mavis blog, I will check the rest now, it seems that there is a lot of interesting information. Have a great weekend!

      • Thanks, Mitch but my weekend is turning into nightmare, my wife is missing and nobody know where is she, I checked in police station, checked hospitals and spoke with relatives, she simply disappear in thin air and honestly I don’t know what to do now.

      • There is a development on this topic and I am really mad about everything. She is back, but she have been kept by police as she have been on crime seen. Why I am mad? Well, I was in all 9 police stations in the area and nobody could tell me this or call me for 3 days.

    Thanks for sharing their blogs. And I would like you to know that I greatly respect people of color. Some of the kindest persons I’ve known are black and it never is bad to get to know somebody of different race.
