Welcome to another week of Black Web Friday. Remember, if you’re so inclined you can go to Category and find this as one of the options to look back at the previous weeks, of which there are 3 at this point. No long lead-in today, so we’re just going to get into it; enjoy!
The first site I want to highlight today is called Black America Web, which is an entertainment website that was initially created to highlight the Tom Joyner radio program, but has grown way beyond that. Though it mainly talks about entertainment there’s are news and opinion sections on what’s going on as it pertains to black people. There’s also a link to the Tom Joyner Foundation, which collects money to help send college bound kids to traditionally black colleges and universities; I can’t tell you how many millions they’ve raised and how many kids they’ve sent to college, but it’s a good thing.
Next we have The Hustler’s Notebook, the website and blog of JK Allen, who’s a favorite of a lot of bloggers. He writes a lot about business and marketing and he recently wrote a book titled Driven To Learn, Learning To Win. He’s a very entertaining and smart guy and of course talks a lot about hustling, which in this case means working hard to succeed. And you can easily comment on his blog; you know I love that.
You can also easily comment on this next blog, Adria Richards But You’re A Girl. I like her site because it’s very conversational and personal, offering consulting services for technical issues, and her blog offers both technical tips and commentary but every once in awhile she talks about more personal things and, well, that’s what I do on this blog. Recently she talked about applying for a job at Google, and I have to say she looks good in the shirt. 😉
Because I didn’t have a real introduction, and because it’s Black History Month, I decided to add a fourth blog to the mix and explain my reasoning. I also think it’s the first Blogspot blog I’ve highlighted here, and y’all know I don’t like these blogs, but this guy’s done very well with it. His name is Wayne Hicks and his blog is called Electronic Village. He highlights issues that are of interest socially and politically to black people, and I originally discovered his blog many years ago when he used to publish a once a month listing of the top ranked blogs on Technorati, based when one could easily check such things. As it happened, around the time they changed is around the same time I started making the list; those weasels! lol Anyway, though he talks about issues pertaining to black people, he doesn’t only concentrate on black people, as he’s talked a lot over the past year about the tasering of people by the policy, many of whom don’t survive, including this guy whose family has filed a lawsuit against them because he didn’t survive. This is definitely a blog worth visiting.
That’s it for this week. Please visit these blogs and if you get a chance, let them know where you heard of them; it might give them a bit of a smile.
