Black Web Friday – 3/9/12

Welcome to Black Web Friday; is the message starting to spread yet? I have to say that February was interesting because I saw a few more people across the web that were highlighting black social media people or bloggers and that was pretty neat. Of course, it was Black History month as well, and so far I haven’t found anyone who’s written about it in March except for me, but that doesn’t mean it’s not happening, so if you find another list anywhere be sure to drop me a line; if my name is on it let me know sooner! 🙂

Black Web Friday

Here we go, and today might as well also be called Ladies Day. I’m starting off with my buddy Vernessa Taylor, who writes Local Business Coach Online. She talks about business development, both online and offline, social media, affiliate marketing, blogging, and a whole lot more. She also created the neat covers for my book on management and my management CD set which you see there on the left (go ahead, look at it, click on it to learn more, and then think about buying; I dare you lol). She also does business coaching, and has her categories lined up pretty neatly in the header. You’ll learn a lot from this blog with a standard commenting system.

Next we have the blog eponymously named Marlee Ward, and she talks about business; being in business, making business decisions, business motivation, etc. She gives a lot of tips to people thinking about working for themselves and man, is this a blog I need to read every once in awhile for a pick-me-up. I loved her post on figuring out when you’ve made it; great stuff. She also does business coaching, and one of these days I just might have to look her up for that.

The next blog is LogAllot by Sonia Winland, and it’s also a blog about business and business tips. She also talks about blogs and blogging design, as well as travel; that’s somewhat different from the norm. She’s got great taste as well as she included me in on her blogs of the month series in February. You might think this is a bit of quid pro quo but she was already on the list to be highlighted.

Business is the theme today and that brings us to the last person being highlighted, Pamla Whorne. Her blog is also about business and business tips, as well as marketing, publicity, blogging and being online. She does consulting, speaking, and teaching, has courses, and is a published author. She considers herself a social media junkie and technology geek; aren’t we all? 🙂 This lady knows how to market; I definitely need to study her lessons better.

That’s it for this week; have a great and safe weekend.

  1. Wow Mitch, Vernessa sounds like a fantastic blogger, I’d be keen to get into more of her stuff as I definitely see the benefit of both the online and offline business development.

  2. Thank you Mitch for making my day! I really appreciate the mention and you know I thought about doing something like that and got busy as I was going through a job change for February. I would still like to see a big post about Black bloggers online as I know there are tons more.

    I found a few blog conferences like Blogging While Brown and BeBlogalicious, but they are nowhere close to my area. Either way it’s nice to see conferences out there that more diverse.

    1. No problem Sonia; glad to share the love. Same here as far as talking about the conference, as I’d love to go one of these years. And I’m not sure if you’ve seen other posts I’ve done on this blog but if you look through the Black Web Friday category and find the first one you’ll see links to some previous posts I’ve done on the topic, as well as other Black Web Fridays. 🙂

      1. No I didn’t know that, but I will go back through your archives. I would love to collaborate on a post and maybe get some quotes from other black bloggers on how they feel about blogging and where we are truly at.

      2. It’s not quite a crowd but go ahead and join in the process Sonia. I’m just looking to help create an equal playing field, which I talked about in the original post.

  3. Mitch, you are reading your loyal readers mind! The first blog, will be extremely useful for me, as I mention on your other blog, I am starting with coaching next week so more information and ideas can be very useful. I am quite happy that you have choose business related blogs.

  4. Nice to hear and find some of friends in your list. It’s all about business 🙂 I wish your blog to be listed some where as well.

  5. Hey Mitch,

    Serendipity at work: I retweeted your mention about this post earlier today, but had no idea I was featured! I really admire how loyal you are to the theme of raising awareness about African American bloggers out there, regardless of the niches they cover.

    Marlee Ward, I read her blog sometime back but not lately, so thanks for the reminder. I knew she writes good stuff so I tend to share it on Twitter on a regular basis even though I don’t visit as often as I should.

    Sonia and Pamla, hadn’t met them yet, so thanks for the introduction. I’ll check them out, follow on Twitter, and add to my Twitter Small Business List.

    As always, thanks for the shoutout and the encouragement.
