Thank you to Latimer Williams who bestowed upon me my very first Thinking Blogger award. I appreciate the nomination especially from such a positive and uplifting writer who most definitely contributes a very thoughtful blog of his own.
As a recipient is my honor to award my own thinking bloggers:
1. Adrienne: This incredibly talented and skilled sewer, knitter, photographer and crafter extraordinaire encourages me to think beyond my own limitations in creativity. She inspires me in new ways each and every time I read her blog. Seeing her commitment to nurturing her own beautiful family encourages me in my own motherhood journey.
2. Words n Such: That Journalist will definitely keep you in the loop with whatever is new and current in the black entertainment world. Her thoughtful pieces have a journalistic edge that gives you a very clear peek into her future as a successful author and entrepreneur. Her wisdom and insight as a soon to be college grad inspire me to no end- a mother, wife, and writer who already has it all together at an age where I could barely tell up from down. Thank you for your dedication to your craft and ventures.
3. Paula Mooney: Paula is not one to hold back her true thoughts and opinions on her blog, which is an incredibly fresh change of pace. She is definitely a wiz when it comes to putting together marketing and profiting from online pursuits, and her openness in sharing her own successful techniques has been beneficial to me in more than one occasion. She is also a very talented writer, providing very insightful glimpses into her real life experiences, which leads me to look forward to reading her memoirs someday. I don’t always fully agree with her approach to some things (particularly the mention of my sorority) but her focus forces me to stretch my own mind to reach beyond what is comfortable or easy to address.
4. Why Black Women Are Angry: I recently discovered this blog and it blew my mind away. I’m not sure about who the author(s) of this blog are but they are addressing issues from a view which resonates deep within my spirit. The ideas examined on this blog are current but timeless, not just addressing the anger but coming to terms with and healing from so many things we all encounter. This blog will make you think.
5. Afrobella: Afrobella inspires me to be a better me. There are many beauty/hair/makeup blogs in the blogosphere but Afrobella addresses both the made up and completely natural side of our beauty as black women. She can dish the latest product finds while still providing deeply introspective and moving homage to our ancestors. This blog is more than skin deep, it inspires me to find my true inner beauty.
I am so grateful for the blogosphere and all of the support and education it provides. Thank you to all of you out there who are providing food for thought and uplifting the african-american community in the process.
