Someone had mentioned before that there appears to be a relative dearth of good Black blogs and news sources, and coincidentally it’s those blogs and news sources that I’m looking for now.
Fire off an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the URLs for any and all Black-run:
- Political blogs/journals
- Entertainment blogs/journals
- Culture blogs/journals
- Business blogs/journals
- Sex/Relationships blogs/journals
- Health blogs/journals
- Professional blogs/journals
- Technology blogs/journals
- News blogs/journals
- Online magazines
These are just examples and I’m sure I’ve left out some categories, so feel free to send me anything relevant in any category I may have left out.
Very important, however, is that you NOT send in any personal blogs (i.e. online diaries). It’s ok to send in blogs written by a single author that address issues relevant to some segment of the Black community – but people’s musings about their personal dating histories or how the weather made them sad last Wednesday couldn’t possibly be of less interest to me, or anyone else for that matter.
Please please PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE send these through EMAIL and don’t just leave the URLs buried in the comments section. I know some people are nervous about revealing their email addresses to me, but as the (literally) thousands of folks who have emailed me before can attest, I DO NOT SPAM.
