Updates: What’s Going On At Brown Girl Bloggers

updatesI know I say this a lot but thank you. Thank you so much for supporting this blog and for supporting your fellow Brown Girl Bloggers. When I started this blog less than a year ago I did it with the hopes that I would connect with a few bloggers of color and have someone who understood the struggles of blogging to turn to. Now, I can say I’ve done that and so much more.

I now know so many AMAZING women of color who blog. I’ve never met most of you in real life but we talk like we’ve been friends forever.

I want that for everyone reading this.

In November I decided to really get serious about this brand and connecting with women of color because we do great things in numbers. It sucks that there are so many amazing bloggers of color but that they get little to no recognition when it comes to major campaigns, magazines or other opportunities.

Can we change that?

I’m not sure but I know that we can try and we can support each other. So, here’s how you can support the movement.

Tell Someone About BGB

Tell at least one person about us on social media. I would love for you to tweet, Facebook, Instagram or write a Tumblr post about us. I want to grow this community so spread the word. Without numbers we can’t control much.

Join the Brown Girl Think Tank

This will be a great resource for you to talk with other women who understand what you’re going through and get honest feedback about your career and blog. Sometimes talking with family and friends doesn’t cut it when they can’t actually understand what you’re going through. You’ll also be supporting this blog’s outreach efforts. Read more here.

Support The Blog Through Advertising

We’re now offering ad space to companies and bloggers. Even if you don’t buy an advertising spot make sure you support our advertisers so they get their money’s worth.

Fill Out The Survey

I want to host live events but I need to know where we have a concentrated number of members. Take a moment to fill out the survey on the sidebar or click here.

Participate In Our Twitter Chats

If you get the newsletters you already know that I’ve decided to host Twitter chats twice a month on the first and third Tuesday. In February our chats will be on the 3rd and 17th at 5:30p Pacific Time and 8:30p Eastern Time. Mark your calendars and be there! I’ll have a full post about our next chat up later this week.

Oh, and if you don’t get the newsletter… shame on you! Sign up below.

Support Your Fellow Brown Girl Blogger

If you don’t know another Brown Girl Blogger we have a ton of them on the blog roll. Support by reading a new blog, following a new blogger on social media or just by giving an encouraging word. You never know how much that can help.

Is there anything you would like to see on the site or in the community?

  • I had the same problem which is why I created this site.

  • Thanks for your support

  • Only recently stumbled across this site and I’m so glad I did. Really looking forward to becoming part of the community. I’ve spent hours in the past scouring Google links looking for quality blogs by us, and I always come across the same few links.

  • I’m so thankful to have stumbled across this site. So many goodies and useful tips all in one place. Great work and I’m excited to be a part of this awesome community. Thanks for your hard work!

  • I joined this community recently, but I already feel like it’s embraced me and I love the supportive feeling that purveys, largely due to you Candice. Thanks for thinking BGB up! I’m excited for the next twitter chat, since I missed the last one.

  • I agree with everything you’re saying. I really hope all of this stuff fosters deeper connections.

    Thanks for your support!

  • Good idea.

  • You’re doing so many amazing things with this platform already!! I can see it growing into a real powerhouse. The twitter chat was fun the other day. I’m especially excited for more deets on the think tank and the local meetups. Following each other on Twitter is cool, but I unfortunately don’t have a lot of time to interact on there or read everyone’s blogs regularly. These BGB initiatives will definitely help forge more of a bond with this community of fellow entrepreneurs/bloggers. :-)

  • Twice a month twitter chats sounds good! I’ll be there. In terms of what I’d like to see on the site, I’d say more tutorials. I think it’d be beneficial to provide step-by-step pictorial posts on how to do certain things (e.g. install Google Analytics, Disqus, etc.).
