I 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?
