Who we are & what we do.

Way Back When...

Brown Girl Bloggers was created in 2014 to promote, encourage, and unite minority women who create content online. Since then we’ve evolved into a thriving community of online influencers who have audiences on every online platform. Our purpose is to bring diversity to the online landscape by connecting influencers with brands, the media, and each other. We achieve our goals through our blog, social media, and soon... live events. If you’re a Brown Girl Blogger become a member and if you’re a company looking to sponsor an event or create a blogger campaign connect with us at info@browngirlbloggers.com

Our Objectives Are To:

• Educate and inspire minority women through this blog and our social media presence. • Create exposure for minority women who create content online. • Connect influencers with brands so that both influencer and brand can enjoy a mutually beneficial relationship. • Connect our community through events. These events range from workshops where they learn the business of blogging to happy hours so that they can connect with each other and brands.


On the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month we chat on Twitter about a topic meant to encourage and inspire. Follow us (@browngirlblogs) to participate to stay up to date.

Each chat starts at 5:30p PST // 8:30p EST
