I have been wanting to do this post for months, but finally decided to do it, being that it is Black History Month, and a celebration of our contributions to America and the world. There are so many blogs out there that I read—some of them are huge blogs and some are very small. I do not read blogs based on their size but rather on their content. It is all about quality and not quantity for me.

A huge faction of blogs that I read are from Brown Bloggers—as a blogger of color myself, I enjoy supporting others who are working to get to the next level just like I am. So I wanted to point them out and make you familiar if you aren’t already reading their blogs. Hopefully, you are able to add them to your reader or subscribe to their feeds and share them with your friends as well.

And my list is not just of African American bloggers—I have included other “brown” bloggers in the mix as well.

Some people on this list are people I personally know, but I read their blogs just the same. Some of them are people I wish I knew or hope to meet in person one day.

      Hey girlie! I will most certainly stop by your blog. I, too, blog about lifestyle work, life, and play, so I really like to visit sites that discuss some of the same things I do!

    First off, thank you for adding me to this list. I’m very grateful and honored. That type of acknowledgement makes me feel good, considering that I’m just now finding my blog mojo and have been ON it. This gave me an extra kick!

    I will def. check out the blogs on this list. I’m always looking for more blogs to get into, rather than your typical one. I appreciate this list and will share via twitter.

    I could have SWORN that I cam through here in all of my excitement, but I see that I have forgotten one more thing. Please forgive me for my late thanks! I love this list, and not just because I’m mentioned. It really does cover the realm of brown bloggers and show that we are multifaceted!

    Thanks so much for the feature. I’m going to be clicking on some new links this week!
