taysaffirmations asked: this is cliche but i'd just like to tell me how much i love your blog. i enjoy reading articles empowering black women because exposing a lot of the issues in "the black collective" without playing the victim card; instead of inactive complaints about how "the country/society doesn't do anything for/is unfair towards black women," your blog focuses on the proactive attitude that black women need in order to live prosperous lives. Your blog offers a myriad of subjects to ponder over that revolve around both our physical and mental well-beings. The thing that really appeals to me, however, is the fact that you can effectively present your ideas on such a heavy topic as race, ideas that I've either always thought but could never articulate or have never noticed until you brought light upon the issue. Sorry this is so long, but I want to encourage you in sharing your thoughts with us. (:
Seriously, your comment just made my day! Thank you for the lovely words!!
“Sorry this is so long, but I want to encourage you in sharing your thoughts with us.”
Umm have you seen my replies?? This is far from long :) I would love to share more of my thoughts, but I would like to hear more from the subbies. There are A TON of you but only a few of you interact with me. Am I that scary?? Or are people afraid of revealing themselves? That’s what the “anon” option is for people lol.

This is what I have gotten and continue to receive from the BWE blogosphere. Starting this blog is how I show my gratitude for being woken up from the voluntary coma I was in.
If there are certain topics/questions/comments you or anyone reading would like to talk about that does not involve the USUAL ranting/complaining with no action that AA’s have become synonymous with, then drop me a message.
Thanks again for the encouraging words : )
