I was never big on blogging. Actually, I’m probably the most technologically unsound blogger you’ll ever come across, even though I started a natural hair blog earlier this year. I actually came across Black n’ Bougie on accident. A member of a listserv of which I’m a part sent a link to one of OneChele’s posts, and I thought it was extremely hilarious. So much so that I would check her blog every now and then to see what she had to say. I thought the girl (well really lady) was a genius! She had me cracking up! She was witty, funny, told a great story, and even forced me to do some self-reflection. She speaks on so many different topics and always has a poignant point to make. (And I, of course, check out this blog on a daily basis, the only blog that gets that much attention from me-besides my own!)
When I started Southern Girl, I wanted to emulate BnB. Then of course I came to realize that I can only be me. I don’t ever want to be a carbon copy of someone. But I must say that OneChele is my Blog Inspiration, if there is such a thing! I follow her on Twitter and have commented on a post or five! I highly encourage all of you to check out her blog, even some of her older stuff. She covers everything from pop culture to sports to politics, all with a bougie twist! So thank you, OneChele, for being my inspiration and making me challenge myself.
So, do you guys have a favorite blog? If so, what is it? And why is it your favorite? Until next time, I’m just a Southern Girl..in the city!
P.S. OneChele, I hope you don’t mind my borrowing your heading! 😉
Aw, I’m all misty. How sweet. Borrow away, what’s mine is yours. Keep doing your thing, it’s looking good! 😉 We Southern Girls have to stay together.
Don’t cry! Thanks so much for coming by to visit. And yes, we Southern Girls must stick together!
I found your log via BnB, and I’m a fan of both! 🙂
Thanks, Jasmin. I checked out your site as well, and I love what you have to say. Yours will be one I continue to check out on a regular basis!
Thanks Elle! Unfortunately, I can’t get in on the “Southern girl love” (I’m from Chicago), but I will be stopping by often. 🙂
