ReBlog- Fellas, Good Luck Finding that Perfect Purple Flying Unicorn That Lays Golden Eggs

Yesterday, my blog idol/play cousin/friend-in-my-head Michele Grant, over at Black n’ Bougie reiterated why I LOVE her blog.  The title of my post today is her post from yesterday.  While the world, and I literally mean the entire world, tells single, educated, successful (Black) women what we need to do in order to get a man, no one is talking to the men…and I mean nobody.  I don’t think Steve Harvey has written a book yet directed towards (Black) men instructing them on what they need to do in order to find that “special, perfect one”.   I haven’t seen a book titled, “Why Women Love A–holes” (a play on words to the book “Why Men Love B-tches”).  And correct me if I’m wrong, but I haven’t seen a book titled “Make Her Beg to be Your Girlfriend”; yes, there is a book with this similar title-change “Girlfriend” to “Boyfriend”.  So my girl Chele gave men a mirror, told them to take a look, and strongly suggested they do a little self-evaluation.  To see if they are as great as they would like everyone to think they are.  To see if they are bringing to the table what they DEMAND in a mate.

So, I strongly implore all of you to mosey on over and take a look at her post from yesterday.  Sometimes, I think Michele and I were separated at birth.  She’s Southern, she’s a writer, we share the same last name, and, most importantly, she loves Prince and the color purple (not the movie, but the actual color).   Feel free to comment on my blog, her blog, or both.  And if you do not read her blog on a regular basis, you are losing in life.  Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!

My Favorite Blog

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 the city!

P.S. OneChele, I hope you don’t mind my borrowing your heading! 😉
