Random Brazen Thoughts: #WeNeedDiverseBloggers

Monday, July 20, 2015

A blog I follow came up with a great hashtag and I wanted to share it. Musings of Romance Junkie wrote this post Follow These Blogs where she gave a shout out to diverse blogs/bloggers and we can't thank them enough for giving Brazen Babe Reviews a shout out. But you know, I don't think her hashtag #WeNeedDiverseBloggers received enough attention, so I'm sharing it here.

I follow a good amount of Diverse bloggers, Marcia at BookSwagger, Braine at TalkSupe, Melissa at Lily Element and a host of others. We are out there, we just need to take the time to look. I'm black and Ana is Samoan so you see, we are very diverse, lols. But you know I would like to see more of us because at the end of the day, we bloggers need one another. I read this post that Anna over at Herding Cats and Burning Soup put up and it got me to thinking that, we bloggers get the royal shit end of the stick sometimes and that makes me sad. Because something that most of us view as a hobby or as something where we use our blog to spotlight a certain reading genre or for whatever reason you run your blog...our love for blogging is getting bogged down with nonsense.

So before I get all off the point, I want to take this time and this post to give a shout out to Musings blog and #WeNeedDiverseBloggers, because we do. We need more diverse blogs, blogs that focus a mirage of diverse books. If you run a diverse blog, if you are a diverse blogger no matter what genre you read, I'm going to ask you to leave your link below and if you know of a diverse blog or blogger...share this post. Hell, share this post regardless and tweet this hashtag and please give credit to @musingsirj, which is a awesome blog to follow. They give it to you straight, no chaser :)

This is my commitment to doing just that, finding and following more diverse blogs. I just don't want to talk, I want to walk the walk (as my grandmother use to say, lols). Join me?

*remember to click on the blog post to share it...many thanks!
