I created a little community called Melanin Bloggers. Where representation lacked in the main spaces I wanted there to be somewhere bloggers of colour could see themselves and represent themselves. I think that diversity is important and not being represented in large spaces is disheartening and problematic. I want writers and bloggers to have somewhere that they could exist and where they could be the star of the show. It’s a growing community and the values of collaboration and empowerment are ingrained. Here’s to the growth and development of this little project.
If you want to be apart of the Melanin Bloggers community you can add the badge to your blog. Just copy and paste the code into your blog.
Melanin Business is a platform to widen the reach of black-owned businesses.
If you would like to share your business or product with bloggers of colour please get in touch at MELANINBLOGGERS@GMAIL.COM and we can work together. I offer social media management services and product photography.
Melanin Business and Melanin Bloggers are projects to promote representation and collaboration.
