Welcome to another edition of Style & Scopes, your monthly plus size style horoscope!
BlackEnterprise.com launches Black Blogger Month Honoring its Top 20 Bloggers and I am one of them!
To say that I am honored is an understatement! It truly is an amazing blessing to be recognized by a magazine that I have been reading, I think since inception? MAN! Toe Curl excitement! AND to be included among some of my faves??? WOOT!
So what is Black Blogger Month?
Well, Black Blogger Month is Black Enterprise’s way of recognizing black bloggers across varied disciplines and niches for their work on the blogosphere! This year is their second one, in which fellow plus size blogger GabiFresh was acknowledged last year for her efforts and hard work!
Each day, for the month of May, a different blogger will be revealed! I am not sure when I will be featured, but stay tuned! To kick off the festivities, Miss Divas and Dorks, Christen fashioned a video with Black Enterprise talking about the month and she kicked off the feature!
