Yesterday I launched a new series for my job (job? yes–I have a job! more on it later—I’m too busy working). It is called “How I Made It” and it profiles Black women who have made it in the fashion and beauty industry. Our first episode features Mikki Taylor, former Beauty & Cover Editor for […]

I’ve been super busy lately because I have been in the throws of producing  an original web series for a client.

Just a quick note to let you know my first post for the 53rd Annual GRAMMY Awards season is up on GRAMMY.com! The post is titled, “Map Your Music Memories,” and in the post I review the pretty spiffy MusicMapper app The Recording Academy launched earlier this month. I think the iPhone app is cool […]

I’ve been keeping a secret for some time now and I guess it is finally time to let it all hang out. I have been invited to be a Blogger At Large for the 53rd GRAMMY Awards! You may remember that I was a GRAMMY Community Blogger At Large earlier this year for the 52nd […]

Just thought I would post my presentation deck from my Bare Bones Blogging session from today’s WordCampNYC. Keep in mind this presentation was intended for beginning bloggers, those new to WordPress or those looking to make the leap from WordPress.com blogging to WordPress.org blogging.
