I got the idea to start Black Fashion Bloggers a few weeks before the first post. I created the blog but hesitated to post wondering "Will people be interested in reading this?" "Is it separatist?" Nevertheless, a few weeks after creating a blogspot name, I received an e-mail from someone who came across the blog. She wanted to let me know that she thought the concept was great, and that she was excitedly awaiting my first post. Her e-mail provided me with the gumption to get Black Fashion Bloggers off the ground when I posted the first feature.
In one year, I've gotten tremendous words of encouragement in support of the blog, and I thank you! I've "met" and discovered a range of beautiful bloggers who I've had the pleasure to feature on BFB. Through the blog, I learned that no, BFB is not separatist in any form. It's celebratory. It celebrates black fashion, black beauty and creativity. It's a platform that shows the diversity of style, beauty, and fabulosity we bring to fashion as black women and (men).
I excitedly look forward to see the continued growth of BFB. Thank you so much for reading and contributing. It means a lot to me. Happy First Birthday BFB!!!!!!!!
