A Brief Blog Profile: A Black Girl’s Guide to Weight Loss

In observance of February's Black History Month, PR Newswire's multicultural experts are profiling some notable blogs. Over the next week, we'll take a close look at a number of diverse African-American blogs that cover a range of topics, from urban automobiles and travel adventures to beauty and relationships. Did you miss our previous reviews? Here's BrownGirlsFly and HUEKNEWIT.

A Black Girl’s Guide to Weight Loss is an extremely popular blog with 108,000-plus likes on Facebook, more than 8,000 Twitter followers, and 123,000 email subscribers. It appears many want to know the secret of how Erika Nicole Kendall went from weighing 330 pounds to becoming a personal trainer.

Kendall reveals just how she did it, starting with a section on Emotional Eating and another on Body Image, where popular posts include “Black Women, Our Bodies & Perceptions of Beauty: The Booty.” Kendall is a fan of yoga, and the blog features sections on exercise, beauty, culture, celeb watching, and recipes. There’s even an online store to purchase yoga gear.

A Black Girl’s Guide to Weight Loss is an inspiring blog that is filled with great advice from someone who has been there. It’s updated several times daily with tools to help you achieve your goals. All you need is the dedication and willpower to be the size and shape you want to be.

Dalia Paratore is PR Newswire's director of Multicultural Products and Services.

News Widget

Our widget allows you to display PR Newswire content on your site with very little back-end programming required.  You not only get the headline, but also the body of text of the news release, keeping the user on your site at all times.  In order to do so, the difference between our Widget and other widgets is at the end of the sign-up process, you will be provided with two pieces of source code -- one for the page where the Widget itself will be displayed and one for the pages that will display the body of text of each news release.  In addition, the sign-up process allows you to have 100 percent control over every aspect of the Widget's appearance, so that the Widget can blend in fully with the look and feel of your site. Still not convinced? Here's what one blogger had to say about the widget.
