A Brief Blog Profile: Black Girl Nerds
In observance of February’s Black History Month, we're featuring some notable African-American blogs selected by PR Newswire's multicultural team. These blogs cover everything from health to lifestyle. Keep an eye on this space every Wednesday in February for more African-American blogs. Did you miss last week's blog? Here you go.
Black Girl Nerds proudly proclaims to be a geek-only zone.
It was created by Jamie Broadnax in Feb. 2012. The story goes like this: After an evening of boredom, Broadnax Googled the term "Black Girl Nerds." Nothing came up, so the blog was born.
"Black Girl Nerds is a place for women of color with various eccentricities to express themselves freely and embrace who they are," the blog says. "This is not a site exclusively for black women. It's for all women who are just as nerdy as we are."
Broadnax has written for Madame Noire and has been recognized by the Black Weblog Awards as the New Blogger on the Block, according to Black Girl Nerds.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Top 10 Black Female Cartoon Characters -- and fully agreed with the top three (Spoiler alert from first to third: Storm from X-Men; Shana Elmsford from Jem; and Susie Carmichael from Rugrats.) Another interesting recent post was the BGN Healthy Eating Series: 30 Great Recipes for a Healthy 2014.
