A Brief Blog Profile: MadameNoire
In observance of February's Black History Month, PR Newswire's multicultural experts profiled some notable blogs. Over the last week, we took a look at some diverse African-American blogs that cover a range of topics, from urban automobiles and travel adventures to beauty and relationships. Tomorrow's the last day. Miss a few? Here's BrownGirlsFly and HUEKNEWIT.
MadameNoire is an upscale site geared toward black women. Since 2007, MadameNoire has built a solid following, and on Facebook, the site has garnered around 15,000 followers. Not too shabby.
Topics include business, love, entertainment, hair, beauty, health and living. MadameNoire has an edgy yet affectionate tone. It’s clearly geared toward strong, independent women as video sections like “Mommy in Chief” and “She’s the Boss” can attest. Another interesting part of the site is "Ask a Black Man," where more than dozen men give their thoughts on subjects including marriage, dating, and relationships.
MadameNoire is a Moguldum Media Group digital site. Others include Bossip, Hip-HopWired, 24Wired, StyleBlazer and MommyNoire. The content on these sites is fun and refreshing, and the sites are attractive, too. Thumbs up.
