BILLION DOLLAR MOMS: Time to respect Black mom bloggers and their billion dollar audiences


Single black mom blog

(TheSingleMomClub.com) – Yet another white mom stomped onto my site last week, questioning why I write for and about moms of color. Apparently, the word “brown” in my blog title made her feel some kinda ways about my posts, subject matter, and intent, and she questioned why, if “everyone wants to be celebrated and recognized as ‘equal,’” I would “segregate” myself with a blog about skin color.

imageUm, you really want to make my nostrils flare? Tell me that you “don’t see color.” Or that we’re all the same — no matter the color, race, income level, background, origin, beliefs. Or that by simply acknowledging and speaking to issues that affect Black moms specifically, I’m “segregating” myself.

Let me be very clear: I’ve been a working journalist since my senior year in high school, and in my lengthy career, I’ve covered everything from murder and politics to entertainment and parenting and everything in between with great joy, care, and skill. Not every story of mine has been about Black people. One of these days I’ll give you the low down on the time I interviewed George Clooney in a swanky New York City hotel, or what it was like to hold a miniature tape recorder in former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani’s face during a mayoral press conference.

Black mom bloggers have billion dollar audiencesBut, I’m an African American mom with brown babies, and I take great pleasure in writing about the issues that moms of color and mothers of children of color face as we raise our kids.

And while I happily co-sign the idea that at the base of it, all we moms want the same things for our children — for them to be happy, healthy, smart, kind, honest, trustworthy, successful human beings — we simply do not all parent the same, and there absolutely ARE issues that I deal with as an African American mom that white moms would never have to think about if they’re not raising a brown child.

Niche Parent: Why I support Nadia Jones

image(TheSingleMomClub.com) – During a blogging conference in Miami, I had the chance to meet Nadia Jones. I was in awe of her endless wardrobe changes, her driven work ethic and her dynamic personality. I planned to be a part of her conference last year but due to the Trayvon Martin boycott, I was unable to go to Florida. While I will always support Trayvon’s parents and their efforts, it is time to throw my full support behind the Niche Parent Social Media Family Conference.

Dedicated to excellence and compassion, Nadia is a dynamo in stiletos. I am eccited to attend her conference where I hope to speak and be a media sponsor. I plan to use my social media influence to become a Niche Parent Conference Ambassador to help her gain the recognition she deserves.

imageThe Niche Parent Network & Conference was founded in 2012 by Nadia, co-founder and creator of Blogalicious Weekend Conference. Nadia uses her experience as a social media strategist for a full-service ad agency, and her experience with Blogalicious, to serve as a launching pad for The Niche Parent Network & Conference. A veteran blogger of seven years, former attorney, and mother, Nadia connects with and understands bloggers and the various niches in which they represent. Nadia’s cross-cultural background also allows her to easily connect with bloggers from many different backgrounds.

The Niche Parent Social Media Family Conference takes place October 16-18, 2014 in Florida.

MOVIE REVIEW: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 premiere in New York City was epic

SPIDER-MAN 2 premiere in New York City!

(www.TheSingleMomClub.com) – Last year, I was named a McDonald’s social media influencer, so a few weeks before McDonald’s unveils a new event or toy McD’s sends giftcards, preview toys or invites us to participate in a social media campaign. As a social media influencer with Sony Pictures, I was invited to the red carpet premiere of “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” and private screening in NYC on April 24, 2014.

I am too much of a girly girl to be an authority on comic book movies, so I was thrilled to borrow fellow entertainment writer – and my partner in crime – Tony Williams, his “ready for Hollywood” son Jake and down for anything wife to help me translate the experience.

I arrived on time by media standards, meaning 30 or so minutes late in real time, and Jake had already snagged his first on-camera interview. We were given our VIP credentials and post event tickets and filled out the red carpet bleachers which were used in every cast interview by Entertainment Tonight, MTV News, Insider and PopSugar, among others. We were stuffed with props to wave at the cameras like masks of Spidey, Electrode and others, Spidey t-shirts, and the cutest little bottle of Evian water shaped like Spider-Man.

We saw stars like Chris Cooper, who plays a heartless father but in real life is a humbled actor who autographed all of our masks while saying, “Let’s do this!” We met “The Man in the Black Suit” who was so shocked I recognized him he literally stood in front of us speechless for a full 10 seconds. He finally asked, “Did they tell you to do this? Did you have a cheat sheet?” I confess that I snagged a press release and tipsheet prior but I felt a personal pride for him during the movie. his character is memorable. We saw the sexiest Spider-Man in recent memory, Pharrell, AJ Calloway, who gave me a quick update on his new baby saying, “She’s great! She is my heart!” before dashing off to earn her college fund. We chanted “Kendrick! Kendrick!” and made the superstar rapper blush. His song with Alicia Keys and Pharrell is a big deal in the movie. Biggest hits of the night was veteran actress Sally Field and Jamie Foxx who carried his beautiful daughter, Annalise, as she rocked Afro Puffs.

Later we happily ate pizza and drank kiddie beverages (next time I bring a flask), watched the kids play a not yet released version of the new “Amazing Spider-Man 2” video game and started to feel our feet come back to life. We were given an incredible Spidey swag bag and then screened the movie, which I personally felt was a little too scary for kids. Jake was sitting next to me and laughed hard everytime I screamed and jumped out of my seat like the boogeyman was under it. (Nope, I am not braver than a first grader.) Afterwards, every kid I spoke to – and their parents – said it was “the greatest” and “amazingly awesome!” It really is a must see film packed with surprises – and a Stan Lee cameo – that opens nationwide May 2. Jake’s mom really liked the movie, too, so it even earned a parental thumbs up.
