BGC + KRISTEN

I did a thing.

The day that I decided I was going to get back into writing again, I did a little bit of exploring for inspiration. For some creative minds, when you haven’t been practicing with your craft/talent, it’s likely due to falling out of love with your passion. I wanted to see what was still out there, what was new out there, etc. I stumbled across BGC, (Blk Girl Culture) a blog engineered by black women, for black women. Pop Culture, Politics/Activism, Lifestyle, Music, Health & Beauty, Fashion–all curated by Black women.

After hours of reading posts and drawing inspiration, I saw that they were looking for writers for the winter. They were looking for writers for any topic, wanting to center their voice. My inner voice started speaking to me and I said, “hey, girl! Let’s do this!”. Sometimes, you have to stop holding yourself back. Anyway, I submitted my writing for what was considered the application process.

You’re Hired.

See what happens when you just… leap? Faith can bring many things your way when you just believe. Now, your girl will be writing weekly blog articles for http://blkgirlculture.com, from January 2020 to March 2020. I will be starting and continuing conversations in Health/Beauty for an audience of 100,000+! Blk Girl Culture has also had posts that have been featured in magazines and new sources like Complex, Teen Vogue, CNN, BBC, and Blavity among others.

I am so excited for this opportunity! I can’t wait to write, it’s been awhile. I was only looking for the light to spark a bit, and with opportunities like this, the passion came right back. I hope some of you get to catch some of my posts! Leave me a comment and tell me which one(s) that you may have read, which one(s) you liked/disliked.
