5 Brothers Who Blog
The internet is a crowded community with new neighbors moving in the blogosphere every millisecond. While some blogs are practically household names, some really cool ones may not be on your radar just yet. Here are five that we think you should know tweet about!
Brandon Frame is the Founder & Chief Visionary Officer for TheBlackManCan.org. Brandon founded his organization with the thought that young black males need to have positive images in their lives. He was and is still correct. Where else online can brothers find such positive stories about themselves and their community? Bravo Brandon!
James “JK” Allen is the “Hustler” behind HustlersNotebook.com. He says, “I’m determined to fully execute my mission of providing you with experience-based, value-rich content in the domain of personal development, for business and life.” And by golly, I think he’s doing the damn thang! We especially like that he calls his site, “a place of principle.” JK says “If I haven’t lived it, then I won’t write about it.” My goal is to help as many people as possible recognize their immeasurable potential in business and life.
You gotta love Frank Jennings, founder and one of the writers at ASparkStarts.com. A Detroit native, who loves to write, read, plays basketball, play video games and hang out with my friends and family. Did I mention the church Deacon also married his high school sweetheart?His inspiring stories come from some really challenging life lessons. He’s been fired from a job. He’s been broke. And lost to the point he says, “I have been consumed by fear.” Frank is a glass half-full kinda guy and his inspiring stories truly move you. It doesn’t hurt that he’s also hilarious. A spark starts wherever Frank is y’all and we are there!
Ib’nallah S. Kazi knows good health. The founder of My Body Temple is also a healthyblackmen.org contributor and all-around cool dude. Kazi to his friends, he combines his knowledge of health, fitness, and adventure to help clients make lifestyle transformations for self-healing and personal development. His approach to wellness focuses on guiding you on the journey of clarifying your relationship to the six natural healers in your life: nutrition, exercise, sleep, detoxification, self-awareness and social support. Wellness is just one Kazi away!
Black Gay Men’s Blog was created as a space where black gay and bisexual men, MSM and other men of color can come together to share information, support and learn from one another. Lord knows black gay men deal with a lot of social bias; this site is a safe space in the storm. Black Gay Men’s Blog aims to collectively inspire awareness and individuality. The site is also a good option for heterosexual allies interested in topics of interest important to their same-gender loving brothers.
As you can see while there may be a shortage of fair and balance coverage of stories and topics related to black men and their communities, the internet is full of them. Stay tuned for future installments where we bring other interesting and important websites to your attention. Until then, click and connect.
