Something clicked in me this past week.  I felt like I just had. to. know where all the black, Christian bloggers are.  So.  Like any good Netizen I began making a Twitter list.  I also consulted Deidra Riggs’ post Where IS e’rybody?  (You can find my Twitter list of Black, Christian Bloggers here).

Ta Da…

BCB twitter list

It doesn’t matter where I am or in the country -or the world for that matter- I always want to know where black people are gathering.  It makes me somewhat sad it took me this long to start an earnest look to find my folks online.

Hopefully, you’ll forgive this bold statement but it hit me hard the other day: there A LOT of white, Christian bloggers & sometimes I feel…lost in it.  I realized if I wanted to hear from more black voices I’d have to seek them out, I didn’t realize it would be an ALL OUT SEARCH.  And as you can see, I’m only at 29.

Will you help me out?  If you are, or know of any other black, Christian bloggers (even if they aren’t blogging on faith) please let me know.

I’m going to actively tweet with this list, retweet my new friends & try to showcase some new voices here on GwG.  The list is public, so feel free to follow along.

Shortly after I made this list, I got a nice little affirmation from Kristi Scott

HA! I love it when something I’ve done leads someone to hash-tag-it-up with #ImBlackAndImProud

(Me too, Kristi)!
