Well, I finally did it. After many teasing posts and IG stories, I have decided to go out on a limb and start my own blog!
Welcome to A Black Girl Blogging, a lifestyle blog by yours truly, dedicated to all things fashion, hair, beauty and more, from a black girl perspective.
What’s the deal?
So often I’ve seen plenty of blogs and websites centered around a white girl’s lifestyle, but very few centered around a black one. This blog was created with black girls in mind.
While I won’t be talking about race issues all the time, just know that everything I write has the ultimate goal of making a girl like me feel more included in the blogging community.
My blog will center mainly around beauty, fashion, hair and overall lifestyle topics. Below is a list of things you can expect to be on the blog some day, if not one day soon:
- Beauty – best dark lip shades for dark skinned girls, makeup brands I swear by
- Fashion – things you need in your winter closet, how to rock fur and not feel guilty
- Hair – natural hair products that won’t break the bank, the pros and cons of protective styles
- Lifestyle – staying sane during finals week, how to save money without sacrificing good food
In addition to those topics, I will also have a category dedicated solely for my thoughts: #imo (short for in my opinion). This can range anywhere from something going on in the news to just my top celeb crushes! As I grow and write more, I hope to have more categories.
“Enough about your blog, Tandra. What about you?”
I mean, if you insist.
I’m Tandra Smith, a 20 year old junior journalism major from outside of Atlanta, Georgia. I currently attend Georgia Southern University and I am member of Delta Phi Epsilon! I’m also on staff at my school’s newspaper: The George Anne.
I’m a self proclaimed thrift store fashionista and I’m almost always rocking a dark purple or red lip. I’m a Leo and I fit all the stereotypes.
This isn’t my first foray into a blog (RIP YA book blog), but I hope this will be one that I stick to.
I’ve always loved writing and I want to keep up my skills by adding content to this blog. If I get famous because of it, well, I’m not complaining!
So, will I keep up with this blog? Want to wish me well wishes on this new blogging journey? Let me know in the comments below!
Until next time,
