Thanks for the feedback Cynique. Your points about knowing proper english versus street slang are very well received and if the site is going to educate and inform on one side it should definitely do the same on the other. As with all my responses I would ask of you that if you know anyone who would like to contribute any content (related to the 6 survival guide topics OR a general topic that we should know about) to please have them email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. This site will only work if people much smarter than I contribute their content!
Thanks for the comments careycarey. I am completely down for constructive criticism. As far as the name Team Afro is concerned, we had that name before we came to this forum so unfortunately I don't see that changing. In regards to the content, the purpose of the site is to provide something that you may not know and/or need to know. If the site has not done that for you then it has failed you. Granted we are just getting started (launch date August 1) and there will be much more content in the upcoming days, weeks and months but we want every piece of content we place to be relevant in some way whether it is educational, informative, enlightening and in some cases a little humorous. The main point I want to make here is that this is a community project. The writers at AfroDaddy (just another way to say black fathers) are really just seeding the site with their content. The point of the site is for contributors (like you and the members of this forum) to submit content by asking questions, answering questions, providing comments and/or submitting articles. We also want to recommend more in depth writings from authors (black or otherwise) who will enlighten the community with their insights, again providing black men with ideas, concepts and strategies that they may not be aware of. Keep the good comments coming careycarey and don't hold back. Criticism is what makes us all better!
As a black man I've got way too many questions with too few answers. I got tired of waiting for someone else to create the site that tries to answer these questions so we decided to create it. The Black Man's Survival Guide is located at www.afrodaddy.com and it contains articles about basic survival skills for black men as well as information on how to save money and be more efficient. We hope the site provides black men information about things that they don't know but need to know to help themselves and their families. This is a community project and we need the ideas and content of all the positive, literate and intelligent brothers and sisters in this forum. First, tell me if this is a good idea and second, give me some advise about getting some good, relevant content. Thank you AALBC members!
