  1. Given that President Obama went around the Black establishment, he never needed the Black press. So why would he go through this venue?
  2. So true. Without a blog, your words have no where to live, so to speak.
  3. Greetings all. Join me, Marc Polite, Lisa King, and Stanley Fritz to a book discussion in Washington Heights.
  4. Good morning all. I would like to be part of this effort as a blogger myself. Here is my site: www.politeonsociety.com
  5. Just registered today. I will be going.
  6. Political blogger, and social commentator Marc Polite is an author hailing from Harlem, New York. His second release titled “Everything to Learn, Nothing to Teach” is now available on Amazon. A collection of essays on social issues, politics and life as a husband and father is sure to spark plenty of conversation during the Spring and Summer reading season. Catch Marc in Washington, DC during the 2015 Blogger Week. He’s scheduled to lend his experience on the panel “From Blog to Book: Leveraging Your Social Media Presence to Become An Author”. If you can’t wait until then, stop in to Word Up Bookstore in Manhattan. Mr. Polite is the founder and Editor in Chief of Polite On Society, an award winning blog of social commentary, political analysis and literary reviews. His commentary has been featured in The Grio, Time Magazine, Black Star News, BMORENEWS, The New England Informer, and The Atlanta Post. If you are looking for unbiased and comprehensive dialogue on society and and culture than I invite you to follow him online and keep up with his current projects on either Twitter or Facebook. You won’t be disappointed.
  7. Now, as for your bigger conversations about the state of the blogosphere, Troy, I would have to say that you have a point. It definitely is dominated by Black women. That in itself is not a problem in my opinion, but the rarity of Black men blogging is noticeable. I don't know what it would take to change that. Honestly, being in the blogosphere for 6 years, its really difficult to make money off of this. Most bloggers definitely are not making the bulk of their money off blogging. Many will move on to the next thing, whatever that will be.
  8. Greetings Troy and CD Burns. I'm glad I am able to see your conversation about Black male bloggers. I know of a few, but that's because there are really not that many of us. Off the top, there is Stanley Fritz of Let Your Voice Be Heard, http://www.lyvbh.com/, Mumia Ali of A Voice for Men, http://www.avoiceformen.com/sexual-politics/m-g-t-o-w/a-blue-collar-brotha-apeaks-at-last/, Panama Jackson and Damon Young of Very Smart Brothas, http://verysmartbrothas.com/ . There are a few more, but I think that's a good start.

    You're welcome Troy. That's awesome. I have informed a few of my blogger friends about Huria. I'm sure you will get to 200 relatively soon. I found this conversation by browsing the forum. I will take a look at that conversation, and jump in on that thread. Thanks for the profile page! I truly appreciate that.
