With the recent downplay of natural hair vloggers by Essence Magazine, many vloggers/bloggers have been asking others for one, simple request…be supportive instead of tearing one another down.
Here is African Export’s view on the topic:
There is truly enough internet to go around, so there is no reason to “diss” natural women sharing their journey with the world.
Guest blogger, Jenni Lovette, had the following to say.
“There is nothing like having a strong support system. Whether it’s your family, friends, church members, co- workers, or just the general public, we all need support.
As women, we spend way too much time sizing each other up and I feel it’s time to change the whole idea that women don’t support each other. Can we do that?
I’m not saying you have to build a complete marketing program for your fellow lady friend, but a little push here and there has never hurt anyone. I absolutely LOVE sharing other designers, and biz owner’s info by word of mouth and social networks. It’s just my small way of showing love & support.
Being a small business owner today can be a dream OR a nightmare depending on how you pave the way. Add being a woman to that equation and who knows what battles you’ll face.
I say all of this to say, I love all of the designers, artists, crafters, creative minds, etc, and I will always support small businesses to the best of my abilities.
I challenge everyone who’s reading this to help another business out from time to time. Retweeet a link. Refer them to someone. Do a blog post on them. Review a product and give your honest feedback. BUY something!..LOL There are SO many ways to show support and trust me, it’s not taking any profit away from you.
God blesses those who bless others.
I love you guys!
