Mo' Blog Love

August 7, 2007
So, I got some more blog love! I tell you those fashion bloggers make me look bad updating all the time. This time it was Sylvia over at Steal Style
. After emailing her about our Essence Style Diary we kept in touch and she invited me to participate in her down to business segment. I was so pumped to be asked. And only y'all know my secret that I totally re-used some of the same answers I gave to Zandile. SHHH:)!
Tonight I'm off to a showcase with Bilal, Cheri Dennis and J. Holiday. My Cosmogirl.com horoscope for today said my mojo is on so I'll let you know how it goes:). And after being inspired by fly girl Kish yesterday I finally submitted this pitch I had for a men's magazine and actually might get a green light.

So after two fabulous fellow young black chicks showed me love on their blogs, I totally agree with Beyonce on her girl power tour to surround herself with women and the power of female friendship. I didn't make it to her concert *tear,* but I definitely am feeling that whole Flaws and All love.

Love you girls!

*The original BAPS knew Decatur was definitely where it was GREATER! East Side all day;)

    Hi CJ,

    I just read your interview with Sylvia. I interned at Essence this spring and it was my favorite so far. It's a shame I didn't get to meet you , I like your sense of humour.

    I completely agree with your sentiments about Vixen and other mags that have folded over the years. Suede was so abrupt. I got whiplash because it came and went so fast.

    BTW Essence.com is wonderful and full of life. Well done to you and the team.

    Keep up the good work (Love the blog name) Queen.

    Awww... there really is nothing like female friendships. It took me a long time to learn that, but I get it now.
