45655 10150267351705445 527825444 14616789 5696849 n 7 black UK blogs to bookmarkSometimes blogging makes me want to pull out my hair.

I subscribe to some social media blogs and by no means do I follow their blogging advice religiously but sometimes a recommendation catches your eye, like the other day when I read that every self-respecting blog should have a featured posts box.

It made sense, and I figured that it should be pretty straight-forward to set up and started a search for ways to incorporate this into my site. In all likelihood there is a quick simple way to do it, but after two hours of searching and installing and placing code on my site I concluded that the untidy mess that you can see in the top right will have to do. I mean seriously… The main thing is that you can click on my favourite posts right?

Another thing social media blogs are full of is ideas for blogging topics. I tend to skip those posts as my problem is never ideas, of which I have in abundance, but time to write them. I think that if you are struggling for ideas to blog about then you shouldn’t blog. I’m not suggesting that a post might not just be simple; an image or a quote etc. but it should feel authentic. Personally, I don’t like reading blogposts that seem to exist for the sole purpose of attracting traffic to a site.

Anyway, that’s beyond the point! The point with this post is I’d like to share some fantastic black UK blogs that I think are worth bookmarking. If you are a reader based on the other side of the pond, hope you find it interesting to check out some of the black blogs over here. And for those in the UK, please feel free to add other UK black blogs (including yours) in the comments section. I’d love to find out about more black UK blogs.
