The Best Black Blogs and Websites to Read in 2013

  • Share on Tumblr

As SBM continues to grow, we recognize the importance of networking, collaborating, and highlighting talented bloggers, blogs, and websites from around the web. We wouldn’t be where we are today without the extension of hand-outs and hand-ups. That’s why we strive to counter the ‘crab in a bucket’ mentality; whereby in order for one black website to prosper we have to tear down another. Instead, we’d like to believe there is plenty of cake to go around and we love nothing more than to see everyone in our blogosphere community feasting, happy, and full!

Below is a compilation of blogs and websites from various sources we think you should be reading in 2013. Descriptions provided are from the respective site’s About Us page.

Sex and Relationships

VSBhttp://verysmartbrothas.com/: the present-day manifestation of those lonely shanty nights, where Springer and Riley wrote and argued and theorized for days at a time, burning the midnight oil while ignoring the mad shrieks of the wild warthogs. The Champ and Panama Jackson are here to continue the relationship-related word, to enlight and excite, to enrage and enthrall, but most importantly, to educate and entertain.

What Would a Man Do?http://www.wwmdonline.com/: an edutaining web series that explores how today’s male minds truly feel about the politics of love and lust. Steered by real-life gal pals, Chazeen, Guerdley and Tracy, the sassy trio deliver distinct perspectives while asking the questions fellow females have, in exchange for the bs-free answers guys don’t often share.

Brothers with No Gamehttp://www.brotherswithnogame.com/: BWNG comes full circle as Maverick, Justin Credible, The Yak & Don Kwelu take a look at the “game” from 4 different perspectives. They also have a growing web series you may find interesting.

Still Dating My Spousehttp://www.stilldatingmyspouse.com/: This is a couple that has been married for 13 years but together for 14 years. They have experienced the good, the bad, & the ugly when it comes to marriage; however, they understand how important it is to spend time together.

Black Love and Marriage - http://www.blackloveandmarriage.com/Ayize & Aiyana Ma’at, high school sweethearts, have been together for 18 years and married for 10. Their love and devotion has been an inspiration to many as they demonstrate their commitment to increasing the quality of relationships throughout the world. Because they recognize the need for a rebirth in “sound” relationship dynamics, they’ve created a multifaceted relationship development business that focusses on Life & Relationship Coaching sessions, Pre-marital Counseling, Relationship Education Classes, Creative productions, and the Ask The Ma’at’s “Love and Life” Advice Column.

Seriously Maybehttp://www.seriously-maybe.com/: The blog, Seriously Maybe, takes a look at relationships from the subjective male’s perspective. The authors are true to their opinions, which they un-apologetically express regardless of how inappropriate, unpopular or controversial they may be.

Marriage Exposedhttp://www.marriage-exposed.com/: Roselyn V. Aker- Black, Psy.D is a native of Rome, Georgia and currently resides in the Washington, DC metro area with her husband Frank. Dr. Roz received a B.A. in psychology from Fisk University and completed a doctoral degree in clinical psychology at Argosy University in Washington, DC. Dr. Roz has over 10 years of experience in providing psychological services to children, families, and couples in the nonprofit, government, and private industry sectors.

Black Love Forum - http://blackloveforum.com/: Great website with a wealth of interesting dating and relationship content. We also found this snippet from their website: Relationships in OUR community are in serious crisis. There is a grave breakdown in our connections and communication. It is within our power to ‘pump the brakes’ of discord and bring this train safely to a halt. We invite you to start a new journey with us, that will lead us to a destination of wholesome, healthy and financially sound relationships.

Confessions of a Disillusioned Black Girl - http://www.disillusionedblackgirl.com: Tagline: An honest dialogue about love, life, and everything in-between…

Black Father Connection - http://blackdadconnection.org/: Black Dad Connection was created to impel black fathers and the fathers of black children to take action steps toward living the best, most connected, and longest lives possible for the sake of their children. Black Dad Connection is managed as a program of the national men’s health nonprofit organization, Malecare.

    I'm refering this site on behalf of my girl Milah.
    It's similar to some other relationship blogs, with the exception that it discusses all aspects of finance in relation to relationships. It also discusses personal finance, employment, budgeting, money management, entrepreneurship, the economy, investing and financial planning.
    Great blog to check out and gain knowledge on money matters. Ladies we all know – "no romance without finance." *smile*

    Did anyone else pick up on this story that was largely ignired by the mainstream media?

    "Atlanta Jewish Times publisher resigns over Obama 'assassination' column
    Andrew Adler suggested Israel should assassinate U.S. President Barack Obama to counter Iran’s nuclear weapons program.
    Obama

    Reuters – 19.5.11 U.S.
    By Haaretz
    Published 21:50 23.01.12

    The owner and publisher of the Atlanta Jewish Times, Andrew Adler, who suggested Israel should assassinate U.S. President Barack Obama, has resigned from his post, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency reported on Monday.

    Adler, who has since apologized for his article, listed three options for Israel to counter Iran’s nuclear weapons in an article published in his newspaper last Friday. The first is to launch a pre-emptive strike against Hamas and Hezbollah, the second is to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities and the third is to “give the go-ahead for U.S.-based Mossad agents to take out a president deemed unfriendly to Israel in order for the current vice president to take his place and forcefully dictate that the United States’ policy includes its helping the Jewish state obliterate its enemies.”

    Adler goes on to write: “Yes, you read “three correctly.” Order a hit on a president in order to preserve Israel’s existence. Think about it. If have thought of this Tom-Clancy-type scenario, don’t you think that this almost unfathomable idea has been discussed in Israel’s most inner circles?"

    According to JTA's report, Adler announced Monday that he is “relinquishing all day-to-day activities effective immediately,” and that he named John McCurdy as interim managing editor."
