Confession time: every year I have a moment where I feel internal crisis.

I can’t help it – I’m a worrier, not a warrior.

Every year there comes a time (maybe more than one time), when I wonder:

Am I doing the best that I can?
Is my blog still as interesting to other people as it is to me?
Have I fallen off? How can I get back up?
When am I gonna get my life together and write this frickin book already?

Black Weblog Awards Winner - Best Culture Blog

Black Weblog Awards Winner - Best Culture Blog

And then the Black Weblog Awards comes around and reassures me – you’re doing alright, Patrice. Maybe better than you thought (but you really need to work on that frickin book)!

This year I was so honored to be nominated, but I honestly didn’t expect to win. So I want to extend my sincere love and gratitude to all of you who took the time out to vote for me. Best Culture Blog THREE years in a row? I must be doing something right.

And I promise you this – Afrobella will only get better!

Some of my friends in the blogosphere won as well, so congratulations and respect to My Brown Baby, Naked With Socks On, Kid Fury, Gangstarr Girl, Mane and Chic, The Fashion Bomb, Black Snob, and Luvvie of Awesomely Luvvie! E hugs all around!

You worry every year...and we get to show you every year that you're the greatest...I'm mystified how you are able to do so much. You're an inspiration to so many; more than you'll ever know.

Hey Bella: You are the best! I voted for you and I'm glad you won. Every time you do something that takes you out of your comfort zone, it forces me to reflect on my life and what I want out of it. Thank you.
