When you’re sitting at home and writing every day with only a ratchet tabby cat and the internet for company, sometimes you wind up without perspective. It’s wonderful to be reminded of how what you do can affect the world, and how you are percieved by others.

I say all that to say this — Afrobella.com is listed in the December/January double issue of Ebony magazine as one of their 100 most powerful people of 2011!!!

The issue is on stands now, and Jennifer Hudson is on the cover. You can see my blurb on page 112, right above a lovely photo of the wonderful Mr. Sam Fine, who’s also on the list!

Afrobella Ebony Power 100 List

Who else is on the Ebony Magazine Power 100? Barack and Michelle Obama, Jay-Z, Oprah, Soledad O’Brien, Wyatt Cenac and Bill Duke. Viola Davis, Pharrell, Kanye, Steve Stoute, and Miko and Titi Branch of Miss Jessie’s. How AMAZING is that?? Shoutout to my fellow Power 100 list blog buddies, including Necole Bitchie, Soulbounce, StreetEtiquette.com, The Fashion Bomb, ShadowandAct.com, BlackandMarriedWithKids.com, Bossip, and SingleBlackMale.org! Congrats to all of us!

Thank you to everyone at Ebony, Jet, and Johnson Publishing for recognizing my hard work. This is the best Christmas present EVER!
