Moving On The Wires: My First Blog Nomination!

18 Jun

I received a nomination for the Kreativ Blogger Award! Thank you to Balogun from Chronicles of Harriet. Check him out! He is a speculative fiction author, including works of steampunk and Swords and Soul genres, and he blogs about various speculative fiction cultures.

As per the Kreativ Blogger Award rules I must:

  1. Thank my nominator and provide a link to their blog.
  2. List seven things that readers might find interesting about me.
  3. Nominate seven other bloggers.

Seven things about me that readers might find interesting

  1. I have traveled to both Japan and London
  2. I write poetry and I plan to eventually publish my poetry collection that I wrote in my Journalism/Creative Writing capstone class.
  3. I am still socially awkward. I am working on that. LOL!
  4. I wrote a thesis on percussion in hip-hop and how it forms the basis of the music, social organizing and philosophy of not just hip-hop culture, but many cultures in the African diaspora. I plan to publish this too.
  5. I am only 21 years old. I know, shocking!
  6. My guilty pleasure show is Degrassi.
  7. I started this blog over a year ago as a final assignment in my blogging class.

Here are seven blogs I subscribe to and I am nominating for the Kreativ Blogger Award (and there are several other great blogs I follow that I love, but sadly I could only picked seven):

  1. The Adventures of Cosmic Yoruba and Her Flying Machines – She is a Yoruban woman who describes herself as “weird” and blogs about her “weird” interests, like speculative fiction, k-pop, and African histories.
  2. The Afrofuturist Affair – It is a community formed to celebrate, strengthen, and promote Afrofuturistic and Black Scifi culture through creative events and creative writing. (They will be announcing their website launch this Saturday.)
  3. AstroMytholosophy – She uses myth, science fiction and afrofuturism to explore the world around her.
  4. Chronicles of Harriet – Look above
  5. New Black Man (in Exile) – The Duke University professor is an who blogs about various aspects of Black cultures and issues concerning Black communities.
  6. Abagond – He blogs about social issues like racism, histories of the African diaspora and whatever else he chooses.
  7. Live Unchained – Arts and media initiative helping to unite women of the African diaspora and also to creatively free them of the chains that bind them.

    Congratulations to your nomination, Sherese! It’s well deserved…
    They teach blogging in classes now?!? – Weird…
    And, yeah, it *is* quite shocking that you are only 21 years old; what a great talent you have!

      Thank you! Yeah, it was the first blog class at Baruch College in the spring of 2011. I liked it a lot. As for my age, it’s funny, some people who meet me think I look like high schooler, but I act much older than my age. Maybe I have an old soul.
