Blogging is more than a hobby, it is also a job. The process of blogging is very time consuming, having to research, advertise, entice, and lay out all of your thoughts and ideas are not easy tasks. The art of blogging goes unnoticed by some, but very appreciated by others. A blogger takes time out of their day to educate and entertain a party of things that they assume the next person may find interesting. With that being said, bloggers take on plenty of topics that can be applicable to all audiences; therefore, it is great to experience the rise of Black Southern Belle bloggers that can talk about things to appeal to a more versatile audience. Hair maintenance, weddings, style, fashion, beauty, business, and food so forth are the topics that light up the hearts of black and southern women in a style that speaks directly to them. With this introduction, below we provide ten of the top Black Southern Belle bloggers.
