New AfroSpear Member: Funky Brown Chick


The AfroSpear is a better coaltion of Black bloggers today because of recent addition of Twanna Hines. Twanna is the owner of Funky Brown Chick (BBR #97). Her blog has been up & running since June 2005.

She shared the following background on her blogging career, "In 1995 I taught people how to build websites when I worked as a computing consultant in Los Angeles. We called them 'personal homepages' and 'webjournals' then. Some of my coworkers from back in the day went on to do pretty great things in tech. (My close friend Scott was a VP at Napster during their heyday, and he later launched his own media company.)"

When asked more specifically about The AfroSpear, she wrote, "The purpose of the AfroSpear to collect & disseminate information of interest to and about the African American community. I write about sex, dating and relationships from a funky brown chick's perspective. What's the cliche -- 'You change the world by changing your piece of it.' This is my piece; I'm loving it. Sex and interpersonal relationship politics are an important part of our community."

The AfroSpear just became a more eclectic crew! I invite all villagers to visit Funky Brown Chick and let us know what you think...

I liked her blog. Thanks for the tip. Its good to get away from the gloom and doom without going all the way over to the gossip blogs. Its like girl talk or hanging with your friends. I need to find more blogs like that in the black blogging world.

DN and Symphony - If either of you are on Twitter ... then I'll tell you that Twanna is the best person to follow. She lives a very interesting life and shares it in 140-character byte-size chunks on Twitter...
