African American Women Celebrating

March is Women’s History Month

I was able to kick it off a little early with an interview by Omar Rashada, host of Community Issues on Comcast Channel 190 which is scheduled to air on March 1st.

Interview of the Delaware Blogger by Omar Rashada on Community Issues on Comcast Channel 190 in Wilmington celebrating Women’s History Month

Not only did Omar once again provide an opportunity for me to talk about blogging but I also a chance to promote my book, “Basic Blogging Tips for Beginners” and my podcast, “Out & About with Antionette”.

Dr. Melissa Knights and I were guests on Community Issues to kick off Women’s History Month

I also had an opportunity to met Dr. Melissa Knights who was the second guest on the show and we met afterwards for lunch at the Metro Diner in Middletown.

Dr. Knight and I were so compatible that we made plans to meet up again next month to work on a Masterclass that will be beneficial to us both, talk about women making history!

In the meantime, this Sunday at Barnes and Noble, I along with 9 African American Female Authors will be participating in a Local Author Showcase book signing which is perfectly timed for Black History Month as we head into Women’s History Month.

If you are local to the Wilmington area, please stop by to sip, shop and get a signed copy of “Basic Blogging Tips for Beginners”.

These are the featured posts from Traffic Jam Weekend #221…

  Kimberly chose Coffee Table Gets a Bronze Leaf Makeover by Unique Creations by Anita. “The transformation that Anita did with this table is stunning! She is very talented.”     Antionette chose Fashion Tips for Women Over 60 by our very own Eclectic Evelyn. “Because it reminded me of my first blog, DeDivahDeals Fashion and Fun after Fifty – dressing for over 60 was a great reminder for me.”     Tracy chose Craft for a Cause: Hope in a Suitcase by Create to Donate. “As a foster mom this post hit me hard. My daughter came to us wearing an old t-shirt and swimsuit bottoms. Not everyone can foster but we can all support those that do!” Evelyn also chose this post. “As [a] person who worked in foster care, I know how important these little things are to the kids. Many states have programs like this and if yours doesn’t maybe you can start one with your church group or as a class project.”     Lisa chose A Sprinkle of Fancy by Ever Ready. “I love Fancy Nancy and the book and show are big hits with my nieces. And this post about Chocolate Pots de Creme is both delicious and pretty. Perfect for a Fancy Nancy tea party.”     Michelle chose Cropped Sarasota Cardi-Free Crochet Pattern by Eye Love Knots. “I’m always amazed when people can crochet clothing. This cardigan is lovely!”     Laurie chose Enneagram Three: You are More Than What You Can Do by Living Our Days. “I found this one very interesting and enlightening.” This post also had the most views.   Thank you featured bloggers for sharing!
