Drop It Like It’s Hot

Hello everyone, thanks for another great week of conversation.  Now that March break is over, I will return to a normal posting schedule.  I want to say thanks to those of you who took the time to e-mail me stories of interest.   I also want to take the time to remind everyone that Womanist Musings has an open guest posting policy, and therefore; if you are interested in participating, please send me either a link to your work, or an original piece via e-mail.

The Womanist Musings podcast is taking a break this week because Monica is away giving a speech, but it should return to its regular schedule soon.  In the meantime, you will find links to a few posts that I found interesting this week below.  Please be aware that I did not read the comment sections of this articles, so read them at your own risk.  When you are done showing these bloggers some love, please don’t forget to drop it like it’s hot and leave your link behind in the comment section.
