Drop It Like It's Hot

Hey everyone, due to the fact that I forgot to post last week's drop it like it's hot, this week's list is bit long -- but I promise they are all good reads.

I would like to take the time to thank all those who guest posted on the blog this week.  Your contributions help to make Womanist Musings a challenging space, where we can have the conversations that others avoid.  We have a tough little community here, but I am proud that we are all learning together.  If you would like to participate as a guest poster, please feel free to send either your original work, or a link back to your blog to [womanistmusings (at)]  Please include a small three line bio, and an image that you would like associated with your work.

I am still tinkering with the layout. I am having some difficulty getting the font and spacing to level out, but I am working on it. As I promised, I finally have a partial feed in my RSS for those that wish to keep up with Womanist Musings that way. If you are having any problems with the new template, or would like to suggest changes please do so in the comment section.

As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, there are some great links below.  Please take the time to show these bloggers some love and when you are done, don't forget to drop it like it's hot and leave your link behind in the comment section.
