Drop It Like It's Hot

Hello everyone, thanks again for all of the kind condolence messages this week, and thanks to all of you who donated.  My entire family had been very touched by the wonderful outpouring of support. This has been a very tough week for me and I am still not operating at my best.  Posting may continue to be a little light for awhile, until I get my bearings again. On that note, now would be a really great time to take advantage of the open guest posting policy here at Womanist Musings.  Please send along a 3 line bio, an image that you would like associated with your work and a link to your blog or original work via e-mail to womanistmusings (at)  We are going to have to work together to keep the conversation rolling around here.

Because I didn't do a link round up last week, this one is a bit long; however, I promise they all lead to really great posts.  Please don't be shy about showing 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.
