Drop It Like It's Hot

Hello everyone.  Thanks for another great week of conversation.  Things finally seem to be back on schedule and barring an unforeseen disaster, posting will be at a regular pace.  Thank you all for welcoming JuJube this week as our newest contributor.  Hopefully, next week I will be able to announce another new contributor joining the blog as well.  When Womanist Musings first started, it was just me typing out my observations with the occasional bit of snark thrown in for seasoning.  As the blog has grown and transformed, I became more committed to ensuring that it was a truly intersectional place. I want everyone who regularly reads, to see at least one post a week that deals with their issues.  This isn't always easy, because though I try to be aware and get my 101 on, I have a lot to learn.  Our contributors help to broaden the conversations that happen here and I am so thankful that we have become a little blogging family.

For those of you that would like contirbute more informally, Womanist Musings still has an open guest posting policy.  Just send in a link to your blog or your original work via e-mail to womanistmusings (at) gmail (dot) com.  Please include a three line bio and an image that you would like associated with your work.

Below you will find a list of posts that I found interesting this week. Please show these bloggers some love and check them out.  When you are done, don't forget to drop it like it's hot and leave your link behind in the comment section.
