Drop It Like It's Hot

Hello everyone, thanks for another great week of conversation. If you would like to participate more fully in the Womanist Musings community and would like the opportunity to guest post, please send an e-mail to womanistmusings (at) gmail (dot)com, including either an original piece, or a link to your blog.  Please include a three line bio, and one image that represents you. Guest posts round out the conversation here, because they allow us to discuss topics that I am either not well versed enough to discuss, and they provide a unique opinion.

Below you will find links to blog 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.
