I’m new to blogging and I decided to proceed with the website after encouragement from a few friends and my Mother. Yes, Mother has a capital M because that’s her name LOL.
I’m calling this blog “In the Black” as a double entendre; Black is my last name, and “In the Black”, in financial terms, typically refers to an organization’s profitability whereas, in the red would refer to negative earnings or debt. I haven’t heard a person say “I want to be financially stressed,” so let’s take a trip to the black side of scale. The word “Black” also emphasizes my intent to promote financial literacy to people of color.
I’ll be sharing stories about why I decided to purchase generic vs name-brand and basic financial literacy tips that everyone should know. “My people suffer for a lack of knowledge” so I’m hoping that I’ll be able to bridge the gap for someone. If one person benefits from this blog, then my mission is accomplished.
I’m new to managing a website, so please be patient with me and send me feedback on how to improve things such as formatting. I also welcome topics that you’d like me to comment on and I’ll start a podcast if this blog is successful.
