Houston African American Bloggers (htxaab) is a blogging community for bloggers of color in the Houston area. I first learned about the Facebook group at an entrepreneur luncheon I hosted earlier this year.
I joined HTXAAB to meet and connect with bloggers from my community. I've attended many blogging events in the city of Houston and there has definitely been a lack of diversity. HTXAAB fills a void for bloggers of color to not only have a place to go for support and resources but also for brands looking for a more diverse group influencers.
I think it's important to belong to a community of like-minded individuals who can not only relate to the specific struggles of blogging, as part of a particular demographic, but who can also serve as inspiration to motivate and encourage you on your journey!
