A blog the I read that always forces a belly laugh is Black ‘n Bougie. The author, Michele, is a no-nonsense candid writer who is quite gifted when it comes to the English language. She has four published novels under her belt, and one that’s soon to be released. She’s also Southern and bougie.
Have you ever met someone who could “read” a person, make them feel about 2 inches tall all while speaking calmly in the most lady-like tone and without ever uttering a single curse word? That’s Michele. The only other person I’ve ever known who could do all of that (and do it well) is my mother.
On her blog Michele retells various incidents in her life, as well as posts emails she receives from readers sharing their relationship issues and asking for advice. Her posts have ranged from the down right hilarious (like the Usher-themed wedding she attended), to the jaw dropping (like the reader who’s date pulled a styrofoam container of barbecue ribs and briskit out of her bag at his company’s dinner at the Sr. VP’s house) – umm, yeah. She’s even got themes for some of the craziness, like ITOFTS (I’m Too Old For This Shiggity) and WDDDA (Where Dey Do Dat At).
Now she’s not always about fun and games. When it comes to the serious subject matter, Michele is on point. She will tackle and discuss current affairs and does not shy away from the controversial topics. She’s one of those people who goes ahead and says what most folks are thinking.
