New Blogger On The Block: The SLS

Our new blogger on the block is:

The SLS by Teddy. 

Why did you decide to start blogging?

I was inspired by a journalism camp experience where a staff member at a local newspaper suggested I start a blog of my own. That lead to my first blog where I wrote about my favorite bands, groups, and music I listened to. The blog took off, but since my blog was mainly about Korean pop music, I felt restricted to only one genre of music. My friend, Shineh, found out about my blog and suggested we do one together. So we decided to create a blog that combined both our interest in celebrities and music,and produced The SLS.

What is the promise that you make to people who visit your blog?

We want to promote musical artists on our blog who may not receive the attention that they deserve. We hope by doing so, our reader's will be able to expand their taste in music,while the artists we promote receive more attention to their work.

Who are your blogging inspirations or heroes?

Although I'm not a parent, I subscribe to MyBrownBaby. I love the style and voice that Denene Brown and the other posters give in their posts. The issues that they address in their topics may not be spotlighted in mainstream media, but they are all topics that affect the black community.

The Prophet, owner of Theprophetblog.net, is also another favorite of mine. He talks abut a wide range of music which include American, Japanese, and Korean pop music. I love his bluntness and how crafty he is when writing posts. He also does his research, so his opinions have weight. 

Brothers With No Game is another site that I subscribe to. It's written by four men from the United Kingdom who share their relationship advice and observations to their readers. They use lots of metaphors (comparing love to soccer) and real dialogue in their posts which helps their readers understand their view. Their site shows that that love is something people around the world can relate to.

I also subscribe to many bloggers and YouTube personalities who deal with natural hair. I've been transitioning for a year now and the advice I've received from these bloggers has been very helpful.Although there are many knowledgeable ladies that I could say influence me, I believe the one that inspires me the most is YouTuber Naptural85. I love her hair tutorials, and she give advice on how to tame your curls. Her videos are always professional and informing.
