Thank You BGN Contributors, Partners, & Podcasters

I want to take a moment to extend a Thank You to everyone who has helped build and expand the Black Girl Nerds community.  I birthed the idea of creating this community, however each of you have allowed it to expand and grow and if it were not for your editorial content, suggestions, and podcasting support this community would not be in the space that it is today.

BGN truly is and will always be a community.  I cannot do this alone, and it is because of the magnificent and talented people that represent this site that we are truly building a Blerd Empire!

I want to first thank the regular contributors of BGN who create weekly pieces and put forth a great deal of effort to sustain the blogsite:

Special kudos to Ashlee Blackwell.  Ashlee is the copy editor for BGN and is also a contributing writer.  She has also co-hosted several podcasts and she is the hardest working member of the BGN blogsite and community.  We have also formulated partnerships with various bloggers and media conglomerates that have expedited our growth to which we are incredibly thankful.  I am very grateful to have you be a part of this space!
