Black History Month is among our favorite times of the year on Beyond Bylines.
Last week, we looked at how to enhance your race and culture beat with new story ideas that reach beyond this month-long celebration.
This week, we’re looking at some great African-American blogs.
Bernetta Style motivates “wives and mothers to dream big daily.”
Bernetta is a lifestyle motivational blogger and certified life coach, who hails from the Midwest and earned her Bachelor’s degree in marketing from Alabama State University.
“The Bernetta Style blog is a resource on motherhood (family), marriage and motivating people towards their dreams one day at a time,” the blog says. “That includes fitness, keeping yourself up, natural hair, family events, date nights and reviews (events & products).”
Some of my favorite posts on this site include 9 Products I Love to Use on My 40-Year-Old Skin, 2016 Goodbye Amazing 30s | 2017 Goal Crushing 40s, and 5 African-American Child Entrepreneurs to Watch (Wow. Just, wow.).

City Girl Goes Digital aims to help “you navigate the noise.”
Keisha is the blogger behind City Girl Goes Digital, and she covers digital life, things for the home, and has a guide to cars.
3. Honey + Lime
Honey + Lime is a travel, family, and lifestyle blog in California.
It features posts about food and drink, DIY crafts, home, kids and family, parties and events, style and beauty, and healthy living. Honey + Lime is written and managed by Deanna Underwood, a hardworking, travel-loving millennial mom of two.
I really enjoyed A New Year House Cleaning Resolution That I Can Keep, SoCal Road Trip: 8 Family Friendly Activities in Camarillo, CA You’ll Love, and 25 Fun New Year’s Eve Party Ideas for Kids You’ve Never Thought Of.
