A Wedding Star Streaks Into The Blogosphere

Share Article

The popular wedding-planning website, African-AmericanBrides.com has been racking up accolades since it first arrived on the scene in 2004. Now it's making waves with a splashy new blog.

Lively message boards. Lush photo galleries. Fabulous features. African-AmericanBrides.com has all those things. But that isn't enough for the website's publisher. She has just announced that she's launching her site into the blogosphere. "This blog really is the feather in our cap," says owner Erica Thompson Briggs.

The former broadcast news producer describes her website's new blog as an up-to-the-minute source of trends, style news and opinion. "You know, I'm a journalist by trade. It was clear to me that if I were going to do a blog it would have to meet high standards."    Writers are constantly updating the blog with new trends, opinions, and pictures. If ever there was a blog that could be considered "glossy", this is it.

The "digital diva" is already patched into cutting-edge industry news through well-informed internet sources. But Briggs has also tapped select wedding experts and guest bloggers to help her pen the blog. With so much talent on hand, the blog frequently delves into much more than weddings. It also explores issues surrounding marriage, motherhood, and news affecting women-of-color.

The African-American Brides Blog may be found at: http://blog.african-americanbrides.com . Readers may also access the blog from the website's homepage at: http://www.african-americanbrides.com .

Briggs' advice to other women considering starting websites, blogs or online magazines is simple. "Honestly? Do YOU and do something new. I've been successful by sticking to my own vision. In every new venture connected to my website, I strive to give African-American women something fresh, lovely and upscale. My readers have returned the favor by being loyal to me."

When asked if she has any other projects in the works, Briggs says "Well, yes! Of course there are. Always. But, you'll have to keep an eye on our blog for all the details."

Erica Thompson Briggs is a public relations professional in the Washington, D.C. area. She publishes African-AmericanBrides.com, AfricanAmericanWeddingShop.com and AfricanAmericanWeddingHairstyles.blogspot.com.
