    Hi BSB! I was informed by a mutual associate of ours, Brittney Oliver, about the potential opportunity to contribute for your blog. I was surfing your website and love your content. Right now, I am an editor for a lifestyle blog, but am always looking for opportunities to write different and unique content. I just wanted to formally ask about that, and see if/how that would be possible. Please let me know at your earliest convenience – I look forward to hearing from you!

    Hello,

    A friend (Hey, Ash!) referred me to your site and suggested I send you info for a feature. [But first, let me say I absolutely LOVE what you’re doing. Either way, you just gained a fan! :)] My sister & I lost our mother in 2013 and last year we launched a nonprofit support group called Surviving Daughters for young women, like us, who in their teens or twenties, have lost their mothers. We are trying to gain connections to every Surviving Daughter that we can to promote encouragement & love! We’d be elated to be featured!

    Hello!!

    This is Danielle from TUFT (tuft_diymckim)! I am so thrilled to talk about doing a feature and what that would entail. I would also like to get information about advertising through your AMAZING site! Black Souther Belle is a true unique gem and I’m very excited to have connected with you! I am very inspired by your business, I’m coming up on one year at Tuft and there is so much I want to accomplish swinging into year 2 and I think having references like BSB is a step in the right direction.

    I very much look forward to speaking, have a wonderful week!

    Hello Southern Ladies!

    I recently discovered your site via social media and was really surprised. I wanted to let you know that I am a Southern Belle. My organization the Alabama A&M Univeristy Southern Belles or otherwise known as the AAMU Southern Belles. We are the first Historically Black University to have an established group of Southern Belles. Myself and three beautiful, intelligent young ladies by the names of Brittney, Ashley, and Destiny charted our organization from the University of South Alabama. Now an alumnus of the university I never thought we would have grown into such a successful dynamic group of women. I would love to share with you more about us and how we serve the university and the community.
