My "Blasian Manual For “Some” White Women" was included
I'm sure some people are wondering how can someone who isn't a big time mom blogger... much less someone who even blogs regularly... get that kinda press. Well...it could be my cute smile...no? don't agree?
In truth it all started a few months when I joined the Mommy Bloggers Club . I didn't do anything special, just replied to some discussion, made some new blog friends and tried being an active member of that community. From there I started getting email pitches from PR firms or directly from the company themselves to feature their product. Some I turned down due to lack of time, interest and cause they didn't match me...one firm wanted to send me baby girl stuff...duh, I have a boy!
For the PR firms I've made time to work with it's been great! Yeah, I get to review cool stuff, go to cool events and meet some high profile people but that's not my aim in working with PR firms or directly with major companies. I've come to understand that unless I give a wider voice to the Asian Black / Blasian community I'm representing online... this community will remain hidden to the masses.
There's a saying that you can't see beyond what's in front of you. For the sake of my son and the other black and asian mothers raising blasian children, I have to see beyond my community so that our voice can be hard and our images can be seen.
