Ebony/Jet Names My Blog, Light-skinned-ed Girl Week's Favorite

Heidi DurrowI was honored that EbonyJet.com chose my blog, Light-skinned-ed Girl, as the Favorite Blog of the Week on Sept. 18, 2009.

I started blogging in 2006 with the tagline: "a mixed chick's mixed thoughts on a mixed-up world."

I blog about biracial identity, the vagaries of race, and the Mixed experience—the whole "biracial thing."  I also blog about the creative life—inspirations and disappointments—and travel.

Some of my favorite posts include my month-long series started in 2007 called "Mixed Experience History Month."  Each May, I profile historical figures--innovators, artists, politicians, writers, etc.—who are mixed-race like August Wilson, Nella Larsen, and Isamu Noguchi.

I also blog about my writing process and about this wonderful journey I'm on now as I go from being an unpublished to published novelist (Feb 2010!--whoo-hoo).  And I blog about my adventures, struggles, and obsessions.

In 2008, I blogged every single day for the calendar year.  Now I post about two or three times a week--it's where you'll find what's really on my mind (and maybe it's on yours too).

Thanks to everyone who has checked out my musings.  I hope you'll keep reading.
