The most crucial aspect of being a blogger is that your voice should shine through the topics you're discussing. Many take to task this venture. Here, horror is the anchor, but our identity as Black women is what keeps us afloat and even sail. I understood just how important that was with one blog essay from this year, "Oh Canada. A Woman Of Colour And Her Perspective On Horror In The Great White North". As a community, we're all fans of horror, but it's our perspectives from the subjective realm that makes our sentiments not only critical, but unique. An author should encourage, entertain, and inspire new ideas to take away. To bring to the table the angle less considered so the media we consume can evolve without losing what made us love it so much in the beginning.
Talking to the horror blogger and author of that essay felt like a step in the right direction to further explore a geographically removed horror community from my own from the voice of a Black woman.
