Blogging is known in many forms; a creative outlet, business, book foundation, news source, or all the above. When you're putting love into it, the hard work alone is rewarding, its lasting impact, astounding. In the spirit of creating a consistent brand in the most do-it-yourself way possible, having a blog means you're thinking on your toes even when you're sleeping.
The online horror community fits right in to these sentiments. And while those engaged know where to go for their news, I'm not confident that the majority are aware that women of color are building their own body of meaningful work to add to the variety of perspectives horror has always thrived upon. Below are five older and newer Black women horror bloggers out there to cape for.
Angela Harris (The Overthinker) is probably one of my favorite, new bloggers on the block. Overthinking Horror Films offers brief, fun snapshots of some of her favorite horror films with observations that invite horror novices to consider technical aspects of filmmaking that the genre has defined. You can also find film reviews and cases that may affirm or reject ideas you may have had about a macabre tale. Angela believes that "horror can offer viewers great insight to human nature, a different way of thinking about things, and a deeper understanding of cultural trends."
