Well, I did something useful today. I created a Google “custom search engine.”
Look over in the right-hand column, where it says “Search the Black Blogosphere.” I got more than 90 websites loaded up in that bad boy, covering everything from music and movies to current events.
Actually, I’m not sure how useful that’ll be to anybody. But say you read something – like about Buddy Miles – and you go, “I wonder what the rest of the black blogosphere is saying?” Search for “Buddy Miles,” and you’ll see.
Or maybe you want a quick handle on what folks think of the new Erykah Badu album. Just search for “New Amerykah.” It’s that damn easy.
So give it a test drive, why don’t you? Search for something silly, like “fried chicken” or “big booties.” Or, on the serious side, “Farrakhan” and “Obama.”
Whatever. It’s there if you wanna use it.
