I’ve partnered with Ohio. Find it Here. to share this amazing list of Black-owned businesses in Cleveland, Ohio. If you have been following my blog for a while, you will know that I am always talking about supporting local businesses (especially in these crazy Coronavirus times) but today I want to specifically call attention to some of the wonderful black-owned brands and restaurants that we are blessed to have in Northeast Ohio. Many of these are Black female-owned businesses as well, and you know I love a girls supporting girls moment over here!
For a long time, I dreamed of starting a blog. I thought it would be a fun project creatively and that maybe it could turn into a side hustle or even my primary source of income someday. It was something that I thought about for years, but I made excuses for why I couldn’t do it, and I just really didn’t know where to start. It can be very overwhelming when you first begin your to-do list, and that is why I want to help you simplify things! I am going to share the process I used for starting my dream blog, and all of the helpful resources that I have found along the way. Hopefully, I can help eliminate some of your stress and maybe even some of your excuses for not starting a blog of your own! So let’s get going! Here is how to start the blog of your dreams today…
I am always a big advocate of shopping small and supporting local businesses, but especially during this COVID-19 pandemic where businesses have been forced to close their doors to the public. During these uncertain times, we must rally together to support our local favorite coffee shops, boutiques, and restaurants as much as we can. Today, I want to talk about supporting your local book stores!
During this bizarre time in history that we are living through, it can be hard to remember what day it is, let alone get dressed up to work from home. People and businesses are struggling to get by. We are all worried about the health of our loved ones. We are all just trying to take this day by day as it comes. Something that has been helping me get through this time is seeing how my community is coming together to support one another despite the physical distance. People are buying gift cards and ordering takeout from local restaurants and shopping online at their favorite local shops.
We are living in crazy times right now. I am sure this is not how most of us envisioned our 2020 would be, but COVID-19 has hit the world hard and we are all adjusting to a new (and hopefully very temporary!) normal as we all stay home and fight the spread of this virus. While none of us would choose this “Shelter In Place” life, it is our current reality and I hope you are all keeping a positive outlook during these circumstances. I have been social distancing for 2 weeks and self quarantined for 1 week now and I am at the point where I need some more things to keep me occupied. Here is what I found interesting while researching free things to do at home during our Coronavirus lockdown.
