Links I Love Week 23

On Tuesday, my weekly email launched at my normal time and it shouldn’t have. If I offended anyone by putting out content this week I am truly sorry. Whatever I said or didn’t say would be met with criticism, and I froze. I take every comment seriously and I am a very sensitive person.

What I have learned this week by reading and listening to the community is that we will make mistakes but it is also important to share my voice. I was reminded by some of my readers that I do have a large platform and I need to use it.

I was asked by one of my readers, Alyssa to include links that highlight projects and stories of brown and black Francophiles. I want to do better and be more inclusive, not just this week but going forward. This is where I need YOUR help! If you read a post that you think would be helpful or interesting to this community, I would love to read it and consider it for the weekly roundup. You can email me at [email protected] I would really appreciate this!

  1. Hi Rebecca, my family originally had their coffee in person when we lived nearby, but it was so good that, since moving, we have continued to subscribe to coffee delivery from Alabaster Coffee in Williamsport, PA: Nationally award winning and the best coffee we’ve ever had. I am not affiliated with them at all, just a huge fan and want to support their business. Came to mind after seeing your coffee subscription link. Thanks, Victoria

    • Hi Victoria,

      Thank you so much for sharing! I will look them up 🙂 I am always looking for new beans to try.
