The Black Snob has received numerous awards such as BlackPoliticsOnTheWeb.com’s Shining Star in 2008 for Best Overall Political Blog and Best New Political Blog, Best Writing in a Blog (2008 and 2009) and, most recently, the Black Weblog Award for Best Political Blog (2010) . The savvy blogger currently resides in Washington, D.C., where she’s working as a freelance journalist and social media consultant. Belton is currently writing a book about searching for romance while fighting Bipolar Disorder.
