The Best Stuff I’ve Read This Week: January 5-9, 2009 - Black Enterprise
Black Enterprise Magazine September/October 2018 Issue

One of the things I love most about the Internet and social media is the wide variety of thought-provoking, useful, diverse, fun and innovative things there are to read. (I’ve been addicted to reading since I was four years old. I can quit any time I want to. I just don’t want to.) Some of the things that I find, or are shared with me by friends and associates, are so good that I want to send it to everyone I care about. Of course, I care about all of you who come to, but that would make for an annoyingly cumbersome e-mail address field. So each week, when I find cool stuff (or at least stuff I think is cool), I’ll post it here, so all you have to do is come here each weekend and check it out.

My plan is to post this at the end of every Friday evening. If you like what you read, feel free to share it. In some cases, such as with some content on FaceBook and other social networking sites, you may have to register, sign in or subscribe in order to read my recommendations. Other than that, all you have to do is click the links below and read. Either way, let me know what you think, and feel free to share your own recommendations here so that I and others can check those out, too.
