I clicked the link and saw that I had been featured in a Clutch magazine article on blogs by black women that don't get the attention they deserve. And the result was, well, a lot of attention -- a spike in readership and new Twitter followers and Facebook fans.

Today is Tuesday which means it's time for me to tell you about some of the folks I follow on Twitter.
