I’m honored to to spotlight My Fabulous Five Bloggers.  Now let me say before some of my Spinkys throw some darts at me, these are ONLY five of the bloggers who I consider to be fabulous.  I could only choose five today but I got you next time.

First off I have the fabulous Teri.  Teri blogs at BrownGirl Speaks and she is my homegirl.

Her 'Don't you wish you were me' pose

Teri is the reason that I started blogging.  Before I started blogging I would read her blog and we would talk on and on about books  and books and books.  After much encouragement and coaching from Teri I finally stepped in the water.  I’m officially sprung and loving it.  Not only is she one of my fabulous homegirls in real life but I also get to go over to her house and do the dougie.  LOL!  But seriously, Teri is the bestest and she’s the mastermind behind the name, Notorious Spinks.  Umm Terri and why did you start calling me Notorious Spinks anyway?  Shhhhhh!  Don’t tell anyone…

Then there’s my Shydel.  Yes you read it right, my Shydel.  Shydel is fabulous, he’s real peeps, his swagger is impeccable and I just love when he calls me Spinksy Boo. LOL!

Shydel is the HNIC over at The Urbane Urbanite.  I ran into Shydel while we were both chatting it up with author Aliyah King on Twitter and then we started tweeting each other.  We’ve moved up to Google chat now.  Now I just need to hurry up and get to NYC so we can get our Sangria on.

Next up I have Shannon over at Reading Has Purpose.  I’m not sure how our paths crossed but I just love her.

Reading has Purpose

Such a cutie pie

Shannon is fabulous because she’s supportive and she finds all the good books.  As a blogger it’s so easy to get wrapped up in our own blogs but she always makes time to stop by my crib.  I also love her book reviews.  She finds the greatest books to review and I end up adding most of them to my to-be-read list.

Another fabulous blogger is Kim.  Kim has two blogs, Kinky Curly Ebony Belle and The Girl from Dumfries in Japan.

Kodak smile

I love stopping by her blog to read about her latest adventures as a woman of color with natural hair living in Japan.  I especially love the recipes and dishes that she shares on her blog.  I’ve always wanted to travel abroad so when I get to Japan she’ll be my first stop.

Last, there’s The Cubicle Chick aka the fabulous Dani.  I met her via Twitter and we’ve chatted it up ever since.

Million dollar smile

Dani is a stay-at-home mom and a full-time blogger.  I got to meet and hang out with her last June when we attended Blogging While Brown and she was a delight to be around.  Her blog is also one of the best and she puts hard work and dedication into making her blog a fabulous place.

Well Spinkys these are five of my fabulous blogger friends.  Make sure you stop by their cribs and tell them Hi.  You will be glad you did!

Now share with us a few of the bloggers who you think are fabulous and why.
