She Thrives, a blogger network created by African-American women, offers a difference

(June 4, 2013) In what its founders say is the first venture of its kind, six African-American women have launched the SheThrives Network. It is a blogger network that will build, pool and share in resources, content, audience and revenue opportunities, while fostering community among a diverse and forward-thinking female audience on a single platform.

Christelyn Karazin, creator of the widely popular online women's publication Beyond Black & White, worked to develop the concept of a share-information network with colleagues Jenn M. Jackson (Water Cooler Convos), TerriAnn McDonald (Eat. Flow. Sweat.), Gennifer Miller Dornstreich (Healthy Textures), Vanisha Sapp (African Export) and Jamie Broadnax (Black Girl Nerds) to bring compelling content in the area of politics, relationships, travel, health and healthy living, beauty, style, news, trends and women's issues to be delivered in both quality and quantity.

The African-American female market continues to be an underserved demographic despite the tremendous buying power of black women, who are more educated, more career-focused and more ambitious than at any other time in history.

"Black women are not a one-size-fits-all commodity. Much of the media offerings that target black women assume we all think, feel, love, and live the same. This has created a vacuum, especially for black women between the ages of 18-45," says Karazin, SheThrives President.

The SheThrives network serves the interests of the new, liberated, global-minded and socially savvy Black woman, who is determined to find her own happiness, discover her inner and outer beauty, and live life on no one's terms except her own. She's making decisions about what's best for her body, soul, mind and life.

The opportunity for advertising programs and partnerships with the network is intuitive. Companies will know exactly whom they are speaking to. Campaigns can be designed and tailored for the network at large which reaches over 1,000,000 page views monthly and also in "boutique fashion," with tailored reviews on individual blogs and touting programs on social networks like Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook.
