I spoke to this in a previous post here.
For the longest time (and more than a few failed attempts), I have wanted to create a space where a small group of women like me could exchange information, advice and experiences.
More than ever and with the present pandemic situation, I think that this kind of space is important and a few of my peers agree so in the coming weeks, we will look into developing something “limited” and small as a network for women like us.
These peers and I are all busy and in different time zones but we have common and varied interests. We exchange throughout the day on a private chat that is often funny, sometimes very serious but is always interesting and thought that maybe others would like a similar space to chat.
Yes, there are many spaces online that already exist but not only is there sometimes a hefty cost but I personally find that the focus of a lot of these groups is often geared for women under 40 and/or more superficial-type topics.
But that’s just my opinion…
So here is my question to you:
Would you like to join a small online group of women who are approaching 40 and beyond interested in exchanging and sharing privately about life experiences, having brave and honest conversations while living a melanated life?
And by private, we mean that your posts/comments would only be seen by those in the group.
Note: I have been tasked with testing out a group chat app, GroupMe, with a very limited number of ladies for a few weeks to see how the app will work. If you are interested in “chatting” with us during our app test period, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org with “Chat” in the Subject line, your email address and your pseudonym if you would like to use a different name.
