That GOOD GOOD Blog's 1 Year Anniversary Herds of the Fathers Giveaway (CLOSED)

On July 14, 2010, I published my very first blog post. There were no photos in the post. No audio snippets. No links to other web pages. I had absolutely no idea what types of posts I was going to be putting on this blog. All I knew was that I had this somewhat odd concept in my head that seemed to define the creative, entrepreneurial, and awe-inspiring revolution that is taking place amongst my peers. Has there ever been a time when so many young people, especially those of color, were indulging themselves so deeply into the diverse cultures of fashion, art, music, and commerce? Everywhere I look, I see someone my age starting a business, building a brand, creating a masterpiece, doing something! My generation is not sitting still; we are out here hustling. Hard. Bearing witness to so much greatness in the making has been such a beautiful and exciting experience for me. However, being able to share the stories of these amazing young people from near and far with all of you has been nothing short of a blessing. I am so lucky to have over 1,000 readers to talk to about the people, places, sights, and sounds that inspire me. I really am. Even on my worst day, I have something to smile about because of this blog. So thank you, to all of you who took a little time out of your day throughout the past year to visit this blog and to leave some love. There aren’t enough words in the dictionary to describe how much I appreciate it.
For this giveaway, I have teamed up with one of my favorite companies that I have had the pleasure of featuring on this blog: Herds of the Fathers (click here to read my interview with Tobi Babajide, half of the Herds of the Fathers duo). A very big thank you goes out to Tobi for reaching out to me and offering to have Herds of the Fathers sponsor this giveaway.

To celebrate That GOOD GOOD Blog's 1 year anniversary, I will be giving away 3 Herds of the Fathers mini backpacks!

3 lucky people will be winning 1 of the 3 styles of mini backpacks from the Herds of the Fathers premiere collection. New mini backpack styles will be offered in the next coming collection!

Herds of the Fathers mini backpacks combine the aesthetic of their classic backpacks with the convenience of a wallet. These bags are perfect for holding keys, cell phones, money, etc. and easily able to be attached to belt loops & bags. Definitely something you want to own!

This giveaway is now closed. The 3 winners will be chosen at random and announced within the next week. Thank you to everyone who entered!


  1. OH, love it! congrats for your anniversary!

    There were several significant changes within the last year for me. I lost my grandmother from cancer December 2010. She was a smoker, and so was I. The night after the funeral was the last time I picked up a cigarette and I haven't looked back, although it was tough! I also decided to go back to school and get my Bachelor's at 30!

    4. Within the past year, I began a blog. I began this blog because I was tired. I was tired of how people saw Africa based on only what they were taught in school and/or what they saw on Tv. 99% of what they knew about Africa was the negative things, I wanted to show people the positive. I want to show people where I(and so many, many people came from). I figured that since as humans weare visual learns, what better way…to show people (even if it’s just a small amount) what Africa is to us. How we see our homes, you know?

    And also, I wanted Africans also to be proud of where we come from…yes we have our negatives, but we have so many positives that even we ourselves fail to notice. I wanted to show people that being African…and the continent of Africa is a beautiful thing, and it’s far beyond what you see in the media.

    & I know it may not seem that big or significant to others, but to me...this is one of my biggest and greatest accomplishments so far.
