Yesterday my editor from Velvet Park e-mailed me to let me know that the pieces I’m writing for them have gained some attention. The article written on Theology Degrees Online note that my blog for Velvet Park is one of 50 Very Insightful Blogs on LGBTQ Spirituality. The author writes of my blog, “Black, Jewish lesbians are something of a rarity, but Erika Davis possesses the inspiring intelligence to accept who she is and press on with courage, faith and spunk.”
Last week, a Jewish Online Newspaper, who will remain anonymous for now, inquired about my blog and wondered if I’d be interested in writing for them. I of course said that I would be delighted. In actuality I screamed and terrified my cat and my neighbors. I’m just waiting to hear their response. Tomorrow I’m giving my talk at Be’chol Lashon and although I’m still very nervous I’m feeling very confident and blessed by this outreach towards me, my work, my life, and my writing.
So thank you, to all of you who continue to read my blog. Thank you for telling your friends and spreading the word. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
