Drumroll please: Tweeps to follow and blogs to read

I recently wrote an article on experiences of ethnic minority women writing online. I started by sharing my own experiences, as an ethnic minority woman, of writing for the Guardian’s Comment is Free. I discussed how I had felt dismissed and ignored based on both my sex and race. I wanted to find out if other ethnic minority women had had similar experiences when writing online.In the process, I came across some excellent writers and blogs – sharing the list here!
