BGG Featured on Style31 Mag!

Today I am so honored to be featured on!

Launched earlier this year, the site is dedicated to the encouragement of faith-centered women and is a reliable media source on the subjects of relationships, fashion, beauty, travel, health and business. The name “Style 31″stems from Proverbs 31, which focuses on Christian women’s ministries.

The day I got the request for an interview I was debating whether or not I should continue BGG. I took the extremely timely email from Style31’s editor as a form of confirmation that I should not give up. Like many women, I struggle  with not giving myself enough credit and falling into the trap of comparing myself to others (in my case to other bloggers). I’ve since come to the realization that there is only one Brown Girl Gumbo and I can’t be anyone else!

That said, please check out the Q&A and bookmark Style31:


In this day of social media, do you ever fall into the trap of comparing yourself to others?


  1. BGG I don’t ever compare myself to others. It wouldn’t be fair to them 🙂 JK…what I really want to say thank goodness you didn’t give up. I LOVE BGG!!

      I try not to, but in this blogging industry it’s hard not to fall into that trap. I have made a conscious decision to STOP doing it because you never know what someone else’s journey is And, like I said in the post, there’s only ONE me so need to compare! Thanks for supporting!! 🙂

  2. Congrats on your feature. Blogging is tough and many others have shared your feelings. Stay encouraged.

  3. Congratulations! I love your blog. The simple design and colors and the straight forward information separate you blog from others. Keep it up. We all readers do appreciate.
