Her name, or rather her blog rings a bell–whether you log on daily (like I do) or not. You’re probably on Necole Bitchie right now. Necole Kane is the blogstress behind the ever-popular urban entertainment hub that somehow manages to uplift and support rather than degrade and humiliate Hollywood’s heavyweights. Many blogs find the ridiculing style of journalism to be the most sensational, but Necole counts on straight up reporting in a timely manner for her success. She pulls in numbers that your favorite site would envy.
But it hasn’t always been a rose-colored road to success for Necole. In 2007, she did what a lot of us do–packed up and moved to New York, searching for her piece of the American Dream. Gaining more frustration than fruit to her labor, Necole decided she would never send out another resume again because she’d heard nothing but doors slam in her face. With both parents deceased and her aunt growing weary of her sitting at home on the internet without searching for work, Necole was kicked out of her aunt’s home and forced to make her site, NecoleBitchie.com, her main source of income. The rest…is internet history.
Necole’s site became one of the leading and fastest growing urban gossip sites on the internet, boasting accolades from publications like The Huffington Post, CNN, The Boston Globe, Global Grind, VIBE, XXL and receiving prestigious awards like Black Enterprise’s Black Blogger of the Month, Soul Train Music Award For Best Soul Site, Judges Vote for the Black Weblog Awards Best Gossip Blog, Ebony magazine’s Power 100, being the first blogger to appear on BET’s 106th and Park, all while being featured in Sister 2 Sister, The Source, Honey, Essence, J’Adore, Rolling Out and more.
