Born and raised St. Louis, Mo. on a healthy diet of news programming, pop culture, black history and “snark,” Danielle Belton, daughter of loving “regular folk” and wife of no one, examines the irreverent side of American life.
With two million readers in less than two years, Belton is best known as the editor/writer of the pop culture-meets-politics blog The Black Snob.
Currently Belton is an Associate Editor for The Root. Previously she was Editor-At-Large for Clutch Magazine Online, and in 2012 was the head writer for the late night television show Don’t Sleep hosted by T. J. Holmes on BET.
As an advocate for mental illness, Belton has also blogged about Bipolar Disorder for BP Magazine’s online site. She penned her own profile in BP Magazine summer 2011 and recently wrote about her battle with mental illness for the January 2012 edition of Essence Magazine.
Blacksnob.com has a readership spanning political junkies, journalists, fellow bloggers, political pundits, authors, academics, legislators and political strategists.
Belton currently splits her time between the East Coast and her hometown of St. Louis, Mo. where she maintains her site and works as a social networking/media consultant.
