How I Plan to Celebrate World Introvert Day

Last year (week, lol) I came across this article on LinkedIn about world introvert day. I was like what???? Let me check this out. So, I did. And I knew I had to take part in it. Introverts are the most united group on the planet as long as we get to stay home to […]

2018 Word: Acceptance

As I was thinking what my word for 2018 would be I had to really sit and think for a long time. So many people I follow were already sharing their word. And they had great words too. The past several years, well as long as I’ve been blogging, I’ve had a word for the […]

What I Accomplished In 6 Years of Blogging

First of all, why do I care? This is to remind myself when I feel I’m not doing enough that I have done so much already. There’s no need to push myself for appearance sake. My blog resume speaks for itself. The only thing I need to do is what I enjoy doing and that’s […]

Buying Black is Political

A few years ago I read, Our Black Year, by Maggie Anderson. It motivated me to begin to make more conscious decisions where I shop. It pushed me to understand why buying black is political. I also made the decision to bank black as well. As people continue to use hashtags to create movements, my […]

Peace Hunters

Working Through Discomfort – Black Creatives

Pass The Peace Like We Used To Do

If you’re a Martin ( and I mean the TV show) fan then you sang that title like when Mama Payne, her friend and Pam sang this song, lol. Okay let’s get back on topic. As we get ready to enter the holiday season, peace is what people want but often don’t obtain. We do […]

Not Having Children Is NOT Selfish

{WARNING:  Unpopular Opinion ahead which I hope sparks greater conversation about this topic.} So I’m randomly wasting time on Instagram as I do daily (I’m usually seeing what’s trending, news, updates, random funny posts, etc I am a blogger after all and run a blog association. So it’s my job to stay connected.) Anyway, let […]

I Am NOT The Truth Confidant

Why would I title that? Well some people assume that a business name defines who you are. They are so wrong. I talked about that in an episode of my podcast. The Houston African American Bloggers Association is hosting a 30-Day Blog Challenge. And me being the ever so busy one decided not to do […]
