59 posts later, each done once a week every week for the past year…
Happy 1 Year Anniversary of Fatlace blogging to me!
(Excuse me while I pat myself on the back.)
When I first started doing this, I was self conscious about what I was writing, how I was writing, was it interesting enough, do people even read it, should I post pics of myself, how do I look, etc. etc…and though I still go through these questions weekly I’ve now gotten pretty comfortable – developing my writing style and sharing my private little world. It takes a lot (and I mean A LOT) of discipline to put something together every week. Just ask my dear friends…who have no choice but to deal with the constant hair pulling of “what ish am I pulling out my ass this week?” . The same friends who also say “hole up lemme fix my face” once they see me pull the camera out ha! But I admit…the rewards of doing this are tenfold. I’m less concerned about the vanities and more focused on sharing the simplicities of (my) life. And after each post, I feel a little sense of accomplishment. I just hope that this steady evolving personality of a blog gives my readers a little bit of light every week… just as it does for me.
To quote the words of my #1 favorite book of all time
“Maktub.” (It is written.)”
P.S. For this next year of bloggin’ I’m open to whatever’s thrown my way.
Hit me up if you have events/places/any damn thang you’d want to see blogged about.
Till the next episode.
