Sooooooo silly me! I have been going through some serious life changes and been too tired to blog.

Until I decided to stop being lazy today!!!

And it just so happens to be my blogiversary!!

(Thank you giphy)

I started this blog in 2015 so it can motivate me to stay active in my writing and get back into writing these books I keep claiming I am working on, yet I don’t have the time because work or some other life event I feel gets in my way.

Over time I have made such beautiful friends and read some amazing blogs!

I have lost touch with a lot of my favorite blogs because I have been so busy with life! Ugh! I made a promise to myself to get back into gear and catch up with my reader on WP of those that I adore and NEW followers as well!

πŸ™‚

I LOVE writing! It is apart of me. Always has been from when I was a kid.

Now, I will give credit for this post to my girl …

Authenticitee Speaks

for her blogiversary post!! Here is her post- “On My Word* Celebrating 3 Years of Blogging” Her post made me think about how I NEVER wrote a celebratory post of my own!

She is one of my FAV bloggers! Not only does she keep it real, especially about her love for her family but her poems are so dope! Check my girl out! πŸ˜‰

My 1st post to WP ever was:

https://shadebutnoshade.wordpress.com/2015/01/25/hello-world/

Soooo basic right!? πŸ˜€

Then on the 29th of January, I posted about “Dear White People”

I didn’t know what to expect when I opened my WP and created my theme, started my topics and added my humor on top of rants and honesty.

I didn’t think people would follow me!!

I didn’t think what I talked about was readable! I thought no one would want to read about what I have to say or

that they would take my blog for a joke because of the title. I had put a lot of love into this blog the 1st year and a little of the second year. Afterwards, I let my writing become the “If I can get to it” Instead of what it always was which was
I have to post on Sunday & Thursday.” Nothing stopped me before.

Now in 2018 I have accumulated one little hater….maybe 2 if you count the other….

Sooo here is my little shade towards that person….

Here’s to the gov lady that I hope FOLLOWED my blog after finding out HER BF wasn’t who he said he was! And I hope that second person peeps in every now and then to see if they are being talked about! πŸ˜‰

As I realized people wanted to know what I was going to post next, I opened up more about my personal life. So not only do I post about lifestyle, love and relationships in general; but I post about my own journey which includes my college education.

I personally want to dibble back into college memories and posting about the general because I have more fun venting ;P.

I evolved as a person and my posts have become serious at times because certain things bother me. I KNOW I am not alone though!!

With this, I say here is to happy blogging and I will be blogging as well! Keeping this blog strong!

Here is a shoutout to my favorite bloggers besides my girl E mentioned above!

    • Thank you!! πŸ™‚

      Yeah I know and I am just a small number. 3 is nothing compared to those who have 5 years, 10 years and 20.

      It took hard work and I am still attempting to stay active. Appreciate it! πŸ™‚
