I have had this blog for a while. I mainly use the account for following other blogs. Over the past few weeks I have been trying to convince myself to write something everyday. I just didn’t know where to focus my considerable talents and skills. By being such a Renaissance woman, I was having a hard time narrowing my focus. I partake of a variety of arts and crafts, should that be my focus? Well there is a glut of craft blogs. I am a mother of seven people ranging from adults to a toddler. Should family life be my focus? Not when there are so many great blogs about families. Should I focus on health and beauty for Black women? How about cooking? I mean these are all topics that affect and interest me. I just couldn’t figure out who should be my target demographic. Then it hit me, (have you ever been mugged by your own thoughts? I have and that shit hurts), I am not an ad agency. I am not doing this to create revenue nor do I have to answer to sponsors. I can write whatever the hell I want. I am only limited by my desires, passions, and imagination. It was like a breath of fresh air after surfacing from deep sea diving. (Not that I would actually know because the nature shows do all of the diving for me.) Once I “got” that my blog should be just like my life, I felt better. I knew that I was free to release all of my thoughts. I knew that one day I could talk about politics and the next I could talk about the joys of changing crap filled two year old underwear. I knew that my grammar and spelling did not have to be perfect. I knew that I could write in the manner that I speak and think. I knew that this was one place to indulge my megalomania and Goddess complex. I can talk about art, religion, sex, or chocolate and no one could tell me to shut up. (Not that many do IRL cause I am so gansta witit.)
Now you may be asking yourself, “Self, what in the hell does all of this gibberish have to do with me?” Nothing. Except if you hang around I hope to engage, entertain, and enlighten you. I know I will eventually piss you off. I hope to make you laugh either with or at me. I hope to be a positive impact on the world we share. If not, oh well I tried. So sit back, buckle up, and let’s hit the road.
