My “Flyy Girl” Feature!

Yay! Audrey of Hey Girl Hey reached out about featuring me on her blog as part of her “Flyy Girl cropped-Peace.jpgFriday” series. I was obviously flattered and eagerly agreed to participate. Answering her questions allowed me to revisit the reasons I created this blog and reminded me why I shouldn’t shy away from it, even though I’ve found myself leaning that way lately.

You can read my feature at this link. Feel free to comment!

How Having a Supportive Community Helped Me as a Blogger

There’s one thing – barring extraordinary circumstances – I absolutely must have in order to create. SupportThat one thing is solitude.

Although I love being alone, it’s fulfilling when I realize that once I’ve poured my words onto the page for public consumption, someone other than me is engaging with the content I produce.

Here are three ways having a supportive community has helped me as a blogger.

Goals for the Week of Jan. 26

Happy last week of January! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Saturday was my wash day, which took THREE HOURS (*rolls eyes*); Sunday I did some housework and played around with my new Pinterest account.

Here’s what I’m planning on getting done this week: 

1. Carve out a posting schedule.Weekly Goals

One of the major things I need to work on – which I mentioned during the inaugural Brown Girl Bloggers Twitter chat – is being more consistent as blogger. I usually post on Sundays and/or Mondays so I have to figure out one or two more days that work best for my schedule and stick to them as closely as possible.

2. Continue reading ‘The Quiet Guides.’

Last week I purchased GG Renee Hill’s e-book series “The Quiet Guides” and I wish I had it in my life much sooner! I have some self-discovery work to do and now I have the perfect resources at my disposal in these books.

3. Work out at least three times.

Consistency is probably going to end up being my word for 2015. I’m trying to make exercise a part of my lifestyle (#LeStruggle) so I have to push through the lazy and drag myself to the gym after work three times this week, and every week moving forward.

What are you up to this week?

Confessions of a New Brown Girl Blogger

I’m just shy of tScreen Shot 2014-12-30 at 7.17.26 PMwo months into blogging, but I have learned several lessons and can already tell I have much more to learn. While I didn’t decide to create a blog as a path to fame or fortune – but as an outlet and a way to connect with others who could relate to my personal experiences – I’ll admit my expectations may have been a bit outrageous at times.
