700 Posts and 6 Years Later: It’s My Blogversary!

I’m Speaking at BlogHer with Issa Rae, Chescaleigh and Dr. Goddess!

This week, I’m headed to New York City to speak at BlogHer 2012, and I’m super excited! This is my second time and I’m just as geeked as I was 2 years ago. In 2010, I moderated the “Humor Writing Lab” with Lizz Winstead (co-creator of the Daily Show) and …

Last month, I went paintballing for the first time ever. It was my friend’s birthday and he wanted a big, fun group activity and he thought “PAINTBALL!” I won’t lie. I was half excited and half scared crapless. You mean we’re all about to get in a ring and shoot …

Insomnia is a Hater Bish And I Need to Quit Her

There’s this ugly trollop I met in college named Insomnia. I don’t know how or why we became such BFFs but we were closer than close. But she was terrible for my life. She was a bad influence and we’d hang out all night doing nothing and then I’d blink …

Sending Love to My Oldest Reader: Mother Doretha

This blog is about to be 6 years old, and it’s definitely grown in reach since way back when I was still on Blogspot, back when it was called “Luvvie’s Random Rants” and looked like a cave. One of the people who’s been with me all along is Mother Doretha …

I Took New Headshots So Help Me Pick One!

Since I speak at conferences pretty often, both on social media topics and to represent The Red Pump Project, I’m asked for my headshot a lot. But the one I always use is one from January 2010. And it’s obvious that it’s old because my locs are still 1-inch comb …
