Introducing My Latest Site: Awesomely Techie!

I love technology and I’m a not-so-secret geek when it comes to all things digital.

It’s definitely one of my passions and something I’m pretty good at […]

What I Wore to the ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon

Where Is My Scandal Recap?

I dropped the ball and I didn’t know how much. I had no idea y’all would long for my missing Scandal recap so much. I’ve received many emails, tweets, comments and side-eyes from people because I have not posted my recap to the latest Scandal episode. It is clear that folks won’t let me live […]

The AOL Dial Up Chronicles: Throwback Thursday

Sit down, kids. I’d like to tell you a story. It’s of a time way back when, before we could fit a phone, camera, music player, video player and recorded into a machine the size of a hershey’s candy bar. Picture it, people’s houses, 1998… This was an ancient time when internet connection wasn’t wifi-enabled […]

Whose Reverend is this Threatening Me in the Name of Jesus?

It is that time of the year again: when people use Martin Luther King Jr.’s image inappropriately for club flyers. MLK ain’t march to be the image of “Freaky Fridays” at the local disco. STAHP IT EVERYONE! I already wrote about this last year but more flyers have emerged for this year’s foolish celebrations, so […]
