Blogging 101

Blogging is here to stay, and I think most folks can have a good blog about whatever, as long as they’re passionate about the topic, knowledgeable and can spell. I’ve been blogging for over ten years and I’m a serial blogger, running multiple ones that are pretty decent. I’m also a social media strategist and I [...]

Dear GMail, Never Crash Again Thumbnail

So I was minding my own bitness at work yesterday when I refreshed my GMail inbox and saw that it was down. Life got real dark right then and there. This is why this week’s sternly-worded email is to GMail. For playing all these bald-headed games with me and my emotions. Dear GMail, Me and [...]

If this weekend was a dessert, it’d be a Bailey’s Irish Cream Cheesecake with pecans & caramel drizzled all over it. It was just THAT much awesome. Like seriously.

There were many lunchtimes when we’d all go into the computer lab to update our BP pages on some “Girl, did you see my new picture???”. Just [...]

I’m a Facebook veteran. Nay… a historian. I’ve been on Facebook since the face was still just a fetus in the womb of Mark Zuckerberg’s mind. HA! Ok fine, I’ve been on Facebook since the face was chubby and cute and still lived in diapers. Facebook was founded in February 2004, and I got on [...]

I wrote a while back about my Love/Hate Relationship with Facebook, and everything I said there still stands. This is just a continuation. *Newsfeed Comments – Now that Facebook allows you to comment on any and everything, people really don’t know how to act. Etiquette don went out the window, like Lil Kim’s draws would [...]

I’ve been gone for a minute, now I’m back it’s the JUMP OFF (lol excuse my bout of urban youthery. I couldn’t help myself). Anyway, it’s been a while since I wrote a note, and I didn’t watch the BET HIP Hop Awards because I wanted to hold on to the few brain cells I [...]
