November 2016


The end is near!

Can you believe that the end of 2016 is here already? This year has been packed with so much drama and sadness that we're all ready to see what the new year holds for us. There's not much going on with the blog at this current moment except that things are on pace for the end of the year and I am still going on my hiatus. That's pretty much the main question that everyone has been asking me every time they've spoken with me since I announced it. I don't think most people understand the purpose for said break and why I feel it's very necessary. I can break it down somewhat for you, but I feel there are people that still won't understand or acknowledge that it needs to happen. But for those sensible folks out there here are a couple of main reasons why I'm doing this:

1. I'm mentally stretched at this current juncture of my life. | Even if I did want to say I wouldn't be producing at the level in which I'm use to. There are a couple of things that I have going on in my personal life that I need to handle, and while writing is therapeutic for me, blog work has to take a backseat for awhile. It takes a lot to run a whole blog by yourself. There's so much that goes into making it successful, and while some of us have the luxury of quitting our jobs to do this full time, I don't lol. There's a time and a place for everything and right now blogging has to take a backseat to my other priorities. Plus I'm just tired of the output that I've been producing over the course of the last three years basically. It's time that I step back a bit and take some time to enjoy this reset button.

2. I need to get physically better. | I feel way off in the way I take care of my body. If you didn't know by now, your body plays the most important role in being a blogger. If you're physically in shambles then your mind will suffer because it's trying to over compensate and produce too much that it doesn't have. Plus with me working an actual physically demanding job I can't afford to fall off too much more. So I'm going to be working on that a lot more than I currently am and during that process I'm going to go through some extreme changes that's going to affect the way I operate. Like I said before, running a blog takes a lot and I won't be able to do that at that moment.

3. I need to do some house cleaning up in this peace. | There is so much content on this blog from over the years that I need to go back through and clean up a lot of posts. I have this very, very bad habit of just posting and going. Now that there are way more eyes than I would like on this place I know that I need to go ahead clean up all of the grammatical errors and copyrighted pictures while I can. I'm transitioning into the next phase and instead of deleting all of the things that actually made people come here, (and continue to come here), I'm going to go through and fix all of it and that takes time. I have a whole draft folder and as some of my close confidants know, it's A LOT of things in there as well. Basically I'm going to go just regroup a tad.

There are a couple of other reasons but those are the main ones that folks need to concern themselves with. It's just that time where every person who gets ready for the next level takes to reevaluate things and get stuff together. I'm not doing anything new that no one else hasn't done before. I know a lot of folks will miss me and what not but I promise I will still be around and I will still do stuff with my fellow creatives as I pointed out before. I'm not dropping off the face of the earth completely. I will post any feature, podcast or vlog that I grace for you all to keep you up to date with what's going on. I also decided to keep doing monthly updates just so that you all know that I'm alive and what not. So to that effect I will still be around doing stuff for other people that I believe in; just keep your eyes open for it.

Hope all of that clears up the air for you all. If you have any questions you know that you can just either leave a comment below or send me a message on outlet that I have. I'm here for you lol! I do want to apologize to folks to that I've recently passed up on in terms of opportunities, but it's been really hectic in the last month or two, but it's getting back to the schedule I'm use to. So I'll be back around, slowly but surely.
