I suck with keeping up with anything that has to deal with anniversaries or birthdays. I received an email over the weekend from someone informing me that they’ve been following my writing for the last 7 years. I was tempted to reply back that I could give them better things to do with their time, but I kept it friendly and appreciative. Then it dawned on me that they were correct, as of last month, I’ve had this site for 7 years. Sure, it’s gone through its fair share of name changes (funkyblackchick, fungkeblakchick, flyblackchick & now the present), but the one thing that has remained the same is that it’s been an interesting writing ride.
When I started my blog I used it as an opportunity to vent about life events. From there it evolved into me venting about current events and pop culture. And most recently it’s been collecting dust. I just don’t like sharing my opinion any more with random strangers, or even writing about my personal life. There’s enough shit out there on the internet about that. I used to enjoy writing on my personal blog, but over the last several years, I’ve learned that some things are better left unwritten.
Not everything things to be shared.
Not everything needs to be reminisced about.
Not everything needs to become some wax poetical experience.
And for fuck’s sake.
Not everything needs to be a think piece.
In any event, those readers who are left, and still have an active subscription, thanks for sticking around. I can’t promise that I’ll update this site often, but who knows, maybe someone will give me something good to write about.
Until then, check out my daily shit on The Root.com.
