YES!!! The 31st day of October means the LAST day of the National Blog Post Month Challenge. My baby girl, Lala or Kissyface, as I call her...asked me via Twitter to participate and I dragged in a few pals so I wouldn't suffer alone. LMAO. I Kid...I kid. I am thankful for those who came along and put on their blogging drawlz. You all did your thing. I have to say...this was a VERY important month and Lala is like some kinda on-purpose-by-accident GENIUS. This month, two very important platforms were championed. Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Domestic Violence Awareness month came and is now gone, but the disease and the dilemmas of violence remain. There has been some really good stories concerning both on the blogs of those who came along on this ride with me. Please go take a peek at the list of lovelies who participated.
I will now say THANK YOU, ladies and gents for participating. I love you all. You made me proud. There were some days that NONE of us wanted to blog, but we pulled together and did it. What's the purpose you say? We've shared our stories/testimonies, we've learned SO much about each other, we've gained connections (I see you guys out there following each other and holding each other down in the comments!), we've grown literally, LITERALLY...and we've expressed ourselves in a forum where we've been supported and applauded.
MY JOY!! You did it!! I remember last year...you tried, but you didn't get through it due to some unforeseen things going on. THIS year...in SPITE of what came at you, you caught bullets in your teeth and became this wonder-blogger that I'm SO proud of. Sis, I love you. Thanks for coming along.
DEE aka Afrodeezha! WOW. Your last blog had me in tears, and I shed a little as I write this. Your stories were motivational, real, well-rounded and inspiring. I learned more about you and cherish you dearly (as if I could love you more). Thank you for coming along...and dragging...
THUGROCKSTAR!!! You ROCK babe! You put it down over there. You're FUNNY, witty, intelligent and damned consistent. You're definitely a blog worth following and reading. I dig you man...I dig you...you buttery mothafucka! LMAO (I kid...please don't beat me up. *mind wandering* okay...shaking off that vision) HAHA!!
GOD'ESS! ~ Woman...you were more prompt than ME most days. LOL I wish I'd gotten the chance to read your blogs on 360, but we weren't connected then. NOW that we are...I can honestly say this (and I'm not being biased). What YOU thought was short, considered "cheating" and may have thought you didn't put your all in...beats out a LOT of folks' blogs who do "put their all in" to their blogs and fail MISERABLY! Your posts were thoughtful, thought provoking, intimate and straight to the point. That is needed...especially in the day of the short attention span. I'm glad you are now blogging...I'm sure after a short siesta you'll return...right? O_O lol...THANK you and LOVE you!
MY SUNDAE! You tried. LOL. It's not easy, but you tried. I love that you did. I know you're a woman about the world...superwoman with the prettiest locs flying in the wind, free-spirited aloft the city...so yea. LOL LOVE YOU STILL. (she still has some read-worthy blogs...go getchusum). Thanks, sis!
Last, but not la-la-least...Lala. Kissyface. Artsyface. The girl with the rocker look and the sweet girl voice. THANK YOU! Thanks for bringing me along and for inspiring this year AND last year's challenge. You've helped me to cultivate my blogger skills by being able to write impromptu and without thinking twice. I'm soooo in my head when thinking up blog topics, but this challenge has helped me just remove the filter and say what I need to say. Thanks again, babe. Love you much! (Um, can you inform me the next time you pack your blog bags and move? Please and thanks in advance)
~phew~ I'm done, y'all...see you in a few days...or weeks. lol
*doing my end zone dance* GOOOOOOOOOOOOAL!!!!!!
