Hello Awesome Readers,
Oh how I have missed you all. It has been way too long since I have blogged. So much has happened in my life in a very short time. Don’t worry I am still gainfully unemployed, poor, and witty those things haven’t changed take solace in that. I realized that I have never really talked to you my readers in this type of an open letter medium since I have started this blog. I started my blog back in May of 2010. I was a recent college grad and I was so happy that I had finally accomplished that goal it took me a long time to finish, but I was super excited when I finally got that degree in English Literature. I can hear you all collectively gasping and saying, “no wonder she’s unemployed she has a Humanities degree.” What can I say I did it for the love!
When I started this blog I wanted to create a space where people who share my similar interest can read up on pop-culture, feminist issues, and politics. In my mind, I never really thought anyone would read let alone comment or share the site, but I am happy to report I was wrong epically wrong. Not only did you read my blogs some of you commented, sent me facebook messages, twitter messages, text messages, phoned me, and emailed me to let me know you were reading. Fast forward to today my website is over a year old and still very much in its infancy stage. I am still learning what works and what doesn’t. I thought by the time my blog was a year old, I would’ve had everything figured out and would’ve upgraded my blog twice by now, but it appears my blog is very much like the other systems in my life a work in progress!
I spent my summer doing some soul searching because hey being unemployed allows lots of room for soul work. These soul sessions led me to pursue a Masters degree in Social Work (I can hear you all again “she must always want to eat top ramen” lol). I went from having too much time on my hands to having little time and because of that naturally the blog has suffered. I am still trying to find my rhythm within graduate school. With that said, my commitment to you is to update the blog site once a week (hopefully). Please continue to support me and my passion.
I wanted to take this time out to thank you all for the encouraging words, constructive criticism, letting me know when I spelled something wrong it was all appreciated. I hope to see more comments in the comment section and I promise to engage you more in the comment section as well.
If you absolutely can’t get enough of me please follow me on twitter @FeministGriote or hit me up in the comment section or email me @ TheFeministGriote@gmail.com. Again, I thank you and look forward to entertaining you and provoking thought in you!!!!
