Third House Goals

New goal for the year: weekly posts on this blog.

I’m still getting back into the rhythm of personal blogging. With so many places to say things, it’s hard to determine what needs to be said where (and honestly, what needs to be publicly said at all), but I issued a clarion call at the beginning of COVID for all the OG Bloggers to return to their blog spaces and I’ve only lived up to that half-way.

It’s just easier to say things on Instagram. My people are there. I’ll get maximum exposure there. Yet, it never stops feeling icky. I love chatting with my folks. I hate doing it on an app full of meme-speak, highly-stylized photos for the banalest of occasions, and a bunch of adults needing the internet to give them permission to do simple shit like take naps and say “no” to things.

Also, as my Instagram feed is teeming with photos of Sebastian Stan, how the hell am I supposed to focus long enough to say anything worth saying over there?

I belong here.

In my house. Growing this space. Getting back into the rhythm of consistent, thoughtful self-expression.

So my promise to myself (and the eight of you following me) is this: I’ll show up every Wednesday. Maybe by next Wednesday, I’ll have a cool name for it and everything.

I used to be "skinny black girl." I'm now a slender woman on the other side of 35 with no new moniker who is not quite interested in writing under her given name. Still writing my life, a day (or some months) at a time. Also, still black.

  1. Hello!

    ….the fka SBG back to regular programming? Very great news on this confounding Wednesday.

    As for the siren to other bloggers, that’s such a great idea. I had a blog ages and ages and another lifetime ago called Back to Black, and though I rekindled my blog, I’m still a little more comfy behind a scrim still. But we’ll see….


    1. Omg. Of course, I remember Back to Black from the Blogger days! So good to see you in these Internet streets. And if I happen to get you back to blogging, eeeeven better.


  2. Yay for more posting! The struggle in picking a place to say things and how to say it is real… Your posting is motivating and reminds me that personal blogging isn’t a waste. The audience is always there, even if we don’t realize it officially.
