OMG I feel like it’s been so long since I’ve done a proper blog post! To go from
trying to post 5 days a week to .. once a month since like a huge jump but for good reason 🙂
I’m just reevaluating myself as a writer. I want to write more purposefully and when I REALLY have things I want to say, not just filler posts that I don’t really care about. Plus, I’m working on a huge writing project that I can’t talk about yet, but it’s taking up a lot of my time.
I wanted to check in with you guys and see how you’ve been doing? I also wanted to let you know that I’ve been PUBLISHED in a real, physical magazine! I’ve been published before, in IMARA Woman Magazine through my internship and through other blogs and e-magazines but this is the first time where I’ve pitched, wrote an article for, and got an article published in a physical magazine from freelancing alone. Yay!
This magazine is called Sesi, it’s basically the Seventeen Magazine for black girls. Not to say that Seventeen isn’t for everyone, but you know how they have articles that teenage girls of color can’t exactly relate to? This is a new magazine that covers that medium and I’m so excited to be working with them.
My word for 2015 is Purpose, so I’m only writing about things and for publications that mean something. I had to take a break from A LOT of my freelance work from last year because, like I said, this writing project is taking up a lot of my time, but writing this column for Sesi is something that I wanted to keep doing. It’s called “Breaking Down the Wallflower”, basically giving dating advice to the shy girl’s in high school!
Check it out, you can order a copy or subscribe to this magazine here. Also, let me know how your year has been starting off! Great, I hope! 🙂
