Oh! Hello, June! Just in case you all do not know, June is my favorite month. Summer begins this month and not to mention, is my birthday month! As we are at the halfway mark of 2016, (I can't believe how fast this year is moving), I hope that you all are keeping up with your plans, goals, and new year resolutions (remember those, lol). My year so far has been a rollercoaster of unexpected life decisions and emotions. Thrilled, my blog has taken off to new heights, I have made some awesome connections, and continuously strengthening my craft. Unfortunately earlier this year, I had to make a difficult decision and quit my full-time job for personal reasons. I promise I will share that story at a later date. During my time of unemployment, I had to figure out what I wanted out of life. Granted, I should be living life and building my career especially since my recent accomplishment of graduating with my Master's Degree, huh!? Well, needless to say, I stepped out on faith, and if anyone tells you that this process is easy is lying! Indeed, there are plenty of good and bad days. Again, I will share in a future post. Anywho, I decided to take a month off from blogging. I needed a break. Now in the blogging world, my decision to pause in the middle of emerging is critical, but it was something that needed to be done. I was not in my right mindset, and I was uninspired and not motivated. In order to provide my beautiful subscribers stellar content, I had to do what was best and take a break to clear my mind. I vowed to myself to resume doing what I love in the month that I love. Until then, I will continue to stay in faith because God never fails! Faith it until you make up and continue to walk by faith and not by sight.
Love you all!!!
I cannot believe that I am thirty-eight years old! I know, you are shocked, but I am a product of a Melanin Queen, aka my mother and I am the Melanin Goddess. We age like fine wine, honey!
First off, let me say this. I am not perfect, and I am not a robot.
Now that we got that out of the way let me be quite frank with you. Ever since I packed my bags and relocated to Atlanta, the journey has not been all roses. Granted, I am grateful for this opportunity, but the process that comes along with relocating is mad real. There were a lot of endeavors that occurred in my personal life last year that I unprepared for, but hey, that’s life, right
Happy October! It's a new month, and we are just under 100 days remaining of 2018. I remember at the beginning of this year, I read through my list of goals I wanted to achieve for 2018 and I can honestly tell you that rebranding was not one of them. However, I did indicate through prayer for an increase in my business and craft.
I know, I have been MIA for some time now, but a lot has happened in my personal life. I had plans on writing some blog posts regarding spending my first birthday as an Atlanta resident, my one year anniversary as a resident of Atlanta and other random posts including some podcast recordings. However, some events happened in my life to where I decided to take a mental break.
There is nothing like a good ole blogger challenge! My blogger boo Courtney from Passionate Woman CS created a fun challenge in her latest post, 25 & Winging It. She created this challenge for bloggers to share some fun facts, confessions and life lessons about us. So when my girl and blogger boo Michaela from A Dash of Michaela, shared her post, 23 & Winging It, she then tagged me to join the challenge as well and I am ready for the task.
I have always been a fan of Drake's music, especially when he released More Life last year. To this day I still play that album from start to finish. Earlier this year, he released God's Plan, and it caught my attention, at least I thought it did until he dropped, Nice for What this past Friday night. Let me tell you, the MOMENT I HEARD THIS SONG, I instantly fell in love.
I want to give you my "grand rounds" of creating content for your blog, brand, website, social media, etc. One thing I can attest to is that when I began my journey of blogging, all I had was my MacBook and my iPhone.
As the 2017 holiday season comes to a close and the new year is approaching, I want to take a moment to thank every one of you for supporting my brand and me. Becoming a blogger has always been a dream of mine, and before the launch of I am SohoGlam, I was afraid to open up and share my vision with the world.
Good day, my beauties! For this post, I want to feature another blog post I read a few weeks back on how to deal with copycats. As a creative, we all have our own identity and originality. However, there are times where we have people in our lives who "swagger jacks" us.
Happy Thanksgiving my beauties! I wanted to write a quick post to wish you all a great Thanksgiving and to let you know what I am thankful for. Of course, the main thing I look forward to is spending time with my family and eating great food. However, I am grateful for my ability to share a piece of my life with you on my blog.
