Hey, I’m sure you’ve all noticed that my blog posts have increased by a large number today (I’m not sure how many posts I added). And you may be wondering, did she just schedule a bunch of posts to appear today? The answer is no.
So, my friend Doyin and I were having conversations about what we wanted to see this year from our writing. Doyin seemed to have everything figured out, and I felt like I didn’t.
I knew I wanted to write stories, and poems, but I also wanted to write reviews of art shows, and books, and at the same time I wanted to talk about my life. And I definitely wanted to write think pieces and critical essays.
And although I’ve always felt weird about having a medium and a blog, I never gave it much thought. But I realized that the separation between my blog and my medium wasn’t helping me.
Because I felt bad when I left one page without updates, and at the same time it’s impossible to continually update both sites. This led to my decision to take everything off my medium page and transfer it to my blog, which essentially makes the medium page redundant.
And although that’s a huge decision to make, I feel like it’s for the better. I didn’t lose any stories, poems or prose (even though I did delete this one poem that I didn’t like as much).
I’m happy I made this decision because I have big dreams about my blog, I want to produce better content, and produce more frequently, I want to engage with everyone here more often.
So I’m here always, and hopefully I’ll be producing more for everyone that supports me. Thank you
