Happy New Year!

How fitting is it that this is my 100th blog post? Yep, that's it. Even though I have had a blog for a year and a half, that's my number. But Here's the thing is a sporadic publication remember?


I am so competitive. Even if it is just against me and myself. I always want to win. It was October 30th when I had 42 posts to write to make it here. Myself thought it was a stretch; I said WE could do it.  As it got closer, me and myself whined that we would have to write something everyday. So I did. And here we are. 

The best thing about 2011 was finding ME. Let me just say Amazing Grace. I was no different than I am right now. I was just wearing me inside out.

For my 100th blog post, which happens to fall on January 1st (I planned it that way), I wanted to answer a few year in review questions. I picked out the ones I didn't have to think too hard to answer.

Was 2011 a good year for you?


What did you do in 2011 that you’d never done before?

I self-published a book!

What date from 2011 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?

November 30, 2011 - I clicked YES to approve my final proof. This is my publication date.

What was your biggest achievement of the year?

PUBLISHING The Christopher Chronicles.

What was your biggest failure?

I wouldn't call it a failure but I could have been published months earlier.

Where did most of your money go?

Investing in the business of ME.

What song will always remind you of 2011?

Maya Neiada - Pressha - I had an aha moment.

What do you wish you’d done more of?

Writing, but I did good.

What do you wish you’d done less of?


What did you want and not get?

I wanted a new iPad because Christopher has taken mine over.

What did you want and get?

My iPad. I got it back after Christmas when Christopher had better things to do.

What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?

41 - Me, Myself and I stayed up until a few minutes after midnight just because.

What kept you sane?

 Writing (it is free therapy) - but I wasn't going insane this year.

Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2011:

Don't wear something too tight in front of a six year old. He or she will surely hurt your feelings. Read more...

How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2011?

Lacking. I'm good for where I live. But I couldn't stroll up in New York or Atlanta without worrying about the fashion police. 

Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:

I decided to put my trust in you. Oh yesterday, yesterday, I realized that you would bring me through. There ain't nothing too hard for my God, no. Any problems that I have He's greater, greater than them all. So I decided, that I cried my last tear yesterday.

Mary Mary - Yesterday

Here's the thing...now that I have managed my 100th post to fall on New Years Day, I can go back to being sporadic instead of sporadically consistent.

Happy New Year my friends!

Sporadically Yours,
