Ms. 1000

Many of you are going to think this post is extra because of the subject matter.  However, with this Umbrella, I've been very blessed to be able to do things and able to watch my baby grow.  Well, my blogging baby grow.  

When I first joined the wonderful world of Twitter in 2012, I honestly didn't like it.  I was still so caught up in the book of faces (yes, that's what I call it).  However, as I started using Twitter more, the more I enjoyed it.  It took less than 18 months for it to become my primarily used social media.  Even though I was using it more, it still wasn't about getting people to follow me.  I just wanted to speak my mind and live tweet a few TV shows (which has been awesome by the way).  

As many of you know, I started this blog in 2013.  When I first started, I wanted it to be a journal, but public.  At the same time, I would share my page with you on social media and people started following my blog.  I thought that was pretty cool.  But, do you know how people knew about my blog?  Via Twitter!  

I decided to put my blog link on my Twitter page.  Then as my blog started to grow, I added places on my blog page where you could follow me on my various social media.  That seemed to work out pretty well for me.  Then, just a few months ago, I joined the world of apps to help me gain followers on my social media...and this brings us to the reason I am posting this blog today! 

To many of you, this is a small number.  However, some of you are really going to understand this achievement.  THANK YOU so much to the followers and fans of this blog because at the end of September, you helped me reach 1000 followers on Twitter!  Since reaching that point, it's been on a steady climb to get 1100.  

Just because I really wanted to do something special, I decided to dedicate a page in my bullet journal to my new success!  In the picture, you see I made September, but I also wanted to make sure I did something just a little bit extra.  This is where the paisley print comes in.  I wanted to make my page pretty and make it stand out, but it was also really important for me to draw it myself because reaching 1000 Twitter followers meant so much to me.  It was an absolutely perfect way to celebrate this milestone while continuing to set goals and reach the next 1000.  

Again, I just want to say a huge thank you for supporting The Plus Diaries (and everything that involves) and supporting the writer behind it.  I'm a long way from where I want to be, but I am definitely so much further than I ever thought I would be.  

If you ever want to work with me on a collaboration, please reach out to me via social media or send me an email (which is listed on my social media).  I look forward to working with you and I cannot wait to see what I am going to do when I reach 2000!

Save Yourself

I am so proud of myself.  I have a tendency to just want to help people, even if it hurts myself.  This year, I've made it a point to focus on self-care.  Not being mean or selfish, but I need to make sure Tameika is good first.  

A couple of weeks ago, someone in my life needed something.  They never asked, but they kept dropping hints about what they needed.  Last year, I would have just offered to help.  This year, that's not going to be the case.  Well, the situation has worked itself out.  That's a great thing.  

Honestly, even if the question would have been asked, I would not have helped.  Why?  I'm glad you asked...

It's because for the first time in a few years, I'm finally coming first in my own life.  I'm taking my life back and it feels so wonderful.  I hope this lasts and that the people around me support what I'm doing.  

I can't keep draining myself in order to support others.  Since I'm such an advocate for self-care, it's time f…

Days of family past

My final post of the year had some cool questions.  I'm going to use this post to answer those questions.  Do not worry, I'm not going to tell who asked what (because I want to protect you from the possible wrath).  I'm just going to answer them.

1 - What is your relationship with your cousin? I have no relationship with my cousin.  In fact, I reference this person as my dad's sister's child.  That relationship ended on August 21, 2017.
2 - What do you think caused this reaction from your cousin? Honestly, I don't have an answer for you.  Of course, my parentals and I have talked at length about it and both told me what they believe to be the cause.  I would rather not say because I want to keep their lives as peaceful as possible and not have to deal with this particular person.  
3 - How do you feel about being around your cousin? I don't want to be around my dad's sister's child.  As far as I am concerned, this person told me exactly what they felt abo…

Year End Review - Edition 2017

This is typically the hardest post for me to write.  You would think I would be used to it by now since I do it every single year, but it doesn't get easier.  I truly think they get more interesting though.  And believe me, 2017 was one for the books.  But let's get to how amazing this year actually was.  

First quarter of the year is always a bit interesting because I get to enjoy Winter and my birthday!  A new person was born into the family and she was absolutely perfect.  She still is and I just enjoy her so, even though I don't see her often.  But what makes her so great to me is that she was born on my actual due date.  Kindred spirit, maybe?  And in thrilling fashion, I celebrated my birthday an entire usual.  It was fun times with my friends and I absolutely had a blast with my parentals.  
The second quarter was a bit quiet.  I finally came up with a blog schedule and I really needed that to happen.  That was also when I sort of regrouped and decided to t…
