Introducing...

I've had the pleasure of participating in some wonderful tweet chats in 2016.  However, I cannot even write this post without sending some love to Selina Weekes, founder of Manik Mag and #HautiesTalk (which happened long before 2016).  Ok, let me get back to it! 

There have been some wonderful tweet chats I've had the pleasure of joining.  Many of them are across the pond in the UK, but that has just helped me to grow my blogging community.  In fact, I have so many chats I participate in that I must keep them in my calendar so I don't miss a single one! Because I've had so much fun and I'm looking for more ways to grow this blog, I've decided to start my own chat!  Let me introduce to you #TPDchat!!!  



Now, this is going to be so much more than a just a chat that happens twice a month.  This is going to be a way for me to get a better connection with other bloggers.  Bloggers have helped me so much by retweeting and liking my blog posts.  They have also been instrumental in leaving comments and giving advice.  Therefore, this will be my official hashtag for you to use when you want a blog post retweeted (after I have read it, or course) and this will be what we will use while participating in my tweet chats.  Just like many of the others I participate in, these are open to anyone who wish to participate.  Just because you don't blog doesn't mean you are not blogging now and it doesn't mean you are not reading blogs. 

#TPDchat will be launching in January and I am so excited!  I know this is happening really
quick, but the first chat will be happening January 4 at 6:00pm EST.  I'm pretty sure that is 11:00pm UK, but I hope some of my friends over the pond will be willing to have a late night and participate.  The second chat of the month will take place on January 21 at 2:00pm EST.  I know it's midday Saturday, but I really hope many of you will be able to join me.


I've told you about the upcoming chat dates and times, the hashtag, and how I plan on using this platform to help the blogging community.  With all things, we, the participants, make things good or bad.  I know I'm going to put in the work, but I hope you are also willing to put in the work to join in.  I'm not just talking about joining in with the blog, I'm talking about you diving into the blog.  This next part is probably the most exciting thing I wanted to share with all of you today.  

I want you to host some of these chats!  Yes, you!!!  It's so simple to find out how!!!  Once you contact me, we will find out what topic you want to discuss and when you can host.  Once we have those and some other details ironed out, you will be ready to host!  

I'm absolutely thrilled about this new adventure and I am really hoping you are too!  I look forward to making #TPDchat great and another place for people to connect, grow, and learn from each other.

Big body, big hair

Earlier this week, I was cruising around the twitterverse and noticed a cool shirt floating around.  The shirt said, no you cannot touch my hair.  I thought it was funny, but it is a huge thing in the natural hair community that people do not like for their hair to be touched.  I might be the weird one because it honestly doesn't bother me.  Now, just don't come up to me and touch my hair, but if you ask and I'm feeling a bit friendly (LOL), I just might let you feel these beautiful natural curls that God so graciously gave me.  

In my opinion, my hair is awesome.  However, after my transition from processed to natural, I didn't always feel that was the case.  I was so used to my hair being straight and long.  But, I just kept cutting it shorter and shorter until I eventually did the big chop and I became 100% natural.  

I guess now, I feel more confident.  As the years have passed, I've been more confident in my body and now I'm a lot more confident in my hair.…

The Outsiders

It has been too much going on in the blogging world recently.  I mean, I know that any press is good press, but this might have been too much.  Then add it on top of that, you get people who don't blog chiming in talking about you're just doing it to get free stuff or get a real job or find something to do with your spare time.  Let me answer all three of those - I've been writing in The Plus Diaries for almost five years and have proudly made 25 dollars (by accident), I do work a full-time job with great benefits, and writing is just one of the things I do in my spare time.  For you nosey people, I also do crafts, travel, and currently studying for a couple of tests in my free time.  



Blogging is supposed to be fun!  That's why I got into it in the first place.  But trust me, I salute all the wonderful bloggers out there making money off their blogs.  That's awesome to me!  You are doing what you love and making money off it?  If the quote is true and they really l…

The Big Bang

It's been a while.  It truly has been a while.  I am typically great about telling you when I am taking a blogging break, but sometimes, life just comes at your fast.  At the end of January, life came at me hella fast.  Had it not been for the one blog post I had already written and set up to post, you would not have heard from me when you did.  But, I'm getting back to my feet and feeling more and more like my normal self.  

I know what you are thinking - what happened?!  Well, that's for me to know and for you to never find out.  There are some things in my life that I would rather keep personal and this is one of those times.  I've told the people who need to know and it will go no further than that.  But, let's get one to some fun stuff.  

I still have been active on my Instagram and Twitter pages.  I promised to keep you all updated on my weight loss madness that is happening and I've been trying to do so.  I don't want to turn into one of those people w…
