It's been three years since I officially purchased
this domain. I bought it the day after I graduated from college and
coincidentally on my sister's 21st birthday. I was officially a college graduate
and I wanted to begin my own brand and solidify that before someone else
grabbed it up so I made the move and I'm glad I did. I recently thought about switching the name, but after thinking it over
and talking to a couple of my fellow bloggers, I really believe MOTC represents me.
I initially started this blog in 2010 to talk about
beauty and fashion (and I still will), but it's also grown to become sort of
like an online journal for me to express my thoughts and various interests. Over the past couple of weeks, I've really been thinking about my
life and what I need to do to get to the next level and I really want to put my
all into this little space. It may not be much compared to others' sites, but I
want to utilize it to share who I am and what I'm passionate about as a 20-somethin' trying to find my way in addition to the things I enjoy.
I decided to toss the whole 'stick-to-a-niche'
thing out the window long ago, because I would be doing a huge
disservice to myself if I choseto limit myself to one or two things for the
sake of site traffic. I love beauty and fashion, I love
music, I love talking about how awesome Black women are, and I love writing even though my posts
are sporadic. I want to continue to use this space as a platform for those
who are like me; who may not know what they wanna do in life, who challenge
traditional gender roles, or just want to rave about how awesome Beyoncé is. MOTC
is my baby and I vow to take steps towards sharing and most importantly,
growing as a brand and as a woman.
I wanna a
give a shoutout and thank you to my fellow blogger friends who read my sporadic
posts, encourage me and most of all in believe me. Yetti, Kimberly,
Shenequa and Tyece,
you girls are everything. I aspire to be as awesome as the four of you.
And last but not least, a big thank you to everyone whose ever read a post, commented, or anything. Your support is everything and it really does keep me motivated when I feel like throwing in the towel.
I wouldn't call this 'blogaversary' a celebration, it's more of a reflection for me. I just hope my 4th, 5th, and so on will be one for the books. Here's to celebratory blogaversaries in the future! - Jai <3 font="" nbsp="">3>
