Time To Blow Off the Dust

*dust off blog* 

I've been neglecting this awesome space for some time for various reasons, all of which are just excuses to hide my real reasons. But those excuses stop today. Not only am I ready to blog again I'm ready to discuss why I stopped. So we'll start there. 

When I started this blog it was an outlet for all the crazy things I see as I travel through life and NYC, a journal of sorts. I would write and not worry about if anyone was reading or commenting and I was happy. As people outside of my network started reading I got a little nervous, and started writing more of what I thought people wanted instead of how I felt. I got more readers and a lot more comments but I wasn't happy because it wasn't completely genuine even if it did have a few people paying attention. So I started pulling away. Every day last year I started a post and then left it in my drafts, because I would lose my passion for the subject and in that my voice. 

The voice that was no-nonsense and strong and all mine was gone. And sadly I couldn't figure out a way to get it back (in more than 140 characters that is). Fast forward to today...I'm ready to just say what I feel again and I'm taking this back to the way it started. I will journal my life, in my voice and worry about nothing. The first 30 days will be hard but I'm going to do it. No Excuses. I've been bottled up for a bit now so you might want to prepare and Get ready! 

I won't be going this first 30 days alone. My tweeps Tyrone M and Orig_Glamazon will be participating as well. It's always easier when you have to be accountable to someone else.
