Hello people! How is your week going? I really hope it is going good so far. For me, I have been really really bored. I have just been watching movies on YouTube and Netflix, as well as reading and listening to music. Also, school starts again in about two weeks and I am so ready! Man, I just want to be done with school already. Anyway, I am already sharing too much information. Let us get into today’s post:)
So, I know that a lot of you would be very very confused about today’s topic but I promise you it’s not complicated. I am simply going to be telling y’all about the truth of this blog. Just keep reading, it gets better and clearer.
Currently, I am re-reading the book, “AMERICANAH” by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, which is one of my all-time favorites. The main character, Ifemelu is a blogger. She is very bold and fearless in her writing. She writes a lot about race because she is a black woman in New York, who has gone through so many things and has seen a lot due to her race. I really love the way she writes and how she is very real in her blog. She is not trying to please people with her writing, she is mainly putting her thoughts and opinions out there. Seeing the way she writes and is very real with her readers really moved me.
It actually got me thinking. I thought about my blog and how I am trying so hard to be a people pleaser. I am not writing what I really want to write. I am writing what I think people would love to see and read. If you know me, you would know that I am a very deep person. I have a lot of stuff running through my mind and I would love to write about those things. My blog is like my little space on the internet where I let my readers explore my mind. I want to write about all the things in my mind. It might get a little personal but not really because I am not that type of person that exposes myself. I just want to write about all the thoughts that run all over my head. The thoughts that keep me up at night. The thoughts that make me lose concentration while doing something or talking to someone. All those interesting and deep thoughts. Also know that I am still going to be writing about God and my faith/Christianity. It is just going to be more real!🤗🤗
Another thing that moved me to review my blog is the book, “So You want to talk about Race” by Ijeoma Oluo(..ps, I am really really loving this book so far..) Ijeoma is a blogger. She is also a black woman in America who has seen a lot and has gone through so much because of her race. In her blog, she talks about racial discrimination and other race topics that a lot of people shy away from. I love Ijeoma’s boldness and realness. She is not just writing what people want to see. She is writing about something so dear to her. She is putting herself out there. She is not trying to please anybody with her blog. I must say, Ijeoma is an amazing woman.
In all, in case y’all did not get the memo yet, things are going to change on this blog.😊 I am tired of being a people pleaser and I am done with trying to write what I think people would like to read. This is growth for me and I am also thankful to God who also showed me that I need to stop trying to please people. This blog is about to be ON FIRE!! With a big smile on my face, I welcome y’all into the mind of Bee.😌🙃
Also, I decided to start uploading a new blogpost twice a week. I will be putting out a new blogpost on Wednesdays and Fridays, so help me God. I know y’all want to know the full gist behind this. I’ve got you. So, if you did not already know, I love writing. I thought that since I love writing, why am I only uploading a blogpost once a week?? To be honest, the reason why I only upload once a week is because I literally do not know what to write about. I am always thinking of a topic that people would want to read but that is over now! Y’all are going to be blessed by me twice a week now😜 That is all for today. Thank you everyone for your support! Bye:)
This picture is literally how I feel right now. I feel good letting it all out. Please do not stop supporting me and do not stop reading. It gets so much better from here!
