FULL CIRCLE

HEY GUYS!  I’M BACK.  WITH A NEW BLOG AND SOME GREAT NEWS.  I’VE BEEN WORKING ON STARTING MY OWN “BRAND” FOR ABOUT 2 YEARS NOW (DAMN, IT’S BEEN THAT LONG?? FUCK!) I’VE BEEN DOING SOME EXCITING THINGS IN PREPARATION FOR THE LAUNCH (IN A MONTH) AND I’M EAGER TO SHARE THIS EXPERIENCE WITH YOU.

MY NEW BLOG (WHICH IS ASSOCIATED WITH THE BRAND) IS NOT A “STYLE” BLOG PER SE.  IT’S A BLOG ABOUT IDEAS.  IT’S A BLOG ABOUT INSPIRATION.  I HOPE THAT MY ENTRIES ARE INSPIRING AND THOUGHT PROVOKING FOR YOU AS IT HAS BEEN FOR ME.

OF COURSE THERE WILL BE STYLE POSTS AND POST ABOUT PRODUCTS THAT I’VE BEEN DESIGNING.  BUT THE PURPOSE OF THIS BLOG IS NOT TO “KEEP UP” WITH ANYONE, BUT TO STAY TRUE TO MYSELF AND BE AS HONEST AND OPEN AS I POSSIBLY CAN BE.

WE HAVE ENOUGH BLOGS THAT PROVIDE THAT KIND OF ESCAPIST DRUG WE’VE ALL BECOME ADDICTED TO.  I’M INTERESTED IN PROVIDING MY OWN PERSONAL REALITY, HOPING THAT ON SOME LEVEL, YOU CAN RELATE TO MY MADNESS.

DISCLOSURE

HEY KIDS,

THIS IS SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN ON MY MIND FOR A FEW MONTHS AND NOW I’VE DECIDED TO FINALLY PUT IT INTO ACTION.

I’VE DECIDED NOT TO HAVE A BLOG ANYMORE.  TRUTHFULLY, MY HEART IS NOT IN IT AS IT WAS WHEN I FIRST STARTED.  IT’S NOT JUST BLOGGING BUT THE WHOLE INTERNET, THIS TECHNOLOGY THAT WE HAVE WRAPPED OUR WHOLE LIVES AROUND AND AS WELL AS WRAPPED OUR IDENTITIES AROUND A DISTANT, GLOBAL “CONNECTION”.  I’VE BEEN BARELY ON THE INTERNET FOR ANYTHING OTHER THAN TAKING CARE OF ESSENTIALS LIKE SHOPPING (NOT FOR CLOTHING), BANKING AND BILL PAYING. I DON’T EVEN GIVE A SHIT ABOUT FACEBOOK.

READING ABOUT THE IDEA OF FAME, AND HOW OTHERS WILL DO ANYTHING TO BE FAMOUS (THANKS TO THE ACCESSIBILITY AND THE LOW ECONOMICS OF USING THE INTERNET) MAKES ME SAD.  IT’S AN ADDICTION LIKE ANY OTHER ONE THAT ALL OF US HAVE.  I DON’T WANT TO BE A PART OF IT.   I’M NOT INTERESTED IN FAME AND I DON’T WANT TO BE PART OF A VEHICLE THAT PEOPLE USE TO ATTAIN A CERTAIN CULTURAL STATUS.  IF THAT’S YOUR THING, BY ALL MEANS, GO AHEAD AND ALL THE BLESSINGS TO YOU. I MEAN THAT WHOLEHEARTEDLY.  WE HAVE ALL SEEN THOSE AMAZING STORIES THAT ONLY THE INTERNET COULD PROVIDE.

IT’S JUST NOT ME. 

I PREFER TO LIVE A MORE PRIVATE AND QUIET LIFE, OUTSIDE OF ENDLESS CHATTER. THAT’S HOW THE INTERNET HAS BECOME FOR ME, ENDLESS CHATTER AND BY HAVING A BLOG, I’M CONTRIBUTING TO THE ENDLESS CHATTER(THIS IS NOT A NEGATIVE JUDGMENT OF MY BLOG).  I DON’T CARE ABOUT OUTFIT POSTS, SHOPPING POSTS, LOOK-HOW-HARD-I’M-PARTYING-POSTS, ETC…I JUST CARE ABOUT LIVING LIFE AUTHENTICALLY, WITHOUT THE NEED TO GATHER MATERIAL FOR A BLOG POST.  I CAN DO THAT WONDERFULLY WITHOUT HAVING TO BE ONLINE.  THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO PLAY THIS GAME OF LIFE.

I’M NOT COMPLETELY OBLITERATING THE INTERNET FROM MY LIFE, AFTER ALL IT IS A TOOL.  I DO THE MAJORITY OF SHOPPING ONLINE, PAY BILLS, BANKING, ETC.  I DON’T WANT IT TO BECOME A BAROMETER OF MY IDENTITY (WHO CARES IF I LOSE A FOLLOWER, ETC). I’M FOCUSED ON MAINTAINING MY GREAT RELATIONSHIPS WITH MY FAMILY AND MY FRIENDS WHILE ALSO ENCOUNTERING NEW CONNECTIONS IN PERSON THROUGH LIVING MY LIFE OFFLINE.

SO THANK YOU TO EVERY SINGLE READER WHO HAS VISITED MY BLOG FROM DAY ONE (WHEN IT WAS ON BLOGSPOT) UNTIL NOW.  I SINCERELY APPRECIATE ALL THE OBSERVATIONS AND COMMENTS FROM EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU.  I HAVE MADE SOME WONDERFUL CONNECTIONS VIA MY BLOG AND I HOPE THEY CONTINUE TO GROW IN THE FUTURE.

LOTS OF LOVE

P.S. DON’T MIND THE CAPS.  I WRITE IN CAPS IN REAL LIFE, AND IT LOOKS “NORMAL” TO ME TO TYPE IN CAPS AS WELL.
