Merry Christmas From My Family To Yours!
Everything about LEMONADE is addictive.
Lemonade is one of my favorite summer drinks. I make it from scratch squeezing six fresh lemons, adding cane sugar, and water into a pitcher. The sweet and tart flavor blend quenches my thirst during the warm months. I also use lemon based soaps and creams that provide a touch of cool twang that is much needed around that time of year. So I have always enjoyed lemons.
Now … By now … I am sure everyone has heard of Queen Bey’s new audio and visual collection titled LEMONADE.
I was hooked on it the first three seconds it aired on HBO. I got HBO free that weekend and was able to watch it several times before I purchased the CD/DVD combo. Now I can play it anytime I like for as long as I like, and the Hubs is like, “Oh no not again.” But, it’s like, yes dear just one more time that normally turns into four or five more times.
Anybody who knows me knows when I’m really into something I can watch it a hundred times and not get tired of it.
LEMONADE is the bomb. My favorite songs are “Sorry” and “Don’t Hurt Yourself” and my favorite on the visual is, well, all of them. I love the Louisiana setting.
I don’t get excited about many things but I am about this new body of work. Maybe because, just like many, I can relate. We all have experienced being cheated on or being the cheater ourselves. Then perhaps dealing with reconciliation. These songs penetrate familiar emotions whose voice people hear their own stories in, whatever the stories may be.
I’m old school!!
I have received another set of emails from my fantastic readers who would like to start their own blog and want to know about various platforms to select and blog designs.
I decided on a platform that was based on my current life experience. When I made the decision to go natural I wanted to document everything - what I did, the products I used, the products I made and how I felt during the transition.
In the beginning I knew nothing about starting a blog. I was lost. After making a few phone calls I found someone to walk me through the start up of it all. I selected a Word Press theme and then hired a logo designer and a web designer. My designers came recommended by other bloggers – one I would recommend - the other I would not.
I already knew how I wanted my blog to look so I was able to give my designers a clear image to work with which is important to do. From the very start (the thought), to the grand finale, it took about five months to get everything organized. I think that time length was a bit much but that’s what happened.
Now that my blog is up and running I am very pleased with it. I want to add my Twitter account but I am not sure how to do that yet.
I am very thankful for everyone following me. This journey really isn’t easy. I often wonder what my hair is going to look like when the transition is all said and done.
I received several emails from my readers asking what is considered sharing too much information and what is contributing?
I have read a lot of blogs that were very personal. The bloggers wrote about all of their struggles and fears regarding a variety of issues including HIV, abortions, addictions, abandonment and so on. Then there are blogs that only focus on topics such as hair, clothes, film, fashion, family or entertainment. Some of those blogs offer no or very little information about the publisher. But there are a few that provide a decent bio.
In the blogging world it is important to be honest with your readers. Therefore, share what you feel comfortable sharing. Readers do like to know about the bloggers so there is some sort of connection with the stories that are posted. The purpose of sharing personal information with the masses is to help someone else, and in the process, you will discover that you are also helping yourself.
