A few months ago, I wrote about a lane change I was trying to make in the writing game. As you can probably tell from my last few posts, things are finally headed in the direction I’ve wanted them to go. This week alone has been the most successful week that I’ve had as a writer and social media personality. Not because of how many views, likes, or retweets my content got, but because of the acknowledgement and appreciation I received. It’s been awesome.
If you follow me on Twitter, you see that I’m doing the same thing there that I’m doing here. I’m making people laugh, sharing motivational content, reflecting on my life to create relatable reads, and trying to get folks to think about how they’re approaching the day to day.
People appreciate it and it feels good. Positivity is infectious, so it’s a germ I don’t mind incubating and spreading. You won’t see me walking or tweeting with a SARS mask on.
Moving forward, I’m gonna work on keeping this site true to what I say in the sidebar. I want TRSJ to be a source of motivation, inspiration, introspection, and improvement.
Don’t worry. I’ll still be myself. You’ve seen more of me in the last few posts than you’ve seen in the last couple years. It took a while, but I’ve finally figured out how I can make the most impact and create the change in people’s lives that I’ve been dreaming about for years now.
In terms of Eff Em Friday, I’m gonna put it on hold. I know there are a few people out there that will try to stab me in my espophagus and toss me in a sarcophagus for this. I understand. I truly do. But I need to figure out how I can make Eff Em Friday a more consistent platform where people share positive tidbits and end their week on a high note. As light-hearted as Eff Em Friday may be, it sorta goes against what I’m trying to do. So let me work on this and I’ll get back to you with something you’ll like, or maybe even love. And if you hate it…
Just don’t tell me you do or I reserve the right to your first, second, or third born depending where you are in life.
Last thing. I mentioned that I’ve received a lot of positive feedback. If you’re one of the people that’s reached out to me or you read daily and think I’m contributing something to your day, please share my content with others. As a writer, that’s the best form of encouragement you can provide me. I’m not writing for clicks here, but don’t let my message go unheard if you found it worthwhile. Take a second and share it on FB, Twitter, or via one of the many list serves that keep you from getting work done during the day. Much appreciated in advance.
Other than that, have a great weekend. Things are on the up and up. I’ll see you on Tuesday!
P.S. Eff how cold it suddenly got when December 1st arrived. It’s body oil, shea butter, and intensive-care lotion season round hurr!
