Blog Transition

IMG_3558It has been nearly 6 years since I last posted to this blog. I am feeling so nostalgic right now as I type away. I was literally updated my computer and something urged me to log in and honestly I thought I deleted this blog years ago. It really took me back to read over my blogs from the first to the last. It speaks a lot about each experience I have had over the years both good and bad.

Well, fast forward 6 years and I am still happily married to my childhood sweetheart. We have had two beautiful daughters and have had multiple family pet additions to our house. It is well over due to revive this blog. I have a new vision for this blog as 2018 comes to a close.

I will continue to blog about controversial topics but will not merely focus on that. The purpose of this blog is to share with you my life in black & white beyond color; beyond race. I will be sharing my opinion on current events/issues, along with my travel stories and fitness journey.

I am always open to topic suggestions my email is always open.

Thank you all for continuing this blogging journey with me.

What encouraged me to start blogging?

Growing up I always felt like no one understood me or could to relate to me. I had one friend that I met that was also biracial but I felt that it was still something that separated us. In my opinion she identifies more with her black side, unlike me who feels like I am equally both black and white. It was hard not having someone who could share the same experiences with you. During the time I began blogging there weren’t many sites for biracials to share and speak out on their experience.

I reached an epiphany when I discovered Tiffany Jones youtube channel and wordpress blog, Mulatto Diaries. For once I found a stranger who shared the same experience and had some of the same feelings toward racial issues as me. Watching her videos made me feel like she was a friend to me. Someone who spoke up and spoke out to those biracial individuals with no voice. At the time and even now the resources available for biracials are limited. The biracial community is small. I encourage others to create a blog of sort to speak out to others. I remember feeling lonely as if no one shared the same Biracial experiences with me until finding Tiffany Jones vlogs & blog. The small and limited biracial community encouraged me to write because I wanted to leave footprints on the internet for young biracials that may feel lost and alone. I write down my opinions and personal experience so the lost ones can feel found.

Through personal growth I have come to realize that despite culture and races separating us we are more alike than ever. As different as we all may feel, we are alike. We are human. We eat, sleep, cry, smile and breathe all the same.

Until next time . . .
