My Blogging Break is Over! (:

I am bringing my break from blogging to an end. I really have missed blogging about racially impacting events and topic. Over the past several months, I needed to take time out. Now, I am back and ready to get back to what I enjoy the most, blogging. I really have missed the Biracial community.

One of the reasons why I became uninspired to blog was because of the absence of Mulatto Diaries, Tiffany Jones in our Biracial Community. It was because of Tiffany Jones, that I jumped in to voice my opinion of growing up as a biracial individual. Since Tiffany has been absent on her youtube channel and blog for Mulatto Diaries, I grew uninspired. I really enjoyed watching and reading her delightful incities on various topics. 

I hope that Tiffany Jones comes back to the Biracial Community and gets back to blogging and uploading videos. Until then, I will try my best to post an update or article once or twice a week to begin with. Striving for a daily post a day, if school permits. I have to manage my time wisely and devote dedication where it is needed. 

Look forward to a new post soon. (:

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 . . .

HAPPY NEW YEAR IN ADVANCE! — UPDATE

Blogging Family,

Here is an update:  I didn’t get my flu shot this year so obviously with my luck I did catch the flu. It was the worst couple of weeks of my life! =/ On top of that afterwards I caught a little common cold. I am feeling better now. I can guarantee that I will make it a priority to get my flu shot each year!

I hope you all have been doing well. I have been a bit discouraged since Biracial Tiffany doesn’t make videos or update her blog Mulatto Diaries anymore. It’s a bit depressing. I really enjoy reading others blogs about the Biracial and mixed experience. If you know of any blogs for me to check out, feel free to comment below with a link.

 

Hopefully with this new year approaching I will get the courage to start making videos for my youtube channel. Otherwise my new year resolution is to set some time out for myself so i can tend to my blog. (: I am sure my readers would like that.

What is your new year resolution?

Any Ideas?

Writer’s Block.

I hope all has been well with my Biracial and Cultural Family. Long time no blog. =/ To say the least, I am back. =)

There has been so many controversial issues that have been lingering in my head for a few weeks now. What better way to vent, than to blog?

I began blogging as a therapeutic venture. The online Biracial Community is who inspired me. Such as Heidi Durrow and Fanshen Cox of Mixed Chicks Chat. Also, Tiffany Jones of Mulatto Diaries. It was like heaven opened up when I found the Biracial Community online. For once in life, I felt connected. I have never been able to relate to anyone, until i found this lovely community. It was then when i realized that I am not the only Biracial girl that has been through some adverse mixed chick experiences.

I appreciate everyone for your constant support.

Thank You.
