What do you make of this, #Torches!
As of last week (December 16), this corner of the Blackness internet is officially three years old! This means on December 17th we are officially lighting the way towards year four.
Four years, Torches!
This is unbelievable–when I started this journey? I had no idea what I was doing, who would read it, like it or follow this space. This space still exists because y’all are here for it. This space, unapologetically Black, encouraging, humorous and sometimes–as the lovely Angela Rye says– sophistiratchet.
Thank you, dearest ones.
Thank you for the support. Thank you for the follows, the retweets and shares. Thank you for everyone that believed in me, whom follows me. Thank you to my amazing staff: Shauncea, Rebecca and Meisha. I cannot do any of this without you.
And to you, my #Torches–Thank you is not sufficient. You all are amazing, handsome, gifted, beautiful, and completely worthy of all good things! In year 4?
Expect the unexpected.
We haven’t even hit the stride yet. Read. Share. Tell a friend. Why? Friends don’t let friends go through life without being a Firestarter.
Ready or Not, Here We Come!
