So... today is the last day of Black Music Month and I participated in this challenge by Naima Cochrane. I shared the challenge with friends and one, Portia, decided to up the level of difficulty and say that we could not repeat artists. I had already done day 1, but still felt confident in my...

Monetizing My Anxiety
Okay... some days it seems that my whole life is a struggle and I think I have finally found the answer. I am going to monetize my anxiety. Let me take a moment to explain something.

HGTV Anonymous – Where is that meeting?
Is there a such thing? I mean what would we do in that meeting other than talk about and watch HGTV shows? Because if that is the case then I am totally there! I love watching and have been watching for years. I think my addiction began with Trading Spaces on TLC. Before that I... Continue Reading →
