I've briefly come back on here to let those of you who still read this blog know that I've moved over to Wordpress. I wrote a whole post about it which you can check out here.

Here is the link to my new blog which is now called She Stands Firm.

Thanks again to those who still choose to read this blog even though I don't post on here anymore. I spent many wonderful years on Blogger but I've grown and matured in my writing now and wanted a change. My new blog champions the voices of women of colour. Hope to see you over there!

Why I've Moved Over To Wordpress


By the time you're reading this, I would have already made the great move from 'Blogger' to 'Wordpress'. I wanted to use this post to explain the  reason behind my decision.
Trust me- it wasn't an easy one.


Google owns your 'blogger' account 

This is pretty self explanatory, since Google owns your blogger account you're not completely in control. It seems like you are but when it comes down to it, Google could really easily delete your account if they wanted to. There was always just a lot to deal with in terms of HTML which I thought was a normally thing but now know that it doesn't have to be. I also just use Wordpress for my art blog and I've really been enjoying using that. I feel like there's just more on offer, and I want to explore something new.


So, I've been writing blogs on Blogger since 2013 now and I am honestly sad to let it go. But I'm also extremely excited to work on my new blog and go in a new direction. I've grown and developed so much since 2013, and I can't wait for you to see what I have in store!

This isn't a goodbye, it's a see you in my new blog, haha

If You Have A Voice, Speak.


 

As women, we have been silenced since long before I can remember. Female authors were encouraged to publish their work anonymously. Female artists have a harder time getting their work displayed in shows/ exhibitions. Especially black female artists. But I’ll save my thoughts on that for another time. If you have a voice, speak. Don't you know that your voice alone can raise up many. Don't you know that it forces existence itself to acknowledge you. Be the mouthpiece for the silenced ones. Speak, and you'll encourage those who are too frightened to use their voices. 
Don’t hesitate to speak out, for it is when you are brave that you will learn and  advance in life. Imagine what a difference you can make if you’d just ask those big bold questions. If you were not afraid to stand your ground.
As you speak, be the voice you believe we need in this world, and become the person you aspire to be. Speak up, say what you think, and dare to challenge the consensus. Use your voice, take that risk, and have the courage to believe in what you say. Even when people tell you authorise, stick to your vision. 
In spite of whatever may come against, persist.
