How you doin’ gurl? Happy New Year!
Man it’s freaking 2017! Can you believe that? I sure as hell can’t. I mean it feels like it was 2016 just yesterday. Haaaaa! LOL But no seriously, have you noticed anything else different this year? Like my brand new blog layout? Nice ain’t it! LOL It better be, ’cause it sure as hell took a few days to put together. Shiiiiiddddd! But you know I had to take it up a notch for the new year. LOL And guess what? I did it all by my muhfudging self!
Got me feeling like ….
Now if you’re new around here, and you haven’t had the pleasure of seeing my blog when it was just a baby. (Because you know I just started this one up last February, and now it’s almost one year old.) Here’s what my blog used to look like. (You know, before I ran into technical difficulities a few days ago and said eff it and just changed the whole damn thang. LOL)
I actually thought this layout would last me for at least a few years because honestly I loved it. But a few days ago, I decided it was time to amp thangs up. I added a few new things to my blog and my old layout just wasn’t cutting it. Luckily for me I got this new layout for the low, low. LOL But listen, man was it a pain in the ass to fix!
Not that it was hard or anything (no sex puns intended there, lmao) but it just took a lot of time and effort to get it the way I wanted it. (Which meant I spent the last two days up until about 5am just working on my blog.) So yeah, I hope this ish pays off. LOL However, I didn’t just change the layout, I’m also changing a few other things, like the way my blog posts will look and the information my reviews will have. Plus I’m adding a few more blog series to the mix, like a:
This Shxt Dope series
Which is a product / service review series, where I give you the full scoop on how great [what ever] it was. And I’ll most likely answer all the questions you’ve been dying to have answered. But if I don’t, just know you can always reach out to me via social media or email and personally ask me yourself. (This series will happen 2x a month.)
The Girl Behind the Brand series
Which is an interview series that highlights amazing female business owners to get to know them a little bit better. Because sometimes we tend to get lost behind our brands and people forget that we’re still human. So if you know a “famous” business owner tell her I wanna holla at her. LOL (This series will happen 1x a month.)
Sanaa Rants series
Which is all about moi and my opinions on the latest trending topics, because sometimes I just need to rant and get it all out. And sometimes things happen that just leave me sitting there like W D F ? LOL So yeah, that’s where this good stuff will be. (This series will happen 1x a month.)
Listen I’m Grown series
Which is a series of blog posts that talk about what it’s like being a “real” adult, and all the grown up topics people tend to shy away from on their blogs. You know like: sex, drugs, alchohol. LOL (Don’t worry I don’t do drugs though. Hell I only take medicine when I’m on the verge of dying. Lol) You can read more about this series and why it was started right here. (This series will happen 1x a month.)
But how about this giveaway tho?
