Happy 1st Blogday!!!

So today is my happy 1st blogger birthday!!!! Man this is exciting for me...
as you all know i have been really hella busy and pretty stressed, so to actually take time out and reflect on my life, and this blog in particular is just what the doctor ordered...


Let's see i started a year ago today, yes I actually looked up my first blog entry...the person that got me into this was Mikesee...i was always reading his blog and commenting and figured that i had something to say....so i thought about it and decided ok, you know what TC its time...let's blog...


over the past year and 205 entry's i have discovered that i am a lot stronger than i thought, i have a lot more faith than i thought, i am wiser than i thought, cooler than i thought...you know i can honestly say that this blog has been a release for me and has truly helped me to grow...

the past 3 or so years have been really ones of growth for me...and sometimes with growth there are a lot of growing pains...but you know what...it is what it is and it will be what it will be...and i am honestly ok with who i am and where i am going...so all and all life is pretty good you know...

so as i sit and think about my past year...here are some of my favorite blogs that come to mind, in no particular order....

Pursuit of Happyness

around the way gurl

in the ghetto

Unbelievable


I guess its also extremely fair to say that a lot of my growth has come from the relationships that have been established in blog land...so I shall run down my people's....



A woman on the move: what can i say about you...i know i love to read your honest and wit...you are sharp, smart secure and sexually aware...i can't remember how i came to your spot...probably sufferin, but man am i glad to know you-i've learned a whole lot of things from yousistah


blu: what can i say, i think i found you through jus or jac, either way I am happy i did...you are always dropping and knowledge and encouraging me...and you spit that real truth...love it...


b.m.w.: new to the list, found you through jac, and glad i did...you works are beautiful and its good to get the point of view from a brotha from time to time


constantly inconsistant: the person i stole this idea from...i found you through jus and wanted to check you out...what can i say, you are a strong, smart little sis...the artistic expression, your drive, you remind me a lot of me when i was in undergrad...keep pushing...just keep pushin


danger: another brotha on the list...i love the way you write and express yourself-i love your persepctive on a lot of things, ummmm can we say male version of me, well in some aspects of life at least right....


dat MF: another brotha, new to the blog list, and funny as all get out....HENCE the reason he is listed...


dc_speaks: new to the crew, but i can already tell you gonna be dropping that knowledge


Deepnthought: you have a beautiful tender spirit, not to mention, your family stories are OFF the HOOK and remind me of my own...its your honestly and openness that keeps me coming back for more


e.: (i just realized i have more brothers on here than i thought) i love your "remember when" and "dime lines" you are so honest and open and candid...love it...and of course of love the rotation on the blog...gots to love the music


GMo: you are like that older cool brotha that makes you laugh, but drops that knowledge without even trying to, its just in what you say, you do, you drop it...


honey: my baby...i love following your life and watchin you grow and how things are turning out...i love your honesty and how you share, the good the bad and the ugly...but you still seem to keep a smile on your face...most importantly every week you remind me why I should know i am blessed-i love it!


HonorableMedia: new hotness...music whatever, this is where you go to hear the new stuff


it is what it is: my sistah! my twin in so many ways....we are so extra and dramatic! HA! i love the way you write and express yourself...i love how you let us into your thoughts and how you feel, that's BIG...so thank you for that...& thank you for hooking us up with the latest gossip ALL THE TIME


learning me & loving it: the title says it all...another one of my sistah's that joined and i am grateful for it because i get to see into her thoughts, her heart...


JAC: wow! what can i say about you...well let's see the blog actually let's me keep up with you (being that you are 3000 miles away), it lets me know your thoughts, and lets me read your writing...so i don't feel so far away from you...you also got me hooked on so many of the blogs listed...so Thank you!


Jus: my BIG SIS!!!! man....its a true sistahood thang too, you know...we bonded off the break, and when you say you will always be there you will...you start my weeks off with prayer and you let me wonder how come and you always make me laugh...you are beyond words...THANK YOU for all you do....


KC: who knew?! who knew your little butt was as funny as you are...you don't talk to much, so half the time i have NO idea what so ever what you are thinking...but when i read your blog i get to look into that crazy mind of yours...and man is it funny as hell!


MikeSee: my brother...what can i say about you....ummmm....you always offer the male perspective and you always keep us up to date on music, movies, and most of all consciousness...you are the reason i started this all...and man am i thankful!


Noblestone: lil brotha kep...always aware always conscious always willing to start the debate...stay focused man, stay strong...stay true to yourself


teej: dude you crazy, you know that...i look forward to my weekly list, i look forward to your comments...another conscious guy that is always willing to let the sistah's know the real deal...gotta love the chi


urbanbuttefly: i lov lov lov your work...your words speak to me, every single time i come to your page i think i am going through something just like it or similar or something....thank you for sharing your words with the world....


To all of you i don't know how i found half of you, either by one of my core bloggers or something like that...but i truly appreciate you coming into my world and letting me into yours...for me its all about being around positive people and learning and growing and Gold Time of Day, definitely helps me to do that...I love this blog! What it stands for, what it does for me, and hopefully what it does for you too...its been a helva year and i look forward to growing and sharing for many more to come!

Peace, love, happiness...and all that jazz
