Last month, I had contributed a piece to Candice’s Brown Girl Bloggers on the importance of finding your own voice in the blogosphere and earlier this week, kicked off Yetti’s latest blog series including my top OMG! moment and how I deal with public scrutiny as a personal blogger.Check out the snippets from both featured posts and catch the rest on these dope sites, in case you missed it.
“You should build a tribe of like-minded women who are looking into developing their brands and are struggling from the bottom like you are. You should drown yourself more in reading than you do in writing to heighten your jargon and your mindset, and you should most definitely look for inspiration for your work in the things that surround you… but here’s what you should not do.

How do you decide on what to share with the world? How do you protect yourself from public scrutiny?
“I’ve touched on this before, but I will only write about things I’m comfortable with and won’t feel resentment on later. Usually, I’ll blog about something when I’ve felt I’ve come to closure with it or if I’m on the verge of closure and writing about it, seals the deal. I think I take the word ‘personal’ in personal blogging to another level sometimes, but that’s something I’m comfortable with; to each his own. To answer the second half of your question, I’m firm believer that you can’t use what I’ve overcome, against me. If I put it out there, you can’t make me feel bad about it. It’s my truths that healed me, so trying to publicly hurt me? Try again.”
