Movin’ and Shakin’

1964847_10152938199313957_45631041219715969_nI have some big life changes coming up in the next month or so, changes that are taking me away from the city that has become part of my blood. I am excited, elated for the changes coming my way and for the growth that I know I will experience but leaving a place that has shaped my entire being the way in which New Orleans has is difficult. I have every intention to keep blogging from wherever I am, but nolafeminizer will likely be taking on much broader topics. I’d love for input and possible guest bloggers, especially those still in the New Orleans area.

New Year, More Writing… Hopefully

5 Jan

It has come to my attention that I need to refocus my energies on my writing, especially on this blog. With a new year upon us I figure there is no better time than now to do so. On that note, I would love to get some feedback from you, my readers on what types of things you would like me to write about this year. More New Orleans centered news? Pop culture related events? Political issues? I am here for you after all. And I may be facing some writers block… 

So let me know! I am looking forward to putting out a weekly blast every Thursday morning this year, so look for it!
