A great post to let you know what I was thinking about Mr. C in the early stages of us dating. It was new. He was nice. But, looks aren’t always what they appear to be. Check this post out… Source: Him

Just Me

I want to welcome my new followers. This blog is a collection of my thoughts, dreams, aspirations, parenting, social and dating experiences. My high horse journalistic point of view. I blog about things that affect me as a mom, woman, black person, Christian, etc or just topics that I find interesting.

So, I thought I would tell you a few things about me:

  • I’m a feminist. Black feminist. Why do I say a black feminist? Because I’m black and a feminist. I support the equality of women, but I can’t help but feel that black women have continually been left out of the movements in which we support. I want to change that.

  • I’m a mom to a beautiful boy who helps me to realize that my life matters more because I have him looking up to me. He’s 7. He speaks French. He loves soccer. He’s not athletic. He’s still innocent. He hasn’t been tarnished by the “real” world yet.

  • I love sci-fi and Prince. Yep, it’s a weird combination and some would say that I’m nerdy. Probably. But, honestly you can’t go wrong with an episode of The Walking Dead and screaming “I would die for you” at the top of your lungs.

  • I am a woman of faith and that faith is the foundation of everything in my life. You may see me write a post about church or God to remind folks to appreciate the awesomeness of God and being able to express that love. I have a wonderful church that I’ve attended for the last 25 years and I thank God daily that my son was blessed and baptized in my home church. My munch even sings in the church choir.

  • I’m a southern girl. Born and raised. I love pork, but won’t eat a lot of fried foods (think high cholesterol). I love tea but will drink it unsweetened instead of the typical sweet tea (think diabetes). But, my attitude is friendly and I have a southern accent with a southern mentality.

So welcome and enjoy and please feel free to comment. I love the interaction from fellow bloggers. I am truly grateful that you chose to follow me.

My First Liebster Award

Hey Ya’ll!

I was nominated for a Liebser Award by Sandy at Poot’s Notes. I’m super excited because I love the blogger community and anything designed to strengthen and grow my followers is a blessing. We are truly a village encouraging each other in this quest for world domination. LOL! No, seriously it helps that we respect the craft and want to help each other grow our blogs.

The Liebster Award recognizes bloggers who have less than 200 followers. I only have 106 as of today, but thankfully I’m growing so I qualified. Yeah!

Okay, the rules are:

1 – Thank the person who nominated you and link to their blog.

2 – Answer the 10 questions given by the nominator.

3 – Nominate and link 10 bloggers (with less than 200 followers).

4 – Notify all the bloggers you’ve nominated.

5 – Create 10 new questions for your nominees to answer.

So, here are the questions I have to answer:

1. What is your dream destination?

Fiji. I love the beach and clear blue water and can’t wait to visit.

2. If you could have one dream come true, what would it be?

To end hunger in America. Many people in this country experience food shortages and I’m keenly aware of this issue. It pains me to think about children going to bed hungry.

3. Are you an animal lover?

Yes. I love dogs.

4. What is your favorite book?

Assata by Assata Shakur. Changed my life in college.

5. What is the one thing you would change about yourself and it can be anything, or nothing?

I would change the way I viewed relationships and marriage. I used to initially view marriage as an archaic form of slavery. LOL! Thankfully, that has changed.

6. If you had a million dollars, what would you do with it?

Give 30% to the government for taxes. Give my church 10% in the form of an educational endowment. Invest 50%. Buy a house. Travel and still work. Munch wouldn’t have to worry about college.

7. What is your favorite thing about blogging?

Being able to share my life with people.

8. Do you have any celebrity friends?

I know people who are celebrities that I went to high school with. However, everyone is a celebrity in my book.

9. What is one personal goal?

To reduce my debt.

10. What is your favorite meal to cook?

Spaghetti. My son loves it.

Thank You from the Bottom of My Heart

So, yesterday I finally got 100 followers to my blog.

100-followers

 

I am super excited. Since I changed my platform from Blogger to WordPress last July the growth has been S-L-O-W. But, I thank each of you from the bottom of my heart for following A Thomas Point of View.

Not only has this blog grown in leaps and bounds in the last year, but me too. I’ve written more, shared more and grown more. Some things I did in the last year…I created a custom logo based off my actual photo, published pieces on other blogs, transferred to a new platform, bought my own domain and started writing two books. All of this while working full-time and being a mommy. Growth.

Although it may be slow by most people’s standards, I am overwhelmingly blessed and thankful for each and every milestone. I want to enjoy it, appreciate it and respect it. Everything happens in time.

So, thank you for following. Thank you for engaging. Thank you for just being you. You’re awesome!

P.S. I got another follower today. I’m at 101.
