Hey Dolls!!!! It’s been a LOOOOOOOONG time, I know. I actually tried to sit down and do an update/explanation post back in December, and….welp…it just didn’t happen. LOL It’s still sitting in the drafts half done.
Life has been good y’all. Extremely busy, but good. So busily good that I just haven’t had time to sit down at this here computer and just get my thoughts, creative ideas, and fashion posts out there. Admittedly, this has made me feel frustratingly unfulfilled in a way. I LOVE writing about fashion, beauty, lifestyle stuff, and occasionally my family. But I also have to make this here paper.
The reason why my posts abruptly stopped last March and you didn’t hear a peep from me after, was because I got hired at yet another local tv station. The hitch was that my schedule for my first….7/8 months on the job was as brutal is my schedule at my LAST station. Overnights, 3am-11am, AND it was 40 minutes door to door. It was wonderful for me from a learning/career/coint making standpoint, stunk from a momma/wife/blogger standpoint,
Y’all, I was exhuasted. It also didnt help that I no longer have my partner in blogging crime, Sherica to back meh up. So I had to neglect my blog and my blogging family. It was either the blog, or even less time with Jeff and Twyla, and I just couldn’t do that. Another thing that was holding me back was a local crook that I dropped my computer off to be repaired at, STOLE AND RESOLD MY LAPTOP Y’ALL. Long story short, he’s since been arrested, but I had NOTHING to download and edit on for a YEAR.
I work at another news station now, and my shift is MUCH better (9am to 6pm…aint God good?), but the drive is still a hike. However, I can get back into blogging, if I so desire, and I do.
Blogging brings me so much joy. For me, its more than a way to make money, which is where I see many blogs and YouTube channels going (which by the way is awesome), and more about just making friends in different places and connecting with all y’all in a way that is unique to US.
So, with all that said, I am going to have to re-purpose this site. Lots has changed since Sherica and I started this blog back in May 2009. I’m tearing up just thinking about it. Y’all have seen me through more than YT ever did. I’m grateful for that. You’ve seen me get wifed it, knocked up, moved across the country, switch careers. You’ve been there for it all.
I want to continue this journey with y’all, but I can’t do it as a duo. Sherica is doing great things in her life professionally and personally, and now this site is solely mine. I’ve gotta re-frame and refresh. I hope that you guys will continue to follow me as I transform the site, and Facebook page from Shatterproofglassdolls to Tea With Taneica.
Now, you’ll still see Sherica from time to time, but I am dusting off this blog and breathing new life into her. You’ll still be getting your natural hair care tips, makeup reviews, and fashion lookbooks. But I want to get back to celebrating YOU. I want this to be a place where you can come and be empowered and inspired. This transition is going to take a few months and lots of patience, but if you stick with me, I promise to make it worth your while.
If you’ve gotten to the bottom of this post, thanks so much for sticking with me. Thanks so much for coming by and checking up on us. This site isn’t just for me, its for ALL of us. What would YOU like to see on Tea With Taneica? Leave me some suggestions below!
