What You Need to Know About North Carolina– The Sunset Edition
If you’ve noticed I’ve been absent for a couple of days, then you are right. It’s come time for me to suspend the daily blog portion of this site.
I started the daily blogs as an extension of my original online home, The Black Urbanist, to prove a point. Namely, that I could write something straightforward and without an agenda. At the time, I was working in a place where I didn’t agree with a lot of what was going on there and I felt like I couldn’t speak my mind properly. Eventually, I split this project off and many of you told me how much it made your day. I appreciate that and I wish I could continue writing this in good faith.
I can’t. I want to get back to writing The Black Urbanist full time, with a few North Carolina stories sprinkled in, but some others, from my new home in Kansas City and other places.
For those of you who only read this as a news source. I need to call you out. No, the mainstream media is not perfect and often has flaws. However, it doesn’t mean that it’s all bad. I don’t make up these stories, those people do. For what it’s worth, they still get paid to report things. I don’t and that makes a huge difference.
If anyone wants to take on this project of doing a daily newsletter via email and audio podcast, please let me know. In the meantime, after a sabbatical, I’ll be back to this space with a new format of stories and I invite you to join me back over at The Black Urbanist, for new blogs, a rebooted podcast and more stories from that vein.
Again, thanks for your support for this nearly two-year-old project, but I’m excited to be back to a stronger, more authentic way of expression online.
