Soooo, today I received a notification that I’ve been blogging for 9 years now.
When I began blogging I had no intention of hanging around this long. I just wanted a place to air out the voices in my head.
I’ve met some fabulous people in the blogging world.Sadly, most of them no longer blog and I miss tuning into their blog posts. But I totally get how they gave up the ghost and put it away. I’ve thought about doing it many times.

I can’t lie, it’s been a “struggle bus ride” for the last few years. Blogging has become the dinosaur of social media. Everything is so fast paced today that no one really wants to read a bunch of paragraphs.
Give them a video, a bunch of pictures and a few tweets and they are good to go.
I don’t think I’ll ever totally give up this space though. I like having a quiet spot to call my own to air those voices out. I probably won’t have much of a following, but that’s fine with me.
I never did have a bunch of people over here and it made those who did tune in, more special to me.
I’ll be back.
And I’m going old-school…blogging about whatever crosses my mind.
HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY TO ME!!
Thanks for being here.
I know this blog post is late like a big dawg, but so much has been going on that it’s getting really hard to keep this ole’ dinosaur afloat. Bare with me y’all. I’m trying to come up with ways to keep this blog from biting the dust. We’ll discuss more of that later. I had to put out some pics of the Nyx Myx Masquerade Ball which was held in January.
Since so many nyx sisters and future nyx sisters come to the blog looking for pics of events, I had to put out some pics of the Nyx Myx Masquerade Ball which was held in January.
We had a new venue this year. The ball was held at the Convention Center and the last thing anyone can say is that they didn’t have room because…WE DID. It was beautifully decorated and spacious. The Captain looked stunning as always and Goddess Nyx VI is the beautiful Zenia Williams.
I do miss the Hilton, but we’ve outgrown her. I’m looking forward to getting as acquainted with the new venue as I was with the old one.
After the 3 course dinner, we danced the night away. I had a wonderful time. I should have taken a picture of my shoes because I have officially given up on wearing heels to the ball. I walk around and dance entirely too much so I purchased a pair of blinged out sneakers to wear. They felt like slippers! They were sooo comfy. I don’t believe in suffering for the cause. My dress will by fly, but I won’t wear heels and dance for hours on end…nada.
Here are a few pics of the ball. I love going to the ball…it’s my favorite event.
