Hey there Blerdy Tribe, man has it been a crazy year… and yes, I am still working from home. Is it too late to just count 2020 as a loss and jump to 2021? July was a bit of a mixed bag for me since I spent most of the month dealing with an ongoing leak that caused severe damage to my ceiling. Which was just one more reason for me to find a new apartment and blessing of all blessings I was approved for a great new place and I’ll be out of this hell hole come September!!
There were of course some positives in July: I was invited to participate in a round-table discussion with fellow black creatives over on the Manga Mavericks’s podcast! I had a blast talking with some truly talented individuals and it was great swapping stories and just all around having a great time. (I’ll share the link when the episode goes live). I’m also one of three hosts in an upcoming podcast… but, the details of that are a bit hush hush for the time being, so stay tuned for that!
August brings with it more fun opportunities and the 5th Anniversary of this blog!! So, before we dive in to the new stuff, let’s take a bit to look back at the month of July here on Blerdy Otome!!

Hey there Blerdy Tribe, there’s no denying that 2020 has been a bit of a bummer and this is only the halfway point… but, I’ve taken this time to kick my ass in gear and really revitalize things here at Blerdy Otome. In the past, I’ve had a pretty lax approach to blogging which isn’t especially conducive to much growth. So, I’m making an effort to be more social, something I have struggled with a lot—I’m not the most outgoing person IRL…I get super anxious about reaching out to people for the first time (I tend to wait for people to reach out to me first). But, I’ve been reaching out more to people online, and I’ve met some super nice people!
I did a Instagram live with Blaque N’ Kulture that was super fun and we’re even working on a fun new project that I think you guys will love! Lizzo from Soulcial Dreamers Entertainment invited me to do an interview for their site and I am still in shocked that she thinks I’m cool enough for a feature. Heck, I hiked up a mountain this month!! Despite everything going on in the world right now, I’ve been making small strides and I want to thank you all for sticking with me over the years! So, let’s look back at the month of June here on Blerdy Otome!!

Hey there Heroes, Travelers, and Wandering NPCs another month has come and gone, and with it 2020 continues to be the gift that keeps on giving. Many of us are still at home as COVID-19 continues to rages on and now the unnecessary murders of black people at the hands of those sworn to protect has major cities all across the country in an uproar.
It’s a emotional time for us here in the States and it’s just further evidence that things need to change. So, it is with that backdrop that we say goodbye to the May, a tumultuous month in an already difficult year. And, with that said, lets look back on the month here at Blerdy Otome.

Hey Hey Heroes, Travelers, and Wandering NPCs~ 2020 marks the beginning of a new decade and yet, I don’t think anyone would have anticipated the absolute sh*t show this year has turned into. It’s been one thing after another since January and now many of us are just waiting for things to settle down.
With the stay at home orders in place in the DMV, I’m spending a lot more time at home, which has given me more opportunities to write. Nothing like a pandemic to get the creative juices flowing… I think this is the most active I have been in a long time and I’m having fun coming up with new content and checking out other blogs. Since there’s so much more content now, it’s finally time for me to revive my recap posts. If you’ve been following me for awhile, you probably remember my old Last Week Today post. This is the same concept, just much more condensed—doing a weekly recap was just a bit overwhelming, but I think this format will be much easier to manage each month. So let’s get this show on the road and look back at the month of April here on Blerdy Otome!
