What’s up, y’all?
First off, allow me to apologize for my close to inactive month in February. Including this post, I only did a total of 6. I was busy trying to take care of personal matters as well as professional. I didn’t planned out my thoughts probably, which caused me to post lack of quality posts.
My first misfire was treating a Obama/Bush Family Link as current news. SOHH, which inspired the post, isn’t a place where you want to get the latest political news, which is something I do cover from time-to-time… just not all the time. Usually when I do cover things, it’s after a lot of thought.
The second misfire was the Chris Brown/Rihanna post. Usually, I don’t write gossip-generating posts (at least not to my present knowledge). I talk cold, hard facts. However, the idea of “Thought Remixer” is basically to take a stand and attempt to argue a point, even if it means playing “the bad guy”. I had a nice concept in my head (playing PR for Chris Brown) which was poorly executed with sloppy research. My post rubbed some people the wrong way and they countered it to the point that I lost interested in the Chris Brown/Rihanna situation. While I’m sure I can’t promise I won’t do that again, I apologize if I sounded like I’m covering for Chris Brown, which I’m clearly not. As of today, I refused to comment further on this story until after all the smoke is cleared. I have a lot more the say about this issue, but feared that it will get lost if I say something at the present moment.
Anyway, with that being said, I want to announce a few things.
- I’ve been approached to bring exclusive interviews to Thought Remixer. I’m still crossing some t’s and dotting some i’s, but I promise you this: Things will get interesting. Keep in mind that the interviews will be done my way. So, expect dramatics.
- There will actually be NEW music coming to the blog. Since I cover black music and music in general, I’m not pigeon-holed to hip-hop. I got hookups.
- I’m redesigning this site with my own two hands. I’m not as inspired to post with this layout (even thought I finally fixed it), but more importantly, I’m a designer. I should have this site to reflect my own style, not just the header. This redesign should be finish any day now.
- Finally, because some people asked for it, I’m launching a business/getting money advice blog. I will be launching a new blog in the next few days. I already have a bit of content from rejected (but really good) articles I’ve done for other sites that will premiere on the new freelancer site. Expect a lot of “cross posts”.
Lastly, I promise to learn from the lessons of past. Yes, this is still a personal blog, but it’s really a personal “brand”. Y’all expect better from Nukirk and you will get better. Well, I will get better and you will enjoy it. Well, I’ll get… no… that don’t sound right. Dammit, you know what I mean!
Thanks for your time!
(Yeah, yeah, it’s just me.)\
P.S. – So why not Black History Posts? If you don’t know me, I covered my reasons on this last year. I’m sorry in advanced for the grammar errors you’ll see there.
