It’s time for PGC Blog to say goodbye.
I started this blog in 2010, not long after moving here. All the PGCo blogs I could find were focused on corruption and crime. I was born and raised in DC and never knew much about this county. Yeah, I know that the boundary lines between DC and PGCo make us close cousins. Even so, I never ventured out here much. When I did become a resident, I started looking for the neighborhood blogs I’d become accustomed to in DC. What I found was online murder counts and doomsday predictors. I needed to create the blog I was seeking out. That’s how it started.
Now it’s ending. Time for me to write and create content in a different way that is more reflective of who I am now. Ya girl is not the same. We’ve all changed. I mean, we have survived and are surviving a pandemic. Then there was the violent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. These things have radically shifted my views on life and my priorities. I’m sure you all have come through this as different people, to say the least.
My hope is that the new content I create will connect with you. We’ll still explore Food News together. Political editorials will still abound, much to the dismay of some. I’m proud to have brought to light some political candidates that were not worthy of your support and some that were.
The new County Council is promising more resident-centric development, so I’ll keep my hyper-local eye focused on that too, but I will not and cannot cover the entire county unless I have a team. I want a team this time.
My next endeavor will be announced on the PGC Blog social media channels so be sure to follow me on Instagram, Twitter (for now), Tiktok (for now-legislation is afoot that could do away with the app in the U.S.) and Facebook. Shameless plug: I need a team of digital creators, writers, and technical producers who are divinely created to produce content that adds value, entertains, and inspires thought, happiness and dialog.
Here is the last paragraph. I’ve been supported, attacked, misconstrued, celebrated, and cursed. I would do it all over again. This county has become my community and I look forward to all the future blooms God has planted for me in this garden. To each person who has supported me, informed me and been kind to me along the way (and make no mistake, the way has not been easy here in Prince George’s County) I thank you; I appreciate you so much. I will see you soon. And to each of you who lurks in the shadows hoping I’ll just go away, I’m not. Do better.
Love goes good right here,
