No, We're Not Shutting Down - Just Upgrading

 

So I got this in the mailbox today:

I just discovered your site and really like this! I am sure it's not easy, but please continue this. I noticed no entries for December, 1 for january, and nothing since.

I hope you guys are not shutting this down. WE NEED THIS!!! ---Concerned WAOD Reader

We're still here and aren't going anywhere.

Yes, I should have made some type of announcement about our posting schedule. So here's the deal. We absolutely are creating behind the scenes :)

The internet looks a LOT different than it did 8 years ago, so I feel less compelled to speak out because everybody else is already doing it. Plus I think I've overdeveloped my "awareness" muscles. I know how to make people aware. Awareness isn't enough. I know how to call people out. I don't need more practice with that. I know how to send a verbal broadside. I don't need more practice doing that.

I need to compete for the hearts, minds and imaginations of young Black girls ( and boys) and I can't do that with a blog and nothing else.

So that's what I've been doing for the last 18 months or so - getting in competition shape.  Working on building up the muscles of "finishing discipline."

If you need a reagular dose of WAOD wisdom, follow our Facebook Fan Page. I post over there at least once a week, sometimes more.

On our Blog Anniversary, April 18, 2015 we'll be launching a new platform.

So if you want to keep up with WAOD posts:

Or just wait until Saturday, April 18th :)
