Okay maybe I’m not finished blogging…

I have been reading you guys’ comments and you have me thinking about resuscitating my blog. Here’s the thing: when I first started blogging (not on this blog but on diaryland) I wrote a lot about my personal life. Then somehow I found myself increasingly writing about issues with personal stuff thrown in here and there. Of course, I still have issues that I’d like to write about but I also have a lot of personal things going on my life. More than anything, I want to write about those issues. For some reason as I was strolling through the skyways, I started thinking, why not? Much of what I am dealing with are the very kind of issues that someone needs to give a voice to. Writing as always been therapeutic for me. I think I’ll give it a try, insha’allah.

What do you guys think? Is anybody still reading? (I need to hear from lurkers too).

  3. If you post it, I will read it

  4. New layout, eh???

    I think this is a great idea…I write for me; it helps me get through life. The fact that people read and respond is just icing on the cake.

  5. Salaams Sis:

  6. Lurker checking in. I’m hoping you stay in the blogging game!!

  7. Salaam alaikum,
    I was saddened to read that you were about to close up shop. Now there’s a little bounce in my step knowing you’ve reconsidered. I love your honesty and sharp insight. Please keep writing.

  13. ASA sis,

    Lady I have been following your blogs since back in the Diaryland days.:) You are a very talented writer and I have always enjoyed reading your work. Your blogs are also very helpful for reverts from the Diaspora as well. I’d strongly encourage you to keep it going; you truly inspire people with your words.

  16. Asalamu A’laikum Sis, I really like your style of blogging immensely interesting to read. I like your honesty ( even though I may not always agree with you on some issues) I think your blog is probably one of the best out there in terms of discussing social issues.

    Don’t leave us.

  17. assalam alaikum…

    as your #1 lurker (that didn’t even feel right to type)i am praying that you start back blogging again.. i really enjoy reading your post and the comments too… less facebook & more wordpress (smile!)

  19. Hello,
    I am so glad that you have decided to keep writing. I really enjoy your blog posts and you always seem to have a lot of wonderful, insightful things to say. I am glad that you found a wonderful partner and hope everything works out for you and you find the community you deserve (it seems you have to put up with far more than the fair share of haters and gossipers). Also, I hope things with your family members are working out and that you are doing better.
