This is my first official blog post. Woo hoo!! I’ve decided to step out of my comfort zone to try something new. I’m hoping that this will be a therapeutic and enjoyable experience. My blog will be like me; eccentric, random, and all over the place. Picking a particular topic to focus the blog on was difficult. Instead, I’m sharing my views on the things I adore.
First a little insight about the blog’s name, Divinely Bossome. Divine (divinely) means of God, or excellent. Bossome (boss+awesome) is a term I came up with during a low point in my life. I’d just graduated from a Medical Assistant school, and I couldn’t find a job to save my ass. In order to keep my spirits lifted, I used positive adjectives to describe myself. Bossome was born and it became my battle cry.
Now on to some of the things I’ll be blogging about. I wouldn’t want to live in a world without books. Reading is my Xanax, I swear! My favorite genres are horror, contemporary fiction, erotic romance, some sci-fi, interracial romance, biographies, urban fiction, paranormal romance, and I love poetry books.
Being such a passionate reader has helped my writing tremendously. I’m a writer and it brings me both ecstasy, and sometimes agony. I’m working on my first novel… and it will be done in 2016. I’m so claiming that! Honestly, I should’ve been done awhile back, but my original draft was so mediocre. Thankfully, with a little help, and a ton of prayer, I have some amazing things happening. Also in 2016 I’m going to self-publish a volume of poetry. My enthusiasm for poetry was reignited this year. I’ve been reading work by some incredible poets; both in print and online. Did y’all know that there are some bossome poets on Tumblr?! Who knew? Expect plenty of posts about this writing journey of mine.
I’m obsessed with TV shows, films, and music, which will be blogged about. Here are just a few of my favorites. TV: The Walking Dead, How To Get Away With Murder, and The Twilight Zone. Films: Notorious(a Hitchcock classic), Goodfellas, and New Jack City. Fav artists/bands: Meshell Ndegeocello, Tool, Alice In Chains, Janet Jackson, and I’ll force myself to stop with Deftones. I could go on, but this is supposed to be a small introduction.
Fragrances, cosmetics, and clothing will be blogged about on the reg(regular). I’ll most likely do reviews or something. Food wise I’ll talk about treats that everyone must try. And you have to trust a full figured woman’s food picks. I know good food!
Since I’m a proudly single woman, you better believe dating, relationships, and sex will be on the blogging menu. Although, I’m not currently doing any of those things at the moment. Lol. That’s why my erotic romance reading is something serious.
I’m going to be sharing a bit about a few health issues. My hope-and purpose, is to help someone else out. There’s strength in numbers, and it’s comforting when you meet individuals who can relate to your health drama.
Lastly- but most importantly, I plan to blog about my faith/spirituality. I’m a flawed woman who is thankful for the grace of God. I’m not going to be preachy, but I will be totally frank about my Christian walk. I’m the first to say that I don’t get a lot right, but I’m trying. Sometimes I mix a little humor in when talking about being a Christian. Jesus came for folks like me because I’m a hot mess! 😀
So, that’s my intro. Thanks for reading. Cheers, homies! Okay, I should mention that I’m a Texan, but I love me some British slang/terms. 🙂
