I just moved into a new place and I’m kinda stuck here until I can get my own set of house keys. So while I’m here, I might as well do some blogging, right?
I like the idea of reintroducing myself to new folks that follow this blog. I’m copying this idea from my buddy and BGS co-host, Inda Lauryn (a.k.a. @cornerstonepress). Here’s her reintroduction post. Check it out. Inda’s awesome.
Okay, so who am I? Well, I go by Didi online (a.k.a. Didi Jenning, a.k.a. @dustdaughter/@iamdust, a.k.a. Pensacola Shakes). My day job involves IT and inventory and a lot of data entry. It’s not sexy but it (barely) pays the bills.
What I really love to do is write fiction and make podcasts. I have one out now called Black Girl Squee, hosted by the brilliant Inda Lauryn and myself. I’ve also done a show called C’s Up where my friend @mixaphorical and I talked about our favorite sport and our favorite team, the Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association. [Tangent 1: Yeah, I’m from Florida and my favorite team is from Boston. My dad loved Bill Russell and Bob Cousy and all the Celtics greats from back in the day. When I watch basketball with him, I grew to love the teams featuring Paul “The Truth” Pierce, Kevin “KG” Garnett, and Rajon Rondo.]
Another podcast I used to do was called A Bleek Outlook with Sean (a.k.a. @MasterAdept). [Tangent 2: Hey Sean, if you’re reading this, wanna do a podcast for the upcoming Luke Cage show on Netflix? Just an idea I had the other day.]
My main interests are writing, media (which includes music, books, blogs, podcasts, movies and TV), sports, mental health/self-care, and cuties of all genders. You’ll see a mix of all these things if you continue to follow this blog. I’m currently trying to finish several WIPs (works in progress) that are languishing in my Google Docs account. Meanwhile new plot bunnies keep hopping into my brain. It’s a struggle, I tell ya.
I like getting messages, especially from mutuals. My inbox is open but I’m keeping Anons turned off. I’ve turned Anon on a few times and I got crickets or fuckery in return.
Wait, Inda had plans in her post, so lemme think about some plans for 2016.
Dust’s Plans for 2016:
- Finish a few stories and maybe publish them on AMZ.
- Continue podcasting BGS with Inda and working to improve audio quality. Suggestions welcome!
- Maybe doing a 13-episode podcast covering the Luke Cage Netflix series. Find co-host.
- Maintaining a regular blogging schedule.
- Finding a new job that does more than barely pay the bills.
- Healing and maintaining mental health. That took a lot of hits in 2015.
Okay, I think that’s all for now. If I’m missing something in this introduction that you want to know, hit me up with some questions. Take care and thanks for checking me out. Also, thanks for not being a spam or porn blog!
