Hi New Followers!

Whew! One of my pieces blew up!

I just wanted to write a quick note to welcome all of my new followers. If you want to learn a little bit more about me, feel free to read my profile in Writers and Editors of Color. My hair has gone from turquoise to red though.

The number of responses I received on my piece, “Dear White Women: Here’s Why It’s Hard to Be Friends With You” has been overwhelming. While I have responded to some of the comments at the beginning, I’m now finding myself unable to keep up with them all. However, I do try to at least read all of them, as I do appreciate receiving feedback on my writing.

The majority of comments I received have been positive, or they’ve been insightful — providing me with constructive criticism. I’ve also had a handful of people who got offended and chose to attack or insult me on a personal level. Them, I automatically block, alongside those who make racist and/or sexist comments. I also either block or mute trolls, depending on my mood. I refuse to waste any time or energy on people whose only intent is to drain it.

However, I’ve received way more of the good than the bad. Thank you so much to all of you who took the time to read my writing. Hopefully, you will enjoy my future pieces as well!

Have a good weekend!
