More About The Writer
Sorry everyone, the three hour time difference has my mind playing tricks on me. Right now, it’s not even noon over here in Cali, but I know back in New York, where I’m usually blogging, it’s already going on 3 p.m.
That being said, instead of racing the clock, trying to give everyone something before 5 p.m. EST (2 p.m. PST), I’m going to hit you all with a couple of links to things I did outside of the blog over the last week..
But before I even get into that, I want to encourage all of you to go pick up the latest issue of ESSENCE magazine. Page 62, bottom right-hand page, you will see a brief write-up about Until I Get Married. I want to thank Demetria Lucas, Relationships Editor at ESSENCE for her continued support. And of course, I also want to thank all of you, the readers.
Yes Demetria and I are cool people outside of the work place, but trust me, she didn’t give me the ESSENCE look just because we’re friends. She did it because she saw how many of you all continue to support my work. I have a lot of friends in real life who support my blog, and every time I see them face-to-face I make sure to thank them, but to all the people I have never had the good fortune of meeting in the real world, let me extend a special thanks to all of you. All the emails, Facebook friend requests, Twitter shout-outs, and comments mean a lot to me, and I will continue to work hard for all of you. The way I see it, we’re in this together. My writing, your reading, both are labors of love and I can’t think of a better way to reward your patience and support than continuing to come up with the type of content that make you all mad, happy, laugh, seethe, and eye-roll. Things like this:
One day this will all pay off, I will be a big deal, and all of my readers will see me on TV or the page of a magazine and say, “Pssshhhh, I stopped reading Jozen a long time ago. He got too Hollywood, but he used to be good.” Or something else along those lines.
Thank you a million times over. See you all next week.
