I can’t believe it!

I’ve stuck with this thing called blogging for two years and I’m still going strong! I can honestly say that I’m proud of my accomplishment because I can think of a few times when I almost gave up! When I published my first blog post in 2015, a state of euphoria took over me. I had finally come to do what I’ve wanted to do besides writing novels.

2 years later, and I am a lot more polished than I was back then. As a blogger who I still consider relatively new to the game, I have studied and nurtured my craft as a blogger and I will continue to do so. Since starting my blogging journey, I have changed the direction of this blog quite a bit, but those who are riding with me and have been since the beginning…y’all are the real MVPs. I will forever be grateful to my faithful readers who stuck with me through all the changes.

I’m in a position now where I can say I am content with the direction LN is taking. Less celebrity life and drama, more relatable and quality content. As I mentioned here, I changed the direction of my blog by getting rid of most of my content about celebrities/entertainment, because I felt I was drifting away from writing content that I felt was most important to my readers. I was also sucked into creating content that was scandalous in nature and emotionally exhausting because it gave me more hits than my light-hearted content. I no longer want to add to the destruction of black images on social media, and I feel it’s my responsibility to create quality content that reflects us more in a positive light.

So there you have it, beautiful people. As long as there is the internet, Lakia Nichole is here, with content that will continue to focus on what matters most to my readers. In the next year, my goal is to reach more of the masses as a content creator with my blog site, as well as contributing to other reputable sites.

As I said in my piece celebrating my 1st year, I am just a lady from Baltimore, Maryland that has a dream bigger than her nine to five as a dental assistant. My TRUE passion is writing. As an author who owns a small publishing company, I put writing novels on the back burner, so I could fully focus on blogging. I absolutely love blogging so much, I can’t even see myself doing anything else.

Thank you to my faithful readers and any one who opens a link, takes the time to read an article or two and shares my links on social media. It means a lot that you consider my material share-worthy.

I look forward to celebrating the 3rd year with you guys.
