Why I Need Your Help

Searching For My Star, Where Reality & Fantasy Get Confused
Thanks for being here. Thanks for continually visiting even when you don't like the content. Thanks for liking the content. Thanks for not spamming Searching For My Star with comments coming from Blue Ivy's Hair, Jay William's 18th Baby Mama, Ray Rice's Side Chick, or Getyourlife. Then again, thanks for the inboxes and sometimes twitter interactions so I know that you are there and are paying attention. I appreciate it all.

If a picture speaks 1,000 words then a blog has to speak at least a million. Over the past five years I've continually wrote, researched and struggled with how to bring in new viewers. It's not about the money when it comes to writing. It's all about my passion to keep it going. In fact it started out as a way to make an outlet for myself that a journalism professor said I didn't have. Some journalism professors say when you graduate you're no longer a journalist until you're hired as one. I wasn't hired as one, but I discovered I didn't need to be hired in order to have the title of being a Blogger.

That is why you all have been so much more important to me than you'll ever know. Whether you've expressed where improvement was needed or just let me know that you were here for me, it has been helpful in my growth. I'm not where I want to be yet, but I'm so much farther than I used to be. For instance, I was too afraid to do the following years ago and even a year ago.

Recently I took a huge leap with my blog. I nominated it for a Black Weblog Award; Best Entertainment Blog to be exact. Nominations opened up Monday night and the bravery came out of nowhere. Now I need your help. If you like what you read and you have a few dollars to spare, please nominate me for Best Entertainment Blog. Thank you in advance and I promise to only get better.
