You’ll have to excuse the cliche title, 2020 simply hasn’t been the most creative year for me. I’ll get straight to it – it’s finally time to say goodbye to The Bronx Socialite blog. As I mentioned a few posts back, maybe last year? I’ve been focusing more on my fiction writing, which has always my true passion, which I know I’ve touched on here a bit. Unfortunately, all other writing has taken a back seat because the way my writing is set up – I can only do one type of writing really well at a time.
When I started this blog in 2011 (?!), there weren’t many of us around (eternal shout outs to Nicole of Bronxmama and Ed of Welcome2theBronx the true GOATS of Bronx blogging) and all we had was Facebook, Youtube, and Twitter in its infancy. Lots of people have come and gone over the years, but I am grateful for those I met whose mission aligned with mine – to simply highlight what the Bronx has to offer. Through this blog, I have gotten amazing opportunities both writing related and not. Probably the thing I am most grateful for is being able to tell the stories of fellow Bronxites and forge a deeper love and appreciation of the borough I’ve called home for about 28 years.
I remain dedicated to supporting our small businesses and culture in whatever way I can. It’s as important as ever that we stand together; it’s been amazing to see communities come together during the pandemic to provide mutual aid and support because if there’s anything that history has taught us it’s that we have to do for ourselves.
I’m going to leave up all the old posts and everything in case they come in handy. Thank you for reading and sticking with me over the years, it’s much appreciated. If you’d like to keep up with me and my literary endeavors, you can check out my writing website and/or follow me on Instagram or Twitter.
Edited to add: I’m going to add a round up post of all my favorite Bronx spots later this week, so stay tuned for that.
