New Blogger On The Block: '83 To Infinity

Our new blogger on the block is:

'83 To Infinity by Bee.

Why did you decide to start blogging?

Writing has always been cathartic for me. I had previous blogs that I kept private, and used them as electronic journals. However, over the last few months I decided to do the one thing that scared me to death with my writing - I decided to share it with others. 

I started '83 To Infinity as a way to break out of my shell, and to also share my thoughts on things that I am passionate about. Providing a Canadian voice in the largely American Natural hair care discussion was the impetus, but it quickly grew into much more than that.

When People come to your blog what will they find?

People who visit my blog will find the things that I am passionate about. The undercurrent of my blog is a representation of life's varied journeys - natural hair transitions, improving one's wellness, furthering one's career, marriage and relationships. They will find humour, positivity, honesty, and openness - it's through these qualities that I hope people find someone they can relate to and be inspired by. 

What is the promise that you make to people who visit your blog?

I promise to give my readers unrelenting truth. My best posts are the ones where I am the most honest with myself, and those are the ones that resonate most with my readers. I write the way I speak, I include photos of myself (including before and after hair shots - not always the most flattering!), and I have learned to be more open in my writing. I will always deliver quality posts, and will always tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

Who are your blogging inspirations or heroes?

Afrobella - inspired me in the Natural hair care realm, and made me think that I could do it (Natural hair and blogging) too. Naked With Socks On - inspired me to be transparent with my words and ideas.
