I’m Starting A New Blog – But First I Need A Good Woman

***PLEASE READ****

I just recently learned that the contact section of my site has NOT been receiving ALL emails, which means some [or many] of you may have sent me a request in regards to this blog and I didn’t receive it because my email was intermittently down. The issue has been resolved, and although I know it must be a pain in the ass for you, ladies I would appreciate if you could fill out the contact form and I PROMISE I will be in touch with you ASAP. Thanks!

Now that I have your attention with a slightly fallacious and misleading title, I actually DO want to announce to all the readers of TIYC that I will be starting a new blog in the fall [this is where you cheer, you jerks]. Also, the title isn’t 100% false, because I need a woman to assist me with writing this brand new blog – and THIS is my cry for help.

What’s the blog about you ask? Well, that’s a great question, so allow me to explain:

A long time ago I wrote THIS post advocating grown-ass single folk to use online dating as a great method of meeting people since we are getting too old and mature for the club, yet too young for Bingo nights and Oprah’s book club. But the reality is, I PERSONALLY have never been on an online-dating site, so I wasn’t exactly practicing what I was preaching. 

Well, about a year ago, I had this idea for a blog series I wanted to do on this site where I joined a few online-dating sites and went on dates and all that – but used THIS blog as a live journal for my adventures, where I would update everyone on every single encounter, from the browsing of pictures and profiles, all the way down to the texting and BBM’ing and eventually dating them [obviously with real names, locations and exact details edited out]. I then realized that I didn’t want to dedicate THIS site to those posts, so I came up with the concept of creating a NEW site.

But then, I got an even BETTER idea: Going on this journey of dating-discoverery with a FEMALE counterpart who can tell HER stories about sending and receiving messages and dealing with frowzy dudes and dating cool ones too.

Then we can write blog posts every other day or every few days detailing our experiences with delving into this online dating world and what we’ve discovered about the other sex, ourselves and trying to find love in 2012. I want it to be an honest, self-effacing and HILARIOUS look into the world of trying to find a good man/woman. Also, I want it to be a realistic look into the dating scene for people [currently] like me, who have NEVER tried the E-dating world. Whether you think it’s a GREAT thing or a MUSTY-ASS experience, it would be an insightful read.

So, I’m taking submissions, and I would love to find someone cool to work with, so here’s my requirements:

- Don’t look like Lawrence Taylor
- Smart [I don't care about your GPA, just don't TyPe LiKe ThIs or think Barbados is a parish in Jamaica]
- Self-Respecting [Ain't nobody trying to read Confessions Of An E-Harmony Vixen]
- Good sense of humour
- Good grammar
- You DON’T have to be a blogger or a vlogger [although it helps]

And lastly…

- Single [Don't get an innocent dude shanked by your crazy man]

And that’s pretty much it. If you are interested in joining me on my new blog journey, please fill out the contact form HERE, Tweet me @lincolnablades or hit me up on my Facebook in the group link on the right. I hope you all are feeling this idea, and I would appreciate your support with the new site once it launches.

Thanks again – and you know what time it is:

    Ladies & Gentlemen, What Do You Think Of This New Blog Idea? Anything You Think I Need To Add Or Watch Out For To Make Sure It's Interesting And Runs Smoothly?

    Also, To Any Ladies Interested, The Goal Is To Build The Profitability Of The Site From Day One So You Can Start Getting PAID For Your Efforts ASAP.

    good idea but please whoever you choose make sure they're honest, humble and not afraid to detect and call out their own BS ways. Self reflection is what will attract readers to follow for the long run.

    Good luck

      I Feel You On This…I Want A Woman Who Can Bring A Great Vibe To It, But I Don't Want Her To Be The Type Of Woman That Is Un-relatable, Or Stuck Up, Or Anything Close To Toni Childs In Girlfriends..

      A Sexy Version Of Liz Lemon From 30 Rock Would be AMAZING

    Well, you know from my Twit that I absolutely love the idea. (having flashbacks of my own online dating debacles….)

    I would've volunteered until I read the "never tried" requirement.

    • lincolnanthonyblades

      08/16/2012 at 8:44 PM

      How Was Your Experience?? Did You Ever Write About It?

      • Celina

        08/17/2012 at 6:54 AM

        No, I've never written about it but there were definitely some moments worth writing about! There was a lot of bullsh*t, but I also got to know 1 or 2 good guys in the process. I got fed up and eventually closed my account, but I wouldn't be opposed to trying it again.

    So Lincoln….I dont know if I'm speaking for myself here, but I'm curious sir…who's the lucky lady?

    I know I'm late to the party, but I want to mention I really really like the idea. I've always been curious about the online scene but too skeptical (by "skeptical" I mean scared and lazy) to try it. I'm excited to live vicariously through your blog :D

    I think this is a great idea Lincoln. I actually wouldn't mind getting involved. I have a suggestion. Have you given thought to maybe having 3 or 4 people (including the female and yourself) write on the blog so it will give a variety perspectives? My logic behind this is, what if you or the female blogger fall for one of the people you both are dating? Would the blog stop or will you continue to chronicle your relationship?

    • lincolnanthonyblades

      09/13/2012 at 12:33 PM

      Great comment.

      I actually wanted to start with 2 people and then slowly but surely expand, so it can be a team of different people with different stories, because once someone starts getting serious with the person they are dating, the blog will inevitability have to discontinue. I think it would be easier to start with 1 man and 1 woman and build slowly off of that.
