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]
– 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:
This Is Your Conscience
