Four years ago I started this crazy journey and didn’t have a clue what I was doing. Friends suggested I start a blog about DC and as a native and what to do here so DCFunemployment was born. I was clueless as to how much work was ahead of me but I was lucky enough to find a blogging network that was the gateway to everything I’ve learned about blogging and the many people that taught it to me. I’m friends with some of the original DC bloggers, have seen new blogs open (and sometimes end), I’ve seen name changes, accounts hacked and the dreaded move from one platform to another and learned from it all. So why the nostalgia and history on this day of celebration and rebirth?!? Because… CHANGE IS COMING! Allow me to reintroduce myself:
The landing page is live!! Sign up to be a #Happener and follow the adventures of being #DCFunemployment #AsItHappens… the new site will be a #WhoWhatWhere (or wear) of the #DMV… #LaunchingSoon #2016 Thank you to everyone who encouraged me (&taught me everything I know about the biz)… @gofgdc @spicycandydc @shesunique_va @diningtraveler @diegodowntown @angelicatalan @tanviidotcom @laceperspective @hairbydougj & many more
As some of you know, many things are changing here and one of the big ones is my BRAND NEW BLOG!! Events and all things DC will now be on my new site: As It Happens (dot com). This will be a premier site to go and see what is happening on the DC social scene and get recommendations on great places to go in the city. There will be curated guides from myself and other influencers to help visitors and new comers navigate where to go in the DMV to experience a more intimate and native DC.
So what does that mean for DCFunemployment?!?! Do not fear, it will still be here but it will be a bit different. I am regularly amazed by the awesome things that people are doing in pursuit of their passions and I want to do my part so DCFunemployment will now be my digital shout out to the amazing women (and occasionally men) who are pursuing their passions and are as I like to call it, “Funemployed”. I have some amazing people lined up to share their stories but there is always room for others at the able so if you love what you do and would like to share your journey email me at firstname.lastname@example.org! I am truly very excited to start this next leg of my journey and share it with you!
Now I’m off to go eat Christmas Dinner with the family!! Hope you are enjoying yours!!
