T-Minus One: You Must Not Know ‘Bout Me

I always try to do these T-Minus posts ten days before my birthday. I like to think of them as my small way of getting some shit off my chest so I can rocket into my next year of existence. But lately, I’m wondering if it’s even worth it. (Bear with me, because this is […]

T-Minus Two: Entry-Level Dating

While I may be ready for a boyfriend again, I don’t think I’m going to find him through online dating. I’ve been on countless dates, had five relationships, none of them really serious…if I were a baseball player, they’d have shipped my Black ass to the minor leagues by now. But because I am a sucker […]

T-Minus Three: 2014 Accent Challenge

Yesterday, I was racking my brain trying to think of what to write for today’s birthday post. Everyone on my timeline on Twitter has been doing this accent challenge, so I figured I’d jump in on it. Memes as content. It’s like it’s 2005 all over again! (Just ask BuzzFeed.)   If you want to […]

T-Minus Four: Very Similar Dudes

I know writing a blog post based off of a quote from Sex and the City is derivative and tired, but roll with me here. I think if you’ve been dating guys for at least a few years, you may find that you’re dating the same type of guy repeatedly. Sure, we all have our preferences, […]

T-Minus Five: Friends With Lovers

The older I get, the more I can’t deal with these gay mobile dating apps. From catty responses to straight up getting catfished, it’s a wonder anyone’s getting laid out there using these things…unless you’re an attractive, thin to muscular, able-bodied white man. The rest of us are out here fighting for scraps. The other […]

T-Minus Six: 30 Things I’ve Learned from Relationships

It’s amazing how one small thing can throw you off your game for the whole day. Yesterday, it was a YouTube video of Gaara on his revamped YouTube channel. Almost four years later, and time has done him pretty well. He hasn’t aged a day. He’s grown his hair back out a bit and gotten his […]

T-Minus Seven: Not Without A Fight

I wonder who and what I’m fighting for / maybe it’s you – Beady Belle, “Ghosts” I’ll be turning 33 in a week. When I was younger, I had a cuckoo idea that I would be happily partnered by now. Me and a mister in a nice little condo living our nice little partnered gay […]

T-Minus Eight: Africa Is My Descent

I’ve always had a keen interest in tracing my family tree, but it’s only been in the past few years that I’ve decided to start going the DNA route in order to find out where I’m really from. Using Ancestry and Geni can only go so far, especially since slavery means finding family records past […]

T-Minus Nine: Unfinished and Unnamed

I’ve been trying to write a book for well over ten years now. It’s become somewhat of a running joke among my friends since I keep saying I’ll write something every year. I’ve tried all kinds of writing programs to kickstart my book. NaNoWriMo, various writing prompt books, writing memes…you name it. Last year, Shydel […]

T-Minus Ten: Lighting the Fuse and Carrying The Torch

I always try to do these T-Minus posts ten days before my birthday. I like to think of them as my small way of getting some shit off my chest so I can rocket into my next year of existence. But lately, I feel like I’m barely able to make it to the launchpad for […]

#bgb10: T-Minus Four: ‘Sorry’ Won’t Cut It Anymore

Remember this? It’s been a little over five years since Loren Feldman’s “Where Are The Black Tech Bloggers?” video brought the ever present issue of black folks in technology back into the forefront. There’s a lot more activity and diversity now (Black Girls Code, Blacks in Technology, Revision Path, NewMe Accelerator, etc.), and frankly you […]

Rapprochement

I love the start of a new year. For me, it’s always been another chance to get things right. Or in some cases to keep the streak going from a good year before. Even with all the craziness going on in the world last year, 2015 was good to me. I lost a big client, […]

What do black gay 30-something men care about?

So…yeah. I didn’t expect to take that long of a blogging break. But shit happens, y’know? Business has been steady, I had some family deaths to deal with (one of which I did blog about), my mom retired, I took a couple of trips, started some new projects, dated a few boys…shit’s been busy. It’s not an excuse […]

Master of the Fade Away

“And that’s how it goes, kids. The friends, neighbors, drinking buddies, and partners-in-crime you loved so much when you’re young — as the years go by, you just lose touch. You will be shocked, kids, when you discover how easy it is in life to part ways with people forever. That’s why when you find […]
