Welcome to 2011, Dreamers! I want to thank you personally for making my blog a healthy, successful adventure in thought provocation all year long. I am especially grateful because I don’t blog daily or even weekly, but when I do, you are all there to read and share which means you respect quality over quantity. Here’s how the blog did in 2010, thanks to you:
Special shouts to media superstar Angela Yee, rap icon Lil’ Kim and fine artist Kara Walker for being among the highest searching people on my blog. Another highlight was my review of Tyler Perry’s For Colored Girls. Thanks for all those hits and retweets, y’all! We’re gonna do more and better for 2011!
