To Blog, Or Not To Blog

Necole Bitchie is shutting down her entertainment blog after 7 years of reporting on the lives of celebrities. If you wanna read her final words, you can go here.

Why Is Love Worth Fighting For?

When it comes to being single in America, there is a notion that it is somehow a temporary station that someone stops at on the way to finding a relationship. I feel as thou that station in life should have an option of permanency; no crowds of people, especially those who facilitate dating sites, trying… Read more »
