Since blogging as Deepdiva in 2005, I’ve been writing about myself, love and life. And I haven’t always been as consistent as I should be with this blog. I love to write, it’s always been a passion of mine, but lately, it’s been more about the motivation to write than the task itself. I like sharing my views with the world, especially about being a black lesbian, especially since there’s so few of us writing about our experiences. I search high and low for women who have lives like mine. And because I could find it, I began blogging about it myself.
I began with deepdiva.blogspot.com, and when I discovered WordPress and all of its features, I moved to deepdiva.wordpress.com, and that’s where I truly gained an audience. I loved it, and it was only a matter of time before I wanted to purchase Deepdiva.com as my own domain.
It’s been a fun ride, and I’m looking to much more. I’m challenging myself to write more, because I know I have a voice that should be heard. At times, I’ve thought about shutting this puppy down, beginning anew with a different domain. But everytime I just couldn’t do it. Deepdiva is me, and I am Deepdiva. It’s the persona I gave myself a long time ago, and it fits me. And I like to think of myself as a diva (and some do, too, once they know me). Nothing can change that.
Because of that reason alone, Deepdiva.com remains.
