Magical Changes to Come in 2012

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

Dear Kurlies,

I'm sensing that 2012 is going to be a magical year and I'm totally excited, claiming it and giving thanks for it already! I've also decided to do some reflecting on this blog and where I want to go with it. While I love (afro-texture) hair care, I will always be an all-things-creative enthusiast first and I'm now pondering over if it truly trumps my interest in hair.

I'm trying to figure out how I will keep this blog alive. I have my creative blog and my financial blog and my Tumblr. I've kinda taken more interest in them. As I get older I'm realizing that I'm so much more than my hair. I'm not obsessed with hair anymore really (definitely not like I used to be), my prominent interests are art, photography, cooking, and crafting of various sorts and now personal finance. 

I now know my natural hair texture isn't bad because it's not a "Spanish/Indian" wavy or loose curl texture. My hair and the beauty of afro-kinky hair isn't a big deal to me anymore; it's just a given ya know? Duh are hair is the most unique and is absolutely beautiful! While my journey to grow my hair very long (because it's pretty long when stretched now) continues, I really feel like I've reached a hair nirvana of sort. I'm very, very happy with my hair's overall well being and appearance and like to keep it simple with my regimen, what I use and how I style my hair; so now what???

So I'm going to take another small break, take stock of everything and brainstorm how to reinvent this here space or if I will walk away. I thank you all for your love and encouragement over the years. For those of you that this is your first visit to my site, please take a look around. I've had this blog for over 3 years now so there is tons of reading content to get acquainted with. 

Be blessed and stay naturally fly. Wishing you all a magical 2012. 

Koils & Kinks,

Awww don't go. Yours was the very first blog I found when I was researching natural hair 2 1/2 yrs ago. Even though I've since returned to relaxed, I always check in now and again to see your progress and what you're up to.

HEy Milan.. Why not link your blog into one.

You're an evolving and very creative person so it makes sense that you're considering a change. Selfishly, I'll add my two cents :) I agree with CurvyCurlyTrini that it would be a great idea to merge your blogs into one lifestyle blog that incorporates all of your interests. I imagine that you are already considering the pros and cons of that. No matter what, you'll do what works for you. I've enjoyed your blog for the last couple years. I don't comment often but I always read. Wishing you a magical 2012!
