Happy 1 year anniversary STARberryIceCream.com!
One year ago today, I launched a project that changed my life…
When I decided I wanted to do a website in 2010, it was only supposed to be something to add to my resume’. It was a place that future employers could see samples of my writing, and possibly hire me for a job in a TV station or newspaper. The industry for Journalism and Media has taken a nosedive, and I decided that it would be cool to have something to keep me occupied. It was a way to keep all of the things I learned after 5 years of college fresh.
Little did I know that I would find it FUN! I never set out to do this site to be rich, famous, or even have anyone that would read it. Now one year later I have steady readers, over a thousand articles published, and working on some SWEET deals to share my site with the WORLD.
I would like to send a HUGE shout out to my business partner/friend Tevye Harper for being the MASTERMIND behind the entire thing and putting this site together. Everyday he pushes me harder and harder to take this seriously and I finally have. Thanks for always believing in me.
Also have to give a huge shout out to my friend/sportswriter Isaiah Dillard who is one of the freshest writers I have seen. Talent can’t be “taught” it is something that has to come from within. He definitely has it. I feel BLESSED beyond measures to have him on my team. This guy is going to be major, and I feel it.
Last but not least, I want to thank ALL of you for continuing to support this site. Thanks for every click, pageview, word-of-mouth spread, and even the people who called me “a bootleg website ran by a bitch who knows nothing” ……I love you all.
We are one year and counting, and this is only the beginning.
To infitinity and beyond!
