Midpoint Check In: Switching Gears

At this point, I’ve been running My Infinite Playlist for a little over half a year. I’ve happy turn up GIF by Originals-sourcelearned somethings about blogging, running a site and the direction in which the blog is going.  So far I have seen a little increase in dedicated readership. Which is what I would like. I want the reader who will stay with us through the journey. The passive readers are great too. I’m confident in the content that I create on this site, and I am sure once a member of our target audience experiences the world of M.I.P they will stick around for good.

“We are from all parts of the world and we like to travel the parts we have never been. Women of Color forge into areas that aren’t seen as traditionally ours…”

New Themes:

I realized the true direction I wanted to take this blog. It started off as an interracial blog, wonder woman beyonce GIF-sourceand I would still like to keep that as a topic that we visit. However, I really would like to focus on the overall theme that black women and other women of color are non-monolithic. We are all different, we are into different music, style of dress, dating patterns. We live alternative lifestyles and we are even into alternative forms of beauty. We can be vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian. We are from all parts of the world and we like to travel the parts we have never been. Women of Color forge into areas that aren’t seen as traditionally ours, like beer brewing and tattooing. K-music, J-music, Latin Pop, Afro Beat, EDM, and rock are just some of the genres where we are widespread and share an interest in. We are feminist, traditionalist, minimalist, members of the 1%, political powerhouses, Rap songstresses, and women extraordinaires. We are all of these things under the umbrellas of being people of color and being women. We can be any label we want to apply to ourselves and not just the label assigned to us. We are allowed that basic human right.

“I want to give a different perspective to people who have confined us to a box according to our assigned gender and race. “

Forging Ahead:

So in the continuity of this blog, I would like to document those experiences of women. Especially, women of color who are forging in directions that aren’t traditionally ours to be had. I want to give a different perspective to people who have confined us to a box according to our assigned gender and race. We will continue to be all of the sexy millennial fun of man crush Monday, and we will mix it with the radical faces of women who refuse to be labeled.

“I will work hard to stay true to the new vision and direction we’re headed”

Hey You, Yes You. We’re Looking for you!

We are still looking for contributors that share our vision and that can offer a view into giphy (72)the world of women doing things differently. We also want people who can tell their personal experiences and stories of breaking free or living alternatively. I’m excited to share this new direction with you, and I’m thrilled to share a safe space for women of color to be who they are.  As always, thank you for supporting the blog on WordPress and Social Media. I will work hard to stay true to the new vision and direction we’re headed. I love you Playlisters, Besos!

MCM: Hanging up his Bachelor Jersey

This Man Crush Monday is dedicated to the man who was almost everyone’s Kpop crush in 2006.  He was mine some years later when I actually discovered what Kpop was. He reminded me of Chris Brown after he became nasty Chris Brown. Not ‘Run It’ Chris Brown, but more like ‘Take you down’ Chris Brown. He’s getting this honor because he’s retiring his Bachelor jersey on the 3rd of February. We’re happy for him, but a little sad that we will literally never be able to marry him…possibly (because the way marriages are set up in the 21st century the hope, although slim, is still alive, lol). I am not trifling. I swear, lol. I’m just pointing out a fact.

Anywhosal, I’ve been rambling long enough. Frankly, you’re probably on Edge. Okay, okay…seriously it goes to Taeyang. I decided out of all the candidates, it had to go to him. I wanted to celebrate his upcoming nuptials in true My Infinite style.giphy (70) He needs a bachelor party or at least a post. So this one is for you Taeyang.  Thanks for every grind and pelvic thrust you blessed us with. You really helped to pioneer the war against squeaky clean Kpop (just kidding but I really want to use the laughing crying emoji right now LOL).

Thankyou Taeyang, for your thirst inducing performances. I appreciate you making me briefly consider not only dating guys over 6’0. However, since I never formally met you…in my mind you’ll always be over 6’0. Congratulations on your marriage. giphy (69).gifMay you two live together long and be healthy! Hey Taeyang, I’ve got a crush on you.
