Breathe & Stop. Keep it Real. And Give It What You Got.
Hey ladies(and those few gentlemen who secretly stalk the site for eye candy),
We wanted to write a post thanking you so much for all of your support. We are approaching the 1 year anniversary of the blog. In just a year, who would have thought it would have jumped off the way it has?
It’s really exciting to:
1. Be able to take our future in our own hands while watching something manifest that was just a thought nearly a year ago.
2. Have a platform from which the ATW Girl is considered not only to be beautiful but positive, admirable and intelligent.
3. Be able to share with all honestly and build an online ATWC family. We can’t tell you how often we lean on your comments, e-mails and tweets as inspiration to keep grinding and pushing through.
This blog was created to deliberately re-define what beauty is and to re-condition women not only to embrace their natural state of being, but to value their individual uniqueness and overall worth.
With that said, we want to always keep the integrity of the blog. We believe that this blog is special because of the relationship that we have with our readers. We want to continue to engage with you in our comments, e-mail, on youtube, facebook, twitter and tumblr, and be as accessible as possible. We don’t want you to write and go unnoticed. We are finding that with the pressure to post daily in order to, “grow/get more traffic/get more hits/” that we are losing touch with some of you. No bueno. Quality over quantity.
So in order to maintain our standards we are going to take some of the pressure off. If a Sunday goes by and there isn’t a new post, know that it is not because we have become lazy but because we are e-mailing folks back, creating quality posts, editing pictures and videos, designing our new website layout, planning a meet up and so on. Ya feel us? Would that be terrible? We feel like it’s the end of the world when we have nothing to post. Stresses. Us. Out! But we are realizing that occasional pauses are needed.
We have so many ideas and plans for ATWC. It’s going to be good ya’ll. So, we ask that you be patient and continue to rock with us while we grow not only as bloggers but as women.
We love the mess out of ya’ll (almost as much as Bey loves Jay). ♥
I graduated High school around this time last year and Im "trying to find myself" as my mother says and I want my natural hair back. I used to relax my hair but I noticed it was making my hair fall out in chunks so I stopped and did a semi big chop for grad. I've been trying to wear it curly but (here's my actual problem) my curls won't curl properly. Its like Im having trouble redefining the curls. Could my texture have changed, do I have to re-tame my hair? I don't know what to do with it.
Alright, this is going to have to be a dialogue so be sure to write back! What part of your hair is not curlying? Do you still have a relaxer in certain spots? What products are you using on your hair currently? How often are you wetting your hair?
