Natural Hair Rules is Five!!! WOW!!! I’m in this state of utter disbelief and extreme giddiness. Everyday I’m amazed of the amount of support I’ve received from the Natural Hair Rules Community!!! My heart overflows with gratitude for each and everyone of you who read my post, comment on the various social media networks, and support the Natural Hair Rules Store!
I’m so humbled by this community of readers, natural hair lovers, and bloggers. I’ve shared this in my How I Become a Full-Time Blogger post, but I never imagined that I’d be able to share my love for all things hair for a living. Natural Hair Rules’ mission has always been to inspire those to be who they are naturally. But I didn’t know it would grow the way that it has.
As I was approaching the 5th Anniversary of this site, I wasn’t really interested in celebrating. Sure, I have accomplished so much with NHR but all I saw was items that remained unchecked on my long list of to-dos. I’m beyond grateful of the half-million monthly pageviews and the 270,000+ social media following but I have such high expectations of myself as well as my blog. I got a lot of work to do…
Thankfully, I have a wonderful support system that see me when I can’t see myself. They push me. Sometimes they even drag me on the path that I now know is my purpose. From a very early age, I knew I wanted to be prolific and take over the world (World Domination, baby). Now I will admit I’m far from it but I know I’m heading in the right direction. How many people can say that?
What’s Next for Natural Hair Rules and Myself???
I have a long list of to-dos. These to-dos include building an editorial team of highly knowledgeable hair care experts, hosting quarterly events, more video tutorials, expanding the products offered in the Natural Hair Rules!!! Store, and more.
As for me… I want to finish my books, offer online courses for bloggers, and continue to be the best wife and mother to my Benz (both of my guys are named Ben). Maybe take some creative writing and journalism courses and keep inspiring people to go after their dreams!
Thanks for reading!!!
