One Year!?! 1K+ Phriends !?!
Even more so because it is happening amidst a global pandemic.
Even more so because it is occurring during my season of early grief.
Even more so because this is something that my brother encouraged me to do and even created the first design samples of PhemmeD merchandise (RIP Greg).
Even more so because (insert all the ways society and academia are strategically designed for this little Black girl to fail).
So for this milestone…. I thank you. Un mil gracias.
Thank you for checking in, for commenting and liking, for being in conversation with me around all things scholarly, sewing related, and about traveling. You are what helped me keep myself this past year. You are my daily to-do that always felt like a reward. When life was really hard this past year, the TSS community felt like a place of relief, even for just a moment.
Again, I thank you.
So what’s new this year? Oh so much!
Beginning this summer…
On the blog I will still continue to have at least one post a month. I want to invite you to be a part of the Behind-The-Stitch blog. Want to share your story? Does it resonate with #TheScholarlySewist and the tenets of #Scholar, #Sewist, and/or #Sightseer? Let me know if you’d like to write a guest blog post and share your own story of perseverance while on your #gradschool journey.
On the ‘gram I want to start using IG Live. I have only done one and had a blast, so look forward to getting dissertation journey updates via IG Live and me being in conversation with other scholars, sewists, and sightseers.
YouTube is coming! As a visual researcHER, I want you to be able to see what I’m talking about. I have finally decided to start a YouTube channel, and the first episode is coming to you this summer. These videos or vlogs will give you a closer look into my #pathtoPhD, as this summer I will be defending my proposal and hoping to defend my dissertation, and become #Dr.B May 2022!
So make sure you are following us on all the platforms so you won’t miss any of the exciting things happening at The Scholarly Sewist!
