Pixie Me Rollin…


I started growing out my pixie cut after having a baby one year ago. 3 months in, I thought I’d be funny and start a social networking support group for girls with short hair. It blew up pretty fast, so now I’m entertaining the thought of building a blog that will serve as a resource for girls with pixie cuts who are looking for style tips, grow-out tips, product recommendations, etc.

I threw around a couple of domain names. Hubs suggested “pixiemerollin.com.” It’s not the one I went with, but the more I say it, it does have a nice ring to it. Right?

Pixie Me Rollin’. Maybe when I get famous, I’ll chop off my hair again, buy that domain, and use it as my personal brand website.

All my fans can pixie me rollin’ in a chauffeured black car. (I’ll hire my buddies at Charlotte limo to be my personal bodyguards.) We’ll travel the country doing charity concerts. We’ll rent a hotel room and buy dinner for the homeless guy who’s begging on the corner outside the venue. We’ll talk to him about his hopes and dreams and figure out a way to help him get back on his feet.

It’s one person, but that person is significant. His life matters. Everyone’s life matters. He should experience joy and peace and grace, not because he deserves it (none of us do), but because his creator wants to give him that. We’ll share that good news and help him put together a plan and budget that’ll take him from street to sleek in one year or less.

Those are the kinds of things I dream about. I bet Tupac dreamed about stuff like that too. Just sayin’ ;).

I’m not on the streets, but I did recently move back in with the rents so I could save money and build my dreams. Hubs and I gave ourselves one year to do it. And believe it or not, this blog is one of the tools we’re using to help us get there.

It’ll be fun to look back at this post one year from now and compare where we are at that point to where we were when I wrote it. Until then… just pixie me rollin…

Welcome To My Blog…

Popsquire got napped. I bought this domain because I really liked the name. Not sure what this site used to be about our who owned it, but as an independent artist who enjoys living vicariously through pop stars (not really), this seemed like the perfect fit.

I got dreams, yo. I got goals I’m tryin to meet in the next year so I can live like a celebrity. Honestly, I never much cared for pop culture. I think the music industry today pretty much sucks. Most of the people who have achieved super-fame status are terrible at their craft. But it goes to show that money matters. You gotta have it to survive. You gotta have it to get around. You gotta have it to be of major influence in this world. And if I have a goal to change the world, I gotta get rich first to do it.

In the meantime, this will be my place to dream. I’ll share all the stories in my head. Stories about the charities I’ve started (or will start). Stories about the people I’ve met (or will meet). Stories about how I’m gonna use my cash to make music and art that speaks into people’s lives and inspires them to change their situation for the better instead of rambling on about hittin’ the club.

If you’re a dreamer like me, then I’d like to invite you to join the popsquire internet revolution. Start your own blog. Write your own thoughts down. Share your stories with the world and together, let’s make a true change. Not the hypothetical change Obama was talkin’ about 7 years ago (obviously). But the kind of change we can see with our eyes, hear with our ears, touch with our hands and – most importantly – sense in our hearts.

More to come soon…
