Exactly one year ago I thought….


    It’s about to be a fucking movie: both the events about to occur as well as my life in general. Remember all the things I told you I stand for in “Ella Who?” well, I still believe in those things. Their my… umm.. mission statement, you might say. But… as much as I can do on my own, I can’t do everything.  I don’t know everything, and I’ve learn to manage that as opposed to “deal with”. I still think I know a whole lot of shit. But, I’m not an expert. I don’t have the training nor the applicable experience. The problem is though, that I hate the hell out of anyone who tries to give me advice but hasn’t earned their stripes –they need more people. I’m afraid of being one of those people who need more people. So… I’ve gathered them up to show you all that I roll deep. If you look at the top of this page, you’ll see there’s a new navigation bar. Feel free to employ it. 

     @PFungFitness for Health & Fitness. You can call her Shirley (I do), is my cousin. There’s a bit of bias involved but that doesn’t combat the fact that she’s placed in every fitness competition she’s entered (knock on wood). She’s dedicated. She’s motivated. And I say this because of more than just her recent accomplishments. I’ve seen her grow. I’ve seen the beautiful young woman she’s become (and always has been) and I think she’s be a positive role model for a lot of you. If not for the choices she makes in life, then in the say to day choices she makes for her health. She’s more than just a pretty face and a pretty body but those things are still integral to who she is.  Her blog, PFungFitness.com has been created by a real  person for real  people. Whenever I have random questions, (like I missed breakfast, now what?), I tweet (or txt cuz I got it like that) to her and she responds readily with an explanation I can understand. And frequently she gives me a lot more. This is a girl who is pursuing a degree in biology for a career in nutrition. The same girl who is studying for her Personal Trainer certification. This same girl is only 20 years old. If that’s not motivation and dedication, I don’t know what the fuck is. So… if you have questions about health or dieting —anything– feel free to tweet/follow/email her and I’m sure she’ll become your personal trainer as well.  Your welcome 😉
     @ONEspotlight on celebs, entertainment & current events needs little introduction. This isn’t a start up blog by any means and comes equipped with it’s own following. I’ve been trying to evaluate how well I’m doing in providing you all what you need and one place I fall short is in what’s happening… with the world. With this blog, you’ll be updated on all the gossip/current event/”I think I’m famous, too,” shit you’ve been yearning for. @ONEspotlight is the only degree of separation between you and the flashing lights.
     So… let me say this for the first time so it resounds through the waves —Fuck everybody but me. a Necole Bitchie. Fuck a Perez Hilton. Fuck all those websites run by a room full of people who don’t know each other and only care about their ratings and advertisers. Welcome to reality. To a combination of blogs that aim to fulfill you  and ourselves at the same time. Where the people writing to you are actually doing what they say. We walk the walk, talk the talk, buy the shoes and eat the food. Welcome to some real shit. Welcome to something you can actually trust.  
     There is very little structure in this world. There is only one rule. My writers and I focus on  #JustWhatWeWannaDo. Sometimes, I’m an artist. Sometimes a philosopher. Sometimes a photographer and (this past weekend) a professional rollerblader. Really, I do what the fuck I wanna do. Whatever makes me the fuck happy. So sometimes I feel like writing. Sometimes I don’t. Either I get #JWWWD.
