The Great Debate: Facebook Profile or Page?

I have both and I will tell you why.
Actually I have three Facebooks to keep up with! Yes, I said three.

My personal
My Author profile
My Author page

Why? First off, I write under a pen name. So, to use my personal page with a public author page just didn't make much sense to me. Another thing, I am completely different sometimes on my personal page. As in split personality. I'm not even kidding. I am a guarded and reserved introvert, but sometimes I have my moments where I would like to keep it cute and professional. To frankly put it, sometimes I lose my sh*t over personal things meant for my personal profile.

One thing that was bugging me with my personal profile was not being able to share posts from public sites to my author page. I did not want to set my personal profile to public. So, after some Googling I created an author profile. I didn't like the idea for a couple days, that is until an author whom I followed on my personal page sent me a friend request!

I panicked!

What to do? I don't want my professional affiliates to see certain things and judge my work based on that. Also I wanted the two lives to be completely separate. My friends and family are not going to want to constantly see me promoting my works, so I will give them the option to add my author page or profile if they are interested in my Indie Author career.

My personal profile added my author profile and my personal profile is still an Admin for my author page. I keep it this way because if I see something on my personal timeline that I would like to share and do not have the option to do so, I simply share the post with my author profile through messenger and wallah! I can now share some personal content on my public space!

This makes me a happy J.M. 🤓

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

Adulting: Mental Health Awareness Month

I didn't realize my birth month is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. Funny how the first day of the month I have a complete mental breakdown. I'm fine now. Actually the next day I was doing much better.

I knew that transitioning my blog from my budding writing career to a lifestyle blog would be an interesting transition. I am usually secretive and tend to keep my feelings to myself. I knew that somewhere there would be an enemy or foe scowling at my posts, or making jokes at my expense. Which is fine, it comes with the territory. I don't do this for you, I do this for the lone girl that's out there like me. For the person who thinks they are the only one who suffers. I'm open because I'm strong enough to be open. I'm open about my PCOS and the facial hair that comes with it, because I'm inspired by those women who were brave enough to share their experiences.

I'm experiencing what I'm coining 'Environmental Sadness'. My surroundings are mak…
