Letter From The Curator 11/3/2015: A Glimpse into the Future!
Last week was a beautifully productive week at #LCP! For starters, I had 2 very exciting meetings for coming projects/additions to LCP, we covered our 1st event as a team, pumped out some AWESOME new content + worked my a$$ off! Productivity makes me feel....euphoric! :) lol! But before we get any further into that, first, a glimpse into the future! :)
I entitled this weeks' #LFTC "A Glimpse into the Future", because for several different reasons, it was. Attending the Glam Pop event on blogger's credentials was by far one of the best blogger's guest passes I've had yet. And what's even better, is that I got to share the experience of this super posh event with part of #TheNewLCP! This post is not the Glam Pop review, so I'll save the details for later. Any who's, being on the scene with part of our fly a$$ team was a golden moment. Part of my vision for LCP was playing out right before my eyes, and I couldn't help but be grateful to be living my dreams. If there was a side bubble that could have played out my side bar thoughts, it would have been a glimpse into many more awesome events/opportunities like that one, in different cities/countries, with my team, in fabulous (upgraded) branding attire, all rocking it in our individual, unique, styles. Along with awesome goody grab bags, perks and treats, it was all there lol. Funny thing is, about 1yr 1/2 I wrote a poem called "Ready" (http://www.lifeculturepeople.com/blog/2014/7/19/jedons/world-ready-?rq=Ready) pertaining to moments like those, and I'll be damned if I wasn't LIVING one of those moments! :) Glam pop review coming soon!
I met up with the royal #JeffersonRalphael the incredible male wardrobe consultant (Melvin Jefferson) that I interviewed in LCP's 1st year, and we inked a deal! #TheNewLCP will now have a male #FashionCulture contributor on the team!
Now on to last week's highlights!
LCP's content just keeps getting better & better, and we are really shaping up to be a well rounded readers digest! The pieces are getting deeper, and the messages are getting stronger. Everyone is figuring out their Blogger's voice, and they have discovered how to relate/relay their messages to their audience. This makes for fluidity, in the tone & pace Of the article. Check out last week's awesomeness!!!
#TheTruthAboutalloween is a piece about the true origin of Halloween. I offer readers pertinent facts about the practices of sorcery, etc that is done on this day. I also gave source links to the research I did on the "holiday" and posed a few questions to broaden general perspective. Some of the findings were quite bizarre, and I couldn't help but be brutally honest about them... But as always, my perspective is open-minded, so the article didn't judge or condemn anyone. In fact, I too allow my son to enjoy the "celebration" for what it is today. However, at some point...I will tell him to truth about "holiday" and allow it to resonate with him, however it does. #GreatRead
