CAN ANYBODY HEAR ME!?!

Y'all awfully quiet out there and Blaq's feelin' a little lonely and under appreciated.  Back-in-da-day, ya'll used to holla at me all the time, leave comments, at-a-girls!, you-go-girls!, I-feel-you-sistuh! and all kinds of positive reinforcement.  Now y'all treatin' me a like a bad relationship.  Drop-by-do-yo-thang-and-leave.

Do you like my pics, my music, my vibe, my information...Tell a sistuh sumthin'!  Y'all have fallen into a five-year-slump.  Is it time for Blaq to call-it-quits like Simon Cowell?  Shall I quietly go into the blog abyss?  Am I played out like an eight-track? 

Seriously, I love hearing from everyone.  It inspires and motivates me to continue to write and to post more often.  If there's a Sisterlocks question you'd like to ask or see featured in Natural Awakenings, just shoot me an email.  You know how y'all do when you want something, "Hey Blaq, I was wondering what hair color and brand you use." :-)

Working on a nice surprise for my 5 year anniversary next week.

Stay tuned...well, that's if y'all still want me around....

Feelin' lonely & blue

Blaq

Brandis said...

I just started my research on sisterlocks (and there's a lot out there) but you have provided so much insight and information. Since I started following your journey I've become 98.9%. The other 1.1% will come once I find my own Gigi to start me on my journey. Keep up the good work.

Kay said...

Hi Blaq,

Following your blog has been one of the most interesting and exciting things about getting my sisterlocks. Not only that, it's made me stay strong on my weight loss journey and renewed my interested in exercising because frankly 'when i grow up i wanna be like you' lol. Don't worry, I even gave your website to someone last week who wanted to know about sisterlocks. Many of us read but don't comment because we agree or are in awe of what you've said. Keep up the good work. Let us know when you come over to this side of the pond.

Mimi said...

Wassup sistuh! LOL... Keep the posts coming -- yours is one of my favorites and I look forward to your posts. BTW, I do know how it feels when it seems like you've dropped into the blogger's abyss. LOL!

Evangpate said...

Nooooo don't go into the blog abyss I enjoy reading your blog and loving your locs! You are on my blog list and I look for updates from you everyday. Speaking of haircolor I've been interested in doing just that but my locs are only 13 months old. Do you think it's okay to color at this stage?

Kendi G. said...

Please don't even think about stopping your blogging. You are such an inspiration to me. I love to read all your musings and I often look back on all your old pictures, to see where your hair is coming from, and where it is now. It gives me encouragement. Keep on posting Blaq!

Hey Blaq, don't feel bad, I feel the same way. However I'm sure people are reading, but just not leaving comments. I noticed some of the regulars are not posting anymore, I guess blogland has slowed down. Anyhow just know that we do love you and your blog, your pictures and your music. Your posts are very informative and very inspirational. So keep doing your thang. Even if your word is reaching one person its more than enough. Hopefully everyone is not only commenting because of this one post, hoepfull they will continue to show the love. Take care friend,

V

Alana said...

uhhh yea im here. I sent you an email about a week ago saying that I was new to your blog and I needed a bit of help

The Woman Inside said...

You know what happened last time when I thought I was not 'invited' to read your blog!!!! I sent a frantic email. Thank goodness it was just under construction. STAY!

BlaqKofi said...

Thanks for all the luv ladies. Feelin' oh so much better. Hey, I had a "me" moment, ok? But I'm betta. Love you all.

BlaqKofi said...

@ Alana...I have an abundance of emailed questions. This post was about sisterly support - giving back. Unfortunately I can't get to everyone who writes. I work a full-time AND run a Sisterlocks business. Blogging is voluntary passion which takes a tremendous amount of time. So, be patient and if you haven't already done so, check the archives. Many people write with questions that can be answered by using my site's search feature.

Natacha said...

I've been inspired by your blogs!! I'm currently sisterlocked for almost 15 months and it's because of you!! Thank you!!

Anonymous said...

Hey Blaq...plz don't leave! FYI i check your blog almost daily but don't leave messages all the time. I've been sisterlocked for 3 yrs and 4 months and I hope my locks grow to look like yours one day. You are truly an inspiration not only in hair but in physical fitness also. Keep 'em coming....

Ebe (Ebele a facebook fan of yours)...been watchin Blaq since 2006...Holla!

Leah said...

Hey, I really liked 8-tracks!. Except you couldn't rewind them. LOL! Please don't fade out. You are my lock idol and I visit your blog almost everyday, if not only to see if there's something new, but to read old posts.

new2locs said...

LOL!!!! I love this post!!! Sophia was just saying the same thing on her blog. We're all here as you can see from all of the love you just got. I personally made my final decision to loc after going through your blog from beginning to end, that was two years ago & I'm still here reading your updates! Keep em coming Blaq we love you!!!

BlaqKofi said...

Leah, 2 funny! @New2Locs - you get my humor! It was written tongue-n-cheek, but not everyone got it, so thanks! I love it!!!

OneofOne said...

I am almost one year sisterlocked. Yours was the first blog that I went to for information. Please continue to inspire the oldies and the newbies. Trust me, your blog really helped me in my early days. Stay positive.

Hey Blaq

I love reading your blog and going back to when your hair is at the stage mine is. I don't always comment but I do read when I get a chance. Please please do not go as I find your blog informative, fun and interesting

Tamara Bella said...

Blaq, you are reason I made the decision to lock. I was at your blog so much three years ago my husband said he was starting to see you in his dreams, lol. Although we haven't said it in a while we do appreciate all that you do. Educating, entertaining inspiring and just sharing your journey with us. I wish I had your consistency with my own blog it is truly in an abyss. My daughter celebrated her 3 years over the Memorial holiday weekend but I have yet to update. You inspire me to get back blogging now I just find out what I'm gonna say, so please don't stop we love you!!!

BrownSugaHair said...

Sorry...I feel like you were talking directly to me. I am a silent stalker. I visit a lot of blogs and never leave comments. I didn't realize how important it is for you to receive feedback. Now I know. I absolutely LOVE your blog. Thank you for updating it on a regular basis.

Sue said...

Naturally Sophia said...

We are all fans! As New2Locs said I asked the same thing on my blog. I remember when I first started blogging, the posts were so good almost like a constant exchange, one good episode after another. Sometimes now its like...crickets. I think we should all comment more.

still waters said...

Sending some love and lock respect your way. You are always keeping it real!

Angela said...

Blaqkofi,

I am so glad you are here to give inspiration to others. I personally have "stalked" your blog for quite a while and don't leave messages. So when I read your heading it lit fire under me and I had to say something. Don't you even think about going anywhere!!! I finally got Sisterlocked 9 months ago and I love it!! Thank you so much for your honesty and sharing of your journey.

Kalimah said...

You were one of my main inspirations when looking into becoming sisterlocked. I stopped processing my hair August 09 and locked on March 6 '10. Thanks for blogging!!!

free2bme said...

no we are definitely still reading, this is one of my online manuals..lol. Can you post something about what you use to get your curls to stay in. What rollers and setting lotion are you using and if it lasts more than a couple of days are you rolling it again at night?

LadyButterfly said...

Hey Blaqkofi,
Your blog, your hair, your pics, info and just you as a person have been so helpful, cool, interesting, and fun to see. We appreciate your organization, helpful info and just the real you. Thank you for being one of my MAJOR inspirations for why I got sisterlocks in the first place. Love ya girly! Stay true, stay you and as always LOCK ON!!!
I actually came to your site to see info on lock loops. I really need to order some. ~Take care~
