So here’s an analogy to explain my two cents about #OscarsSoWhite and the whole boycott thing … if a candy dispenser has 90 red jellybeans and 10 yellow jellybeans, are you really going to be surprised if the first 20 jellybeans you get are red?

It’s taken me a while, but I finally have the time to thank Mary Pamela for nominating me for this wonderful award! It really took me by surprise to get this award, and I am so grateful for the time that Mary Pamela has spent reading my blog and including me in her awards circle 🙂 Now… Continue reading Why the Blogosphere is Great
