First let me start off by saying HAPPY NEW YEAR.
Second let me say the time has come to say goodbye to iheartbri. It’s not that I do not like the name, it is more that I need the name to be a better description of myself. Do not get me wrong I HEART myself all the time but I felt that I pretty much turned iheartbri into just makeup identity and random fitness rants.
So why did I pick Melanin Eclectic?
To be very honest the original name change was going to be AFRO Eclectic but it turns out that that name is already taken and being used by another blogger (who i now follow). I needed my name to have parts of my identity in it and what better word to describe a big part of my appearance than MELANIN. I love everything about being a beautiful black woman and I make sure to flaunt that everyday so Melanin was a perfect alternative.
But why Eclectic? What does that even mean?
Thanks to Google, Eclectic is an adjective that means “deriving ideas, style, or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources”. If you check my new menu bar you will see just that. (Granted give me a couple more days to finish converting old blogs into their right categories) I am a person of many interests, hobbies, and curiosities and I do not see any reason why I should not share it all on my blog/channel.
Does this mean no more makeup?
No there will still definitely be makeup related videos and posts BUT it will no longer be the main focus of my work. I love makeup just like the next girl so it is staying on my channel as I love doing it still.
How often will we see your work?
I am still trying to decide on the definite schedule for everything but I am going to stick to the 2 videos + 1 blog format I have been doing. However; the videos will be posted on Tuesdays and Thursdays with the blog post on Friday. You might get 3 videos sometimes just depending on time and content. I am also going to try to do themes for certain months. For example this month is usually a heavy fitness month for a lot of people and so I will be posted a lot of fitness related content this month. I am not saying that every month will be like this nor am I saying every video will be fitness related but I am still trying some things out.
With all of that being saying I am praying to reach 1k followers on my blog and 2k followers on my youtube channel so I hope you guys like what I have to bring to the table.
I hope you all stay blessed and stay you!
