a couple days ago i had to write a report about an online community, a discourse community to be exact. And well....even though we were probably being pushed to find a political disscusion board or something like that...i choose this community. I wrote a three page paper about how this simple blog connects people from around the world with a common intrest. And even though it is on the surface about hair...that it actaully runs much deeper in its roots at times when we actaully discuss social stereotypes and everything else. Anyway, i just wanted to post somthing about it and i wondered:
what do people think of this community of dread heads we got here? is it really just a place about hair? or does it represent something more to people? like for instance...does it give you support for a life style...having dreads changed my life in some ways that people who haven't had them just think sounds silly. but every time i read this blog i get a feeling of friendship and community from all the pictures and the sharing of the stories. Just wondering how other people felt. is it just hair tips?
or something more? is it a true online community that has value?
i hope so... because 15 % of my grade depends on it haha.... but really i don't care much...the worst that will happen is i'll have to write another one about something much more boring...
It's been a while since I've posted in this community...and since then I've started a new journal (old name is littleskittles).
It's been about 9 months since I said goodbye to my locks. Everytime I see a picture of myself with my dreads I almost want to cry because I miss them so. My hair isn't long enough to start a new set but I'm looking forward to the day that I start them. My hair is so curly that if I don't wash it daily (which I don't) it starts to knot up on it's own...
I know that when I cut them in August of last year there was a few people that wanted one but things in my personal life has been very crazy and financially I was (and still) just not able to send them out. I feel awful about it because I really wanted to share them with the people that wanted one. (I know that may sound cheesy or stupid but I am proud of them!)
Anyway- I know I'm kinda rambling now but I just wanted to say hello and let everyone know I am still around... just kinda lurk and don't post anything. Things are kinda looking up for me right now so I am going to try to be more active on here.. maybe hahah
I'm rambling again!!! :)
