Let me give you the back story of me and Michelle Brown. When I first started my site, I was going to talk about things going on in Atlanta. I started the site initially because my anxiety issues had just started. And I thought, it would give me something to do to get out of the house. My very first blog was about going to the mall me meet Jill Zarin. Click the link. I had no idea in hell what I was doing. But that didn’t stop me. I reached out to Michelle from Straight From The A and the editor of Reality Tea at that time. Between the two of them they would listen to any stupid question I asked and both said, “there is room for everyone and this is how you do it.” I have been grateful ever since because I was a clueless fucktard and only now starting to figure everything out.
Learning The Ropes
Michelle “Atlien” Brown was most helpful because she’s from Atlanta. So I found myself on day one with no sources at all pretty much copying her posts or Reality Tea posts and dropping a link. Which is/was fine at the time. Quoting is fine. But who the fuck is reading my blog? I really had no Idea for the first few couple of months. Anyway those are my two mentors. And Michelle told me her views at some point early on and I was SHOCKED AND AMAZED. (I’m still working toward that Michelle) . She’s amazing. Sometimes you guys call me and seem to think I am someone important. That is how I thought about Michelle. And still do to this day. I’m her biggest fan.
I hate Youtubes, videos, podcasts, anything where I cannot hear my TV. I’m a TV addict. So it takes me a lot to watch a Youtube or podcast. I say all this to say that StraightFromTheA has a TWO FUCKING HOUR YOUTUBE, PODCAST WHAT THE FUCKEVER YOU CALL IT with Peter Thomas that is must see. Not only did I not FF through the anything other that Michelle flipping through her comments for a couple of seconds. I WATCHED THE ENTIRE TWO HOURS. I also watched through the questions at the end when Peter had some technical difficulties.
TWO HOURS WATCHING A YOUTUBE? YES, YES YOU MUST FIND THE TIME
My thoughts on those two hours were, Michelle is a boss. And Peter Thomas is a boss. (and they would be a good couple, I would go to the wedding if invited). You need to watch this entire Youtube. TRUST ME. I do not watch a fifteen minute episode of a youtube. I flip through. I fast forward. And if you think you will not get more tea at the end you only have to deal with a couple of tealess calls that are fun. It’s a great show. Peter explains about that time he went to jail.
I’ve had sources who have slammed Peter. But he seemed sane, sober and smart to me on this youtube.
CHECK IT OUT AND WATCH THE WHOLE THING.
And Michelle, my dear friend, you need a new backdrop, it looks at times like a building is growing out of the top of your head to the side. I loved how you just let Peter talk about whatever came up. Love ya!
