JBF is syndicated! – Onicia Update

I finally achieved my big goal for 2020: Just Being Funny is syndicated and now reaching thousands of readers! Sadly the world is on fire, and I’m not really in a celebratory mood. 

As a public figure of sorts, I guess I should make a statement.

Black Lives Matter.

That’s it. That’s the statement.

Here are some funny thoughts I slapped together while the world was burning. FYI, I write these months in advance because I’m an overachiever. 

For the curious, I queried over 100 Caribbean publications. Syndication is an accomplishment to celebrate. Many thanks to my editors, Darlene, Ian, and Xavier.

A hug? A  H  U  G?? Ain’t no hobo ever asked for a hug. Most don’t even want food, but he asking for a hug? Susss-picious.

As you know, I’m a freelance writer for hire. Recently I wrote a fun beauty quiz for ASE Beauty where Idris Elba is the wrong answer. I know! I KNOW!!! 

We’re still patiently waiting to hear back from Sundance. August 12 seems so far away. In the meantime, I’d like to congratulate Maya Montrell on becoming a features contributor for The Onion. Me so proud.

Lastly, I want to thank the GOOD web developer erica dreisbach for creating my new WordPress website. Holla at her. She got my website up and running in TWO WEEKS!
