Pardon this mess

Dammit. I wasn't expecting company this weekend. I probably should have spruced the place up a little.

Punched up the "about me" section. Come up with a new subtitle for the banner. Thought up some better, more substantive posts. I've really been meaning to do all that for awhile. Sorry for the mess.

At this point, you might be wondering: What the hell is he talking about?

Well, I've been fortunate enough to receive an invite to become a regular contributor over at PostBourgie. The "official" announcement was made today. So maybe I'll have a few more guests than usual - which means it won't be just me, my mama, some friends from high school and the First Lady in the room anymore.

But on the real, and with all due sincerity, I'm grateful for the opportunity to join the PB fam. I'm totally humbled to become part of such a talented, dynamic, thoughtful, witty and welcoming collective. I hope that I can keep up the standard they've set over there.

What does that mean for False Hustle?

Well, I don't know. I've never done this before. But I imagine I'll do my usual music lists, random video posts, link dumps and more personal type stuff over here. I'll cross-post the longer, weighter pieces at PB. We'll see how it goes. That's all subject to change.

In the meanwhile, thanks for coming, thanks for sticking around and thanks for - in advance - checking me out over at PostBourgie.

Hey, amigo - did you want a new banner for your blog, or perhaps to edit the banner with your new subtitle? If so, let me know and I can try to make another for you.

Sorry it's taken me so long to respond. You all know how I do ... or at least some of you do. I try to get back at everyone.

@maria: True dat, you're not from my high school or related to me. But in another way, all of the regular commenters - you, AT, Jack, Bougie - feel like my extended fam. We all don't know each other, but I feel like we know each other. Dig?

@Kia: Hey, thanks for stopping by and appreciate the good word. I hope I give you a reason to read.

@AT: Dude, you already there. I'm just trying to catch up.

@JP: I'll get at you about that on FB. But in a word: yes. And thanks.

@Bougie: Lol. Aw, stop it. You gonna make me blush.

And let me not forget Cami either. She's damn near like a play cousin or something.

Btw, the ironic thing about all this is that i used to clown the First Lady for being such an avid fan of PB. She'd come home and start talking about something G.D. or Shani-o or universeexpanding have blogged about, and I'd accuse her of ignoring my whole online operation. Like, I would play a little jealous.

So it was funny, to me at least, when I told her about the invite. I was like, 'now you can finally read my stuff.'

Yeah. It probably wasn't all that funny.
