So scroll down and find the most interesting points, you would love to know about!

I wanted to pause here at my three month anniversary of writing for NewsBreak. I wanted to reflect on what I've accomplished and to exhale a little. I also wanted to say Thanks to all those that thought I was worth the space in your NewsBreak "FOLLOWING" list. I appreciate each of you so very much! I couldn't believe it, when I received email from NewsBreak saying, I had reached 500 followers. And as I'm writing this over the weekend, I have over 1000! Some of my fellow contributors reached this point in less time, some it took longer. I dance for them and myself. We did it!

Kaye is my real name, but I kept hearing that you have to narrow your brand down to a niche. First I'm human, and as Maya Angelou says,(as she quotes Terentius Afer, an African enslaved by the Romans around 150 BC. Later to be freed.) ‘I am a human being, nothing human can be alien to me’. We are human, and we have complex needs, abilities, wants, and desires. In my writing I want to have the human factor. When we have conversations with others, we tend to discuss a plethora of subjects ,how could I narrow all this down to one subject, nor did I want to...and Everything Kaye was born!

" I'm always in search of ways to defy others expectations of me."

I'm really a YouTube channel watcher, I didn't have any social media before NewsBreak, (yes the debate continues about if YouTube is a social media), so besides YouTube, I didn't have a presence. As a writer, I knew I would need a presence since I'm an introvert and I couldn't just throw a book out there, especially a memoir. And expect people to purchase it. Especially, if I planned on self publishing it. But I didn't know what to do?

I follow a lot of New York based YouTubers, because that's where I vacation each year, and I take online classes with Gotham Writers Workshop, and they have pop-up classes in the park each year. And of course the Tribeca Film Festival is a must for me! But one day I was watching a YouTuber named Alma Shine, she's based in NYC, she does videos about her and her families life in New York. She also sells beautiful Self Lovin' gift boxes and Self-Care Kits on Etsy, MiraFloresxo. But one day she said she wrote for NewsBreak, and I thought...what's that? Thinking maybe it was New York based. I found the app and downloaded it. I saw she made videos but I also saw that others just wrote articles, now that got me interested. So you write about local news happening, food, and anything else you think readers in their community would like. I wrote my first article that day. Community garage sales are in full swing in Huber Heights, Ohio. People loved it, and I think adding in the human factor with personal stories helps my articles stand out. You never know what articles will do well, so I just write articles that I would love to come across and read.
