After reflecting on our recent discussion, I have decided it’s time for me to take a back seat and give you the responsibility of administering the blog. Although 6 of us started it, the reality is that there has to be someone to oversee it. Over the years by default and by choice, I have been the one doing the work to administer the blog.
You will now have the main responsibility of moving the AfroSpear into the future to where you envision it needs to be. The main difference between to “talking the talk”, and “walking the talk” is commitment and work. So in the interest of full disclosure, here is some of the work that you need to be aware of: the AfroSpear hotmail account will need to be monitored. We get lots of emails everyday for a variety of reasons. Some want to be added to our blogroll, some want info. on the Googlegroup, some submit articles for consideration for posting, etc. Comments need to be approved. You will need to decide what to do about AfroSpear Initiatives at Kiva, Pic of the week, Chocolate Sundaze and Sat’day Riddymz, as I will no longer be administering them.
Many, especially the AfroSphere and AfroSpear members will be watching (some with popcorn) your vision, commitment and efforts to take the AfroSpear forward into the future. I will continue to participate with posts and in discussions, however you now have control of steering this ship to where it needs to go.
