Salutations and welcome to NuDawn Diary, part of NuDawn NuDay.
My name is Dawn Williams, aka NuDawn, and after a life changing experience a few years ago I decided (with a little push!), to start writing blogs to share with the masses.
I’ve touched upon quite a few subjects to date, and I really hope that you’ll enjoy reading about them and the life, times, thoughts and opinions of a way too Black to stand back woman trying to make it through life – but ultimately trying to keep it real!
I call it my diary because it’s my real thoughts in real talk.
THERE ARE CUSS WORDS, SLANG AND BROKEN ENGLISH!
I don’t expect you to agree with me on everything and I’m up for a healthy debate, but you have been warned! If you’re easily offended I may not be the one for you! Below are my uncategorised blogs, or you could check out the different categories available for you to get stuck into!
Family Matters – Blood may well be thicker than water, but sometimes that just makes it harder to swallow!
R.I.P’d Off! – A series of posts relating to various incidents of being Black whilst breathing.
The Big C And Me – Accompany me on my cancer journey.
BLAPOW! – My new blog & podcast combo, celebrating the Blacknificent Power of…whatever it happens to be! I’m starting with women who are making their mark in my hometown as a project for Black History Month, but will be covering a number of topics overall.
Poetry & Particulars – A random selection of poems and odds and sods.
Aside from the blogs and podcasts there is my online shop, NuDawn NuDay, which will be up and running soon, offering a selection of Afrocentric cards, T-shirts and more to come.
