Welcome to your NEW favorite email.
Welcome to Monday Lunch by me, Jemia.
Who Am I?
wife. unapologetically Black. creative. writer. diversity practitioner. social media strategist. alpha woman 💗💚. creator + founder of @blackwifelife
What is this about?
I’ve been a writer for years. Always loved putting pen to paper, well actually, in high school I had an e-journal before they even existed. I typed my thoughts, rants, and raves via WordPerfect (how many people just went back down memory lane?).
In 2018 I finally started blogging and my tribe rallied around and supported me. I did love it, but I still felt a little restricted. I was working for a company that was hella nosey. Like they were all UP in your business. And that was cool when I was in my mid-20’s, but baby, I tried to create separation once I got grown-ish, I still feel like I can’t say grown-grown yet, but they always seem to find me. So I still censored myself, a little bit.
But now, the real and authentic Jemia is here in my newsletter. No more censorship, no more tip-toeing, no nothing but just me.
An email is a little more personal than a blog post, and I feel like I can go there knowing this reaches your inbox and is not showing up in a rando Google search. Plus, I’m tired of telling y’all to click the link in my bio to read my blog. So I am throwing in the TILE! Cause the majority of y’all wasn’t listening anyway.
Ok, so what are you going to talk about?
Pretty much everything. But here is a highlight reel.
I got laid off, and I am a brand new entrepreneur
I moved to a state I’ve never lived in before
Trending topics and Twitter threads
90s and early 00s nostalgia
I run an IG account with almost 90K followers, I might drop some social media tips/tricks
Things I’m into
+ whatever the hell else I feel like talking about.
Disclaimer: This newsletter will contain adult language occasionally. I will talk about race, I will talk about white privilege, and I will talk about how BLACK BEEN KING! Diversity & Inclusion is my day job, so I know how to finesse certain topics/discussions. I’m not here to talk down on anyone or any group of people, I’m just shooting you straight, #nofilter.
Sign up now so you don’t miss the first issue. Dropping on the 1st and 3rd Monday’s @ 11:30a ET every month!
West coasters, this is more like Monday Breakfast for you, but hey, you get it.
In the meantime, tell your friends!
