Allow Me To Reintroduce Myself...

Allow me to re-introduce myself
My name is Hov', OH, H-to-the-O-V
I used to move snowflakes by the O-Z
I guess even back then you can call me
CEO of the R-O-C, 
Jay-Z - Public Service Announcement

Allow me to reintroduce myself.. My name is...Fool, you know me. I’m Rashan.. Rashan Jamal… Used to be T. Casanova… Used to be the blogging equivalent of Prince. You know blogging prolifically like he put out music. I guess, Lil Wayne would be a more contemporary example, but I just can’t compare myself to him. I used to blog 5 times a week, sometimes 6. I used to read and comment all the time. But then I stopped.

There was no reason for it other than I felt like stopping. How very self absorbed of me. And I went out like I said I would. No fanfare, no fake posts teasing that I’m gonna quit so people will beg me to stay. I always felt those posts were disingenuous and basically cries for attention. So, when I felt like stopping, I just stopped. A month went by with no new posts, and I guess people finally got the point. Rashan’s Beats Rhymes and Life was done.

But today is a new day… I think I’m back. I say “think” because I don’t want to be one of those bloggers that goes away for awhile, then comes back and posts once every fiscal quarter. If I come back, then I want to be back for good. So, fair warning… this blogging thing might not stick. For awhile I felt like I said everything there was to say in my 3 years of blogging. I felt like I was repeating myself. I felt like it was too much effort to keep up with everybody, when all I wanted to do was come home and watch a movie. Okay, real spit.. I wanted a new blog template, but if I got one it would have lost all my old comments. And you guys left some of the funniest comments and I sure don’t want to lose those. Sometimes, I just pull up my 2 old blogs and just crack up. Most of the time at myself.. but at the comments too. (Yep, I’m still conceited.)

I noticed that a lot of the blog world has fallen off, so we’ll see if anybody is still out there reading. If so, welcome back. If you are new… then welcome to my madness. Let’s start the show…
