Most people don’t look forward to growing older, but we at the Brew are loving it. We are looking forward to a better year than last year. Year two and three wasn’t that great or that bad. Let’s see, I got shot during year two, so I grew lazy and it carried over to year three. But year four, I’m starting off more energetic than previous years. So to celebrate four, we decided to put together four of the best articles that the Brew has offered.
The first I am most excited about is an article I wrote originally in June of 2012 called Americans Without Accounts. It’s an epidemic today that Americans do not have banking intuitions that they conduct business with. That’s why there are so many check cashing places and most of your grocery stores will cash checks. It is big business, even Walmart will now cash your payroll check.
The main thing that excited me about this article was two years later, MSNBC.com sort of piggybacked on my article. So, it made me feel like I do know what I’m doing and I might can make it in this industry. Here’s the link: http://www.dailybrewconnection.com/lifestyles/archives/05-2014
Secondly, I have to take my hat off to my guest contributor Sharice Styles. Originally, The Brew wanted to focus on health and beauty issues. But our interests have grown and our time allotted to The Brew has shrunk. Without her input, our Beauty and its Beast section and our Lifestyles section would be pretty much empty.
So special shout out to her for doing something that touches many people by surprise. And hats off to her for minimizing the gloom in someone’s life and putting a smile back on their faces. I’m talking about Sharice’s Breast Cancer Makeover, here’s the link: http://www.dailybrewconnection.com/beauty-and-its-beast
Third, I will say would be my Political Awareness section. People need to become more aware of their political surroundings. It really doesn’t matter whether someone is a Republican or a Democrat; a jerk is a jerk no matter what side he or she is on or what suit he or she is wearing. But not enough people get involved with politics, that’s why your elected officials can do the dumbest things and not have to worry about consequences. Here’s my article about Tea Party obstructionism: http://www.dailybrewconnection.com/political-awareness
Number four is not last by any means; it’s more like we saved the best for last. This one will always be my favorite, my first editor, and The Brew’s first guest. My interview with author Dina Rae. http://www.dailybrewconnection.com/books/archives/03-2012
There were just so many to choose from, but these four are special to me. And in year four I have something special for you. My oldest son, TJ is not much of a contributor now since he is in college. But his brother will now join in as a contributor. In year four I want to start an awards program, but haven’t found out how I’m going to do it just yet and what to consider as merit. Perhaps if you visit us bi-weekly, we could figure it and grow together. Until next time, have fun!
