Well we've come to an end of another year. I'd just like to thank all of my daily readers for all of your love and encouragement throughout 2008. Maintaining a blog that aims to speak to an audience that is often overlooked and underrepresented in the mainstream media is no small task. I appreciate you telling me when I got things right and even when I got some things wrong.
As I continue to grow as a writer and activist I hope that you will stick around and become active participants in my journey. In 2008 I saw a glimpse of the person I could ultimately become as well as the far reaching effects of this blog. I promise to take it to the next level in 2009(*subtle cue to the haters to get ready*).
Take a look in the rearview mirror with me and revisit some of the most popular, controversial, and most linked posts from Living Out Loud with Darian in 2008 below.
I will be taking the rest of the week off to enjoy the holiday with Trey. Have a safe and prosperous New Year until we meet again on Monday!
