One year ago this week I put up my first post on this site. To say that I had no idea what it would eventually grow into, would be a huge understatement. I had been meaning to register a domain name and setup a website for months and one day I just broke down and copped nahright.com and bought 3 months of hosting for like 10 dollars or something like that. I was the guy in my circle of friends who always had the hot new mixtape or the scoop on what was going on with our favorite rappers, so I figured this could be a place for those people to come and get their news and shit talk on.
We used to spend hours on my block having conversations (read: arguments) not unlike what goes down in the comments section now on a daily basis. That’s why I used that picture up there for my header image, it was a way of bringing the shit talk off the street and onto the internet where everybody could jump in and take part, regardless of age, color, or geographic location. In the last year I’ve met and interacted with so many interesting and smart people. I’ve learned things and hopefully I’ve helped people learn a thing or two themselves.
I’d like to thank all of the people all over the world who come here everyday and read what I have to say. I’d also like to thank all of the people who take the time to send me emails and leave comments thanking me for helping them get through their work day or putting them on to a new song by their favorite artist. Shout out to all of the incredible blogs that linked me and made my hits skyrocket. Props to all of the regular commenters who hold down the site for days on end, patiently waiting for my next post and showing love immediately after it’s been put up. Shout out to SOHH for believing in me and helping to launch my career as a semi-pro blogger. Props to XXL for also recognizing real and helping me get to the next step.
It’s been an incredible year and you can trust that I’ll do everything in my power to keep bringing it over the next 365 days. Thank you all.
