Blog Update for November 2, 2017

Blog Update

I just wanted to give you a heads up (because people are wondering) about the next blog post and the changes I mentioned in a previous post.

New Posts/Changes/Additions

I will actually have two new blog posts coming this weekend – one is my first list post and the other is a regular blog post on a missing person. I have wanted to write my own crime list posts for some time now, so I decided to just go for it. I hope you enjoy them! read more

Changes to TrueCrimeDiva.com

Changes

Hello readers!

I’m back and enjoyed my much-needed and well-deserved break! It’s amazing what a break can do! F**k the haters. Quite frankly, it’s rare that I get them. So when I do get them and get them all at once, it slightly pisses me off. ­čśÇ However, the power is in my hands, and I will use it.

Anyway…

I just wanted to take some time to let you know there will be some changes to TrueCrimeDiva.com over the next few months. read more

PLEASE READ: Taking a Break

Taking a break

Just wanted to give you a heads up that I am taking a week off from blogging and approving comments, as well as Twitter.

I need a break. The last post I wrote on Kenneka Jenkins (post has since been taken down) caused quite a stir, and the trolls came out. I deleted all the nasty comments towards me and the article so you were never able to view them. But it just wore me out and pissed me off, so I became Negative Nancy BIG time. read more

True Crime Diva on Reddit and Elsewhere

It has come to my attention that a user on Reddit is sharing my articles. No biggie. However, this person is NOT giving me proper credit. Shocker. Smh.

So, of course people who previously visited or currently visit my blog are asking if that’s me. I have had this happen on Twitter as well.

if the user name is not “truecrimediva” then it is not me.

The only exception is Facebook because some asshole used “truecrimediva” as their personal profile username before I created my page. On Facebook, I go by “originaltruecrimediva.” read more

Here, I will review true crime, crime fiction, and mystery thrillers. I will also interview authors if given the privilege to do so.

So far, I have only one review up right now. The goal is to eventually read and review one book a week. read more

Blog UpdateHello!

Here’s another blog update for ya!┬áI’ve spent the last few days working on two posts that will be published Wednesday, June 29, 2016. Because I also work, I have come up with a writing/publishing schedule that fits my offline schedule. I want to be able to put more posts out there each week instead of a couple every month or so. read more

True Crime Diva Update

As you may know, I am currently on hiatus from this blog to focus on other things. You may also know that from time to time, I MUST take a break from writing because of the subject matter. And you also may know that I struggle with keeping this blog from time to time as well. I’m so over that.

This break has helped me reflect on my life – online and offline – as well as the future of this blog. Stepping away has done wonders for me! As tempted as I was to let go of truecrimediva.com, I just can’t. I’ve had this blog for 6 years! But┬áin those 6 years, I have endured a lot in my personal life. The worst being┬áwhen┬áI became a parent of a missing child. I’ve┬ánever really talked about it on here because it was the WORST time of my life to date. Thankfully, my child returned home, but the whole experience caused me grief, confusion, anger, and a hell of a lot more. ┬áI went from writing about missing children to being the parent of one. I saw things from that point of view, and let me tell you, it changes you. I found it very hard to put any effort into this blog because of the subject matter and what I went through with my own child. I lost all interest in this blog. read more
