It’s been 4 1/2 since I started at The Root and ventured into a full-time writing career. I came to the site when we were barely getting 6 million page views a month, and this past May, while covering for my two writers (Breanna and Anne), I garnered over 8 million page views on my own, pushing the site to have it’s largest month of traffic ever. But as with most things in life, they come to an end. Friday was my last day, and I’m heading to Essence magazine as their Editorial Director of News, Politics and Activism.

Of course there are a couple of people who I’ll miss...others will probably never hear from me again. Such is life, right?  See you on the other side of the internet!
