Go shawty, it’s your birthday

GeorgiaMae.com turns two today! That’s right, this blog launched on September 14, 2008 and to celebrate our birthday Edd and I decided to compile a list of our favorite posts. Here are the ones that made the top ten:

Edd’s Mantra: Not to speak ill of the dead, but…
In this post Edd explained why he agreed with Blender magazine’s declaration that 2pac was the most overrated artist of all time. This post topped our list because of the heated debate that ensued between two readers, GI Magnus and Miss Southern Miss,  in our comments section. If you missed that, be sure to check it out. 

GeorgiaMae’s Top 10 Christmas Songs
Edd and I had so much fun counting your votes for your favorite Christmas jams as you submitted them via email, through our Facebook page and on the blog. It was one of the highlights of our holiday season last year. 

Edd Meets Keith
Oh my, who can forget the story of Edd meeting his idol Keith Sweat? I’m still surprised he didn’t faint or start crying like little girls did at Michael Jackson concerts. (Check this post to see Edd’s photograph with Sweat, the photograph that was Edd’s Facebook profile pic for about 12 months.)

Edd’s Mantra: 28 Things about the Birthday Girl
For my 28th birthday, Edd put together a list of 28 little-known facts about me and posted it on the blog. This post will always have a special place in my heart because even though it is about me, it made me realize how wonderful my hubster is. The fact that he is attentive enough to be able to pull together a list like this is one of the reasons I fell for him. 

The Worst Gift Ever
Edd explains why the Snuggie is for losers. (P.S.  — Edd bought me a Snuggie a year later.) 

If you’re thinking about my baby it don’t matter if you’re black or white
I may have left the theater feeling that Lakeview Terrace would have been better as a Lifetime movie than a big screen flick, but I also left with an idea for a blog post, a post that sparked great conversation about interracial love.

He Said, She Said: In Your Breast Interest
Edd and I discuss breast feeding in public and Edd freaks out as he imagines me whipping out my girls in the middle of Target. Readers have plenty to say too. 

Be fruitful and multiply
A church lady reminds me that my eggs aren’t getting any younger and that I need to start popping out babies because that is true purpose of marriage. 

When Two Become One
Why I changed my name, again. 

Product Placement
This post, which tells of a girl who was removed from class because her hair was making her teacher sick, made it to the first page of Feministing.com and got Georgia Mae readers talking. 

I want to take this time to thank all of our loyal readers, especially those who comment regularly and post links to the blog on your Facebook pages. We appreciate you so much. I’ve said before that my goal for Georgia Mae is that it will become a true online community for frank discussions on women’s and minority issues, media, and music. To make this happen we would love to see readers leaving more comments on posts as we enter our third year. Here we go!



  1. I too would like to give a shout out to all of our dedicated contributors, loyal readers, and of course the wifey for her hard work in keeping things together. This blog has been a dream of hers and it’s great to see it realized.

    GeorgiaMae.com has grown exponentially over the past two years. Keep spreading the word! And many thanks for the love and support.
