“Having or displaying an intense or ferocious aggressiveness.”
“Furiously active or determined.”
I have been working on my new blog name and approach for quite some time. This isn’t exactly the way I wanted to debut the change, but circumstances regarding my Instagram account pushed me forward a little quicker.
A little while I ago, I started receiving hundreds of new followers on Instagram and they were not organic. In fact they were purchased by a third party I’m certain I know. You can apparently buy followers for someone else and the only thing you need is their user name. Purchases can be as low as $5 for 2k of followers.
I worked with Instagram and they did me a solid and cleaned them out. But everyday I would get 10-100 of these same accounts, mostly men, from countries like India, Iraq and Europe. All of them have no interest or similarities with my content. The only option I have to stop the new accounts is to go private and change my user name.
So I changed my name and here I am:
I am not Sasha Fierce, I have no alter ego. I am simply me.
A small but powerful and fierce being.
There was no better word that I could think of that could better describe me as a whole. I do all things whether wrong or right with fierce determination.
It doesn’t mean I’m cruel or harsh! It means I’m persistent, knowledgeable, valuing others, doing what it takes to get anything and everything done. I am a force to be reckoned with. I have been through abuse, divorce, miscarriages, betrayal, hurt, love, happiness, sorrow, despair, joy and sorrow.
In my almost 34 years of life, I feel confident in saying, “I have been through a lot, but there is still much I have yet to go through”.
You can call this “feisty” or “fiery” or “strong”. But it comes down to the same thing: This fierce woman is no shrinking violet. She speaks her mind, she stands up to authority when authority is wrong, she does the right thing regardless of what law or conventional wisdom says to do.
