Staring at my computer screen trying to figure out a name and tagline for this blog was a task.
I wrote down names, bounced ideas off of my best friend and boyfriend, sometimes without enthusiasm and lost a lot of confidence.
If I couldn’t even come up with a name that inspired me, what was the point of starting a blog?
I kind of just had to figure out what it was I even wanted to do with the blog, what kind of vibe I wanted to put out and run with it. I wanted to sort of act like the Burn Book from Mean Girls without being ridiculously evil. I wanted to roast celebrities and news makers and myself while making my readers laugh in the way I try to get my friends cracking up when we hang out. Hence Dark Roast was born.
You know when you get together with your girlfriends over coffee to catch up and just start chatting about everything and anything? That’s what this blog is supposed to do. The tagline, “Now Serving Coffee and Tea” refers to serving truth in a sometimes shady way. Anybody who watches RuPaul’s Drag Race or loves Paris Is Burning (as reference points) would know what I’m talking about. It’s what I do. And I want to be good at it.
So you know, I don’t think I’m changing it.
