Necole Bitchie

The blog world is buzzing about blogger Necole Bitchie's Come To Jesus moment in a tear-soaked video posted on her Youtube.com channel on Wednesday.

Last year, Necole shocked millions of readers by announcing she was shuttering her wildly popular gossip blog Necolebitchie.com.

Nearly a year later, Necole is flat broke and nearly homeless.

It was a spectacular fall from grace for a woman who was once the most celebrated black blogger in the blogosphere.

What most people don't know is that Necole built her audience by poaching readers from another top black blogger in 2007.

She craftily used that blogger's platform to launch Necolebitchie.com in late 2007.

Necole was one of the first black bloggers to hire a publicist to walk her down red carpets at celebrity events.

The strategy worked. The publicity helped take Necolebitchie.com to #1 in the black blogosphere.

8 years later, in her final post in July 2015, she announced she was quitting blogging to find a "higher purpose" in life.

Necole resurfaced in August 2015 with a new blog called xoNecole.com.

Despite her lofty ambitions for the new blog, xoNecole never really took off.

On Wednesday, Necole posted a deeply personal Youtube video titled "#1: What They Forgot To Tell Me About Leaving A Successful Brand".

In the video, Necole revealed she was penniless and nearly homeless.

Fighting back tears, she said she text her aunt to ask if her old room was still available.

"I went from on top… and almost a year later… asking my aunt can I move back home," she said.

"I ran out of money 3 times," she said. "I did a good job of faking the funk and making the site look like it was poppin.'"

She now says she regrets her overly ambitious decision to launch xoNecole.com as some sort of inspirational blog for young black women.

Necole learned the hard way that her readers visit her blog for gossip, not inspiration.

  • Soda

    I wonder who that top Black blogger is? Hmmm.

  • Angela

    I know this makes some people so very happy....She will be just fine...

  • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

    Running a blog and trying to live the lifestyle of the those you blog about will RUIN you..duh...
    Anywho Goodmorning yall and Nicole here ya go...

  • JamaicanBreddah

    I haven't been to her blog in decades. Anyhoo i aint watching that long vid. How you work for years and end up broke? Living beyond ones means I'm sure.

  • Hill Candy

    Interesting!

  • Lisa daniels

    Sandra, she stole from you?

  • RespectSelf

    Well this is sad. I hope that she is able to get together. The sad thing is that she was trying to do something that is "better" for people, but people don't want what is best for them smh.

  • Lurk_Mode_Off

    Right. But this girl lacks financial education. Ran out of money 3 times tho??

  • Phuck_trump

    It's never good to revel in someone else's downfall, especially when y'all used to be cool. Wish em well and move on, and never forget ANYBODY can fall off tomorrow.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Well I feel bad for her. Not gonna kick her while she's down. I'm sure she'll find her way back. You can only go up from here.

  • Phuck_trump

    Yep, I used to be a faithful reader til she shut it down, but I really enjoyed hearing about her life. It's crazy how negative people can be.

  • MissyJ

    Auntie I know you somewhere cackling so imam cackle with you.... #pettypeople

  • Phuck_trump

    Eggzacklee what I'm saying. Nobody's guaranteed to thrive always. Same person wishing her bad could lose their money or health one day.

  • MissyJ

    I dunno her last I'm leaving post reeked of self importance and haughtiness. I'm all for expanding your horizons and not wasting ALL you time with frivolity but her post was like when people announce they are leaving social media because people shouldn't waste their time and there are so many better things to do blah blah blah

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    I feel bad for her. She's had a hard life. It seems messy blogging keeps the lights on.

  • Angela

    So you think that's the real reason she's broke and not the reason she gave?...

  • ShelbyMoore

    She was doing her best trying to keep up with the Joneses.

  • iyonah

    Well... I hate to say this, but you are right about why people go to blogs for the most part. I tried to read the xoNecole but the post were regurgitated twitter/facebook conversation topics and the writing was often basic. I understand wanting to grow, because we all want that in a way, transition is tough. I hope she finds her place.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Raise your hand if you are now pretty much convinced that as a lass in Florida/NY/England...that Sandra was the mean girl in school

  • iyonah

    She did in a way, I remember as it was happening. Went from a commenter, to linking at times, to being entirely competitive with SR.

  • Soda

    Why didn't she start out trying to do something "better?" It seems some people will do whatever to be popular, then want to change & be more respectable later, as we see with Nene Leakes.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    +1.

  • Chauncey Brooks

    "Coming soon a Gofundme page."- When liberalism becomes unemployment.

  • iyonah

    They did, it seems like traveling creates this attitude in people.

  • MissyJ

    Nawl Sandra was picked ON which is why now as an adult she has morphed to be the mean girl she couldn't be before

  • Ace

    Auntie somewhere giddy as hell...

  • 100milesperhour

    Is this some indirect, passive aggressive way of getting a GoFundMe account started for herself?

  • Incog-knee-gress

    I think its the opposite. She was all out mean and now after many, MANY years... she has perfected her own brand of shade.

  • Libra80sBaby

    I feel bad for her....we fall down, but we get up. But that bleaching she did.....NEVER riding with her on that.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Never read Necole's blog like that. A little way back when. Das it. Good tidings to ya though.

  • hi-liter

    She wants a Go Fund Me account?

  • Libra80sBaby

    She miss her Caucasian home with her Caucasian things....nothing else.

  • JJ

    Agreed I'm not gone talk bad or kick her while she's down or say a bunch of should've, could've, would've all I have to say for her is be blessed and stat strong life has highs and lows.

  • hi-liter

    LOL. Caucasian living ain't easy chile.

  • Libra80sBaby

    That page was so damn JUNKY!! I cannot deal with a HOARDER type website...I aint got time

  • Sucker Free

    Soooo..she didn't even purchase a home? Just put all her money into the new website?

    yea...press reset hun...

    Auntie...fun fact...i found your site whilst visiting necolebitchie...one of her readers namedropped you in the comments ?

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I liked some of the post she had on the new blog.

  • http://Copblock.org Brenden’s Back #BlockDeez?

    She was driven by ambition. Motivated by current events. Tired of the labels attributed to Black women. Wanted to motivate and inspire young women to aspire for more. I get it. She took some risks. I get it. I get it, I get it, I get it. I once headed an organization that mentored Black youth. I was exhausted to the point of depression. Nothing I could do for those kids,,,Nothing was ever enough for me. No amount of new clothes, new sneakers, biblical passages, nothing could erase the pain of a tortured life from their eyes. Nothing. I get it. I had to step away, much like she stepped out on faith with the intentions of motivating, I had to step away and distance myself. Yeah. Not going to bother watching the video. I wish this Sista all the best??

  • ShelbyMoore

    We all fall down, it's the way that we get up that matters. Good luck to her.

  • LibraGirlonly

    I don't get a off on others folks misery. I have never been to her site but I wish her success with her goals.

  • yes yes, ya’ll!

    *hand raised*

  • Guess Who

    SMH...and you're enjoying every minute of it, Sandra. Gosh I thought black brits weren't as petty, hateful and simple as you constantly show yourself to be. You have kept your chapped lips on this woman off and on for YEARS...GREEN with envy over her success AND looks. Now she's down and out and you decide to make it a topic. How very classless and small of you.

  • Lurk_Mode_Off

    Sandra inspired her. And Necole has a brand too and she can still have success. Enough bread for evrbody to eat

  • TheRealLee

    So you move on with your life and find something else to do. I want to be a runway model and live in an $10M NYC apartment; Not happening. So .......

  • MyNameIs

    Maybe Sandra is bringing attention to it to help her get attention to her current blog. (I didn't laugh while typing this....I swear)

  • http://www.beautyisland.weebly.com Indigo

    Sooo TS or none of them other sponsors came thru, or nah? All that hob nobbin and gobblin I'd be saltier than a fish honey..

  • ShelbyMoore

    How is she paying for these trips if she's broke and doesn't have any investors?

  • http://Copblock.org Brenden’s Back #BlockDeez?

    Indeed. I remember when the shade room surpassed balleralert in follower count. A blog that copied the format of the other, but promising messiness and shade. I have insider/behind the scenes info on that drama, allegedly. Maybe some other time...

  • MyNameIs

    I don't celebrate people's downfalls....I stay as far away from karma as I can.

  • Lurk_Mode_Off

    Oh and people do want inspiration Sandra. She just have to find that audience.There are many making multiple 6 figures "inspiring" folks, telling them what they wanna hear

  • Guess Who

    LOL...maybe! Don't get me wrong, I know Sandra is the queen of shade and I do get a chuckle or two off of backhanded compliments, facetious questions and absurd comments however sometimes she goes BEYOND that. I know, it's her blog, she can run it how she sees fit but we can comment on it. Yall know she was being amazon rainforest shady with this. lol

  • ShelbyMoore

    Or Sandra was trying to send people over to her new blog. #JustAThought

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    ??

  • PhenomenalWomanThatIsMe

    Beautiful. Thank you for bringing some positivity.

  • Guess Who

    LOL...maybe. But yall ain't new to Sandra's antics, lol. SHE is the queen..I mean she created the magna carta for shade. Yall didn't catch that "what most people know is that she got her audience by poaching...blah, blah, blah" comment? LOL! Sandra sitting up drinking tea, eating crumpets LHAO @ this.

  • che’lint

    Who is they? And why should they tell you anything?

  • yes yes, ya’ll!

    Rarely read her blog but what's wrong with uplifting and inspiring WOC, living the dream and being her own boss? I watched video and she's being humble, admitting mistakes and striving to do better. Isn't that what we want for anybody?

  • Saharabutnotdry

    Dummy . That's all I got .

  • MyNameIs

    True! She should have stuck to the other site. Its sad to say but in blogging...gossip and negativity pays the bills but she went another route. She wanted to be positive and have celeb friends vs catering to her audience. Sandra probably set for life as far as bills are concerned.

  • I aint the one

    I'm at the DMV so I have nothing but time to watch the vid.

    I never frequented NecoleBitchie, I thought her brand of reporting was way too patronizing and "kiss-assy" But when she launched XONecole, I must say I was impressed by the quality of content being posted. It was very much like essence.com, madamenoire, forharriet, etc.

    In the video, she says she funded the idea completely out of pocket and didn't want to rely on investors. Most entrepernuers who take this approach run into trouble early. But as a young woman investing in herself and once again building a brand from the ground up, I think her story is an inspiration and I applaud her honesty.

    She is not abadoning XONecole and is very much still committed to making it work: this is what she said in the video. Her purpose for making the video was to let others know, the path to your dreams is a hard one. You'll see a lot of failure in that road to realizing your dreams, but if you want it and you commit to it, it's as good as yours (hardships be damned). I think millenials and children of generation z need to see more vids like hers so they understand instant gratification will almost never lead you to anything worthwhile in this fight to manifest your visions/dreams.

    I'm rooting for Necole. She'll find her way.

  • hi-liter

    Ms. Sandra, if you don't mind me asking, how much can a top blogger (like yourself) make in a year? You seem like you may be conservative in your spending, unless you are purchasing those designer backpacks you like so much.

  • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

    I think Nicole was hobnobbing before she switch to the inspirational side. She wallowed in the celebrity of others celebrity..so now her she see..none of her celebrity "Friends" are really her friends..cuz why she at her momma nem house?

  • che’lint

    ???

  • SummerBaby

    Good luck to her. Ain't nothing fun about being broke. I think it's crazy that people complain about gossip blogs, but not enough people will visit a lifestyle blog or whatever format she had.

  • hi-liter

    Interesting. I didn't know Ms. Sandra was British. With the accent and everything?

  • Yardgirl

    All of what you said!

  • I aint the one

    I'm with you on all of this, B! But the video is actually her testimony that despite the hardships she faced, she's still going strong. Listen, the point behind her making the video was to acknowledge the fact that being in business for yourself is not easy, but you have to be committed for the long haul in order to ensure your success. The site is still up and running.

  • SameoleJ

    shuttering her wildly popular gossip blog Necolebitchie.com.--Did she really say Shuttering or is this a typo?!

    Other than that......being broke and losing it all is a terrible place to be, but it can be humbling and if done right you can grow from it. Hopefully Necole does this.

  • che’lint

    Thank you for that summary. ? I couldn't watch the video. Yes, good luck to her and hopefully someone hears her message.

  • KayCal

    I agree with you. I didn't like her other site, but I do like the new direction. She has to understand that when trying to go positive, you will never AT FIRST have as mush success as going negative. However, her time is coming. She will be just fine. It might not ever be like her 1st site, but peace and purpose are priceless in comparison.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Let's talk about Queen Sugar

  • nucynu25

    I used to like Nicole's site ... She's talented & beautiful ..she will be alright .

  • Sara

    I wish black women would celebrate and encourage each other instead of knocking each other down. It's hate all through this post. It's sickening.

  • robertoV05

    If I wasn't married I'd be her captain, she hot...

  • MsSincerity

    Reminds me of Toni Childs when she left Girlfriends. That show was on and poppin and then she left voluntarily, f--k--g up the whole show, only to be later found in a Baileys liquor commercial. I'm like...this is what you left for? (blank stare, flared nostrils)

  • SameoleJ

    I didn't watch the video, so thank you for the insight and I agree with what you wrote and what she said. She took a leap of faith on herself and wanted to change who she was....NOTHING wrong with that. Now I want to visit the new site to see what it is about.

  • Genia

    oh wow....i really tried to get into xoNecole but i could not make the crossover...i would read it and be like...WEY WHUTT? awwww that is too bad but it does not have to be the end. She will be back in no time i'm certain

  • nucynu25

    ????

  • I aint the one

    Thank you! What's wrong with giving a mission, a purpose, your everything, even if it means temporary failure?

    Listen, if that girl decided to start posting gossiping chot again, she'd be back on top. That's too easy. It's much harder to sacrifice temporary comfort for the sake of persuing something you truly believe in.

  • MyNameIs

    I used to visit frequently but when I'm at work I need something interesting to get me through the day. XO wasn't it.

  • nucynu25

    Or Gina leaving Martin ...

  • yes yes, ya’ll!

    ?? ??

  • Buttercup

    Let's. Ooooh, where to begin?

  • MyNameIs

    I think it's supposed to be shutting but I'm sure Sandra was in a rush to post this. :-)

  • nucynu25

    Right , honestly I want the mess & shade ...I ain't trying to find happiness from a blogger.

  • SameoleJ

    Exactly!!

  • Genia

    dayum Petty

  • MissHarlem

    Not my thing to cheer for another sista downfall. Even if I don't like you. I will probably giggle if you did something to me personally and even that will be done in private. My energy is not blessed nor used properly if I lived like that. All the best to her. Didn't visit any of her sites but didn't wish bad either.

  • I aint the one

    Yasss, Kay. Peace and purpose will always trump everything else.

  • Ed.

    Auntie - so nice of you to make some publicity for your colleague/friend/sister !!! I watched the whole video - and now I feel like giving Xonecole a chance ! :)

  • Quitedeliteful

    This is a damn shame!! Girlfriend shoulda stuck to what she does best which is dispense gossip. If I want inspiration I'll tune into Deepak Chopra or T.D. Jakes...

  • NaeNae2015

    Right!! I got healed from that quite awhile ago!!

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I knew this would happen. I used to love her site until she started having others write articles for her. My gf was actually a part of the XO tribe at first. Thought she would get her articles published on the site but nah Necole used only people who had journalism degrees to publish on her positive site. I felt bad because my gf was up all night sending articles to her to post with no response...every time I bring it up she curses me out lol.

  • SameoleJ

    Hey Baby!!! All of what you said. I have stepped out on faith and it failed, so I had to step back out on faith about 2 more times for it to succeed. She wanted to be a better person and with that transition many "friends and associates" will leave..in her case it was blog visits. The right people will find her and she will be good. I so love your spirit!!

  • Saharabutnotdry

    Nothing tops SR.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    +1 All of this.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Whew. So much to unpack. It's such a phenomenal show.

  • nucynu25

    Life happens ..I am more than sure T.D.Jakes would appauld her struggle for positivity ...

  • SameoleJ

    Amen!!

  • LabellaMior

    I wish her the best..but I will say this..blogging times have changed and from visiting other blogs online and on IG..people love when a blogger put celebs on blast, expose or, reveil that their favorite singer/rapper/ actor dun got caught up with a groupie, drugs or any other shock value gossip. This is what the new generation likes...look at TSR and Famelous... for example.

  • nucynu25

    Bloop

  • SameoleJ

    And tell her how he failed a few times and even sold chicken dinners before he saw success!!

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Going to plan spring break 2017. BBL.

  • LibraGirlonly

    It's the people on Sandra Rose blog that keeps me coming back. Beautiful minds and spirits.

  • PhillyFacts

    I use to visit her blog back in the "Charles" days here at SR. "Another top black blogger" yup she stole some of SR loyals back in the day I remember. Her comment section was a little distasteful at times, and Sandy would never have that she use to ban folks left and right including me once for calling Tiny a name lmbo. Look how the world turns; may God bless this sister to humble herself, and live within her means.

  • missmiami305

    Dayum aunty you been dragging her for years. Lmao!!! Sn, but she travels around the world. How is the broke though.........Damn people stay frontin on social media.

  • nucynu25

    Yep ..gets me through the day .?

  • eljjai

    You know, I don't mean to be mean but I sensed this coming when she started wanting to be a celeb instead of just staying in the background and writing about them.

    Another one eaten up by the fame monster.

  • nucynu25

    I dont think she really listening sis ...

  • SameoleJ

    I think she ran the crew, did the recruiting and even the hazzing.

  • eljjai

    ...no time like the present...

  • missmiami305

    she was good at it though. maybe that was her gift. she left to do something completely opposite. maybe she could have transitioned to doing ish like E or red carpets. Ijs

  • leapyearpisces

    I really liked her new site a lot! Excellent posts on a myriad of topics, but I did notice not as many new posts were being posted, but rather old post were being "bumped" up. It makes sense now. I wish her well. If she rose to the top once, she can do it again. I mean what can she do, we ALL fall down and we have to pick ourselves up. I have nothing but well wishes for her.

  • MyNameIs

    I'm still angry about that!! There's always one that thinks they're bigger and better than the rest of the cast only to realize later that we just loved the character they played on the show.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    My sister and bff are teachers so I'm planning a trip for spring break. Where u guys going?

  • missmiami305

    yes! too much info all at one time. messed with my ocd

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    I feel for her. And I like her site. She'll be just fine. We ALL rise and fall in life. I hope she sticks it out

  • JerseyMom

    I wish I would have invested more in my blogspot Character Corner blog. Now Google won't give my domain back. Some white dude face pops up. Ugh!

    I digress.......

    I met Nicole in Atlanta during Blogging While Brown. She was such a nice person.

    I wish her well. She is making a smart move by v-blogging on YouTube. That should help her blog traffic.

  • I aint the one

    But in the vid, i actually watched it, she says she didn't move back home. She's still in the A, roughing it and puting everything into the new site. I hope she sticks with this new direction. There are far more opportunities for the market she's trying to break into. Way beyong blogging.

  • Soda

    That line about the plantation of the man who wants to buy their land: a museum of our slave ancestors, only the Browns have replaced Blacks (something like that). So true.

  • missmiami305

    but she done traveled the world. how u do that without having a pot to piss in

  • http://Copblock.org Brenden’s Back #BlockDeez?

    Yeah I just watched it. Very inspirational. My error was reading the write up. I didn't want to watch her in the midst of a nervous breakdown. That's not what happens in the video. My hope is to let her testimony be motivation for me. I can't make any promises, but that's my wish for the day...

  • harley_quinn2.0

    This is true

  • MissHarlem

    I'm banned to travel anytime after March ?? have to save on beast mode after Feb. Have fun. I'm sad already ??

  • MyNameIs

    They had issues beyond though....

  • nucynu25

    Yeah, I know like the alleged sexual harrasment ...

  • SameoleJ

    Funny, I receive daily devotionals and today's touched on this exact thing...Passing it on- telling your trials, tribulations, humbling moments, etc. because it goes on to encourage another and help them to keep going. Necole is doing what she is supposed to do with the lesson she learned....more importantly she is growing from it. Takes a lot to be on top, lose it all or a lot of it and tell your story knowing that people will find joy in it. Well Done, Necole- the person this message was for, will receive it.

  • missmiami305

    But how she paid for veeners though.......I didn't see any tears

  • MsSincerity

    They left for different reasons, but I still was pissed about both.

  • Finding Forever…

    I never heard of her until seeing an interview of hers a minute back (almost like a bio). She had to couch surf at some point before blogging & also attended MSU (from some part of Maryland, I believe), so for that I cheered (or at least hoped she succeeded) for her. Sometimes sticking to what you know is BEST, but there is nothing wrong with stepping out on faith too. Best Wishes & Luck To Ya.

  • Django the God

    I think she was from PG and I still didn't read her blog.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    A cruise this year. We normally do the beach or mountains. But a cruise out of Orlando looking like the $$ move.

  • RespectSelf

    lol nobody is perfect... There's a lot of things that people could have did at first, but didn't. I do believe that it helps you in the long run to learn from mistakes.

  • nucynu25

    Everybody's priorities are not the same . As my mom would say "she is young & baby less ..when she eats she can brake the plate ." Maybe she felt like life was more than just a house & working to pay bills . Who knows the lesson , culture & experiences she may have come across while traveling .

  • I aint the one

    She was definitely the damn Gretchen of her class...smh. and the video is nothing but Necole's testimony. The blog is still up and running, she didn't have to move back home, and she said her purpose for making the vid was to inspire others not to be so quick to abandon their dreams when chit gets hard.

  • Saharabutnotdry

    Dark humor etc...

  • Django the God

    She could've did somebody hair or something.

  • Jusstlookn I, II, II

    WHAT? Let me lissen.

  • MsSincerity

    Exactly!....hopefully they'll mend my broken heart by putting making a Girlfriends movie.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Bahamas. I woulda took Mexico tho lol

  • LeBrick James

    Well they say your best teacher is your last mistake. The only problem is when people keep making the same mistakes and never learn from them. So hopefully she'll learn from hers and become even better & stronger after this.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I remember when NB held court in my comments section every morning. When my blog's background was all black. My readers were like, "You need your own blog, Necole." Next thing you know, she starts her own blog and my blog is a ghost town. Tumble weeds and crickets.

    I remember a lone commenter saying all my readers were partying over on Necole's new blog.

    Then she laughed and slammed the blog door.

    That was a low point in my life as a blogger. But not one tear fell. I continued to persevere and I continued doing me.

    Eventually my readers started trickling back.

  • hotntot95

    Um.. girl stop crying...I've been down to $3, and had to put that in my gas tank..if u got your health u can bounce back..

    Whatever. Necole only cares about Necole. She can't even give me my respect due for inspiring her. Apparently her success was a fluke.

  • Sara

    She's a brave woman and she'll get it back and more.

  • LeBrick James

    True. There's lots of people in the intensive care ward right now who would love to trade places with her.

    Can somebody give me a rundown? I have a headache. Like really.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I don't either. I'm simply stating the facts.

  • I aint the one

    This! Not everybody is hyped to be tied to debt for the rest of their life. Just to say you own something you never truly own (re: taxes). A lot of millenials prefer delaying starting a family so they can travel the world and rack up on once in a lifetime experiences.

  • nucynu25

    Amen! I learned that the hard way. You can't be friends with the people you blog about.

    Interesting. I decided to watch the video. I didn't want to watch a Black woman on tape at her lowest. That's what I thought it as coming based on the write up. I was wrong. Indeed I felt her message. Now I can't make any promises, but I'm hoping this moment, me watching the video, me hearing her message, I'm hoping this can be good for me??

    It is cheaper. Tampa too. I really wanna sail out of Jacksonville (in proximity it is the closest one to us out of all FL locations) but they aint got our school spring break dates I have seen yet. Charleston has them but for some damn reason cruises out of Charleston are beyond astronomical.

    He should have been upfront with her when the scandal first got legs. it wasn't fair for her to be blindsided like that.

    Well to be honest, Sandra, I never read her blog. And I've been lurking here on Sandra Rose over 8 years, eating up the stories and comments lol. But for her not to show u respect is backward hustlin. It is all about linking

  • Taj B.

    dont get it? How are you travelling & claiming broke?

  • Jessy

    People do want inspiration. I think the new site just hasn't been something I automatically go to daily YET tho.

    Typically, I'll see her FB posts and then click thru. With the old site it was something I checked multiple times a day. Then, she left and I was so sad because I always loved the positivity that shined thru even with her doing celebrity gossip. I think she should've had the new site ready to launch the day she gave her goodbye. That way she wouldn't have lost any of her daily traffic in translation. I know there are others like myself that were still going to the site after she "closed" it strictly out of habit but once we got used to it being gone... Or she could've launched the new site while the other was still going to give it time to grow.

    Water under the bridge now tho. I hope the new site continues to grow and become a huge success. She has already had so many great articles on the site. Nothing but up from here! ?

  • Diva_woman

    I think she should've kept her blog and just sprinkled good posts in between the negative ones. Idk, bad decision on her part. I loved her site personally.

    Shuttering means to shut down.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I dont understand why she couldn't do both...if you know something is bringing in revenue why would she stop it. Her old site wasn't bad at all or petty. It wasn't bias and had inspirational posts as well. I understand the moral culpability but damn you gonna stop the money??? I would have just hired a team for the other inspirational site and kept the cash flowing on the first one.

    Well Ms. Sandra you must expand your brand. Karen Civil is an author, a philanthropist, probably into fashion, she has her hands in many things. And with the IRS, seek a payment plan. Good luck, you deserve it. Many, Many people love your blog.

    Your priorities are NOT hers ...simple

    In summation she working on it and guess what...It's typically hard for one to admit they were faking the funk. That's why I tell my story, it may help someone...
    Incog-knee-gress - I got mad respect for you, you aired some things that I was like why she say that, but in the end I know you helped someone. It's all just a journey.

    Maybe she feels like she's outgrown NB mentally and spiritually. Yes, it could bring her revenue. But what's the point of doing something you mentally aren't tied to anymore? Just for the money? All that glitters ain't gold and all the gold ain't reality.

Hopefully she can find a way to combine the two.Wishing her the very best moving forward,

    That's the problem with black people. We feel like no one else can do what we do and if they're successful they "stole" something or need to "give due respect". Unless Sandra Rose was THE FIRST black blogger, she owes "respect" and credit to someone else. Nicole was an awesome blogger and should relaunch her page. Period.

    I used to live in NYC, so know how that is. The housing, and other expenses is ridiculous, especially if you want to live in Manhattan or close to it. A friend of mine pays almost $2k for a 1-bedroom in Queens, and I'm in down south paying less than $1k for a 3 bedroom house in a gated community in GA.

    This happened to me in a way. Family member coming up expo weekly asking probing questions about my venture. It's family. I answered until I realized she was asking about branding and labeling and just too much. About 5 months later her daughter in law launched a skin care business using the name of one of my products as the company name ? Only difference is as beautiful as her packaging was it came out of jars unlike mine. Can't find it online now. Wonder about that sometimes.

    I didn't finish the whole video but I commend her or anyone for doing what they feel is THEIR purpose. That being said, a few comments.

    1) I kinda feel like this is a marketing ploy. Which may turn out to be very successful for her. Especially seeing as how she managed to get featured on SR's blog.

    2) You had "top success" for 8 yrs but you managed to go broke three times in a six month period, while launching a blog from your living room. I can't think of a few other lessons she can take away from that experience...seriously.

    3) She had the opportunity to have investors but chose not to, simply because she wanted to do it on her own. But, she already proved that she could do it on her own with her first blog. Had she said she did it because she didn't want to have outside input or influence, I would have understood, but the reason she gave was dumb as hell to me.

    What do you mean by linking? I'm having a slow blond moment. You mean she would add links in her comments to her site?

  • Loyal Lifestyle

    I was thinking the same thing. It's always like that in life though. Two people start off on a path. One is more successful than the other. The one that's less successful harbors resentment against the more successful one and is waiting for their chance to overshadow the more successful one. When the less successful one finally gets a chance, all their true feelings are exposed (jealously and envy) and they give their inspirational ex-friend their new famous ašš to kiss. Never thinking they'll one day fall from grace. But the original successful one (if they're smart) will remain strong (even alone) and preserver. This is why you never dog people out when you finally get a little shine. Just like you saw them on the way up, you'll see them on your way down. Stay humble my friend. This also, teaches the original successful one, who is really their friend. People always expose their true feelings about you, when they think you have no one else or are down and out. Then when your back on top, they try to flip it like it was you who had the problem with them. I can't make this shït called "life" up. It is what it is.

    I gotta say it real. Those many years ago I would lurk on Sandra Rose page I remember her clearly. At that time there were gossip sites and being a blogger was starting to really pop as well as YouTube channels. I don't necessarily think she got the idea from Sandra Rosa but I think she got the formula the format. She was the it girl she had the look, the celebrity connections, the celebrity hookups (cough, Try Songz) lol.
    Honestly her downfall was when she thought she can migrate into the Hollywood scene on a higher level it just didn't happen

    Well Sandra you're story inspired me because without me saying too much..I CAN RELATE. When you inspire someone and they finally get a chance to shine, they should give credit where it's due. I'm glad you stayed strong and never gave up even though many rolled out. That's what's up. Many blessings and continue to keep us entertained. Thank you!!

    What most people don’t know is that Necole built her audience by poaching readers from another top black blogger in 2007.

    She craftily used that blogger’s platform to launch Necolebitchie.com in late 2007.

  • Sayitreal

    I see clearly what she's doing she's created this Channel with this heartfelt intro message to get her old followers buzzing and talking about her and then following her Channel which will eventually equate to Necole Bitchie spin off TV show. She wants the blogs to post this video just as Sandra Rose did. Borderline genius if you ask me. I'm sure if I go to IG today Necole Bitchie is trending.

    Listen.....I almost got fired that day lurking on this site. When taken asked her when was the last time she got paid....I yelped so loudly ???

  • http://Copblock.org Brenden’s Back #BlockDeez?

    I think her spirit was what broke. So called regular people broke and entertainment broke has been established as different things. It's that spirit tho. Regular folk broke can continue to blend. Recognizable folk can not. If this was a story of a Black woman who lossed everything the comments may be different. No lowkey snickering. Then again, we do go hard at each other? I for one don't criticize the fund me accounts. Anyway, yeah.idk. I wish her well??

    That was a dumb move on her part. If that's what she really wanted to do, she would've had both blog running in tandem.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    OMG...with all that drama, what the hell is she dancing and smiling for? Geez she;s so weird and socially awkward. I never thought of her as much of a celebrity gossip blogger because she didn't dish much gossip, and she rarely ever put people on blast. Necole is a kiss-ass and an opportunist. And a narcissist too. Does she think newer, hungrier bloggers were gonna just sit still while she goes through these bizarre life moments?

    Blogging has changed, and so has its impact. Advertisers know that. And so does the industry. And she's been forgotten. Get over it!

    But I was told she'd been trying to make a play at Essence.com but that she wanted to essentially have the same power as the editor over there--and make more money. That's what I was TOLD, don't quote me.

    Necole was never a gossip blogger because she was always focused more on building bridges to nowhere: she thought some of these celebs and check signers were her "friends", but they only fucked with her to further their goals.

    She needs to move on. Her time has passed and her blog is such a snoozefest.

  • Jusstlookn I, II, II

    SHUSH (whispers in your ear) Didn't say it was a bad thing. Back in 08, I lost over 60k...Let me tell I felt like I wanted to jump off a bridge. I had lived my parents for 4 years, making great money bought a brand new condo paid my mortgage for 6 months and just let my most of my income go into my 401k...Then yhittey and his chums on their sails boats, 30 thousand sq feet mansion in Italy and Hamptons. My dumb broke ignant ass living in two brandnew condo thinking I'm the shit.

    But not it crossed my mind again, when I thought about HOW I DROVE FROM CALI TO VA CAUSE MY HUSBAND WAS HABITUAL CHEATER AND BEATER

    THEN IT CROSSED MY MIND WHEN I LOST MY JOB, AND I WAS TOO PROUD TO ASK MY DAD TO HELP ME OUT.

    THEN IT CROSSED MY MIND AGAIN THAT I DATED THIS JEVOAH WITNESS, WHO WAS SO STRANGE. I FELT LIKE HOOKAH, BUT HE HELD IT DOWN.

    YEAH IT CROSSED MY MIND, Hi AND goodbye

    It varies. Most dont make that much, but some can make a lot.
    Some examples:
    https://amylynnandrews.com/how-much-do-real-bloggers-actually-make/

    Coming Up Roses – Erica was making about $1400 at the end of 2015.
    Arts & Classy – At the end of 2015, Meredith was making about $5000 per month.
    Becky & Paula – Becky & Paula each have their own blogs but share their income reports on their joint blog. As of 2015, Paula was making about $5000 per month and Becky $40,000. (They also occasionally share the income reports of other bloggers too.)
    Just a Girl and Her Blog – At the end of 2015, Abby was making about $24,000 per month.
    Pinch of Yum – As of mid-2015, food blogger Lindsay was making around $30,000 per month.
    Smart Passive Income – At the end of 2015, Pat Flynn was making over $100,000 per month.
    Keep Chasing the Stars – I love Monique’s transparency about her “un-income” of -$13,000 in September of 2015.

  • kblack2123

    wow! I never knew all of this, but I can only imagine what it must be like to go from having money and being popular to being broke. Why did she just close the other site? Why not take on a lesser role in her main money maker and let the sight keep running? I think closing the site was a terrible business move on her part. Hopefully she will learn from her mistakes

  • Nanny

    Mase left when he was hot, became a preacher got married and caught with a tyranny. He tried making a come back.

    Whatever, then you wouldn't have posted this story . You're a spiteful woman. It's no surprise you & Michelle Brown are "besties" . NB will be fine, she just needs to work on her brand a bit more. Humble yourself miss rose.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    Nothing wrong with going broke, most millionaires and billionaires have, so they filed bankruptcy, and started over. She will bounce back.

  • SameoleJ

    Ahhhh, there goes that "ray of sunshine"!!

  • 1shy112

    Awww you can't steal people.... it's free will you can visit all your favorite blogs all day, hit all your social media pages and check your many emails you have made. Multiple everything!!!! There is enough room for everyone to make a check. I hope it all starts going well for her again. YouTube will make her a nice lil check monthly tho if she does it right. Thinking of doing a channel myself. You have to forgive and move on. You don't have to be cool as you once was, but I'm sure her lessons were learned. Karma always hits when you have wronged someone.

    After I saw so many "others" go on and get rich!! Millionaire, don't have to work and can run around spread their hate on the dollars of those accounts................I say have at it!! If it helps, Great!!

I don't respect him because he did this WHOLE tour when he got saved stating he was visiting every place he rapped at and spread the word of God. He was apologozing for rapping about evil things before he got saved now he is back to doing what he apologized about. Very hypocritical . Camron said it in Pink coat years ago...

    What is the back story? I heard from an interview with another blogger that you (despite whatever deep differences you two have) have advised and guided them and how instrumental you were to their success.
    Now I won't even lie and may like her blog got more than 5 minutes of my lurking. I just don't understand the fall out and why you were never acknowledged.
    I hate it for her though.

  • Shanayeblanco38

    It can happen to anybody so people shouldn't be so judgemental but I'll be praying for her and sending nothing but positive vibes her way. That's why these bloggers need to be very careful what they are saying about people in these blogs because Karma is a bitch

  • 80sChild

    A lot of what Sandra post is valuable information, her Medical Minutes, and posts about politics, media bias, the self-inflicted decline and destruction of the black family/community, self-esteem, etc. are all important things to post.

    Sandra has dished out some good advice and points that have gone over so many people's heads (based on the comments I read and I read a lot of them), I see why Sandra gets frustrated at times and want to ditch this blog and start another one with a different audience. Shoot, I experience the same frustration in my professional life too.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    That is one of the strangest videos ever. Its really a rant and a cry for pity I guess. I have a feeling a Kickstarter campaign is next.

    I'm starting to think Necole is mentally ill. And she really only has herself to blame for her troubles. She overplayed her hand, overestimated her value, believed her own self-created hype, gave away the cooch, and ended up with nothing. Happens every day. And people got bored with her and when her blog vanished, not a lot of people went looking for its replacement.

    Necole's blog has always been tired ya'll just weren't paying attention. And who does she think she's kidding? Nobody was gonna invest in her. For what? She was a flash in the pan with an unremarkable blogging style that relied heavily on ass-kissing interviews with stars who themselves were barely hanging on to their own relevancy. Not exactly a solid foundation for reaching the Fortune 500. And I swear that's the same weave she was wearing back when she first launched that site years ago.

    Necole, honey, please retire. And stay there. And stop doing those videos. You are making a fool out of yourself. Tell auntie's couch I said hello.

  • TheWildChild

    I remember Necole from here. I never latched on to NecoleBitchie but I wished her well. I was very shocked when she shut down her highly successful blog that celebs actually didn't mind being associated with. I figured that it would have been better for her to slowly change the content rather than abandoning it.

    I commend her for wanting to be positive and uplifting to the point of not selling her blog for someone else to spew garbage from. I still wish her well and pray that she will be blessed for her positivity.

    I remember this but I also remember that you didn't open up your blog to new commenters. Even though I didn't always agree with your point of view I thought you had good articles. But your commenters were your fans that praised you all day but never really had anything interesting or profound to say about the articles. Maybe it was free of being banned. Well it got stale and boring. Some of my favorite blogs are because the comment sections are on fire. LOL. I've learned some interesting things just from reading a different point of view.

    Through Necole B. I was introduced to Sandra Rose 7 years ago. I loved Necoles blog but I'm happy she decided to take a risk. I took one earlier this year when I went back to school. Life is about risk. You never know your potential if you don't aim for it.

  • HOLLYHOOD

    Damn!! Sandra the great hater.. Kick a lady while she down...wow.
    You used to be a nicer person years ago. Yeah its me ...I'm back

  • HOLLYHOOD

    Wow are yall reading this... Hater #1 dizzamm...
    People choose her content over yours and you got upset instead of better at what you do...

  • Breezysmom

    Whatever happened to the blogger Angel Laws Sandra? She had a popular blog back in the day and fell off a cliff.

  • KB

    I remember her old blog & the riff between these two. I also remember her "farewell" speech and thought to myself "good luck but you'll be back." I was following her new blog on Twitter and stopped when I realized I was posting about ? before her. Matter a fact I think she was using the same foundation to start that blog as she did the older one.......not giving credit. IMO

  • Queen B

    Exactly!!! I was just about to post that. Like bih, y didnt u just keep ur gossip site and add a link that will redirect readers to ur inspirational site...wit cho dumbass!!!

  • Queen B

    Lol hey can u reply with a pic of your avi? I want to send it to my bf lol he likes those type of animal pics ?

  • Queen B

    Oh I remember that u were asking for donations and all!! I think i gave about 20 lol i need to borrow that bk to jk

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    I use to love necolebitchie.com and then it went sour. Her website now is ok but what I dont like about necole is that she erases comments so much. I dont even mess with her new site. I feel like if you are positive and post something different she erases it.

  • Queen B

    Necole was too busy trying to kiss these celebrities on their ass she forgot the need/wants of her audience we want to read gossip and ratchetness....we can go to church for the motivation. Her dumbass cudve obviously continued to run the gossip site and added the inspirational site as a a sister/sub website smh what is this bih IQ bc it doesn't make sense

  • barbeez

    Yeah. I went to check out her new blog which was geared towards young women. I suggested that she diversify her audience and she politely declined saying she wanted to focus on issues that effect young females. Oh well. If she wanted to do another blog, I would have kept my money maker going. She truly made a piss poor business decision. Sometimes you have to ignore your "morals" and go for the money. She mostly did positive stories anyway.

  • Runner

    This does not make sense...on so many levels. She didn't know how to grow her brand and rebrand... However I've been reading this blog since 2007/8 I think - When did this blog start? I only started to comment when Sandra when on the new commenting system...

  • Runner

    Exactly

  • takenaback

    Oh my goodness. I was just thinking about Nicole I was getting ready to look her up on the internet. When she closed her site I thought she had gotten a job with mainstream media. Then I came on here and Sandra had this. Wow. Good luck to her and continued success to you Sandra.

  • Tiffany Miller

    When you lose your parents, things in life seem surreal. You end up making poor decisions out of grief thinking you can take risks. While taking risks can often lead to success,at some point you should learn how to make moves without LETTING GO OF EVERYTHING all the time. That should NOT be how you move in every facet of your life. If everytime you make a decision and leave everything behind, you have some personal demons that you need to address. And if you do want to live your life in that way, then don't complain about the times you end up on your bottom.

    When the commenters use to beef, it was epic. I remember some chick name Chiby or something they use to read her for filth.

  • PussyGal0re

    So that's what the beef was about! Thank you for your candor and honesty.

  • Ms. Jackson

    I been on lurk mode since 06.( I think that was the year. But the site was brand new) . I actually just started commenting recently. I remember when all the NB ish went down. I never could go to her blog and look around.... But this was and always has been my #1 blog site. To be honest, I pull up this site everyday, several times a day. . I'm nosey as hell. . ??

  • bella28498 .

    She's an idiot. Ppl love when news is sensationalized and not inspirational.

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    She got sued so many times. @realsandrarose:disqus did try to warn her many times but Necole wouldn`t listen. I hope she will listen more to her mentors (if she has one) but the way she speaks it seems she just wants to do her.... just like on her first blog, which is cool but now it will be a youtube blog about her only... like the youtubers do already (like moiiiiii )

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    I JUST WROTE THIS ABOUT YOU...
    see how I know you (we are friends in my head lol)

    yup

  • Stan4NoOne

    She CLEARLY did not pass Business 101.

  • anjanette b

    That's not true Sandra, when she was shutting down her site I saw where she said u were the number one person that helped her set her site up and basically told her everything to do. Anyway that was nice of u to post this so people would find out about her new adventure and tune in if they so choose. I guess she u owes u again..

  • bemetoo

    Yes I remember it was necole and that other blog "mediaoutrage" aunt Sandy use to help them both

  • bemetoo

    I never left and I been checking yo blog since 2000.. I just never made an account and when I did try you weren't accepting lol..but I'm still here checking and now posting

  • kekeb

    This isn't funny. This is the part of tue story where you gotta hold on real tight to that dream. It'll be worth it later on. Keep pushing baby girl

  • Emily post

    Her new blog doesnt seem authentic... Articles celebrating low brow reality chicks come on.... She has a good photographer taking pictures but those stories... whew...

  • Emily post

    Its nothing wrong with having a inspirational blog but it seemed soo fake. Some of the women that were suppose to be inspirational were anything but.... One main problem is that some people are so competitive with one another and they are copycats because they dont have their own identity. I remember when bloggers were very supportive of one another and original. Sandra Rose is one of the few blogs that still list links to other blogs which is nice. The comments on the blog is not stopped by a mediator or what I call a comment controller on others you cant write anything the mediator does not agree with or they will not allow you to post.

  • Joanna

    I used to read her blogg and she was quite successful. TBH everyone in the blogging industry is biting off someone else plate so to call out her solely isn't right. Some of her commentators may have been drawn to her blog via yours but I don't think its right to celebrate her downfall. You never really know what its like to win until you have lost at something. Her honesty about her situation is actually inspiring as she didn't have to be transparent as she was. I hope each of us black woman will begin to pull each other up at some point.

  • rayne215

    That they bf? Something like that

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    Why didn't she just do both?

    Makes me think of Kanye's "All Falls Down".

    Hope she gets it together, but if it was ill gained it will be lost

  • benoriginal

    Agreed.

  • barbeez

    She's hoping to make it big on YouTube. YouTube is ruthless. The big Youtubers are gamers, comics and beauty bloggers. She's none of these. I'm a big YouTube fan and I don't see anything attractive about her channel. She's planning to upload twice a month. What! The money makers upload three times a week. Some of them several times a day. She should have kept her blog and started a YouTube channel. She's pretty but not very smart.

  • barbeez

    She's gotta learn to make better decisions. Where is all of this traveling money coming from? Could that be invested in her blog?

  • barbeez

    Her new blog targets a small audience...Young black women. There's nothing for older women or men. She bet on a small demographic that would rather hear the latest gossip on Jay Z and Bey than how to grow a garden on your patio.

  • BayArea Sag1212

    It was still NICE of YOU Sandra to post this POST :) I know ya'll history.

  • Ericka Shonta Williams

    Things happen, gotta have passive income coming in. That blog was rolling for 8 years should of had some other investments or another business as she closed the blog. All these financial advisors out here. Shit just a small simple house somewhere would have worked..crazy.

  • Adanna

    She actually did not allow you to comment on her blog?

  • facingrealit1

    I and many others could never comment because Sandra blocked registration for commenting but to her chosen few. There would have been a whole lot more visitors to her site had she not chosen to do that because people were on other blog sites talking very badly about her. NB on the other hand would let you comment but as she got more successful she'd block comments she didn't like through moderation. The issue with us black folks is that we don't know how to agree to disagree. I don't have to agree with you to respect your point of view. Real Talk!

  • facingrealit1

    You are so correct! She would not allow you to register to comment and if she did let you comment would block you if she didn't agree with you!

  • Tea??

    Necole quit her blog because she wanted to be a celebrity herself and got too close with some of the celebrities she spilled the tea on so it became a conflict of interest. I feel like the site could've still prospered but she chose to let it go. I tried to support her newest blog but got bored ?

  • Ke

    Excellent point. People think failure is temporary when it's NOT. Sometimes it's the beginning of something new and this is what happens when you go into business for yourself. I can't speak on her character because I don't follow her, but these trials can happen to anyone. I'll never celebrate someone's failure.

  • Ke

    ALL OF THIS!!!

  • Ke

    Tell her to create her own blog! And lol hey nothing wrong with beaded jewelry and flavored popcorn. She could make big bucks on that

  • Kato Hammond

    THANK YOU!!!

  • Kenya Nicole Monique Rittenbur

    bless her .... read my blapters/and blogs about my life on http://www.quickfame.wordpress.org

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    poor her. Yeah, women go church on Sunday to be inspired. M-F, they want gossip, a get away from reality. This is an example of her friends not being friends. She walked away from a brand, not a blog. Your fault and not wise. If anything, hire ghostwriters and such to keep NB going while you branch off to add to your brand, not shut it down.

    I bet someone gassed her up to get her out the way so their blog can breathe and finally get more life.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Agree. You have to start downsizing when you're convinced to take this type leap and test your livelihood. Small condo/house, pay off your car, $0 balance on your 2 emergency cards and some money in savings. Now you can venture out and try other things with your career.

    U only fail if you don't get up to try again.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    yep, not sure what business classes she took in college, but you expand your brand, not shut it down.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I just posted not knowing what business classes she took, but she didn't do too well.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    a mess. this fool was paying atlien $1495 a month for RENT? Dude, ur dumb.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    HA. Sandra was the "it" photographer for so many hot events in Atlanta and people, including me, would come to her site to see the pics of the hot events attended by the who's who. This was long before reality TV bs took over. She then transitioned into blog world a couple years later.

    Sandra, because so many celebrities had you come to their events, even to their homes, I would jokingly say to you along the years 'you aint tell me such/such was selling their house.' HA. I still remember the photos from Q Parker's party for his son and when you posted at home with Wanda Lopes-Colemon (Lefteye's mom). LE had that house hooked up. Such a modest home in Stone Mountain, but very nicely decorated.

  • Soon2BWife

    What hating envious person talked her out of her lucrative career? You don't leave a sure thing to launch an unknown. Keep that sure thing while you get the unknown popping.

  • ThatBlkBoy

    1. She could have rebranded NB.com and kept that traffic popping while developing her other brand. She wanted to take the moral high ground and shame all the people who were still into gossip though and we see how that worked out. 2. XONecole's concept was fine, but the content was trash. She's never really been a writer, so when you go from non-writer to trying to do serious editorials, the people who like that stuff won't be fooled. She just gon' have to get a job like everyone else for a minute. She'll be fine.

  • ThatBlkBoy

    THIS. I launched a small business, and we just celebrated our first full year in biz this week. It took me six years to launch because I bootstrapped everything, and I STILL have a day job, and 2 roommates to keep this NYC overhead in check. You have to constantly be strategizing how to keep your brand afloat.

  • Sexymoney

    Yes she should I read her blog daily.

  • Sexymoney

    Agreed

  • graygreypinkbrown

    I know Necole is a virgo, but as a someone born in September like her, I doubt if i could and would be able to record this clip unless i was high as a kite & she seemed to be sober to me-I mean like thats taking PRACTICAL on a different level & dimension-which I must say good for her spilling the beans before anybody close or around her circle had the chance to
    that Checkmate move or Chess was well played koz word would have got out SOONER from other blogs about this ...!???? i think,

  • Taneesha Culture Clash Thomas

    I never understood why she walked away from her brand...she could've just revamped her original set up if she wanted to try something different

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I'm going to write a post about what really happened to Necole, Concrete Loop, Freshalina, and other greedy bloggers.

  • Iraizehell

    I wouldn't call out lacking financial education. Trump filed bankruptcy 3 times. Anyone can go broke.

  • Iraizehell

    Preach

  • Desalyn Jones

    It is not really the same type. There is a difference between a gossip blog and a inspirational one. I do think that she should have just included more inspirational stories as well.

  • Desalyn Jones

    On the positive side:
    1. She is still Necole Bitchie
    2. She still has her contacts
    3. She knows how to achieve success
    Bottom Line: Therefore she will do it again! So I can't wait to hear what her haters has to say once that happens.

  • Desalyn Jones

    Right! Nicole is smarter than some want to give her credit for! Nicole did a "Reintroduce myself video" but first spilled her own TEA which made ALL of the other blogs give her FREE exposure on her new venture! She is a freaking genius, of course in my opinion.

    This was such a true revelation on how vicious and cut throat the business of blogging can be. Stay grounded and don't get caught up in the hype and one will always do well. Thanks for sharing.

  • Kjibbers

    Did you ever write that post Sandra?

  • Guest©

    As a fellow September baby, I concur. I wish Nicole the best. I did visit her blogo and it was tame compared to others.

  • This is Correct.

    I think you are right. She should have kept her first website (I never knew about either website, but others did!) just in case the second website did not go well. She has tenacity. She has what it takes. Necole (I just learned about you today), you have what it takes.

  • This is Correct.

    WRONG. Never ignore your morals for money. That's GREED, and greed leads to a host of corruption and countless issues of abuse. ALWAYS keep your morals, and the money will come.

  • This is Correct.

    I learned about Necole today when I watched her interview Jennifer Hudson. I wanted to know how educated she was because I am into higher education. Then I watched the video here. However, she has come up since then. Now watch her xo Necole YouTube channel. She has IT. She will do well. Today, I subscribed to her YouTube channel.

  • MadAlex2131

    I'm not gonna lie I use to go to necolebitchie daily, it was a ritual, then she changed it to the new one and I just can't get into it like that.
