Funky Dineva, Michelle ATLIEN

Michelle, ATLIEN of StraightfromtheA.com, took to Youtube on Wednesday to educate her followers about professional blogging, after struggle blogger Funky Dineva declared blogging is dead.

Michelle discussed why some bloggers are successful and why some people choose to work for others rather than for themselves.

Dineva, who was unceremoniously fired from the Sister Circle daytime talk show, claimed blogging was dead after he failed to monetize his own blog, funkydineva.com.

Michelle also discussed popular Instagram bloggers who have millions of 'likes' but no traffic to their own blogs, which makes it difficult for them to monetize their platform.

“if you’re dependent upon Instagram to pay your rent, tomorrow it may be gone,” she said.

  • Trace da Ace

    well...dang....I used to actually go to Dineva's blog page for a minute...but then the posts because far and few....until the page was down....but I thought his blog was tee-hee...but I always go to ATlien page (straight from the A) to get the Atlanta news....but I wish she would post more frequently....cause I really like her blog....but it is what it is....

  • Luv Pitties

    She is still obsessed with this dude?? Ok he was a horrible tenant, Michelle evicted him. After a long period of time she finally got paid moniesshe sued him for. I would think the case would be closed by now but the only reason she can give for continually discussing him is “I talk about it because I can .” Personally I wouldn’t want anything to do with him he’d be dead to me at this point.

    Sandra your blog survives (because) you speak (your) truth ..... even though the trends are there for you to get info from .... you don't hold back your opinion and Regardless of the backlash ..... Is it right always right ? Well (my) opinion Naw !!!!!! But because it's your honesty and your intention I honor that ....... most bloggers roll with the clique type (followers) just saying .... if you follow a group a mindset (lack expansion) You the blogger allow dependency (didn't your write about that down yonder downstairs?) no shade ..... but much love .......Stick to ya Craft ..... and that's you!!!! That's why this bog still stands ..... roll with ain't shyts get drug like da ain't shyts IJS!!!!!! Stay original .... All this shyt is messy and not a damn competition .... Stand in your space Sandra and own that Btych !!!!! but this cat fighting passively can miss me ... and Sandra I'm taking care .... much care and much love ....

  • Chuck

    Sandra Rose lies a lot!

  • Luv Pitties

    Not anymore he stopped along with the makeup.

  • Pitty Patty

    Well I saw his video about it and this aint what he said...but whatever

  • Luv Pitties

    Exactly.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I dont have an hour for Michelle. Sorry not sorry. Opened it and it said 54 minutes.

  • Kanyade

    When he co-hosts on the Queen's Court youtube thingy, he dresses up with makeup and wig.

  • Pitty Patty

    Now he didnt. He still wears his wigs and he still does the TS Madison's show from time to time where he is in full make up an wigs

  • Trace da Ace

    yeah me neither....attention span ain't what it used to be...especially for rambling....sooo.....lol

  • Kanyade

    I'm listening now. I'm interested in what she's saying as she is one of the few bloggers still left from days of old, along with Sandra Rose, of course :)

  • Kanyade

    jinx LOL said that, too.

  • Pitty Patty

    most bloggers roll with the clique type (followers) just saying

    I watched his video talking abour why he quit blogging and I actually agreed with him. Blogging like SM has evolved where people want to see the tea not just read about it. Hence why Instagram blogs are so popular. I disagree about those Instagram blogs not making money. The more subscribers one has the more companies are willing to pay to advertise. Look at Angelica Nwandu/owner of The Shade Room. Forbes estimated her net worth to be about 23 million in 2018.

  • Pitty Patty

    I agree with why he stopped too. Bloggers used to just make up lies and shyt. Bloggers now have to be held more accountable for the stuff they say. That's why the game has changed. You can't just make up shyt about people anymore...

    I didn't give AF and I was still here ......... got drug myself by several psychopaths . on here ..... yes ..... but we (I'm) still here ...... cut the shyt !!!!!!

I come on here to shoot the shyt in all honesty .... sorry you felt that way ...... but roses look out for roses ..... but if ya nasty ..... etc a e-fight breaks out .... (Been there) .... done that ...... pointless now .... cat fighting .... it be helpful info on Sandra blog .... in some of her write ups and in the comments .....

  • FukkFolks2018

    FAM BAM. Hey how you is?

  • NorthDeKalb

    I read and enjoy both STFA as well as Sandra Rose. They’re the only two blogs that I access daily, and you have to respect both of these ladies hustle. I didn’t know of Sandra’s site until STFA sent me here a couple of years back. There’s a tremendous amount of work that goes into what they do, and I appreciate them both for their contributions. As for Funky Dineva, he’s a bit more of a free spirit who seems to reject weighted responsibly, but he’s very talented at what he does. I think FD has been his own worst enemy in a lot of ways, but he’s sharply intuitive and witty.

    He never said blogging was dead.... he said it wasn’t for him. He said there a lot of grunt work involved, and a lot of distrust between bloggers and celebs/reality stars and trying to rush to put someone on blast before the next blogger just didn’t sit right with him. So he went back to doing YouTube videos because it was faster money, and a quicker process. Also he no long had to be responsible for leaking people info before the next blogger did and have to feel shunned by people because they were worried what Q was going to put in his blog

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    Has she ever addressed the fact she looks like Gary's TWIN?I'm dying to know what her response was/is? If you know, do tell please...lol

  • Judge Mental Will

    She is trash! She sat up with khia saying negative things about gay people when in fact dineva used to be her best friend. Now all of a sudden all gay people bad because you fell off with one? Dineva career is doing better than hers. Yes people dont do her website no more. SHE CAN JUMP OFF A BRIDGE WITH CEMENT BOOTS AND I WILL NOT MOURN!

  • Yoni7

  • Logan Roberts

    This McDouble neck lady always bothering this boy. I told her last time to go mentor some kids, get a hobby, volunteer at a church or hospital or go get some good old fashioned dyck. Thanks management.

  • Rhondalousey

    Im sorry but, what does her look have to do with her explaining anything? I swear, human are the worst.

  • Faux Gibbler

    Why does she stay keeping his name in her mouth? She has his videos taken down of him speaking about her.

  • Faux Gibbler

    Agree. She is mad because she expected everyone to hate him after she aired their dirty laundry. And Auntie Sandra is being used. She will see it one day.

  • Faux Gibbler

    Go type Fish Factory on her blog comments. LOL ?

  • TooMuchTea

    ROFL!!!! Not cement boots!

  • Faux Gibbler

    Y’all google Michelle Brown straightfromthea I can’t. This weight loss stuff comes up

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    First of all this is not done in mean spiritedness , so zip it. She is a public figure trying to drop knowledge and she needs a makeover . First impressions are everything and you are judged before you even open your mouth. There are several affordable lace fronts that are more stylish than that and she can get an out fit from Torrid, Lane Bryant, or the Avenue that would look 100 % better than what she has on. Then she needs to stop with her goggling.... maybe somebody would take her serious.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Back to my regularly scheduled program! I come here to have a little fun . I have a chronic illness and I don’t have time to fool with you! Thanks Rose Garden for bringing me joy!!!

  • FlorenceJohnston

    Mr. Drummond please come get Arnold and tell him to STFU!

  • Leary (Alearya)

    Ugh I can smell that ? ? from here. Like Girrrrr.. Kill it... She is pressure cooker pressed. She is still bothered over the Dineva beef and I just found a new reason to finally unfollow her. You sound mad lonely ass bad built bitter blog lady. Pepe' la Puss

  • Jennifer Hudson’s Knees

    He did but of course she flagged the video and got it removed. Said she left Rico Chapelle’s ottoman smelling like sushi. Rico has a video saying he threw it out.

  • Arii

    Is this a biological man or woman?

  • garrisonville

    He already dragged her ass to the gates of hell before. She must not have been humiliated enough. She needs to get her a man, some kids or something to keep her occupied.

  • garrisonville

    Yep! The number's speak for themselves. She can say what she wants. with her lil dried up blog. hell she ought to be shutting hers down.

  • garrisonville

    this chic is OBSESSED with Dineva. maybe you can talk her into getting some counseling Sandra? I don't know what he ever did to her. maybe when he ended their friendship. but she's messed up in the head bad.

  • Mrs. S. O.

    Auntie, both you and Michelle need to go on somewhere. Dineva created a video where he stated he wasn't making any money so he stuck with YouTube. It wasn't that serious nor did he state that blogging was dead. He said it wasn't for him.

  • Rashe

    Not smelling like a nasty dish rag...they way she always got her nose were it doesn't belong. She's a hater I stopped reading her blog years ago....

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    All good here! It's a Tuesday and I'm still trying to recover from weekend GHOE shenanigans that I know my ass was waaaaay too old to participating in. How are you and yours?

  • Ghettogirlpj
