Popular black entertainment blog Necole Bitchie shuts down

MOVING ON: Blogger Necole Bitchie

AFTER SEVEN years of delivering black celebrity gossip, popular entertainment blogger Necole Bitchie has made her final post.

In a lengthy letter titled, It’s Time For Me To Move On, the site’s founder announced that she will be shutting down the site.

Although she has been a prominent fixture on the gossip circuit for some time now, Necole expressed that she has been feeling unfulfilled and desires to embark upon a more meaningful path, reported Madame Noire.

"This is probably the most difficult thing I’ve ever had to do, and I will cry after I write this. I’m am very saddened to announce that today is my last day as a ‘celebrity gossip blogger.’ It’s also my last day running the site as you know it, NecoleBitchie.com."

After sharing her remarkable story of determination and success, Necole revealed where her true passion lies.

"Despite all of those things, I continued to notice that I was experiencing more fulfillment and success from women coming to me on the street and saying, ‘Your story inspires me so much!!’ than I did the, ‘You got all the tea, I love your celebrity blog!!!’ I was getting more fulfillment out of speaking engagements, panels and inspirational interviews than I was flying to a luxurious location, given freebies and standing next to someone famous.

"I began measuring my success not by the amount of people who read my blog, or the money I made, but by the number of people I was able to touch, motivate and inspire."

"I also started to realise what purpose was – and I knew to be happy, I had to start living a purpose-driven life. I had to start thinking about what I wanted my legacy to be, and what steps I’d have to take to start living in it.

"I think about how I want to be remembered all the time, and one thing I know for sure is that I never wanted to be known for being JUST ‘a celebrity gossip blogger."

She concluded: "Although it is the end of Necole Bitchie – it’s not the end of my life journey. I’ve only scratched the surface of my true potential.

"As I transition into my next chapter over the next few months and hopefully launch something new and positive, I can only hope for your continued support.

"It’s not a ‘good bye!’ per say. It’s a ‘See you soon!’"
