Today’s post is at least 3 months overdue – sorry! I’ve been having some technical issues with iMovie that’s causing delays on my Vlogs so stay posted as there’s a lot to come!
This vlog is a little disjointed as you’re seeing what was meant to be part of an ongoing series about shenanigans to get into in Arizona because I was living there & attempting to get into shenanigans – followed immediately by footage of me moving back home.
If you’re confused about when I lived in Arizona, don’t worry – you’re not alone! I was going to film a big announcement & create several videos discussing the move, however, circumstances changed quickly & creating an ongoing series seemed pointless.
Long story short, I moved to Arizona in December 2015 for a new job in an attempt to expand my Resume, broaden my horizons by living in a new state, & live closer to several friends/family members, including my godchildren. Unfortunately, my grandma was diagnosed with cancer very shortly after that & I moved back to NorCal in July 2016 to help my family & spend time with her.

This announcement comes along with some changes for my blog & a plea for help.
Please keep reading to see what’s going on…
I really enjoy writing/Blogging, however, I consistently receive feedback that people don’t have the time &/or attention span to read my posts, so they don’t Follow at all. I have attempted to write shorter posts to appeal to more Readers, but I feel like I’m not able to say everything I want & can’t give the best information. I briefly considered shutting my blog down as I was…annoyed with this feedback. I have to be true to myself & the content I want to produce, yet at the same time, I have to appeal to Readers or there’s no point. Rather than give up, I have decided to attempt to adapt by utilizing other forms of Social Media & self promotion in an attempt to gain a larger fan base. A larger fan base means more Readers means more feedback, means I can produce more content.
What does this mean for you?
– You’re going to see a lot more of me. It may feel like Spam at first because I’m going to be pushing ALL my posts out on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SnapChat, etc. For example, previously I have not promoted my Book or Movie Reviews – that is going to change. Anything that gets put on this blog is going to be fully promoted on all available platforms. #SorryNotSorry
– I will be constantly asking you to please Subscribe/Follow/Share/Comment, etc. I used to avoid harping on that because I felt that it was somewhat obnoxious, but I really want to grow my Fan Base & it’s going to be impossible if y’all don’t get involved & help me create a community.
– I may make everything more personal. I have tried to keep this mostly business professional because I include my blog on my Resume. However, in an attempt to create more content & change things up, I may start including some “Free Writes/Free Thought” posts & videos where I take a quote or song lyrics & write about it, or sit down & talk about life. This will in no way become “adult” or “graphic” as that’s not my nature & I know my family reads/watches my material.
The bottom line: I’m not even asking you to READ/WATCH every single post/video. I understand not all topics will interest you, but any help you can provide in Following/Sharing, would mean so much to me! Thank you for all your support! I look forward to many new Followers, Subscribers, Comments, & Likes here, on my YouTube channel, & on my Social Media! Remember, all links to get in contact with me are listed in the Contact page at the top of the Blog. Please leave me a Comment if you have any thoughts, questions, or concerns about this new era of Miss Al-Leigh!
Hey y’all! On Saturday, August 29th my Gemini spirit sister Katie & I went to see Luke Bryan’s “Kick the Dust Up” Tour at Levi’s Stadium. We had an amaziiiiinnnggg time – so much fun! Watch the video below for some clips of the concert & some commentary from me. We weren’t down in the pit so the video clips aren’t amazing, forgive the quality and distance, but it’ll give you some idea of what the stage looked like & all that jazz. Most of the clips aren’t long because they’re from my SnapChat (@missal_leigh). Sometimes it’s hard to run my social media, take pics/video for the blog, & also actually be in the moment, but those are the struggles of a blogger I guess. Also, please excuse my awful singing! I tried to cut out video where you can hear me but sometimes my voice got in there sooooo enjoy!!
I didn’t mention this in the video but if you’re going to an event at Levi’s Stadium – be warned! Parking is a complete and utter NIGHTMARE!!!!! We got dropped off thinking that would be the easiest way to move through all the traffic, getting in wasn’t too bad, but leaving – we had to walk a mile, which would’ve been fine except with my hip, I was suffering. The struggle was real.
Let me know in the comments below if you were also at this show and what you thought. I’m going to a Country Music Festival in Vegas that I’m SUPER excited about, what concert are you headed to next? Maybe I’ll see you there 🙂 Thanks for reading!
