After seven long successful years, famed Urban Blogger Necole Kane calls it quits with her popular Celebrity gossip blog necolebitchie.com. Kane made her bitter-sweet announcement to her loyal readers on July 2nd, and stated that she would no longer be running the celebrity gossip site citing, “It’s time to move on.” Necole has inspired women across the “internet world” with her personal “rags to riches” story while developing her high demand brand necolebitchie.com
Necole wrote a lengthy open-letter to her readers thanking them for their loyalty and her staff for their dedication. The Blogger also reflected on her hardships that included losing both of her parents and living couch to couch all while developing her website. Kane also highlighted her success and reminded her readers that sacrifices are necessary in order to move on to the next level in life and fulfill a greater purpose.
“I also started to realize 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.”
Kane also talked about how her brand term “Bitchie” was counter-productive to how she wanted to inspire young women in a positive way.
“The ‘Bitchie’ in the website name was always going to be counterproductive to the mission I had of being a source of inspiration, and launching a platform for women to tell their stories.”
Necole has been an inspiration to many of us including myself. Necole inspired me to start my film site www.theurbanfilmstage.com which was nominated at this past Black Web Blog awards for Best Film site. She also responded to an email I wrote her in 2013 about me feeling discouraged and wanting to give up on everything…including life.
I wish the best to Ms. Kane and I know we will see more of her.
