          Respect is definitely due here. Necole thank you so much for giving us a platform to express our thoughts and bringing some enjoyment to our mornings with fluff that helps make the daily stresses of life a little easier. It was an honor reading your blog I hope you inspire others to post without all of the raunchy salacious negativity technique that is usually used to post celebrity stories. It was refreshing to hear your voice. I’m sure this won’t be the last we hear from you and if it is I’m comfortable knowing that you are doing what you love to do best and take comfort in that good luck in all your endeavors and God Bless.

          Fear is not of God. And God has blessed you thoroughly for you not to fulfill your purpose by living in fear! You are a woman of many things and talents that has inspired a lot of girls and women (even myself) it hurts that you are leaving but I believe that your next venture WILL be bigger and better! All of Gods blessings for you Necole!!!!

          Necole!!! Your site will be missed but I totally get where you’re coming from. I wish you nothing but the best. This site always had the funniest comments. Spread your wings and prepare to fly for you have become a butterfly.

          I am so proud of you Necole for everything you have accomplished! You are truly an inspiration to many of us across this globe that are dealing with this same struggle of ‘moving on to better’.

          I look forward to your next chapter – it will be an amazing one! Best Wishes Always!

          I love you Necole! Thank you for sharing of yourself, of your beautiful soul. It has been an honor knowing you thus far. I do feel like I know you as a person, you express yourself in your writing well. Thank you for the gift I won in one of your contests, I am very grateful to have connected with you. I pray for you, and may God continue to provide many blessings in your life.

          I, too, like many of the readers, found you at a difficult time in my life. I could very much relate to your story, and your site was one of the things I did to “entertain” myself. I read your blogs for many reasons, which brings me to the commentators…Man, I LOVE YOU LADIES (and a few gentlemen), SO MUCH!! On this site I found many educated and self-aware black women that I could relate to (a few brown ladies too), and that many times EDUCATED me; many compassionate god-fearing women who HUMBLED me, also many fun and witty women that were not afraid to speak the truth with so much sassiness, and made me LAUGH HYSTERICALLY at times! I truly do love you Queens & Goddesses, may the Most High (Yahweh, Jehovah, Allah, God, 1Love) bless each and every one of you immensely! My sisters!

          Even when I did not fully agree with many comments, even Necole’s opinions sometimes (lol), or the contributors, I could simply respect it, and move on. We sure did create a lot of dialogue throughout this time, and I’ll go as far as to say, we’ve GROWN together throughout this time. I didn’t always comment, but I did read, and liked comments, which kept me engaged week-to-week. I connected with many of you in spirit, mind and energy. Thank you to all who contributed to making this environment positive, engaging constructively, building rather than tearing down, uplifting rather than degrading; to the ones who defended the truth against the lies, the one’s that stand up for God’s Word and His standards, or just moral principles in general, to all the educators out there that can’t bear to see ignorance and are compelled to teach – keep educating! THANK YOU TO ALL, AND TO GOD FOR THIS JOURNEY WITH ALL OF YOU.

          The funny, odd, ironic? good thing is that I am in the same place you are now as well Necole, I continue to relate to your story. Girl, I am ecstatic you are moving on! I apologize if this comes off as rude, but I do not mean it at all in that way, please believe, at first I was so sad! However, you “moving on” forces me to “move on” as well. Your story and courage inspire me to continue in my journey. I pray God blesses you with what your current and future endeavors. I have been subscribed to XONecole for a while, and I am looking forward to continue to build with you on your site. I am excited for what is to come!

          Peace & Love.

          Necole thank you for everything, from entertaining us with celebrity stories tosharing your inspiring story and staying true to yourself. I wish you all the best in your new journey and I can’t wait to hear all about it!
          I just have one question: why not keep the site alive and let the contributing writers run it instead? They have done a pretty good job capturing the Necole Bitchie spirit and their posts are really good. I just can’t imagine living without my daily dose of Necole Bitchiness 😀

          I hope you read this, Necole. You saved my life. If God was ever trying to say something to me, this is it. In a very obscure way too. Thank you! And Good luck with everything… My his blog is like my NYT before anything when I wake up I hit the “N” and everything magically happens. I’m sad but I’m happy for you. More than everything, it’s affirming that I too need to move on with my life. For the 1st time in 2 weeks I’m smiling instead of crying. Your story has given me the courage to do what I need to.

        16. Selly_ says:

          I’m sad. This website is like our little community, and despite what u think Necole, it’s probably one of the if not THE most positive ‘celebrity gossip’ sites out. I don’t even consider this a ‘gossip site’ anymore 🙁 it’s like going on YouTube and watching ure fave youtuber or checking your favourite fashion bloggers site. But good luck on your future endeavours Necole. It’s gonna be hard not coming here anymore.

          100% support Necole’s decision. At the end of the day, growth is the key to life, success, and happiness. Congrats on moving up another level Necole :).
          Now, does anyone know of any other reputable sites to visit? This was literally the only reputable blog I trusted =( … No alternative blog will compare, but now what?lol.

          So sad (I got the lump in my throat), yet so inspiring at the same time!

          I’m not sure you’re aware at how many you’re inspiring by doing this Necole, but u are.

          Your blog will surely be missed.. But I KNOW we will continue seeing you making power moves in major ways. God Bless You girl! And all that you do.

          .I enjoyed this site, it was “positive” and although it was about celebrity gossip the manner in which the “tea” was spilled was classy and all around different than other sites. Congrats to being strong enough to step into the world of the unknown in search of the next phase in your journey……You’ve been blessed with a talent and the understanding that you must keep climbing to reach your full potential. God speed and your fans will always support you, thank you for your story, your strength, your time, and allowing us to come along on this wonderful journey with you! Good luck pretty lady you will be missed 🙂

          Aww why do I keep coming back on here anticipating a new article? Ive been reading your blog since 09 almost daily. This is where I go for music news, twitter info, viral videos, and of course celebrity gossip. I’m going to truly miss this site and Necole. But seriously why not keep the blog going with contributors? Since I’ve grown with this blog I feel as though, you guys were finally starting to get all the recognition, it saddens me I have to go on bossip or Sandra rose. Super sad face.

        This is the only celebrity blog I visit. I’ve checked it almost every day for the last 7 yrs. It’s hard to believe that, checking this site will no longer be apart of my day. As sad as I am, I know your doing what’s best for you. Something we all have to do to get to the next level. Shout out to the other faithful readers throughout the years, whether we agreed or not I will miss your commentary. Necole, you’ve been one of my major inspirations, I know that you will continue to inspire. I’m really gonna miss this site. ??

          Necole I felt like crying when I read your post. This is probably one of a few trusted and positive blog sure that I visit regularly. The stories were always well written. You’re like a friend in my head. While it’s sad to say goodbye, I totally support your decision and I pray that God continues to bless you on your journey. Continue to inspire women. You definitely inspired me. ?

          Wow you shouldn’t have to explain yourself like you did for growth and evolution but it just goes to show what a class act you are .. You served the tea and eventually became a reliable source for me lol .. I would hope that you use your popularity and platform to further our culture and continue to spread positivity ., because you are a role model and celebrity that we as youth look up to .I am ever inspired by your story and look to you as an example of what I could accomplish and I wish you success but most importantly happiness and favor in your life and career .. But why you have to go Beyoncé on your resignation though .. I kid .. Love you and your work is something you should be extremely proud of ma. But the story shall continue .. #blackgirlsrock

When I tell you that I am so sad that this site will no longer be, you have no idea!!!! I love you Necole like cooked food, lol. I know God has something bigger for you so for that I’m happy for you! You’ve been an inspiration to me to follow my dreams and I will continue to support whatever it is that you do. Be blessed! Lord help me….I’m crying real tears right now. Love you Necole!!!

          Wow Necole!! You have inspired me since the inception of your blog and its saddens me to know that I wont be able to visit your site which is one of the more positive sites on celeb gossip. I truly hope and know you will use your brand as a positive outlet and find comfort that your story is able to touch and inspire so many! I feel like I know ya!!! I have always admires your story. Keep rocking and reppin for the intelligent sistas!

          When Jarret Scott passed the other day, I had a strange feeling about Necole. Not assuming this but it was weird because I thought that I would miss her if she left! Come back stronger and positive and repoint for us!

          Necole I have read your blog for about 4 years or maybe more. I had read your story about how you came to develop this blog and the adversity you faced. It was such an inspiration. However, now reading that you have the courage to end your successful blog and start anew I am even more inspired !! I have always had ideasI that I wanted to try but feared I wouldn’t be successful. Your courage has inspired me. I have visited this post about three times before finally deciding, I’m gonna try. I am going to start an inspirational, bucket list based IG and blog. I posted my first post today on my IG @BucketlistBrit . Thank you. Good luck on your new journey. I’m so excited for you!

          Necole, my friend introduced me to your blog back in ’09/10 when we first began college. Your site has been bookmarked on every laptop I’ve owned since, as soon as I type N..into my search bar my browser automatically fills in necole bitchie , I remember when you first changed your header pictures, lol, I am such a fan of your positivity! This was the first celebrity entertainment blog I followed. I just want to wish you the best of luck in the future, although I’ve never met you personally I can easily tell youre a genuine, kind, giving person, you will downright remain successful!!

        I mean, I get it. We all grow up and move on. But, still, it’s like if the owners if Chik-Fil-A got up one day and said “Making chicken isn’t our passion anymore. We are shutting down all the stores.”

      6. OMG I’m literally in tears right now Necole! I have been a fan of yours from the very beginning, I have come to this site every week for years, and my story parallels yours. I’m currently where you were at the age of 28, except I’m 30! I went to NY to make it this year, and I’m broke, sleeping on someones couch myself trying to get my business off of the ground. I literally gave up this week until I saw this post and your video! I gave up Necole, completely. Just as I was beginning to submit resumes again, I saw this. But you just gave me the inspiration I needed to keep pushing even though my own website visual-collective has zero viewers, zero customers and seemingly no hope. I wish you the best! Please don’t disappear completely because we women need you always in our view to look up to and for inspiration. I hope one day to hear your story in person.

          Hey girl! Do not give up the fight. I am 25 and trying to work up the courage to quit my 9-5 to pursue my dreams like I was suppose to (considering I moved to NY at 19). Hearing that there are others out there battling this is comforting to me, considering how depressed and alone I felt earlier this year. Every day we become braver if we fight, especially fighting self doubt. I’ve visited your website and will be telling my friends to do the same.

          You are blessed sis. I am rooting for you.

          As for Necole, you are and will always be an amazing spirit. Super excited to hear about the rest of your success.

        2. Thank you @BHB I appreciate your support sis! And boy can I relate to the loneliness of trying to make it on your own and doing the unpopular thing…quit your job. It is rough, and I’m praying things work out for us both. Your words mean very much to me…and I’m going to keep pushing! You do the same. Also, don’t be afraid to contact me through the message box of my site. I love meeting new people who have the same dream as me. Good luck sis!

          WE LOVE YOU NECOLE!!!!

          Don’t let the pressure to succeed by a “young”/certain age depress you, that’s counterproductive. Make every day a fresh start, recognise that there will be days but that’s when you need to push on the most (like working out) nothing good comes for free often you need to offer sweat, stress, tears and sleepless nights. P*E*R*S*E*V*E*R*E!

        The end of a dynamic era. Necole I started coming to your blog the year Twitter popped up online and no one really knew what it was. I was following a good 20 ppl including you and Solange lol I found your page via the “celebrity & fashion” category and I was hooked ever since. Reading your blog daily inspired me to start my own blog that I worked hard on for 2 years before I shut it down due to other obligations. Your blog was the first online “celeb gossip” site I frequented and the only site I actually came to for a legit source. I am sad that you are turning your blogging hat in because I hoped that one day I would actually be able to blog for your site, but I am happy that you are following you hearts desires and trying something new. You are definetly an inspiration and I know whatever you do next will be AMAZING!! The fact that I visit your site 10-15 times a day lol Idk where I’ll go to read up on my fav celebs, inspirational stories or to read the crazy funny comments anymore now that youre done. Thanks for all that youve done you will def be going in the digital/online/social media history books and I’ll be glad to say I was an advide reader. Love and light to you and youre new journey.

        This was my go-to blog, there is no other blog site (other than tumblr) that I look at everyday. It has always been necolebitchie.com, whether it was on my phone in the bus, at school, at work (wasn’t a good idea), standing in line at the grocery store or at home just to take my mind of of things. This site has become a part of my daily routine and a pastime (lol!) While this sucks for me as an avid reader of this site, I am extremely proud of you!
        It is difficult for us as humans to stop a habit, job, career path because of fear that we may lose, fear of instability, fear of the unknown world out there and we let that fear consume us to the point that, we miss out on amazing opportunities. The fact that you didn’t let the number of views, likes, friends, hits and all of these other redundant factors get inside your head (like most of us do) and that you are seeing the bigger and better picture of life is what more people (myself included) need to realize and understand. Life is so much more than that, we are so consumed by the vanity that we make it our lives and lose sight of the bigger picture. This is one of the few blog sites where within all of the celebrity BS and all the ratchet behavior, I have seen incredible posts that have inspired me to be a better person, have motivated me look out into the world and that no dream is too big. This blog has put a smile on my face many times, and even through your personal posts, that I love, has taught me that the sky is the limit for anyone who believes, not only these celebrities. You have been an inspiration for me and I’m sure countless others, to go out, find their passion and go after it. You are a true testament of what it means to not only survive but conquer! You truly deserve the world and everything is has to offer and more. I thank you for these incredible bitchie years, where I laughed, cried and found motivation. To You and all of the amazing writers on your team, I wish you all happiness and Blessings in all of your future endeavors and Congratulations on taking on this new chapter of your life!

        Necole! This saddens me… I’ve always secretly felt like we were friends or something lol. I’ve been coming to your site for YEARS. But good luck on your journey! I low-key felt like the site had changed so much from the beginning that I’m not completely shocked by this move. Once I saw you making posts and deleting them, I knew something was going on. But we will all miss you! Peace, blessings, and prosperity to you and all that you do!

        Endless respect for your story. Success, ultimately, cannot be measured by external factors, it can only be measured by our own subjective experience and the fulfillment we achieve from doing what we believe in.

        Too many people feel as though, especially in this society, that there is value in wealth/capital, however the value is in the mind which created the wealth. I sincerely believe those who are succesful in their ventures can lose it all today and they can make it all back tomorrow as the tools which helped one create said wealth can never be taken from this. This is why you will always be fine, no matter what your next venture will be, you will still have everything you had which allowed you to turn this blog into what it is today.

        Bless your hustle don’t ever

        Your story is very inspiring. I can somewhat relate being that am in a position where I can no longer stand my job of 9 years. I feel stagnant and like it no longer serves my purpose. It’s not at all what I’m passionate about. So I decided to start a blog recently and plan to pursue my dream career in the fashion industry as well. Building my brand from the ground up. Reading this gave me the confidence I needed to keep pushing. I wish you the absolute BEST in your future endeavors. I’m sure you will be nothing less than great. Thanks Necole 🙂

        Ughhhhhh Necole my big sister in my head..

        I thank you for allowing us to join you on this wonderful journey.. You have grown so much as a brand. Thank you for the daily gossip, awareness, and inspiration.
        I stumbled upon you five years ago and I haven’t looked back yet. I put soo many friend onto you. “Did you see whats on Necole Bitchie?” I remembered when you see mentioned on “Single Ladies” and you would’ve thought it was my website the way my excitement was set up.
        You leave us young Black ladies, girl, students, and future entrepreneur soo inspired and amazed at your progress. As a lost journalism student you in nyc , you have made your pavement.
        You remained humble and dedication even through the critics and sel-doubt. Thank you ..
        You will be missed but I will continue to visit to support your creation.

      So sad to hear this. But, at the same time I am ecstatic for any future endeavors you’ll be embarking on. I will be follow you and know I will see great things. HE will do it for you. Your story inspires and will inspire so many. Especially me. I’m in a job I’m not happy with while I finish up going to school. Reading your story makes me see that I don’t have to be in a career just to pay bills, live paycheck to paycheck or splurge “when I can”. Life is so short. We have to live each day wholeheartedly. Man, you’ve opened my eyes today. Like I said, I am sad to see NecoleBitchie.com go, however I’m excited to see the future projects for Necole!! Good luck and continued success.

      You should be proud of what you have accomplish for yourself. As an individual, you have grown so much that you are ready for your next chapter.

      I do wish you all the best and continue sending positive blessings wherever you go.

      You know, I was just thinking the tone in the blog seemed different…the posts, the frequency, spelling, etc, which tells of someone trying to move on but trying to follow through on something they are not committed to in the same way any longer.

      I am happy you are moving forward and chasing your dreams! Look, from a business perspective I urge you not to shut down your site. You can still have this as passive income and pass it on. I would love to assist you and/or take this off your hands…just send me an email and I’ll share how!!! Your legacy should remain visible!

      This is forcing me to change as well. I came on here every day. Didn’t always comment but read comments always. I found myself being negative, vulgar, not always respecting differences in opinion. I’m moving on from gossip blogs because I don’t like how I was being on them. This site was my go to outlet. Took a lot of my time so now I can pick up a book. Gossip is addicting and now I’m going to rehab. Lol.

      Take care girly and be blessed!

I must say tho that this literally breaks my heart this site is not my go to ..to hear news first but its my absolute go to just to hear your spin on all stories ….out of all the sites I go pass your the only place I feel comfortable enough to comment .. Most of these outlets are filled with racism.. Or absolute ignorance from our people ..so this has been home to me its going to be so hard to re register my brain to all of this your site is literally apart of my life everyday all day I can literally read a story somewhere else but can’t wait for you to post it right here! . I work in the industry so you have been my source of relaxation scrolling through your blog as I fight my way producing TV .. I wish you all all the best and I’m so happy for you

        Good luck with everything. I found this site thanks to Tiffany Evans (I think her name is ) when she ranted against the industry, and you were bold enough to post it. I came and never left. You will be missed though I’m sure you will be fine. Hey the good thing is, if things don’t work out, even if they do you can always pick the laptop back up and carry on business as usual. We will flock right back as if you never left. Anywho I shall miss challenging and annoying your readers with my bold comments. They ( commenters) were always so immature in thought, so positive, so accepting of everything and everybody…I knew I wanted to stand out like a sore thumb, but I was also very inspired by you and them to be a better blog personality something still instilled in me today. I still sting but I can say thanks to the examples you set….I have found that balance. Thanks, good luck & God bless and yes ” Kstill1st”

      I have a problem with this for 2 reasons.

      #1 yes your hard work paid off but the only reason why your blog got popping was because of JD and the Ocean Boys. Trey Songz and them. Because you posted some fake gossip and he responded, yet there is no mention of him in your last post.

      #2 that Harvard Business Review article was written on the 25th of June in this year! Hey I’m glad you took some time and digested what you read before making this big decision lol I was expecting an article from at least a year ago.

      #3 good luck on your next step in life in all sincerity I hope you succeed, but I wish that you would keep it 100 on why you are sudden,y stepping down. I’m good at reading between the lines and something is missing.

Though I don’t know you personally, I can tell your a nice, genuine person. In my real life those are the people I tend to gravitate towards because that’s the type of person I am.

      Necole,
      It takes tremendous courage to truly follow your passions and convictions. Most people don’t have it and don’t do it. Whatever your next phase in life is—you’re ALREADY successful–because you took the steps towards evolving. The rest is already done.
      Simply understanding we all owe it to ourselves, our loved ones and to HIM to become beneficial presences on this planet means you are bound to have many other phases and transitions in this life.
      Don’t be afraid.
      There’s no looking back. Only running forward.
      Wishing you continued growth, strength and happiness on your journey.

    57. So let me get this straight, you gon let what people say about your brand make you quit your website. I just happen to be coming over here to try and get some music of mine promoted and you basically quit. If you quit this you need one of your friends to kick you in your ass. You built a big brand, an outlet for people like me and now you think it’s time for a new chapter. It may be time for a new chapter but you don’t quit. You sell or get other people to run it. That’s what business people do. You are an inspiration to young women, they are inspired but if this site is not passed down to someone in your family after you die. You did all this shit for nothing. I never got a chance to meet you but clearly, you’re not thinking. God doesn’t build and bless for you to throw it away because you’re tired or want something new. You need to keep this site and find some passionate people to run it. Every-time black people build something great, they start thinking it ain’t good enough unless a big corporation come along and buy it from it. You don’t need anyone to validate you. Look at all you have accomplished, now you want to throw that away because you feel some type of way after reading some stuff other people said. Pick your heart up, get your mind right and reclaim your legacy. If you make the wrong decision to leave your own brand, you will never see the mistake you made until it’s too late.

      Aw Necole its literally a habit for me to type in your website everyday for the latest news, and each time the page loads and I see your farewell msg my heart breaks! Is it selfish that I wanted your site to run for like.. ever? I wish you the best and respect the fact that you decided to end your journey instead of have someone follow up with news as “Necole”. I love your site and always enjoyed the comments (best comment section everrr!) Especially your personal feedback, your intake never went unnoticed.
      Best of luck Necole on future endeavours. Hope to hear from you soon !

      I found this blog at a difficult time in my life. Yes, I found this blog. I found this blog to be charming, somehow making itself at home within my tightly screwed daily routine. I found this blog to be a good girlfriend with funny one-liners that crack you up at the most inappropriate times. I found this blog to be an echo and conscious of my sentiments and convictions. I found this blog to be a table, hosting enlightening conversation and challenging debate. I found this blog, but perhaps this “celebrity news” blog may just help me find…myself. Necole, I’m in grad in school, but all that my soul knows is the arts. I’ve tried to convince it otherwise. Desperately so. I feel terribly ungrateful and afraid to pursue it when I’ve been blessed with an opportunity at an education and a potentially stable career in academia. I truly applaud your courage, in starting this blog from nothing and being able to walk way at the height of success. I think I know what I have to do. Today, I found this blog to be a landmark of bravery. Necole Kane, thank you for everything. Love, Lisa Michelle

    1. Whyyyyy says:

      What’s actually surprising here? Necole hasn’t been interested in this blog for years now it had become more an obligation than a passion and this was aparent in her work. My only question is why abandon the blog? Why not have your trusted “bitchie staff” take over

      (0)
      1. Orgasm Blush says:

        Because it’s her blog. I think of it as raising a child and then they get to the point of becoming an adult. Your work as a parent for the most part is complete. They now carry the weight of their responsibility. She’s raised her blog. She’s done all she can. It’s time to start doing what she really has wanted to do after all these years of “raising” her blog. And to be honest, it’s a relief. Celebrity gossip and gossip in general is not as much fun as I thought it was when I first got interested in it. Maybe it’s because I’ve realized this year that I’m growing up and there’s more to life than celebs beefing on Instagram. I find myself questioning everyday “Why do I give a eff about these people? How are they contributing to my life at this point?” It’s just time to move on from the gossip. Well done Necole. I wish you nothing but the best. And it’s not good bye or I’m going to miss you. It’s more of a See you later! Because I know we’re going to see way more of you just in a better light.

I’ve been a faithful reader since the beginning. It’s hard to see it go but I understand, there’s so much more for you to accomplish. I’m so sad, ya’ll just don’t know!!..but I know that you’ll continue to flourish, I wish you continued success. I can’t wait to see what’s next for you.

    been reading and following for years and years and your ‘no cattiness’ mantra prompted me to do the same with my own site…and thats taken a life of its own. LIGHT A CANDLE FOR ANOTHER AND BRIGHTEN YOUR OWN WAY! you’ve done that necole, you DO that necole and YES YES YES to this big move! enjoy the downtime, sit in the sadness and then up and at em!

    don’t know you, but i know the struggle … keep going, keep growing and go go GO!

    Necole, thank you so much for everything you did over the last few years. You provided a place for us to get the latest on our faves while also bringing attention to social justice issues such as racial equality and feminism. I was also extremely heartened by how loving and accepting you were of people form different walks of life. Most other celebrity sites are cruel and mean-spirited but you always focused on the positive and strove to uplift those who were being bashed. You will truly be missed!

    I mainly read your entries, but today I feel the need to comment. With all the negativity going on in the world today, remaining positive is very important. There will continue to be enough blog sites to sheaf light on what celebs are doing, but we need more inspirational sites. I congratulate you for being able to realize the power that you have to motivate women, and actually embark on that journey when you’re already successful. I wish you nothing but the best, and more success than you ever imagined. Continue to soar Ms. Necole ?

    Really happy for you Necole! It’s an exciting and new time in your life and you are brave enough to embrace it! I am a little sad though, because I would always see gossip stories about celebs on other blogs, but come to yours to get the REAL tea. I trusted your views and your stories. I always felt like you didn’t take sides and gave your readers unbiased accounts of a story. Thanks for all of your time, go enjoy life!!

    Necole, I’ve enjoyed coming to your site for years. I am in the same position as you right now and you should step into who you know you can be. Sure, all of this success is great, but if you don’t feel you are helping others, helping your community, how are you really helping yourself? When we give back, you feel a sense of fulfillment. In addition to that, we must meet our individual 6 dimensions of wellness: occupational, physical, social, intellectual, spiritual and emotional. I am proud of you for putting yourself out there to even start a blog. When you feel afraid, remember that you’ve already achieved success, but you had to put yourself out there to do that, you stepped out of your comfort zone and did that Necole! I wish you continued success in life and I hope we are able to meet one day, both giving back to our communities.

    I almost feel like a very close work colleague has just slammed me in the face with the news they are resigning…in fact, that’s exactly what is happening, as it dawns on me…you (your site) are a huge part of my morning routine, there’s GMA, there’s coffee…there’s logging in….there’s opening up emails and then there’s Necolebitchie. Front and center to provide me with just enough positive information to make me seem cool at the water coolers. HOWEVER!!!!!! Dear Queen, i felt this platform would become smaller under your feet sooner or later. You have the most outstanding and consistent integrity. It will continue to serve your character well. Congrats on your new journey, i pray that it remains in the public’s eye, so that i can continue to root for your success.

    Thank you Necole for this amazing gift you have given us for the last seven years. This is my first time ever commenting but it looks like its now or never. I remember being introduced to your site in college and I was glued to it ever since. This site has been my getaway at work, my daily refreshment on news, and truly a favorite on all my electronic devices. Not only did you blog about celebrity gossip but you gave us great coverage on stories throughout the black community that were very well layed out for any reader to be caught up on world news and well as what is going on with their favorite artist. No matter what you post the values you believe shine brighter than the [salacious tea]. Any reader can see your heart on this site and that is why many come back for more. My story begins this year as I am breaking out of the cooperate jail into a freedom of a new life for me with the start of my business Revamp Maven. Reading your stories and how you began gave me inspiration to step out on faith and leave a worth while legacy I could die being proud of. Even though I am sad you are leaving I understand 100%. Your goal to has been accomplished with this site and it’s time to move own to another. Your dedication to your site and to your fans will not be overlooked and I plan to support you in your next venture whatever it may be. May God continue to use you as a vessel for inspiration to all young females as you were to me. Much Success and God Bless

    Thank you necole. This helps me move on too. I would read your site and my family would always say it’s garbage. I assured them it was not and that you were “the good guy”. My son said I was getting to emotionally attached to you when I would explain to him your story and what you were actually about. For all the good reasons I am glad you will end necolebitchie because you and we all are better than daily gossip that does not improve us in any way. We will all have more time in our day to do something positive with our time than read a gossip blog. Thank you necole for showing us how to jump and fly. Love Ya

    I BEEN ON THIS BLOG SINCE DAY 1- AND I FIND IT SO COMFORTING TO HEAR THIS PART- BECAUSE THIS IS EXACLTY WHAT MY DAILY THOUGHTS ARE ABOUT ………I WISH U THE BEST AND THANK YOU FOR SHARING THIS- AND WHAT A PERFECT TIME TO DO THIS BUT ONTHE EVE OF INDEPENDACE DAY!!!!!

    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.

    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.’

    I’ve asked myself time and time again – When all is said and done, what will people say about you? How are you elevating your audience? What are you doing to contribute to your culture in a positive way? Are you doing a good job of pushing the culture forward? How are you touching people and changing their lives?

    The fact that I can’t answer that right now is problematic for me

    i agree the site should stay open, to me its seems you may still have doubt, dont understand why you cant have family members close friends or people that helped you build the site keep it open. i bet you if just did what ya heart felt , like writing more inspirational woman stories than “gossip ‘stories you would of had no problems or backlash, if anything the backlash was because there were too many rumor gossip stories that really just dumb down black people, they come on ya site just to read gossip that would never help them in real life, those same readers you had in the palm of your hand, you were pose to flip the switch n hit em in the head with the real, the inspirational, the uplifting or whatever “positive ‘ vibes you wanted to send. every now n then you dumb em down with the gossip to keep em coming, its just like hustling in the streets.. but to close the site, to me i think you were just prolly scared of the power you realized you may had or had coming. good luck Nicole on everything. you a sexy dime piece with a great mind to go with it. take care..

  248. You made HISTORY along with other black bloggers that have left. What is unfortunate to me is that when you all leave, you take your content, a piece of our digital culture, history, etc., Is there a way to preserve the content from your blog? It saddens me that so many black cultural, celebrity news posts, reader comments, opinions, etc. will be gone from the search engines for future generations to reference… 🙁 That’s what happened with CONCRETE LOOP ::sigh::

Thank you for giving me good reads, smh moments, stomach hurting laughs from the crazy (in a good way) comments and just being the source of get away from a crazy world, if even just for a moment. Good luck in all that you are trying to achieve. I will wait patiently for your next chapter to begin 🙂

    To be honest, I’ve never read your blog, although I’m familiar with the name. I saw this blurb on a friends feed and read about your triumphant rise and your courageous journey to realize your true potential. Kudos, blessings and the best of success in whatever you do. You will and do inspire others to do the same.

      Femme! I’ve missed your comments. Glad to see you’re still around. Necole, you are a true class act, and an inspiration. I’m looking forward to seeing what you have in store next. I too have dreams of motivating young women, and hope our paths will one day cross.

    Hello Necole, First I would like to say THANK YOU, you changed the game for me since I was 14, now I’m 20. don’t know If you remember, but we had lunch after an event you spoke at Syracuse University. That dinner was the confirmation I needed as an audience from a blogger that I admire and follow. From that point, I read your blog from a different lens because I was able to feel your passion from our conversation. I knew things were different when you went on the “me time” vacation and came back with a different style of writing, when we spoke you hinted to wanting to change the name of the blog, now you’re not keeping your blog, OMG :'(! Through of all of this though, keep reaching and following your dreams, keep inspiring young women like me, and keep being fearless. I can’t say I’m not sad because I AM, but I know you’re leaving us for a purpose, to better Necole, and that’s whats important.
