Hey there everybody, this is your Editor-In-Chief speaking, Jelani Carter. You might remember me as the former Co-Founder/EIC of the blog Fly Little Things. Well to put it bluntly… FLT is done. Dead. Over with. Yup, I decided this year that chapter of my life had to come to a close. Building that brand with my best friend Grizz, and having many of my close personal friends work on it with me from 2012 up until 2017 was honestly a blast. I learned a lot, wrote a lot, and made bonds with artists I never thought I would get the chance to meet.
But to be honest with you, I got bored. Bored with the name, bored with the look of the site, bored of the blog, bored with the brand… Just…. bored. The thing I wasn’t tired of, though, was my original reasoning for starting the blog in the first place. When I started FLT, it was at a weird transition period in my life. I was just laid off from my first real job (blogging, funny enough), and also back home from a quick excursion in Florida after pretty much disappointing my parents in every single way. I wanted an outlet. A central hub where I could post whatever I wanted. Whether it was music, TV & movie trailers, sports news, fashion, I knew that I wanted a place for me and my friends to be able to post the most fly shit that was happening in the world to US. And that’s what I created. But, it’s time for a bit of a rebranding. Something new, a little more upscale, refined.
So, like a phoenix rising from the ashes, we are now the website CLAIRMONT. Different look and feel, but the same heart. If you’re down to continue to rock with us, by all means, welcome to the party. We’ve been waiting for you.
