The Many faces of one woman
by Melanie C. Jordan

Many of you know me as a poet and some know me as an author to two poetry books. Some of you may know me as a co-author to a true crime story that I have written with a dear friend, around a year ago. I am known for my web deigning skills and my graphic designs.  No, no I am not bragging here, there is a point I am getting too.
I have been on many radio stations and did a voice over or two in New York City for commercials. Did someone say awards? Why, yes I have won many of those for my poetry. Looking Within is a poetry forum I use to run a while back. This great forum was created in 2005 and I ran in up till last year.
Now I am running Imagine, an online magazine that caters to comics, writers and all that fun stuff we all grown to love. Imagine was not my first magazine, I ran a magazine online called Imaginative Artisans in 2005. It lasted for a few months than some personal things in my life came up and, well, I put it to the side to collect my inner self and find my soul.
The point of this story is that there is so much more to me than meets the eye. Yes! I am creative and I love what I do, but I am also a person with a big heart and the love of people and their inner emotions. I always had in the back of my mind to write a book, to help other people find themselves. Yeah, yeah, I know there are tons of books out there dedicated to helping people. For that reason alone I stepped away from that idea and put all my heart and soul into Imagine.
The more I think about it, this may sound like bragging but this is not my true attention. I truly want to express I have a soul just like you and I feel just like you. I guess this story is about “me”, I just want to share a bit or two about me that many of you may not know.
I am a sweet heart, yet I am a Bitch. I have a way with people because I genuinely care.  I am, who I am, and what you see is what you get. Not one person that I encounter is treated or spoken too differently. I speak to you all the same way I would a family member. Many people have told me I must treat every person in my life differently. I know what they mean by that. My clients that I work with should be held into a different category than my family and friends. However that is not me.
Life is too short to play different roles of personalities. I understand when it comes to business, especially with Imagine that things should be dealt with professionally. Let me tell you, I handle things to the best of my abilities. I’m doing something I enjoy. I’m having fun meeting creative people and learning and growing from the people I meet.
Well, I guess this is the end of my little story. Whatever point I was trying to make, I hope you got it.
Oh, get ready ,for I am going to start using my blog for more personal writings and poetry.
