I’m Darleene Powells, and this here blog is an obsession that first started in 1997, although I technically did not begin blogging until 1998. Those archives now live on offline.

darleeneisms started as my online journal and evolved into a space where I discussed journalism, race issues, my favorite TV shows, the Lakers and any thing else that might catch my fancy. (A lot of things catch my fancy.) I also have two niche blogs — The Wedding Decorator and the Hack Mom — that now feed into this site.

Thanks for visiting!
