YOU GUUUUUUUUUUUUYYYYYYYYYYSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!

The blog is ONE!

Can you believe it is exactly a year ago since I typed and sent out the above broadcast to all my contacts, social media pages and everybody’s cat? Time does fly indeed.

See I always wanted a blog; my very own dot com, but feared the commitment involved. However, with the push and encouragement from my closest people especially my friend Shola [thank you babe], I finally jumped in with two feet and boy it’s been one helluva ride.

Let’s do a quick recap, shall we?

Remember when we talked about dealing with Acne?

For sure one of the most interactive [and my most vulnerable] posts I’ve ever had on here. Perhaps, because I was so open with my struggle, I reckon a lot of you had no qualms sharing yours too and we all learnt a lot from each other that day.  So thank you.

What about the time we talked about apologies – How to get them right and how we sometimes screw them up?

Judging from the number of views and interaction, this post is the 2nd most popular post EVER, on here. I loved writing it, I loved seeing how y’all assimilated it and how much it resonated. This post inspired 3 different posts on 3 other blogs from other blog owner-readers and that made me very happy. It’s the best feeling in the world when your words connect with your intended audience on such a deep level. Thank y’all for being so gracious.

The most personal post I ever put up here was my 2014 struggle. Boy what a year that was!

That post had total strangers emailing me to first thank me for being so honest and then going further to share their own personal struggles. Some of the emails I received were so deep that I’d sometimes take a few days to formulate what I thought would make for an appropriate/befitting response. With this post, I realised that alot of people are going through so much in their various lives and creating a safe medium to share can sometimes make all the difference. Thank you to everyone who trusted me with their thoughts and thanks to everyone who sent me best wishes for my own story. I appreciated it all.

And then there was the hilarity from my birthday weekend where I became an unknowing party to strip clubs and dollar bills……[still gat ma money]

Y’all…. when I tell you that I have the MOST RANDOM experiences ever; believe me! Someone told me that when he read that post, it felt like he was there with me while it was happening – a testament to my gisting/storytelling skills ha ha. A lot of you must have also enjoyed it plenty because it did receive tons of shares & interaction. Bad children.

I also had the lovely birthday, the fitness stuff, the cooking, the tedious job search, random shit, rants and tons more. Just look through the archives; it was a very eventful year indeed.

***

While putting together that quick recap, I realized how much has happened in JUST one year and that to me is the biggest lesson today – that because I attempted to document [and share my journal/journey on here], I can actually look back at it and see VERY CLEARLY how much stuff has happened and how much has changed since the day I took this step [something I would have struggled to see otherwise].

I want to thank you guys, from the bottom of my heart for sticking with me thus far on this crazy ride. Thank you for the support, thank you for the clicks, for sharing with your friends and sharing all over your various social media pages; for subscribing and interacting with me. I truly, truly appreciate you guys and I hope that we continue on in this 2nd blog year.

A quick one: Sometimes, even when I haven’t update the blog, you’ll find me actively posting all kinds of random stuff that I think you guys might find interesting & informative on the various social media pages created solely for the blog. So please, follow these pages to keep up with this train.
