Guys! Its been 3 months already. 3 months of me yapping away on here and 3 months of you guys indulging my every whim, and reading and leaving me lovely/hilarious/insightful comments and sharing with your friends/families and I cannot thank you guys enough. You guys are simply amazing. I’m not above admitting that I did a google comparison of site stats for new blogs; yes… I checked. Lol. And I’m happy and proud to announce to you guys that we broke those records in our first month, so this 3 month mark? Ace!

When I embarked on this journey, I had zero expectations, I told myself it was just an avenue to blow off steam and silence the voices in my head. I was right, it’s exactly that. But it has become so much more….. I’ve made friends from here and connected with some of you on levels that shock me; I’ve gotten emails from  total strangers based off this blog where you commend, suggest stuff and share some of your innermost deepest concerns  with me and I realize that this is no longer just about me. I don’t take this responsibility lightly and I appreciate every one of you that has ever written me for even bothering and for being so brave and receiving and open with me. It’s a journey we are in together and it’ll only get better. I moderate the comments on this blog but I’m starting to think I may not need to as I have never received one left sided comment this entire time of doing this; NOT EVEN ONE. I’m happy that that negativity that can sometimes be found on the internet doesn’t live here. Thank you!

As interactive as you guys have been with me thus far, I still think we can do more, so I want to take this time to ask you guys to please use the CONTACT ME form on the top left side of this page to please send me suggestions on stuff you’d like for me to write posts on, stuff you’d like to see here, topics, interaction…everything! I’d really appreciate your input; thank you in advance. Also, feel free to use it to ask me out on a date too 😀 I’m just saying… ha ha. You can also reach me with your input on my twitter account @GBTheBlog – where I’ve been posting daily smoothie recipes for try-outs and updating y’all about the May Challenge which almost coming to an end *sigh of relief* lol

So who’s throwing me a 3 months party? Where am I picking up my invite? Will there be jollof rice and small chops? Party packs? I have a dress that needs to be pranced around in… I’m waiting. Lol

As you’re well aware, our dear country Nigeria has literally been on a standstill due to the fuel crisis aptly tagged the #Petrocalypse on social media. And I’m typing this Blogverssary post a day late because of that exact reason – I couldn’t charge my devices therefore no writing-  I have heat rashes on my neck for fuck’s sake! Last time I had heat rashes on my body, I was 11 years old, why is an adult CHIC walking around with a nappy neck? Because… Nigeria!! I had to empty my fridge of all veggies, fruits and stew/soup and it hurts to see such waste of money/time/resources. It’s just heartbreaking. I really think some extra-terrestrial being just needs to click the reset button on this charade of a country and let’s start all over again. It’s unbelievable.

PS: If you you’re reading this and you have access to fuel, biko epp me! I’m begging.

Happy blogverssary to GB dot com and my sincere gratitude to all of you. Many air kisses*

Cheers xx

S.
