We are One!
If you’re Nigerian, did you get tempted to break into that song that says ‘We are one, we are the same, no matter where you come from we are one’. I mean that’s a good message behind that song, but that’s not the point.
The blog is one! Can you believe it? It feels so surreal. Not one year oh… One Month! *straight face*.
I know I know, you’ve rolled your eyes. Like only one month only and she’s jubilating.
But I’m learning to celebrate small successes. Every little step. Ok, maybe not with a huge cake, but just a little cupcake.
I know I promised here that I’ll keep blogging even if I had only one hypothetical reader. But you all definitely make it much more worth it.
As a Nigerian kid, growing up we’ll attend all these kid’s parties (especially one-year-old parties) and play lots of games, after which the MC (usually a clown with a multi-coloured wig and a red nose) will announce the winners. So acting as the MC Clown of this blog and in the spirit of celebrating firsts, I’ll like to call out the following people:
Don’t be shy, come and take your e-hug.
Once, as a member of a writing club in Uni, I complained to my roommate that I had writers’ block. She smirked and said ‘Who told who you are a writer’. I wrote an article on that, and that was the last I wrote as a member of that club.
So really, your encouragement is everything. Thank you. For reading, for sharing, for liking, for commenting.
Special Shout Out to Ike of PagesbyIke for being a strong supporter of this journey. It would not have happened without you. It’s her birthday guys. Check out her blog and wish her a happy birthday!
Maybe when the blog is one year, we can have an actual party. With a clown maybe? Yes? No?
Group Hug Everyone.
What small successes have you celebrated recently? Let us know!
Oh, and just some housekeeping stuff:
