I started a new blog on medium.
One of the first posts on this blog went live on July 07, 2006. The reason for coming on blogger was to muse about anything and everything.
It soon evolved from being a journal of a young woman looking for her place in the world into an advocacy channel. Between January 2007 and January 2012, articles were cross-posted from "Dis Generation," my weekly youth-focused column in the Nation newspaper, one of Nigeria's national newspapers.
With 257,083 pageviews - 651 posts, - 70 followers, this blog and I have come a long way...traveled across the globe on free tickets because of the recognition it brought :-)
Oh well. But we are to keep growing and help others up in the process!
Today, July 04 2015, I'm putting a close to this chapter of my life :-), to start something more beautiful, by the grace of God.
Please keep enjoying all the past articles on here... six hundred and fifty one in all. And the new ones coming on medium.
Thank you very much for all these years of keeping a tab on my works. Many thanks to the guest bloggers who occasionally came to my rescue when I had those writer's block...LOL... And YES! Thank you to my family, good friends, mentors and all those who believed in me and gave me a spot to stand on their shoulders. I hope we'll keep inspiring one another.
Still on blogger: Faith & Books, Research and funny short stories.
What next? I'm at CSJ sharpening my ax! Grace to it, grace to it!
Why? "Remember: The duller the ax the harder the work; Use your head: The more brains, the less muscle." Ecclesiastes 10:10 The Message (MSG)
Where to find me:
- Blog on MEDIUM
- RURAL REPORTERS
- OFFLINE - where exciting things still happen :-)
