this is me...linda

hi everyone. my name is linda ikeji, im 26 years old, i am from nkwerre, imo state. i am a graduate of english from the university of lagos. i finished in 2003. im christian/catholic. im fro a family of 9. i have five sisters and a brother. im the second girl, second child. im 5 '8', pretty..or so people have told me..i no im pretty..lol. im a model, been modeling for eight years in nigeria. in 2004, i started my own company called blackdove communications...why the name blackdove? it was inspired by silverbird..a name and a bird. it so happens that my name favourite colour is black and favourite bird is the dove..so viola! i run a modeling agency and im also into events management..mostly beauty pageants and fashion shows. done a few myself, the problem with this country is lack of sponsorship..anyway, thankfully this year i really discovered my true passion..my magazine. fm&b magazine. how many of you have seen it? i did a formal launching on the 25th of june this year..unfortunately i havent been able to release the second edition..which by the way has been ready for a while now..its just been difficult raising money to print it. the magazine business is really capital intensive..but dont worry, you will see the second very soon and if you loved the first edition, the second will simply blow your mind..its packed and more mature than the first. i have a website for my mag..its fmbmagazine.com...but pls dont check it now..its under construction, i'll let you know when to go check it out..i was inspired to start my blog after i saw bella naija's blog..how many of you have seen it? the gal is a dynamite..thanks for inspiring me bella..enough said, dont want to bore you.if you want to know anything about me, feel free to ask me...and yes im single...searching? maybe lol. today sunday 26 2006 marks the beginning of lots of fun for us..i promise to give you the best..make sure u visit this blog atleast everyday..God bless you all..linda

You're writing style has improved a lot over the years. Now look at you, making money from doing something you love! This is inspiration for me now! Thanks Lindostic Linda! :D Keep up the good work!!!!

Reading Linda's first Post has successfully given me goose bumps all over.... I'm proud of u miss.

Anonymous said...

Hello Linda, just had to go back down the lane to see how you started, the way ur write up was done and the way ur pics were placed are so different from today. You were a learner then but now, you are a pro, a pro that upcoming bloggers like us look up to. You have taught me that perseverance really pays, humility too is a virtue that you posses if you weren't humble all through the years, you would have left blogging but you persisted, this is so encouraging to me, you inspire me, I just started a blog and later I got discouraged but you have taught me to continue and I will and I do hope I will one day be a success story like you.

Ride on Linda Ikeji!

Always wondered what your first post was...Genius-Linda(GLINDA). God make you bigger

Anonymous said...

Linda never forget from where God (bc it just has to be Him) brought you from. The days of despair and uncertainty but you persevered and now it's harvest. Enjoy the blessing, but forget the Blesser. As you grow there'll be many pressures, the powers of evil which controls much of this world would want to use you. Remember who brought you here for to Him you shall return in the fullness of time.

OBINNA JAMES said...

Linda u don advertise urself finish, don't worry soon i will come and enjoy ur i do, i do rice, Lol. May GOD be with u.

Dauda Aliu said...

OMG. Was I being curious when I approached www.google.com to ask; "first post ever made on linda ikeji blog in 2006 by Linda Ifeoma Ikeji"? Huh?! And I got the answer right here. (I have seen what the genesis all looked like). Consistency and perseverance are the words here.
My quote "ideas do not matters, it is what you do with them that counts" dwells so well on this. You know what I mean?!
I can't believe it took 5, 10 and 11 months to get first, second and third comments here respectively.
I need not to say more than this.
Well done girl (Ms Linda). And of course a big shout out to Calabar Girl (I'm gonna search for her to drop some 'respect' in her closet)...she rocked this blog big time.

bernie sweet said...

Dear Linda,
There is a saying, ' find your passion, turn it into a career and you would never have to work a day in your life'.
I must confess, I am an occasional reader of LIB, I even rarely comment. Though lately, I have taken great interest in you, to be precise after the MR AYE DEE Incident.I particularly like the way you handled the situation right to the very end and the turn out of events, like it was a movie ( I'm guessing more like a nightmare for you lol). It shows you have your head in the game and God's backing ( you said it yourself Google lifts bans/ suspension, weeks, even months after)
All my life I have wondered 'what is my talent?' what am I really good for? Then I realised ( only recently) that I have a great passion, something that all the drama in my life cannot take me away from, Fitness. I am so passionate about fitness thus the nickname, ' gym rat'.
I don't want to take much of your time because I know you are a very busy woman and when I start talking about my hobby, I can't stop (lol). I am currently running a fitness channel, BBM Channel C00446CF4, ' Hot Mama fitness'.
You have inspired me greatly to set my goals from perspective. I'm learning the true meaning of the phrase, ' be yourself'.
Please be my mentor and join my channel. Thank you.

Janelicious said...

Linda you are an inspiration to young girls especially me,that i had to google your first post as a blogger, Since i discovered your blog through my elder brother in 2012 i have not stop commenting.I was using the name janelicious to comment, until i opened my own BLOG janeofodile.blogspot.com i had to use my real name.
Am greatful am part of this great family. May God give you more wisdom and me too.

Christina typearls said...

Lily of Nigeria said...

Linda nne, you're a big inspiration to me. I remember posting the above comment as AnonymousAnonymous 12:31 PM in 2013. Things didn't go smoothly and I wasn't consistent. I have learnt so many lessons , and have decided to restart blogging again. I even have social media presence on facebook (Blog with Grace), Twitter @iBlogWithGrace , instagram @blogwithgrace and pintrest (iBlogWithGrace ). I duff my hat for you Linda Ifeoma Ikeji, the Queen of consistency, keep shining darling. I visit your blog every day. Nigeria is proud of you.

Hi Linda,My name is Irene Ubani.I am a low key LIB fan.For some reason, I just decided to check out your first blog post and honestly, I am dazed.You have shown me tonight that hardwork and consistency pays. It's also ok to pen all our dreams down and start working on them irrespective.I remember the line where you said you wanted to publish the magazine but couldn't but mama look at house you made it.For me, I have chosen to live for the sake of the poor.I will be rich for the sake of the homeless.All my hardwork today isent for me but for them.I small after a greater Nigeria.
