Naija's best daily read and most controversial blog is...

Common guys, how can you say my blog is the most controversial blog in Nigeria? I'm hurt! What is controversial about my blog? Is it the posts, the comments, the bickering, the abuses, the gossip, or even the famous commenter, Alicia?. Seriously, what is controversial about my blog? You voters should mind yourselves o...:-). But then, best daily read? Now you talking.

So I won two awards at the 2011 Nigerian blog awards. Best Daily Read and Most Controversial Blog. Thanks to everyone who voted. Really appreciate. Check out the rest of the winners here

    Congrats Linda, I'd say a joint award for both you and the people who make comments on this blog. You bring us interesting stories and the comments are a good read - especially Alicia's lol! I live outside naija, however I'm at home on your blog:)

    I agree with Solaye. You deserve all four. But i've long suspected that Naija blog awards thing is not about the best blogs winning in their proper categories. These weird blogs win and you wonder who is voting for them. I went to the chutzpah blog and could not even read it let alone appreciate it.

    When the NBA has a fairer, logical, more transparent process, we shall recognise it then! For now I just dey laugh every year it comes round.

    It's like a daily Naija newspaper for us over here LOL
    Keep it up Linda.

    PS - The controversial award should be shared with your top commenters LOL

    Congrats linda!!! You deserve it, urs was the first blog I discovered followed by Bella...

    Lol at the controversial blog award, speaking of controversial; please dear can you kindly take down the pictures of Titi's body out of respect for her family.

    Fact remains,in a good country where the judicial and Forensic experts were functional, these pictures will not be in the hands of civilians cos crime scenes are off limit to personnels outside the law force.I know its hard to understand gruesome acts like these and these pictures are being sent as broadcast messages of blackberry but at least you will be one less person who caused the family any more grief than they are presently going through..Please dear Linda, please take it down, Personally I will not send such pictures as a broadcast, her killer will get what he deserves either by law or Gods way...

    My take Linda...

    Congrats to all bloggers.

    Nonetheless i was expecting LIB to get more than a nod objectively speaking -no greed intended- :))
    However there is some serious competition Ms. Ikeji! It is all well though, it makes it even more interesting.

    Surprise suprise, BN is not in the list...i don't know about this, i mean 360 won the best designed blog for goodness sake...No bashing intended though.

    Well oh well, looks like LIB is on its way to big things :)

    SN: No sweepstakes on LIB these last months? -sorry to put you on the spot Linda- ^^

    Congrats my Lindacious Linda.

    Your posts, your style, your sense of himour, your commenters etc are controversialy controversial, talking in terms of controversy.

    Congratulations!! you deserve it!

    @fannie. Bella Naija asked the organisers to exclude her from the awards. Don't know why. Her layout might be different, but she is still a blogger. Even theybf.com, the almighty perezhilton, bossip, sandrarose. necole bitchie are still regarded as bloggers in the States.So......there.

    Anyways. I still loves this blog, because of the issues she addresses and yes, gossip. Who doesn't love gossip? Gossip makes the world go round baby!

    Linda can I be your beauty contributor? Please shoot me an email@funkyme54@hotmail.com.

    Bye.

    although Bella may have told them to exclude her or whatever....this is why i think Linda's blog is rated higher and receives more views than Bella.

    *and no I'm not trying to start a Bella vs Linda thing*

    Linda, allows us to connect with her on a personal level, even sharing her pics with us, etc. she gives a lot of her personal opinion and sense of humor. Whereas Bella Naija seems to be like a robotic site. I understand she is trying to be as professional as possible, but sometimes she wont even post her own pics, or talk about herself, or anything. we don't really KNOW her, we don't really connect with her. I'm sure she prefers it like that, but that's why I believe Linda tends to get more "hits" than Bella. and we get REAL stories of real situations happening in the country, not the same old tired mediocre fashion and weddings. (not saying they're not cool or whatever) but Linda gives us a mixture of the glitz and glam COUPLED with the REALITY. Linda also allows us to express ourselves, no matter how "bad" the comments may be, whereas Bella and team censor EVERYTHING and refuse to post any comments that aren't kiss ass. and thats what I believe sets Linda apart from Bella.

    ADIOS.

    Congrats Linda on the award. I think this is the best blog in Nigeria but the only egbe blogs like bella naija have is the fcat that they have a real website. So, i think it's high time you got a proper domain and website(lindaikeji.com). You can't keep using blogger forever.

    I'm a web designer so i can help you in this regard if you want.

    Congrats Omalicha.
