2007 Recap

I created this blog in Nov 2006 after reading bellanaija.blogspot.com for several months and being enchanted by it. But I didn't take it seriously until March 2007 when Mrs Somebody, Calabargal and a few other bloggers took it upon themselves to advertise my blog to drive traffic to it. I'm grateful to you guys.

I know some people think I take this blog too seriously, considering I don't get paid for it. The thing is, I take everything I do seriously. And I'm glad I take this blog seriously because it's been worth it.

There are so many other things I have gained from blogging that money can't buy. Like friendship, like love, like meeting people like Tayo, Chidi, Jumoke, Chude, CWB, TJ, especially Olu and so many others. And knowing people like Wienna, Mimi, Kpakpando, Tonipayne, Bobby, Shola Pacheco, Naijagal, Bellanaija, and every single person on blogsville (Bloggers and readers of blogs). Would I have ever met you guys if I hadn't started blogging? I have no regrets.

I've blogged about everything from sex, marriage, love, gossip, scandals, my own struggles as a young enterprenuer and a single woman, and everything fun, annoying, sad, unhappy and different. Thanks for tolerating all my craziness, encouraging my good sense, sharing experiences with over 2, 000 readers of this blog, and for taking time to drop comments.

All in all, thanks for being with me all through the year.

I thank God for giving me the wisdom to start this blog, Bella Naija for being the inspiration and you guys for the encouragement. Whether you love me or not, your comments, whether positive or negative have somehow made me more knowledgable about life and made me a better person.

I also hope this blog has touched your lives in the most positive way.

Here's a recap of some of the things we have experienced on this blog.

Really,It's been great to know you,to say the least.You are such an inspirational force especially to many young girls both in Africa and in the diaspora.You are an embodiment of an hardowrking and highly intelligent young Lady. I admire and respect a woman who takes pride in her appearance and believes in what she does!A woman with true tenacity. And you are one of those few women in my good book.

You have been a very fine and wonderful friend /Sis.

Bear in mind always that, there will always be - Pull Him or Her Down elements out there..no matter what you do (good or bad) people will always talk it's part of human nature,reality of our very existence....Oprah Winfrey once said: "When you are 40 you don't care about what people say about you again..."

Sometimes, negative talks shapes our lives for better..the wise person is the one who takes criticism stoically.

I wish you and your entire family God's richest blessings and all the best in 2008! Happy New Year! Stay blessed!

Lots of Love
