I am terrible with particular anniversaries, therefore it comes as no surprise to me that I missed out my one year anniversary with bloggers com.
SOUND THE ALARM! :D RAISE THE ROOF!! :D BRING OUT THE GOOD CHINA!!! :D MY BLOG IS ONE..ok technically its one year and 3 days old today! Yippeee skippeee
Yep its been one year and I have not regretted joining at all. This is the story behind my joining process.
I have a facebook account and would often publish notes, pictures and links, that regularly drew in comments. It became a bit distracting and affected my school and work life and so I deactivated the account for a bit. Soon after my exams were over, I reactivated the account but alas, I found out my notes had disappeared. I went WTF immediately but that of course didnt help. lol.
Then my very good friend Nutty J announced on her page, her desire to start blogging. To cut a long story that bit shorter, here is a transcript of our conversation, typo errors, ebonics and broklish (mix of English and Broken English) included.
Mena: Good on you to start a blog, please let me know whenever you are ready! amfully in suppor!! :D
I havent started a blog yet, but am thinking of moving my notes to this website whenever i can findany ofthem!.
I only saw my oldnotes thru people i have tagged before. i.e if i go to your profile and click on 'notes about you',then i might see my own old notes. very long thing with facebook wahalaand my deactivating.., so ammoving it toblogville!
found out so far that blogspot requires you to have a googlemail account but ill movemy thoughts there sometimein the near future.
Nutty J: I have started one...but i'm just trying to make the templates and activities there a bit interesting and attractive so peeps wud be tempted to stop by
But i'm trying my hardest not to let at least 80% of those I know in FB discover me there...facebook is like a family. everyone knows everyone
But ther I could meet new people where our common interest is going to be writing...its tempting ni...as in Mena no one wud know u.
But I guess in time sha they will trace one back to fb (*hiss*)
do and come oooo, come and join the beautiful city of blogsville
Mena: Yes o, been working on mine, shifting my notes there. I actually dont know how the thing works yet sha so its fuzzy. And I dont know how much of myself i should reveal, as mad people full this internet world!

Nutty J: Helllooooooooooo,

Mena: LOL, ALREADY REPLIED TO YOURS! YOU NO DEY CHECK YOUR BLOG ABI? Mamuje is XXXXX na!
Nutty J: I guessed that was you on wordpress....but i've deleted that wodpress account sha...its a bit boring, besides I'm getting tired trying to update on FB..then on Blogsville...which is still in progress.So Mamuje is XXXXX? the girl na correct girl sha...I like the anonymity on blogsville...at least out of 10 people only one or two can know its you....I'll check out ur page...abeg if u catch me there, pls dont tell anyone we know oooo....that place get peace and serenity I tell you.....and everyone is mature...i don de blab again...Happy Weekend Jare....lots of love

Found this great Irish poem online and am dedicating to you guys.
Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers—
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours—
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!
May God be with you and bless you.
May you see your children's children.
May you be poor in misfortunes
and rich in blessings.
May you know nothing but happiness
from this day forward.
May the blessing of the rain be on you—
the soft sweet rain.
May it fall upon your spirit
so that all the little flowers may spring up,
and shed their sweetness on the air.
May the blessing of the great rains be on you,
may they beat upon your spirit
and wash it fair and clean,
and leave there many a shining pool
where the blue of heaven shines,
and sometimes a star.
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hands
Dear Reader, when you walk through the storms of life, when you have a dream and it seems so hard to achieve, dont give up, keep working on it, hold your held high and walk on confidently, for you will never walk alone. Amen
Lots of Love
