Q and A
1)with your new business and twitter thing…I believe your anonymity may have been compromised a little…do you feel it will hold you back from going as personal as you used to?
ans: um... actually i do, i have actually excluded myself from the business thing cos of my professional exams, so am kinda not on the page anymore, um and am back to being anonymous on twitter, i realized that i cant express myslef as much as i used too, and i have even toyed with the idea of running a second blog with a different id, along side this one, especially on twitter its hard cos some of my friends from real life are now following me and they tend to be really critical of what i say, its really annoying
2) body/face which would u pick and do u think its wrong to hook up in church?
ans: I will actually pick body, i have seen how it feels to be with a guy with a great body and theres no going back from there lol, um about hooking up in church, if you mean like dating a guy from your church, i will say theres nothing wrong, people even prefer it, cos most of those relationships end in marriage lol
3)Why are anonymous and what is the one best thing you derive from being a blogger.
ans: i am only half anonymous right now, some people know who i am, but i guess anonymity gives the freedom to express your self without fear of being judged wrongly, when people read your blog and drop comments they can be real cos they dont know you and they can tell you the truth without fear of repraisal.
The best thing i have derived from blogging would be the wonderful people i have met, people who have inspired me to be better, to work harder that impossible things can be achieved.
4) What's your favourite childhood memory?
ans: My favourite childhood memory would be growing up in an estate with lots of kids my age, you know that age where we dont know who's rich and who's poor, the freedom that ignorance and naivety brings, climbing trees and playing balls with the boys, baking sand cakes and paper dolls with the girls, i wish those for my kids.
5)What has been your best blogging experience so far?
ans: The weightloss challenge organised by Sting, it helped me a lot and i lost a whole lot of weight, it was really great, the support was constant, and it turned out really well
6)So why did you start blogging and what have you learnt from it?
ans: i started blogging when i was 14years i had just finished sec school, and i was in that stage when i was experiencing a whole lot for the first time, it was an avenue to express myself and be completely truthful
that freedom of being truthful without any consequence was so cherished.
from blogging, i have learnt confidence, i used to be a very insecure person, thinkn that noone shared my issues, that i was worse of, but in blogsville i have learnt from peoples life experiences, compared them to mine learnt that things always get better
i have found love for God again, reasons to always be thankful, reminders to always be thankful, its been a wonderful journey
