Round of applause…did you notice? Linda Ikeja bought a “mannnnnsion” on Banana Island. Yep she has sucked it to the Lagos elites…the girl from Mushin is now in their neighbourhood. That aside she provided motivation for many young girls letting them know their hustle and their dreams are valid. She has told her story many times and her desire to suceed is nothing but admirable.
I bet you N50 million (of Linda’s money, because I don’t remember being worth that much) that 1001 blogs have sprung up since the announcement of her house purchase. What am I saying- there are already a few existing blogs that have the same format and template as Linda’s already looking to gather money. As if it’s so easy. Lol. Nigerians are bandwagon people, remember how everyone became an event planner, then make up artist then fashion designer (feel free to add to the bandwagon professions). Many people who know me don’t know about this blog ….lol.
Blogging – it can take over your life in both negative and positive ways. For me it has been more in the middle, neither good nor bad. It has always just been a way to release my thoughts, good or bad or to just make myself laugh. Half of the time I post about things I wish someone had told me when I was younger or a current reminder I need in my life or just something to remind someone else that they are not alone.
Pynk360.com is possibly my 6th blog since 2007….i have created and deleted many…saved the posts and I can tell you I have seen personal growth. Some days I wonder why I keep this blog and I tell myself that maybe one day I will write something so impactful that it will change my life or someone else’s from an emotional standpoint for the better.
Somehow its very hard maintaining an original content blog- i believe I am going to start appealing for stories or write ups sooner as opposed to later as I feel I will run out of things to discuss. My goal has always been to make it a women friendly site and discuss everything to do with women with the exception of posting on fashion and weddings per say (gossip included). I believe there are enough people catering to that and not enough people feeding our dreams or goals or even our sense of humor- sometimes a good laugh helps us forget the lemons life is busying squeezing in our eyes. Our womanity needs to be emphasized and I tend to write from a purely personal point of view without violating my loved ones or others who put their trust in me (people who email for advice – even though i don’t believe I have “sheet” to say most times).
Will this site make anyone richer- emotionally I hope so, financially if God wills it. Till then i have a job- well sorta kinda and my desire to be in education gets stronger everyday…it’s God’s way of telling me the time is nearer than I think.
Do you own a blog or website? If yes, why? If no, why not?
Sorry I just finished eating the Parle G biscuit in the picture…it was delish!😅
