Celebration Time

Put on your dancing shoes, pour yourself a glass of champagne and toast the person next to you… celebrate with me… this is my 100th post on blogspot!!!

I started this blog in August 2006 because I had so much to talk about, so much past experiences and current emotions to sort out. Today March 13, 2007 I still have a lot to say… but I’m already on my way… 100 posts on my way.

I wanted to send a shout-out to Naijadude and DisillusionedNaijaGirl… both of you inspired me to start blogging. Another shout-out goes to AfricanPrincess… you were the first person to comment on my blog.

During this journey I’ve learnt more about myself as a person and the world around me. I’ve become part of a little ‘dysfunctional’ blog family… I now have cyber sisters, blog brothers, friends… and I really appreciate each and every one of you.

We’ve laughed, smiled, cried together and I’ve never felt the need to be anything other than what I am…

I appreciate every comment left on my blog, every suggestion, every word of encouragement, every piece of advice… (well except for the holy rollers and ‘recent anonymous liars’… but this is a happy post so we won’t get into all that…)

Some of my favorite write-ups are:

It’s been quite emotional writing my Mummy Sundays:

I’ve written 13 so far. The links are on the sidebar of my blog

I’ve also been trying to deal with my daddy issues:

As well as the uncle:

Documenting my journey with my boyfriend Kimor:

And most recently… I love writing my ‘Life in a Song’ posts

If the glass of champagne wasn’t enough to get you boozed up, feel free to have a drink at your local bar or grocery store (if you’re into fruity shit) on me… Olawunmi, Laspapi, Soul and Vera will pick up the tab later… lol.

Here’s to a hundred more posts… Cheers blog family
