Hey All! After my last post which was kind of a depressing song, how about a diferent beat?
Thanks so much for the show of love and support. I appreciate it! I've only been in the blog world for a short time and I feel like a part of the Naija blog family. It's a wonderful thing I tell you and so, I got thinking. And when I think, my imagination tends to begin to run away with me a little bit. Before I let you in on my insane thought process, let me first say this - I've gotten obsessed with reading different people's blogs everyday. Like many of you, there are some I must hit without fail. And God forbid if that one person doesn't post, I feel like my day is not complete. Many of us have posted lists of blogs we read, and here are some of mine. This is by no means an exhaustive list o.
Objectively Emotional Olawunmi
Obviously Passionate Obi
Mi Hermanita Sola Minx
Back Up Bent
On track Onada
Please forgive my attempt at alliteration guys!!!! So back to my thinking ways. Like I said earlier, I let my imagination run away with me for a time and found myself thinking that the way we support each other, have great discussions about every topic under the sun, share ideas, and LISTEN to each other in the blogworld, combined with the very obvious talent that we all have in something or the other....WE ARE THE ONES THAT CAN MAKE NIGERIA BETTER. So much for me losing my optimism, huh? I imagined we all met and came up with this great master plan to stealthily attack the problems (and problem people) in Nigeria, not through the most obvious and corrupt political avenues but in ways that they wouldn't even see us coming. I imagined us chipping away at the problems and solving them....**using fashion(Icy, Low and Bella), photography(Wale and TaureanMinx), mentoring/speaking(Miguel, Buki, Delot and Onada), humor(Naijabloke and DonChiChi), writing(most, if not all, of us), journalism(Ms Minx, Wale), music(Ababoy,Obi), justice(Olawunmi), education(Diamond, Belle, Zaiprincesa and myself)....sneaking up on those people who think politics is the only way a country can be positively changed and pulling the rug right out from under them. Naive maybe, but just a thought. To pull this thought back to the title of this post, I just think it's so great that we're all still quite young (YES, YOU ARE!) but we are growing and recognize that there are things bigger than ourselves that we need to fight for and represent. That is evident in all the blogs I mentioned above and in the way we respond to each others daily musings. Like I said though, just a thought but WHAT IF.....?
