Hey Y'all. Have you missed me? It seems not so.....well, maybe except for Ms. Uzo. Thanks for checking in girl. LOL.

I've been in Nigeria and just returned yesterday. I didn't really have the time to check email and do anything online while I was home so I missed my 1 year blog anniversary which was on August 10th. I can't believe it's been that long, even though I've been choppy with updating.

When I think about what this blog means to me, it started as a way to express myself, albeit not anonymously, but it has become more than that. It has reinforced my belief and hope in the future of Nigeria. I am part of a Nigerian blogging community full of amazing people, with diverse interests and talents, full of creativity, ambition and drive, many of whom are committed, as I am, to making a positive contribution to the growth and development of a better Nigeria in some way, shape, or form. In addition, I have made friends - Biodun, and Miguel, to name a couple, who have added exponentially to the quality of my life. I have found old friends. I am able to keep in touch with other friends in a unique way. I have been inspired by other bloggers, whom I would love to meet and get to know as well.

In the last year, I have shared significant moments with many of you. You have rejoiced with me, encouraged me, supported me and reaffirmed my faith, optimism and hope in human and Nigerian nature many a times. I appreciate everyone who reads silently, and voices their opinions by commenting as well. I look forward to another year of blogging. I'm not making any promises to blog more often or anything like that. I want to do more frequent updates and really develop my "Change the World" series but other than that, I'm not sure where it'll go. However; I am sure that wherever it goes, it'll be an experience that I will cherish for a long time to come. Happy Belated Anniversary to me!
