Un Joyeux Anniversaire Très Tardif

Yes, I am trying to flaunt my French. Even if I had to check with translator before posting. I know. No shame. I am in a celebratory mood today in respect to the real anniversary of my blog. its long past, but I must celebrate! So I wrote an article that day that I never got to publish. This is me doing what I need to do. Maybe there is hope for me after all. I have a number of articles that I never got around to posting. Lets see how I can get them out. I will tell you if it’s an old article or a fresh one. Starting with this one that is two and half months or fourteen and a half months late, or both. Here what I wrote for my blog anniversary. Thank you for reading:

Blog’s 3rd Anniversary


Reality Check: What I like to call Anniversary Questions.

Ha! So I still have a blog. Qservers have sent me an e-mail and I have to renew domain and hosting. Should I renew or I should just let the blog go? What have I done with it in the last one year anyway to justify the cost of renewal ( it’s not much though). What have I put out there? Has it been a case of writer’s block or is it procrastination? What happened to all the half-written articles in my Evernote folders? Where did my desire to model a reasonable and decent personal blog go? How do you have so much going in your life that cannot translate to well articulated blog posts? How is that you have so much (concerns) you are itching to share, causes you want to raise awareness for, upcoming (dangerous) trends you want to raise alarm and alerts about, but you are not doing so?

The questions are endless. But I am not in a hurry to give my truthful answer(s). The answer is right there in my face, on my mind and the tip of my tongue (yes, all this just for emphasis). So permit me to evade it and move on with my non conventional post.


Reality Check: What I like to call anniversary questions.

So this week marks the second anniversary of this blog. It’s been two years! Already? At two years most children would have started walking, talking, eating solid food, turning their immediate surrounding upside down. They would be done with the first stages of teething problems by now and would be enrolled in toddlers class at school. Not my blog o. It’s still teething and crawling at 2 years! So it’s a late bloomer. Late bloomers have been known to excel exceedingly in the long run. I am holding on to every word of that. Never mind the hard work it will take for it to happen. I really don’t like hard work, smart work is better. Yinmu. (Laughing at myself). Never mind that today is May 2 and the anniversary date was March 17th or thereabout. Let’s not point out the fact that I started this post on the anniversary day this will be the 13th post in its 26 months of existence. Chai!

Having said all that, it is still my blog, I am paying for it. I still think something good can come out of it. It can still be a sound for unheard and unseen voices. There are boundless possibilities for it and on that note, I say ‘cheers’ to a blog born out of good intentions, worthy and laudable causes.

PS: This blog was 3 years in March this year so…….

Anyway that is it for an anniversary. Till I post again, stay blessed.

And let Love win.

A Very Belated Happy Anniversary!
