I thought I would’ve had the chance to blog more often this time around than I did last year. Well, from the way things are shaping up, there are quite a number of empty days already on my blog calendar (Route 85). This is not too good. But I can’t help it. I can’t say that am starting this blogging year on a bad note either. No, far from it. As matter fact, I have been pretty busy for all the right reasons. Many gbosa (kudos) to the Almighty God who has made it possible; who has answered and as well blessed me for trusting, or better put, trying my best to trust Him even when it seemed that there was little hope left.
The coming weeks—perhaps months—will further affect my activity on WordPress But instead of staying away completely and concentrating alone on this God-given task ahead, I have decided to blog once or twice a week. This may not be consistent, but then it’s better to keep this blog alive than dormant for long. As for you my dear friends, I humbly ask that you bear with me. I will do my best to keep up with your blogs (that includes commenting). The truth is that I have un-followed some blogs along the way. But then, if you find me as one of your ardent readers please know that I enjoy reading your posts/blog updates a lot. Above all, you have the basic quality for a blogger in our blogging community.
You may notice that I have removed a few topics on this blog. They include:
- The Listener (WIP)
- The Stand (WIP)
Considering the advice of my writing buddies (including the ones I have made here on WordPress , I decided to pull down these writings in progress (WIPs) as I now consider them potential materials for publication. In their place, I will be posting sequels alongside short stories and poems (haiku inclusive). To these new items, you will also find 100-word stories. “One Week, One Proverb” will now come with some background story or interpretation. I believe this will help us all to understand and appreciate these proverbs even more, especially as most of them have to do with the African society. But I must admit that you all have been wonderful! Wise men and women: you all have come up with nice interpretations to the ones posted already.
I want to use this opportunity to thank Paulette Mahurin, author of The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap, for her exceptional kindness. Paulette, if you are reading this, please know that your book is a page-turner! You’re undoubtedly one of the finest woman writers I’ve come across in the historical field. And I can’t wait to put up a review—my very first—of this stunning piece on right here.
Hearty thanks to you all, my friends, for the “likes” and “comments.” Any questions and thoughts that you wish not to express here, you can contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org
