Versatile Blogger Award

I would like to appreciate bjgaulton : Toutons Tubas and Other Tales for for nominating me for this award. Thank you so much.

I was born and raised in Nigeria in Ibadan. I studied English at the University of Ibadan in Nigeria . I love writing, reading, teaching, exploring and shopping. I like making people happy, kids and nature. I love watching sunset. I dislike injustice, oppression and discrimination of any kind.

Blogging to me is a medium of expressing my thoughts, feelings and opinion. It is a way to socialize and connect with different people over the world through the web.
I found blogging or it found me at a time when I was almost caught off from the rest of the world. When my social life was reduced to zero, through it I was able to vent, reconnect and heal. I have met so many people who share the same passion and dream with me and they have helped and encouraged me a lot.
Blogging has helped me to improve my writings, overcome blocks, procrastination and be engaged in something meaningful.
