For many of us Nigerians, the year 2020 comprised only four months: January, Pandemic, Violence, and December. Some people argue that January was the only good month we had last year, and how could I not agree? January was the month we got Bad Boys for Life. It was the month we narrowly averted what… Continue reading New Year, Old Me
‘Would You Rather’ Weekly Series — Episode #4
The theme for this week's episode was inspired by the conversations I had yesterday with some writers on Twitter. As a result, today's questions may not be as fun as the ones I've asked in past episodes. Still, I encourage you to answer them with as much enthusiasm as you've answered my past questions. It… Continue reading ‘Would You Rather’ Weekly Series — Episode #4
‘Would You Rather’ Weekly Series — Episode #3
It's been exactly three weeks since I announced my starting the Would You Rather blog series, and we've had two successful episodes since then. Admittedly, we should have had three episodes, but I was confronted with certain unforeseen challenges last week that disrupted my blogging life. While I haven't dealt with these challenges, I couldn't… Continue reading ‘Would You Rather’ Weekly Series — Episode #3
Why Bloggers Should TOTALLY Encourage Hypocrisy
As with most of life's problems, the issue of low readership can be solved with a simple display of dishonesty. Being the avid reader that I am, I happen to follow a lot of blogs.

‘Would You Rather’ Weekly Series — Episode #2
Welcome to yet another episode of the ‘Would You Rather’ blog series. I'd like to think of last week's episode as a huge success, even though some non-bloggers messaged me on Facebook that they couldn't quite relate to the questions I asked. I'll admit that last week's questions were more related to blogging than to… Continue reading ‘Would You Rather’ Weekly Series — Episode #2
Introducing — *Drumroll* — the “Would You Rather?” Blog Series
Of all the games I play on social media, I love playing “Would You Rather” the most. Not only is this game fun, but it's also a great way to learn more about people and their preferences — which is why I've decided to make it a blog series, at least until I run out… Continue reading Introducing — *Drumroll* — the “Would You Rather?” Blog Series
How I Developed My Written Vocabulary
When I glance over my blog posts and other types of content I've written during the past six years, I can't help but marvel at how much my vocabulary has improved with time. Like every writer, I once struggled to write coherently. And it was frustrating because each time I had an idea I badly… Continue reading How I Developed My Written Vocabulary
Let’s Connect on Twitter!
My new Twitter account reminds me of a Spiderman action figure someone got me when I was a kid. I loved the toy so much that I went virtually everywhere with it. I loved it not just because it was a rare find at that time, but also because it was a replacement for another… Continue reading Let’s Connect on Twitter!

2020: Redemption Season
I could start by making excuses for my long absence and for the commitments that I made to my readers but failed to fulfill. I might even begin with a review of last year's many challenges and how I reacted in the face of every one of them. Then again, I could start by apologising… Continue reading 2020: Redemption Season

Celebrating a Milestone
I know you're used to me writing about blogging, writing, and productivity, but today's post is going to be a bit different from my other posts. Today's post is a personal post: it's about me. (Don't worry, I'm not about to launch into a long, boring composition about myself or my favourite colour.) Sooo last… Continue reading Celebrating a Milestone
