About five years ago, July 2007 to be exact, I opened a blogger account and I haven’t looked back since. I was finished with exams and I didn’t know how to properly spend the free time I now had in my hands, so I opened a blogger account. I had two blogs prior to this one, I had to delete them because I was revealing things about myself that I didn’t want the world, which is ironic considering how much I shared with the online community during the first year of this blog, but I digress. In September 2007 I created this blog and it was one of the best things I ever did. I have met (albeit, not in real life) some of the most wonderful people and have grown as a human being because of it.
Almost five years has passed and a lot of things have changed. I have grown older and wiser and I am not as comfortable with sharing as I once was. This is a personal blog and without the ability to share my personal life with an indifferent internet, I find myself struggling to write any post. Hell, 80% of the post I’ve dropped here since 2011 have been lame. So I decided to discontinue this blog. It has been a fun ride and I want to thank each and everyone of you for taking the time to read, comment and share my blog posts. Special thanks to everyone who was there from the genesis, those who were with me when this blog went from obscurity to blowing up (mid 2008 to early 2009 when this blog used to get 500 hits per day) and sticking with me when google’s algorithms changed and I no longer had that search engine love (late 2009 when this blog went from 500 hits per day, to a modest 50, obscurity FTW!). Extra Special thanks to the following people: Dr. Laura for being one of my earliest readers and the smartest person I know (and still be humble about it lol), Lola gets for being one of my earliest commenters and being awesome, The late UBM, for believing in me when I didn’t, Rest in Peace and Goodenough Mashego, for being an inspiration.
Peace and blessings to all of you.
