Happy 1st ‘Bloggiversary!!!’

Hey everyone,

Thanks for stopping by the blog. I trust you’re doing great! I am too because…

Guess whose 1st anniversary or maybe in my  own words ‘bloggiversary’ it is today? *drumroll*

Tall Girls Are Awesome!!!

Woohoo, my blog is one today!!! I’m super excited. It’s funny how my blog and Ishare the same birth month (PS: I didn’t plan for it to be this way lol). I even feel like a mother who has watched her child grow; from suckling on her breasts to talking, walking and growing teeth too! LOL

So, speech time guys *clears throat*

Wow! Tall Girls Are Awesome’s 1st year was an amazing journey. Blogging has taught me so much about myself, passion, growth, ownership and so much technical knowledge. All of the good times, funny posts, inspiring posts, not-so-good posts and the many challenges have taught me so much. I remember writing my first post in my office a year ago and I’m thinking “how time flies!”

Chronicles of a UNILAG undergraduate III

Hey there,

Thanks for stopping by the blog 🙂 I know that I’ve been AWOL for so long but hey, I’m back! For real I am, lol…with so much to talk about-the good and the bad. I’d start however by sharing the good news with you.

In my last post, I lamented about how stressful school was because I hadn’t secured accommodation on campus which meant me going from home on a daily basis (mehn, it wasn’t funny). Well, now I stay on campus..yay! And honestly, life has just been easier… I also spoke about how much I needed a laptop to be more consistent with blogging and do school work too. I DID GET A LAPTOP! It happened in the most miraculous way as I never even envisaged getting it as a gift, I know it must have been God and I’m so grateful…You see something eh, this taught me a major lesson: JUST BELIEVE. I was so troubled with how I hadn’t posted anything new on the blog in so long, I didn’t realize I have a father full of wonders and voila you’re reading a new post. Is there something you’re so encumbered about? Is there something you’re almost giving up on? Just believe darling!

And the next good news I’m super exited to tell you about is that… we now have a brand logo! Yayyy!!! I’d rather call it a header or better still, picture but my brand manager (you know yourself..lol) put the words ‘brand logo’ in my mouth.

There it is! What do you think about it? Feel free to let me know your thoughts in the comment box 😉 . I considered coming up with this a big project ‘cos I wanted it to be just the way I imagined it and I hope you like it as much as I do *smiles* (I danced when I saw it…haha, that’s how excited I was)

Yet another good news! I got nominated for the Liebster award by the amazing Mfon (Yas! she’s from my state too) You should check out her blog DaintyM . It is in 2 words: Simply beautiful, just in case you find yourself stuck on it! The Liebster Award is a way of encouraging new bloggers.

I call them ‘blogging freshmen’. A post on it is coming up soon where I’d be answering fun questions after which I’d also nominate other bloggers for the award, wait for it 😉 😉
