ONE YEAR ON BLOGSPOT

So Far So Good...

YIPPIEE!!!! I have survived in the blogspot blogosphere for one year and so far it has been a fun and thrilling journey. At first I started out trying to be all serious and using this as another medium to display my professional journalistic prowess. Trying to bring my work home with me and keep my personal life out of the mix. Who was I trying to impress. Abeg, Abeg that plan did not fly. Why try to outfox Fox. Just because I love the news so much doesn't mean I need to bore people with it. So it goes without saying that I have grown as a blogger. I have found my niche in this blog thing and that is to be myself, which for the most part is funny, unassuming and 'censored' (when it comes to certain matters). I have presented myself and parts of my life to a willing and welcoming audience that has been non judgmental and that has made me more comfortable about blogging. Thanks for that and I hope I have not spoken too soon. The first part of this blog turned out to be about me venting out a lot of my frustrations but the past six months it has really been an outlet for me to access the 'outside world'. Considering that I am now on th west coast and the time difference being a huge barrier, this has been how I update my friends and family in Nigeria on what's going on with me. This has also been gossip central for me, as has the rest of the blog world. I have been 'coding' some gist on here and I am surprised that I am yet to be called out by the parties involved and the parties in the know(neither has my family disowned me for exposing all our secrets). Lord knows I have been expecting to be 'kobaed' and have been preparing my defense strategy but I guess I don't have to employ i t just yet. Hmh...but sha sha let me just go ahead and say thanks for not casting my black butt.
My writing 'on my feet' or should I say 'butt' has improved and my thoughts are written out better these days. However I am not sure if I should take some of the comments seriously because I am not sure if I am that good of a writer to be getting the sorts of extolling emails. But if you guys say so, perhaps I will chennel the energy I use in blogging towards some money making scheme. That is make ya'll go to Amazon and Borders to buy my book. Speaking of which, how about I have already pick out the cover without completing the 3rd chapter. Skewed priorities. Anyways thanks for the love, glad I can entertain you with my boring but some what comical life. Make sure you are senidng this link to everybody you know because when I look for the next job, whatever that may be, I will be using the 'hits-tracker' to gather more zeros citing 'internet clout' and 'online celebrity'. Hmh ...have you people forgotten that I am a proper Igbo girl. Oh well here's to more enjoyable blogging days and topics. It's been real so far. I am off to continue watching Dave Chapelle The Lost Episodes. While I apologise for this moment of self-absorbtion and serendipity, I present to you below a collection of interesting posts that I enjoyed writing, that meant a lot to me or gathered a lot of comments. This is a precurser to the 'Best of According to Adaure List' and a guide for the new readers just joining us in the last quarter . I doubt ya'll have read through every blog. If you have 'You are Hard o'. If your 'Best of According to Adaure' is missing please include it in the comment section. See me really feeling like a star. Oh well the title of the blog is the World According to Adaure isn't it? And in that world there's only one star ya'll and you guessed it...MOI!!!! Lol. I planned to debut the 2nd year with a new template and all that ish but biko that is too much work so for now just manage the old look and new picture till I gather my wits to update.

I don't need to tell u that u are gifted.

U didn't have my favorite topic up in your archives...."Camp horror, escape of the fugitives" that was some funny shit...the first day i stumbled on ur blog and read that, it had me hooked since then. U should put it up, that was a good story.

Ada, I love your blog! I was also a blogger for two years and I shut down my page 6 months ago because I have "blogger's block"! I want to know, how do you keep your blog going? It is always an interesting read. I'm inspired to open up a new blog. You are welcome to be one of my subscribers!

i love your blog

Adaure,
i stumbled across your blog when i typed in my name in yahoo-yes we have the same first name, which i thought was very cool because adaure dosen't seem to be a very common igbo name. Anyways i spent the next 2 hrs. reading your blog-when i should have been doing my school work, but that's another story. i love the fact that you seem to be very much in touch with your nigerian side-a sad lesson i've learned is that many nigerian kids born here don't seem to be very proud of their heritage. . Anyway, keep on with the blogging, you're doing a great job.

Folu said...

Adaure, congratulations and keep up the good work!
