Hey you! Welcome back to my blog!
If this is your first time, it definitely won’t be your last, hopefully😂.
First of all, I’m sorry for being gone for so long, do forgive me. I just find it hard to post when I’m at school, it’s stressful and I’m lazy, some of the time. Now that I’ve settled that, we can move on.
So today, being the 5th of September, is a special day for both of us. Why? Because it’s our anniversary people! To those who are part of the family anyway; if you’re new you’re welcome to the family! 💜
It’s officially been two years since I started blogging. To be honest it doesn’t really seem that long, but I guess it has been, crazy right? There’s been good times, there’s been writer’s blocks or should I say blogger’s blocks? Either way, it’s been an amazing journey so far and I decided to make a post to celebrate with you guys and so I’ll always have this moment to look back on.
As We Cross Another Milestone,
I just want to say how much I appreciate everyone that has been on this journey with me from the start, those that joined later on and even you that just joined the family today, yes I’m acknowledging you too. For sharing my posts, leaving comments and showing actual interest in what I actually do here, I really love you guys so much💜.
Now that that’s off my chest, let the party begin!
Let’s start off the party with a brief Q&A Session which has been long overdue.
Yes, finally another Q&A at last. The first one I did was when? June last year?😂 That’s a pretty long gap if you ask me. So that’s why I decided to do another. Also because I’ve seen new members of our blog family, like Sabrina, Yemi and so many others. I know you all might have had questions in mind to ask so today’s the day some of your questions are answered!
That just made me remember Gaston from Beauty and the Beast lol. When he went to ask Belle for her hand in marriage. Uncle was like, “Today is the day your dreams come true…” only to get rejected and thrown into mud. I never thought he was attractive anyway🌚.
But the beast on the other hand, what a sight to behold🥰! Wasn’t he dreamy?😍😂
Sorry where was I? Oh yeah, making your dreams come true. So let’s dive right into it. I’ve had a few questions that some of you asked from a while ago, so I’ll be answering them today.
But certainly, we can’t let this be boring, now can we? 😏
Off we go then, to Britain. If you do not understand this sort of English, then do not mock me; but be flattered at my bravery. It is rather difficult to find such these days. Are you ready?
1. What inspires you to keep blogging?
Ladies and gentlemen, I blog for it intrigues me. It pleases me to write. I do this for it is a passion. “Blogging is an art of life, it does not matter if you win or lose, rather it is for spirit of the art!”(I’m saying rubbish oh) And alongside, I take pleasure in reading such adoring comments from yourselves. Having knowledge that my writing entertains such amazing persons, I am certainly honored to continue and never stop; if it be the Lord’s will for me of course.
2. What’s your full name?
I believe I already revealed this in my previous post, The One Where It’s My Birthday! You’ll have to go back to Nigeria to read that though, so we best be on our way.
While we wait for those who went to do amebo and find out my full name, let’s have a Nigerian-based question.
3. You know those Nigerian movies where everyone is dressed in wrappers and live in huts with a king and queen? The girls wear a wrapper around their waist like a skirt and one around their chest. The males where one around their waist like a towel. Do those kind of villages exist?
Answer: Dear non-Nigerian follower, they probably still exist😂.
Two more questions left. I hope the amebos have returned already. Now that you’ve known my name, we can continue the party.
4. How did you discover your love for writing?
Answer: I think I’ve always had this hidden love for writing but at a point I was so blind to see it right there. I knew I enjoyed writing long notes in class right from primary school; I even liked when the teacher decided to dictate and not write on the board(weird I know, I think I also enjoy note taking during lecture periods even). And back in my primary school days I started writing short stories actually, just for fun and I liked it. If you want to hear, sorry, read, the full and definitely interesting story of how I got here, you should really check out one of my most-read posts, from little. TO BIG! So yeah, discovering your potential starts from taking notes of the little things we do unconsciously.
5. What’s the story behind your blog name?
Answer: Have a glass of my non-alcoholic wine first🍷.
Now, to answer your question, what makes you think there’s some interesting story to it? To be completely honest, I can’t pinpoint the exact reason I went with the name Girl With A Blog but what I do remember was that there was this show on Nickelodeon called Dog with a Blog which I found totally catchy, I mean it’s a dog, who actually blogs! And I was like if he’s a dog who can blog, then I’m a girl who can blog too. That was pretty much it I guess and now my friends call me that. Don’t you guy’s just get it that its my blog’s name and not mine? Don’t make her jealous, it’s her birthday please😌.
And that’s a wrap, only five questions for today guys, I don’t want to make this party a late-night one.
So grab your glass and let’s toast! If you’ve finished yours already, sorry for you🍷.
On this day, Girl With A Blog is officially two years old and it makes me so happy and proud that I was actually able to do this, because of God, obviously, but also everyone gathered here reading this now. So here’s a toast, to more years, more posts, more members of this amazing family and more milestones ahead.
To Girl With A Blog!🥂
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO GIRL WITH A BLOG!🍾
While we enjoy the last minutes of this party, let’s dance!

And lastly, the post with the highest views is still from little, TO BIG! with about 200+reads! Seems like people really loved that post, if you haven’t read it, do check it out.
