Award time......

This year is off to a very promising start. So i just received this cute (i love butterflies and i love pink) award from Oyin. In my quest to discover new blogs, i stumbled on hers recently and she deemed it fit to pass this award to me.

Ha! Eat ur hearts our blogville........................ I kid, i kid!

The award states "This blog invests and believes in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind of bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers!

Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

I really like this award because of what it's about. When i first started blogging in 2007, for the longest time, i didn't allow comments cos i wasn't trying to meet anybody. I just wanted a place to unload my troubled thoughts. Now, it's different. I don't mind meeting people on here. A couple of you guys are my friends on facebook, and the very lovely miss GNG took the time and effort to call me one time when i was having some issues and needed someone to talk to. What could be sweeter than that? She's awesome.

You guys see the right side of this blog...... look! It has my email address. Feel free to use it if u have questions or what not. I'm always happy to receive emails, now replying is another thing. Just joking. All you pre-meds out there, naija or otherwise, feel free to email me. Bumight was very helpful and encouraging when i was going through that process, so i definitely want to extend the favor to anyone else i can.

Do u guys remember this award? I said i was going pass it on, and i never did. Well....... it's a new year. I guess (as hard as it is for me), i'm going to stop being so selfish and pass this award along. If you hear ur name, come to the front of the class, stretch out ur hands. Six strokes of the cane, cos you all have been naughty.

  1. Good naija girl
  2. Bumight
  3. Solomonsydelle
  4. Temite
  5. Crase.... i mean, Vera
  6. Toluwa
  7. Invisible
  8. Standtall
  9. Mizchif
  10. Geisha
I know she said 8 but i did 10 cos i can. These people, in one way or the other have shown that they deserve this award (i mean, strokes of the cane), so it wasn't a random pick. It was very well thought out. Alright guys, pass it on.

On to other related business. You all know award season is about to start. The Grammys, Emmy, Golden globes, Razzies or what have you. I'm not exactly sure cos i never watch these things but i remember (vaguely) that it's usually at the beginning of the year. I think we need to do another Nigerian Bloggers Award thingy. Taureanminx and Azuka came together and had one in 2006. Vera talked about it here. There's a lot more new nigerian bloggers on the scene. I wasn't even a blogger when the first one was held. I think it's going to be a lot of fun. Picture blogville idol 08. Besides i think it will help wake up all u lazy ass bloggers who have refused to update. ABBIE..........!!!!!! UPDATE!!!!!!

So who's up for it? I most definitely would love to be a part of it, but since i haven't done it before i have no illusions i can even begin to do it by myself. We need other interested parties who can make this thing fun and maybe put some life into blogville, help us come together, discover new blogs, embrace new bloggers and all that good stuff. Thoughts, comments, suggestions............ Leave it in the comment section, email me (, whatever. Let's make this happen.


  1. yay! another award.
    I should do a post to pass on all the awards I've gotten :)

  2. woohoo!

    Thanks for the award. Much appreciated.

    I am so glad you raise dthe prospect of a naija bloggers award. Truth is, there are so many incredible bloggers, some recognition/shine would be good, but would also encourage others to keep blogging and/or blog better, even.

    BTW, you got a special mention in my post which is up right now, so JUMP!

  9. I have met such wonderful people on blogville. Maybe the prevalant anonimity makes us more accepting and more objective in our judgement of people, maybe we are just truly wonderful people. Whatever it is, I'm glad I am a blogger and I am glad you are too.

  10. Thanks for the honour, stingarama! You're a great gal and it's been awesome getting to know you.

    Having a Nigerian Blogger Awards would be great! We need some good planning though to make sure it goes off smoothly. It actually sounds like a ton of fun (because I loooove organizing things) so I'm pretty sure I'd be willing to soon would you want to put this on?

    (lol I'll hold off on emailing you sha...we'll see how my own plans for my blog anniversary this week pan out before I commit to helping something much larger in scale)
