StandTall presents some blogs she finds interesting.
Blogosphere has provided a great opportunity for all of us to bring to the table different views, ideas, projects or passion. It is a wonderful thing to get here and see different bloggers talking about what they are passionate about. What they find entertaining, the music they find interesting, the change they wish to see, the fun they want to transfer to others, the problems they want resolved…
Blogging has blessed me in so many ways; it has helped me discover talents, change makers, and it also helped me to be updated on what is going on around the world. Here, I present some of the bloggers I regularly read.
Sokari is a publisher at Black Looks. A visit to her blogs clearly tells you that she is an activist and she is good at what she does. She is a human right advocate who believes that the rights of LGBT, children and women should be respected and promoted. She relentlessly talks about the need for African development with a strong focus on Nigeria.
Naijablog is one informative blog I like to visit. It shows the confidence of a write who knows, and has a lot to say, about what is going on in Nigeria. There is always up to date information about political situations in Nigeria, Art and Culture, event promotion and any other contemporary issues.
Vera Ezimora, who recently started a “talk radio”, is a lady whose work I admire. She talks about her personal life; she brings to the table her day to day experience with a not so serious but dramatic tone. She is a darling of a lot of bloggers with nothing less than 50 comments per post. This is a lady who can turn tragedy to comedy in a way that it will not lose it true meaning but you wont feel so bad reading it. She is gifted, she is truly Nigerian and she is someone whose work I am proud of.
Solomonsydelle runs 2 blogs, one focuses on her family life as a mother of 3 and she uses the blog to seek advice for people that are in one fix or the other. She calls the advice column “Talk To The Easier Crew- TTTEC” . Her second blog NigerianCuriosity focuses on development issues mostly from a Nigerian perspective. She brings updates on political issues in Nigeria.
Sugarbelly is an entrepreneur. she owns a T-shirt lines and her blog talks about different issues that might be considered controversial but very relevant. She defends Nigeria where necessary, she critics where necessary and she is not afraid to speak her mind. I love the confidence of this blogger and her bold ways.
Linda Ikeji’s blog just like Bella Naija’s is a total package. You find undiluted and detailed information on entertainment, fashion and other contemporary issues on her blog. I often wonder if she lives on the internet as I can’t beat the rate at which she gathers information and shares it.
Freeflowingflorida [FFF] started another blog this year. The focus of her new blog is to invite contributors that can share their life experience with others. Different stories have being told by pregnant women. You will be struck by what it feels like to have a new life growing inside you, the pain, the joy and all. I love this initiative of hers. With time as I believe, there will be more personal experiences other than that of pregnancy to be shared on her new blog.
What fascinate me about Ore’s blog is the dynamic way she blends art, natural hair, feminism with the experience of moving back to Nigeria. It is also interesting to read her tips and curiosity about natural hair.
Ms. Catwalq is a film critic and producer. She often does a review of movies in one of her 2 blogs, discovering new films to get down with or the ones not to waste time with, makes visiting her blog interesting. She was one of the fiction writers at 14thandserenity
What makes these blogs a beautiful collection is the fact that their focuses vary. It definitely helps to have a variety to what one reads.
