My 2nd Welcome message
I have finally been seduced into starting my own blog. After months of reading those that belonged to others, it made sense to start my own. If there are other blog surfers like me, then I should be able to get quite an audience.
As a blog surfer, I have noticed that a lot of 9ja bloggers live abroad. I am firmly in Lagos and have no immediate plan of leaving so I will be giving nostalgic stories about what is going on here in Lagos. Living here gives one an array of ready topics to discuss. You know, now!
If I do not submit anything for a few days, forgive me because that will largely be the fault of PHCN/NEPA for not providing me with the requisite power for my laptop.
If my writing is not coherent, it will be because I drove on pot-holed roads and this disturbed my equilibrium to such an extent that it affected my thinking and consequently my writing.
Typos? Blame that on the fact that water has not run for days and I am trembling from having carried so many buckets of water.
If I seem hurried…, alright, I will stop here and just stop being the typical Nigerian that blames everything on the government and everyone else but myself.
Get me right, I do blame the government for a lot that goes on, but I am also smart enough to realize that somehow, I am also to blame. How? I am a Nigerian that is why. Well, for one thing, I would probably cheat the government in a second I given the opportunity. I don’t mean anything terrible, just withhold my taxes or some’n. Although thinking about it rationally, that may well be because I do not believe that my tax is treated with the respect it deserves.
O.k, so much for a welcome message. It started being about something and then I just branched out and suddenly branched out and became about something else. Just typing as I think. See y’all later.
