Should hand it to Afrobloggers - these topics have been properly varied. Shoved me a little out my comfort zone and got me learning enough things. So this is obviously Culture and Fashion Week and at first I thought I was boxed in by one perspective but the more I sat with it, the more … Continue reading Culture and Fashion Week: the trendsetter and the sheep
About me 😌. If WordPress is counting right, this should be my 100th post. It's a little unbelievable that I have shown up here about 100 times. It's true some of those have been reposts (if that's how WordPress counts) but I thought I could share a little about me. I have seen this trend … Continue reading 100th Blog Post – Random facts…

Even though I feel like these are two companies I could work for for free (don't quote me on that - money is important!) Writing for those companies would be a dream. I am easily a lover of animations and video … Continue reading Biz and Tech Week : Landing the dream job

Because I don't think you can make it beyond five years with no idea of money and how well it smooths life over. And at this age, it's … Continue reading Biz and Tech Week: Conversations I should have had.

I mean you probably lived most of your life thinking watermelons are red or pinkish, only to find that … Continue reading Advocacy: The space to unlearn and relearn
There are many facets to the issue of infertility (yep, still here). Meanwhile the Afrobloggers community is getting bold and loud about the issues so dear to their hearts. I hope you have read some as we get into day 7. But I figured I would close it out with a male perspective. If fertility … Continue reading Advocacy: Because Pain is not a respector of persons… Or sexes

I want to give perspective to what I'm trying to put across so thought I would share a blogpost from someone walking through it and give you a glimpse into their everyday reality. The excerpt you are … Continue reading Advocacy: What they wish you knew
