How much do you think Disney or Electronic Arts pay their writers😏? Like seriously. 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
When is the right time to start telling children about money? Because I'm constantly thinking that I came to the conversation quite late. Like an active participation. 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.
It's been a heavy week, in the best week, with writing on several topics finding light in the Afrobloggers Community. It has honestly been a great prompt and wonderful information has made its way in circulation. Continuing yesterday's thoughts on learning and reading disabilities, I thought I would draw attention to language. Lebogang's post lays … Continue reading Advocacy: Lost in translation
Pick up your pen and paper, its time to relearn our ABCs and 123s. In fact, use a pencil because you might need to erase more often than not. Because new information is always being unearthed. 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
So...if you are all caught up with yesterday's post, you sort of already know where this is heading. 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
I wasn't sure of how to write about the topics I felt strongly about this week. So I am glad I read Miss Nsatu's post to give me a little more direction on how to go about this. As an advocate, I don't have to have gone through the issues that light a fire and … Continue reading Advocacy: Where to begin.
The never ending need for validation! Especially when you don't seem to be getting the recognition you deserve (you know what I'm writing about). Over the past three days, I've mostly enjoyed writing on knowing your why. Because some times this can be a lonely road and I know you usually start out for yourself, … Continue reading Creatives: And the award goes to…
Bringing this one out of the archives for today😅😅. This was my third post on the blog, a whole year and a half ago. But I think it holds some truth for the present. For a while in this season (the faith-beating season from about one post back) I have believed deeply that it is … Continue reading How to finish well
A thousand flaming hot-coals heaped on your head, with your mouth gagged and your stomach twisting to a load of tiny little stabs. And absolutely no respite in sight. That's grim. Maybe it's more like a glitch in your story. You think you are moving forward then once the glitching stops, you find you have … Continue reading What the Wait feels like!
