Thursday Tidbits

January 28, 2016

Whoop! Another Thursday is here and you are alive! Jump for joy! no? OK fist pump then.

Let’s go

  1. I really liked this. Ta-Nehisi Coates writes about The winner being the one who keeps asking questions
  2. Oh I really enjoyed this- Cupcakes reclaimed
  3. Fame, blogging, public life… this made me shudder
  4. Laura Mvula’s stunning video for the song Overcome. Here for it- Also still want the perfect black lipstick.
  5. Why are breakups harder for some than others?
  6. Instagram accounts to unfollow in 2016— by posting this, I know some will unfollow me, I fall into many of these categories. But ultimately, I want you to be happy, I release you. LMAO
  7. Monogamy used to be one person for life, now it’s one person at a time. I enjoyed this Ted talk on infidelity immensely.
  8. Yesterday I left church so full, and happy. I want to bottle this feeling. The message? ‘Go’
  9. When I get my nice job, and great apartment, I will have this pizza party– remind me please.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend with people you love

Love always,

    Hmmm, that blogging story is scary. Guess that’s what happens when a blog gets popular and monetized. I’ve seen it with a Nigerian blogger. Monetizing in a way like theirs can truly give the audience that air of “our readership brought you this success”. And then you want to comform to your sponsor and readers’ expectations, till blogging doesn’t feel fun again.
    Let me now explore the rest of the post. You rock 🙂
