On Hand Writings & The Big Chop

Hey guys, its me again! Remember me? Your best friend?, LOL

A lot has happened since the last time, but before I catch you up, lets do this quick little handwriting tag. Since Mfon @daintyM could not be bothered to tag me, I decided to tag myself. Apparently you’re supposed to write a few things in your handwriting and post it on here, so here goes:

I actually had fun writing this, I don’t remember the last time I actually sat down to put pen to paper and to write something, I am so used to taking notes on my phone. I can only hope my handwriting is legible enough. OK that’s a lie, I wrote my grocery list today, but it was barely legible.

In other news, I haven’t written in so long because I would have bled all over the pages and it might have been a little sad, and maybe hard to decipher. But as always, I have risen above and I am also working on a way to share my struggles and victories with you guys, so that even if it encourages only one person I can rejoice in it.

I cut my hair! So I took the plunge and did the big chop, and I must say it is the most therapeutic thing I ever did, I didn’t think I could and other than the slight twinge of emotion I felt when I saw all my hair on the floor, I haven’t had a single moment of regret and can I just say that feeling the water run down my head everyday in the shower is THE BEST FEELING EVER!!!

So this is it guys, watch this space though, I will post some stuff this weekend and it will be good!

Love,

Adaugo

blogger-recognition-award-c

Hi Guys,

Yet another thing to be thankful for! I know that I am a little behind on accepting this nomination,but I am so so happy to be writing this post today! Many thanks to my new friend Nancy for nominating me, it means a lot to me and I am grateful. OK let’s do this!

Award Rules: Write a post to show your award √

Acknowledge the blogger that nominated you: Thanks Nancy! (link to her blog above) √

Give a brief story about how you started blogging: I have always loved writing but for a number of reasons I was wary of starting my own blog, I was practically bullied into starting it. You can read more about that journey here: once upon a blog

Give two pieces of advice for new bloggers:

  1. Be sure you really want to blog, because it’s a lot of work and consistency is key. Once you start and you develop an audience it is very important to be consistent with your blogging, keep the fire burning. Literally.
  2. Leave it all on the post, when you write from your heart you will be shocked by how much it will resonate with people, you’ll meet like minded readers and make friends. It’s an awesome feeling!

Nominate 15 deserving bloggers: This is the fun part!

  1. My darling  Mfon DainyM (even though she has a ton of awards!)

GIVE AWAY !!!

This is my very first give away and I am super excited. So because my post about getting a letter from my beloved Danielle Steel here was very well received by you guys, it got me feeling generous and I thought I would share the pleasure of reading with my darling followers. so you guys already know I have A LOT of her novels and I am willing to give away ten of them and here’s how it’ll work.

  • You have to be in Lagos to be able to participate
  • You have to be a subscriber to my blog
  • You have to be willing to find time to go pick up the book yourself
  • You have to leave a comment or send me an email; adaugosdiary@yahoo.com telling me why you want one or more of the novels

And that’s it! when I compile the names I get, I will contact you personally and let you know how to go get it.

Peace & Love

Adaugo
