Marching Forward x Bants
How are you today? Happy new month. I am a bit late on the new month wagon but we are definitely marching forward this month. So I have been irregular with posting here, pardon me. School resumed a couple of weeks back and I am adjusting to the school routine again. Funny enough, March happened to be one of the months with least posts from last year. Let’s hope it turns out different this year. I’ve got gist and been up to a couple of things!
What have I been up to? Yes, this is to bring to your notice that I am officially open for blog consultation and design. Need help setting up your site or blog? I’m at your service. Moving from Blogger to WordPress? Need help setting up an eCommerce website? I can do it. Check out the House of Naturals and Themie’s Blog for sample of my work. You can mail me at email@example.com
The blogger sis Debs of Deb Writes Blog is now a volunteer for Mentally Aware, a non-governmental platform for creating awareness about mental illnesses. Not mental illness in the insanity sense but issues that people go through that affects them mentally. I remember suffering from depression back in 2015 and it wasn’t a funny time. We all need to get help when we aren’t okay and to talk to someone. You can also volunteer to end stigma attached to mental illness in Nigeria. A campaign is going on currently tagged #Ilovemeselfiechallenge which is an avenue to post about things you hated about yourself but you love now. Follow @mentallyawareng
My role model Folu Ajayi started her blog recently and she blogs about lifestyle and art. Trust me, she’s quite the amazing person. You can find her blog here. Also, The Dream shared a post about the realities of dating a blogger on his blog. Best blog post I’ve read today because I can relate to most of them as a blogger *covers face*
There’s so much going on right now on social media right now. Mehn! Those watching Big Brother Naija in the house raise your hands! Kemen is gone. Still finding the cause of his disqualification unbelievable. I mean why did he try to sexually harass Tboss?! My mum said his village people probably are after him. I have seen so many stupid comments on social media regarding this issue. Men really have to learn how to take no as no and not have sex with women without their full consent. One comment I saw even talked about how rape is not a big deal.
Now a little flashback to March last year, I wrote a letter to the future me here and started a fictional series titled Experience to Remember. Canva and VSCO are two important blogging tools; find out why here. I also shared a style post featuring an Ankara inspired t-shirt and two poems here and here.
I really do pray March is a great month for all of us. What have you been up to? Ever used Canva or VSCO before? What was the experience like? What’s your opinion about mental health awareness? Do you think Big Brother was right to disqualify Kemen for his behavior in the house? What do you think about rape? Let’s chat below. The best part of posting here is getting your feedback and comments. What are your thoughts about this post?
