Please share and share alike. Thank you very much.

‘Let all that you do, be done in love.’ 1 Cor 16:14

Gradmama Have you been to see her? If you’ve not I think you really should. She is my staunch supporter and such a warm person. You will enjoy her wit and encouragement. Trust me.

Pancake Bunnykins, a sweet soul just as her name implies. She has remained a supportive friend over these months in blogland.

Traveling Rock hopper despite all the pit stops made hopping rocks, she always pops in to say hello and I enjoy her photos from around the World.

Cindy‘s photos are so captivating and keeps me staring at them.

Van I totally enjoy her fresh outlook at topics. Her ponderings also makes me ponder and I always leave her blog feeling good.

Amanpan is an awesome and friendly blogger. Always supportive of her friends and I tell you, you will enjoy her brews and chatter 🙂

Deb In my mind, I call her bright and cheerful Deb. She always has an inspiring and kind word to offer and I have quite enjoyed interacting with her.

Simply me, when I count those who are always there to add their sunshine, I count you. Thank you for all your support.

Ruth, there is just something about Ruth that makes me know that I would thoroughly enjoy sitting and sipping cocoa while listening to her. I think it’s the way she uses words.

Pamela warm, open, supportive and down-to-earth. A quintessential romance writer, I have enjoyed connecting with Pamela right from the beginning and her support means a whole lot.

Bisi my Naija sister with a passion for feminine matters. Never far from reaching out her hand to say well done and chip in a word of encouragement. Thank you my dear. ‘Dalu, Eku ise

Walking this path, I have been so blessed to have you all by my side. Thank you very much.’

For today’s features, I am showing some love to the bloggers listed below:

‘Be sure the one’s you love know how much they mean to you. Don’t wait until it’s too late to say something.’

Sarah found me on Facebook and followed me to my blogging abode. She has been one very supportive blogging neighbour of mine, even in classes. We always hang out during recess and natter a bit. I appreciate Sarah’s support and her can-do spirit inspires me totally.

Beth There is nothing as lovely as a lady with a beautiful sense of humour and humanity. You need to hang out with Nutsrok and your ribs will crack from laughter. I also enjoy reading her sage advise to people who write in with perplexing issues on her agony aunt’s page.

Leannenz forays, photos, volunteering and views inspire me.

Mandibelle‘s sense of community can be seen in so many places including mine. I see her little footprints on other people’s blogs and her supportive nature is totally awesome. Thank you Mandi.

Simply me writes as her name reads. I enjoy her fresh perspectives to stories with the shades of humanity painted inside.

Lynz real cooking, mama Lynz is a Hercules of a woman. Admirable, gentle and wonderful. I have asked her to adopt me 🙂

Nena, a gentle spirited lady whose words inspire me to be better.

Nedoux my Ibo sister in the virtual World. My next trip to Nigeria, will find me knocking on her door. Her write ups crack me up, make me hanker for home and just delightful.

Folake another Nigerian blogger sister that is passionate about her World. I am happy that we met.

Kay‘s words are always, always enlightening for me.

GChan‘s tenacity with her translations, her candid freshness with her words always makes me look out for her.

La Duchesse Derat, yes you can say that I am biased about things French and you are right. Her name first struck me, then the fact that she is bilingual drew me in and like the say, the rest is history. Step into her World for light-hearted chats.

Bernadette makes me think of strong women always and her posts inspire me to aim for greater heights.

Walking this path, I have been so blessed to have you all by my side. Thank you very much.’

Turning Up The Heat…What I got up to in January #2

In respect of blogging matters, networking, interacting and connecting is key.

Just like is said in real estate, that location is key, in blogging, after your content, mingling with others and pushing your buttons is your trump card, which cannot be repeated enough.

It’s always bemusing to see some people plunk their butts in a chair, write a good post, stick it out there and go off to Timbuktu.

Naturally, we humans respond to stimuli of association, thus, any blogger who wants to grow has to get past their shyness and get more friendly and others will respond. As you Work Hard, Also Play Hard.

Well, that said, I turned up my own blogging heat just a notch higher by pushing myself to engage in a few more challenges.

Yes indeed! It’s called a challenge because it’s meant to push you beyond our comfort boundaries of your cosy armchair and it’s doing that to me.

I got involved in 3 different challenges + the 2 that I already do.

They are Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Prompt ChallengeThe great big book of lists, Streams of consciousness, Flash fiction for aspiring writers and Colline’s gratitude or Maria’s gratitude challenges.

The good thing is that there is something to suit different taste and for me, it leaves no time for me to feel bored or lazy about writing.

So, what are you waiting for? Search around and you will find something that interests you.

I even started two of my own challenges as well, details can be found at the top of my blog.

Talking about playing hard and networking, please come to my party. Here is your invitation in this link.

Thank you for listening and kind regards.
