The End

I'm typing this post at the library.

My computer's battery died on me this past week. I find it strange how on my one year anniversary of writing this blog, it suddenly decided to die. Maybe it is a sign that I need to end this blog or take some type of break. I mentioned in an earlier post that I would continue this blog for at least one year. Well the one year is finally come and I feel like I have not had the type of growth emotionally that I hoped this blog would bring.

That said, I have really enjoyed blogging and reading the blogs of others(more so and I will continue). I feel like I know a lot of you(and have friendship with) although I have never met any of you before. I should have another battery in a week so I guess I will have figured out if I want to continue this blog.

As I mentioned a few posts ago I plan on attending nursing school this fall which will amount to the most stressful time in my life thus far. I pray that I do well so I can continue on to work towards a masters degree in nursing.

Maybe I will revive this blog in the fall while attending nursing school so that I can relieve stress.

Speaking of stress, whats with the anonymous people who are blowing up blogville with their BS. I see they have made some bloggers go private, edit comments or simply quit their bloggs. I figure that the people who are responsible should just stop it. If you don't like what you see on a blog you can debate the issue like an adult or simple go to the top right hand corner and "X".

Whoever is responsible is obviously a kid or student because they only behave this way during the break periods of the school year.

Another thing I notice is that I see a lot of this on Naija blogs and very very very little of this on black blogs outside of Naija(sad). Please understand that in other parts of the world people are entitled to free speech so anonymous or UFOs as D.O.G likes to call them, grow up.

For example:

I notice that the above was posted on a number of Nigerian blogs

I would prefer to not have a private blog or comment moderation on this blog if I decide to continue to post. Luckily, I am pretty good at ignoring people since I spend most of my time in my own little world and have a loner type personality, 96% of the time the insulting anonymous comments cease to bother me.

Goodbye,
Love you all

Udi said...

Damn. There are blogs with such nonsense comments on them.

u need to continue blogging. Always nice to read ur blog

Lola Gets said...

I hope you do decide to return to the Blogosphere - Ive always enjoyed reading yours.

As for "anonymous" posters, Naija blogs arent the only ones that get them. I had one fellow posting that way in my series of blogs on swinging. I knew who it was - some jackass who decided to cyberstalk me - still doesnt make it right.

Take care and have a good summer!

The Mistress said...

I hate to hear you're quitting the blog. That sucks ass. I too have had moments where I've wanted to stop...

I think I'll be happier now that my shit is PRIVATE.

Oh and I had a Nigerian SOB leave some dumbass comment on my blog too...guess it's pretty common.

Amadeo said...

I will never give up!

NaijaBloke said...

So u too wants to bite the dust cos of this crazy anonymous people ....

Ok lemme give u a Martin Luther king Speech maybe that will kinda change ya mind ..
"My peeps we need to be strong,cos all they are doing is to try and break us up and as you can see they are winning,don't give in to them,don't let them win.We need to forge on until we get there" hope that inspires u a bit ...LOL

Good luck baby

i love your blog! i'm out of touch with my nigerian-ness but reading this makes me feel better about life as a naija-american. what part of baltimore do you live in? i live in columbia, MD. not too far =)

Blu Jewel said...

i check in and read from time to time. i hope you will use your blog as a stress breaker when you start school. those who comment anonymously are cowards because they lack what it takes to simply post as themselves. never let that stop you from being you and saying what you want in YOUR blog.

best wishes to you.
