I would like to thank one of my oldest friends Bukky for giving me this platform to write on my opinions. I remember when we first discussed it, it was just after I had returned from a ‘romantic’ travel, she wanted me to write an article on my Zanzibar experience which I did and after putting that in I suppose she really liked it and we talked about writing twice monthly for her site or so, now I knew deep down I had a lot on my plate and as such couldn’t be so committed to writing that often or according to a schedule.
I did tell her straight up I couldn’t write that often, still I considered it and actually tried, I discovered two things;
1) That I couldn’t just will myself to write, even when I tried to go off and be by myself to be in that mental space then I had a talk with her, even though I wasn’t detailed she assured me I was under no pressure, I could write as I felt and totally do me.
2) I didn’t realize when she said I could write about anything I could actually write about anything, I was having trouble coming to terms with the idea that as this was a site promoting Africa/made in Africa all my writing had to be in line with that.
So rein in tight and get ready to read about a broad spectrum of my interesting take and thoughts on happenings with Africa as a centre stage and beyond.
