Random Alert: Berry Dakara Blog

Hey friends!

How's your week going? Mine's been pretty good - minus the stupid traffic I got caught in this morning, and the nonsensical fuel scarcity that's reared its ugly head again. About the traffic - I know I'm late if the sun is out and I don't need headlights on anymore before I get to the office. As for the fuel scarcity, it is my firm belief that it's political - the Nigerian government withholds gas when they're trying to distract citizens from issues in the country. Like right now, they're trying to make us forget that there are 200 school girls missing, so they frustrate us into complaining about fuel scarcity. *hiss*

Moving on from the frustration that is Nigeria...

When I started this blog, I thought long and hard about it... what to blog about, what it would look like, how to get followers, what the central theme would be, etc. I actually had a format in mind and the blog was going to be called 'Berry's Five F's' - Food, Faith, Fun, Fashion, Family/Friends - this would have ensured that I blogged at least 5 days a week. It was easy to see very quickly that it wouldn't work for me - for one thing, my friends are boring (I LOVE YOU ALL but you refuse to hang out with me, and some of you don't want your pictures posted, so what's the point???); another thing was this: in my mind I'm a foodie and I love cooking - but in reality, I can eat the same thing everyday for 1 month, and I can't stand cooking anything that takes more than 30 minutes to cook. Let's not even go into fashion cos the whole world knows that style is NOT my thing.

Still though, now that I'm thinking about it, I do wish I could have tried that format for a little bit. I also wish sometimes that I was a beauty blogger - but I really don't want to wear that much makeup. Being a style blogger too was on my mind - but I'm not trendy and I don't have a cohesive style and I don't go shopping that much. I didn't want to be a hair blogger because I'm not that into my hair and I'm not a hair guru.

So, the only thing left to do for me was just blog randomly about my life, my thoughts, my experiences, my dreams, and whatever was in my head. I blog at will and at the snap of a finger - this post literally just came up and initially was supposed to be about my secret blog wishes (A fabulous Style Beauty Inspirational Brainy Fierce-Haired Travel blog), but here we are :)

#ThereIsNoTheEndThisTime #ItIsJustAnImJustSayinPost

Maybe this should have been my 1-Year Bloggerversay post! And I was valiantly trying to write a good post for it o, but nothing came to my mind. Okay, let's pretend it's January 1st so that the post makes a little sense - HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY!!!

  5. Lol!! I was scared for a second - sounded like you might be breaking up with us all :/
    Your five F's are the same as ours but we sure don't post every day - blogging is work, taking photos is not beans, neither is cooking new dishes. I have made batch after batch of cupcake trying to find the right recipe balance but it's been worth it.

    I like that you share all your random details jare.

  8. "...but in reality, I can eat the same thing everyday for 1 month, and I can't stand cooking anything that takes more than 30 minutes to cook." Welcome to my world, lol

    Just a quick prayer: I pray we don't get heart attacks from reading your blog posts in Jesus name. Amen! :)
