On joining the online community

I’ve always caught myself talking to no one in particular, just me, myself and I about different issues dat I had just laid my mind upon.  So many times I have talked to the mirror,  shared the Word with myself,  motivated the bathroom walls and shower or even the cooker and pots in the kitchen. I never knew when this would ever stop as it was becoming a part of me.  I really needed people to share these thoughts with but it seems like those around have enough on their plates already and would not want to be bugged by the musings of a young adult.

Life always has a way of bringing closer to you things that dominate your thoughts.  That’s how life did it for me.  A friend sent me a link on whatsapp to check out her blog.  I did and it was quite cool.  I hooked up on other blogs through her blogs and I kept hooking up until I finally got a blogger whom I’ll consider as my blog mentor😉. I suscribed to her blog and kept reading until one day it clicked in my head- Hey,  this is what I have been looking for.  This is exactly what I need.  I’ll blog. Yes, I will.  And that was it.  I decided to get the name of the blog and what it’s going to be about.  I had so read from my blog mentor that I had no other suggestions as to how the blog would be except to adopt her style and spice it up my way.

The whole imagination about the blog was ready but I badly needed a new device to start as I didn’t want to start with my then mobile phone that has a lot of issues plus I was tired of using it. It was stolen and I thought that when I got a new and better phone,  I’ll kick off blogging.  I did get a new phone but not a better one as not all that is new is better.  Four months later and the new but worse phone crashed and I was like phew…  at last.  This time, I resolved that I was not going to settle for anything less than better all in the name of new. But mehn… cash was needed.  Thank God for big brother that came to the rescue.  God just used him to bless me with this new and better device.

So I was thinking,  WORDPRESS,  HERE I COME. Okay I got the WordPress app and I’m creating the account when WordPress was telling me ‘invalid username’and I’m like ‘invalid Kwa.  Who told them that it’s invalid.  Are they in my mind? ‘ I changed the username and they told me it was already in use.  I changed again and they finally accepted this one PRICELESS CREATURES. The journey wasn’t easy at all. Thank God I’m finally here.  So no more motivating the bathrooms,  kitchen and pots or talking to the mirror.  And even if I do, I’ll be glad to still share those thoughts again with as many that click into my world.
