Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication.
Well, this is my first blog post and I am quite excited. I have been procrastinating on when to start this blog. But like I started my YouTube videos which you can check out here, so I took a deep breath and just give it a go. I didn’t want to start because I wasn’t sure if I was going to have readers who could relate to what I wanted to blog about but I said to myself ” what the heck” I definitely know that if I didn’t start now and didn’t think I’m ever going to.
I am used to doing so many things myself in terms of the design of the blog, domain, etc. But I never knew I would go through this much stress with Web hosting. I have never had to go through the process of hosting because I have to use and it requires a self-hosted account and a domain I just had to.
I decided to try using the same hosting service I use for my natural hair blog but sadly that couldn’t work because of the ban placed on the Naira debit cards (bummer). So I had to result to asking my tweeps on twitter about hosting sites in Nigeria and a few were recommended ( not going to mention names). I registered for the two hosting site which were recommended and I began comparing packages. One was actually a bit cheaper than the other but it didn’t come with a free domain registration while the more expensive one did. But I never actually noticed. My just wanted the cheaper one because common I had budget na!
So anyway I paid for the cheaper not knowing I had to pay extra ( which I never wanted to pay) for a domain. I Wish I had just gone for the other one that was just a little more expensive than the one I picked and I also get a free domain. Sigh!
Anyway after paying for everything else, I expected them to activate my account so I can begin to develop my blog’s theme but NO! It was this period they decided to undergo a server upgrade. I called and emailed this person like a million times! maybe not a million times but I was so pissed I think I lost count. I had to wait about two weeks after I had paid before they could actually upgrade their server. I decided to ask for an extension since they had basically wasted about 2 weeks of my time they declined, mscheeww I was so irritated and honestly I regret choosing them as my service provider. Rubbish!
Let me stop venting jare.
So last Saturday I was supposed to go hear Haneefa Adam talk at this symposium she was to be a guest speaker at but I couldn’t because…UBER decided to be childish.
After getting all dressed up and I realized couldn’t make it, decided to take a few pictures and use them as my blog into. Lol.
Outfit details :
I wore a boyfriend Jean and a simple white shirt with my gorgeous court shoe. I have this shoe for a while now and never worn it because I am mostly indoors except when I go to work. That day was just a perfect day to rock them shoes. I guess it wasn’t a waste of outfit after all.
I spiced it up with a pair of hoop earrings and a necklace and oh yeah! my Daniel Washington wristwatch and my dope dope sunglasses!
Photo Credit: To my amazing little brother. I think I’m gradually bringing out his inner photography skills, thanks to me. lol!
So right now I’m at work so I have to go. I hope to be more consistent with my blogging and I hope you all enjoyed reading this post because there will be more to come. ( In Sha Allah).
Till then, stay happy, stay positive!
