Happy Blog-Versary to The Talkaholic


I cannot believe that it has been 4 years already. When I started this blog 4 years ago, I did not know how far the blog was going to take me. Some people ask me why am I so excited over a blog turning 4. I really don't blame them as they would not have an idea of how God has used this blog to bless me.

I didn't start this blog because I wanted to make money. I didn't start it because I mistook it for another Hi5 or Myspace account. I didn't start it to boost my popularity status. I started it because I wanted to write. I needed to write. I was inspired on a daily and I needed to share my thoughts with anyone who cared to read. In 2007, I blogged 10 times that year and it didn't really matter that no one was reading my posts. I just knew I was growing, someway, somehow.

Its 2011 now and I have been so inspired. In April 2009, I started my second story blog, Kiss and Tell. In May 2009, Yada was born. In January 2010, I added two blogs to my belt; Anani Speaks and The Eden Project. And now all of them are doing good in their own way.

It has not been easy, but whenever  I take time out to write an article or a poem. Or whenever I think about Yada's future (which is everyday by the way) I realize that God is not through with me yet. The Talkaholic is not just a random blog. Every idea or concept I have been able to come up with since 2007 has found its root in this blog one way or the other. I am so excited and joyful that even now, God continues to inspire me daily and that the best for The Talkaholic, Yada and all my other projects is yet to come. That alone is motivation enough.

With this been said, I will like to thank the following people for their suppport throughout the years

To my sister, Mimi aka Wise Sage: Even when I had no followers you kept sharing my blog amongst all your friends. You were proud of me even before anyone knew who I was. I love you plenty.
