GIVING HONOUR WHEN IT'S DUE.

Hello, my friends, I believe many of you have seen the recent changes in my blog huh? All these changes came about, at the hands of a kind blogger, who took her time to educate and encourage me more on blogging tips, and to be active on face-book. She designed the Fb logo!


She started by telling me that, Nitty-gritty is a brand, that many still knows me by that name, I then, remember, Honey dame said; 'I will always be her Nitty!' And I should get a domain, because my blog, do give out valuable information on, housekeeping, parenting and especially on relocating, so hubby got a domain for me. That was what Phoenix 'J' noticed 2 weeks ago when she clicked on my   old newdawn40.blogspsot and she was redirected to thenitty-gritty.com


The next thing she said, saw me running and hiding under the table, but she pulled me out with her sweet words and convinced me I have so much to say on issues, but to avoid so long a post, I summarized them, so why don't I put it into an e-book! Again, I remember, many have told me in the past, I should write a book, I simply grinned and shyly walked away, because I didn't think, I have what it takes to be a writer. My typos were enough, to discourage anybody from reading sef! She agreed to bear the pain of reading my first draft. And oh boy! Did she make so many corrections! I salute her for not cringing when reading o! And she designed the cover page! Isn't she so talented?

I was really surprised to hear from her for the first time, because, before I deleted my old blog, I was not a regular visitor to her blog, and I have never communicated with her in any form, that is why, I am overwhelmed with this show of love from her, which made me to understand  Abiola's love letter the more.  She said, she is overwhelmed with my thankfulness and, appreciates my appreciation. Ha! She does not know me o! I am the type that can greet 10x for a good deed, and her kindness is a virtue that is not common in a competitive world.

It's said, honour should be given to whom it is due, and be thankful for every good deed done at night, so the doer can perform a bigger one in the morning! Thus, to Jummy, the Good Niaja Girl, I say another big thank you, for everything! And to every giving you gave,  a good measure, will be pressed down, shaken together, and running over you, in Jesus Name. AMEN! E-HUG.
Have a fulfilled week ahead everyone.

Aww..that's so sweet of her. Visited her to say hi and thanks but my comments no gree show.

Jummy, in the event that you read this: You're indeed the 'good' naija girl. Your type no plenty around here..I always feel touched in a way I can't explain when I 'see' 'veterans' like you who are selfless enough to actually take the time to look out for others and provide support even when they're unsolicited.

If no, abeg do quick o. I'm really concerned about the ebola issue with the way it sneaked into Nigeria and America. No one / country is truly free or safe until Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone are free.

Good Naija Girl said...

Thank you for the recognition, New Dawn; I really appreciate it! And please, the thanking is too much, especially when compared to what I actually did!

One thing that is really praiseworthy about you (besides how appreciative you are of small things) is that you are very proactive! You work hard and you get things done! I'm really impressed by your ability to make time to do things, given your busy schedule. I am praying that through your blog or any other venture you decide on, that you find a way to profit financially! So excited to see where you go!
