Blogsville Initiatives

If something must be said about Nigerian bloggers, it has got be that we are a group of smart, funny, creative, intellectual writers, amongst other great attributes. How do I know? Well lets take a look at some of the ideas that we have come up with.

The first Naija Bloggers Award was initiated by Taurean minx in 2006. She was the first to come up with the idea and actually do something about it. Even though it took 3 more years for us to have another one, we hope that this becomes a yearly affair as it is a great avenue to bring naija bloggers together. Kudos to Tminx for being a poineer.

Blogsville Idol 2007 and 2008 was brought to blogsville by Miss Opeke and Pink Satin. Do these ladies know how to put on a show or what?!. The highly esteemed Pinkpeke productions are a force to be reckoned with. They know how to cause a stir in Blogsville just when things are starting to get lukewarm. When it comes to singing, we definitely have a variety of voices, from good to very funny! Note that I did not say “bad". Some of the voices heard on blogsville idol were funny! Omo Ibadan especially contested to make people laugh because his choice of songs and the way he chose to sing them were just plain funny. Others contested just to be heard in a different way. The whole event just went on to prove how much of a family Nigerian bloggers are. We most definitely are looking forward to Blogsville Idol 2009, and we are sure the ladies (Pinkpeke) are going to bring it! as they usually do.

Blogsville is filled with a lot of creative people who love to write. 14th and Serenity took blogsville by storm. Atutupoyoyo, Allied, Boorish male, Carlang, Catwalq, Jaja, Kiibati, Naapali, Overwhelmed naija babe, Rayo, Solomon Sydelle, UK naija, and Waffarian all came together to put up a show stopping series. The collaboration was beautiful to say the least, thanks to Catwalq who initiated the series. If you missed it, now's your chance to stop by 14th and serenity and get in the loop.

Then there was the call for entries from Bloggers for The bloggers book by Laspapi. I'm not sure what came of that initiative but it is a noteworthy effort that needs to be applauded.

We all heard about the arrest of Jonathan Elendu in Nigeria. Blogsville got super riled up at that time. Leading the crusade for his release was Nigerian Curiousity by Solomonsydelle with the Free Jonathan Elendu campaign. She was joined on that campaign by other bloggers. This is a little example that shows that we don't play in blogsville.

We would like to use this opportunity to thank all these wonderful and creative bloggers. We appreciate the time and effort you guys put in your various projects. I'm sure there will be a lot more initiatives by other members of blogsville in the future. This place is filled with a lot of talented people. Let's keep up the good work.

Reminder: Voting for Category B ends tomorrow. You have the whole day, Tuesday March 24th to vote. Thanks.

Sting and co,

Well done for all your hard work. I am in the process of launching another initiative. An email has gone round, but I would hold forth till the awards are over.

I know that with a group of talented bloggers we can certainly change the perception of Nigeria.

As bloggers we would unite to add value to Nigeria's image.....

taKia and God bless

I believe I would not be exaggerating if I said Naija bloggers are the most brilliant and intellectual people. We are a family. Here, you come across diverse kinds of people with a lot to offer. These initiatives and many more not mentioned and pending go a long way to show that blogging is no joke. I foresee a future where bloggers would with their writings, affect every aspect of life in the world we live in. I am indeed proud to be a Naija blogger.

What a great entry, honouring the collaborative work of blogville's finest writers. I think the awards have served to introduce us all to bloggers we had never heard of but whose writings we absolutely love. The sense of community has only been strengthened!

Dear Reader,
My name is Mr. OGBONNAYA CHRISTIAN, just like every single person in Nigeria I too have purchased several money making information e-books, videos and attended a lot of seminars! and yet I couldn't make a dime online.

Until I discovered a simple [but powerful] system and implemented it and from July to December 2009, this crazy money pumping system was bringing in an average of $2,000 every single month such that by the end of the year I had done close to $10,000 online.
All through that period, I never revealed my simple money making system to anyone not even at a fee and why would I do that when I was already earning enough. But after some serious consideration I have decided to reveal the EXACT strategy that i used to earn over $2,000 working just 2hrs a day online.
It Is So Simple, It Is Great

"Watch Me As I Set Up A Complete Online Business For You In Less Than 72hrs Plus A Blueprint On How To Earn At Least $2,000 From In Less Than 60 Days...Guaranteed"
If you have been struggling to make a living online, it is simply because you have been buying e-books, reports attending seminars. There is nothing wrong with that, but ever since I discovered that the easiest way for someone to make a living online, is for you to actually him help build an online business while he just do a few things and make money online, I have in the past 2 months helped over 90 people make money online!

This system is so simple I am close to earning $8,000 this month, You don't have to believe my word, when you read my report you will. I have decided for the first time ever to publicly reveal my secret to a few Nigerian's after all life is all about giving.

I guess I have been away from blogsville for quite sometime now. The awards must have taken place already. Well until two weeks ago, I had not update my blog now for close to a year so would most likely not get nominated. In anycase my blog is up again and will be updated from time to time so feel free to stop by and leave ur comments.
