Newbie Bloggers

We all know that there are tons of new naija bloggers everyday, some we know and others we are yet to discover. The theme of this year's naija bloggers award is "Who you be?" In that vain, i would like to introduce to you guys a few newbie bloggers.

First we have Bob-Ij a make-up artist based in Canada

Hello Blogville citizens,
Bob-ij here, representing the Nigerians in Canada
Bastille of Beauty is my impression of myself; I am a prison of talent, prison of ideas, dreams and music. More so, I am a make-up artist who throws caution to the wind and puts my African touch into my creations. Click click!
My blog is an insight in to my drama-filled life and my constantly jumbled mind. Help me sort things out! I will have monthly and maybe bi-monthly post on make-up tips, Do's and DON’Ts which female citizens will find extremely useful, trust me and none of those fancy terms, all in plain English. LOL
I try to be funny here and there but I will never dream of doing stand-up comedy at the expense of being stoned with a shoe!! LOL … Not good enough for that.
Blogville has been an inspiration to me, I can relate to so many posts on an individual level. I’m more impressed with the fact that no one is judged for having an opinion, for doing something wrong, or for a failure. As far as I’m concerned, all Blogville citizens are innocent of any accusations. Anyone who has a problem with that should give me a phone call on 911….lol….

IJ has some beautiful pictures to share with us.

Next we have a naija chef based in the United states. Alhaji's Cuisine specializes in flavorful and colorful intercultural dishes. Trust me, u need to head over to his blog to feast your eyes on his mouthwatering, tantalizing dishes. I'm sure he'll be willing to share the recipes with you guys.

Here's a little sneak peak of what Chef Ola has to offer.

So head on over to Alhaji's cuisine for the whole shebang!

After indulging in all the wonderful dishes Chef Ola has to offer, i'm sure you guys would need help losing some of the excess pounds. African weight loss diva is here to help keep u fit and trim (as long as you follow her advice, it's not magic, you know!) Here's what she has to say.

Hi blogsville,
I am actually new to blogsville. I am A Nigerian, i live in Lagos, a
Doctor. I basically deal with weight loss and fitness, so i also help
people do fitness training and all that.

On the other hand, I am jovial, friendly, love rock music, video games
and romantic stuff.
I am happy joining blogsville. Its an interesting place and everyone
seems so nice, especially FASHINGA!!!!

Hope to see more of blogsville and hope i win an award. You can check
out my blog at

Last but certainly not least is a personal blogger, like a lot of people on blogsville are. Introducing Kemi Penelope.

When I moved in as a resident of the B* World or what you guys call Blogsville, I definitely had a mission (I still do) but I have to say, I am really learning a lot especially from two awesome B* World citizens who have really been an impact in my way of blogging: Rita & Jaycee.

So I'm looking at myself in the mirror and I love what I see…but how do you describe ‘Amazing’…’Wonderful’…’Blessed’ without breaking into a dance? So forgive me if I don’t give a great account of who Kemi is. At least, one thing you guys might know by now is that I am a female blogger. And my blog surely speaks volume of who I am.

Kemi is becoming each week...a blogger who is struggling to be a better person and who knows that she is not perfect. But what makes it easy for me, is the fact that I am never alone in my journey to rediscovery. Ok, enough about the little about me...
What I like & dislike about B* World?

I love the sense of community especially in the Naija is like living the real world only it is cyber. They were right when they wrote that there’s power in the pen...only in this situation, we can say, there’s power in every key typed in the internet.

To be sincere, I don’t really have anything I dislike about the B* World. I believe that life has its good, bad and ugly moments and so does the B* World... But we do have to learn one thing and that is not to take anything too personal.

You can learn more about Kemi Penelope by visiting her blog.

P.S Lets not forget that besides having fun, the purpose of this award is to bring the citizens of blogsville together. Get to know new bloggers, rediscover old(er) bloggers. Make use of the blogsville citizens list and add new people to your blog family. Cheers!
