Greetings my Gistas! And a hapi new month to you! Can you believe it?
So, it’s been a minute, a long minute actually, since the last post. A rather encouraging jump into the world of blogging, I might add. Heartfelt thanks everyone for the response to ‘HER first kernel’.
Amidst all the positive feedback, was a common theme- ‘What is HER Gist about?’ I have to admit I was initially stumped by the question. I was so sure the tagline did a good job of telling the story, in ten words or less. Then I took a look, then another and another…ok, so ju gorit, nah? Anyway, I got to thinking ‘now that the first kernel has been ‘yin’ed (shelled) so to speak, what’s next?” A proper introduction, of course
So what is HER Gist?
Well, they say write about what you know, right? That’s the idea behind HER Gist. Being a woman, is a dicey journey of ‘snakes and ladders’. Now, add to that a space defined by a culture that is the polar opposite of your own; and you have a sure fire recipe for a dizzying head spin. And that is why this blog was created. In the spirit of support, HER Gist is meant to help the modern Nigerian woman deal with the black and white, and all the greys of HER Life, outside Nigeria.
That being said, what makes the blog special? That’s easy. Unlike most things I can explain that in one word, Humor. Cheesy as it sounds I believe ‘Laughter is the best medicine.’ Things aren’t always quite as bad when you learn to laff at yourself or with others. HER gist taps into that philosophy by tackling serious issues in a lighthearted space. So whether na HER- Business, Love, Family, Spirituality abi na Health?…..we get am for plenty gist for ju.
So, what can you expect:
– Weekly Posts
– Featured contributions from guest writers
– And much more.
Ok, now that we’ve gotten all that out in the cosmos, what is expected of You. Didn’t think you’d get off that easy now, did ya? 🙂
So, other than your enjoyment of course:
– Interaction via feedback is most welcomed
– Your subscription to the page would be AWESOME!
– And best of all, be a good sharer
I hope I have shed more light on what HER gist is. Now I go go LUPITA just won!!!
Wishing you a fruitful month plump with endless possibilities.
