FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Should bloggers seek themselves out? I'm not talking about those who've found love in each other's arms (I know t'ings are happening even if you're all keeping mum) but friendly types now. I'm saying "should laspapi have a show and expect all the bloggers (and regular commentators) in the house to salute one of theirs at the end of it?"
Should I go to the USA and expect to meet with Nilla, Jola and Omosewa because we get on well or attend a show biz jam in England and shout out the vixen's name when she comes in? Should I see Bella Naija, Mona or Noni Moss when on holiday and invite them to a pub or do we keep our distance?
Is anonymity preferable or should we the lift the veil if given the chance? I'm a firm believer in veil-lifting and gradually this community is being welded together. Some people will advance in certain areas simply because they know others. It's the 'old school' thing and like everywhere people congregate, the planet blog is no exception.
But there are some who would keep their identities to themselves, at least for the while, separating day to day lives from the blogscape. Omohemi and 36 inches made me think about it, because they came to my show and after, walked on by. Its everyone's prerogative, really, whether you want to be seen or not.
The question is, "To lift or not to lift"
ps. for those who might not know, molara wood led me to blogging.
pps. 36 inches- I would mentally have measured those legs o, and if they had been an inch shorter than you claim, announced it over the p.a. system.
ppps. omohemi, don't review another play if you don't say hello
pppps. I'm glad I know you all, revealed and otherwise. You've made my world a more colourful place.
