Fashion

Fotofashion9jawww.fotofashion9ja.com –  Foto Fashion Naija is run buy a truly gifted fashion Photographer named Tayo. He took the pictures you see of me on stage(my promo pictures). When he photographs me, I get so excited to see the end result because I know it will somehow capture my essence. Well, he has a blog dedicated to the fashion industry, as in this is where you will find all the hot models, their profiles, their stats and pictures and a lot of original content. Plus you can see a lot of his work on there. Totally awesome stuff. ……….. continue for more..

Ono Bellowww.onobello.com – The reason I like her blog is the focus. She obviously has a passion for fashion. My favorite part of her blog is how she always finds the two celebrities wearing the same outfit. Always interesting to see how two different personalities and body types would interpret the same outfit. She does divert a bit to other news but the reason I visit is for the fashion.

House of Maliqhttp://houseofmaliq.blogspot.com – It loads pretty slow on my iE so you may wanna try google chrome browser to view it. If  I were to have an online fashion magazine, the covers and photo shoots is close to what it would look like.   They also have a lot of “Get the Look” for those who are or aren’t so fashion savvy.  If you are like me that is as casual and “I no send” as can be, their get the look may be a good place for you to start getting style conscious.

 

Life Experiences or Short Stories

Sketches of my Thoughtshttp://theperegrineblog.wordpress.com – I recently stumbled on this blog by chance and I am glad I did. It is owned by a lady named Nonye Chidolue. She hasn’t updated in a while but I’m sure with a little encouragement she will because she is good (Hopefully). I absolutely love her writing style.  She writes about herself and also writes different interesting short stories.  I know we are approaching the IQ dropping Era, where people don’t like to read, but if you enjoy a good read, this is a blog you should bookmark (providing she updates regularly).  Would love to see a lot more of these types of blogs  so if you know any please do recommend.

Weddings

BellaNaijawww.bellanaija.com – Well, I doubt Uche’s blog needs any introduction but yeah. I categorized it under weddings because it is probably the biggest blog dedicated to Nigerian Weddings. I would have loved to see an entire website dedicated to just weddings like bellanaijaweddings dot com or something. I love seeing  Traditional weddings, what Nigerian Event planners are doing in terms of creativity, decor etc. I’m a hopeless romantic so hey, you never know the wonderful idea one can get for a traditional wedding.  Via bella naija weddings, I have penned down some names of wedding planners that I would recommend to myself . *wink* *wink*. shhhhhh!

Entrepreneurship

Spread Media NG – www.spreadmediang.com – They are dedicated to profiling Nigerian Entrepreneurs. Personally I think we need more blogs like this to encourage the youth. Its also good to encourage these entrepreneurs because doing business is not easy.  Also you can visit to see maybe you can stumble on ideas.  Hey, the sky is big enough for many birds to fly.

Entertainment

Entertaining Africawww.entertainingafrica.com – While I wont classify it as a blog, more of an entertainment portal. It had to make the list because I am partial. hahaha. I am part owner and the direction we are taking it is basically your number one stop for Entertainment in Africa. You can watch recommended movies, music videos, TV shows, read Celebrity Profiles, News and once we have our next meeting and conclude on 2014’s direction we will most likely include music and movie reviews etc. Anyways its worth a visit, not because I said so, but because the vision is a good one.  Entertaining Africa is looking for volunteer entertainment writers, though I am not in charge of that aspect of things, if you have interest, send an email and someone will holla back at you.

Music

www.tooxclusive.com  / www.jaguda.com  / www.mp3bullet.com – ok the music blogs are plenty but generally speaking Ill check these for new music.

 

While I am not really a big web surfer I do work a lot online when I have research work to do so during my break, I can be seen reading interesting material. If you know any interesting blogs, most especially those that share their life’s experiences, please do share and I will be more than happy to include them in the list (after perusing of course)

Well that’s it yall.. .. Back to work for me.. still writing my book and recording… ahooooo! ees not easy! lol..

  6. nice list you have here. I noticed you did not list any gossip blog. They all post the same rubbish and lack content. I like the business one as I am looking to start up a business. I am a graduate and still on the job market so I need something to keep me busy and still bring money to the pocket.
