The more I know, the more I realize how much I don't know. I've been blogging for about three years. The first couple of years I was very inconsistent and I hadn't quite found my voice…my rhythm…my identity. For the last year, I've committed to blogging. As I've written before, it helps me cope.
Blogging has also allowed me to meet some very interesting folks. Some intellectual and serious, others intellectual and crazy (I mean that in a good way) and some just straight crazy. Most have been good people. Then there are the folks you connect with for some unknown reason.
I'm constantly amazed by the way bloggers reach out to help each other and folks that they don't even know. The Ebonics was intentional; I'm trying to make a point. There is knowledge and advice shared and when you think about the fact that folks are continents apart, it's mind-blowing.
I've connected with a sister, Ebele that I've written about previously. She has this whole creative thing going on that surely you've checked out by now. If not, click here.
Anyhoo, after I named her a Rockin' Girl Blogger, she named her five bloggers also. Well in her post, Ebele did her numbering in Igbo (frequently known as Ibo). Igbo is a language spoken in Nigeria. How cool is that? I love languages so I'm sharing it with you. I'm not certain of the pronunciation but I'm sure someone's going to help me with that one also.
ofu - 1 one
ibuo - 2 two
ito - 3 three
ino - 4 four
ise - 5 five
isii – 6 six
