    Nice article by True Love. Very humble of Bella to remain semi-anonymous. Bella your blog is great. Your deep fashion and writing interests are a complete contrast to you being an analyst though.

    Would have been great to have had LondonBuki included that article. LB, if you’re reading this, your blog is an inspiration.

    Happy anniversary Bella.

    very nice!!!
    Great job Bella, you’re quite humble, I’d have never guessed you lived in Canada, how do you keep up?! Hopefully you’ll be here and bigger when I need you to promote my idea =)
    TMinx looks different in this picture sha. Maybe it’s cos she’s not showing her pearly whites lol
    Aramide aka Mona….I know that chick! lol
    Adaure…your own na testimony, love how you turned a hobby into a job referral tool…that’s what’s up

    Give it up for the babes of blogsville – yay!! I’m smiling because even the name “Blogsville” has been documented now. I reckon this feature will inspire many more people to take up blogging. Who knows where it will lead? Nigerian bloggers could become a force to be reckoned with.

    You are doing a good job holding Bella’s blog down. The writeups are cool! Blogging is NOT easy, esp. when you have a captive audience. You have to have a passion for what you do to keep it going. Naija blogs I enjoy and visit often are Toni Payne and Linda Ikeji[she is so dedicated posting so many times a day!]. I just discovered T-minx and I like! To all bloggers, keep up the excellent work and Bella, keep it coming. Bon Anniversaire mademoiselle!

    …and yeah, it comes at such a great time – celebrating Bella’s first anniversaty on blogsville…
