I’ll be on Vera’s radio show this Saturday!
This Saturday I will be guest hosting with Caramel D on Verastically Speakin’. The topic is Big Size = Big Dating Problem? I don’t know exactly what I’ll be saying but I will try to make it interesting. If there’s anything related to that topic that you want to share or that you think needs to be discussed, please let me know in the comments and I’ll see what I can do.
My general stance is that bigger people (by which I mean overweight or obese folks) have a harder time dating. However, I don’t think society and its focus on slim/muscular people being the standard of beauty is 100% to blame (only 95%): some overweight or obese people (*ahemGNGahem*) are not completely comfortable in their skin and despite their best efforts this dissatisfaction is often more visible than they are aware, meaning that they don’t come across as confident people. We all know that confidence is sexy and a girl or guy who’s busy with their body issues is not always a fun person to be around.
I’m sure the discussion will be very interesting, especially since some people have very strong words for overweight/obese people, stereotypical things like thinking they must be fat people are ugly, lazy, slobs.
Join us at 10am EST on March 6 and hear what we have to say!
The 2010 Nigerian Blog Awards are coming!
The 2010 Nigerian Blog Awards are coming. We have a website that’s non-functional (I’m no Seye Kuyinu when it comes to web design) and a twitter account. Please follow us so you’ll be first to know when the fun starts.
If you have no idea what the Nigerian Blog Awards are, please visit the 2009 Naija Bloggers Award site that sting and her able helpers organized. I changed the name a bit for 2010 but much of how things were run last year will be the same.
Please continue to send any blogs by Nigerians or blogs focused on Nigeria to me so I can add them to
this listLists have been moved to nigerianblogawards.com. They will also be listed on Nigerian Blog Awards website, of course!
Can you believe it’s March 1 already? God help us…I have things I need to accomplish before December 31 so I’d like time to slow down a bit!
