Oh well, I’m a Blogger

Y’all, I’ve been stuck! 😩

Oh, pardon my manners. Hey, Stars!✨ How’re y’all doing? I miss interacting with you on here. By the way, you should totally follow me on social media!

I apologise for being MIA. I was… Let’s just say it’s not been intentional, okies. So, I have a small gist for you 😉

You know the thing about being a Personal Blogger is that we believe we can do, say or write just about anything. And truthfully, we can.

Sometimes when I share a personal experience or angle on an issue and I get lots of comments in agreement with my stance, I wonder if my Stars are people of like minds or y’all just agree with me because, “Well… It’s her blog!”

Tell me, is that what it is really? Are we really kindred spirits or you people just indulge me? ‘Cause I know for sure that my sensometer (sense meter – see what I’m saying about writing whatever because we can?) isn’t that full, or is it?

Okay fine, don’t answer that. I just wanted someone to massage my ego.

So, earlier this week, I was telling a baby girl (hi, Ibukun🥰) how I think I suck at writing. Actually, I know I suck.

Fun Fact: I HATE writing but, I loveeee blogging.

People I’ve told this to find it hard to accept there’s a difference, but there really is. I believe a writer is someone who writes (Gelax Einstein… durrr🙄) and follows the rules of writing. You get?

But as a blogger, I, Bolaji Gelax, sort of converse more than I write. I mean if you’ve been following my blog and you ever meet me in person or hear me speak, then you’ll see that there’s little to no difference between Gelax the blogger and Gelax the… well, blogger.

Okay, now I feel I’m rambling. Please tell me you get what I mean (or not) in the comment section. And yep, that’s exactly what I would say if I were speaking to you one-on-one, without the comment section bit, of course! LOL

Phew! Now I’m wondering what the essence of this blog post is 🤔 because honestly, I can’t remember. Which is another thing I do. I start a conversation, I digress, then digress again in the middle of the digression and by the time I realize I had digressed, I’d apologise to whoever is listening, try to remember why I started the talk (I always mutter “My mind is blessed” under my breath), apologise again, attempt to wrap up the conversation with whatever comes to my mind and oh, then I finally remember what the talk was supposed to be about.

It’s absolutely crazy!

And if you haven’t noticed, I just did the same thing with this post you’re reading… Heheheee.

See what I mean? I am just a bloody (personal) blogger and that makes me amazed that you, my dearest Stars, read my posts, engage them and return to read some more. Because, what is this mess?!

Oh, now I remember what I wanted to say with this post. I’ve been experiencing writer’s block for almost two weeks now and I thought writing about the block will help me break free. You see…? I could have just said that from the beginning of this messy post but no, I forgot, rambled on and on about whatever and only just remembered. God help me!🤦🏻‍♀️

And now I’m really curious as to how people who listen to me speak cope with this chaotic me? Honestly, y’all are the realest MVPs!

PS: You don’t know how lucky you are that you don’t get to read my first drafts because… 🤭

Hey, Star! Thanks for stopping by my world. I'm a gorgeous, sassy radio junkie who enjoys playing devil's advocate. I love everything that makes me happy, which includes the Stars in my #Galaxy. They call me MISS FLOWERY because I bring good vibes, love and light. Feel free to explore my world ❤✨

  1. I know exactly what you mean! I think the fact that you write the way you speak makes your posts more…engaging and personal.
    Anyway, come back soon 😂♥️

  2. How I relate to the writers block. It’s been over a month for me 😦

    But most importantly don’t worry about your rambling. It’s interesting and makes everything fun. I get a glimpse of who you are and how you talk. It’s like a conversation you know. Really cool!

  3. Blogging is liberating, because it is YOUR space. So, you can ramble, converse, digress, share, overshare, take a break…. And it would be ok.

    I personally love your personality. I have never seen you in person, and it’s unlikely I ever will, so being part of this galaxy is a privilege opportunity to see that.

    If you followed rules of “writing” we would miss all the slang, the tangents, the Gelax winks and all the idosyncracies we love.

    1. Liberating is definitely the word! 💯

      Why the heck did you comment anonymously, Star??? 😩😭

      I know you right? Like we talk talk, don’t we? Because your handwriting looks (sounds) so familiar 😅.

      But really though, thank you for making me blush. And yes, I love you too! 😘

  4. Hahahaha.
    I specifically enjoyed reading this particular post because you seem to just be saying almost everything that goes on in my head.
    I love blogging more than writing too.
    When blogging, my spirit is soaring and my strength is renewed per second but writing.. hmm sometimes I even doubt myself.
    Like previous comment from a star, blogging is liberating and I constantly feel the freedom so dear Gelax, feel free to blog about any and everything, we are here to take every ride with you.
    And yes, I like the fact that your blogging style matches your personality 100%, I believe that is one trait we share as blog sisters!

    1. Compared to writing, blogging is just so… Liberating! I think I’ve found a new favourite word… Heheheee 😅.
