The Moskeda Book Club

So the survey I ran here a few days ago has been completed. I want to thank everyone who participated and for the feedback that I received. Bless you! I will give you the results in a bit, but first, I want to introduce the Moskeda Book Club to you. We’re on Instagram and it’s not yet begun because I’m working on a few things at the moment. I hope to start it off on the first of August. I’m excited and nervous at the same time because I don’t know what to expect. But I’m sure we’ll find our footing. So the Moskeda Book Club is going to be like any other book club, but with a difference. We will read and share our thoughts on what we read and those thoughts would be published as a collective review here on the site. This is to help people catch…

IANS, New Series and Goodbye 2016

The year has come to an end and I’m glad to be here, still writing. It has been an eventful year for me. A tough one for all of us, I guess. Nigeria has never been this depressing but somehow we made it. My heart goes out to those who have lost loved ones this year. Be consoled. May peace find rest in your hearts. So, I just want to thank all of you for riding with me this year. Every single person. For coming here, reading, commenting, sharing, buying my books, checking up on me, praying for me, telling people about my work… I owe you so much.

Welcome Back!

Happy New Month, fam! I can’t believe it’s the end of the year already. This has been quite some ride. At times, bumpy, but God has been to us. So, the past couple of days have been awful for me on this blog. The new theme I got which was given to me by someone for free but which I had to pay someone else to tweak certain parts, messed up my site. Yes, I can see some of you smiling. Those of you that didn’t like the change in the first place. And to think my dear friend, Steve (a web developer), offered to help me with it at no cost but I declined because I didn’t want to take advantage of his kindness. Anyways, the site went berserk on Thursday, showing a 500 Internal Server Error at the backend that now spread to the frontend. At some point,…

Moskedapages Gets Nominated At The Nigerian Writers' Awards

So I was jejely on my own when I got a message from a friend in a Whatsapp group that I have been nominated for the Nigerian Writers’ Awards 2017. Not once. But twice! The first is for Blogger of the Year. The second is for Fiction Writer of the Year for The Fourth Finger. I smiled. You guys know me, I don’t do these nominations and vote stuff, reasons being that I feel that my work should get noticed for what it is and not the number of votes. Well, that was how I felt until my husband told me to reset my thinking. But wait first, which one of you went to nominate me? Raise your hands in the comment box. Confess! LOL! Don’t mind me. I appreciate it. You guys have been awesome. To be nominated as blogger of the year alongside the likes of Linda Ikeji, Bellanaija,…

Dear Writer: How To Make Money Off Writing

This post has been on my mind for a long time. I keep postponing it but today I think it would be appropriate to do something about it. What I am about to share with you is something people pay hard earned cash to get at seminars and lectures. I am not going to charge you for this. Just take your time and read, bookmark and come back and read again to get motivated. First of all, I want to start by saying that if you think writing is a side job, something you do only during your free time, this will not work for you. Just kindly go on Facebook and Snapchat or elsewhere to while away time, that is after you share this post on social media to those who really need it. People always come to me to ask me to tutor them on writing and blogging…
