Its been 4 years!

Its been 4 years!


This picture turned up in my notifications yesterday. A reminder that I have been in the wordpress community for four years now. I remember when I first started, I Was 18. I didn’t have any plan for the blog, hence it’s unfortunate name “randoms by a random”, and now that I am… (I’ll let you fill in the gap), i’ld like to believe that as I got older, my writings have evolved.

In the past four years, I have come across some phenomenal poets, I have fallen in love with many amazing poems which I try to share on writer’s poem Wednesday. And most importantly, I got to build a connection with so many incredible people.

And what’s more, many of them have gone on to publish their own books: My girl Rosema published (Between my bleeding lines), my Sister released her book “Soul Unraveled”, Jodi wrote a children’s book (Klaus the mouse and other silly animal tales), Colin chappel has published three books and the latest addition and my very good friend Carolyn , just recently releases her book called “The Odessa Chronicles”, which she co-wrote with Colin Chappel.


As writers, we support other writers. Go ahead, contact the writers above, get their books, leave a review and show some love.

To mark my four years here, (even though half the time, I am AWOL),  I would like to host a bloggers Q&A. I can’t believe I’ve never done one before. So, drop me your questions below and and I will be more than happy to answer them in a post.

Thank you for supporting. For reading, for dropping your two cents and for always welcoming me back whenever I go away without notice. ❤️❤️

Drop your questions below in the comment section.

    1. How did “a question” become two questions? A little counting challenge perhaps? Chose to ignore the Blog owner’s request perhaps? Not completed the ESL course perhaps? 🙂


      1. Well as you have probably guessed, I have not been able to come up with a good answer for your question! (at least not an answer that would make me look good!) So there is only one thing I do know for sure and that is that it wasn’t any of the answers that you gave, especially Number 3. 🙂

  4. Happy Blog Anniversary! 4 years is a long time and I hope you’ll continue blogging for many more years to come! I’ve come to love your blog and treasure our friendship, and my cozy corner here in WordPress would definitely feel a little emptier if you were to leave!

    As for a question, hmm…who would you cast as yourself in a movie about your life?
