When I first started ExcellerBlog towards the end of 2015, I was working in an educational institute. It was conceived in an “ideas-in-the-shower” moment, literarily. I will never forget that morning, haha.
At that time in my life, I was contemplating on how I could reach many of my students about concepts that we could not discuss in-depth in class; like how to strangulate examination fevers, or the importance of making study timetables. Considering that we only had so many minutes within the allotted weekly periods to talk about Thermodynamics or Unit Operations or whatever subject I was teaching them. I needed another ‘space’ for these conversations.
Then, I also had some students approach me during office hours about concerns, and after giving them my two-cents on the matter, there was the need to document the key points for their future reference.
In addition, of course, the evangelist in this girl needed a platform to tell my students and others in my world about God’s love and the salvation that is available through Jesus Christ.
So, I reached out to a blogger-friend who taught me the ropes and voila, Excellerblog was born!
I wrote my heart out, I contacted some friends who also pitched in. You can find all their wonderful posts from the Guest Writer category. We were no experts on excellence; I am quite certain that we still aren’t, haha. But we reach into our God-given wisdom, our experiences and research, and most importantly, we have continued to grow. Personally, continuous improvement is one of my life values. I could never trade it off nor underestimate it.
After a while, I got so busy and thrown into ‘life’ that Excellerblog was suspended. Time passed. Dust gathered and cobwebs grew on here. Life went on. Until I sensed a need to clean and reopen house. And Excellerblog gloriously reawakened! During the break, I changed jobs, changed location, got married and have become a mother. I know what you are thinking, massive life-transformation. And you are right. My world viewpoint has become more rounded and deeper which is wonderful for subsequent posts, but some things have stayed the same so hopefully, you would be able to touch the essence that drew you to the blog in the first place.
So, whilst you may read the teacher in some posts, you may hear the reflective woman in others but most importantly, I pray that you would hear Jesus in every line speaking sweetly to your mind and propelling you to greater levels.
Please, peruse. Read to your heart’s filling. You will find all the posts from the Menu. The posts are also arranged in a number of categories including the Inspiring, Academic, Love and Family, and my Musings.
Do not hesitate to comment on the posts and share with others!
Let’s go, Exceller-people! ***insert breakdance emoji
