Come Right In…
Nikiibu Notebook is finally up and running, and you’re welcome.
I’ve been working on this site for some time now, mostly primping, in an effort to present, firstly, a visually appealing site. I’m still working on that end. (I’m one of the fussy ones.)
As with form, so with content. In this instance I wrestled with the precise focus of this blog. Of course I had some ideas as to what I wanted it to be about, but choosing one over the other was the problem. I’ve opted finally to cover a broad range of topics, with more than a limited focus on Salia Koroma, the greatest musician-poet Sierra Leone has had to date (in any language spoken in Sierra Leone). In a sense, then, consider this blog a Salia Koroma Vector .
So this certainly isn’t another African music blog, thank you very much! That ground’s well covered. And this most certainly isn’t a public confessional.
This post’s just the start. I’m hoping that this blogging thing will be a long and fruitful (also, mostly enjoyable) journey. It might well turn out to be not unlike the proverbial lorry that plies the route to Kpetewoma, strenuously lurching from side to bone-jarring side as it negotiates the potholes. Hand your bag, bundle, over to the ‘motor-boy.’ Hop in. It’s very empty now, our lorry, but we hope to pick up other riders along the way.
Don’t forget to leave your feedback—constructive comments, critiques, etc. Your scorn and ridicule, though, you can keep for yourself.
