A new month and new quarter, relatively early in the year, feels like an opportunity to hit refresh and give your 'new year resolve' another go. Perhaps now you have a more developed idea of what you want to achieve in 2013 and a more realistic idea of how you're going to make it all happen.
That's how I'm feeling today. Especially after 2 great meetings – one with my business partner on our strategic direction for the rest of the year and, one with a new friend about a collaboration we're working on – I'm energised and excited about executing!
You may also have noticed that the blog is looking marginally different. I've spent some time over this long weekend making some changes. So, what's new on Afri-love?
My ideas regarding the purpose of the blog have slightly evolved from where I began almost 4 years ago. The general idea and philosophy remains the same but, the 'how' has grown. The key themes you can expect to explore are:
Have a visit of the landing pages above to discover what they each have to offer. Not to worry, your favourite bits are most likely still covered (but please let me know if they're not).
I've simplified the design to give you more 'breathing space' to enjoy the content. Staying connected beyond this domain is easy via the various digital media buttons in the top right-hand side of the site (Facebook, Pinterest, posts via email etc.).
In line with my passion to support African and diaspora businesses and enterprising people in general, I'm now offering ad space on the blog. I'm going to be very discerning as to the products/services/offerings advertised to ensure that they are relevant and valuable to you. Proceeds earned from sponsorship will enable me to put even more time and resources into developing the blog and creating more valuable content for you.
If you are interested in sponsoring, find out more on the Sponsor page.
I hope that these changes enhance your Afri-love experience. As always, I would love to hear your thoughts. And do remember, if there is something you want more of on the blog, just let me know.
