Networking: Lola Akinmade and Ada Agbim

Posted in:
Hello everyone, hope your holidays are going well. I don't know about the other places but today is also a holiday in Nigeria, hehehe....I want to wish everyone a successful and happy New Year in Advance. May we achiever all our dreams and our projects be met with success! On that note; one major advantage of blogging is the social networking aspects. I continue to credit the early success and  AHTM buzz to blogger's support and interest. And it is with pleasure that I share these two bloggers with you and their dreams and events.

1. Lola Akinmade is a Nigerian Blogger who shares travel stories and pictures from her base in Sweden. She wrote me to humbly solicit your votes if you haven't cast it yet to support one of her dreams. Quark Expeditions will be sending a writer to the North Pole to document and provide engaging reports about the trip in June 2011 and they have opened the spot to interested travelers via voting. Lola has registered and really would love to represent as a Nigerian travel writer and photographer! Please vote and promote Lola here -

Every single vote counts towards finally making Lola's childhood dream a reality and she's currently a front-runner (3rd) and the top 5 to qualify to the final judging round. Equally as important, please forward the link to friends/family/colleagues/other networks as well - ("Lola Goes North") - to anyone who you feel can help. Every bit helps. Thank you!

2. Ada Agbim also wrote me through this blog. She was recently certified to teach two awesome group fitness programs in the US and is looking to bring them to Nigeria. This Christmas, she is doing a little preliminary research to see how receptive Lagos would be to the programs and would love to get as many people to try the class out. Please choose a date that works for you and join Ada and her class, I'll try to attend the FREE events on January 6th and 7th, wink wink...

  2. I'm glad to say that I've already voted for Lola.
    I'm not in Lagos, so unfortunately, I cant drop by Ada's sessions. I wish her the best of luck though.
    Hope you are still enjoying Naija, Myne.

  3. Saw the Link for the Lola Lady on twitter, but did not know what to do...Now i understand, would sure go vote for her.

    Happy New Year in advance

  4. Hi Myne,

    Thank you so much for your support and generosity in listing my North Pole campaign on your blog. Every single vote counts and we're getting closer.

    Thanks to everyone who has voted so far. Please take a minute to forward the link on to others as well -



  5. Interestingly enough, I actually think I know Ada. Does she live/work in VA/DC? I think we're sort of family friends.

    I wish Lola the best and I have already voted for her. Ada's idea sounds great and I hope it works out.

  6. Thanks Naijamum and Lara. And yes, I'm still in Nigeria.

    @EDJ, maybe she's the one. I'll tell her when we meet.

  7. Compliments of the season dear. Its been a while oh..

  8. Please ask Ada Agbim if she remembers Chinenye Ude...she's my mum[that's her maiden name], and they used to be really tight friends[i remember going to her house in Independence Layout as a kid], i think they lost touch or something. please just ask...thanks. And here's wishing her good luck with her fitness programme

  9. Interesting one. Would try to attend one of the fitness class.

    Off to vote for Lola.
    Sure you're really enjoying this Naija trip.


  10. Thanks Olufunke, I really I am. Happy New year!

    @Storm, I'll remember to ask when I meet Ada. Hope you're good?

    Thanks everyone!
