Hello! This feels really good and I am super grateful to everyone that has supported my journey till now. It took me a while to discover what my blog was actually about but I later got to the root and voila! My former blog was titled ‘Funmi’s thoughts’ I never liked the name but I had no option so it just stayed. Last year, I wanted a re branding so I came up with the name. DASIENCE. Yes, I know you have been wondering what that means so let’s get to it.
As a Nigerian, you get so many names. I am not the first child so I wasn’t given as lot of names. My great grandmother named me Omodasola (A child that adds to wealth). Sometimes, I wish it was my first name because Oluwafunmilola (God gave me wealth) is so common. But it is what it is. My English name is Patience. Trust me, I hated the name growing up but I have come to love it.
Who is Dasience?
Dasience is the combination of my name DASola and PatIENCE. That’s the story really but to me it means acceptance. I hated the name Patience but look at me now,it is part of my brand. Dasience means accepting myself the way I am in a bid to be a better person. People will never call me Dasola; Dasola is like a bigger picture that seems unattainable. With Dasience I am accepting myself for everything I am but also striving to get to the bigger picture. If you don’t understand what Dasience is just accept it as it is, what does Instagram mean anyway?
I have thought about so many things to blog about; fashion, lifestyle or psychology? I settled on books because I love writing; books and writing are siblings right? On this blog, I’d be sharing my writings, book reviews and other things I love doing.
If you follow my former blog you will realize that I have a weekly series; celebrating greatness. I have just one left for this year and it will be published in December. The purpose of my blog is not just to celebrate people and I want to use the coming weeks to just share what I love.
I promise to do a giveaway soon. I should have done it on my one year of blogging but life. Probably before the year runs out.
I am open for collaborations and features.
Welcome to Dasience.
I am the literary pundit.
