I really don't have much of a plan for Kaleidoscope, as of yet... that is, as to what my blog is going to be all about! I just know that I have been wanting to have my own blog for a couple of months now. Why? Because, I love to write. Or let me put it this way rather, I used to lovvve writing! But then, Senior High School happened to me! And despite my interests in the arts I became a pure science student and since then I never seemed to have any more time to write or read for that matter.

When I was younger though, I remember spening hours on our home pc (Gateway 2000 , or is it 3000; ????hmmm. ???)  typing out my own fictional stories. I used to win a lot of literary competitions back in those days. I also started writing my first diary when I was in Grade 6. It was a day-to-day one that I still have to this day. It cracks me up now when I read the kind of things that meant so much to me back then.... crushes on boys and men! (Will Smith, my teacher, etc.), insecurities about my lack of 'feminine features' (yea, I was a late bloomer!), secrets about friends of mine, dreams... funny thing is, I kept up a consistent diary through the years; all the way through to my first year of Senior High School (Grade 10). However, I couldn't keep writing it on a regular basis as I would have liked to. I was in an all-girls boarding school you see. So, writing in my diary became rather sporadic until somewhere in Senior High School year three when I gave up all together. Now, well I wouldn't dare keep a diary; no, not because I don't have the time... but,  the thought of keeping a trail of the kind of crazy and random things I have gotten up to within the last couple years of my life scares the hell out of me! lol.  I always say that, very few people know me for who I really am.  Most people -unknown to them- only scratch the surface.

Anyway, I seem to have digressed.... Basically, what I am saying is that with this blog here I am just trusting that it will build itself as time goes on. I don't have a laid out plan; I will just take it a day at a time.  With time maybe it'll have more of a focus; but presently, all I know is that it will just be a wide array of random things that mean something to me. Sort of a way of expressing myself in many ways than one!

I am open to ideas if anyone has any for me! But I do hope against all hopes that at least, my blog "Kaleidoscope" will interest someone out there....

Cheers... ;)


  1. What isn't Prempeh College up here?? ;-)

  2. Amongst the photos? Well, incase you didn't notice the title for the photos says 'BEAUTIFUL' places I've been to... ;) lol

  3. ideas for a blog...i could give you some but then if u're not interested in the topic, your writing will be dull and then who will want to read it?

    I'll suggest some anyway...

    1. A signs blog...all the funny, and interesting sign boards in Accra. You could do commentary on them and try to tease out what the people intended to communicate.
    2. A tro-tro signs blog...similar to idea number 1, but looking now at writings on tro-tros.
    3. Be a Ghana style walk around town and take photos of anyone who looks like they really tried to shadda that day and still did not get it right:)

    These are things that interest me but i don't have the time to put in the work required to make a good blog out of the ideas. So if you like them, go crazy!

  4. Ohmigosh!!! I'm honoured to be visited by the famous Esi of the 'Wo se ekyir' fame!!!! like Steven Spielberg visiting the cast of 'key soap concert party'... lol. You were my inspiration you know!I hope my blog gets as interactive and exciting as yours someday!

    Anyway, I love your ideas, would def draw me a crowd! However, I'm wondering about the time aspect to; I do see myself incorporating some of these ideas as soon as i can make the time though. After all, since my blog is rather random without much of a theme, it wont hurt at all.

    Thanks a lot Esi... btw, when did you start wo se ekyir?
