Welcome to a new month. May is a month which brings with it huge possibilities and new hope. It is also a busy month on Naija Housewives. The past few months have been hectic, but they have also been growing months with all the attendant pains and joys. We have a lot planned for this month and we shared most of it on the Facebook page.
We have our first hangout planned for this month and it’s taking place in Port Harcourt. So if you are in PH, plan to attend. You can find more details here.
The Sunday Selfies has been a huge hit with our community however we might have to stop this contest. There have been small issues which we can manage, but we also need sponsors. If you or anyone you know might be interested in being a sponsor, you will find all the information you need on this page. In the meantime though, we’ll still continue with the contest and see how things go.
Theme for the Month: The Total Woman
Here’s what you can look forward to this month:
The theme for this month is The Total Woman. They say that when mom is unhappy, everyone else is unhappy. We don’t want to raise unhappy kids so we are going to explore ways we as women can gain greater fulfillment from our God-given roles. So this month we’re going to discuss:
1. Living a balanced life
2. Taking care of our personal finances (even if you don’t have an income)
3. Parenting Tips
4. How to handle stress in a healthy way
5. Taking care of our health
We’re adding 2 new columnists to our family.
i. Rashidat, our in-house importer businesswoman will be writing forthnightly on what it takes to start an importing business
ii. Nkem (who is one of our admins here) will be sharing quick tips about parenting, stress management, time management and anything else that takes her fancy.
iii. Sharon will also be writing a personal column. We’re not sure what this is about, but it sounds interesting.
iv. We are introducing a weekly column from a stylist blogger. This is one career women won’t want to miss.
Columns which were introduced last month and will still be running include:
- – The Woman Entrepreneur, which is a weekly interview with a woman doing business in Nigeria
- – Keeping a Home Poultry, a weekly post with tips and instructions on how to keep a home poultry from our in-house expert
- – HALIMA – a chapter from this story will continue weekly
