I'm Coming OUT! Hi, my name is....


The time is now!

Hi my name is Ayo Thompson and I am a blogger!

I have been off and on since 2008 but I think I have been a bit more consistent in the past year or two. I hope that improves even more!

I have met such AMAZING people here - some whom I now count as friends. I loveddd my privacy and being able to say as much as I could (not like I did anyway! lol) without thinking "hmmm"..

However, today, and as part of the goals for 2014 - 'Building Relationships' for this blog, I am coming OUT! :-D - What better way to be better accesible and hopefully build better relationships with blogsville than becoming un-anonymous ey? lol... I'm so nervous mehnn!!

 I love Man U and the no 7!

 I have a SWEET tooth (many actually lol)

 ... Buy me food and I can literally fall in love with you!

I believe that everyone should let out their inner child frequently!

 This picture was probably taken the same year I started the blog!  :-)

That's all folks! Now you can ask me any question you want! lol

PS Waiting and Loving IT series continues tomorrow xx

Follow me on twitter too @1plustheone or email

    Men, what a surprise! I did not see this one coming o! Ayo Thompson, nice to meet you. You have inspired some of us to come out too :-) Here's to more awesome posts from you and taking your blog to a whole new level.

    Congratulations? Welcome? Well done? All of the above.
