Celeb Of the Week

I knew about Elsie Godwin before I met her. And when I met her, I realized she is that woman who has a reputation that is larger than life.

Larger than herself, even. Lol. I saw her, and it seemed she defined the word ‘petite.’

But her frame belies her true nature of intelligence and influence. She’s a blogger and a writer, and someone with such a wealth of knowledge on the dynamics of men and women, that I find myself wondering that I might soon open a Vanguard newspaper to see a ‘Dear Aunt Elsie’ column in it.

When I asked her to speak a bit about herself for the benefit of this feature, here’s what she had to say:

‘As an aspiring entrepreneur, I started blogging on the 29th of December 2012, on a wordpress platform. I actually thought of having a blog first when I wanted to share my experience of a bad relationship with others. I’d approached my friends who used to blog then to help me post it, but they all declined and asked me to do it myself. I let the thought slide until after two months when I had the urge to write about virginity and its advantages. I did a little scribbling, opened my blog site on wordpress and posted. I got a good response from those who read and I kept at it. At first it was all fun for me, until I saw the idea of touching people’s lives through my blog. Now it’s www.elsieisy.com, and I love the progress already. I have come across great writers, still meet more and I adore my readers. I am still enjoying every bit of it. The growth is amazing, and that makes the hard work a bit bearable.

‘I am about putting out a lot of positivity into the world. I let what I do encourage those who come across my deeds. I hope to make people understand that we are all humans and we make mistakes but that mistakes shouldn’t stop you from moving forward. I hope to make people understand that our challenges are there to make us a better person and point us to the right direction most times, and I hope to make a difference no matter how little it seems.’

And there it is, folks – what Elsie Godwin is about. If you haven’t already, you should pay a visit to her blog, elsieisy.com. She’s currently running down a blog-fest of stories that are both educative and entertaining.

  1. I like the last photo with the black top…..and hey, we heard nothing about her relationship status (not like I expect such a sweet one to be ‘available’).

    It’s a fact, Elsie can write, she’s not afraid to take on issues headlong, and she wont be intimidated by anyone. Simply put, she’s a whole lot of great content squeezed into a pretty, not-so-large vessel
