Here’s an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 300,000 times in 2014. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 13 days for that many people to see it.

    Pinky, this goes to show how much reach your blog has enjoyed – all under one year of its launch…congratulations a million times over.

    This blog has affected me positively in more ways than space and time would allow me and I am most grateful!

    The commercial side of me is also wondering how you can translate these viewership figures into naira…my only reservation being that which Nigerian brand will willingly sponsor here and it’s competitors get a hang of the news and turn it into a PR war?

    But in all, kudos bro and may this be the beginning of a true wonderful journey for you.

    Have a greater 2015!!!

      Pinky, I am proud of you. This blog will go down in history as the stonewall of Nigerian men. The place were they freely could be themselves. Can’t wait for 2015. Thanks again PP.

      Sweetheart, you need to give up this obsession with DM at some point. Its not good for your health!

        why should I be obsessed with you?

        you are 28, with the most comments on a blog, and giddy about starting an online journal

        I feel bad for you.

          Chizzie, LET IT GO. Please! For heavenssakes! Is there no way you can begin typing a comment without Dennis being its focal point.

          Here’s what I’ll do. Any day you post a comment that has anything ugly to say about Dennis (who you don’t know and really should shut it where he’s concerned), that comment wont survive. I am done letting your poison fester where he’s concerned.

          You don’t like him. We get it. Now get a new hobby.

        Erm sorry, how many times in the last one year have I ever posted a comment about you? And how many times have you posted a comment about me?

        What were you saying again about obsession?

    Yes pinky now what would I be if I didn’t say anything hmm.

    It was a friend that sent me the link and I took one read and I just knew I had to be part of this ‘home’. However, the differences I have to admit this was my obsession and addiction at one time.

    I am not too surprised that it was ALL about me that made the highest hits on this blog…its my natural place everywhere I go…(I say this without being condescending) Its just that some misconstrued ME and yes I can easily say the person did it for bad but TRUST God I always get the CROWN.

    Now because of my passion for Christ I could probably sometimes sound standoffish but really my heart is in the right place when it comes to you guys.

    Over the time I was here I noticed 4 groups of commenters that stand out above…all.

    1. English group
    2. Intellectual group
    3. Class group
    4. Friendly group

    Eh..sorry FKA Chizzie I couldn’t find a place that suited your kind…

    But I still crave one more group which is the highest and without which we would just be “another” gathering…the LOVE group. Those who would STILL love IRRESPECTIVE of the taunts that could come out of any self centred ‘mouth’. I can point out here that over time I have strained and prayed to stay in this class.

    Pinky you work so hard and I know it first hand…Thanx for this ‘home’

    Finally Gad you said something just recently that peaked my interest and that’s about coaching some young guys to read about comments on this blog for ‘their growth’ and that just excited me much. Like it or not WE have an obligation to the silent readers here to portray a better culture and I know by GOD we will….dat is if we haven’t began.

    For the SILENT reader I say this to you….grow stronger and COMMENT…one day…it would liberate you. in other words tell your story somehow and though it might be flung back at ya face…don’t cower…you are stronger than dat…believe me!

    Happy new year guys. Have a blast and don’t forget spend the crossover IN CHURCH….get a higher word for the new year….

    Pinky himself sent me a link to the first story I read on this blog after our hook up and bad sex. (yes I spilled it) and I have not stopped reading since then. I do read other blogs like the popular LIB but I just cant get pass the first 3 comments there cos the comments are mostly insultive, childish and stupid. But here on KD the comments are more matured, funny, witty, informative and highly intellectual. Thank you all for adding such spice and colour to my life. I look forward to reading comments every evening after work. I wish above all for eveyone that you dreams come true. We are here, we are queer and we are the most fabulous. Cheers to a happier 2015 guys! Congrats sisi Pinky

    I’d love to say a big thanks to pinky for not shunning me when I requested a place on the blog to develop my writing skills by putting up a journal. It was a shaky start but with words encouragement and even a few harsh words I dare say I’ve gotten better. I’ve also learnt to not take the comments of strangers who know nothing about me seriously *nods at chizzie* that’s probably the biggest lesson this year for me. I’m glad this place exists…. It is (in a very weird way) like a family… A highly dysfunctional one though.

    Kitodiaries is like my no1 addiction. . Once i wake up in the morning its my first port of call and several times during the day, am eagerly racing back to most importantly read the comments. The level of intellectual talent thats displayed on this blog leaves me reeling with pleasure and reinforces my belief which was recently echoed by the Catholic Church, that truly gays have unqiue talents abd qualities to contribute to society … Dennis Macaulay, Chestnut, sensuous sensei, Rapum’m, Absalom, my kindred spirit – Max ***blows you a big kiss***, Vhar, Colossus, Chizzie … and many others too numerous to mention, y’all rock, am full of pride to live in the same gaybourhood as y’all..
    To our inhouse religitards – Gad and King II, I still love you guys, sortakinda but I’ll nevertheless keep my voice raised about the deep mental harm you suffer from your relentless sucking at the opium pipes….
    To our Chief vitriol merchant – Chizzie, gurl you’re amazeballs, you rock! ***bumps hips***
    To our crown Princess Pinky, Nne you too much! Thanks for birthing this blog, you’ve changed hearts and minds and lives, when our story is told in a more sane time – whenever that time comes, rest assured that you’ll have a prominent spot in the entire narrative. I dont know how you manage to get posts up without fail 98% of the time … may you never tire, may your nights be filled with energizing passion …
    To all the silent readers, may you in 2015, find your voice and contribute as richly abd selflessly as you always have …
    ***down with homophobia ***
