Instagram and Friends Who Don't Want Us To Be Great. Why?

In the real world likes don't matter, but on Instagram, likes is life! Like, what else is the point? 

Posting a seemingly good selfie and getting few or no likes can totally ruin your day and make you begin to question your very existence. 

And it's in the course of this questioning that you also ask, but even if instagram people couldn't like my picture, what about my friends?


You now lean back as realization dawns, that you have some friends who follow you on Instagram but never, like NEVER like your pictures. 

Such people don't want you to be great in life. Such people are NOT your friends. 

Seriously. I have a "close" friend who tags me on several videos or posts but has never liked one of my pictures, not ONE ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜จ.

Yes I checked ๐Ÿ™ˆ.

If you don't like my pictures on Instagram then you don't deserve my friendship in real life ๐Ÿšถ. 

But I always wondered, should I give them the benefit of doubt, like, maybe they just didn't see my post, maybe they missed it somehow...

But I attended an event on Sunday, and I was joined by a close friend. And I took a selfie. And I posted it. And it was getting likes. And at some point my eyes strayed towards my friend. And she was on Instagram. And at that very point she scrolled to my picture. And she stopped for a few seconds and looked at it. And then she just scrolled past, like ๐Ÿ˜. And I was sitting right there beside her! Ahn ahn ore mi! ๐Ÿ˜ฟ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ง๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

Fear God! ๐Ÿ˜•

If you cannot like my picture in my presence only God knows what you can do in my absence๐Ÿ˜ง๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜ต. 

And I said to her "AH! Why didn't you like my picture?"

And she didn't now know what to say. 


*awkward silence* 

*clears throat*

"I will like it later". 

HUH? ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

LOL. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚


Hehehe. Who can relate? Just having fun, this sun wants to melt me, I need to leave this country ooo!

Meanwhile please follow our blog on Instagram on @thelmathinksblog 

Thank you. 



  1. "...I will like it later..."

    Epic. Hahaha. That's EXACTLY what I'd say too. How can you be asking me that kind of question?

    "...Why didn't you like my picture?.."

    For real? LMHO. That's how you know your true friends na. Must I "like" your pictures and videos to prove myself ni? Be warned...

    1. Lol. This is just so funny, let me go and scrutinise my friends on IG.

  2. I have this friend on Instagram like that too,we grew up together.I like all her pictures and she ignores mine...When she got married and started posting the wedding pictures,I stalked her and immediately she post,I post mine too and move on...I didn't wish her a single HML,she got a message and sent me a ping on bbm that I didn't even like her wedding pictures and I was like WTF!!!you do the same to me and I don't whine...Since that day she started liking mine and I still don't like hers...TNHW

  7. I don't really bother except for my closest friend. You must like it o๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚, everyone of it. what else are you doing on IG๐Ÿค”

  8. "Posting a seemingly good selfie and getting few or no likes can totally ruin your day and make you begin to question your very existence." Errr... on which planet?

    Its just funny... I have colleagues who would put up pictures and then inform you so you can "go and like my picture", it leaves me in stitches everytime. I don't think it's that serious but I don't put pictures up everyday so... I also don't like pple's pictures unless they're looking exceptionally good in them...

    Then there are those ones who would like ALL your pictures as soon as they start following you, what's up with that? It's like someone liking your 2007 pictures of Facebook... I don't think I'll ever understand the "like" phenomenon sha..

    1. I can relate to new followers liking your pictures, lol, I always get angry when I see instagram bombarding me with notifications from someone who liked my pictures from as far back as a year ago, and am like, Bros, you no get work nii? N
      Shoo. And as for the likes, the beefing is real, I only give likes to those who do the same to me, even on facebook, if you ignore my post then I ignore yours too. Abeg who like epp? No time Biko.

    2. I was about to quote the same statement...and lol. Chrisyinks

  9. I don't want to learn from Google but two questions have been on my mind for long.
    1. Why the craze for Instagram likes, what are the benefits?
    2. Why do people say don't follow to unfollow? And you will be blocked if you unfollow, what are the benefits of following somebody?

    Anyway, yet to see any benefit to join any of these social media wahala!

    1. 1. Absolutely no benefits. What does have benefits on Instagram however is followers. If you have many followers, several thousands for instance, it could be very instrumental in growing your business, creating awareness for your brand, or people can even pay you for to do ads for them etc. But likes have zero benefits except maybe massaging your ego (if it needs to be massaged).

      2a. "Don't follow to unfollow" some (often very immature) people follow you so that you follow them back, and then when you follow them back they now unfollow you. It's a pathetic way of building followership, it also makes some people feel cool when they have many followers and they're following only few people, just like celebrities.

      b. I have no idea...

      c. The benefits of following someone. Are there any real benefits? Most times it's just for fun, maybe to be entertained or to do gbeborun and know what is going on in other people's lives. But there are some benefits like following inspirational pages, money and finance pages or other educational pages and blogs. But in the real sense of the word "benefit", there are no actual benefits in following someone of IG.

    2. Sounds boring to me!

    3. Thanks Thelma, I will keep to staying away from Instagram then.

  10. Pls does anyone know where or someone I can get hairs from and resell? I wanna go into hair business but I need some guidance.thanks

    1. Yes I do. My cousin is in the hair business, wigs and weaves and she sells to retailers, you can call her on 08080011672. Her name is Gabby.

  11. Lol. All is vanity. Instagram and every other social media (picture taking platform) are just virtual realities..

  12. They dnt hit like maybe because d picture u post does not wort to like. Lol it happen anyways

  13. Instagram is a very funny medium. Many people on instagram are monitoting spirits and some others are just there for entertainment. Some days I scroll through and never like any picture and some days I like every damn picture - there is absolutely no reasoning behind it.

    For me instagram is good in that I have an actual private account for my personal use and a public one for the blog. What I am unable to post on FB or feel uncomfortable posting on FB (still don't know how I know 800 or so plle on FB) I post on instagram. My dad gets almost all his pictures of my kids from my instagram page- I don't think he has ever liked any of my doesnt bother me.

    Likes never helped anybody unless you are marketing a product.

  14. Lol I noticed it too thought, friends often don't like your pictures on Instagram but it's no big deal at all. Nice read thelma

  15. Lol. I'm not on instagram so it's hard to relate. Even to change bbm picture is hard for me how can I keep up with instagram. Seriously when I hear people go on and on about likes I assume they are joking. I don't think I need likes to acknowledge when my picture is lit ( I have been looking for opportunity to use that word lit heheheh).J

  16. Instagram is demonic...yes I said it, you plan on spending 10minutes then end up spending 1hr just looking at pictures and by then it would have been too late to read your bible. The only thing it does it take peoples time and throw it into abyss. Its just so unfortunate that ive closed my account 3times yet open it again, what can I say if you cant beat them you join them. As for the likes I really don't bother much am there for peeps pics not mine, don't you just like the fact that everyone is always shinning and happy. LOL

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

One More Post...


He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrรฉe comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrรฉe is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…
