Two years of blogging!

It was a slow day at work exactly two years ago when I decided that I’d procrastinated enough. The sights and sounds of trotro and taxi rides, the quirky happenings on the streets of Accra, and the unique Ghanaisms I witness on the way to work needed to be told. This blog was born in that moment. Without knowing how long I’d be able to keep it going, or what each week (or other week) would bring, I kept it going.

Over 80 posts later, it’s made it this far.

I’ve had exciting guest commuters write their perspectives of commuting from four continents. Many thanks to Benjamin, Sharlon and Dodzi (Ghana), Amma (Rwanda), Tosin (Nigeria and Dubai), Abimbola (USA), Enyima (UK), and Ewuradjoa (Spain).

Thanks to all of you who’ve enjoyed, commented and shared my posts. It means the world to me.

Two years of The Daily Commute: From Bridge to Ridge. How much longer will it last? A month? Six? Another year?

Let’s see what the future holds.

Here’s to eventful trips to work, on any given day.

Thank you.

About Kwaku Dankwa

By day I'm a copywriter at Origin8, which just happens to be Ghana's most awarded advertising agency. Before and after that, I'm just your regular man in the public transport system of Accra, battling it out to get where I need to be with as little drama as possible ... which is hardly ever the case. Since March 2010, I've been publishing this blog, starting as a bi-monthly, and evolving into a weekly, where I talk about everything that is of any interest on my commute. If it has to do with public transport, chances are I've spotted it, and with any luck, I can help you relive it, but maybe this time, you'll see the lighter side of it.

  1. Congratulations, Kwaku. I know this blog will last very long, even if you buy a car of your own, which is soon, I hope.

    This is the song which came to mind after reading this. Hope you remember?

    ” One step at a time, only one step at a time.
    That is the way the Lord will lead you, one step at a time.
    Take that one step carefully, walk that one step prayerfully.
    That is the way to victory, one step at a time. ”

    Need i say more!!

    I like to google my friends and college mates. The lot fell on Dodzi this afternoon. This page came up. I am totally in awe of what you’ve done here. I read close to 10 stories in 10 minutes. I tip my hat, sir! Yessoap!!
