Welcome To Thembi Terry's Blog

The Zimbabwean Personal Blogger

Thembelihle Terry-Lynne Zulu is a female personal blogger known as Thembi Terry living in Zimbabwe. She writes about her life experiences with quip and quirk that's authentically her. You can hear her voice as you read her posts. It's definitely an experience. Live vicariously.

Thembi’s blog is informative on a wide range of issues but what I love the list about it is that it’s really provocative you are never ready for the truths that will leave you shaking. And I love love Thembi.

Thembi’s blog is a rare find on the internet. Everything posted online seems to have a filter and honesty is hard to find, until now. Her blog reminds me that the truth matters, I can hear her voice in each piece and it whispers I’m not alone. Her writing reminds me that there is no final destination in becoming a better person, it’s a continuous process that we must work at daily.

“Everytime I get a notification that Thembi Terry has blogged I get excited because I absolutely love reading her posts. She tackles real life issues, she’s open and honest making her relatable and goes to show that life goes on and that you can overcome anything you set your mind to.She’ll tackle real life issues and share her experiences but won’t bum us out. The use of GIFs add comic relief but it gets the point across.”

I’ve Got A Thing for the Buddie Beatz Music App

If you know me, you know that I never go anywhere without my phone and my headphones. I have a playlist for every chore and every mood. It wasn’t until I had to go to the States that I fell so homesick I started to really appreciate music from home. My favourite song during the culture shock was ‘Kure.’ I’d…

Once you give it away, it’s not yours

Two Christmases ago I wanted to get my Samsung phone fixed so that I could give my little sister the Huawei since she barely had a phone. I failed to get the Samsung fixed and my boyfriend gifted me a Nokia 6 instead. I gave my sister the Huawei as planned. Fast forward to this year, I got a new…

Your kids aren’t a reboot of your life

I hear people a lot talking about, “I wanna give my kids a life I never had growing up.” This has been a problematic ideology for me because imagine I wanna buy my child a walkman because I didn’t have one growing up. Different generations require different gadgets and this is what the blog post is about today. You cannot…

I got the grant, don’t give up

I remember anxiously pacing up and down the halls at 26 Ceres Road like my office chair had pins in it and I was avoiding it. My palms were damp and I couldn’t stop blabbering. I talk too much when I’m nervous. I WhatsApp’d Zelipah Mukudu all day in preparation for this presentation. I thought for sure I had it…

Sometimes the Blessing is Just for You
Sometimes the Blessing is Just for You

I’ve had some insane business ideas! Exciting ideas which are the epitome of innovation and forward thinking. These ideas didn’t work out not because they weren’t great, but because the team I had wasn’t. I tried to share my blessing with people who didn’t deserve it. Growing up, I had heard people say, “a gift is never passed,” and I…

How House Chores Could’ve Made Me a Better Adult

I wish I had done more house chores when I was growing up. I envy the people who had strict parents who gave them strict duty roasters to adhere to. My kids will have chores assigned to them the moment they are able to walk and talk. NORMALISE HOUSE CHORES FOR THE BOY CHILD! STOP DENYING CHILDREN BASIC LIFE SKILLS.…

The Year 2020: Operation Monica Lewinsky

Every year I have a theme for my blogging content and this year the theme is Monica Lewinsky. When her story broke way back then, I didn’t understand what was happening. I really didn’t care. I only read up on her when Nicki Minaj referenced her in the ‘Still I rise‘ song. I’ve always had a thing for bad girls…

If I Could Speak at Harare WordCamp 2019

Harare WordCamp is coming up soon and I am very excited about this one. I really wanted to go last year but we had a huge campaign in studio and there was no way I could have taken time off but this year, it’s on my list. Had a near death experience from last year’s FOMO. Makupsy and Beaton were…

#WIASummit: How do African women engage the world and create a new paradigm?

They say black women are loud, but did you know that psychologically people that speak the loudest and have no sense of an indoor voice are people that are dying to feel heard and being loud makes them feel like they are increasing their chances of that? If there were 8 people in the room, black and white of different…
