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.

Bold, unedited, honest and eye opening! Thembi Terry’s blog uniquely takes you though her everyday encounters and life lessons we can all relate to and learn from. A rare voice for the young African man or woman discussing everything from love , sex , beauty and even witchcraft! Entertaining and informative! I definitely enjoy kicking it with TT.”

“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 used to watch a soapie called Backstage when I was little. On Backstage, they had a morning radio program called Juice, and the opening billboard would say, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, with juice.” Do you see what they did there? Growing up, this assumption of breakfast being the most important meal of the day…

Bumped into a story online about how Diddy is dating his son’s ex-girlfriend. I thought what in the Kalanga tradition is this? We sat in the car and listened to Elliot justify that Lori Harvey is a baddie and that a young man can’t handle her. She needs matured males not like her other ex, Trey Songz. Apparently Steve Harvey’s…

I used to hate going to pick up my sisters from their school. If I didn’t love them so much, I’d have left them there or made them find their own way way home. You see, when you walk into that all girls’ school, they all look your way and god forbid they start to giggle. You can feel them…

#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?
