In the interview below, my response to the questions are represented by YOU
2015/9/6 23:17 – Jenny Chisom: Tell me about your adventure with blogging
2015/9/6 23:37 – You: Blogging is a great thing i have learnt from my secondary school days. Though i have never been to anybody to teach me blogging but yet i have a boss who introduces me into it. Ayoola the person that introduced blogging to me then in my final year in secondary school is also a blogger now, but i don’t remember his blog address unless i contact him. I start blogging with so many platforms like wen.ru, wap9.com, wapka and some other blogging sites. After secondary school i proceed to computer engineering training where i obtain diploma in computer engineering and i open my first site. Fbquickstatus for users to update their Facebook via many apps like blackberry and so on. But during all these i don’t even know that there is a way to make money from blogging than the fact that am doing as part of what i love to do.
2015/9/6 23:38 – You: As at today i have been making waves by helping young bloggers in my little way
2015/9/6 23:50 – Jenny Chisom: Wow
2015/9/6 23:50 – Jenny Chisom: Great
2015/9/6 23:52 – Jenny Chisom: How did you start making money from blogging?
2015/11/6 7:39 – You: I earn from affiliate marketing, that’s major route to my online income.
2015/11/6 7:49 – You: I also earn from domain parking not until when bodis refuse to pay me some little dollars which make me to dump them for affiliate marketing alone.
2015/10/6 20:48 – Jenny Chisom: What kind of help do you render to bloggers?
2015/11/6 7:51 – You: I help the young blogger in the area of information about how to go with their blogs and at times i help them in designing their blogs and also give them a hope that they should not give up. I earn most of my incomes through this help as it builds my own trust in them.
2015/10/6 20:49 – Jenny Chisom: Do you think blogging can make positive impact in Nigeria? How?
2015/11/6 7:58 – You: Blogging can make an impact in our dear country for sure, i remember about a year plus ago when some bloggers were detained in a particular country. The crews are called #Zone9bloggers and almost for the whole period their name was trending on social media as a way of making it clear that they were innocence of what they were detained for. Likewise the Aljazeera staffs. Why that info is that if all the bloggers in Nigeria are taking blogging as a great job, as field and not just as a copy and paste blogger they the future of Nigerian blogger will be brighter than the moon.
2015/11/6 8:05 – You: Blogging can also make more impact in Nigeria if all our university teachers and other higher institutions can make the topic more interesting in class of learning. I remember when i was in my 200 Level in University of Ibadan, i was shocked to see blogging in my GES 201 course outline and all the time i always feel happy to learn something new from the course but i was disappointed not to have enough time for the course as it was an area where i have been longing to learn in the classroom setting.
2015/11/6 8:08 – You: So i believe if every students are given the orientation that every information they acquired from the search engines are piled up by someone like them than to believe that Google is master of knowledge then i believe that we can start to have a great invention from our ICT and students who blog.
2015/11/6 8:09 – Jenny Chisom: Wow…so great to know
2015/10/6 20:49 – Jenny Chisom: What is your blog about?
2015/11/6 8:18 – You: I have moved to different niche and drop them after a while because i discover that every niche have a time on its own to make some research, which i don’t have as a part time blogger. Now i just went back to my 2013 blog which is on tech when i discover that whenever i still search for some info from the internet i get my blog as a reference in the search result. This make me to think that i will have been more resourceful if i put all my help in the internet for people to access than teaching one person. I also discover that a blog that gives information like wiki still show us some info of over 5 year plus and they are still relevant so i quickly open back my old blog http://oworock.com and drop others
2015/11/6 8:19 – Jenny Chisom: Oh nice
2015/11/6 8:10 – Jenny Chisom: On your last point, so you advice students to also begin to put up their research information etsc. online creating their own library just like Google?
2015/11/6 8:24 – You: Yes i agree as it helps the next generation to have an insight of what our generation is like. If William Shakespeare could put his experience and knowledge into a paper and now become a course of study in the university then i believe my information can also be useful for 100 generations to come. So everybody should note that.
2015/11/6 8:28 – Jenny Chisom: Hmmmnnn so true
2015/11/6 8:20 – Jenny Chisom: What else do you do aside blogging?
2015/11/6 8:31 – You: I am a computer engineer at Oworock computers and also a special education student in the University of Ibadan, Am also a part time public speaker. And the founder of Oworock Empowerment an NGO.
2015/11/6 8:32 – You: I also belong to many NGOs as one thing or the other.
2015/11/6 8:39 – Jenny Chisom: Wow great
2015/11/6 8:40 – You: Thanks
2015/11/6 8:39 – Jenny Chisom: What inspired you to start your NGO and also study special Education?
2015/11/6 8:52 – You: I attended a main streaming secondary school where both the ‘ABLE’ and ‘DISABLE’ receive lecture in the same classroom setting. But though, during that period i don’t have the intention of studying special education but, to study Mass communications which led me to join the press club of my school then. But after spending many years at home after secondary school i discovered that i have become part of them i speak to the deaf, mobilized the blind and also played with the physical and intellectual disabled ones this led to the founding of Oworock Empowerment. Yet i don’t know that there is a course somewhere called special education until when i obtained my jamb form and discovered that there is a course that can make me more of what i am and love to be, then i applied for it and that’s how i started with my course.
2015/11/6 9:14 – Jenny Chisom: Wow
2015/11/6 9:14 – Jenny Chisom: Great
2015/11/6 9:15 – You: Thanks
2015/11/6 9:15 – Jenny Chisom: What is your advice to youths going by your experiences so far?
2015/11/6 9:16 – You: When we are still a youth then we are young.
2015/11/6 9:21 – You: I believe that as a youth we have many innovations running up and down our mind let us make good use of it because TOMORROW WILL NEVER COME so we have only yesterday for experience and today change. I remember when i was called to panel for opening a blog for my school, though the vision of the blog was aborted but my vision for blogging was challenged. After that now i still blog so every youth should not see today’s challenge as forever.
2015/11/6 9:22 – You: But a challenge to prepare for greater future.
2015/11/6 9:24 – You: To upcoming bloggers i believe that the blogosphere is wide enough to give you an insight of what you can do, so appreciate anybody around you.
2015/11/6 9:26 – You: I will also add this to the general, there is ABILITY in disABILITY so they should take everybody important.
2015/11/6 9:27 – Jenny Chisom: Thank you very much Oworock. You have been a blessing.
2015/11/6 9:27 – You: You are welcome.
