Good day Sir, please kindly introduce yourself to our community. (Education, State of origin, family background, business, project or whatever you would like us to know about you)

I am Allen Elochukwu, Popularly known by my Moniker as “Elochi”, the founder and CEO of ElochiBlog. Currently, a Statistics/Computer Science Student at the Federal University of Technology Owerri, Imo State (FUTO).

I’m from Abia State, Nigeria; but I have spent all my life basically in Onitsha, Anambra State; living with my parents. I’m a passionate tech blogger and an aspiring entrepreneur.

Apart from being a blogger, Am also a Computer Engineer and a Networker, I do spend most of my time reading and learning Online.

Tell us about your startup, Elochi Blog.

I started my blogging Career in the year 2016, October 2016 Precisely. With so many business ideas, capital and time to kickoff, I decided to focus more on blogging first. I got to start up this blog due to the much love and passion I have for it.

ElochiBlog was a platform I created so as to share most of my blogging skills and providing solutions to any tech-related problems.

How long have you been into it?

I started my first personal blog in the year 2016 before moving to ElochiBlog, have been into blogging for more than a year now.

How did you get the idea for the Platform? What inspired it?

What inspired me most in starting up a blog was my quest in building and growing my authority online. I was keen on learning new things online so I decided to set up a platform where I can also teach and reach out to people who are willing to learn as well.

Before creating my own blog, I do share and provide my friends with the latest current news about Schools & Education, Admission guides and information and also solving some Tech related problems for them.

After a while, I noticed my fans are now growing so I decided to start up a blog in other to reach out more people globally.

How did you choose the niche(s) that you have chosen to blog in?

Yes, I came about this niche because I found out that I am good at it, even before starting my blog, I had always been a tech geek with my knowledge in both computer aspect and networking. Furthermore, I got to improve my skills by learning new things online.

This technology niche is indeed a vast niche of which being a tech blogger doesn’t require you to post or update your readers all the time, unlike the entertainment niche.

I just love it because it’s more like providing solutions to any user that gets into your blog.

However, I blog basically on Technology News along with basic Blogging Tips so as to help people start up and manage their own blog.

Why did you start this blog? Money? Passion? Hobby?

Wow, I must say that I started this blog for so many reasons. First, I started it as a hobby and as a platform to improve, share and document some of my skills. Also I had a great passion for it.

I did not have money in mind when I started blogging because I was doing something I was passionate about and actually enjoying the response I was getting.

However as time goes on I discovered it could also be a good source of income in the long run.

What were your challenges starting your blog?

Time and Constant Power Supply; these has being my major challenge starting my blog. Mostly when am in school, I find it difficult to update my blog because of no much time and power to keep up my devices on regularly.

Nevertheless, I got to schedule my daily activities, giving me the edge to write and schedule most of my posts in the night before dawn. Also get some alternative gadgets so as to keep my devices on at any time.

What can you really say as being unique about your blog?

Oh yes I can say this, branding has been my utmost goal ever since I started blogging. I have this great taste of special designs and tweaking of which led me into tweaking my blog layout to my taste.

Most bloggers and my blog visitors feel at home when they land on my blog and give much appreciation remarks for the designs I gave to my blog.

Still working more on increasing the standard so as to become an outstanding in my niche.

Did you receive any professional assistance or did you created your blog yourself?

I created my blog myself, design to my taste and do the other blog settings.

Do you have people working for you or you do it alone?

For now, I do it alone. Thou time factor seems to keep me away but I always try my best to keep it real, up and running every day.

However, am looking forward to getting a team in due time.

 What sacrifices have you had to make to be where you are right now?

Indeed it’s not easy at a start; a lot of sacrifices have been made. I can say work has been the major sacrifice because my blog is my business.

Also, I try to invest all and much of my time so as to keep it up and running even at this point.

I do sacrifice some hours of my sleep reading, making research and learning new things online so as to improve my skills and bring out the best on my blog.

Moreover, I was so much fast in learning and with that I came to build the connection with individuals in my industry making me an outstanding in my niche.

How do you manage time to run your blog efficiently?

I try my best to schedule my daily activities so as to meet up with time. Mostly in school, I blog at night, by scheduling my posts to auto-publish on my blog and this has really been helpful.

My niche is not demanding and doesn’t require me to always publish. So I publish at any time I feel comfortable without pressure.

Can you name some of your favourite bloggers and explain why they are your favourites?

Well, there are numerous to mention. Brian Dean of Backlinko has been the man I so much adore, it is not easy. His SEO techniques and articles have really helped me so much, his valuable contents and articles have grown me into being an SEO Enthusiast.

Prosper Noah is another inspiring blogger, founder of TipsOnBlogging. He equally provides good content both on his blog and facebook profile.

Prosperity Kenneth is also one of my favourites, the guy is just good both in his SEO Tips and contents on his blog.

Matthias Amodu, Prince John, David Chisomeje,  Chijioke Godson, Alvin Uchenna, Victor Onyekachi, Onuoha UI, all these people are phenomenal. There are many others too.

What company, individual, or business do you look up to?

In this case, I can say I am looking up to my creator first. The only supreme being.

I look up to see my blog as one of the great popular brand like Lindaikeji, Ogbengeblog, Backlinko and the likes.

 What are the best Nigerian blogs you visit almost everyday?

I do check out on top Nigerians tech bloggers and those within my niche, mostly for blog commenting. At least leaving my comments on 5 to 7 blogs each day, this helps to build your mutuality with your fellow bloggers and as well brings about more ranking to your blog.

 Who has been your greatest inspiration and also key role players in your life?

My greatest inspiration has always been from my Parents. Indeed they made me what I am today, they made me know that I can make things happen even if others have tried and failed.

Dad will always tell me, Son, keep on hustling, you will make it one day. While Mom will tell me to quit lying around waiting and depending on people when you can actually make things work for you.

My roomies at school have also inspired me as well. They influence one to become as successful as you can get.

 Do you consider yourself successful right now? What’s your view of success as a person and as a blogger?

To me, I can say that am always successful, but for now, I will consider myself successful in the blogosphere industry once I look around myself and see that I have influenced a lot of people positively.

Currently, I am still working towards becoming that successful person I wish to be.

 What do you enjoy so much about blogging?

The fact that I put in my ideas and skills down to share to a more global audience and the positive response I do receive from my readers is very encouraging and makes me enjoy every moment spent blogging.

 What are your plans to take your blog career to the next level?

As an aspiring entrepreneur, I have been planning on taking my blog public to the next or higher level probably on the online stock trading so as to affect more lives.

This might sound strange, but that has been my major plans.

 Bloggers today are so much concerned about making money from their blog. How can a new blogger in Nigeria start making money from his or her blog?

Indeed, the sole aim of every blogger is to make money from his or her blog. But I don’t recommend this for any new blogger.

As a newbie blogger first you have to build your trust and reputation with your fans and visitors. By providing them values and freebies when they visit your blog.

However, you can start making money from your blog by offering some online services, selling of products, Advert placements, affiliate marketing and so many others.

 What does entrepreneurship mean to you? Aside from blogging, do you have other things you do like selling products, having a business or brand etc?

I can say entrepreneurship is just the ability to be independent on your own, thereby setting up some business ventures so as to make more profit in the long run.

Indeed I have the vision to become a great entrepreneur and to make my brand known all over the world.

Aside from blogging, with my knowledge and skills as a computer engineer, I go about rendering services to my clients both at home and in school. With this, I can tell you that living a life of an entrepreneur keeps me going.

What do you think are the major challenges as an entrepreneur in Nigeria? I believe there are many challenges pertaining to that, like capital, lack of mentorship, lack of motivation.

I think the issue of capital can’t be overemphasized; there are so many banks, individuals and organizations willing to loan or invest in any good business.

Mentorship also is a challenge, when there is no one guiding you, no one pushing you forward, no one checking your plans then you can easily lose focus. Get a good mentor today, seek to him/her and learn more from him/her.

Lack of motivation; here in Nigeria, most aspiring entrepreneur don’t have much motivation concerning their goals. You need to be self-motivated so as to prove you are really an entrepreneur

What three pieces of advice would you give to university graduates/undergraduates who want to become entrepreneurs?

Firstly, I recommend you always write down all business ideas as they come. Yes, you never knew which one that will sell better in the long run.

Secondly, get yourself a good mentor. Somebody who is greater than you in the business and has been successful in the same field as yours can be your mentor.

Thirdly, you have to keep pushing until you reach the level you have always dreamed of.

When will you say, “Yes, ElochiBlog is successful”?

Still working on making it successful, once it becomes a major popular brand known in the public, then I will say Yes, ElochiBlog is successful.

 Do you have any specific goals to be achieved for the rest of this year?

Oh yes, I have a lot of goals here but unfortunately the year is already up. One of my goals is to see my blog contents ranking among the top 10 list on every search engine page.

Trying my best to optimize all my blog posts so as to gain more organic traffics from search engines. Wish to achieve more in the next coming year.

Do you normally set goals you want to achieve each year for your blog?

Actually, I do flow along with whatever the year has for me.

What do you advise anyone who wants to venture into Blogging in Nigeria?

Starting up a blog in Nigeria is not really a big deal once you have the passion, vision and focus. Hence, it gets tougher if you don’t build your authority and audience very well.

Almost all blogging niches has competition now. So, for one to rank higher or outshine your competitors, you need to provide 101% values to your visitors. Build your audience and trust with them.

Get a nice user interface and a responsive mobile version for your blog so as to keep your visitors longer on your blog and such tends to bring them back.

 

Also note: blogging goes with passion, blog on what you have the passion for and then see your visitors turning into money in due time.

What are the inspired words you have for our readers?

One should not sit at home and wait for the government to provide jobs. Also, waiting for a big company to call them for an interview. The internet is full of opportunities but please avoid quick money schemes, they will ruin your life.

My major advice to most internet geeks and new bloggers is this when starting up an online event or platform. First, grow your audience on time before launching it, start building your audience in three months’ time before anything, reach out to people and let them know about it.

For bloggers, after creating your blog, try building your email list using any of the online tools like MailChimp, mailmunch, sumo etc. by providing freebies for your visitors.

One thing I adore the most is Branding, (Your Brand is Yourself). The way you are is the way your blog will look like, so as a blogger, you need to make your brand unique.

The best tips ever I can say is this secret “TEAMWORK” many top bloggers won’t tell you this, but this has been their secret. For every successful blogger, this has been their secret to success.

You need a team to make it big in the future; you can start alone for now, in due time try to seek for more hands so you can blow in the blogosphere industry.

Everyone is blessed with a talent, find yours, some are good in the camera, they will do well on Instagram and Youtube, some are good in the voice so they can open a podcast. And some are like me, too shy so we have a blog.

Find your strengths, your passion and work with it. Chase excellence, provide value and the money will definitely come.

Lastly, we believe success is not a straight line. What do you think can motivate persons to achieve success in life?

Focus and Determination have been the bedrock of success. Believe me, you have to be strongly focused and determined, else you will miss your target.

Consistency is another thing that counts, for you to be successful, you need to be consistent and avoid the hit and run.

Now for you to be always motivated, you need to surround yourself with those on the same mission with you.

Since my career in blogging, 60% of my friends are mostly bloggers of which I tend to learn very fast from those who have made it big in the industry.

I go about reading their success stories and then pick some valuable tips and add to my life.

How can readers of this blog get in touch with you?

You can always find me here on ElochiBlog, or get in touch with me via the following channels:

Facebook

Instagram

Twitter.

An Interview With a Dating and Confidence Coaching, Eddy Baller

Eddy Baller confidence coaching
Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.

Today, our exclusive interview is with an expert from Canada. He is an expert on dating and confidence coaching and advanced social skill with at least 6 years of experience. Mr. Eddy Baller shared his experience so far and discussed how to help men to be confident to approach women.

You can’t afford to miss this amazing interview session with Eddy Baller as he discussed tips on how men can overcome shyness when it comes to approaching ladies for dating and vice versa.

 Hello, please kindly introduce yourself to our community. (Education, State of origin, family background, business, project or whatever you would like us to know about you)

I’m from Vancouver Canada, love to travel, and have a passion for learning skills which can improve my life and the lives of others.

Tell us about your startup, Dating and Confidence Coaching?

My business is about helping men to become confident with women and in life. Too many guys are confused about their roles because of modern ideologies and don’t know how to be men.

How long have you been into it?

I’ve been coaching for 6 years.

How did you get the idea for the Platform, dating and confidence coaching? What inspired it?

This business was never planned. I started working on myself, and in particular, had an interest in dating. I realized that what I had learned was teachable. I also realized that I could improve my own skills by teaching it.

Why did you start this coaching career? Money? Passion? Hobby?

It was mostly a passion for women at the time but it has evolved into something that focuses on making better men.

Do you have people working for you or you do it alone?

I contract certain things out.

Who has been your greatest inspiration and also key role players in your life?

Arnold Schwarzenegger has been my greatest inspiration. He’s done so much in his life and has been successful in all of it.

What are your plans to take your coaching career to the next level?

I’ll be offering online programs and masterminds to help a larger number of men.

As an expert who specializes in overcoming shyness and social and advanced social skills.  How do you think men can overcome shyness when it comes to approaching ladies for dating?

It’s very simple. Guys have to go out and talk to people. We can’t develop social skills by keeping to ourselves or just hanging out with people we already know. It’s important to do things which make us uncomfortable so that we can overcome our fears. Of course, being simple doesn’t mean it’s easy. That’s why guys come to me, so they can get training from someone who’s already done it and has helped other men do it.

What do you think are the solutions to problems facing women who are shy and inexperienced with men?

Just like shy men, shy women need to put themselves in social situations which make them uncomfortable.

What do you think are the ways men can crush personal obstacles to become the favorite that women cherish and adore?

Create a routine and build up positive habits. Also, eliminate bad habits. If you watch Netflix every morning that’s a bad habit which will demotivate you. Instead, replace it with a 20-minute walk, a workout, or a personal development video or audio. Most obstacles are crushed bit by bit by creating positive habits.

What do you think are the things women can improve to make them attractive to any man?

Style and fitness are the two main things. Men are attracted to looks. Learning to smile works too.

RELATED POST: An Exclusive Interview With A Nigerian Upcoming Python Programmer And Blogger.

How to solve the problem of unhappiness in a relationship (for both men and women)?

Look at your partner’s good qualities and don’t focus on the negative qualities. Appreciate them for who they are right now without trying to change them because of their flaws.

What are the inspired words you have for our readers (single or married about their relationships)?

Live long and prosper.

Lastly, we believe success is not a straight line. What do you think can motivate persons to achieve success in life?

People have to motivate themselves. Too many people are looking for some magical inspiration instead of doing the hard work which is required to make life meaningful. Stop thinking and start doing. Action creates motivation.

For any men reading who want to take action, they can go to https://www.conquerandwin.com/ to learn new skills and mindset which will help them get good with women.

The man sees as the future python programmer within few months of blogging experience he has already made names for himself. The future python programmer is Rapture Chijioke Godson the brain-box behind Cool Python Codes Blog.

Cool Python Codes was founded by Rapture Chijioke Godson, an internationally recognized Python developer, and blogger. He began to teach Python around 2014 and created Cool Python Codes to learn the lessons he learned.

Since launching Cool Python Codes in 2016, Godson has established his name so fast by publishing cool Python projects for beginners in his tutorials.

Cool Python Codes is now one of Python’s most popular and recognized programming blogs.

Rapture Chijioke Godson, the future python programmer has a lot to say about himself, the experience so far and the blog. Enjoy the interview.

1. Good day Sir, please kindly introduce yourself to our community. (Education, State of origin, family background, business, project or whatever you would like us to know about you)

I am Rapture Chijioke Godson, a tech blogger, programmer and a Chemical Engineering student of the University of Port Harcourt.

I’m from Imo state, Nigeria but I have spent all my life in Port Harcourt, Rivers state. I love topics on entrepreneurship, Christianity, SEO, Email marketing, Social Media Marketing etc.

Am also a Redditor.  For the moment, am doing my six-month internship.

2. Tell us about your startup, Python Programming?

Cool Python Codes started in my apartment at school last year, November 2016. It is a platform where I share what I have learned in Python programming. I also interview experts for them to share their insights on some Python-related topics.

3. How long have you been into it?

Well, just one year.

4. How did you get the idea for the Platform? What inspired it?

Whenever am through with my exam, I would play games and watch movies with my geek friend.

But my brother’s friend, when we are playing and watching movies, he would be on his system typing. He won’t join us to waste our time and this made me curious.

What the heck is this guy doing?

I asked him what he does and he said that he is a blogger.

This was my opportunity and I had to grab it. I wanted him to teach me and he did that willingly.

  1. How did you choose the niche(s) that you have chosen to blog in?

My friend told me I need to blog in the area I am good at and that’s why I blog about Python programming.

6. Why did you start this blog? Money? Passion? Hobby?

I started my blog for many reasons.

First, blogging enables me to document my knowledge in Python programming. I still refer to my tutorials anytime I have challenges in a project.

I don’t only document my knowledge, but I learn more on a particular topic. A lot of programmers have corrected me in my tutorials.

For example, my last tutorial on Object-Oriented programming, I was criticized a lot. I was trying to make the tutorial simple for beginners which I didn’t achieve. Now, I have to go back to the drawing board which allows me to learn more and more.

Documenting my knowledge has been helpful to me and I suggest to everyone if you want to know more about a subject, blog about it.

My friend paid his tuition fees through blogging, so I intend making money and become influential through blogging.

7.  What were your challenges starting your blog?

Cash has been the major issue. With little to no cash coming in, and without a paying job, I find it difficult.

But when there is a will there is surely a way. I want to use this opportunity to thank my mom for having faith in me by supporting me financially.

Also, getting backlinks to rank my blog is a major challenge hence resulting in the low organic traffic.

8. What can you really say as being unique about your blog?

I also interview other top Python programmers.

  1. Did you receive any professional assistance or did you created your blog yourself?

Most of the assistance was provided by my friend. He told me to follow guys like Brian Dean, Neil Patel, Social Media Examiner(for facebook/ social media marketing). He also helped me set up my blog, Email marketing campaign etc

I get my assistance from Andrew Asibor’s Whatsapp group.

10. Do you have people working for you or you do it alone?

My brother helped me do my logo, but the rest work is done by me. As a lean start-up, I don’t have the funds to hire people.

11. What sacrifices have you had to make to be where you are right now?

Work is the major sacrifice. I also sacrifice some hours of my sleep. I also read a lot and build the connection with individuals in my industry.

  1. How do you manage time to run your blog efficiently?

I mostly blog when school is not in session. I wake up as early as 3 in the morning, work till I have to eat, do some clean-up and I am back to work.

Also, I sleep around 12. I basically work all the time.

  1. Can you name some of your favourite bloggers and explain why they are your favourites?

14. What company, individual, or business do you look up to?

I think question 13 and 14 would have the same answer.

Well, they are numerous to mention. I respect Promise Excel for having no advert on his blog. It is not easy and he provides valuable contents both on his blog and facebook profile.

Alvin Uchenna is another inspiring blogger.

Onuoha UI is an awesome guy, though he is not a blogger, however, you have to follow him on facebook.

I respect Emenike Emmanuel for attracting big names in the blogging community to even guest post on his blog

Umar Farouq, David Chisomeje, Precious Ngwu, Andrew Asibor, David Akinwale all these are phenomenal. There are many people too.

15. Who has been your greatest inspiration and also key role players in your life?

The list of inspirational people in my life are numerous.

My Dad has been one of the biggest inspiration including my mom.

Uzo, my friend, and reading partner has inspired me much.

The rest are Dr. Eric Thomas, Robert Kiyosaki, Tony Robbins, Michael Jordan, Steph Curry, Les Brown, Muhammed Ali, Jim Rohn,

16. Do you consider yourself successful right now? What’s your view of success as a person and as a blogger?

Am always successful. To me, there is the micro and mega success.

Micro success is the little success you achieve every day by working on your goals. People don’t see this type of success.

Mega success is when people start talking about you like Linda Ikeja, and you become viral like an epidemic.

For now, am achieving micro success, the ones you can’t see. The daily work I do every day that will eventually pay off one day.

An achievement does not need to be big to be called a success.

17.  What do you enjoy so much about blogging?

The pen in the 19th  century, the pen was mighty than the sword, but in this century, a blog is mighty than the pen because you can reach more people all over the world.

Being able to share your ideas with many people is want I enjoy doing.

18. What are your plans to take your blog career to the next level?

I want to be an entrepreneur, am thinking of taking my blog public on the stock exchange market.

I know it sounds crazy, or impossible but that’s my major plan.

  1. What does entrepreneurship mean to you? Aside from blogging, do you have other things you do like selling products, having a business or brand etc?

 I look at entrepreneurship in a different way from most people. I don’t see being self-employed, having a blog as an entrepreneur.

For me, creating job opportunities, or taking your business public is entrepreneurship. When you have created a system that keeps providing you money, without you having to work again if you choose to, that’s when I can say that you are an entrepreneur.

How can a blogger say that he is an entrepreneur when he depends on Google Adsense for his earning?

C’mon, create your products and start selling.

If you have a hair salon, try and create a franchise.

I know most people won’t agree with me.

  1. What do you think are the major challenges as an entrepreneur in Nigeria?

Generally, it is capital.

New challenges are getting attention. Nigeria is very populated and most people are not willing to pay for your services when it is of high quality and very expensive.

For an internet entrepreneur, I guess it has to be Paypal. Many go through the back door. I won’t say electricity is a challenge for an internet entrepreneur because Lumos (Solar company partnering with MTN) has provided a solution.

  1. What three pieces of advice would you give to university graduates/undergraduates who want to become entrepreneurs?

First:  School punishes students for cheating in a test, Life punishes you when you don’t have a team.

When I read the book, “The Richest Man in Babylon”, I learned you can’t be wealthy on your own.

You need to surround yourself with the right people. For example, Bill Gates worked with Paul Allen, Steve Jobs with Steve Wozniak.

Greatest can’t be achieved alone.

Second: School doesn’t encourage failing but Life encourages failure.

Don’t be discouraged when you mess up when no one turns up for your event after spending much on investing. Keeping grinding and learn from your failures and the failures of others.

Third: Be street smart.

Let me tell you the truth, you can be very smart with your academics, but when it comes to Life, you have to be street smart unless someone will take you out of business.

I don’t mean being fraudulent, I mean knowing the law, accounting, insurance, copyright policy, franchise etc.

If Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook wasn’t street smart, he could have lost facebook through a lawsuit.

In fact, I love Robert Kiyosaki and Robert Greene because they teach you how to be smart on the street.

22. When will you say, “yes, your Python Programming Blog is successful”?

When it becomes a major brand and when I take it public.

  1. Do you have any specific goals to be achieved for the rest of this year?

I want to rank number one for the keyword “Cool Python Codes”. A roundup post before the end of this year is also what am working on. I hope by the grace of God, I achieve them all.

  1. What are the inspired words you have for our readers?

They should not sit at home and wait for the government to provide jobs or for a big company to call them for an interview.

With Facebook, Instagram, YouTube etc you can survive and even help the less privileged in the society.

When I see a number of views Mark Angel gets on YouTube, I smile because I can estimate what he earns. And trust me; it is enough to pay his bills with extra cash for him to spare.

Don’t use your strength to help build someone’s empire, find something and do.

If you can cut hair, try and run Facebook ads to get more customers, this also goes for anyone with a skill.

Open a website, put up your services and do some local SEO on your website.

The internet is full of opportunities for wealth but please avoid quick money schemes, they will end you in serious trouble.

Please don’t follow the crowd, not because I have a blog or Mark Angel is into comedy, then you join us because of the money.

Everyone is blessed with a talent, find yours. Some are good on the camera, they will do well on Instagram and YouTube, some are good in the voice so they can open a podcast. And some are like me, too shy so we have a blog.

Find your strengths, your passion and work with it. Chase excellence, provide value and the money will definitely come.

  1. Lastly, we believe success is not a straight line. What do you think can motivate persons to achieve success in life?

That’s why I don’t like school. As an engineering student, your work becomes much easier when your problem becomes linear when you assume some variables constant or negligible.

In life, every variable counts and linearity is slimly possible.  In fact, when a man went to the moon, his journey was not linear, he had to make much adjustment.

To achieve success in life you need a strong way so that you can keep making an adjustment when you are not in the direction of your goal.

If your why or reason for success is not strong enough, you will miss your target and run out of fuel/drive and you become a statistics (the 90% that fail in life.)

Thanks for the opportunity given to this blog to interview you.

Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.

Interview With Rosy Omeje – An Award Winning Model, Freelancer, Computer Techie, PR, App Developer, Programmer and Blogger at http://www.rosymeje.com.

Today, SABTrends brings you another interesting interview with a wonderful Female Blogger. Rosy Omeje is not just a regular blogger but a vast one.

It is a great honor to meet this smart brain on the internet; I was privileged to meet her on facebook years back. She followed most of our posts. One thing I cherish about is that she will message me and say SABTrends adjusts this post or correct this sentence. I have also been following her posts for a long time because they are amazing posts.

Without talking too much, I believe that Rosy Omeje has great words for you and a lot to say about her career and hobby as a blogger.

Enjoy your time with our female blogger of the day.

1.   Good day ma, please kindly introduce yourself to our community. (Education, State of origin, family background, business, project or whatever you would like us to know about you).

Hello, everybody, the name is Rosy Omeje; I’m the sixth child in a family of seven and from Enugu state. I’m also a graduate of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka; and an aspiring entrepreneur. While growing up, I’ve always wanted to start and run my own business and I’ve really been working hard to achieve that.

2.    Tell us about your startup, RosyOmeje Blog.

With so many business ideas and little capital and time to kickoff. I focused on blogging for a start. Even though I started blogging just to improve my writing skills and pass time. I discovered it could also be a good source of income in the long run.

3.    How long have you been into it?

I started my first personal blog in 2013.

4.    How did you get the idea for the platform? What inspired it?

Before creating my own blog, I was helping others run theirs. I wrote articles for blogs like SliceReportsNg, PeopleNg, Mp3jam and some online magazines. After a while, I noticed people were getting interested in my articles and I decided that I needed to start my own.

  1. How did you choose the niche(s) that you have chosen to blog in?

I went ahead to create a blog and had no clue what I should do with it. So, I made it an e-diary where I made posts of my daily activities I find interesting. After a while, I included events happening around that are worth sharing and can teach lessons. I continued that for a while and at a point I started getting post requests from visitors who wanted me to get solutions to an issue or simply write my opinion about something. I picked my niches (actually it’s more than one) from the major requests I got and focused on them.

6.    Why did you start this blog? Money? Passion? Hobby?

I started it as a hobby and as a means to improve some of my skills. Also, I had passion in mind. I love writing unprofessionally and I’d almost no place to do that. I can also write professionally, but it could be boring and so I prefer writing with a personal touch. Every blog I wrote for wanted something top professional and I got bored and decided to do things my way and I started my own. I did not have money in mind when I started because I was doing something I was passionate about and actually enjoying the response I was getting.

7.    What were your challenges starting your blog?

Well, except deciding on a niche can be called a challenge, there was no challenge I can remember. Or, I’ll just say there was nothing that happened I can call a challenge.

8.    What can you really say as being unique about your blog?

The fact that I write mostly from personal experience and sometimes as things affect me is something I can say is unique. When I get a post request, before I even go online to make research about it, I’ll search within to know if I’ve had such experience. It makes it easy for me to write with a personal touch.

  1. Did you receive any professional assistance or did you create your blog yourself?

I created my blog myself. I never saw a big deal in it and had no problem starting and running my own.

10.  Do you have people working for you or you do it alone?

I do it alone. I have a lot of time and many post ideas that I really don’t see the need to get someone to help. At a point, though I considered getting someone to make posts, after a while of posting, I cut him off because I had to go through the stress of editing all posts just to add that personal touch. It’s also a good thing my niche is not entertainment or news where I’ll need more hands to help run it.

11.  What sacrifices have you had to make to be where you are right now?

The only thing I can call a sacrifice is using my feeding allowance to renew my domain at one point. Though I don’t regret that!

  1. How do you manage time to run your blog efficiently?

Like I said, I have a lot of time. Even when I was in school, I’d enough time to make posts and schedule to auto-publish on my blog for a period of time. My niche is not demanding and doesn’t require me to always publish latest/current events so I publish at any time I feel comfortable without pressure.

  1. Can you name some of your favourite bloggers and explain why they are your favourites?

I only have Mr. Olalekan Adebumiti as my favourite blogger. He runs many blogs and the one I’m quite familiar with is www.sweetlovemessages.com. He’s someone I really admire in the blogosphere. He’s really down to earth, encouraging and looks out for the success of everyone around him. He knows what he wants and goes for it. And he makes sure to push you towards your own goal and not hope for luck. He taught me a lot about perseverance in blogging and is the reason why I started appreciating my blog more than just a hobby or passion.

14.  What company, individual, or business do you look up to?

I’m only looking up to the Supreme Being.

15.  Who has been your greatest inspiration and also key role players in your life?

My greatest inspiration comes from my parents. My mum is someone I’ll always look up to. She’s this strong-willed individual that unconsciously influences one to become as successful as you can get. I won’t forget my dad who would always remind one to quit lying around waiting and depending on people when you can actually make things work you.

16.  Do you consider yourself successful right now? What’s your view of success as a person and as a blogger?

Well, everyone sees been successful in different ways. It could mean having lots of money for someone or attaining a level of freedom for another. For me, been successful is when I look at myself and people around me and smile knowing I’ve influenced a lot of people positively. Currently, I’ve not reached the level of success I want and I’m still working towards becoming that successful.

17.    What do you enjoy so much about blogging?

The fact that I can write without fear of having someone to grade me is enough to make me want to publish posts often. And also the positive response and vibes I receive from readers is very encouraging and makes me enjoy every moment spent blogging.

18.  What are your plans to take your blog career to the next level?

Depends on what you call ‘next level’. From my point of view, I’m already at the highest level I want to be right now.

  1. What does entrepreneurship mean to you? Aside from blogging, do you have other things you do like selling products, having a business or brand etc?

As an aspiring entrepreneur, I’ve always loved going into a full time business. I’ll be launching my own skin-care line as soon as I get all plans in place. I also have a brand which I plan to register as soon as I complete plans for my project too.

  1. What do you think are the major challenges as an entrepreneur in Nigeria?

Some people say funding is a major challenge but I think lack of mentorship is the number one challenge of being an entrepreneur in Nigeria. I don’t think money is ever a problem when we have banks, individuals and some organizations willing to loan or invest in any good business plan.

However, when there is no mentorship, no one guiding you, no one encouraging you or pushing you forward. No one checking your plans, one can easily lose focus, make wrong decisions, or even get frustrated by little things and tend to give up before going far. Many entrepreneurs I know directly or indirectly got discouraged at a point and only stayed there because there was someone there to urge them on and help them make better plans.

  1. What three pieces of advice would you give to university graduates/undergraduates who want to become entrepreneurs?

Write down all business ideas as they come. However, you never know the one that will sell better.

Look for someone successful in your field to mentor you.

Keep pushing till you reach the level you’ve always dreamed of.

22.  When will you say, “yes, RosyOmejeBlog is successful”?

Now! My blog is already as successful as I’ve wanted it to be.

  1. Do you have any specific goals to be achieved for the rest of this year?

A lot, and I’m scared the year is already coming to an end. I HOPE to start my skin care line and register my brand before the year runs out.

  1. Do you normally set goals you want to achieve each year for your blog?

No, I just flow with whatever the year has for me.

  1. What are the inspired words you have for our readers?

Whatever you do, be good at it. Approach it with the right mindset and don’t be discouraged even when you don’t get the desired result. It simply means you need to try harder. Be determined to do better and make sure you reach that target you set for yourself. Most importantly, be original and seek help from people who have been there before you. It helps define your goal and reduces peer or crowd influence.

  1. Lastly, we believe success is not a straight line. What do you think can motivate persons to achieve success in life?

I think success is a straight line. Having the right mindset, right source of inspiration and determination is enough to help you define your own success.
