Please share about yourself and your story to enter in blogging?
To write on these, research had to be done and sometimes checks also had to be done to verify the information since information changes very often online. This resulted in interest being developed in the posts that were being shared just for help and not for reward. There developed a problem however. Spamming was being done on a wide scale by persons who were sharing links all over the place and in languages that were not immediately understood such as those from India, China and other parts of Europe. This led to some frustrations until I was able to find a plugin to take care of this and assisted me in clearing up the comments section of my blog. You see, the comments were nonsensical and did not provide and value to the blog nor the post to which the respondents were responding to. I also subsequently learned that most times these were being done by robots.
These did not prevent me from continuing but fortified my resolve to make a difference where quality was concerned.
How the idea to make your own blog came in your mind? How you found the right people to develop it and what big obstacles you faced?
It was kind of difficult at first not having the experience of creating a blog before so trial and error was used until I got the hang of doing it . One of the obstacles faced was what do I write and how do I begin to write. Another was how do I get images to enhance the pages and how to get them. Again, since the platform did not come with tutorials, it was a matter of trial and error.Then once successful, it was a matter of just pressing the 'publish' button.
Can blogging really change someone`s life?
The other is that you can use the blog as a business promoting goods and services thereby earning an income. Income can also be generated from advertisements placed by Google Adsense as well as by some affiliate sites. If you have these going for you then you really can work for yourself, at your pace and from home. This will definitely change your life by proving you with the freedom to do what you like when and how and not being bogged down by a 9-5 job

Mainlining the tasks are never easy and comes with discipline. I have to discipline myself and keep my focus. One way of doing this is to keep out family, friends and other distractions.
Blogging have different definition for different person. What is it for you?
For me I see blogging as a platform where various kinds of people from all walks of life, whether they have the same ideologies or not, conflate, and discuss the matters they think are important to them. It has become an important advertising tool for marketers who wish to promote their products online, for persons interested in making money online and for others who wish to sell their ideologies and reach out to the masses.
Which are your favorite blogs?
The reasons I have chosen these two are that they are both big sites with large readerships. They have somehow find a way to engage with the visitors to the sites and able to get them to leave comments, genuine comments. Their posts are interesting and relevant
How much time do you spend on social media promotion and SEO of your blog?
SEO would be done at the same time that the post is created and published using YOAST. The variety and frequency of the social media interactions would also lend to search engine optimization

Message for Readers:
There might also be an update to the information presented that the writer was not aware of and the post can be edited to include the update. The interaction is very necessary on many levels. If you just visit and leave no trace that you have visited then it makes no sense.
If you are a blogger, one of the advantages of this would be to have your blog visited by other readers because of the comments that you shared. Persons who use their blog for business would know that you visited because you acted on the call to action on the blog. Finally,
