.
A brief introduction of yourself

.
I am Adegoke Olawunmi, a graduate of Obafemi Awolowo University, proud Ondo babe and Quantity Surveyor by profession.

.

Since when have you been blogging?

.
I started blogging shortly after I came back from the mandatory NYSC orientation camp, June 2016 precisely.

.

What inspired your coming into the blogosphere? I mean starting a blog

.
Well for most of the time, I will say I am a writer and I love to write. I have always written in my jotter, phone pad, anywhere and read it to myself. But blogging is so different from just writing to me alone, its about sharing knowledge openly.

.
So how I started- I linked a friend who happens to be a web designer to get a web design job and afterwards he asked what I wanted in return, and I said, a website.

.
I got it and so blogging started for me. In my inner heart, i really wanted to start blogging,but didn’t know how to go about it.

.
What has blogging taught you?

.
Blogging has taught me to open my eyes and see the world differently, to pay more attention to things within and around me. It has also taught me to become very detailed as I know I am not just writing for myself, but for over 7.5 billion people in the universe, so I gottta watch what I write.

.

Who do you look up to in the blogosphere?

.
Bllogging is no child’s play at all,so I commend every blogger out there but i’ve got a couple of blogs I admire for different reasons:

.
Woman.ng-This blog just gets to my heart each time. I love the way the stories are told, the inspirations and life lessons, using day to day events around us and of course that’s where I met Yetunde Olasiyan . I love to model my blog after them.

.
Bella naija I love how they capture news, events and images. Bella naija just gives this home feel, I love how this blog is so full of life and positivity,and yes, I look up to them to learn how to make my blog welcoming.

.
Linda Ikeji’s blog- I love to know what’s up from time to time in a relaxed atmosphere. Linda’s blog just gives that; gossip,news,entertainment,events,anything. I look up to this blog to learn how to remain consistent in blogging, get people glued to your page and increase your traffic.

.

Where do you see your blog in the next five years?

.
Seeing my blog in the next five years, I would definitely have become a more skilled blogger,there is so much to achieve before 5 years. I would really enjoy living daily and achieving my personal goals.

.
Your blog is about inspirational and creative posts. Why?

.
My posts are always inspirational and creative because that’s the juice of life. People connect more with what inspires them, it stays long with them.

.
How do you generate content for your blog?

.
God has been gracious to me. It just comes naturally, when I open my eyes and mind, ideas flow in.

.
Do you sometimes worry about traffic?

.
Yes I do. I often check, check and check my blog from time to time to see activities on it. Sometimes, it feels like no one knows me or I am just writing for myself

.

Have you met other bloggers since you started?

.
Yes, I have met Jenneger.com( my blog coach), Yetunde Olasiyan, Chinnysmperio.com,Temitoria.com, I hope to meet more people too.

.

How often do you post? Are you a fulltime blogger?

.
Haaaa,I wish I could say full time blogger (covers face), but then I try to do at least a post weekly

.

Have you ever had an insultive comment on any post? If yes/no, how did/would you respond to it?

.
For now, I havent had any negative comment, but if I were to get one, I would consider what the person said carefully and see where I need to improve on, its criticism to me and I would rather convert it to some positive energy, moreso its someone’s opinion and he/she is entirely entitled to it .

.
Do you plan to retire from blogging?

.
Writing is life to me, its God special gift to me. It is more than just blogging, its a calling, and its my purpose.
