RESPONSES TO QUESTIONS BY TANAKA:
- What gave you the push to start blogging?
In my first year of Campus, I shared an IST (computer) class with a college mate and we struck conversation. We always sat next to each other throughout the Semester and shared conversations. One time, we started talking about God and I discovered she was a Messianic Jew. We ended up talking more of our shared beliefs in Jesus and she mentioned of a movie she watched (God’s Not Dead) and reviewed it on her blog. That time I didn’t even know about WordPress! She explained how blogging works and when I checked out her site, I was impressed and I knew that I should start blogging. And thanks to her, that’s how I discovered blogging.
- Are you proud of the progress you have made so far, if not why?
To be honest, I never thought of it. For me when I started blogging it was more of a release than measurable goals to be achieved. But now that I have become more active than before I see that there are stats and numbers involved, lol. But discovering other bloggers and having that privilege to read their works is one of my greatest progress I would say I have made because I have grown, been encouraged, had a good laugh, empathised, been reinforced in my faith and discovered various perspectives. Regarding my posts, if it impacts just one person, that’s more than enough progress for me.
- Is blogging your profession or hobby?
Definitely a hobby.
- Where do you see yourself in the next five years?
Wow, probably globetrotting, mission work and running my business. But I may plan but God ultimately directs my steps, so I can never really be sure.
- What advice would you give to someone who wants to start a blog to make money?
I don’t think I am qualified to answer that, lol. But I would say love what you do, master it, then the money will follow. But what do I know?
- Where do most of your viewers and visits come from?
According to my stats the top 5 Countries are Kenya (my home Country), the United States, India, Nigeria and South Africa.
- What is your posting frequency?
I don’t have a set calendar but mostly at least once a week.
- Are you doing the most when it comes to fulfilling the demands of your niche?
For someone who believes there is always more to be done, I would be biased answering this.
- How many friends have you made from blogging?
I have met awesome people and I have interacted with a handful as friends (you are definitely among them).
- Do you ever regret any of your posts? If the answer is yes, why?
No, I have never regretted because most of my posts are faith-based and I never regret that aspect of me. In any case I hold it more tightly than anything else in life.
