What are your biggest blogging challenges?

- 1 comments
No blogger out there in the blogosphere could deny out rightly the fact that he/she has one form of blogging challenge or the other.

Blogging challenges cuts across from individual to individual and from newbie bloggers to pro bloggers, just similar way skills, special gifts varies amongst individuals.

One form of blogging challenge for Blogger A could turn out to be the blogging strength for Blogger B, and that is one of the major reason I decided to put up this post, so you can freely list some of your blogging challenges which can be strength to other bloggers, and by so doing you might just get the help you need to tackle some of your blogging challenges…“A problem shared, is said to be half solved
What are your biggest blogging challenges?

For some, their major challenges could be creating of catchy and engaging contents, whereas others will tell you that it is just how to drive the desired traffic to their blog.


But one thing I know is that traffic has remained one of the major challenges facing upcoming bloggers, but on the other hand, some pro blogger have been able to conquer traffic challenges and have succeeded in turning their blogs into honeycomb that attract swamps of traffic at any given point in time.

Whichever be the case, traffic and content are not the only challenges facing bloggers, as other different challenges abound in the blogosphere.

I conducted a recent study on a popular Facebook group, Bloggerslab that comprises of about 6000 + active members who are mainly bloggers, that saw many pro and upcoming bloggers dishing out their blogging challenges when a similar question was posed to members of the group by another member.

Elsie Godwin, who is a member of the group, in response to the question, said that his blogging challenges stems from time, internet, content and traffic, while another member hinged his blogging challenges as getting enough traffic to make his Adsense count, and some others had said that getting Adsense approval is their challenge.


Another notable member of the group, who goes by the name Olili Bob also mentioned traffic as his blogging challenge. Again, Muogbo Ifeanyichukwu Kingsley, also a member told the members of the group that Search Engine Optimization (SEO) has remained his nightmare in blogging.

Statistics taken, show that most of the bloggers cried out for increased traffic to their blogs as their main blogging challenges.
It was a bit of surprise to see only but few bloggers mentioned content creation as their blogging challenge.

But out of personal opinion and observation made, we saw the increase and proliferation of copied content (plagiarism) in the blogosphere, and it has made us to include content creation challenges to traffic as the two most common and biggest sources of blogging challenges facing many bloggers out there.


If content creation was not a major challenge, then the rate of plagiarized contents will be minimal contrary to our observation.

Now to tackle some of these problems, we are urging the bloggers out there that some of the challenges enumerated above turned out to be their strength, to use this opportunity in contributing or lending a hand, maybe by using the comment section to brief others on their strength which happens to be some form of challenges to others.

And they can also list out their blogging challenges too, which might in turn be others strength, and by so doing they could also get similar help. By so doing, the knowledge will go round and everybody will have something to learn and go home with.

Farewell Nokia, welcome Microsoft Lumia

- 0 comments
With deep feeling of nostalgia, we regret to announce the soon to be departed Nokia brand in the modern world of mobile telephony.

Yes, you read it right, the feeling of nostalgia is what greeted many Nokia fans at the news that Microsoft is finally about to rebrand it high end Nokia devices to Microsoft Lumia, implying that the name Nokia will soon be a thing of the past and will gradually fade into the thin air.

Nokia which once ruled the mobile phone industries and stood as king of mobile phone brand over a long period of time hasn’t had it easy at all in this recent times and highly competitive era of mobile telephony, where the likes of Google Android and Apple have decided to stamp stronger feet of authority in the present mobile industries and markets.
Farewell Nokia, welcome Microsoft Lumia

The stiffness in competition also saw Nokia being sold out to Microsoft sometimes in April this year in a deal that stood to the tune of $7.2billion which handed over Microsoft most of the Finnish company telephone assets.


On my own part, definitely it will be a great miss in the brand name Nokia, as one of the great fan of Nokia during the time of Nokia Symbian phones. And I think we can do absolutely nothing about that at this moment since the now rightful owners have chosen to rebrand Nokia into Microsoft Lumia.

The rebranding was made known at first in the recent removal of the Nokia brand on Microsoft France Facebook page, which saw all traces of “Nokia” replaced with Microsoft Lumia.

Now the information gathered so far is that, it seems the facing out of the Nokia brand will be done gradually and regionally, with France standing as the number one country in the order of Nokia face-out.

It is not strange to say that Nokia is not the only famous mobile brand to face what is currently happening to the once Finnish giant company, as other famous brand like Ericsson also faced similar fate in the past when there was a total buy out of Ericsson by Sony.

Again, recently, the rumour making the round is that the famous Chinese company Lenovo is on the verge of buying out the giant Canadian company Blackberry.

In this world of high mobile industry completion, any company that fails on its part to meet up or decide to lag in any way, immediately sees their competitor take advantage of the slip to reign over.

Finally, we cannot but still show our deep feeling for nostalgia to the Nokia brand by saying “Nokia, we will greatly miss you as you came in and change the mobile industry with Nokia as synonym to mobile telephony”.

How do you grow your blog?

- 0 comments
At the mention of how to grow a blog, it becomes almost clear that this piece is not to address expert bloggers but for newbie who are still searching for every available means to grow their new blogs. 

But mind you, pro bloggers can still grow their blogs too, for growing of blog has always remained a continuous process.

Many newbie bloggers today have always failed to understand that their new blog can be likened to a new born baby that needs nurture, care and all the necessary attention they require to raise them up gradually to maturity.

Until you understand the above concept, you will not be able to grow your blog properly in the right manner.

How do you grow your blog?

Blogging involves series of growth developmental phases, though sometimes I don’t really blame the newbie bloggers for just wanting to see their blogs turn springs of living water in few days of starting up a blog, because virtually every so called pro blogger today was in that same shoe with similar mind set at their early stage of blogging.


But my candid advice here, which I want you all to see as precious pearl is just for you to try and cultivate the habit of learning and implementation with patience. Since Rome was not built in a day, it is also wise to say that that your want-to-be rock star blog will not be built in a day.
Having said that, for you to grow your blog, you really need to treat it as a baby and give it all the necessary attention it desires.

Most times, I overhear newbie bloggers saying they want to monetize their new blogs with Adsense or other monetization means and I always laugh it off.

Truth be told here, even if I give you Adsense account with Google Ads for that your new blog, it might rather get you frustrated and can even make you think of quitting blogging on starting.


So it is completely useless at this point because you will not even be able to earn a withdraw-able amount, and neither will affiliate ads do you any good.

Before you should even think of monetizing your new blog by whatsoever means think first of how to grow your blog.

Then, how do you grow your blog?

Good question! I must admit. You can grow your blog simply by doing most of the necessary things that are required in nurturing a blog like choosing a proper and simple template design for an individual blog, creating original and good number of contents, building relationships and connecting with other bloggers, Search Engine Optimization (SEO) to grow organic traffic and growing your audience (blog readers/visitors) in general.


Call them the prerequisites for new blogs before thinking of monetization in any way, so there are no short-cut to the monetization stage. And you will agree with me that those prerequisites cannot be achieved in a day, not even a week nor a month, but months and some years.

You might want to ask me to give an estimate of the number of months before monetization, and I will like to say 6 months and above as answer to that question.

As I have continuously mentioned in this post that growing your blog involves treating it like a baby; give it good food (content), take it serious and work diligently on those prerequisite to grow it to maturity before thinking of monetization. In plant kingdom we say nurture it before thinking of harvesting the fruits from it.

The moment your blog is ripe or matured for monetization, you will know because you will get to see it clearly with your eyes.


There will be increased visitors, bounce rate will be low, Alexa ranking will be better, Google will be tempted to give you a page rank of 1 for a start, and you will notice increased engagement on your blog.

You can now see that it is not magic but a straight forward concept that if you do well, you will see your blog growth.

No need to be in a hurry, just know that ‘slow and steady always wins the race’. And by so doing, the moment you begin to monetize your blog, you will begin to see result almost immediately, other than when you crave to monetize at the nascent stage.

At this level now of your blog developmental stage, you will then begin to see your blog grow faster by the day and the cash begins to roll in to some reasonable extend. It continues growing that way as you work until the sky will no longer be your limit but a starting point.


Finally, just know that there is no set limit that a growing blog can attain; blog growth is a continuous process as far as you keep blogging it out the right way. In the real sense, every well-meaning blogger is growing his/her blog to the next level at every point in time, and I am not left out.

If you are happy with this piece, kindly use the comment box to express yourself or if you want to tell us the rate or level at which you blog is growing, we are all waiting to see below.

Innjoo Note: Innjoo next flagship device

- 0 comments
One thing is certain here, is that Innjoo, the makers of Innjoo smartphones has come to stamp their feet and throw up strong challenge in the emergent market for mobile devices.

Before now, Tecno, Infinix and later Gionee have been enjoying free ride on those markets, with Tecno appearing to be leading the race as the most pronounced and the company with the highest number of devices.

But since this line of modern mobile technology is mostly about competition, it will not be surprising to see a company spring out from nowhere with devices that can immediately turn force to reckon with in the business.
Innjoo Note

And that is exactly what we are currently witnessing in Innjoo. The other time, we told you of how Tecno could be in hottest soup as result of more companies now offering similar MTK devices even at more affordable rate.

Since we all know that one of the major reasons Tecno and their likes flourished well in those emergent market is mainly as result of low cost mobile devices, which the offer, whereas Innjoo that has it all too is offering theirs at the lowest of prices.


It all started with the Innjoo i1 to Innjoo i1s, then it was upped to Innjoo i2 and now injoo i2s which is the latest Innjoo device launched few months back and currently in the market.

Recommended: Will the current Innjoo range of smartphones threaten Tecno Mobile smartphones in the emergent markets?

Innjoo is seems not to be relenting and since they have their mission, which is maybe either to topple the likes of Tecno in the market or just to make the competition stiffer and also reap their own benefits at the long run, Innjoo again has a soon to be released device simple called the Innjoo Note with specs already made known.

The one feature of the soon to be released Innjoo Note that have already succeeded in keeping almost everybody talking about it is the un-hidden and tremendous improvement in battery capacity, which saw Innjoo taking a long leap from battery capacity of 1900mAh as present in the latest Innjoo i2s to a 3000mAh battery capacity in this upcoming Innjoo Note.

Since most of the countries in those emergent markets still have stable electricity power challenges, the Innjoo Note might just turn out to become the killer device that everybody in those areas have been waiting for, putting the power situating and the most likely low price that the device will be going for into consideration when it finally starts selling.

Android Dessert names (codenames) to date

- 3 comments
It might surprise you to know that since 2019, Google Android has adopted a sugary name in alphabetical order for each of the new release version for the Android Operating System (OS).

A friend once joked about it by saying that ‘it seems Google, the developer of the Android OS loves food so much’.

Personally, I know about those sweet names that Google has adopted to name each of the new releases of Android OS, but frankly speaking, it has never crossed my mind that they were done alphabetically and not until recently that I discovered that myself…..And I guess some of you might also be in the same shoe with me on that one.
Android Dessert names (codenames) to date

Apart from Android version 1.0 and 1.1, which were codenamed Alpha and Beta, the rest were codenamed with a dessert, sweet sounding names and were alphabetically done till date.
