You have probably gone through the internet and with the load of information available, you can’t seem to find where to begin.

I can help you with that.

I first heard about blogging in the early years when Linda Ikeji started trending. That was 2011 precisely.

I was confused about what it was or even how she was making so much money.


It has taken me over 10 years of mistakes and financial losses, taking countless online video tutorials to get here and I want to spare you all that time.

In this blog, I’m going to be detailing practical steps you should take from day 1 to publishing and running your blog.
