A blogger is anyone blogging. Even those posting on social media are bloggers in their own rights. Sometimes I refer to them as social media activists. I thought I was a blogger, my definition of a blogger was anyone who owns a blog and is actively in the business of blogging.
Serious bloggers command presence online. Many of them are opinion leaders and accomplished career people. LinkedIn refers to them as “influencers.” I also think they are influencers. Anyone who has had an exception career and is now retired, or is an expert in a particular field, should be a blogger. Some blogs that I follow include this one. You should have your own.
I spend so much time trying to find out which of the WordPress themes was the best for my blog. So after trying many of them I realized I just enjoyed the aesthetics of what a website is, and never about the content I created and the readers I influenced. The possibility of living in finances of becoming an influencer continue growing and I thought one day I would be like Koffi Anan, Richard Branson, Arianna Huffington or even Penelope Trunk herself. These are people I read their stuff.
I applied for google AdSense program and after three days I was kicked out. I hated seeing webpages on Kenyan blogs full of ads that irritated visitors. So I decided to create my personal blog to counter the poor service I got from Kenyan blogs.
