Wonderful Community I am in

It’s so blog-worthy how much new things you discover as you continue being a persistent member of this wonderful online community. I am happy not to have missed out.

Just a few days ago, I discovered that a blogger that I subscribed to via my bloglines feed had asked for bloggers living abroad and blogging for business to join her in showcasing their blogs!!! This was specifically for blog promotion. So fantastic!!!260 bloggers applied and they had a fabulous show!!! This is taking this community to the next level.

And of course another good news worth sharing is mi-lady Abbie winning the 2008 blogville idol. She is so fly!!! Congrats once again girl. I am so looking forward to SBR (Summer Bloggers Reunion). Hope Chari has not left me out in this so beautiful initiative of his.

I have also discovered some bloggers that are interested in using their blogs to advocate for different causes they are passionate about:
1. A new blogger that I hope will continue has chosen to blog about how women should learn self-defence for their own well being and protection.

2. “Children hawking” amongst other issues such as Gender issues, education, development, sustainable leadership, ethics and principles, change and sustainable development is the concern of another blogger. Powerful!!

3. Another blogger also wants to advocate for the rights of the children in Nigeria!!!

4. There is a new organisation combating epidemic diseases and educating women on some terrible diseases including TB and HIV in Nigiera and a wonderful lady put on this blog to talk about what her organisation is doing in Calabar.

5. Harmful widowhood practises are still far from stopping in Nigeria and a blogger wants to talk more about this issue and how to get it stopped.

6. I discovered a blogger that feels there is a need to talk about pre-marital sex (to do or not to do).

7. This next blog is all about African woman, her beauty, strength, courage, passion, of course her fears.

All these people are awesome. I trully wish them a fulfilling, interactive blogging moments in our very own blogville and beyond

There is a book I hope to buy soon, it’s an online book titled The Secret to Writing a Successful and Outstanding Blog” and it cost $29. I am sure I will be able to learn more and make my blog outstanding.

So much to know, so much to learn, so much contributions to make to this ever growing online community.

Yes, meet the 50 NxE’s (North x East) Most Influential ‘Female’ Bloggers. This is very interesting. I just wonder why there is no single black female blogger among them. I really know we have a lot of black female bloggers that are powerful and influential. Perhaps they are unknowing to this group yet or they need to do more research...

Hey, nice new picture you got there. Shame we can only see half your face. Blogging is big business you know. It shouldn't surprise you that some bloggers earn 6-digit incomes from blogging per year.
