He headlined his write-up “Blogging as a trend in Nigeria

Blogging has come to stay, and has become an important part of my every day life. It is the same with many Nigerians though some choose to spend time scaming others, online. The number of Nigerian bloggers has been low over the years. Blog aggregators like is however giving such Nigerian bloggers a platform for sharing their views with the rest of the world.

If you write well, and regularly too, you are likely to have some following (readership), in no time.

So, what does is to share the headlines of your blogs to some more audience.

Well, I can only hope that Africa as a whole does not take too long to catch up with the rest of the world, in terms of technological development. We’ve been far behind for too long… 🙂
