Shout Out to TBC Connect Blogger Guests

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to give a shout-out to some of the guests who attended TBC Connect! Quite a number of the guests were bloggers, and I thought it would be nice to holler at them, and give YOU an opportunity to visit their blogs.



To those who are just starting out, my advice would be "Have fun and be consistent." When you're trying to build an audience, it's important to be consistent, and continue putting out interesting content that your readers will come back for. It's also necessary to have fun. If blogging becomes more stress than fun, then I'm not sure you should be blogging in the first place.

And so... here are the wonderful bloggers who came to show us some love over the weekend.

NEDOUX - She got there first!!! And she's such a sweet soul. And she's a "Sewista." Think about the word Fashionista... someone who likes fashion... she likes sewing.

EBONY DUCHESS - She enjoys sewing just like Nedoux but wants to be (or already is) a Fashion Designer.

DAVID ADELEKE - He has a personal blog, but also contributes to a Tech Blog. Is it me or are there more female bloggers than male?

DIARY OF A FASHION ENTHUSIAST - She wanted to win ALL the giveaway items :p. She's a very nice girl though, and she ended up winning the box of cupcakes because it was her friend's birthday.

IFY HALIM - She also writes for Connect Nigeria. And small world - her mum is one of my aunt's friends, and was at my wedding :)

LIFE'S TREASURY - Uju is an Inspirational blogger, and also a motivational speaker. She writes and shares inspiring and positive posts so others can learn and shine!

IN SEARCH OF PERFECT HAIR - Also named Uju, she says if you visit her blog and leave a comment, it's like coming to her [online] house. Which is inspiring a blog post from me later this week, btw. Oh, and she was recently called to bar. Congratulations!

AKA GLUE - Amaka runs a blog about personal finance and being thrifty. Aka Glue is a play on the Igbo phrase, 'Aka gum" that means tight-fisted. Fun fact - I met her during the TW Fitness Challenge 2 years ago and we've remained friends.

TONYE IGBANI - Guess what? She's a builder!!! She broke down the difference between architects and builders. I seriously just assumed the architect was in charge of designing and getting structures built. DOH!

MIRA LA BELLE - Ijenna is studying Physiotherapy, but is also a Fashion Blogger and Photographer. I think her blog persona and her real-life person are so different!!!! She's pretty quiet in real life, but seems to just need a little nudge to open up. Meanwhile, on her blog she's very fierce!

Thanks to Tuke for reminding me of some of the blog names. If I forgot to put your link, please send me an email [berrydakara@gmail.com] so that I can update the post. I'm pretty sure I'm forgetting one or two.

  2. :D Already visited the blogs I could remember. *covers face* You were really paying attention. I am actually the same way in real life but I'm also sort of socially akward. As for being a photographer, make that "Wanna-be photographer" :)

  7. Gracias Berry :)

    Yeah, I think there are more female bloggers. Why? I can't say. But I'm pretty sure the blogosphere needs more guys. I was the only male blogger at TBC Connect. Choi!

    1. De nada David!

      More guys ARE needed - especially in Nigeria. I think the guys are mostly centered on tech, sports, news, satire...
