  3. Greetings from the God of the city of God of Almighty. Good work sir. Sky is your starting point.

  4. I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

    • Yemi, so glad you stopped by. I’m glad you had something to learn from the blog and thanks for your comment. I do hope you would be back next time. Cheers 🙂

  8. Howdy! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask. Does running a well-established blog like yours take a large amount of work? I am completely new to operating a blog but I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

    • I must say it takes a lot of time and discipline to keep a blog running. The most important thing to note is: what do you want to write about and how frequently do you want to write? Once this is answered then other things can follow. All the best!
