…And I am still moving forward and gathering more momentum!
From starting the blog in August 2013 to celebrating its 3 years of existence in August 2016, my blogging journey on JerryIhejirika.com has been fun, challenging, educating, exciting…And I’m not finished yet!
There are a lot to learn; from writing to blogging, from SEO to data analytics, from social media to digital marketing, from project management to career management, from webinars to podcasting, from affiliate marketing to information marketing, from course creation to entrepreneurship…There are just a lot of things to learn if you are to survive in the blogosphere.
In fact, blogging has made me a student of the online world. From reading contents to watching videos, from listening to podcasts to attending webinars, I try as much as possible to learn and practice one new thing every day. And it’s has been a wonderful learning experience.
Blogging has opened up my world. It has helped me improve my writing, thinking, creative, and entrepreneurship abilities. It has allowed connecting and tapping from the knowledge and experience of some wonderful people, online. Some have helped me become a better writer, a pro blogger, a more creative thinking person, a better project manager, an aspiring online entrepreneur. In fact, most of them do not know how much they have influenced my life.
Here are the names of some persons who have greatly influenced me the most on the internet within the past 3 years:
Jon Westenberg, Gary Vaynerchuk, Jeff Goins, Larry Kim, Tiffany Sun, James Altucher, Jeff Bullas, Srinivas Rao, Lolly Daskal, Thomas Oppong, Yann Girard, Elizabeth Harrin, Martin Chernenkoff, Mounir Ajam, Darren Rowse, Jon Morrow, Lindsay Scott, Gibson Okorafor, Caitlin Bacher, Melyssa Griffin, Taopheek Babayeju, Dave Wakeman, Robert Kelly, Peter Taylor, Mark Essien, and J.T O’Donnell.
The truth is that most of them do not know how much they have influenced me online. Some have influenced and inspired me through their writings, some through their online communities, some through their creative thinking, some through their comments on my contents, and some through their passion.
There are also a lot of other people who have greatly influenced me in the offline world but the names mentioned above are those who have greatly influenced me in the online world.
I am looking forward to learning more, connecting with more persons, building my blog and building my global network. And to everyone who has supported my blog so far, I want to say a BIG thank you!
