Good morning friends, I have been mostly involved in the BLOGGING FOR MONEY workshop organized by my hubby since Monday, reason for the incommunicado. More importantly however, I chose my first post today to acknowledge a major landmark in my blogging career yesterday, as My blog crossed the 2,700 Feedburner Telenovela Subscribers count.
This is worthy of mention and celebration for many reasons. Exactly this time in November 2006, 12 months ago, I crossed the 700 subscriber level. So, in twelve months, additional 2,000 subscribers have joined our telenovela family in this love garden.
I know of so many big names in the blogging profession internationally, who don't even boast of 800 subscribers. So, we have tried in our community here. Why this landmark is significant is that, this is a level that makes more money comes your way as one can easily monetize the Feeds. It is also significant to have almost 3,000 readers subscribing to our feeds daily. That is a sure authority to the money-spinning advertisers to come negotiating with us. (LOL).
May I use this opportunity to share this glory with you lovers of telenovela in this love garden. THANK YOU! This feat is impossible without you, and your marvelous prayers, comments and encouragements. Thank you again, and again. I am indebted to you, right from the days of the Gardener's daughter (la hija del Jardinero), to Esmeralda, to Catalina y Sebastian and now, to El cuerpo del Deseo (Second Chance). Thank you again for your loyalty in building this love community, with your steadfastness and loyalty. Thanks to my brother webmaster, Seun Osewa of Nairaland.Com who stood by us and popularized us at our teething period last year.
Let me also say a big thank you to all our 'students' in the BLOGGING FOR MONEY class (both graduating and current). I particularly thank the 14 people in the last one week who have subscribed to the ONLINE Version of the BLOGGING FOR MONEY Course, led by Josephine Ozeigbe, Bose Adegoke (U.K), Abiola Semiat and others, you are all our inspirations. You did the 'impossible' by taking the workshop from the classroom to the web. I am grateful to you all.
I would resume posting snippets either later today or tomorrow. If you want to subscribe to the Telenovela love garden, so you can receive the daily snippets hot, this is the link to subscribe by email, do so now.
If however you are interested in the BLOGGING FOR MONEY Course Online, it is TEN Thousand Naira Only. Send me a mail at Philomena@telenovelastories.tv and I would send you payment details.
Good news is also coming from in Lusaka, Zambia, as this "blogging prophet" has honor both at home and abroad. We are being invited by netpreneurs in Southern and East Africa to come and conduct the Blogging For Money Workshops over there very soon.
Also, a big news media from California, USA, is scheduling an interview with me, to come and talk on the secrets of Telenovela Blogging, and how I became the number one telenovela blogger in the world.
I pray that the God of the eleventh hour shall appear in your situation too, and He shall give you the last Laugh, which is the best laughter at the "12th hour" (December). Why? because what you all made happen for me, God would make happen for you too manifold!
