Hello, my lovely readers I hope you had a restful weekend. Time flies when you are having fun, we are already in the third week of the AfroBloggers winter challenge. This week is Business and Technology week sit tight and let’s have some fun.
When I was in high school during the school holidays I used to write my stories in my notebook. When I went back to boarding school my little sister would tear off the pages or leave the book lying around. I had been procrastinating about creating a blog for some years but when I finally made the bold move I haven’t regretted my decision.
Blogging has introduced me to numerous creatives around the world and I always learn something new after reading different blog posts. Unlike writing your story or paper that can easily be misplaced or get torn my stories and ideas are safer on my blog and anyone who has access to the link of my blog can read my published articles.
Technology has enabled creatives to promote their work on social media and have a huge audience. Authors can now have virtual book launches on Zoom or other platforms with their readers who reside in different parts of the world.
Podcasters can upload episodes on their podcasts and the listeners can multitask while listening to an episode of their choice. One can watch an interview, documentary or a talk show on their favourite YouTube channel.
Musicians can have live concerts and entertain their audience although they cannot meet physically due to the COVID-19 restrictions.
If it wasn’t for technology we wouldn’t be having so much fun now reading blogs posts, listening to episodes on podcasts or watching the vlogs that are taking part in the AfroBloggers Winter Challenge.
Technology has been a blessing in the lives of creatives and I hope some creatives will agree with me😊
