Blogging was initially used as a unique way and much more engaging to share a person’s thoughts, feelings, opinions as well as experiences. Today people blog about anything and everything.
Blogging is an online journal or diary with little following. And as years goes by it has grown into a platform used by many, everyone from individuals to businesses.
Meet Namibia’s microblogger, Esther Eino aka Self.ff. a Namibian blogger. She started blogging just like that! It was a thought that popped up and she decided to share her creativity and ability to communicate through writing with everyone “Because I can”. Esther also says her peers also noticed the potential and encouraged her to start blogging.
Esther’s blog posts are broad and diverse. With her you can expect anything, she blogs about her day to day experiences, what’s trending online, you can also get some relationship advice in her blog posts how cool. Mostly she’d share posts of how she’s feeling creating a connection with the reader who might as well relate to the emotion or mood expressed on a specific day.
” I try to accommodate everyone in my blog post,” she says. She doesn’t stick to a specific gender when writing her blogs and her posts are for everyone, mostly the youth “That are going through life in a daily basis.” she adds.
When asked by Unwrap.online what her thoughts are of the Namibian blogging industry Esther says the blogging industry isn’t that big enough because Namibian people in general haven’t develop a reading culture. “Reading is really foreign to the average Namibian,” she adds.
As a blogger her plans are to branch out in sharing content on Instagram TV (IGTV) and YouTube as well.
How bloggers try to hook the readers attention,is through the creativity of their content. “Namibians are encouraged to embrace blogging to create greater visibility of the country to the outside world,”. These were the sentiments of Janet Faden, a Nigerian blogger, during a one-day workshop with students as part of of the World Press Freedom Day commemoration on May 7 2018.
