It all started back in May 2017 when a person very close to me told me that I had a way with words and that I should continue writing that ‘men stuff,‘ and maybe one day I could blog and make Money for my kid’s school fees.
Well, I didn’t take what he said seriously at the time until I did a post on ‘MAFISI’ and one of my friends, a journalist, did an article on it and it was picked by three major Radio stations.
For this and many other posts that I did, I was told by many that I had good content and that I should start blogging. I remember a person very close to me saying that maybe it’s my calling to advise people as ‘Dr. Shiliz’.
My kids father also kept pushing and would ask me on a daily basis why it was taking me so long to do a blog.
Then there were people plagiarizing my work i.e. copying and pasting my updates on Facebook, and taking credit for it. There were also those that would share my updates either as screen shots, using the share button or just copying and pasting, with my permission.
There was also that group that kept asking me to write a book and that they were ready to buy it. Not forgetting the many that direct messaged me asking for relationship advise. The funs that loved and encouraged my work on Facebook. And of course my mum who saw my content everywhere other than my page and would say, ‘people are copying your work. Do something!!’
Thanks to all the people mentioned above and the fact that I really enjoy writing and giving an opinion to just about anything, I started researching and studying about blogging. I would also look at blogs that I admire most, both local and international. Thanks to my mentor, I started working on a blog with the help of an IT expert.
We then took three of my famous updates from Facebook and backdated them to the time i had posted them in order to get an idea of how the articles would look from the readers view. They are as follows:
I present to you SHILIZ.COM I hope my two cents will make sense, encourage, motivate, help, educate and entertain.
