Meet Dwain Lucktung- as Promised!

20 Nov

I had observed him with keen interest in the last days of the Mali Youth Summit as he updated the world on what was happening at Bamako. I couldn’t help but ask for some time with him to coach me on blogging. I interrupted his swim time with the rest of the team and I couldn’t believe he was sitting next to me, equipping me with tips to successful blogging, Dwain Lucktung is he.

Ghanabakwamena and Dwain Pose for a shot!

A close look at his blog bio will get you thinking- Really? But YEAH! Dwain is a 24/7 hustler- believe it or not…lols! He mentioned that was the truth- I admire his sincerity, makes me wanna admit I’m err mm …hahahahaha! Dwain stated a person must know what he/she stood for when blogging. I wasn’t surprised when he asked “What do you blog about?” I replied, “…mostly Issues from my world of advocacy & activism, Nokia and interesting stuff I come across…” he liked it and advised I remain focused, also “…give your readers a reason to keep coming back for more.” The truth is- Dwain attempted to give me a hands-on experience but the Link at Hotel Massaley, Bamako wouldn’t permit because it wasn’t functional- a piece of advice to the hotel: “PLEASE CHECK IT & FIX THE PROBLEM”, the link back at the main arena for the event was soooo sssssloooooow it took ages for many participants to connect with the rest of the world most of the time.

Dwain shared lots of Vital FREE Information with me, from; Starting and sustaining a Blog, types of blogs, Tittle and Content, How to share links and get your blog read, hyperlinking, pictures, through to- Design of your Blog esp. colours, comments, updating you blog as often as possible- at least two or three times a month etc. oh!, and Hashtags. Talk of tags- I have Dwain’s Summit Tag, he was outta Mali before I could return it- I’m keeping it- at least I have something that reminds me of one of my favourite bloggers and mentor! Whaaaaat? I couldn’t believe my ears when he mentioned he was still learning to be a better blogger.

He advised I read a lot- especially other blogs. I check his blog out whenever I get online- wanna know what Dwain just posted? Click here: D-W-A-I-N . Dwain got me falling in love with blogging all over again and stirred up some fire… so sad my laptop wasn’t around- you would have read this item long before 21st May…hehehehehehe! Never mind- we’re glad all is well.  I have, within this short period of time- grown to appreciate the efforts of all bloggers around the world in their bid to inform their readers on happenings around the world! “…I’m ma Blog-blog-blog no matter what!”
