Here are the rules of this challenge:

* Mention the person who tagged you
* Answer the questions in full
* Don’t forget to tag up to ten other bloggers at the end

Here are the questions:

How did you get into blogging?

I got into blogging when I discovered it was a medium through which I could reach out to more people than I was doing through my radio programs and writings and inspire, motivate, encourage, and help them develop their potential and bring out the best in themselves, realize their dreams and contribute to make the world an excellent place for all to live in.

What advice would you give to a blogger just starting out?

Set a big goal for your blog. Develop a passion. Be dedicated and work hard. In the blogging sphere you will meet the most loving people in the world. Show them love and care. Be generous with your support for them and they will give you back more than you give them.

What would be your dream campaign?

Bring out the best in you and offer the best of yourself to the world so that the world may become an excellent place for everybody to enjoy.

Do you have a plan for your blog?

I have a very big plan for my blog. I want it to be among the best in the world so that more people will visit it and have their lives transformed. Let it be that forum that transforms millions of lives by helping them to achieve their dreams in life.

What do you think about rankings?

Ranking is good as it helps you to see that there are really smart people in the world; and if they can do it you too can. It is meant to spur you to strive for greater heights all the times . This is how we can work hard; stretch ourselves and achieve more marvels for the world. There is still so much to conquer and until someone is rating your work to let you know where you rank, you may sit on your laurels thinking you are doing marvels whereas your potential,is still lying dormant.
