Welcome to TGM and my first blog post. My name is Odira Okonkwo and I am a freelance software developer and apparently I’m a blogger too. This is my first blog ever and I am excited to share with you my journey, ideas and inspire someone out there, so poke around and you might learn something.
Why I started my blog
A few months ago I began my journey to become a self-taught software developer. It all started as a necessity, I was looking for some way to earn a living after graduation. I have always been fascinated by technology, so I thought this was a reasonable path for me. I didn’t really expect to like it this much, but since the day I started coding I have grown to love it more each day. So I thought to myself why not share your story and your journey and inspire someone out there who might be ready to follow the same path.
Starting a blog came to mind, but I was like “who reads blogs these days?”, but I was wrong. After some research, I found that almost every important information I had gotten from a google search was written by a blogger. So I realized, the value I could bring to someone out there, and here we are. I want to use this platform to educate or inspire as many people as I can, especially aspiring developers and provide information that I wish I had known sooner.
What will I be blogging about?
I will be blogging about the failures and successes in my journey as a developer (how you can start, how to avoid the mistakes I made, top online resources and so much more). I’ll be bringing to you, different ways to make money online, how to create multiple streams of income, mostly by doing light work. I will be posting news of the latest tech trends, review of flagship gadgets, cheap tech gadgets and where to get them and also ways of investing your time and money.
So, basically I’ll be blogging on software development, technology and finance. So I hope you bookmark this page, poke around and learn something. I will be posting twice a week on Mondays and Fridays. With time, I will post more frequently. I hope to get your attention and provide some value to you. I encourage comments, criticisms and suggestions as this is also a learning process for me as well. There will also be guest posts, with all credit given to the writer, so whatever your message is, you can use this platform to get it across.
I hope to see you more. Peace!
