Firstly I’ll like to wish you a happy new month, we are already in the last month of the year, I hope you are preparing for the holiday, I’ll also say a Happy Birthday To FlowingTechBlof (FTB), probably, this article was suppose to come up yesterday, but due to the fact that our Anniversary fell on sunday I had to postpone this article a day ahead.

It’s already one year since we started this journey, blogging has really been fun, rugged and above all very interesting 🙂 . On November 30th 2013, I set out to purchase a domain name for this blog, I was confused as all my desired names had been taken, towards the cool evening when I was having rest, the wonderful name (techribs) hit my head Gbam! After purchasing the domain name and fixing it, the journey began. At the begining I didn’t seem to be serious with blogging, as blogging didn’t seem to be friendly with me (Traffic Issues) you know what I mean, so I had some time off from blogging, probably thats one of my blogging mistakes. Around March 2014, I decided to go into the blogosphere and explore more.

Since March 2014, I’ve been up and doing, blogging now tends to have no option than becoming a friend .. lol .. At least I’ve got a hobby that pays. Today we are celeberating our first Anniversary, with a lot of achievments as well. Maybe in the nearest time, I’ll have to change my view as to how I see blogging (fulltime blogging) 🙂 .

Are there any changes you noticed on my photo over there? Yes I had to cut my hair low so I could look like the real me, unlike my Gravatar, I hope I’m looking good 🙂 . Within this pace of time I’ve been able to meet some bloggers who have really contributed to my blogging life, and some which I also have in one way or the other learnt a thing from. Of course they are very numerous and I don’t think I’ll be able to mention them all, but let me list but a few as much as I can remember.

I wish FTB (techribs) a very happy anniversary, there are gooddies in stock. A lot of my readers have contacted me, telling me how passionate they are about blogging, but don’t know how to go about it. Owing to this, I have decided to feature some professional bloggers here at FTB (techribs), to take my faithful readers on a guide to start, build, optimize and make money from their blogs. You can see these four wonderful bloggers below:

This is the last month of the year, every blogger wether new or old wants to revolutionise their blogging journey in 2015, we all want our blogs to go to the next level in 2015, so I think it’s gonna be nice you keep visiting my blog as these bloggers will teach us more about blogging.

This is really gonna be beneficial to all of us, please make sure you don’t miss it. These bloggers are packed with a lot of goodies that can boost your blog to the next level in 2015.

GIVEAWAY!

We are already in the month of december, so I guess the giveaway competition starts today, let’s see what we have in stock.

None Bloggers:
For those of my readers who wish to set-up a blog, after these four professional bloggers must have empowered you with the rudimentary skills required to venture into blogging, I’ll set-up a blog for the person who will be emerging successful in this particular contest. Just keep commenting and make sure you are on the lead on the top commentator widget. That’s it!

Bloggers:
Sure, my lovely blogger’s ain’t left out as well, the first two bloggers who happen to take the lead in the top commentators list for december will be handsomely rewarded. Lets see how.

The first blogger on the list stands a chance of having his/her product or website reviewed for free here on FTB.
Furthermore, the second blogger on the list will be offered a 250 X 250 free ads space on FTB for one month.

I’m really glad for this day, techribs won’t be here today without your support, I really appreciate. I also would appreciate your shares and comments..lol

      Less I forget, your cake is waiting here for you, hurry up come take it 🙂

      I’ve heard your advice, and sure it was as if you were in my thoughts. I really appreciate your stopping by here, and bro, trust me, we will all get there.

Nice of you to show your gratitude to those who helped you out in one way or the other. Happy for eh, maybe someday I’ll put up a post like this with..

    • Hello Gracia,

      Thanks for stopping by, and do have a wonderful day ahead.

  21. Hi Larry,

    I’m so sorry I’m late getting by here but I’ve had your blog loaded up to stop by for a visit.

    Wow, one whole year. That’s quite an accomplishment and I know you’re very proud. I can imagine hunting for a domain name and the one you probably had in mind was already taken. That’s never fun so continuing on until you find one you like isn’t always fun. I think you did good though.

    I appreciate the mention here, I see that I’m in very good company.

    By now I’m sure that the giveaway and has been successful and everyone that participated is really excited as well.

    Thank you again and here it to another whole year of success, meeting new people and a heck of a lot of fun too!

    Thanks again and enjoy what’s left of your week.

    ~Adrienne

    • Hi Ma’am Adrienne,
      You know blogging will never allow us say “it really was easy.” it never has been easy, right from choosing a name for this blog.
      As a matter of fact, you deserve the mention.

      Well my giveaway is still in the process, and you can observe that via the top commentator widget.

      Sure I really am proud 🙂 and I pray that my next year will surely be better than this year.

      Thanks for stopping by and do have a wonderful day ahead.
