Recognized by

While going through my taptu feeds yesterday, I stumbled on an article on in which 360Nobs, and were mentioned as top local blogs in Nigeria that reported the abduction of chibok girls by Boko Haram on April 15, a day or more before Western media picked up the news.

While it might not sound as a big deal to you, it is to me. Mashable is a well respected tech blog in USA, with a global Alexa rank of "222" as at the time of publishing this article; the kind of site bloggers like me love to get a backlink from.

Besides the backlink, am sure you know what it means when a site like Mashable reports that Punch and other smaller bloggers picked up a news from your blog... :) When such happens, you can assume the author has been following your blog, probably bookmarked your blog as one of the top blogs in Nigeria.

Anyway, I am glad to see Kemi Filani's blog going places. Kemi, a Mass Comm graduate from Redeemers University, is really doing a great job on her blog and if you do follow her blog, you will notice she is different from most of the copy and paste Nigerian gossip bloggers out there. She shares any gossip with her readers even if a top blogger like Linda Ikeji is involved.

KFB foodie recipe, events, love stories are brilliant ideas she integrated into her blog and are making sense so far. She started the blog in 2012 but became serious with it in 2013. I was the one that even registered the domain name for her last year. Her blog now ranks 236 in Nigeria on Alexa as at the time of publishing this.

My wish is to see her blog as one of the top 100 blogs in Nigeria soon. Feel free to check out her blog at :

  8. Congrats Kemi ... nice blog

  9. Wow! anybody who knows what it feels to be recognized by Mashable (One of the most valueable and respected blogs in the world) will wait no second to say congrats to Kemi. So happy for her.. more oil to her lantern.

  10. I visit her blog too..great work she's doing but i don't really understand if having your "name" in a domain name is Better than having numbers, like i have but other blogs that have their names are ranked higher (alexa)...having a domain name from my name would be tough... hope it's related ?

  11. Thankyou so much Jide, you rock!

  12. Nice writeup. Am a loyal reader of her blog. There's no day I don't visit. Keep ball rolling @ kemi
    And thumps up to Mr Jide
