 9ja Flint: Welcome Sir.
 Peterinforms: The next blogger on the list of the interview is TIT NAIJA.
Titinaija: TITINAIJA***
Peterinforms: Or sorry for that
Peterinforms: So the name titinaija?
Titinaija: No problems boss.
Peterinforms: So the name titinaija?
Peterinforms: How did it came up?
Titinaija: It came up through a friend of mine ,he loves calling me titi so he adopted the naija at the back of his own nick and gave it to me ,so I also named my blog after my nick.
 Peterinforms: That's great.  You are a female blogger amidst majority of male bloggers...how do you handle your connections?
Titinaija: It has been God all through its not easy to be the only female blogger dangling in the midst of many male bloggers but I seem to find my way amongst them.
 9ja Flint: Can you name some of your favorite bloggers and tell us why they are your favorites?
Titinaija: I don't have a favorite blogger but I love them all especially those who impacted positively to my blogging world
9ja Flint: Okay.
 Peterinforms: I have a friend that joined the group, can you in your simple way explain what blogging is all about?
Titinaija: Umm Blogging to me is no longer a choice but a career ,its a job you take up when you have the passion for it because if you don't have passion for it you will end up dropping half way, its also a job u spend more than earn
Blogging a job that brings updates closer to the people and its also entails you being able to write good content and creating one or recreating the existing ones.
Peterinforms: You are a student right?
Titinaija: Yes
Peterinforms: How do you cope blogging especially the updates part with your academic activities?
Titinaija: Its grace, but you know when you have passion for what you are doing ,you will create time when there is no time ,it's just that I have to stay up many nights to meet up with both.
9ja Flint: What did you find most frustrating as a female blogger?
Titinaija: Frustrating as a female blogger is when u need a male blogger to explain things to u and instead he lifts up different advances
 Peterinforms: Hmmm
That's quite bad
Peterinforms: And what do you do in this scenario?
Titinaija: As a quite person I just reply with "Okay" or "Alright" then leave the place or DM but you will never see me going back to the blogger anymore.
Peterinforms: That's encouraging....
Journey into blogging.. Starting up and the rest?
Titinaija: My journey into blogging was just like a joke(laughs)
I have a male friend who is a blogger so I do help in arranging news links for BC so with that I got more interested till I became a blogger but then me helping him out was like whiling away time for Me then.
Peteinforms:This is a story
9ja Flint: How often do you communicate with your followers?
Titinaija: That's one bad side of me, I don't really chat I'm the hustling type if I'm online I will rather be on net.
9ja Flint: Smiles...okay
Peterinforms: What are you aspirations as a blogger?
Titinaija: I want to be well known across the world, have fame and be some people's role model.
Peterinforms:That's nice
Peterinforms: Another pressing questions I forgot to ask 9ja flint and I think am brining it up is about circulation of false news and probably a news that might be incomplete... How do you see this as a blogger and has it ever been reported of you doing such
Titinaija: 9jaflint question?
Peterinforms: Nope I think it will be a general question.. You can answer it
Titinaija: Yea to me it has been reported that i carried an incomplete news then but trust me every blogger has their share in this.
To me incomplete or fake news to me is like catching cruise that's why most of the time I don't quickly carry Trending News just to be sure of what we are passing across to the people.
Peterinforms: That's great.
Peterinforms: managing and sourcing of resources...how do you it?
Titinaija: Don't get the question well
 Peterinforms: I meant how do you get funds for your blogging?
Titinaija: Umm,With the support of My lovely sis, and my man together with God's mercy.. No one is out there to help.
Titinaija: I just don't get to do things when I want I have to save up to get things done.
 Peterinforms: We pray for better sponsors
Peterinforms: Any word of advice and shout outs?
Titinaija: Shout outs go to my sister, my man ,loyal fans and my co bloggers who wants to see me win.
And my advice to up coming is too never lose hope for after tribulations and sorrows come day of joy and happiness.

9ja Flint: Who has impacted in you most in blogging and how?

Peterinforms: That's great...being a music uploader blogger...how often do you get the songs of your clients to their listeners?
 Officialunqiue: I am more concern about Music from Star rising artiste like me. Therefore I have created such fan base that embrasses that medium.
