Tatafonaija: Thanks Mary, so many people ask me the same question, sincerely when thinking of a name for my blog, the name came as a result of what i intend to do with the blog, which is talking, and you know some one that talks a lot is called Tatafo, so i said i am going to be talking so much about Nigeria, hence the name Tatafonaija

Mary Stopes: Who inspired you to start blogging?
Tatafonaija: Linda Ikeji
Mary Stopes: How?
Tatafonaija: I came across her blog, loved it, heard she is making money, said i want to make money too, if you look at my blog it is modeled after her's.

Mary Stopes: Are you making money from your blog now?

Tatafonaija: Yes, but not as much as Linda, i hope to some day soon.

Mary Stopes: How much do you make monthly?

Tatafonaija: Old enough
Mary Stopes: Any word for aspiring bloggers
Tatafonaija: Blogging is hard work, nothing good comes easy, when people are asleep you are awake, reading and researching for good stuff online, it takes at least 3 months of consistent blogging to know if you are called to be a blogger, and one more thing, you will always need that extra to make your ordinary efforts, extra ordinary, for me that extra is God, i advice the same for others.

Mercy Stopes: Thanks Mr Belema, sorry Tatafonaija, hope you will stop by again?

Tatafonaija: Thanks for the opportunity, i will stop by if you invite me.
