Helloooo! I am super super excited! Over the moon and so happy, i am grinning from ear to ear like that happy yelping dog dancing around your legs lol.
For those of you who don’t understand, the wordpress.com website is actually a free one and i needed to host the website by transferring it from wordpress.com to wordpress.org which is the self hosted version of wordpress.
Sounds complicating right? I know. It took me eons to understand it myself so don’t worry. By the time i am done with the post, i hope you all will understand a bit and also be excited like i am.
I have been blogging under the name Jennifer Pompaski with a free website, https://ufuomajenniferesegine.wordpress.com. During this time, i have been studying and learning all what i need to know about blogging. It is one long unending journey. It has been frustrating, tiring albeit an enlightening journey.
At times it gets hilarious because i feel i ask bloggers some silly and stupid questions which they assure me were not. In any case, i still felt at those times i was asking silly questions. I had to learn about blog traffic, SEOs, Keyword researches, Email list, plugins, themes and a whole lot of other technical terms and jargons synonymous with the “Tech” world.
So most blogging resources will tell you to have at least 20 blog posts up before self hosting and that is what i have been building on. I now have a total of 21 blog posts with lots of different drafts for blog posts idea that will hopefully become fully written articles.
If you guessed that i have self hosted is the exciting news, then you guessed right! You all are so smart! The other exciting news is that my website domain is http://www.kingingqueen.com! Yes, you got that right. Kinging queen.
I put a lot of thought into the selection of the website name because i had to choose what actually defines the aim i want to achieve in my blogging journey. For the first few years of my life, from the age of 9 till i was about 17 years, i was a victim of molestation. Physical, emotional and mental abuse. I retreated into reading, even went as far as writing lots of beautiful poems (oh well i thought they were beautiful). I however lost the book of poems.
I have been a voracious reader for as long as i can remember, usually retreating into the world of Mills & Boons, those heroes and heroines and their always “happy ever after” endings, the world of espionage and adventures on the pages of James Hadley Chase, the never ending intrigues of the “law” on the pages of every John Grisham best seller, Danielle Steele and her powerful work of fiction that always make me cry or laugh, the world of Hollywood on Jackie Collins novels, Sidney Sheldon spinning masterpiece tales.
The list goes on and on. Reading and writing became my escape and still is even though it is more leisurely now. This has made me acquire quite a library that i am proud of.
I started gaining voice, started standing up for myself in the higher institution because i made a deliberate and conscious effort to stand up to anyone and everyone who wants to put me down, bully me or abuse me in anyway.
It took a lot of courage. I am still on the journey and i hope it takes me to a great place where my voice will be higher than the voice of every form of oppression and victimization both in homes and workplaces.
Being a female working in predominantly male profession, i have witnessed and have been subjected to gender inequality, oppression and victimization from male colleagues and each time, i have come up a winner! I never let anyone treat me as a doormat or treat me lesser because of my gender when i know what i am doing!
This is where the idea for the name of my website was born! The kinging queen is born and live!
