My Afroblogger Curating Experience

Noloyiso shares her Afrobloggers #SundayTakeover Experience

The Chronicles of a Nubian Queen

Happy Humpday, Erbody!

I don’t know about you, but this week has just flown by! I’m am heading back to work next week so maybe that’s why🤔

Today, I’m sharing yet another Twitter fun thing I did. I’m starting to develop a pattern, don’t you think?😉

I’m sure I’ve told you about Afroblogger before. I normally participate in their Wednesday Poetry evenings. If you missed it before, I talk about it here.

This time, my partnership with them was a bit different. Every Sunday, Afrobloggers allows one of its followers to take over their account for the day. I had to be part of this and because sometimes you have to go get what you want, I asked and it was given to me!

For me #SundayTakeover was an opportunity to meet other bloggers, find some inspiring blogs and also gain some followers and I was not dissappointed!

Afro Bloggers Account Take Over Experience

In Hindsight with Mpho Mashita as she shares a retrospective look at her experiences in taking over the Afrobloggers account…………..

In Hindsight with Mpho Mashita

I couldn’t believe it when I received the message from Afro Bloggers asking me to be their guest for their ‘Sunday Account Take Over’. So without even thinking twice about it, I said yes! It was such an honour to be recognized for the work I do on my fairly new blog and I knew instantly what I desired to engage the community about, and boy did they come to the party!

I planned my topics for the day around the issues that I wanted to discuss. First of all, I saw this as a great platform to engage fellow bloggers on issues that I have been struggling with on my blog and they were able to give great insight into my issues. I’m always asking myself these questions: ‘Does my content resonate with the people that follow my work?’, ‘Should I be more niche?’, ‘Do I want to be…

Curating @AfroBloggers on #SundayTakeOver

Every Sunday @AfroBloggers allows one person to manage its Twitter account from 9am to 9pm. I was guest curator for a day and here’s a bit about my experience.

First of all, a great big shout out to the team that curates @afro bloggers on a daily basis. Y’all do a fantastic job. Having been a guest curator for a day, I must admit that I didn’t know that being a curator was so demanding. It’s a full time job!

Secondly, a big shout out to the @afrobloggers community. You guys rock. You’re so responsive and made my job easy. It was fun visiting your blogs and getting to know a bit about you. I admit I didn’t visit all of them, the first few responses to the initial tweet got more attention, but at least I can continue from where I left off.

Now I know where to go…
