Creative Corner: Wisdom Ncube – Reflections blog

Hey there and welcome back to the blog. If you’re new here, I hope you’ll join this wonderful community.

As you all know, I love interviewing fellow creatives and hearing a little more about what goes on outside of their work.

Today’s guest is 2021 AfroBloggers Awards Expressive nominee Wisdom Ncube who resides in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.

Wisdom Ncube is a 28-year-old IT student, content writer, blogger, freelance writer and ghostwriter with experience in article writing and motivational pieces.

Additionally, the creative Wisdom writes poetry under Intanga hub as a member of Gourd of Consciousness.  His poetry work has been featured on The Queensdale Report, Poetry Potion and Motimagz to name but a few.

Currently, he’s compiling a book of short stories.

Wisdom’s passion for the pen is evident in the volunteer work he does for different online magazines with journalistic features on and his personal blog, Reflections.

What inspires you to blog?

Hekima is a Swahili word that means Wisdom and Wisdom is my first name.

What inspires me to blog is day to day situations, headliners and trending topics that have life lessons, not showbiz or anything that doesn’t edify.

What are the highlights of your blogging journey so far?

The highlight of my blogging journey is definitely the AfroBloggers Awards Nomination.

Which aspect of blogging do you find most challenging?

The challenge with content creation is consistency. As a blogger, I’m a writer and at times the tank can be empty because you’re not only creating general content but you’re trying to create something that will be worthwhile reading.

What are your interests outside of blogging?

I play chess and I read a lot of books. 

How do you attract new readers to your blog?

I make use of social media especially Twitter where the blogging and writing community is highly active. I also follow other bloggers and comment on their work, and with that, I’ve noticed they also do in turn check out my blog and interact. 

Which of your posts is a “must-read”?

I’ll tone it down to two. 1. “The Frantic Search of the Mark of the beast” 2. “Is Chess a measure of intelligence?”.

What do you look forward to the most at the end of the year?

In terms of blogging, reflecting on my growth as a blogger, and of course the announcement of the AfroBloggers winners.

Your top 3 blogging tips

  1. Start. Don’t procrastinate on starting your blog if you haven’t. Start now. Start today. 
  2. Even if you feel like no one is seeing your work, keep writing. This will help you gain momentum when you’re now garnering a significant followership and you’re under pressure to release content. 
  3. Put yourself out there. Research on the blogging community and interact with other bloggers online. 

How does it feel to be a nominee for the 2021 Afrobloggers awards?

It feels great to get recognition for doing what I love doing and that is writing. A nomination is like a win because to be shortlisted amongst the best bloggers in Africa is a milestone on its own.

Why should we vote for you?

I’m serious about what I do and I have the vision to help bloggers monetize their content and hopefully be full-time content creators and winning can help me gain exposure to make this vision a reality. 

Congratulations Wisdom on your AfroBloggers Award nomination. I wish you all the best.
