The world cup season here and the long wait are over. Everyone if not everyone, majority of the world is now concentrating on this country known as Brazil including myself. 32 countries now compete for this silverware with the former champions being trashed 5-1 in their opening game against the first runners up of the last world cup edition. Netherlands had no mercy on these guys at all.
The days were football was made in Germany are over and there is doubt football is something most countries are perfecting in maybe except India which has much interest in cricket.
I was a great cricket player. But before I knew it was cricket we were playing those days as kid finding our ourselves at the primary school level, it was too late. We call it ‘chaskele’ and it has the exact rules of cricket. I enjoyed that game a lot but had to switch allegiance to football as a striker but with time, I found myself in the posts as a goalkeeper when I missed a crucial goal scoring opportunity.
With that miss, I was almost sent home. Thank God I was the ‘ball owner’. I owned that football and you can’t send me home early without me going along with my ball. Hahaha!
But I did incredibly well as a goal keeper and popularly referred to as ‘Oliver Kahn’ or ‘Bartez’. As I walk you through the memory lane, I still wonder how far I have come as a child. It looks like it just happened yesterday.
But do you know what has happened to Little Johnny? For those who don’t know Little Johnny, he is that friend of mine who always happens to find himself in one mischievous act or the other and today was of no exception.
Actually he has found himself at the hospital treating some burns but as to what caused the burns, check out what happened. Little Johnny found himself at one inspirational meetings and the inspirational speaker went something like this;
“The Best years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman, who wasn’t my wife.”
The audience was in shock and silent.
He added: “She was my mother”
A big round of applause and laughter followed!
Little Johnny decided to try this at home.
After dinner, he said loudly to his wife in the kitchen:
“The Best years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman, who wasn’t my wife”
Standing for a moment, Little Johnny tried to recall the second line of that inspirational speaker.
By the time he gained his senses, he was on a hospital bed, recovering from burns of boiling water!
Hahaha! Please Little Johnny, always try your to be quick with your memories and forget to copy blindly.
Let move back to business as usual as we wish Little Johnny a speedy recovery as well. So what’s all this post all about?
And it has to do with the reason why India and Nigeria would have always gone to finals in Blogging world cup?
- They dominate the Blogging Scene
When it comes to blogging, there is no way one can do away with these countries. They really do understand what blogging is all about and do have the numbers when it comes to blogging in this blogosphere.
Can you tell me which parts of blogging arena where you’re likely not find any of these nationals not dominating? From technology to the blogging subject itself, they are there. These of course shows how matured and how well they understand the term blogging. There are likely to be be some some sorts of bad nuts among them but that doesn’t take away the fact that blogging is business for them.
- They walk the Talk
When it comes to making money online, they just don’t talk but they walk the talk. These guys are making real cash online and that is something really interesting. When it comes let make money online, a name from Nigeria and India wouldn’t be missed among the tops. That for sure is an indisputable fact. But as to what accounts for this; it obviously had to do with the fact that they are dedicated and understands the word blogging itself.
- Who wins at the end?
In as much as these giants are well known for what they do best; the question I am therefore asking is simple; who will win at the end?
Your thoughts with respect to this grand finale are very well welcomed.
