Queen of The Land takes on Social Media

12th January, 2105



Ogini Onyete- translated Queen of the Land has taken on social media and is determined to become a guru!


Today I am on Day 1 of an Advanced social media course, taught by 2 of the most dynamic but un-teacher like people I’ve ever met. 


This is a follow on from the 6 week introductory course that concluded in December of 2014. So for those of you who know me well and were wondering why all of a sudden I seemed to be appearing on every social network platform, its all part of the course and the ultimate grand plan.


I have tackled Linkedin, facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pintrest, Weebly, Padlet…and the list goes on. I have written over 3000 words and aced the project and now I am getting down to the real business of understanding what this is all about and how its all going to work for me.


As part of the process I am starting this blog to let you all know what I’m up to, my progress and because it is required.

I’m a foodie with particular emphasis at the moment on the food of Africa, and my goal is to show case the great variety and diversity of food that exists in Africa, through taster evenings, spice mixes  and other great canned and bottled products. It is my aim to utilize social media to achieve these goals
