ZimTechDaily: The Person Behind the Tech Site (Part 1)
I would like to give a big s/o to Marshall Chikari for making this blog possible he is a true hero. So today I just decided not to post about other tech staff but post about me as a tech blogger and a tech fan. So you might want to know about me since I haven't actually introduced myself. And before I do that I would like to thank you for being part of zimtechdaily. Without you, I would not be able to keep posting and loving tech. Thank you for reading and supporting.
First of all, I want to give a special s/o to Ali Abdaal for inspiring me to do this. Just today as I was watching some videos on YouTube I came across a video by Ali which at first I did not want to watch the entire video but I kept on watching it and wow I got inspired. You can watch the video here. I'm going to write in a not so formal way but yeah here it is. Well, let's start.
My name is Munyaradzi Nigel Muchenje. I'm a young man aged 25, I was born in Harare, Zimbabwe. When I was a little boy I was always fascinated by tech gadgets I remember when I was five, my dad had this small red radio which could be used underwater I thought that was so cool and from that day I just fell in love with tech.
So back to me, I'm a graphic design student at the Chinhoyi University of Technology doing my final year. When I'm not studying I love watching Tech videos a lot and reading about tech and also telling my sister about every cool gadget which I either see or wish I could own.
I created or started this site because I wanted to engage with tech fans and talk about my love for tech and share stories about technology which I really love. So I had no money to pay to get my blog created, I then asked my friend Marshall to help since he is a great web developer.
And he said yes sure he would love to help free of charge, I can tell you this I was really happy. The site was created and as a student, I had saved some few dollars and then purchased the domain and well here we are today. I knew deep down in my heart this is what I wanted to do.
It was not easy, I criticised myself for days thinking what if it fails all my saved money would be gone and what will my family and friends say? I was hesitant but as something I really loved, I went ahead and started ZimTechDaily.
The journey hasn't been easy but I keep pushing every day. As you may now know I'm a student and balancing between studying and committing myself to this can be hard. That's why you see sometimes I post articles at night (CAT zone guys can relate) because I will have some free time before I sleep or study to post at night.
The other challenge is finance, I have to do designs for some clients and have money to keep ZimTechDaily running or ask my parents to help or my sister. They're supportive and I appreciate that a lot.
I should be able to earn money via affiliate links to pay for the blog, buy some tech gadgets for reviews and upgrade my tech gear. To be honest for the affiliate links I haven't earned any money yet. You, readers, haven't bought anything through my affiliate links yet (lol but sad).
Not to bother you but it would be great if you purchase gadgets via the affiliate links which I post here and on the zimtechdaily social media handles you will be supporting me a lot I would be so happy. As you can see there are Ads on the site, I can earn money if you guy's click on the Ads it would help the site grow. I will talk more about that in a dedicated article tomorrow.
For today I just want to say to somebody reading this, don't give up on your dream. It's ok to be a beginner and do not be afraid let's do this together you can make it don't be afraid.
So for today that's been it about me, I hope I inspired someone with my short sad article (lol) catch you guys on part two. Be safe and enjoy the tech.
