My First Post

My First Post

A journey of a thousand miles starts with one step.

This is my journey to becoming a full time blogger and yippee!!! this is my first blogpost. Here is a little introduction about me – My name is Aderopo Jacob Ayokunle, but please call me Jacob. I am a Software Engineer, Programmer, Husband and Father. As at the time of writing this post I work for a top e-Commerce company in Nigeria. I studied Electrical Engineering (B.Eng) at the University of Ilorin; graduated 2008. Thanks to the Nigerian Military School, Zaria (Yes, I am an ExBoy), I was once in the Nigerian Army, I retired voluntarily in Dec 2011. I do PHP, Java, MySQL, Javascript, HTML5, ShellScript and CSS. I’m  currently a Magento Expert, Yii Framework Guru, Payment Integration guy and Website Optimisation chief. I have so many websites credited to my name in terms of Development and Design (I will mention them as I blog along). Well enough said about me.

So, to what i have in stock for you, I intend to blog mostly on Information and Technology with regards to my work life. Be sure to expect tutorials on PHP, Magento, HTML and Javascript as i also intend to use this platform to do that. Do not be surprised if you find me writing on politics, food, music and love as these are stuff I like. I will try to be as fun as possible so you won’t be bored to death, and I will need your help achieving that as feedbacks will definitely make me better. My goal is to have a post for you weekly so please comeback every week for something new.

Before I leave for this week, i don’t want to end without saying thanks to some people. Thanks Akinyele Olubodun for the inspiration, your words gave me the energy to get started. I can’t stop writing without saying Thank You to my lovely, beautiful, wonderful, sexy Wife Atilayo Ayokunle and to my daughter i say “If i catch you”.

    Nice one brother, we’ll first of all, good you’ve got started. A journey of a thousand miles… you know the rest.

    Just some tidbits, for Seo purposes, your blog should not be in a subdomain! Google doesn’t like that. But we’ll done. A nice start. Also, since this is powered by wordpress, get jetpack plugin installed, and enable comments and blog follow options in the settings – discussions area. Cheers.
