My guests today, i met them for the 1st time in Bloggers Union Gathering and i had to say im honored to know them. Meet Mohammed, Abdulaziz and MiMi and know the people behind the screen of the one of the popular blogs in my opinion.
Here what they had to say:
- Why did you choose (Q8Blend) as a name to your blog?
Well we were always amazed with how kitchen Blenders work hehehe, naaah ;P .Seriously speaking we have chosen the name Q8Blend to express the various dissimilar combination of topics that we cover, which will be Blending all together in this blog.
- Tell me about yourself?
First of all the three of us are Engineers specialized in different majors. As for How we know each other:
Mohd <–(10+yrs Friendship)–> Aziz <–(Married couple)–> MiMi
Mohd, is the Techno-savvy guy in our family, he have to try any new gadget, know the pros and the cons about it. Friends are actually calling him before buying anything.
MiMi, our food critic has a dependable laid-back personality. Love’s traveling & fashion. Mmmm what can I say more, she’s the other half of me.
Aziz, I am the kind of person’s who have to know something about everything, a football maniac since a young age “followed Maradona news & cheered Italy in world cup 1990”
- How long have you been blogging?
We were lurking blogs since it started to pull the attention in Kuwait on 2005-2006 & we decided to start our blog recently on October 2010.
- How many writers (Members) in your blog?
Just the three of us: Mohd, MiMi & Aziz
- What kind of category you see your blog in?
We consider Q8Blend as a family blog. Of course our rating code is G & because of the variation in our personalities and state of thinking, the readers should find their interest what so ever their taste was. Diversity is 100% guaranteed.
- How did you start blogging?
Allow me to tell a story, at the end of a quite beautiful night in Dewaniya on last October we was Mohd & my self aggressively discussing something about a post we read in one blog, then i just told him: Dude let’s just start a blog, then he replayed: Dude i was thinking the same. So we started right away & MiMi jumped in the boat days later.
- What was the reaction of the people around you about your blog?
Friends & Family supported us from the very start by encouraging us or even sharing post ideas with us. Moreover, we have received a lot of support from friend in other blogs and we are supporting the new comers as well “life is a give & take”.
- What kind of marketing method you used for your blog (How’s did you prompted your blog)?
Well everyone looks at it differently, first thing we done was registering with all the available aggregators. But, in my point of view I can say that the most important marketing method is Content, Content & Content.
- Do you have any new ideas coming soon to your blog?
Mmmm, maybe we have a couple of ideas but sorry Abdullah I am gonna keep them as a surprise ;P
- What do you advise the guys/girls who just started blogging?
Keep on blogging it’s awesome. Don’t just flood your blog with posts & always keep an eye on the content of your posts & more importantly, make it entertaining and beneficial at the same time to your readers
- Any last words to your readers?
We are deeply flattered and grateful by the readers comments & support. And how can I thank you Abdullah for this wonderful interview, a thousand hopes for your success everyone.
