To all my esteemed readers, I appreciate that you took time to read and share my articles.
If you are reading this article, please note that this is a special dedication to you. I want to say thank you for your readership, and to those who reserve a minute to give feedback or drop a comment - big up to you!
I published my first article on 27th March 2020, and it touches my heart to say that close to 6000 people from 41 countries have visited my blog to learn a thing or two. And for this, I want to say THANK YOU VERY MUCH. Your appetite and desire to read and share my insights have contributed immensely to the success of this blog.
To those who have not followed the journey of
this blog closely, I started it under the domain of
www.wambugufarmer.blogspot.com. Two months later we moved to a customized
domain (www.farmbig.net) for two reasons:
- To reflect my desired end goal for agricultural development in Africa (Farming big). I believe that any idea that can help farmers achieve economies of scale will be the turning point of Africa's agriculture. Hence the tagline " farm big Africa"
- I did not want my name to be louder than my message.
I have come to love blogging. It has given me the voice to say things that I have always wanted to say for many years. As I write, I get tremendous satisfaction to know that my voice will be heard by over 200 people across the globe.
Writing has also given me time to interact with the invisible world through intentional deep thoughts and meditation. I have come to understand that writing is another form of self-examination and an opportunity for continuous self-improvement.
I believe that God has great things in store for those who write because continuous writing leads to inevitable personal development. I can testify.
If you know me well, then you know that writing was, and still is, not my thing. It is a journey of learning that I have embarked on. In fact, if I can write, then anyone can write - writing is for everyone!
Besides, I feel so encouraged to see that the more I write the easier writing becomes. I started writing four months ago, and this is my 32nd article, just like that.
Most of my pieces as you may have noticed, reflect the tone of an enthusiast strategist of African agriculture, and I believe that through my small-little contribution of sharing knowledge, Africa shall feed itself.
I am very grateful to The Brigde Africa for introducing me to blogging during my AGCO Agribusiness Program at Strathmore University Business School. Your mentorship helped me to eradicate the fear of expressing myself in writing.
I am also very grateful to readers who have reached out to me with feedback to complement, congratulate, and most importantly to complain and critique. Those who tell me to work harder on my next article before publishing it, I really appreciate your effort to keep a check on the quality of my work.
Moving forward, I can only promise you more content of better quality. This is because my passion and dedication are growing every day. And as I mentioned earlier, the more I write the easier it is becoming.
And finally, special thanks to my wife who always proofreads my articles before I post them online.
I say thanks to God, and to everyone who has played a role, materially or otherwise towards the enrichment of this blog. God bless you all!
