Introducing Hot Topic Thursday! #HTT

Hi there!

I’m Demi, one of your TBP Insiders and I’m so happy that you decided to stop by TBP today! We as a team are delighted to have you here and we’re constantly working together to bring you the best content and create exciting opportunities for you to get involved in! For this reason we’ll be launching HOT TOPIC THURSDAY which be an open chit chat session for everyone in our blogosphere!

This discussion would be led by me, Demi ^_^, every Thursday between 7pm and 8pm! HOT TOPIC THURSDAY would be an opportunity for you to voice your opinion about any topic that relates to us as bloggers and each week I will pick a topic to discuss and/or debate about! The HOT TOPIC of the week will be posted on the TBP forum to open the session and just to wet your appetite, here are some of the topics to look forward to!

Is your Instagram follower count an indication of how well your blog’s doing?

Do we have too many Fashion bloggers?

Are male bloggers often looked down on and is the blogosphere sexist towards males?

Is it easier to be a blogger in the western world?

No one reads blogs in Nigeria. True or False?

Etcetera, etcetera…

Did those tingle or thinking senses or ignite some flame within you? Then make sure you visit The Blogger Point forum every Thursday at 7pm to find out what other bloggers think and to also share your views! We exist to create a platform for you to grow and share your passion with people just like you and oh yes… Maybe I should introduce myself just a bit more…

As previously mentioned, my name is Demi and my little slice of the net can be found at I have been blogging on High Street Mania since November 2014 and ever since then I have worked with numerous brands and bloggers, written for various platforms but it’s not always been rosy. Throughout 2015, I contemplated deleting my blog SEVERAL TIMES. Why? Because I worked so hard on my post and on many days I had no visitors to my blog and the number of followers I had on my social networks seemed like nothing to be proud of. Then I embarked on a self-discovery journey – literally – to evaluate why I was blogging, what I wanted out of it and where I thrived the most.  I discovered myself… and through support from family and friends, I kept working hard on my blog but with a completely different direction and a refreshed passion. Today HSM is growing at a very steady and exciting pace and I can’t wait to get to where she’s leading me. So I understand what it’s like to be at your lowest point as a blogger and I know how to stay focused, committed and keep a blog at a high point!

So join me weekly to discuss those topics that will help you grow, dispel blogging myths and many more!

Have a splendid day!

Love Demi (TBP Insider/Forum Manager) x

    Can’t wait for Thursday! I’ve actually deleted my blog before and I just recently reopened a new one. I can’t wait to learn from you and everyone that’s going to contribute.

      Go girl! I’m glad to know you reopened it!
      Hopefully we can all share a thing or two to stop others from deleting their blogs too ^_^

    an’t wait! I totally understand that phase you went through Demi, even though my blog is relatively new, I understand that discouraged feeling you get after investing hours or even days in a blog posts only for a handful of people to read it. I’m happy we finally have a place to talk about all these issues! x

    Hi! This has definitely been me lately with my blog, the thought of deleting it crossed my mind, luckily I held back. I can’t wait to discuss and meet with fellow Nigerian bloggers!
