Hello World!

I’m Oludami Yomi-Alliyu, and I’m glad to be launching my personal blog today – finally!

I’m a Nigerian lawyer turned copywriter and digital marketing professional.

This isn’t my first blogging experience; opened my first blog between 2010 and 2011 — betalyf.blogspot.com, before launching my first professional blog in 2012, LucrativePen.com, which I lost four years later.

Currently, I run RenegadeCommerce.com, a digital marketing blog, and another beauty blog in my wife’s name. (Yes, I’m married, with a beautiful daughter!)

I love writing, and it’s one of the reasons I’m excited to start a personal blog. I earn the bulk of my living from writing – freelance content writing and copywriting (writing ads and other persuasive pieces).

I’m also published on major publications like Entrepreneur.com, ThriveGlobal, EcommerceNation, YNaija, EvanCarmichael, UnderstandingEcommerce, etc. And I’m privileged to have written for companies like Bluehost, Shopify, Oberlo, SweetProcess, MSN, NairaBET, etc.

I took a break from a promising law career for online entrepreneurship — and left my father’s house same day.

It wasn’t as easy as I hoped, but hey, 3 years down the line I’m doing fine!

Why did I take the break? What steps did I take next? How has the journey been so far? What are my plans for the future? These, among tons of other topics, will I be sharing on this blog.

The answer to why I do all I do can however be summed up in one word: F R E E D O M !

That’s my biggest value – I’m a sucker for freedom.

And that will be the overarching theme of this blog.

I’ll be sharing my stories and experiences from my (rebellious and windy) entrepreneurial journey so far, and even things I’m now doing to achieve that huge goal I’ve set for myself.

I’ll also be sharing fun stories from my day-to-day living, my experiences in pursuit of freedom, things happening around me and online, things I’m learning, my marriage and parenting, my travels, things I love and so on.

My goal for every reader and follower of this blog is that we all achieve freedom — whatever it means to each of us. That, there, is how it concerns you…we in this together!

It’s definitely going to be an interesting ride. Make sure you follow this blog closely!

The best way to do that is to subscribe to this blog so you don’t miss anything, and also follow me on my personal social profiles: @Oludami on IG, @Oludami on Facebook and @TheOludami on Twitter.

Thanks for your time…and talk soon.
