  • Hey Sheeroh;
    am your close follower though not a freelancer. I just love how you blog; from the content, design and marketing.

    I have been in the industry not for so long but you can help judge my blog’s progress. Am still low in list building (email marketing) and the way you doing it, i just love.

    Before i forget, much congratulations for the infographic’s post. Its a great step ahead especially in the Kenyan blogging industry.

    Best Regards.

    • Thanks so much for the compliments! You have a great blog there too. Awesome content. Just work a bit more on promoting it especially on social media and also write guest posts.

  • Awesome piece Sheeroh, worth every minute of my time. Thank you so much, I have noted all the points keenly. If you could, can you prepare a piece on different style guides for different sites? It will really help us to be able to note which site needs what and it will prevent us from getting locked out of sites. Thanks once more and God bless.


  • The blog is very informative and helped me to know more about transcription. I did transcription work with Appenonline but recently started to register at Upwork doing Somali to English vice versa translation jobs and I started recently to show interest on transcription projects as they’re handy and more often available.

    I also viewed your profile in Upwork and witnessed the marvelous work you do out there. Your task compilation success and your hard work deserve more than a compliment.

  • Wow..I’ve read quite a number of your articles this afternoon and you are making me consider transcription for extra cash. Would you recommend it as a part time job?
    You are quite good in this am considering your training. God bless you

    • Yes. I would most definitely recommend transcription as a side hustle. All you need to do is set aside a couple of hours each day, say 3 to 4 hours. You are welcome to take my training.

  • Hello Sherroh,
    Is it possible to get the noise cancelling headphones in Kenya?
    Any shop you would recommend and brand?
    You are doing a great job educating blessed.

  • Hi name sake,

    Thanka for always taking time to enlighten us. I appreciate this tipa as much as we tend to work they are major and most important in what we do.. Be blessed always.
