JBKlutse.com Is 5 Years: Happy Anniversary To The Africa’s Authoritative Tech Blog In Ghana.
As far as tech in Ghana is concerned, Jbklutse.com has become a home for average Ghanaian tech lovers to visit each and everyday for the untold tech news and stories that cover startups, smartphone launches, events, telecommunication companies in Ghana, how to start a blog and many more form this tech blog.
It all started on May 23 in 2015, when the sole tech-preneur, happens to be the person of John-Bunya Klutse, wanted to start a portal where he could unleash his trained computer scientist ideas, digital media strategies and tech tricks & hacks as well to the Ghanaian tech lovers. Nothing came up than to launch the proud tech blog, jbklutse.com that he can write the daily tech hacks, simple tech tricks and tutorials, then to writing on the topics in the interest of technology.

What Is JBKlutse.com?
jbkluste.com is the Africa’s Authoritative tech blog from Ghana.
With the need to embrace technological breakthroughs in the tech blogging space, the tech blog, jbklutse.com often refer to technology as the shiny, new innovations like self-driving cars or voice assistants, its breadth is much more than that.
A best web source for news, blogging, technology, travel, lifestyle, startups, internet, social media, culture, blogs, media, reviews and more from Ghana and the globe.
It all started as creating the tech blog, jbklutse.com for Ghanaians to read more tech news in Ghana and beyond. Blogging is not easy though, and there’s nothing like blogging without having an advert on such blog. One needs to make money, but JB Klutse of jbklutse.com was managing his tech blog for almost 2 years without placing advert on the blog, all because of audience could get easy to navigate feature while reading content.
JB Klutse’s decision to start JBKlutse.com — which has now become a full-fledged Tech blog — wasn’t a smooth ride. There are rough bumps every now and then but, we are grateful.
To talk about the writers and contributors aspect, Ebo and Aisha are the first writers recruited into the JBKlutse team. A website hit which cost the blog a major source of revenue almost derailed the site. Throughout the hardships of those times, Ebo and Aisha continued working without pay for some time until things turned for the blog in the last quarter of 2017.
Celebrating five years of relevance
A desire to provide an archive for tech-related news, gradually developed into becoming a resource centre — not only for tech news — but also, adding our voice to what is happening within the technology and industrial space of Ghana. Recognizing the influence we were beginning to have, we diversified to include lifestyle and other exciting subjects without taking our focus off our main intention — which is to provide proper and relevant technology news about Ghana.
It has not been easy, but God is good and faithful. Focusing on technology as your niche in Ghana is not such a glorious thing. Ghana is not Silicon Valley (San Francisco), where there is something to write about every second. But this again is where the blessing is. The unpleasant encounters will push you to learn to provide value — because niches are not carved out for you, you carve them yourself.
JBKlutse.com has grown to become Ghana’s most authoritative technology news site. Corporate organisations recognise the efforts we make to put out factual information and hence, consistently partner with us because they believe we will do justice to the reportage. In the face of all this, we are not resting on our oars because ultimately we will build something that becomes even bigger than ourselves.
Starting a blog is the easy part; sustaining it is where the real work is. Over the years, writers have come and gone, and a lot will attest to the fact that producing content is not as easy as it sounds because once again, there is a difference between good content and valuable content as decided by the readers.
Advice for up and coming bloggers from JB Klutse
Taking the easy way out (clickbait and sensationalism) might seem like an answer in tough moments when you are not getting the traction you need for excellent stories. But when you remain faithful to the vision, the right people will notice, and when the right people are talking about you, a lot of good things will happen.
This is the long and short of it all; we are five years today. Together, we have come a long way, but we pray for the grace to do much more than we’ve ever done. This is just five years. We will continue building and developing, so we can better position ourselves to bring you content worth your reading and informative pleasure.
