129 Flares 129 Flares ×

The year 2013 is gradually winding to an end, and soon it would be completely gone to allow for the ushering in of 2014. The year has been full of memories of successes and some failures as well. The good memories are to be remembered while the unpleasant ones should be discarded as much as possible.

As the year fades away, there are friends that need to be remembered for the positive contributions they made in my life. Here in Business Success Guide, there were those who made great contributions to my success story, and my story can never be complete without a mention of their names.


It is time to say a Happy Christmas to them and also wish them a successful, productive, trouble-free, lovely New Year ahead. You all made us proud; and this is my little way of appreciating you for your regular visits, your valuable comments and for sharing my posts with friends. Some of you went the extra mile to share our posts on some great social network/bookmarking sites. I cannot thank you enough.

I sincerely believe 2014 will be better. I hope to improve on the quality of our relationships, add more value to this blog and also get more quality interviews and giveaways for the readers of this blog. You are truly awesome. You deserve nothing but the best.

    What a lovely post to honor all those who have been part of your blog :)

    I loved the crown and shall place it right on my head, as it’s come from you. Thank you SO much for the kind and warm words. It’s an honor to be mentioned along with so many other wonderful bloggers, and yes – always here to be part of your blogging journey dear friend.

    We need to thank you too for sharing such wonderful posts with all of us, not to mention giving us a platform like TweetLow as well where we can meet new bloggers and share our posts with others. Yes, I know you keep working on a lot of things, and I wish you all the best and every success in your new and old ventures.

    Thanks once again for all you do. Have a love Christmas and Happy New Year as well. You just made my day a lot brighter. :)
    Harleena Singh recently posted..How to Take a Break from BloggingMy Profile

    • Harleena, You’ve once again proved me right by being the first to leave a comment on this post, and for sharing it on Facebook, Google+ and twitter.

      Yes, it would be nice to place the crown on your head, and I wish I could come over to India to take a snapshot of you wearing it lol.

      Thanks for being a regular user of this blog and for the sharing, comments, encouragement, etc. You are indeed a source of strength for me. Your regular visits and constructive comments have also helped a lot of persons visiting here. Thanks a million for showing your love to us.

      As for my other ventures, I depend on God to see me through, and also count on the support from all of you to succeed. Tweetlow wouldn’t be where it is today if people like you were not there from the outset. I hope to do more in the new year by His grace.

      Thanks once again for the care. Compliments of the season.

    • No-one deserves the crown more than you, Harleena – I’m delighted to see you at the top of this list – congratulations!

      Joseph – this is a lovely way to celebrate the year’s end and I’m very grateful to you for including me in this list of awesome bloggers.

      Many thanks – and I wish you every success in 2014 :)
      Susan Neal recently posted..Why Blog Posts Are Like Christmas GiftsMy Profile

      • Susan, thanks for stopping by. It’s been a little while, but I am happy you are here again. Yes Harleena deserves to be first. But you also deserve a mention on the list for your contributions.

        I am looking forward to a day when someone would overtake her, but I know it would not be easy lol.

        I wish you God’s blessings in this season of love.

      • Thank you for saying that Sue, but I think Joseph is just being too kind with his words and placing me right on top :)

        I think we all are here whenever our time zones allow us, and I just get a little earlier than all of you….either ways, great to be mentioned here with so many other awesome bloggers :)
        Harleena Singh recently posted..How to Take a Break from BloggingMy Profile

  2. Thanks so much for the mention Joseph! I’m truly honored :)

    And good to see a great bunch of my blogging friends too! Congrats to everyone.

    And I wish you all a very Merry Christmas (if you celebrate) and a Happy and a Prosperous New Year :)

  3. Wow! thanks Joseph. I really appreciate your kind effort in including me on your list. Well deserved at Harleena Singh, i use to feel her comment a lot and to my pal +Obasi, i appreciate you guys. Thanks for the mention and may God bless your hussle.

    • Robinson, you’ve been a good friend and so deserve a mention. I love to recognize people for whatever they do and those who do something (no matter how little) would always get accolades and those who have not done anything are encouraged as well.

      I wish I could mention everybody and not just the 50 on this list alone. But I want everyone to know that their little efforts are recognized.
      Thanks for your prayers. God bless you.

      I wish you a Merry Christmas a Prosperous 2014.

  4. Hi Joseph,

    I’m grateful to you for including me in your list, you ‘ve been so awesome over the years, your blog has also been a very nice source of inspiration to me.

    Visiting and sharing these awesome contents here over and over again is one way I can use to appreciate the good works you are doing here already.

    You have already made my day with this mention buddy. I love the crown, looks awesome too.

    Tweetlow and Mygigger are great start-ups, who will not like to share them anyway? I did ‘cos they were awesome and deserved to be noticed by bloggers and internet marketers that do frequent my blog from time to time.

    Do have a great day and a great season buddy, it’s been an awesome year for us already.

    • Obasi, you are a true friend. I can’t thank you enough for all the help and support. You have been there all through the year, both at times of celebration and at times of need. You deserve a mention.

      I appreciate the sharing, comments, and even the technical support each time you’re called upon to help out with issues here.

      Tweetlow and Mygigerr are great startups, no doubt. But not everyone is there to support such dreams. You have been around to help publicize them without asking for anything in return. You are awesome. I appreciate all the kindness.

      I wish you peace, love and success now and in the coming year. God bless you.

  5. Thanks a lot for the mention, Joseph!
    I really appreciate it! :)

    It’s great to see many names I know in this list.

    My best wishes for great success in 2014!

  18. Hi Joseph,

    Thank you very much for including me among the best friends. You have placed me after Harleena Sing and before big names like Adrienne Smith or Andy Bailey. WOW!! I am not that big, yet.

    I must say that you are the first who wrote a whole article about me and offered me that gift with the two plugins as a reward for my contribution to this blog.

    I was the first in that series you created especially for this purpose: to reward contributions to the blog and encourage new bloggers to come and participate.

    Great idea Joseph. When the time will come I will apply it, too. This is the mark of a vivid imagination and of a high level of creativity.

    Now, you are doing it again offering us a crown, the crown of friendship. Thank you for making me one of the comment kings. :) Great gift from a great man.

    Now, I want to say a word to the readers of this post. Efoghor Joseph is an awesome blogger and a very experienced internet marketer. Years of hard work and dedication have made this blog one of the most influential in the blogosphere.
    He is now an authority and soon the world will recognize him as one of the leading figures in the whole online business world. Follow him. You have nothing to lose but you have everything to gain.

    A Prosperous and Happy New Year!
    silviu recently posted..When A Wonderful Woman Tells Her Story: Graphic Designer Angela MccallMy Profile

    • Silviu, thanks for your regular visits and for the valuable comments too. You may not understand how big you are; we the observers should be in a better position to tell you how valuable you are. I keep saying it over and over again that I will recognize contributions made by people here. It’s purely without sentiments. When you do well, I should say it out for others to know how well you have done. It is my sincere desire to see everyone grow as I grow too. So whatever it would take me to help others to grow and be recognized, I will do it.

      You are one of those who made me proud in 2013; your contributions are part of what have taken us to the level we have attained on Business Success Guide. So why should the glory go to myself alone? You all deserve to share in the glory too. My dream for 2014 is to improve upon those areas where I didn’t do too well in 2013, including giving more rewards on a regular basis.

      Thanks for the endorsement. Thanks also for your sincere prayers. I look forward to the day God would answer that prayer and add me to the leading figures in the online business.

      I wish you the very best in your blogging career in 2014.

  19. Hi Joseph !

    • Samuel, thanks for stopping by. Yeah! You may not know everyone at the moment, but with a little more effort, I am sure you will get to know many of them this year. You can note down their blog URLs and start to pay their blogs visits one at a time. If you visit at least 2 a day, in the next 1 month you already have gotten in touch with all of them.
