It is interesting to mention that it is a countdown list - from the 25th to the 1st most popular article.
When I started looking at the list, I was confident that at least one of my articles would make it. But when I reached the 10th place, my confidence began to wane. I continued the countdown and behold - the 8th most read article was mine. It is titled, My Journey to Lund, Sweden - A Life-changing Experience.
At this point, I became even more confident that perhaps, with seven more articles to go, another article of mine would make it. Hence I continued the countdown.
I was pleasantly surprised when I got to 2nd place and realized that Dunia's 2nd most read article, titled Young Girls Face Breast Ironing in Cameroon, was written by me.
I would like to seize this opportunity to thank Dunia's Publisher and Editorial Director for approving my articles and for giving me the opportunity to reach a wider audience through writing. I look forward to greater cooperation in 2012.
I would also like to acknowledge all the other contributors whose articles made to Dunia's top 25 in 2011. In this age of information technology, with a lot of material out there on the internet, it is not easy to get internet users to actually read what ordinary writers have to offer.
