Hi there, I’m Martins.
I’m a blogger and writer living and working from West Africa. When I’m not squeezing my creative juice, I’m checking out other blogs, reading a book, watching comedy sitcoms, or out taking a stroll.
I am the writer of The Outing (a popular short comedy) and the book Martins Diaries (Comedy). I am a blogger, storyteller and content writer, and internet entrepreneur—an Environmental Scientist (B.Sc)—a lover of music, movies, cartoons, all forms of comedy, books, documentaries (wildlife), Ted Talks, and inspirational videos.
This is my homebase—my personal blog where I share my imperfect thoughts that I hope doesn’t suck and any relevant recent milestone I reach—with a little bit of humour to make you feel better, and put a smile and laughter on your face.
I will love to tell you I’m a professional writer, adviser, etc. But who dash monkey banana? Just take whatever you see. 😁
I’m just in my mid-twenties, so obviously I haven’t got life figured out. Rather I struggle with my imperfections everyday. So I’m no better than you. There are so many things I can’t do that you probably can. For example, I can’t hold my breathe for up to one hour!
For as long as I can remember, I have been writing stories—crappy perhaps—but as at time of writing them as a young boy, they were great! Down the line, around 2011, I decided to take those stories to the internet—and save trees 😊.
After getting diagnosed with tetralogy of fallout (a heart condition) and having a heart surgery in 2012, I decided I needed to develop a sense of humor, and dabbled into comedy writing.
As @martinswrites, I exercise my new found passion and reputation for creating useful contents and amusing write-ups, and telling stories with humor. Who doesn’t love a good laugh?
I’ve always loved writing, but having an impact on people is the best reward. Tada! @martinswrites cares, right?
So if you’ll like to start your day with a positive vibe?—Or you’re already upset from having a rough day—at work? stuck in traffic? etc—and you just wanna blow off some steam and have a good laugh real quick? Then you have come to the right place!

For as long as I can remember, I have had a flair for writing, which drove me into the world of blogging in order to share my content online to reach more audiences, keep track of my writings, and of course save more money on buying books, and in effect, I got all geeky on Blogger platform and ultimately WordPress.
So when I’m not writing, I work with other writers to help them:
- Set up (and if need be manage and update) their personal blogs for chump change.
- Create content (e.g. blog articles, short stories, books, comedy skits, etc).
