Welcome to Mary’s Blog

My Straight Outta Ijebu Photo

WELCOME to my personal blog where I talk about items, topics, events, trends, and occurrences that pique my interest.


I am a WordPress advocate & digital nomad!

I believe everyone should run a personal blog and I enjoy backpacking.

I currently work as a Support Engineer at PMPro, a WordPress membership plugin firm.

I run WPSlay, a WordPress website maintenance & support company.

I am a co-founder at Gbefunwa, a WordPress Managed Hosting firm.

In my spare time, I teach digital skills freely at our village Uwani Hub to women & teenagers, and I volunteer for the Nigerian & African WordPress Community. To find out more about me and my works, do visit my professional website at MaryJob.com!

Thank you.

On my blog you will find random musings and information on whatever pops up in my head, otherwise explicitly stated. 

I love to meet new and exciting people, network, exchange ideas, and learn new things and cultures. I love mysteries, my interests lie in going deep into information society technologies and Law. Yes, you read me right, studying Law is still on my to-do list. I use social media purposefully and I enjoy exploring tech gadgets. 

I love traveling and adventures! I am always a digital nomad at heart and soul!


I enjoy experiencing new places and I definitely love taking photos. I like to take pictures of people, food, myself, and any sight that piques my interest.

So who doesn’t love a good healthy meal ehn? The irony is I am not a fan of cooking, but I love great-tasting meals. Want to win me over? Offer me some great-tasting chocolate cheesecake, preferably from Caffè Tranche By Araba or a trip to any Java House of Africa, or the Mediterraneo Restaurant. These people have the best meals and desserts. And it’s not just about the tasty meal, it’s the presentation of the meal that makes me drool.

Jajajajaja…sighs oh yeah, where was I? OK. So I also have a mission to travel around the world!! And I love the saying “All izz well” from the movie – 3 idiots! Don’t tell me you haven’t seen that movie🧐??

  1. This is an amazing piece, I look forward to more amazing contents from your blog posts and before I forget I’ll need to go and dive for the hidden treasures you talk about.


        1. Same crazy political atmosphere over here. I do hope and pray our dear African countries can find peace and thrive and become the best cities in the world one day.

          1. e you thinking of explaining how and where you can stop and such. We are hoping to do that. we traveled across Italy and Sicily and did some workaways but found a lot of workaways treated you like slaves and others like family. Having said all that, we have bitten by the bug and aim to start travelling in Feb 17 with online work xx

  5. Hi M.J.!
    I know Danny, Michael Rios, Tessa, Sherrie Miranda, Dennis Cardiff…
    I just wanted to come by to thank you for the kind words you wrote about my 71 tips article on Danny Ray’s blog today. I am glad you found the tips valuable. Thank you for the kind words.
    I saw you talking with Sherrie about Africa. I teach Medieval Africa to my 7th graders. Western Africa… Ghana, Mali…
    Thanks again for the kind words.

    1. Wooow. That’s awesome Janice. I guess, oh not guess, am certain you are filled with awesomeness. Lovely to make your acquaintance. Now we are friends. (Am assuming… Haha). I bookmarked your tips page, am going to print it out and explore, check listing. The emphasis all boils down to networking, we cannot underestimate the necessity of networking in today’s age. Would love to sit in your class and pretend to be a 7th grader so I can learn from you. Am from Nigeria and I reside here. Been to Ghana, Togo, and I look forward to exploring more. Cheerios.

  6. What does “IJEBU” stand for? I’ve heard of “Straight Outta Compton” before but that’s about it.
    Please forgive my ignorance! 😉 ❤
    Sherrie Miranda's historically based, coming of age, Adventure novel “Secrets & Lies in El Salvador” is about an American girl in war-torn El Salvador:
    Her husband made a video for her novel. He wrote the song too:

    1. Hi Sherrie, oh no but you are not being ignorant. Don’t you know no one person knows it all. Ijebu is the name of a town and tribe of people from Ogun State, in Nigeria. I believe you know Nigeria is a country in the western part of Africa, and Africa is a continent with about 57 Different Countries. (Not so sure, but I know it’s between 50 and 59). Since straight outta Compton says I am from Compton in the US. Hence Straight outta Ijebu says I am from Ijebu in Nigeria. Do you get?

      1. Ha, half of everything, huh? I know the feeling. In recent years, I have found out I may be part gypsy AND I may be related to Elizabeth Cady Stanton! (My mom’s maiden name is Cady!)
        Anyway, I look forward to learning more about you!
