What it means to get published

Have you ever experienced something in your life that impacted you so much? And every time you get the chance, you tell your story again and again? I have. And this story is about my thesis.

I have written a lot of blog posts about thesis writing. Why? Because taking graduate studies makes you want to talk a lot about thesis writing. If that interests you, just click on the title you wish to read from the list:

After two years of grinding through my masters, God provided me favor through Sir Mike, my thesis adviser. How? He encouraged me to submit a part of my thesis for an international conference. But it’s not just about submitting something right away. When he told me to submit something for the conference, it meant that I had to work on a paper that meets the conference requirements. I learned a lot from the process, and I would like you to learn from it also. It’s not just about being qualified for an international academic conference. It’s also about being prepared for opportunities that come along your way. You can read the blog post I wrote about it through the link below:

After the initial submission, peer reviews, and revision, which spanned for almost three months, I received a confirmation that I am qualified to present my paper at the conference. But it just did not end there. Being eligible to present the paper also meant that I needed to prepare my finances, apply for a visa, and work through all the logistics required to get there.

As much as I want to tell you about all the anxieties I’ve gone through, God has been faithful, and it’s what only matters. Because of God’s faithfulness, I get to tell you about my experience at the conference. You can read about it through the link below:

So why do I have to tell you all of that? Because I want to show you what it means to be published. It’s not an overnight business. We always have ideas to share, but it takes someone to validate them and consider them worthy of somebody else’s time. Whenever you share my blog posts, that’s you confirming my work and considering them worthy of somebody else’s time.

I have to admit that it’s been my childhood dream to be published. That’s why I write because I want to be better at it, hoping that I will be so good enough to be published. If you’ve been reading my blog posts for some time (where I choose to publish my own work), you never hear much about my technical writings. But now that I have something to show you about what I do with my profession, here’s where you can find my paper.

Never think I made it there overnight. There’s no overnight success (only online).
