If you’re seeing this interview draft, it means you’ve recently published on HackerNoon a story that the community found interesting and/or valuable. For this reason, we would like to help the community get to know you better as well as find out some writing tips from you.

While this template is automatic, our interest in the answers below is genuine and our human editors (and some cyborg wannabes) will review it before publishing.

So let’s start! Tell us a bit about yourself. For example, name, profession, and personal interests.

I am Mosobalaje M. Abimbola (Ha-beem-boh-la) with a writing identity: King Abimbola. A creative writer with a background in physical sciences, but switched career to become a B2B cum B2C writer who integrates stories and content into digital marketing strategies.

Interesting! What was your latest Hackernoon Top story about?

My latest top story is about the burden I have seen people bear in the labor market and how we, as humans, struggle with jobs with AI standing in our way of meeting with recruiters or potential hiring personnel.

From conversation, observation, and experience, I wrote “Real-life stories about how AI is taking human jobs.”

Do you usually write on similar topics? If not, what do you usually write about?

Yes, I write on topics related to Cloud-based software. However, in my latest article, I explored how they affect us as humans and block our chances of career opportunities.

My passion for writing is to give relatable information and experience to my readers about prominent software that can make their lives easier and more interesting if not necessarily better.

Great! What is your usual writing routine like (if you have one?)

It all begins with observation. I observe a lot, quietly. I think about many possible topics to write about and how they can serve the purpose of information and relief to human lives.

In my process of thinking about the applicability of a subject, I can terminate the intention to write on a subject or topic or be convinced of its relevance.

However, once decided, I gather information. Write them as snippets on my sticky notes or other similar tools such as Trello, to collate my thoughts. I have the outlines; then I begin to develop the body, not necessarily chronologically.

Once written, I then think of how to move the outlines or paragraphs to let the thoughts flow as a seamless piece.

Often, my writing is research-intensive, too, especially when exploring a terrain I am not familiar with, or I have to use a tool to know what it is all about. It is always about developing relevant content.

Afterward, I implement SEO strategies into them to make them discoverable to the relevant audience.

Being a writer in tech can be a challenge. It’s not often our main role, but an addition to another one. What is the biggest challenge you have when it comes to writing?

The biggest challenge is brainstorming ideas. Not because there aren’t issues to write on, but because, as I have said, I am often bothered with the application of ideas.

I always try to think of topics and modes of presenting them to a targeted audience. The synchronization of both thoughts makes brainstorming challenging.

What is the next thing you hope to achieve in your career?

I hope to keep being a better writer and explore writing styles using different types of writing such as copywriting and creative story writing to trigger engagement and entertainment.

Human behaviors in the digital space are always evolving, thus, making that balance tilt. I am still working on that.

Wow, that’s admirable. Now, something more casual: What is your guilty pleasure of choice?

Did you say guilty pleasure? Ah-ah 😀 One can have pleasure without guilt or guilt without pleasure, yeah?

On a lighter note, I just love to wander the imaginative world of different AI tools and the minds of their creators. I like myself some good action movies too when I can afford to watch them.

Do you have a non-tech-related hobby? If yes, what is it?

Well…I am not sure if it is non-tech related. I do music, and sometimes, play around voicing some common or uncommon scripts. Both hobbies require tech, you know? So, I don't know if they count as non-tech-related.

I also like to explore the world of philosophy and religion, especially the Christian view of it.

What can the HackerNoon community expect to read from you next?

As of now, I have no idea. I have a couple of drafts ranging from politics to technology and some AI tools. I also have a certification test I am eyeing, which I hope to write “why this among others”, on.

You know that sometimes the inspiration just pushes you to complete some stuff before others? I mean, I have a completed draft on some chatbot tool since September last year, but I have not been so motivated to write it into that “acceptable” format for my target audience.

So, whichever motivation comes first with satisfaction, that’s what I’ll publish next.

What’s your opinion on HackerNoon as a platform for writers?

HackerNoon is a gem. I believe it is resourceful and engaging. It offers writers the privilege of having personal portfolios. If I had known of a tool like this when I started writing as a freelancer, I would have published so much stuff by now.

I like that it offers visibility for writers through different publicity channels such as social media, add categories, meet the writers, email push, Daily Tech beats, and top stories, among others. It is GREA and to the T!

Thanks for taking time to join our “Meet the writer” series. It was a pleasure. Do you have any closing words?

Class ain’t over yet; I’d rather leave my words open! Ha-ah! Thank you, it has been such a privilege doing this with you.
