Linda Ikeji thanks supporters, says she’s working on new website

Linda Ikeji

Famous blogger, Linda Ikeji, by Thursday morning was still working on setting up a new website to replace her Blogger site, which was shut down by Google on Wednesday.

Late Wednesday night, on Twitter, Ms. Ikeji posted to her over 400,000 followers, “Oh wow! Thanks guys for all the love and support. I’m overwhelmed. Trying to get a new site…please bear with me. Long live LIB. Kisses…”

Ms. Ikeji, in a previous tweet following the shutdown, had informed her followers that the blog was still up on; apparently, a stop-gap arrangement.

In a post on Wednesday, Ms. Ikeji alleged that all her names had been acquired by cybersquatters. She said she had no plans of buying any of them for an exorbitant fee.

Ms. Ikeji who started blogging in 2006 was hit hard by accusations of plagiarism by some intellectual rights activists, some of whom alleged she stole and republished their contents without permission.

According to the blogger, the campaign for her downfall,was spearheaded by another blogger, Aye Dee, who owns 15past8. Ms. Ikeji, in a blog post on Tuesday, accused Mr. Dee of also lifting articles from other sites and of being a cybersquatter, who owned the domain

Google could not be immediately reached for comments. An official who responded to our call denied knowledge of the suspension of the website.

    Since she’s too stingy to buy-back her names at exorbitant fees, she should take her time and rebuild…
    When she finally bounces back, my hunch is that curiosity will bring back not just her teaming followers, but many more…
    So, na waiting game… if she’s confident, she can maximize her popularity and explode even brighter. Stingy bloodsucker!

      C’mon dawg.. You sound really angry. Chai! You might actually help Nigeria’s ailing power sector if you combine all these NEGATIVE energy with the POSITIVE efforts being made by the Nigerian government. Lol

    • Google is the one that shut her blog.

      After setting-up her website, let her continue with Plagiarism
      and let’s see if she won’t be in trouble again.

        I hate it when people write like this. I dont see anywhere she has being proven guilty . Google has restored her blog, in a of Record time of 24 hours. Calm down.

        • Why did Google INITIALLY shut her blog?
          Google investigates before shutting any blog.
          They don’t simply shut a blog simply because of complaints.

          Shame on Google for Not conducting PROPER investigations before shutting
          her blog which they had to restore due to their negligence.

    • Google has restored her blog.

      Shame on Google for Not conducting PROPER investigations before shutting her blog
      which then made Google restore her blog.

    The victim is vilified, and the thief is celebrated, only in Nigeria.

    The old, cost-free, profitable model of copying materials from hundreds of websites can no longer be sustained. In the old model, whatever Linda received as advert fee was 100% her profit. Now she has to pay journalists and proof readers to develop her own content, and possibly pay legal fees as well. All this will cut deep into her profit. The second issue is whether her new website, without access to contents from hundreds of web pages, will be able to attract enough audience. The third is whether companies would like to continue advertising with a plagiarist.

    Plagiarism is a crime and Linda should have known but the remote cause of her current predicament appears to be the indiscretion of advertising her wealth, made from a website that was made available free of charge by Google.
