Firewall or not: How to read Linda Ikeji blog and other blocked sites in a corporate organization

Me: Forgive me, Father for I have sinned. It’s been 30 days since my last confession.  These are my sins: I did a “pretty bad thing” today.

Father: Speak my child…


In other news,

Linda Ikeji’s blog, Stella Dimokokorkus, nairaland.com,, reddit.com are examples of websites that are blocked by organizations to prevent workers from whiling away time on those websites (rightly so).

Sometimes work can get so boring that you actually find watching wet paint dry on a wall more interesting than doing actual work. Till today…

If your corporate network has blocked these websites but allows google.com then you are covered.

1. Go to translate.google.com

2. type the blocked website you wish to visit e.g. lindaikeji.blogspot.com in the box to the left

3. Click on the generated link in the box on the right.

4. You would get a message saying the website you are trying to translate is in english

5. Click on the “visit original page” link

6. You would be able to view the blocked website now but without images and javascript disabled.


Me: ****crickets****

Father: huh?
