Blogging in Nigeria in 2021

     Blogging in Nigeria has been one of the best avenues in which youths that are tech savvy have been able to make a decent living.

When you look at how blessed the African continent is in terms of natural resources and then try to relate it to the level of employment ration in the continent. The result that you will get will be very dissapointing and surprising.

This is because in a normal sense, Africa should outdo alot of countries in the world in terms of employment rate, technology and economic growth due to the abundance in natural resources that it has. 

This is very far from it as most of the poorest countries in the world are African countries with so much high index of poverty and the sad news is that it gets worse as the days go by.

Blogging in Nigeria

Most of this is due to the lack of job opportunities and high unemployment rate in Nigeria and Africa at large.

Irrespective of this level of unemployment rate, some certain group of Nigerians are really making it big and basking millions of dollars yearly with just blogging.

Due to this level of success from people like Linda Ikeji and a numerous number of others, some Nigerians have tapped into the average growing world of blogging in order to earn a living while writing on ideas they are passionate about and solving the problems of people all around the world.

This passion has not been less rewarding but very rewarding for some people.

To some people who do not know how to go about it, I has turned out to be frustrating and alot of people quit  very early just because majority of people just want to blog and make money instead of providing solutions.

What makes people quit blogging too early emanates from alot of factors like;
  • not having a sound understanding of SEO
  • not writing to share ideas but writing with the aim of making money only
  • Using a bad hosting company


Blogging is a very lucrative area of specialisation that reaps massive benefits in the long run.

One of the things that must be really considered in the world of blogging that brings great benefits is writing great contents. 

When you write great contents, it becomes easy for people to bookmark your blog as a go-to place when they have a difficulty in finding solutions to a particular problem. 

When the confidence of people grow with respect of having your blog as a solution centre for their challenges, it becomes easy for them to be a regular visitor to your blog and also share your post to thousands of people in the social media.
When this happens, you start taking in money as a reward for your hard work while still having time to enjoy the money you earn if you turn it to a full time work.

The beginning might be tough as you may not really see alot of increase in traffic but don't let it discourage you.

Instead of being discouraged, continue producing up to date articles that is aimed at solving the problems of people in a particular niche that you choose to blog about.

You can blog about sport niche on topics like kayaks and can learn about things like symptoms of a bad primer bulb.

A great boat blog is also a great choice too where you can blog things about boats.

When you comply to SEO principles and keep producing quality contents, your blog in no time will start to rank well in search engines which in turn leads to alot of free traffic to your blog.
