Tips For New Bloggers. by UltimateDaniel(m): 11:16pm On Jun 29, 2015
The blogosphere is seriously becoming a competitive arena, funny enough, new bloggers come on board with a mentality of making easy online money, with less stress and qualification (all they need is a laptop and data). Well it might shock you to know that, it's actually a wrong mentality to have at the early periods of initiation into the blogosphere.
This are few tips I will encourage new bloggers to know.

1. Follow your passion not the crowd. I think, many thinks success in blogging comes only by blogging on the most wanted niche (entertainment and news). Well, is very good, but consider the fact that so many blogs ar pointing to that, why don't you choose a nice niche. Although that is also the niche I blog on... But engage your brain to work....

2. Get a professional design. Hey, no one would be ready to b an addicted reader on a non-beautiful and unstructural blog. Some little cash has settle that! I design a responsive blog for just 3k.

3. Get a custom domain. Getting custom domain presents you professional to anyone! You find it easy navigate round online. You are also on high chances to be approved by google adsense, with fulfilling some of their requirements.

4. Get a helping hand. The truth is, you can't touch all round alone. My site had a wonderful progress, the moment I decide to form a team (Supreme Gist Team) www.supremegist.com. So get people of your same passion to form a strong Team.

5. Get to know some little on programming languages. It will help you.

6. Plan to get adsense, with decent traffic and your own original material. You can also buy adsense from me.

7. Be a professional social media personal. You need to get knowledge on social media.

8. Pray for God's progress and avoid any fraud activity. That is what Daniel Nicholas hates. Visit my site www.supremegist.com

Wish all bloggers the best!!! Happy blogging...

Should Nigerians ignore development! My only problem is very few people among the so called Nigerian Bloggers knows the meaning of blogging!!! Sorry to say... Everyone is after the quick money making, forgetting that most famous bloggers began from somewhere. Only in Nigeria u will see an amateur blogger asking you how to make $200 per hour

Funny but painfully true..i have seen many upcoming bloggers who only think about how they can make money from blogging......but as you said....they forget that big websites all had a humble beginning.....they all think blogging is one hell'uva get quick rich scheme...and when they find out it's the opposite, they loose that initial "gra gra" wink wink

Bro. That's a stage you must face as a Blogger in Nigeria... Few top bloggers actually get comments on their blog! I will advice you use a third party comment "facebook comment" on your blog, as people tend to love a one way comment form than the default comment box with lots procedures!
Hope it help.

And..

Don't just slap adsense on your website as you are just getting started. Build a community of readers first before going the adsense route.

Nice points, OP. I have the following to add, though:

1. Think of something else other than celebrity gist/entertainment blogging. That niche is super-saturated! Truth is, even if Linda Ikeji were to start afresh today in that same niche, she'll be lost in the crowd. Stop chasing shadows by thinking your own blog can also become the next LIB or Bella Naija. Well, you might have some slim chances of success if you have some unique stuff to offer. But that will most likely take years! There are many other niches with much less competition and huge demand, such as travel (visa issues, etc), job search tips (not just vacancy copy-and-paste), small business/startup tips, real estate, autos, etc. This post will give you multiple niche ideas to choose from.

2. Regardless of what niche you opt for, you can only succeed with unique and original content. It's not compulsory that you always come up with something new, but you must always add your own unique perspective to whatever information you offer. If your plan is to copy and paste articles from other blogs, you won't make headway (reality, not a curse). Do you expect people to read some stuff on LIB or Bella Naija and till come over to your own entertainment blog to read the same copied story? So, you need to be creative and unique--this applies to any niche.

3. Start out seriously. Trying to be overly frugal will only kill your blogging dream prematurely. Invest in a self-hosted WordPress blog (I recommend MidPhase hosting) so your blog will have a more professional look, invest in ads (Nairaland ads is fine) so you can have some traffic, invest in a good mailing list (Click here to learn more) so your visitors will keep coming back each time you publish a new post. And most importantly, invest a lot of time to creation of unique content and building relationships with other bloggers in your niche.

4. Be patient. Forget about monetization from the start. Focus on growing your blog and building a huge audience. Once you achieve that, everything about monetization will fall into place. Linda Ikeji blogged for 4 years before earning a kobo from her blog. It took me close to 2 years to earn my first kobo from my blog. If what you're looking for is a way to make money within few days to weeks, then blogging isn't for you.

Finally, I strongly recommend this page for every aspiring blogger. It will teach you all you need to know to make money from blogging and make it a real business.

Nice insight OP. another recommendation is to join a community of like minded individuals who are committed to creating value from blogging. One good example is the bloggers lab group on Facebook.

Its time we correct people's notion about blogging and online business in general. Once you mention online business, the first thing a Nigerian pictures Is scam. Once you mention blogging, the first thing they picture is gossip and Linda ikeji . someone has to curb this trend. Blogging is relatively new in our climate, and we're already making terrible mistakes about it.

This is the number thing to consider.......so many want to blog because of Linda Ikeji or my friend Akeem Rotimi. they feel writing just one post can give them the range rover sport car they dream about. check yourself if u actually have the passion to meet with people's need online, if yes...then u re good to go
