This is a response to a thread where someone is asking if blogging is dead

https://www.nairaland.com/6480905/blogging-still-profitable

please don't contact me am not ready to share my mail or phone contact

Let me introduce my self : A Graduate from UNIBEN, searching for work after graduation from Lagos to Abuja, spent over 2 years submitting CV. Even tried PH,had to give up.
I recently opened this username for reason, let's leave this story for another day.

I am a seasoned YouTuber for years where I make videos and all sort, earning month to month doing reviews and the rest.



But in the past 2 years and few months I have dived into blogging to test the ground and i must tell you blogging is not dead.
It depends on your approach, there are over 3.5 searches done on Google on daily basis and it's increasing day by day.

I was recently paid few days ago and below is my earnings from a blog.

When you mentioned blogging or blog what comes to the mind of most Nigerians is Linda ikeji the celebrity blogger who just occupies a tiny space or niche , I always refer her as a gossip blogger.
Blogging is far More than that. blogging is broad, from medical, tech, finance, fitness which are broad niche to micro or sub niche like dating, fishing, sewing, swimming, recipes, parenting, cars, motorbike, wine, bear etc. I could list over 200 sub niches.

Here are some comment on that thread




bluefilm:
The answer is NO.

Blogging is DEAD.

Blogging has come to stay and it goes beyond gist or gossip which linda ikeji popularise.
I earned close to 2m plus this month.
Jessicaos:
It's is. Just patience
Yes blogging takes patience, a blog should pick up from the 7th month , if everything is done right by the blogger then traffic should be coming in from 7th to 8th month as at the time of writing this post then the peak period should be 24 months.


Lagbaja88:
Years ago there were many bloggers on nairaland. They all went into oblivion lol. Instagram blogging is the way

Most successful blogger are on nairaland and I have contact with a few who i connected with to share some ideas though some choose to comment on thread and shy away from discussion on earnings etc.
There is a guy here whose sitz makes 4000 USD daily. shocked

Olodo24:
No. It's now better to blog on Twitter and Instagram as a newbie. Even LIB is dry these days

Linda ikeji blog is not dry in fact she makes millions of naira in a single day from adsense. I can't say how much she earns but believe me she got an insane traffic that can guarantee more than 15,000 USD a single day.. Believe me she might make more than this. Most of her readers are Nigerians in diaspora who wants to know gist back home.

www.nairaland.com/attachments/13440392_img20210424030721_jpegcde9c4890b3d150370bca6286bee8293

I got to know that via some tools, which shows that more people a from abroad gets news from there.

Lastlook:


The answer is YES... never mind anyone that say NO... You want to know why, i said YES?

Sorry to say this but most Nigeria startup wanna be are lazy set of people. They plan on making profit asap... Some even think, its like a goldmine, you start today, you make it today.

Nigerians are not lazy, Nigerians are great people with best brain only the society and our leaders are making us look dumb.

I know a Nigerian that makes 25k to 30k USD monthly on apps from play store.

You should understand that a sole aim of going into business is not to laugh.. See I don't blog for passion rather for money. That's it




Blogging is saturated.
There is room for everyone. Believe me. Blogging at the moment is not saturated. In fact Google once made it clear that over 30% of search quarries are something that haven't been searched before and over 3.5 billion searches are done daily.


The key here is identifying those searches and picking the ones that are not talk about on any site or few sites. Avoid the most competitive ones as a starter.



To earn high, don't target Nigerians as advertisers in Nigeria are not willing to pay as high when compare with USA, UK, Australia, Canada, etc.
If you get 2 thousand page views daily you can get approximately the payment paid up there.


Picking your fight at the weakest point is your chances of success. Finally Avoid copy and paste

Blogging is dead in Nigeria and who dey even read blog this days gan self
Many Nigerian blog are full with copy and paste contents
Many Nigerian bloggers are lazy don't want to research and create a meaningful content
Many Nigerian bloggers don't see blogging as an investment
Many Nigerian bloggers blog for AdSense
After AdSense have rejected their shitty blogs they abandon the blog to die on the internet
It just endless

There are real bloggers making their living off adsense here on nairaland. Believe me

Earning from blog is beyond Adsense and until Nigerian bloggers understand this very reality, they'll still find blogging a dead venture.

I work with an Indian freelancer who manages over 20 blogs (not owned by her), but she has editorial permission and with admin consent.

She publishes over 10 guest posts from me every week and I pay average of $25 depending on the particular blog authority and rankings.

Now, do the maths, if only me supplies up to 10 articles at $25 per article in a week and she also have other clients, how much do you think she makes in a month?

Adsense is the key and should not be kicked aside, there are others that pays higher like ezoic, adtrive,Medianet etc . Most guest post ask for do follow links which I find not really my thing. Although some might like it.

There are other ways to earn like affiliate which I intend diving in soon... What do you think about vpn niche where each affiliate commission comes monthly as long as your referer keeps subscribing

Adsense is not any key! Monetization of blog is beyond Adsense, but most Nigerian bloggers believe Adsense is all and without it, they easily give up!

The only prove that can convince me is if you post the blog url here, and evidence that it belongs to you. Let me examine the blog and see for myself. cool

Finally! A successful blogger to debunk the myth that some ill-informed ones are using to discourage others from blogging.

Let me further clear the air on this: The truth about those people who have come online to teach blogging and have gone silent is that they have learned that it's better to stay silent and enjoy their gains in secret.

I have practically abandoned my blog where I have taught blogging secrets for years. The reason? Most Nigerians are freebie hunters and they are not ready to put in the required patience, sacrifice, and consistency.

When I observed that the blog wasn't earning anything close to my Adsense-monetized and affiliate niche sites, I decided to focus on those. No more cranking out lengthy posts for free to people who won't value them. I know at least 3 other Nigerian bloggers who are in this same boat.

Final shot: Express all the doubts and skepticism that you can. Blogging still works and those who are in the know are still raking in their millions of naira monthly from it. In short, it's Not dead!

Of course Blogging is not dead, most of us want to become the next Linda Ikeji by just copying and pasting other peoples content.

There is no way on earth you will make money like that.

If you are serious about blogging, you should know the following

1. You need to understand SEO
2. You must do keyword research to know if the content you are writing is being searched by people
3. You must be creative
4. Do not do copy and paste
5. If you won't be original or you won't get access to breaking news do not do gossip and entertainment blogs , some top blogs have already dominated that niche and they pay people to source for content, it will be hard to beat them
6. You need to be consistent
7. You need access to the right tools
8. You need to look for other ways to monetize your blog
9. You need a good hosting
10. Be ready to do marketing, infact spend 80 percent of your time marketing and 20 percent of your time creating content
11. You need a mentor

If you would like me to mentor you, kindly join my Freelancer and online business group here.

Please this is not going to be free. I have come to understand that free trainings are never effective. It won't be expensive either. I will ensure everyone can afford it. Also
