What does it take to blog the right way?
Identify The Right Blogging Niche
If you are not blogging on the right niche, you can blog for 100 years without seeing a dime. I see plenty of bloggers just following other successful bloggers and trying to recreate what they are doing with the hope of making it just like them. That is not how to blog.
A successful blogger is the one who is able to create a profitable niche for himself (probably different from what others are doing) and take it to the next level.
As the saying goes “If you can identify the problem, it is half solved”
So Let talk about the solution below
– You must find out the right way to blog.
Step 1). – Develop A Professional Responsive Blog
A blog is likened to a building, a good building will have to be solid from the foundation up if it hopes to stand the test of time. When your blog is not solid from the foundation, you risk wasting valuable times and resources for nothing.
Step 2). -Create Content That Attracts
You must learn how to create quality content that attracts massive traffic within minutes. Learn some of the skills that professional bloggers have used over the years to rack up content that makes millions of naira in revenue
Step 3). – Invest in Blogging Knowledge:
Learn from people who have been blogging for years and have become extremely profitable doing it the right way. There are some who are making money from blogging but are still not pro bloggers, if you follow their example of blogging, you will fail woefully.
Now You have learned HOW to START a blog in Nigeria

Bottom line: If you want to start a serious blog, you’ll need to spend a few dollars to get a domain name and web hosting.
Example: Domain Name …………..N4000/year
Hosting…………………….from N5000/ year
