Lessons for You


In the list of popular blogs in Nigeria, there are various lessons to learn from them for aspiring bloggers and bloggers hoping to make ground in their blogging career.

The lessons from these blogs listed above are:


• Consistency is key



When starting a blog, there are so many things you might find difficult such as writing blog posts every day. 

In fact I also face this writers block when writing a blog post. But in order to hit the ground in your blogging career and build your traffic, you need to be consistent with your posting calendar. 

Consistency is the key to a successful blogs. All the blogs listed here write new blog posts every day while some write everyweek.

This consistency is the answer to the success of their blog.


• Investment is Important



In order to build a successful blog, you need to invest both your time and money in order to speed up the growth of your blog. 

Some of these blogs hire content writers to write their blog posts which free them of the stress of writing alone.


• Patience is what you need



Patience is very important in online businesses. Blogging is not a get rich quick scheme, so exercise patience and be driven by passion.


• Accept Guest Posts on Your Blogs



The truth is you cannot write all your guest posts yourself if you need to grow your blog as possible. 

Accepting guest post on your blog will help you in the long run. Many of these blogs accept guest posts which help them to keep their blog updated and their audience engaged.


• Quality Content still remain King



Quality content is very important to the success of your blogs. When writing, ensure you cover every question you think might be bothering your audience and make your content unique. 

The truth is that there is no 100% unique content, many of our writings are always inspired from someone’s write up. 

But ensure you try your possible best to pass your message to your reader in your blog post.


• Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is Queen



Yes, SEO is queen. If you have written the best content on a topic and have failed to optimize it for search engine then you have just wasted that good content. The queen is to be a support to the king.

After writing the unique content, you hit the publish button and expect traffic to start 
trooping in.

No!


You have only completed 30% of the task, the main work is to optimize your post for search engine and keep sharing to social networks to drive traffic to your content.

You Can Always Make Money Blogging In Nigeria

This is also an interesting part of blogging as blogging is now a career or better still a profession to make money with. So, if you are a blogger, I challenge you to think of oyur blog as a businesss and not just a hobby or passion. Yes, you have to be passionate about it in order to succeed.

CONCLUSION

 

The list of popular blogs can continue as there are many popular blogs which I have missed. 

But the main truth here is you cannot list popular blogs according to their traffic alone but have to give reverence to the number of comments on the blogs, the blog’s design and other factors that matter.

Nothing good comes easy. To build a successful blog, you need to work very hard to consistently update your blog.
