Blogging in Nigeria has now become common these days as people create a blog site for many reasons. Most foreign writers would advise that you must have the passion to blog before you start the blogging journey. Nigerian writers would quickly jump into the conclusion that the sole reason for having a blog or creating a website is to make quick money and be like Linda Ikeji.
Trust me, blogging is not an easy job as it requires patience, dedication, time and most of all willingness to learn. I am writing this post because many people have asked me questions like- How did I create my blog? How do i design a website in Nigeria? Can I make money through my blog? e.t.c
Before I answer most of these questions I stated above, i would want to advise you against extremely hungry Nigerians who promise how to teach you to make money online with ease through selling E-books on how to create a blog. I can tell you solemnly that it is your money they would use to make money online in Nigeria without explaining anything to you.
How Can I Create A Blog In Nigeria
To create a blog In Nigeria, you will need to follow the steps below
STEP 1: Have the following ready:
- A Computer (Personal Computer PC)
- A Tablet with internet connection
- A modem
- Social Media account (Facebook, Twitter and pinterest)
- Books on the topic (niche) you want to focus on
STEP 2: Decide on the blog name you would want to use- many find it difficult in deciding on which blog name, titles and description to use. Always use name that are similar to your content. For example, Nigerianinfopedia.com was created in order to inform, educate and entertain Nigerians.
STEP 3: You should know that there are two types of blog. The free blog and the paid hosting blog. If you want to create a free blog, I’ll suggest you start with blogger.com. Blogger is a free free Google hosting site that allows you create a blog. It normally ends with the extension “.blogspot.com”. E.g lindaikeji.blogspot.com, igmusthearthis.blogspot.com, romancathoicculture.blogspot.com.
