As social creatures, the experience of belonging to a community is very important to us. What we cannot do in person we often chose to do online. This brought about the term “social networking” which has the capacity to drive huge profit for people who know how to harness it very well.
Blogs (web log):
Exist in many forms, most of which are personal (individual keep) and public, definitely created to achieve a specific goal. The goals now depends on individual and their carrier or passion hence the advent of the statement “anybody can blog but not everybody can create value or money blogging.
Blogging is a profession which you must have to acquire as a skill before projecting yourself into it. It is a way of writing to the benefit of others and the same time enjoying what you are passionate about while making money also. No writing and no blogging but it does not mean you have to be a writer before you can blog. In fact, anybody can be trained in the carrier of blogging. The issue there is, do you have what you are passionate about or have you any experience in the past?
That brings us to the question, WHO IS SUPPOSED TO BE A BLOGGER?
Well, with our negative concept and the way we carry out certain activities sometimes, I have come to realize that most young ones failed to imbibe the culture of value before the physical money. But this is what you have to know, there is nothing that you can equate value with, value is bigger than money and there is no real money without actual value. Remember, it is good to have hope but do not forget that hope is never a strategy.
So, assuming you dream to bundle millions do not forget to create value as a channel to seeing those millions become a reality. Due to the mind-set our predecessors created for us long time ago, we intend to pursue money forgetting what brings about the increase in money. Few years ago, like early 2009/10 when blogging was starting to gain popularity in Nigeria. A lot of young people went into blogging with that mentality of rushing where we can quickly get the money. But to no avail their hopes were dashed on the ground as early as they could and recently, so many of them failed as bloggers.
Though there are bloggers in Nigeria but, there are few contemporary blog in this country now. Many misunderstood the idea of blogging and approached it in the wrong directions. That is why most internet marketers and bloggers could avert immediately, trying to convince the people with the magazine model of blogging alone.
Then, what is the advent of social network? Is it not blog? Why are international bloggers like Yaro Starak of Brisbane (Australia) making millions of dollar annually with just one blog?
We have to find a way to solve this earlier problems, we like to do what others did that is why everybody made the mistake of venturing into magazine and news model of blogging like Linder Ikeji and others and when they could not make a dime from Google adsense which is the only source of income they knew. Then, it became obvious to them that they should quit.
Anybody can be a blogger. I hope I have answered this lingering question, Youths, middle aged and old people. Women and men can be a blogger. And you can blog about anything. Blogging is not meant for youths alone as it is the case with most people, we all thought that blogging is all about news no! blogging is an e-publishing technique that guarantee that any person can get his/her work published without seeing money as hindrances towards creating values or exposing that which could add values to people with time.
OK, imagine if blogging is for young people alone, what about an educationist who may be blogging about how to become a professional teacher. Is it going to be a young person who had no such experiences or knew anything about that before? No! This supposed to involve a retired teacher or head of schools that had wealth of experience and managerial attitude towards human beings. So, blogging is not restricted to any group, age or even gender.
SOLUTION TIPS: It is a means to showcase what it is you have which you can give out to add values to individuals, most beneficial when you are blogging out of experience and passion.
As a teacher, musician, doctors etc. you can blog as a means to add value to individuals who may want to learn something from your intellectual capacity.
Amazingly, you can blog by learning about topics which you do not know much about but you are passionate for. Try to equip yourself with the required knowledge about that particular topic positioning yourself as a professional so far you know what you are capable of doing.
You could be amazed what I do in one of my blogs, I blog about time and its essence because time is money. And I try to make individuals who live by procrastination to see the importance of waking up with time to pursue their dreams because, I was a victim of procrastination before so, I have had quit a reasonable experience for having procrastinated very well even when I had hope of what I could do with my life.
But those days, I did not really take action as early as I supposed to do. Then what did I do? I quickly converted my dis advantage into value which at last is yielding some appreciable amount of money for me now and is not going to stop unless I did stop.
So, your little beginning may be your life changing source tomorrow. Do not neglect whatever it is that you derive joy in doing or if learned. Turn your passion into income; enrich your brain with knowledge while making money. With blogging, everybody is a millionaire if right niche is carved out of your passion. Old, young, male or female blogging is for you.
It only depends on how you want to make the mental shift towards being independent. If you really want to make a life changing impact and grow an industry that will guarantee you making money work for you not you working for money blogging is the solution.
Forget the mentality of chasing shadow because, blogging is not for the get-rich-quick minds but for the entrepreneurial minds.
Pope John XXIII once said, “It often happens that I wake-up in the night and begin to think about a serious problem and decide I must tell the pope about it. Then I wake-up completely and remember that I am the pope”
