How to Become a Successful Blogger in Nigeria.


When it comes to being a blogger in Nigeria, what really matters is how effective you are at connecting with your audience. A blogger without an audience is like a vehicle with no fuel. Still, becoming a successful blogger in Nigeria takes some effort, and you can start with the following tips.


The truth is that this question can only be answered in a general sense. There is no specific formula to follow to become an effective blogger in Nigeria. Think about this, a blogger who simply writes about day-to-day events can be a successful blogger. In short, there is no telling what readers are going to respond to, making this world open to interpretation.

There are still some things to consider to increase your chances of being noticed so that you can find your loyal clan of people. One thing you should keep in mind is that being first matters. This usually applies to Nigerian bloggers who want to follow news or gossip. Many big news outlets check their sources to make sure that they are true. This is good, but the blogging world is very competitive. Most newbie bloggers do not have the time or money to do a thorough check on all stories. You cannot afford to wait, so it is best to do a few checks and post the story. You can retract it later if you need to.

Having a strong opinion might help you stand out from the rest. This applies to bloggers who are writing from a personal perspective, and it can be effective. There may be other writers talking about your particular topic, but they may not share you specific views, which will give you a chance to stand out. Be completely unapologetic because readers respond to honesty.

Learning more about Nigeria and your specific region could make a difference. Localizing your news and stories can help you zoom in on a niche that is not so competitive. Larger stories are being covered by many bloggers, making yours a little harder to find. You should be able to retain a specific audience faster by sticking to small stories. Do not be afraid to publish first-hand accounts from neighbors or people you know. These types of editorials are unique and may help you get more readers.

Social media is perhaps one of the most important tools a blogger can use to his or her advantage. For example, Twitter allows you to share your posts aggressively, and the more followers you have, the better. Now, those who do not have many followers should work on getting more followers. It does not matter if they interact with you much because readers just want to see that you are active on social media.

Be sure to focus on a need that your blog can fulfill. Some blogs concentrate on how to's or things like that. These blogs might deal with tips on fixing a vehicle or how to look as beautiful as you can. You may be surprised to know that these blogs do very well at times, especially if you concentrate on what Nigerians care about. You can conduct a survey to find out what Nigerians need, and dedicate an entire section of your blog to fulfill this need.

Don't forget about guest blogging. Readers who visit your site want to hear what you have to say about a subject, but they also want to see a little contrast from time to time. This is one reason why inviting a guest blogger to your site is a good idea. You can allow people to give their perspective regarding some of your controversial pieces. It should not be surprising to hear that a little drama can bring attention to your site. You should be able to attract new readers if you display varying views on a particular subject.

You should also consider talking about religion. It is no secret that Nigeria has a strong religious base. Many of these people are online and looking for information to digest. You want to talk about local leaders or local religious events that readers might be interested in. Try to stir up a little gossip, or find some news about a religious leader. People want to hear good news regarding their religion, but they might also be interesting in an article that focuses on a particular scandal.

Photographs are an important factor for any blogger. Most readers do not just want to read a page of text. Many readers prefer large photos over small ones. You can use commercial use photographs from Google Images, or you can take some yourself to be unique. Be sure to tag your photographs with the right terms such as spotted or celebrity. Try to read other's content as much as possible, especially those who have created a successful blog. This can teach you about proper formatting like the fact that readers do not like seeing large chunks of text but rather small paragraphs. Learning from your fellow blogger is something that man newby bloggers do, so do not worry about visiting pages to get a few tips.

These are just a few things you can consider when you are starting up your Nigerian-based blog. Be sure to write quality content but in quick successions so that you can gain more interested readers. They will able to see what your site has to offer. Remember to leave the submission box open to readers as they might have additional information for you to write about or might tell about other things Nigerians are interested in. As you can see, creating a successful blog in Nigeria is possible, but it does require a little work on your part.
