How many blogs are there in Nigeria?
Nigerians are heavy on the internet (probably the biggest internet users in Africa), with over 30 million Nigerians dominating social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Over a million blogs have been opened in Nigeria since 2012, but not all of them are active today. The number of Nigerian blogs that are currently active run in a few thousands.
How to start and maintain a blog
At first, starting a blog can look totally thrilling. You look at your nicely designed blog and smile from ear and ear, thinking: “Linda Ikeji, you better watch your back, because my new blog is going to knock yours out.”
Then you wake up the next day and realize that except that welcome post you made the day before, there is nothing else on your blog. Then it dawns on you that you have to consistently be putting out content for your blog to attract an audience.
And that is usually the hard work that gets most blogs shut down in their first year. It takes more energy to maintain a blog than start one.
As your blog gains more traction and recognition, you will begin to discover amazing ways to effectively monetize your platform and/or improve your earnings.
