Personally, I started my blog carrier back in 2017 and it has been very helpful. It is helping me to pay my bills and keep food on my table.
Just think of it, during this covid 19 period when we were asked not to go out, people lose jobs, people that depends on a daily income, meaning they have to go out before getting something back have suffered during that period at the same time bloggers like me were having nothing to worry about because we earn online. We don’t need to go out.
That is the reason why I am urging you to get your blog.
Top 5 reasons you need a blog
let’s go over 5 reasons why you need a blog, maybe that might move you to finally get one.
Extra source of income
For those of us living in Nigeria will agree with me that keep all your eggs in one basket is not applicable in Nigeria. Even if you have a job, there is no job security, anything can happen as we do say.
Having a blog is a backup plan (plan B) just in case the main source of income has some challenges.
You make money at the confort of your house
With a blog, you don’t need to rush early morning trying to meet up with you appointment. You wake up at your own time and work with your laptop or phone.
A blog will help you promote your business
Do you have a business? having a blog will definitely help you to promote your business. Let say, you sell shoes, cloths, bags etc … you can start a fashion blog.
“Who is a fashion blogger? Fashion blogger – is a person who writes articles about fashion and style in his/her blog, publishes photos of outfits, videos of fashion shows. Fashion blogger is a kind of mix of a stylist, journalist and a model.” according to themeisle.com
With your fashion blog, you can start promoting your business.
Now you have a job, you are no more jobless
You know the situation of the country, there is no job. By owning a blog, you are saying good bye to joblessness because a blog can earn you more than most of the salary earner you know.
How many people are earning more than 200.000 naira on a monthly basis that you know? Guess how much Linda for example is making on a daily basis.
Having a blog gives you popularity
Imagine having a huge fan base, tell me you are not already one of them. The next thing that will happen is people/businesses will contact you for partnership. That is where the money will start following in.
