What Motivated This Post?
I was counselling for few new bloggers last week (on a local radio), and friend called in to ask how much I’d earned from my Google AdSense so far, and I decided to be very open to her. Just that moment, she was rekindled and felt like joining blogging immediately (as she expressed). But this doesn’t make any difference; when you look at the other side if the story, it might also seem very daunting as a job.
One once asked me if I can vouch for blogging as a lifetime profession. These, and more are similar questions and challenges I battle with on my private massages, and that’s why I’ve chosen to share it here.

Important Facts you were not told about Blogging
- The name and look of the blog does not play much roles
Sometimes, dummies focus much energy and interest on the outlook of the blog, which has nothing to do with ease of navigation and the validity of their blog contents. Instead of investing more on how the blog looks, concentrate on the solution your blogging career is meant to solve.
In short, the richest blogs I pay much attention to, has no good outlook design or neither do they have the best names in the world. Topnotch bloggers have the most poorly arranged blogs. But there is something very cogent you must learn about blogging. Any blog post you intend to write must have the readers in mind. For instance, jobreaders.com is a site meant for graduates, undergraduates and job-seeker looking for better jobs, but their needs are met in o more organized format, irrespective of the look of the site.
In any state of perception you are right now, please note that the name and look of the blog does not play much roles. The content does.
- Blog contents should be collective
A good blog should be a place where readers gather collective information to meet their needs. It’s simply a source of information, not a play store. So if you want to blog, ensure you must learn how to keep your related content organized in a batches, for easy navigation and collection.
Some started blogging with the intentions of writing and sharing anything that comes into their minds. But the truth is that you cannot do it all alone. Many have tried and failed in their quest to set up and run a multi-categorized blog. Blogs with many categories might help in pulling traffic from multiple sources, but the readers’ satisfaction might be very tedious to meet with.
Instead chose a particular niche of interest and work on your mastery.
- There is no single way or earning from your blog
Thousands of bloggers made this mistake in their early blogging careers. Like I’ve shared, people believe that Google AdSense is my only source of income as a blogger, and not aware that AdSense is just one among my ways of paying my bills as a blogger here in Nigeria.

- Bloggers Are Influencers
But not all influencers are bloggers.
If you cannot influence your readers, social followers, friends and your brand advocates to take action, maybe you’ve not gotten the idea of blogging.
Another reason that might have prevented you from making huge impact and wealth as bloggers is your creativity. You’ve got to be creative enough to know what your audience wants at a time.
- Blogging Needs Extra cash
You aren’t working and doesn’t probably have a means of income and wants your blog to be widely discovered and followed.
Charlie, there must be something wrong in your blogging orientation and must be corrected at once. But if you’ve got less competitors, the task maybe simplified with your knowledge of SEOs.
Without that, such blogs will find it very difficult to see the least page ranking by any search engine in the world.
Good blogs are not made in days. It takes time to come up with a defined market, new set of kind followers and advocates that will keep recommending your content for other.
Some of your blog posts need paid boosting. You can also utilize others’ blogs to make your more known to others and nothing stops you from watching your daily analytics reports to keep track of your growth.
- Blogging does not Have a pattern
You are not expected to do it the same way with me. Blogging is all about expressing yourselves. Study your market very closely to figure out your real audience. Ensure your contents has the readers in mind.
- It Takes Some time To Start Earning
Just like an entrepreneur who sets up a kiosk. He buys some finished goods from either manufacturers or wholesalers. After the shop is fully set, the next step would be to convince his new customers. When his popularity soars, then he will start earning from the turnout.
Same with blogging. When you start blogging, the next step would be to convince readers to visit your blog. There are many approaches to building your blog audience, subscribers, and buyers. But all depends on the nature of your content and the niches’ competition.
