Make Money From Blogging?
A prostitute is anybody (male or female) that doesn’t sit in one place, night or day, rich or poor, contented or broke… Full stop
This post cannot cure madness but it’ll make small sense because a lot of Nigerian bloggers have tried it, failed it and don’t want to share it because they KNOW it’s embarrassing and stupid!…. Just like some online referrer nonsense
I haven’t posted here in awhile, not because i’m working offline jobs but because i took my writing offline (i don’t like being called a blogger… yuck!) and it’s been great. I met a few souls out there and they sent me back online with a good pay and limitless data connection (poor naija boy). That’s not all, THEY KNOW WHO I AM. So, the level of trust in me took a quantum leap and they could always call me back… Another full stop.
Now, everyone wants to “hammer” in 2015, so most of us owners think the way out is to create all kinds of niche in a blog or different blogs (blogger is free na… abi), provided their Adsense is working and their followership in increasing in a blog or different blogs. (lets not embarrass the bosses with secret blogs) … This has gotten so serious even some newbies have entertainment blogs, educational sites, another entertainment blog, a tech blog and a “gist” blog (WhatTheSmuff is a gist blog?)… Chai! Diaris god oo….
Lets reminisce a little. I once opened many blogs and it was awesome because i was doing it with hope (besides, i liked the free blogger templates i used… wetin?)…
First week, No clicks but people visited (we happy). I added a YouTube video and tried this awesome tutorial on Editweaks and searched for means to make people click it…. See, nobody clicked it. I was the one that did (by myself) with a friend’s phone (rough play). I went back to leave comments at the tutorial’s site (maybe i didn’t do it well na)… but it was okay. I abandoned the blog later. Opened another blog…(Prostitution! ah!!)
The other one i opened had attractive (18+) topics (where tontoh dike gets pregnant for Buhari..Chai!) Those kind of posts… People visited ON THE DAYS I SHARED THE POSTS via popular share buttons. It couldn’t go on everyday… Why? It’s because
1. Those secret (18+) blogs do not draw attention to a blogger, unless he’s motivate to make money (with money).
2. It is a waste of time…. your name is not on it and no one might help you share
3. You won’t feel like giving it your 100% time…
4. The niche is not your hobby
5. Adsense ads are all the same and too obvious everywhere… (Unless you can place it at their doorsteps for them to stand on… I salute you!)
6. You’re wasting your data connection
7. This is how i saw it… and days were growing to weeks
8. you’re seeing it that way too now…. your mates are making cash with TWO blogs only
9. If you get one comment in a “nude post” saying: ‘I like your posts…” Go for thanksgiving
10. All these bad visitors just want to see the post or download the song and leave!… Just like that (Chai! Wicked world)
My blogger blogs were Nine…. I write well in all Niche (like an ardent reader & Writerpreneur)… But i can’t do it all everyday. (prostitute! How many blogs do you want to sleep with…ahn ahn?) with a few deleted blogs in another side. +Don Jajo and Ifediri were shocked when i wanted to leave blogger to Mywapblog to start a new settlement…. BlogProstitution!. Those guys talked sense into my head.
A lot of bloggers have ventured into this side, especially when Adsense accept their request (it’s not their fault na)…
Another reason why this doesn’t work (owning all kinds of blog) is because some people are never willing to spend a dime…
