Blogging has taught me that passion is one of the vital keys to thrive in any industry you find yourself. Due to the mindset, people have about “Hanti Linda” leading the way, making millions of naira from blogging.
Many have the mindset that once you open a blog it begins to pay immediately. Along the line, they realize that they are of the wrong mindset they back off immediately or get tired cus the dollar bills ain’t anywhere close. Passion leads the way in business.
consistency: Blogging has taught me consistency in anything you do pays like “Jackpot”. When you are consistent with what you do, even though there are little returns being consistent shows that you are ready.
As a blogger, especially if you are a fresh blogger at some point you may get discouraged as you see just 50-100 views as total traffic for a day.
If you are consistent, your readers take you seriously and if you play your card well by improving it will surely yield results.
You know when Nigerian singer Dr Sid sang “Surulere” I did not understand the message he was passing across until after 2-years of blogging without earning up to 100k.
If you want better days ahead, you need to invest your time. Yes, blogging is a very lucrative business but you need to create Value first.
Your passion helps to build your patience because what you love, you keep doing.
- Create value
Value determines your pay-check. Most new bloggers aim to earn but have never plan to create value.
No one will give you money for a job you cannot deliver. You need to build your traffic, social media audience and followership.
Even Google won’t give you Adsense as soon as you signup to blogger, they need to see your commitment before giving it to you. So create value.
- Procrastination and planning
I have learnt how to plan, not just plan, I plan and execute these things.
I have learnt the need to do it now than later which I am still trying to make it a part of my day to day lifestyle. Reduce your procrastination to 0.000%.
- Create value, improve and continuous development
For you to earn as a blogger, you need to create, no one will give you cash for a service they know you can’t render. Many just want to earn but as a blogger, you need to create value before you earn a dime.
I am one of those who started blogging with little or no knowledge about blogging. If there was anything below novice and amateur just send me there.
lol, but with time I discovered the need to develop and my blog has grown drastically.
So in blogging, never settle at the level where you are, always improve.

If you are a very qualitative blogger, you will know SEO rules changes almost every month.
- Always be thankful
Blogging has taught me the need to appreciate those who support my dreams.
As a blogger I am ever grateful to FOBers, those who share my content, follow me on social media pages.
This shows your readers that they are valuable and you appreciate their sticking to your blog. As a growing blogger, I compared a lot.
It’s good to step up your game and in other to do that you will need to move ahead of your competitors but avoid excessive comparison, it may lead to discouragement. Be yourself and allow your personality to show through your work.
