You definitely need discernible reasons why you should start blogging, especially if you reside in Africa.
Blogging has dramatically become a reputable business since the advent of the internet and will continue to be lucrative as far as the internet exists.
Economy, in Africa, is obviously not palatable, and it’s more than necessary to clinch to a strong and controllable business in order to stand out in bill clearing. Internet is everywhere – not even the state of the economy has affected the internet in Africa.
Are Africans making it from blogging?
This question has been patronizing my mailbox for the past few months, so I deemed it fit to throw in the best and proven answer.
YES! There are lots of Africans that make millions doing blogging. The likes of Makinde Azeez (founder of Naijaloaded), Lindaikeji (founder of Lindaikejisblog), Jide Ogunsanya (founder of Ogbongeblog), and the list continues to tens, if not hundreds.
But the market is full already, so what?
The fact that there are so many people blogging does not have anything to hold you back. You too can start one. You should even start now!
The 8 Awesome Reasons Why You Should Start Blogging…
1. Deep Knowledge
“The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn”__Alvin Toffler
Blogging is awesome if you would like to move your knowledge with the best trend. You blog because of your readers, and will want to stay atop of them; as a result, you will make a lot of research before publishing any post.
Regardless of your current knowledge, you still need to keep learning. As the saying of Toffler, we are in the 21st century and we need to learn, unlearn, and relearn.
Blogging is one of the best answers to doing this if you need any reason to keep learning.
2. Sense of Power
Knowing that you have the ability to reach multiple Africans, Nigerians (if you are in Nigeria and targeting Nigerians), and probably change their mindset, at any time, will dramatically give you a sense of power.
You reserve the right to post anything the moment your blog is registered. Similar to radio and TV presenters, people will be forced to plead you to post and not to post some content on your blog. Then, your feeling will position you like a king on the throne.
3. Passive Income
Can you make money, blogging? Yes, you can. And you will (if you want to).
One of the core reasons you need to launch your blog is to open a door to a reasonable revenue.
There are so many ways to make money from blogging. All big companies like MTN, Glo, 9mobile, Dstv, are ready to partner with you and spend on your publications if it’s worth it.
As opposed to some businesses that only pay you when you operate, blogging is standard and has the pure ability to earn you money, even while you sleep.

6. Fast Selling
Every business needs online reviews in order to prove its quality. To create reviews for any product you need to blog. Blogging is drastically fast at promoting both physical and digital products.

Blogging helps you to rank your business on search engines, and thus gains you thorough online recognition. It also proves your knowledge in the field which best paints your business with a fine reputation.
Convenience is the key to the rapid growth of any business. Unlike other businesses, blogging has no requirement for any office before generating you thousands in revenue – it can be started and run from your room.
Also, you don’t need much staff to own a successful blog. You can even decide not to have anyone on your payroll, and just hire based on your need.
