Here I come again. I’m here once more to throw light one particular question which has being racing through my mind for the past week or so.
And its something like this, what is the difference between a problogger and we newbie bloggers? Yes, I want your take on this or are you more or less going to behave like this presidential candidate of Ghana.
This 80-year-old man wanted to be president of Ghana and during a radio interview went something like this, ‘Mr. Host, this is an interesting and lovely question. I admire you for asking such an intelligent question. Can you please repeat the question again?’ Hahahaa!
May you rest in peace Mr. Dan Lartey! So just as Dan Lartey, I guess many of us here want the question repeated once more. And it goes like this, what is the difference between a problogger and we newbie bloggers?
What do these people in common before we move forward? Yes, this is now a class so please pay full attention. Hahahaha! there is one distinct character which cuts across the board with these two different bloggers. I mean the newbie and the pro, they all the name blogger associated with their names.Hahaha And they all came into blogging with one aim. Either to make money(90%) or for fame(7%) or others(3%).
If anyone with a blog is known as a blogger, then how come some are known as pros and others known as newbies? I think this is a question I’ve asked more than necessary. Please pardon me for asking soo many questions but this is what the post is all about. It’s a class and not just here to deliver any boring lecture which will likely make you doze off in my class. Hahaha!
Let me be serious here. There is one interesting here. We are on the main issue on board. Good! Give me one problogger you know and it will be difficult because there are just numerous of them.
What distinguishes between a Problogger and a newbie blogger?
Probloggers tend to have high self-esteem compared to newbie bloggers. If there is one thing which really determines success and it will be self-esteem. And this something most bloggers sorry, newbie bloggers lack. I for instance never thought I was good enough as a blogger.
I quite remember whiles using blogger.com, I will always send any poem I write to one great blogger based somewhere in the US. He never replied but the day he did, I was in dilemma. I nearly quit blogging but this was a message which at the end wasn’t that bad after all.
‘Your writing is good but your blog sucks’-was the reply. In a way, he was right because this was a blogspot blog with more than 10 ads on the homepage alone and those ads were just flashy.
But that nice advice nearly took me offline as blogger simply because I was having low esteem. So having low esteem is a recipe to remain as a newbie blogger for the rest of your blogging career. Hahaha!

Another interesting about newbie bloggers is that they lack what probloggers have and that is PATIENCE! Instant result is what they sought after. High pagerank, lower alexa, getting instant Adsense account and even when they get it, they want $100 per click. hahaha!
Haven’t we-newbie bloggers heard of this, the patient dog gets the fattest bone with meat? Hahaha! But it is something we don’t have. No one ever gets to the top by rushing!
As I said earlier, this is a class and don’t want be seen as selfish by doing all the talking here. It is now your turn to tell the world what you make of this by commenting below.
