Kabenlah, are you sure you’re going to provide us with 3,000 reasons. Hahaha! Can you make it 10,00o from your end as well? Because I am going to deliver my part. Hope you do same as well. HAHAHA!
What on this earth should you consider being a blogger in this world? And that is the question I intend answering as well. Talking of questions has brought in memories of what happened to my little friend, Little Johnny whiles in school.
It was an English class to be exact!
Teacher: What is a Verb?
Little Johnny: A Verb is a valve found in bicycle tyre.
Teacher: What are you saying?
Little Johnny: It is a complete sentence sir.
Teacher: Are you mad?
Little Johnny: It is a question sir.
Teacher: Don’t be stupid!
Little Johnny: It is an advice sir.
Teacher: Stop that nonsense.
Little Johnny: It is a command sir.
Teacher: You’re an idiot.
Little Johnny: It is an insult sir.
Teacher: Get out of my class.
Little Johnny: It is an order sir.
Teacher: Oh! Goodness, What a boy!
Little Johhny: It is an exclamation sir.
Teacher: May God have mercy on you.
Little Johnny: It is a prayer sir.
Teacher: You need to see a doctor.
Little Johnny: It is a suggestion sir.
Teacher: I rest my case.
Little Johnny: It is your choice sir
Hahaha! it is of course a matter of choice and obviously me wanting to write 3,000 reasons why you should consider being a blogger is my choice as well.
So let set the ball rolling:
Reason number 1: It’s really easy
Blogging takes no experience and very minimal set up time. You can start a WordPress blog on your own host extremely cheap and get on the way within 20 minutes. That is one of the major reasons so many people are trying it – minimal barriers to entry and still you have a chance to succeed.
This is a massive advantage if you are thinking about using blogging as a means to make money. Most other businesses require substantial capital to get underway – buying stock, renting a property, etc. but with blogging you’ll need maybe $60 and you’re set.
Reason number 2: You’ll make new friends
I know this might seem a little strange to some people but making new friends when you are an adult is really quite hard. Generally most of us stay friends with high school or college mates but outside of work it can be tricky to meet new people.
Well, since I’ve been blogging I’ve met a bunch of other blog owners who I would now call my friends. If anything ever went wrong I reckon I could probably call them up and ask for help. But, best of all, it’s just nice knowing that there are people out there that help you and whom you can help as well.
Imagine receiving a direct call from a fellow blogger from different countries all together asking how you are doing. Nosa Ero Nosa and Ali of Health Save Blog have all called me directly. It was such an amazing moment for me.
My friends on Facebook are simply amazing as well. And it all boils to blogging!
Reason number 3: You can make money
Yep, there we go. The money thing. It’s hard work but it can be done. I make a nice little income from this blog. But there have been massive success stories of guys selling blogs for millions or even making hundreds of thousands every year on an ongoing basis.
In a world where financial matters are increasingly uncertain it can be a nice idea to find something extra to supplement your income in case something goes wrong. With a long term and professional approach this is definitely possible.
If blogger A has being able to earn that much from his blog, what makes you different when you try as well.
I got you there. I just elaborated on 3,000 reasons why you should consider being a blogger. On a more serious note, if each point of mine is worth a thousand, how many point do I have there?
Obviously it’s a three thousand worth of point. Can you please make it 10,000?
