The Art of Blogging: Business Or Hobby?

It’s certain that blogs have come to stay in this generation as against the hope in the old internet era. In the last decade and half, there have being a lot of forms of social interaction launched to the world-wide web for various reasons.

My first interaction with the internet was for searching for information and sending and receiving emails. Then, it became a place to meet and make friends in chat rooms as well as communicate with existing friends.

But in recent years, it’s being a different thing. You don’t only come to the internet for email exchange or information gathering for the sake of research, but you come to the world-wide web to get informed from various means. Most of which started as a means of social interaction and a form of journalism that has now become a business empire.

What has taking over the world today and the Internet world which include e-journalism and social network is the art of blogging. It’s no doubt that blogging is now a lucrative business with a lot of young people turning blogging out information in search of a passive way of making funds.

In Nigeria today, we have famous blogs like Linda Ikeji with a readership arguably all over the world with a good Alexa ranking; not forgetting (a forum) which is the most visited website in Nigeria after Facebook and Google based on Alexia reports.  Other include, Bella Naija, The NET NG, Olorisupergal, techloy, Mobility and of course oTeKbits, just to mention a few.

It’s no hidden fact that owners (at least most) of these blogs now rake in millions of Naira on a monthly basis based on that act or hobby they love doing.

Around the world, it’s no different as bloggers earn from advert placement. The Nigerian bloggers are coming up gradually too. Some now earn a lot of money running into Millions of Naira on a monthly basis. If you are wondering if this is true, see below the list of the top 30 blogs in the world making a log of money online.
