Do you know people search the Internet for one reason only to solve a problem?
Ok let's talk about blogging issues, in the year 2005 we had less blogging tutorial blog here in Nigeria but ogbongeblog was the only famous tutorial blog then but today the story is different but the ranking still remains

That problem people are seeking for!! is not just a problem from a blog with random topics  but a blog with a targeted niche just like blogging tutorials, Android updates and many more.

That’s why niche blogs are popular. For instance, if you want to stay up-to-date on fashion trends, you’ll follow fashion blogs because you trust that they’ll continuously solve your problem.

The successful part of a niche blog is that it narrows your target audience, but it also keeps them coming back for more solutions.

How exactly do you “find your niche?” Check out these tips below.

Select Something You Know about and Addicted to.


As you can see the first thing you need to put in mind before starting a blog is that you need to write about what you know best like phone repair, hair dressing, photography and many more.

When you blog about what you’re passionate about, several things happen

  • You need to put more time and effort into your blog to make it gain more audience and also increase in page tank

  • Let your passion for blogging never cease. You need to make your blog in such a way that it can Stan without daily updates.

  • It shows through in your writing, and your readers can feel that. This, in turn, will lead to a larger following.

You don't just rush into educational blogging just because of the massive traffic in it for the benefit of your adsense earnings which is bad.
You need to think about what if I am to be interviewed what are your going sy about your copy and pasting which is wrong..

Be Passionate
Having the passion is a factor that keeps you moving even when you fail in blogging sphere, below are some little questions i will like to ask you.

  • What are your hobbies?
Hobbies is what you love doing without any obstruction and in your hobbies you are always focus and passionate, examples of hobbies are: Reading, Writing, Traveling, Going on a Research and many more.
So you see with you perfect hobbie you can stand or create a powerful niche blog.

  • How do you spend your free time?
Spending your free time in a quiet arena is the best for any writer, this will enable free and easy creation of your blog post.

  • What types of classes did you enjoy in high school or college?
If you are good in agriculture class or physics you can create a blog on either one of them and this will help many young students who will to love to learn

  • What do you enjoy reading and learning about?

Find a Hole in the Market

The truth is that no matter what topic you choose to write about, there is already a blog or million out there in that niche. However, not everyone has explored every nick and cranny of every niche. That’s where the profitability can come in.

You can narrow your niche in the same way by adjusting your target audience to those who rarely get attention, such as novice versus advanced individuals in your industry. Another option is to focus on a certain geographical area.

Remember, however, that there must be a need in that end of the market.

Keep in mind that you don’t have to stick with your first blog and its niche if you’re feeling burnt out. However, taking the time to explore which niche you want to start in can save you a lot of time and money in the future instead of jumping from niche to niche.

The biggest thing that will help you choose the right niche is to really think about it instead of jumping in head-first with no idea.

Still not sure? Tell us where you’re getting stuck in your decision-making.

Searching Your Niche

What if you have many passions and no focus? What if you’re not sure how to find your niche? In Finding Your Niche Online and Succeeding In It Amandalyn advises making a list:

  • If you have a hard time finding your niche, then ask yourself a few questions and write down all of your answers to make a list.
  • What are your favorite topics to talk about?
  • When you were young, what was fun for you?

Influencing Your Niche


First you have a niche but your own style or pattern is different and also your content should be readable for viewers.

The niche you want to start should be a niche that is less competitive, you need to look different from others and also your content has to be unique with new discovery in the blogging sphere.

you can join forums like Nairaland, digitalpoint, and also you can join blog comments interaction like zethablog, zealmatblog, shoutoutloud, shelaf and many more.

Now I believe, you will start to position yourself to make some money from your passion. As I wrote in my article Advice for Making Money with Your Blog Using Adblabla, if you have a product (via your blog) or are representing a business niche, it is easier to sell that product or specific niche to advertisers. Advertisers know who they want to reach and if your product or business is complementary, then they see the value of advertising with you more readily than they would if you were just a blogger without focus.

Bitcoin Is the Future of the World of Money



Bitcoin Is the Future of the World of Money

Most Nigerians became aware of Bitcoin as recently as last year during the MMM Ponzi period. Before then bitcoin was on the fringe of consciousness in Nigeria. The Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency that has changed the way we conduct online transactions. It is the fastest and freest way of transferring money to any place in the world. You may google the meaning of cryptocurrency because that is a topic for another day.
It is easy to shrug off an idea as novel as Bitcoin. But it is not easy to find an alternate to something as robust as Bitcoin. The brainchild of Satoshi Nakamoto has now become the World’s most sought after cryptocurrency. So many people on the News and TV keep bashing this currency. However, there are some real reasons for which Bitcoin is here to stay and prosper. The reasons are as follows:

No Central Control
Central Banks in almost all countries of the world regularize the flow of money. The Central bank of any country theoretically controls every single dollar or naira coming in and out of its country. You cannot escape the control of central bank policies which are often not friendly for businesses. Bitcoin gives every business a chance to transact with anyone anywhere in the world. You do not need to pass through a long set of banking rules. Decentralization of control also makes the currency a lot more secure.

Transactions beyond Borders
Bitcoin does not discriminate against anyone due to their background. Bitcoin will make sure that you get the money through to anywhere you want. Sometimes, there are laws which prevent you from buying something from a particular country. These kinds of issues come up all the time. Imagine how Bitcoin facilitates lives of rich people with loads of money.

Foolproof Cyber Security Measures
The blockchain technology which is the foundation of bitcoin cannot be hacked because it is decentralized unlike a website that is hosted in a server.

No Inflation No Heartbreaks
No matter which currency you try to store, it has that inflation impact on it. Inflation is a result of many micro and macroeconomic factors affecting a country and its currency by causing it to loose value gradually. There is a maximum of 21 million bitcoins that will ever be created and no more. As demand increases the value of bitcoin will keep growing since more will not be created unlike the naira that is printed regularly. So bitcoin is a deflationary currency that does not react to inflation. In fact it gains value as inflation rises. It is predicted that bitcoin will grow up to $100,000 per one bitcoin. Between July 2016 till August 2017 bitcoin grew from $600 to $4500 per bitcoin.

A Truly Global Currency
Bitcoin is a truly global currency which does not consider where you live, who you are, and what you do. It is available to everyone who has a potential use for it. The peer-to-peer method ensures that you directly get the money into your account. You do not have to report to any third party or financial institution. You are your own bank

How to Get Bitcoin
The best way to learn about bitcoin is to jump in and get a few in your "pocket" to get a feel for how they work.
Despite the hype about how difficult and dangerous it can be getting bitcoins is a lot easier and safer than you might think. In a lot of ways, it is definitely easier than opening an account at a traditional bank. And, given what has been happening in the banking system, it is probably safer too.
In Nigeria you can buy Bitcoin from www.epay.com.ng which is line of the best exchanges in Nigeria. Highly professional, they will guide you on how to get your bitcoin wallet from www.blockchain.com and many other things you will need to learn.
There are a few things to learn: getting and using a software wallet, learning how to send and receive money, learning how to buy bitcoin from a person or an exchange. You can contact epay.com.ng
