Things A Nigerian Blogger Needs to Have
Despite all the ways available online for income generation most people in Nigeria prefer blogging because it offers a steady and more reliable income through advert agents and other means but as I mentioned earlier in our previous post that blogging requires some equipment and this equipment may vary from country to another depending on the level of development in that country.
Top 8 Things A Nigerian Blogger Needs to Have To Become Successful
A blogger in Nigeria may require the following:
A LAPTOP AND DESKTOP
Hence, for a laptop with a very high range of RAM (RANDOM ACCESS MEMORY), and large hard disk space (about 500GB and above), the laptop’s processors must be checked by a professional before purchasing it.
AN EXTERNAL LAPTOP BATTERY
If you are living in Nigeria then you need an external battery also known as an inverter for storing electric currents in the form of DC to last for about six hours or more.
The reason is that most periods that Nigerian cities have steady light is between three to six hours interval before another electric supply would come it could take up to four or more hours, so you need an inverter to sustain the laptop for the period of time the electric supply is not available.
AN ELECTRIC GENERATOR
Generators may be costly in Nigeria but one could get affordable types the cost should be about N15000 to N120, 000 ranging from the smallest as well as the cheapest to the largest and costly types respectively.
Sometimes the power supply of the area may be down due to faults in the distribution lines and other causes and this could make it impossible for the website to be updated after the inverter has finished discharging its stored electric currents so the generator will be needed to charge the inverter as well update the website.
The modem is a device for browsing through the computer, it has a USB port for connectivity with the computer and at its back.
It has a subscriber’s identification modules card (SIMCARD) port for telecommunications browsing networks this enables the computer to access the internet through the browsing network available in the SIMCARD.
Hence, a blogger needs a modem for the computer to access the website.
A HOTSPOT DEVICE OR PHONE
The modern method computers use in accessing the internet is through hotspots, this hotspot connects to the computer through a means called WI-FI such that no port or cord is needed to connect the browsing network of the hotspot to the computer.
Every blogger needs this device in the case of any fault coming from the modem or if the modem is not available.
ACCESS TO LIBRARY AND PROFESSIONAL WEBSITES
Every blogger needs information in order to stay on top and share with others and major places to source good content is in the library and by visiting professionals either through website contacts or direct contact or visiting of the professional.
This will help you to be equipped in terms of creating your content with the information obtained, so a serious blogger should make a provision for content creation that is reliable or useful to the followers and visitors.
TIME AND COMMITMENT
Therefore a blogger needs to spend at least six hours per day creating and posting articles online for such successful easily. At least two publications per day is a go.
Blogs require money to run, first is the money you use to host the domain name of the blogs money to design or buy professional templates online, the money for internet subscriptions which helps to gain access online, etc.
