In the last few weeks, I’ve decided to spend time to REALLY read people’s blog posts and also put up posts that I think are worth reading. When I started this blogging thing, I just posted stories because I felt like it and because I had been writing for a good number of years without an audience.
Now, blogging is not a common practice in Nigeria. Writing and reading is generally not something most Nigerians understand. I noticed that up to 70%+ of the page views I get comes from the United States and most of the Nigerians that visit my blog are not resident in Nigeria. Well, I really won’t try to explain why this is but if you have an explanation, please do comment, I need your comments too.
All I want to say with this post is that there is an almost general consensus among bloggers that blogging makes you happy.
Isn’t there need to find a little happiness with someone you don’t know physically? I may be the only one who has noticed that “bloggers don’t argue in the comments section” like we often experience on facebook. That means nobody comments with the aim of imposing their views on another person. Writing and creativity are naturally ways through which you give your intellect an expression and it lightens your mind but a wave of feedback from people you haven’t met has its way of warming your heart. It may not necessarily have a monetary gain. Many of my peers assume I gain something monetarily but sometimes and many times writing and sharing my thoughts on this blog just makes me happy and reading other people’s writings makes me happier but if you want to read my writings and put some money in my pocket too just click here, I’ll appreciate it. I’ve even gotten hooked onto some people’s blogs recently and I’ll share 7 blogs I consider worth reading for the inspiration, wit and fun they share. I’m getting addicted to them.
