Popular Bloggers & The Top 10 Blogs In Nigeria.
Blogging in Nigeria has become a full-time job for those who see the in-depth benefit and exposure it would offer them.
Blogs in Nigeria as at 2006 can’t be compared to the number of blogs launched in 2017. Bloggers in Nigeria have found out the best way to augment their salary to be able to survive in the era of the recession in Nigeria as a part-time worker.
When they saw the benefit it offers, this brought about blogging as a profession.
Before then, blogging had been in existence for more than a decade, until the likes of Linda Ikeji, the richest blogger in Africa started to share her success story as a Nigerian blogger to fellow Nigerians.
When blogs initially evolved and came out as a new rage, captivating the attention of people from around the world, writers, journalists and every media practitioner aspire to make their voices heard through this dynamic, interactive and engaging channel.
Tech experts in Nigeria have come to realize the great impact of blogging for their brands, concluding that; companies who run and manage a blog generates 126% more revenue and gain new prospects that rivals who don’t.
Only recently did Nigerians start to take it seriously. Presently, the rate at which Nigerians are creating blogs is increasing simultaneously every single day.
This is due to the widespread of rumored stories that an individual who starts a blog today can make $100, make money in less than five days or make money blogging per week. HUH!
I bet you $40, that’s not possible. You can’t make $100 (dollar) per week or the first day you launch your blog. I didn’t say it’s not so possible, but it shouldn’t be.
The strong belief that Blogging is a goldmine didn’t just strike Nigerians by chance. Excellent success achieved by fellow Nigerian Bloggers brought about the relief.
Today, the admin of AdmissionListNG – Ayoola Olugbenga Daniel, will be sharing with you the 10 most influential bloggers in Nigeria as at 2017.
The list I will be sharing does not necessarily mean they’re the richest online entrepreneurs in Nigeria or richest media practitioners in the country. But they have made an impact in the BLOGOSPHERE – with their blogs and have been able to support and engage newbie who follows their path and also improve the lives of Nigerians at home and abroad.
Don’t be flabbergasted at the person who had always topped the list since 2006.

Lindaikeji.blogspot.com was the name of the blog Linda Ikeji started with as at 2006. Now she has a custom domain name which is www.lindaikejisblog.com.
Linda publishes news about celebrities to be precise. She is widely known for celebrity gossips and political news that you would always come across on thousands of other blogs. Her blogging feat is unprecedented and her blog has been a regular ‘online home’ for most Nigerians.
One thing I don’t like about Linda Ikeji’s blog is her design and how slow the blog loads. She’s still working on that and very soon, she will migrate to WordPress I guess.
