A blogger is someone who does blogging. Yes, it is very simple to understand this one because I have already explained what blogging is all about above, you should read it one more time if you have not clearly understood the concept. Have you read it again? Okay, yes… I believe you understand it better now, bravo!

For one to be a blogger, you do not need to be a programmer, developer or an IT professional. This is because you can easily hire a developer or an IT professional to handle all technical aspects of your blog including domain registration, hosting, setup, design and search engine optimization. You only need writing, proofreading and text editing skills, being a tech expert is an added advantage though.

The professional you hire will guide you through the process of creating contents on your blog, optimizing your content for search engine discovery, etc. after he has done the creation, design and SEO aspects.

Also, to become a blogger, It  does not matter your field or qualifications, you can be a blogger no matter who you are, or how old you are. Whether you are 15years old or 100years old, you can start blogging at anytime provided you can use a computer and a smartphone.

Now, one very important thing in blogging is to start right with the right information, that is the essence of this guide, how to start successful blog 1 [The Truth About Blogging]. To guide you through the right and relevant information you need to succeed in blogging.

You have heard that blogging has made a lot of people billionaires and millionaires, this is absolutely correct, this is true, but it happens this way if you start right with the right information.

Some other people have also tried blogging, and they had to quit along the line due to one reason or the other. The art of blogging is not just owning an unplanned and aimless blog, and posting anything you see on it without aim…. You might give up because you do not have proper guidance, you just started on your own without knowing how it works. Hence, you should count yourself so lucky to have come across this article.

Remember we have been on definition of terms, there are lots of other terms to be defined, but don’t worry, we shall continue with the definition of terms in the next series of this guide. I shall define terms that relate to any topic I’m writing on.

At this juncture, I will dive to the benefits or advantages of blogging and becoming a blogger. If there are disadvantages, I will state them too. – –

Now, first things first… Let’s talk about the advantages of blogging and becoming a blogger.

Advantages of blogging:

There are lots of advantages in being a blogger, let me mention some of them below.

1. Social recognition – yes you will be socially recognized in the society, you will be respected by a lot of people, including people you don’t even know, you are just like a celebrity, provided you share relevant and useful information.

2. Income – Yes. Blogging is a source of income, remember I had said it’s a business earlier.

3. Fame – You will certainly become famous once your blog is popular.

4. Respect – Yes! As a blogger, you are just like a mentor and a teacher, you will be certainly respected.

5. Recognition by high class personnel – You could dine with Kings just because you are a blogger. You could meet with different kinds of people, you could enter different places, summits, etc. You are a celebrity after all.

6. Job opportunity -Blogging provides job opportunities for you and other people too. This is because there will come a time you will employ people to write and publish articles on your blog, you are a boss after all.

7. Experience – Blogging gives you a lot of experience on article writing and information. This will help you build your vocabularies, spellings and sentence construction, making you a better writer. It could also be added to your Resume (CV) as a job experience.

There are other benefits or advantages too, but let me hold it here for now, you could think out others and add them to the list. – –

Now, let us look at the possible disadvantages of blogging.

Disadvantages of blogging:

1. Eye Strain or Eye stress – that’s right, you heard me right. Your eyes will be stressed because you are always looking at the computer screen or your smartphones’ screen. This is more dangerous especially to those with eye defects… But trust me, there is a solution, you could use lenses (eye glasses) to protect your eyes each time you are working with your computer or smartphone.

2. Now, the next disadvantage of blogging I can think of is that it will keep you somehow glued to your computer and smartphones, you have to attend to your visitors each time they need you, you have to always stay on your PC or smartphones to create and publish articles, and this will steal a lot of your time. But it is a business you are doing anyways, this should not be a problem, besides, it is to your own advantage. Hence, I don’t see this one as a disadvantage, I am a positive minded person after all, so I will leave you to decide what to call it…. Winks.
