Starting a blog was something I wanted to do for a while now. It was among the list of things I planned to do during 2020. Usually how I plan my year is I set vague goals and then depending on how things are going I then stream line my goals for the year. The idea of a personal website was on the agenda but I didn’t really give it much thought because of school and other ongoing projects. The idea to start a blog came in mid way through the covid-19 lockdown, I had different reasons for starting my blog which I will get into.
One of the major reason why I decided to start my blog is that I noticed I began to watch an excessive amount of movies and TV shows, mainly due to my Universities stress. This is because that is like the only effective way I can calm down for a stressful day, I do play some games though mostly clash of clans and the recent among us but gaming is not as effective for me. One day I realized that I spend too much time on movies and TV series and I knew I had to find a way to make it productive. After some thought I realized the best option for me was to start a blog and write reviews on shows I have watched. Giving my review hopeful will present new angles to various TV shows that people missed and also help them in deciding which shows to watch. I will also attract people to why website where they can see my portfolio and maybe give me a job. My writing skill, which I know could use a lot of work, would also improve .
Another reason I started this blog is to share my programming experiences, give short tutorials and programming guide. I got this idea because, when I’m working with some technologies or programming languages sometimes the documentations are not explanatory or are too vague and I realized starting a blog where I clarified things would be really helpful. Giving my reviews on programming technologies and letting people know why certain programming languages, frameworks or libraries are important or not is something I plan to do. Computer programming in general can be very broad and having guidance is very important; having someone to share their story with you, guide you on your journey and give suggestions on what to learn and how will benefit people. I will also be given tech reviews on popular hardware and software.
Having a blog, website traffic will tend to grow to overtime. I plan to use advertisements to generate some income for myself and connect people to helpful and meaningful products; this also pushed me to start my blog especially in this period. With Google AdSense not being available to Nigerian developers, I also plan to implement a very good ads serving service. That put aside I plan to contact credible marketers and advertise their products on my website.
My goal for this blog is mainly to generate a significant amount of traffic and writing meaningful articles that will benefit people and at the same type benefit me. I also hope I generate a decent amount of revenue from the blog. By God’s grace all these will be achieved let all just watch and wait.
