Tech, Business And Blogging Tips

Congratulation! Nobleloaded is One

Cant believe one year had passed by, One Year into blogging. Congratulations! NobleLoaded is One! It seems as if it was yesterday i started.

And I’ll love to use this medium to tell you my little journey so far into blogging.

How & Why I Started Blogging

Before coming into blogging, i had tried some platforms because i always wanted to own a website of my own(my kid dreams), some of them are Peperonity and Wapka. I left peperonity because of poor interface and Lack of developing tools, came into wapka 2013 and stayed for 2 years. I left wapka due to the fact i wanted to upgrade, i needed a professional website that can stand with other web online: and Wapka cant achieve that for me so i left.
I started Nobleloaded 15 of August 2015 which was the day i published my first post ever on Blogspot, before then i had been reading guides about blogging online, in order to succeed when i come in.
It was started as a general niche blog and that was where the name NobleLoaded came in, but after going through researches, i had to stop and focus on a particular niche TECH, which is actually what i have passion for(not the gossip type lol) but i still didn’t change the name because it was to be a brand that will stand out: Loaded with Contents. Many critized me about blogging on a particular niche, but i had to keep my focus because i had a goal.

It is not an easy journey because i have problems/challenges

Challenges I Face As a Blogger

* Lack of constant power supply

* Poor/expensive Internet services

* Time: as a student it is very difficult to manage school time with blogging.

But am happy all of this never weighed me down in my blogging journey.

Am not a gossip type like i said earlier, so let me not write too much lol. Below are stats of Nobleloaded so far, although not really better. Please see it as a starting point for me, because am still growing…

Monetization

I have tried almost all the monetizing method i know on my blog. From ad networks to affiliate marketing. I have not earned so much from these mediums(maybe none). I’ve earned a few thousands of naira, from writing articles for other blogs, mostly, as a ghost Blogger.

Despite that, i have not given up because that was not what brought me into blogging(although making money is involved).

Achievement
