My Journey on Blogging

11 38

Hello friends,

So I am still pretty much what you call an amateur to the world of blogging. My Blogging experience didn't start here on read.cash as many other users have been mention so far on this platform.

I started out by writing articles on nnu.ng. Initially the platform was something like read.cash but it was mostly a Nigerian based platform. It was different from read.cash because you had to pay to join the platform. The payment was also fixed like you get N200 (Naira) for each article that gets approved by the admins of the platform. The payout back then was once per month and the minimum withdrawal was N10,000(Naira). They also had an affiliate program which also boost your earning but it wasn't really easy to get people to pay to write articles, instead they would prefare to get their own blogs and write their own articles while having full ownership of their contents. That's a screenshot of the website below.

So after about three months of writing for nnu.ng. I was introduced to a new platform called naijahow.com which was also a Nigerian based platform. The fee to join the platform back then was about N1200(Naira) which wasn't too high, so I decided to let go off nnu.ng and join naijahow.com.

On my first month of joining naijahow.com I really enjoyed the workflow of the platform because it was much easier to write your articles and edit them as you best see fit and writers had a lot of tools at their disposal. Then another good factor of the platform was the fact that they paid every Sunday of the week and the minimum withdrawal was just N2000(Naira) as a pose to that of nnu.ng.

So after about 3 months writing on the platform, I began to gradually notice how things where falling out of place. The more we grew in numbers the more difficult it was to manage the platform because a lot of unruly activities started taking place like spamming, plagiarism, team work by users just for the purpose of earning and all that. So it didn't take long before the platform just stopped working probably due to insufficient funds. I just went online on a Sunday morning to see if i could withdraw my funds for that week but unfortunately the website was down and stayed down up till date. That's how I lost some of my money that was still on the platform. You can see the website domain is still up for sale below.

So after that I became really tired of online platforms that pay you for writing articles and decided not to write for such platforms anymore. I became a ghostwriter, it seemed to pay more back then because a lot of people wanted contents written for them but they don't want to credit someone else for it, they wanted it to seem like they wrote it and are willing to pay for it. So I wrote for them without caring about how they make use of that content but as time began to pass that niche gradually died off and people where more interested in social media marketers to promote and write their contents for them.

So I then thought it would be a great Idea to have my own blog too and own my own contents rather than writing for others and earning a reward that doesn't have much value to it in the end.

I started making research on how to start up my own blog and all, and the price was not all that friendly to begin with. It was much more than I could afford as a student in Nigeria who had to work hard to make daily living and provide for yourself. The role of your parents is to pay your school fee and some rather large bills the others are left for you to figure out. So spending so much on a blog that I had no idea if it would succeed or not in the next year was not really an option. So I started researching on how to build my own blog and that's when I came in contact with programming.

After a while I began to develop an affinity for programming. The whole idea behind it was so compelling that I felt I had seen something I loved as much as sharing my opinions and idea through writing.

Writing is about adding value to people's life through your contents with the hope that when they read your content they get inspired or motivated to take a bold step that might change their lives for the better. Then again programming isn't really much so different from that, in programming you solve problems, not just problems but real life problems of humans. Your innovation as a programmer could also help change lives and open peoples mind to greater possibilities so they can see life from a different dimension.

So after discovering the possibilities of programming I began to gradually drift away from the world of blogging or writing for others in general but that gate was reopened when I came in contact with read.cash. Initially it took me three days before I finally accepted to join read.cash after a friend of mine told me about it. I went through every inch of the website trying to make sure I figure out any hidden agenda or possibility of shorting down after a period of time but I sincerely couldn't find any, instead I saw more and more reasons to join the platform and also share my Ideas. The part that really caught my attention was when I saw how they communicated with the users of their platform giving them feedback on all their questions to help them gain more clarity. That action alone totally convince me that they were completely on a whole new level because other platforms out there were not so easily structured were by you can converse with the admins of the platform and they get back to you in time and for that I really give a big thumbs up to the @Read.Cash team. You can see their interactions with users below:

So I finally joined in on the platform, getting to the 'write' page was pretty easy because by now I was already familiar with the website structure from my research. So I clicked on the 'write' link and it redirected me to the 'write' page where I was to begin writing my article. I was a bit excited because it's been a long while since I set my mind to actually write an article without already knowing where to begin. I couldn't tell if I was too excited or just confused but all I know is I just went blank while my hands where on my keyboard thinking of which letter to punch first.

After sometime I couldn't come up with anything much so I cleared my write up and just went for a normal introductory right up like I saw many others do on this platform. So I just wrote a bit about myself, my likes and all and within minutes I was done. I published it and within seconds it was live.

So that my first post was upvoted on this platform within hours of which I didn't expect. You can see my first upvote on this platform below:

So I proceeded to try out the withdrawal process and it was flawless, my funds arrived in my wallet almost instantly and that was when it became so clear that truly read.cash was the best so far I have encountered. Ever since then, I have put in my best to make sure my articles are valuable and worth reading piece by piece but i still consider my self an amateur compaired to professional writers.
