Originally the word blog came from“weblog.” It can better be viewed or thought of as an online journal or diary, although blogs are used for so much more now, like online journalism, marketing, online store and even rendering of services. A blogger is a person who blogs or writes content or articles for a blog. Blogging is the act of writing a post for a blog. A blogger according to google’s definition is someone who shares, writes, and pastes content or knowledge online/on the Internet. Since I was a young star, I have been intrigued with information sharing especially new knowledge research and distribution.
Online journalism is a very sensitive aspect to our existence as humans since the world is now a global village and I felt as a person blogging is key to making an impact on our development and mutual understanding of each other across the globe. It could sometimes be a means of passing messages’ across or spread of information. Writing is a hobby to me and the thought of getting my write-ups to read is fascinating. To be precise, sport and politics is aspects that I would like to focus on as a blogger. Reading other people’s write-ups and the comments from other readers have brought me to a conclusion that a lot of people especially in Nigeria here are less informed about the content of discourse times, am not disproving there are some experts among the populace but a lot are ignorant of the topic and they don’t bother to do proper research, which has led to the spread to false information. As an aspiring blogger, tackling false information is a motivation for my intent.
Blogging with persistence and diligence tends to be a high monetary and rewarding job in this era or generation with the net worth of people like Linda Ikeji and other solid examples. With the economic situation of the country a legitimate side job or “hustle” is necessary to survive the harsh economic situation. This has served as a motivation to me to make it as an article blogger. The fact that sharing of an informed opinion of mine can be financially rewarding makes the aspiration worth it.
Blogging with the right intent is a noble profession that is informative and it is core to the spread of information and knowledge to society. This has formed a base for my perspective as an aspiring blogger. Although there are negative and positive to it. If done the right way, it can serve as an instrument of change to the global community in which I would like to be the voice of change. Not the spread of fake news.
Personally, I would likely become an article blog writer to develop and learn the new transferable skill to develop my professional life. Since blogs are read by many people around the world, I believe I can impart the life of others, get new opportunities and develop my confidence level by sharing important issues with the rest of the world. It would enable me to be exposed to different aspects of culture through various reviews by others and critics of different perspectives. It would help me to develop my professional habit and discipline become more of an organized thinker.
I would like to create personal content that would be inscribed only to me. A person like Linda Ikeji who is a household name in the Nigerian blogger’s circle is a source of inspiration to me, she is worldwide known, her fame and influence have a long reach which is admirable by every upcoming youth. As a youth with the benefit of little hindsight and some foresight, all put together and making a perfect judgment. I believe that blogging is done with the right ethics is a great and noble profession.
