IMPORTANT BLOGGING SUCCESS FACTOR
Don’t join others using other people’s content. Write your own original contents
Keep in mind that your success lies in your consistency and your ability to supply original useful contents.

You can simply get ideas from others but ensure you write your own original contents. www.naijagists.com

Popular sites like Freelancer.com, etc will allow you to register and take projects from people.
I’m not a fan of freelance because it’s highly saturated and competitive.
You can visit Freelancer.com and register as a freelancer.
I use to love Scriptlance.com however, it has been acquired by Freelancer.com.
To start freelancing, simply visit any of the popular freelance sites, browse through their project and apply for them.

Agriculture / Farming is one of the most profitable ways to make money in Nigeria today.
Most of our graduates limit themselves by thinking getting an office job in the only way to make it in life. www.naijagists.com

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo is a big time farmer and that’s one of the secret to his success.
He’s got several acres of land in Ogun state dedicated to his farming business.
So keep in mind that farming still remains one of the most profitable ways to get wealth worldwide.
To all our youths, stop saying you can’t find a job, save some money, buy a land and cultivate it.
