Blogging in Nigeria have become a serious business taking a completely different dimension in recent years from what it used to be. Blogging gives people platforms to air their views in any matter of their interest as well as creating solid business for smart entrepreneurs. While some Nigerian blogs and bloggers are still struggling to hit the golden jackpots, others are currently making the real big money and enjoying the dot com lifestyle as well as the the glamours that come with it.
This list of top 100 Nigerian blogs is the most complete and the most accurate list you can get anywhere. We relied on SimilarWeb and Alexa as the major sources of metrics, including other factors such as the revenue potential, blog’s influence to its readers and the general public.
Currently there is no proper distinction between most Nigerian Blogs and Nigerian news websites. It is rather unfortunate that the Nigeria blogsphere is being dominated by news curators in place of true bloggers. Until the true bloggers begin to emerge in number, the copy and paste people will continue to be regarded as bloggers in Nigeria. But when the true bloggers begin to take their place (which I hope soon) the current mediocrity will be done away with.
