8 Common Why Most New Bloggers Quit Blogging 1
Recently, I’ve been getting quite a lot of emails from people seeking clarification about issues in blogging and how to start a blog.

I decided to make this post so you don’t end up quitting on the long run. Blogging is a tough but fruitful journey and only the tough ones last on the blogosphere.

Here are 8 common reasons why people quit blogging :

Not Knowing Anything About Blogging.

If you want to start blogging then the very first thing you should do is to study the system. Most bloggers start  blogging without any  knowledge of how the system works and  end up doing nothing.

Always make proper research before starting blogging. It will be a stepping stone to  your success.

Find what interests you and start a blog about it.

Insufficient Time

When you will ask any blogger who failed why he left blogging, he’ll probably say ” I didn’t have enough time to work on the  blog” .

A number of people start blogging with lots of enthusiasm and then end up quitting it because of lack of time.
.
Try to manage your time properly.

I put a whole lot of time to work on my blog.

Giving up Quickly

So many times, I’ve wanted to give up blogging but when I remember all the work I’ve put in, I simply refuse to quit and let all I’ve worked for go down the drain.
The secret to success is – Never ever quit .

Most new bloggers get tired within the first 1 one month that they finally come to the point that they decide to quit.

After a proper analysis, I discovered that most newbie bloggers quit during the first 3 months.

No proper Writing Skills

I’ve seen a lot of blogs created by new bloggers and most times when they try to create unique content, they end up creating a catastrophe ; a post full of blunders and grammatical errors.

Blogging is about learning  and putting it in your own words. Bloggers write articles daily but often forget to pay attention to their writing skills. So lack of writing skill is one of the big obstacles.

Not Having A Proper Plan

I normally make plans on what to do next for my blog and constantly planning strategies on how to make the blog get to where I want it to.

Most new bloggers don’t know about the concept of making plans and how to execute them with proper time and resource management. Blogging is like a business, if you fail to plan, you’re planning to fail.

Lack of Promotion
Promotion is a continuous process and you shouldn’t stop till you get some good loyal readers.

Finding the best ways to promote a niche is a tough job. When they can’t discover any means to promote their blogs, they just quit.

Not Being Persistent and Consistent

Every thing you do in life needs persistence and consistency.

In the first few days of starting a blog, people keep writing posts with full enthusiasm and atleast 5-10 articles a week ( I wrote up to 10 on my news blog ). Along the way, they feel that they aren’t getting enough traffic and earning for their blog and then simply quit

Not Making Money

When I started blogging, I ran a news blog for about 3 months without earning anything but I continued. I didn’t quit because I just wanted to make a name for myself in the blogosphere. On the long run, the news blog failed because it was really giving me stress. I made 800 posts on the news blog and got a total page view of 150,000. I was frustrated. When I compared NaijaTechGuy to the other blog, it’s a huge difference. I’ve had over 1 million page views on my blog with the same number of posts I had on the news blog.

This is one of the biggest reasons why people just quit blogging after some time.I always tell people -  if you start a blog with the mindset that you’re just going to make huge money in a short space of time, then blogging is certainly not for you. Unless you want to invest massively in advertising and get enough returns.

Making money online is not easy and it is one of the things that motivate people to continue blogging.

When people don’t make money for first 3-4 months then they think just think about quitting blogging.

Summary
Start doing some things that’ll to take your blog to the next level, soon you will start reaping the fruits.  Be creative- find what is not in place in other blogs, add it to yours and run it with your own style.

Don’t feel like quitting. Give your best on your blog.

I drop my pen at this point.

I'm a Computer Science Student of The University of Port Harcourt and a Chelsea Fan. I love RnB and A little Trap Music. Tech flows in my veins. I love to have fun with friends and I read a lot.

9Mobile In Trouble Again As New Owners ‘Teleology’ Pull Out Of Telco

Published

on

9Mobile

9mobile in trouble again. According to reports reaching me , Teleology Holdings, the new owners of 9mobile ,may just have withdrawn from further participation in the 9mobile project.

If you could recall during the 9mobile crisis , Teleology acquired 9mobile, previously  Etisalat, in November 2018 —  eight months after it made an initial $500million non-refundable deposit to acquire the telco, and a cumulative 10 months after the takeover was billed to have been finalized.



Teleology Holdings, led by Adrian Wood,  a pioneer Chief Executive Officer of MTN Nigeria, eventually won the final bid — ahead of Airtel, Globacom, Smile and Helios.

9Mobile

 

Teleology Holdings’ successful bid for 9mobile was successful due to the quality of its proposed seven-man management team led by Wood, and was approved by the NCC Technical Evaluation Committee, the 13-member bank lending syndicate as well as the acquisition finance provider, Afreximbank.

 

9mobile Woes Continue

However, according to developing reports, Teleology Holdings has become extremely uncomfortable with actions taken outside of the agreed business plan, since their initial takeover, considering it has been blocked from concluding a management services contract with the local joint venture, Teleology Nigeria Limited.

The proposed management services contract would have enabled Teleology Holdings and its team of experts oversee the implementation of the its elaborate business plans including funding proposals — but that so far been impossible.

 

9Mobile

Wood is understood to have resigned from the boards of Emerging Markets Telecommunication Services (trading as 9mobile) as well as Teleology Nigeria Limited, and has already communicated his current disenchantment with the 9Mobile project to his confidants in Teleology.

According to Woods, 9mobile is an exciting opportunity to build a revolutionary mobile network that could be the pride of Nigeria. Unfortunately, it appears that we will not be able to participate. We now must stand down from further work on the 9mobile project.”

Has 9mobile become the new Econet? We can’t tell. Let me know what you think in the comments

How Google Plans On Replacing Android With Fuschia OS Soon

How Google Plans On Replacing Android With Fuschia OS Soon 8
You probably don’t need telling that Android is a very powerful and versatile operating system but Google is working on something that might end up as the direct replacement  – Fuschia.

How Google Plans On Replacing Android With Fuschia OS Soon 9

In this post, I’ll be explaining why Fuschia may actually replace Android
Kernels
Kernels are the core of any operating system, they provide the basic mechanisms around which the os can be built. A lot of the problems Android faces today is as a result of the fact it was built around the linux kernel whicj was not originally intended for it. 
As a matter of fact,  Android OS was originally meant for digital cameras so on it’s core it isn’t exactly specialized for what a smartphone should do
So what about Fuschia?
Fuschia is based on a completely different Kernel with 2 key benefits.
1. It is designed with the smart connected feature in mind
2. It’s more specific in its code and can be built on a wide range of devices
This kernel is called Zircon .
 So what’s the benefit ?
The reason that Fuschia is powerful is that this kernel runs on completely everything from phones abd TVs to Fridges and traffic lights.
One OS for everything. As more devices enter people’s homes, this would mean seamless integration among devices.
Your music could switch to your speaker when you enter a room and continue in your car when you get in.
Also Fuschia would be built around the idea of voice commands. Less tapping , More talking.
Fuschia would also solve one of the major problems of Android which is Fragmentation.

Fragmentation
Fragmentation is the reason most Android phones don’t perform as well as their hardware is capable of.
This exists because Android is a bit of a mess. It has software, kernel and drivers all working together in a slightly different configuration on each device.
That’s why Google just can’t push an update to any device out there. These 3 aspects have to be decoupled manually.
Google has little control of how users experience Android on 95% of phones.
This is a problem because these OEMs don’t have an incentive to keep your device updated. They prefer you get a new device if you want to upgrade so they can make more money.
Fuschia is cleaner built with updates in mind. Fuschia would help Google regain control of the end user software experience.
Fuschia is also written on the Flutter software development kit which is important because this runs on Android too. This would make sure Android apps run on it. You don’t expect Google to start from scratch with the already vast library of apps and games available.

So the big question –
When will Fuschia Replace Android
Considering that brands always make the 10th version of their products seem like the peak of their current product line. Android 10 might be replaced by Fuschia OS.
If it’s not, then we should be looking at the next couple of years.

Unbelievable - Glo, 9mobile, NTEL Customers To  Be Cut Off From Calling Other Networks 10
NCC has given MTN and Airtel approval to bar Glo and 9mobile customers from calling their network over failure to pay Interconnect Debt.

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has granted disconnection approval to mobile network operators (MNOs) to disconnect owing colleagues over rise in interconnect debt and failure of the affected operators to pay.

NCC has asked MTN, Airtel and IHS to disconnect, on partial basis, services to Globacom, Ntel (MNOs) and interconnect exchange points including Breeze, Exchange, Solid, Medallion and Niconnx.

The implication of this development is that over 35 millions of subscribers would soon start to experience service disruptions.

While the affected operators have between the next 10 and 21 days, starting from 18th Dec to make amends or risk disconnections,

The Commission also said it has approved the Disconnection of Ntel and Globacom from the facilities of IHS in accordance with Section 103 of the Nigerian Communications Act 2003 and the Guidelines on Procedure for Granting Approval to Disconnect Telecommunications Operators.

The Commission informed that 9Mobile, Smile and Swift are also to be disconnected from IHS facilities and ATC Wireless Infrastructure Limited.

“At the expiration of 10 days from the date of this notice, subscribers on the network of Ntel and Globacom will no longer be able to make calls to Airtel and MTN, but will be able to receive calls. Furthermore, Ntel and Globacom will be disconnected from the facilities of IHS.”
