The Difference between a Nigerian Blogger, an Indian Blogger and an American Blogger. Part 2!

The Difference between a Nigerian Blogger, an Indian blogger and an American blogger is of course the issue on board for today. I vividly do remember that I have written such post on my blog before and so I guess this is going to be the part 2. For those who missed the first part, check it out.

When it comes to even movies, I guess there is even a big difference in their trends. Whiles there is the high possibility of a Nigerian movie somehow ending in part two or three like this post, Indian movies have one unique character of always ending in love with the main man having his dream woman always at the end but when it comes to American movies, they have an interesting way of playing with your mind. Hahaha!

Is that how it is when it comes to blogging? Blogging is one beautiful thing many do find themselves in because it is perceived to be that easy thing all of us could find ourselves in and obviously the luxury will start flowing.

What attract many into the blogging scene be it the blogger being a Nigerian, an Indian or an American mainly has to do with the numerous successes few bloggers write about on their blogs.

Now let move back to the big question on board, what is that big difference between a Nigerian blogger, an Indian blogger and an American blogger? The funniest thing is that they all came to the blogosphere with one big mission which is to achieve freedom and at least make some cool bucks from their hard work.

Another interesting similarity between these bloggers is the fact that they all love Adsense if not all of them, about 90% of them do. Hahaha! I do hope it goes beyond the 90% though. What again do they have in common?

They all complain when Adsense earnings are low and slam Google Adsense when they are banned. HAHAHA!

Before we obviously move into business, it is obviously clear that this post wouldn’t be complete without my good friend Little Johnny.  He is involved in one wedding scandal.

This particular wedding event occurred at his own wedding reception. This is what he had to say at the wedding vote of thanks.

  1. I want to first of all thank the Lord Almighty for creating my wife and to also thank the pastor and his wife for lending us their wedding rings.
  2. Special appreciation to my landlord who lent us his car.
  3. I am most grateful to my boss for approving the loan I used for the wedding.
  4. Big thanks to the committee of friends for the appeal fund they raised on my behalf.
  5. Also to my brother’s wife, thank you for lending us your wedding gown.
  6. I’m so grateful to the cake designer for the cake. I promised to return it tomorrow morning as agreed without cutting or part of it.
  7. Special thanks to my friends who brought food from their homes to help me feed you all. Please for those who were served food good luck and for Those who didn’t get any, well we will make it up to you during our child dedication (hopefully next year).
  8. Very big thanks to my parents for bringing the village cultural band to supply the music as well as entertain us all here, today.
  9. Not forgetting the church marriage committee, thank you for persuading my wife to marry me.
  10. Appreciation to the married men in the church for rushing me into this marriage.
  11. The women are not left out, thanks a lot for teaching my wife how to dance.
  12. To the youths, thank you for sweeping and decorating this venue with palm fronds.
  13. I am also grateful to my teenage friends for helping with the Sobolo drink
  14. Appreciation to my co-tenants for contributing money for the cameraman
  15. Well, I wish you all safe journey and I pray you don’t experience what I suffered for this wedding. Thank you all.

Hahaha! As to whether this marriage is going to last just as Little Johnny plans, time will obviously be the judge at the end. I think the wedding was dissolved right at the reception.

But that obviously is the palaver of Little Johnny and not something we have to think of. Let move back to business as usual and once again let me repeat myself, what is that difference between a Nigerian blogger, an Indian blogger and an American blogger?

This is where the discussion begins. When it comes to blogging, the nationals of Nigeria and Indians as well as Americans can’t be left out. They seem to be the main stay as far as blogging is concern.

But the most interesting thing is that they all seem to have a peculiar character which distinguishes them from one another.

When it comes to Nigeria, the issue of entertainment is what they love to write about. Nothing entertainment doesn’t go through their lenses without proper scrutiny but the funny thing about most Nigerian bloggers is the fact that most of them are greedy and the downfall of a fellow blogger brings them more joy and I guess the issue of Linda Ikeji portrayed that vividly well. Hahaha!

And when we come to our Indian bloggers, there is one disintinctive trace about them, they have lots of blogging personalities to look up to with so many names who are Indians making it in this industry we call blogging but one funny thing about them as well has to do with the fact most Indian bloggers hardly speak the truth especially when it comes to issues of how much they make online. This breed jealousy among them. Hahaha!

With our American bloggers, they always have this zeal of channeling out those lovely personal development posts but the unfortunate thing is that it will be very difficult for an American to live on his or her blog when the blog even earns him $1000 monthly. Hahaha!

Your Say now

  1. Hi Emmanuel,
    You’re really on point bro. It’s a sad truth that most Nigerian bloggers celebrate the downfall of their fellow bloggers. Most Nigerian bloggers see others as rivals. But for the Americans, those guys like competition, I love them for that. Anyways, thanks bro Emmanuel for sharing these awesome post. Do have a nice and happy weeks ahead.

  2. I really love the Indian part Kabie.. They lie about their earnings alot.. Lol, even when it’s clear that they have got one of the lowest CPC..

    I wonder how they come up with such figures, that make other bloggers look themselves in the mirror and just Wana die!

    Obviously, an American can live on his blog, Americans are give too much respect by Adsense, maybe because Google’s headquarters is located there.. One adsebse click from am American visit, and there is a bang on his adsense.

    They deserve it all the same, they are trustworthy with their articles and verify facts before publishing..

    for us in Nigeria, that’s a story for another day..

    Thanks for the lovely piece Emmanuel.. Have a great day.

    Best Regards
    Nosa

  3. Hi Emmanuel,

    Very interesting read. I can’t speak for any other nationality other than American, obviously being one.

    I can say that we are very competitive and driven when it comes to success verses failure. Yet, the successful accept failure and see it for what it is… a learning lesson to help us get to the next level.

    I know a lot of extremely wealthy people and each one will tell you that it’s their failures that made them successful. So embrace it, learn from it and push through it.

    Regarding blogging, I think your points are too general. There are many different types of blogs that have many different purposes. My blog is not necessarily meant to be monetized. It’s meant to show my competency, skill set, and demonstrate how I think to prospective clients who are both corporations and small businesses inside the United States.

    But another blogger might not be a business blogger in that sense…

    I hope that all makes sense?

    I hope you’re having an awesome week and it was really interesting to learn how different cultures and nationalities perceive one another.

  4. Hi Emmanuel

    Now time to comment, you are too much. I enjoyed both part 1 and 2. The thing is that you are right about Nigerians but don’t know about Indians and Americans. Thumbs up

      1. You are the man. You have revealed something that is so important. It is sad but shows the reason why there are no functional blogging communities in Nigeria.

        The Linda Saga did reveal the jealousy and greediness of some bloggers. Another thing again which you mentioned is the issue of entertainment, the most profitable niche in Nigeria. Naija like gist, chat and gossip. lol. Thanks for this great article.

  5. Hi Emmanuel,
    I don’t think that there is any country that occupies the internet most except these three above mentioned countries. I’m a NIgerian, I never felt okay with what happened with Linda Ikeji, beside you might say it’s because I’m not in her niche or whatsoever, but I know I did sympatized with her.

    i don’t get happy at somebodies downfall, rather I enjoy joining you celeberate there properities.
    Well nice one, thanks for sharing.

  6. Hello Emmanuel,

    Each time you refresh, you are delivered with a new post and unique post.Thanks for sharing this awesome and unique post with us.

    Have a great day 🙂

  7. What about European or Italian bloggers, Emmanuel?
    Ahahahah… 🙂

    Loved your post.
    I’ve never stopped to really think about the difference between Nigerian, Indian or American bloggers.

    What I can say, is that we should be proud of our results, without just bragging.
    Relationships and connections are so important, we should be collaborative with each other, without asking something back.

    I always have three words in my mind, when blogging:
    Be Real, Be Honest, Be Yourself.

    Thanks for sharing, funny and interesting post, Emmanuel!
    Have an awesome day.

  8. Hi Emmanuel,

    Its somehow a funny discussion like always.

    One thing I like the most about you while explaining about bloggers is that you have include their positive and negative points both.

    Some bloggers get afraid to reveal what they think about other bloggers.

    Thanks for sharing with us.

  9. HiEmmanuel,
    I must say that you are the most unique blogger I have ever seen. I don’t know from where you get these kind of blog post ideas but it’s out standing. Keep it up friend…

    Sincerely –
    MSI Sakib

  10. Hi Emmanuel,

    Love your way of blogging!! You made me chuckle with the story of Johnny Little and the wedding!!

    I am neither of the three nationalities you mentioned. I am Egyptian living in Canada.

    I think every blogger has his/her own voice and unique in some way or another, no matter what nationality they are, and building relationships and connecting with other bloggers is what matters most to me and I think there is enough for everyone to be successful if they give of themselves to others and deal with the Abundant mindset.

    Thanks for sharing your views. Great Share!! Have a great weekend ahead.

    Be Blessed,

    Neamat

  11. Thanks for sharing..! Actually, I have no idea between the Indian and Nigerian bloggers. However, I have connected with a lot of Indian and some of Nigerian bloggers. They always do the great thing about blogging. I really love to learn from them from my country, Cambodia..! 🙂 This interesting tips to me..

  12. Hi,

    The interesting fact is the $1000 month is very low for an American blogger, while it does wonders for a Nigerian or Indian blogger.

    From what I have experienced, the number of Indian and Nigerian bloggers outnumber the other country bloggers.

    Have a great day buddy. 🙂

  13. You always sound funny in your starting approach, laughing through. You really make good points regarding the blogger from these 3 parts of the world. I could agree with your observation about Nigeria blogger. This isn’t only peculiar to Nigeria.

    I think most Nigerian bloggers were not happy with Linda’s case. At least I wasn’t.

    The American bloggers experience high conversion and return per action because of the nature of the traffic. Any blogger who has a great success from American markets could experience the same. However, making $1000 by average American wont back him for a living unlike the other two. This is because of the varied cost of living and average standard.

    The Indian bloggers are just as you mentioned. Good though, others don’t always share their income source and actual figure. When the source is mentioned, expect some sort of affiliate links.

    How many bloggers give detail of the methods and techniques to their success.

  14. Hi Emmanuel,

    This is really an interesting post. I really don’t know much more about Nigerian blogger as you mention here.
    I’m also a blogger (People don’t call me blogger, I call myself as blogger 😀 ) from Bangladesh. I like to generate revenue from my blog via affiliate marketing and I don’t like Adsense. Because most of my blog visitor comes from India (Although I don’t want Indian Visitors 😛 ) so that the CPC is too low.

  15. Well I’m an Indian and I too don’t know much about Nigerian bloggers. And I must say every people tends believe that their region people are great and I respect it.

    Thanks for the unique post.

  16. Can’t stop smiling after reading this, the reason why most Nigerian bloggers are entertainment blogger is simply because most successful Nigerian bloggers run entertainment blogs…lol… But I think that is changing very fast now.

    So good to be back on here, clearing the cobweb on my blog, but I would definitely take my time to read as much as I can.

  17. Hey Bro

    Good creative writer you’re I’m not sure how you will be choosing such topics.American or Nigerian or Indian or other countries all have different type of life styles.Before starting blogging I don’t have any Nigerian bloggers or American bloggers etc but now have more friends.Glad to see an point about Indian movie

  18. the post has a catchy title. although I didn’t read the part 1 of this, had to take a glimpse at what the author had in mind. for me i think Indian bloggers are better bloggers. going round the sites they own I’ve seen something unique in them they’re like the pros.

    completely agree about the similarities, we all do it for the money. this post is quite a good one. should we expect the part 3?

  19. It’s quite an Ugly thing the way many Nigerian Bloggers + even Internet marketers/Freelancers see themselves in Nigeria, they are so happy to see their fellow fall, and compete like Blogging is a Do-or-die Affair, another big Problem is the issue of Too many Entertainment Bloggers (They feel they will make money without working Hard in the niche), I hope in time, this way of thinking will be adjusted correctly soon.
    On the part of Indian bloggers, those guys are quite good in the industry, but I am not cool with the fact aome of them Lie about their Earnings and I am not surprised hearing it again.
    Americans? hmmm… They like to diversify but I don’t agree with what you said abou them, I know few who definitely Live on their Blog’s earnings 😀
    All same Kabenlah, this was an interesting post Bro

  20. Nigerian blogs are entertainment blogs, damn it i hate entertainment to the core but i once started with entertainment but i switched to what i like doing later on. I do not have in mind to rely on blogging, i dream of diversifying.

  21. Well I’m an Indian. And I would like to say you that not all Indian blogger are thinking like whatever you are mentioning. You may know Harsh Agarwal of Shoutmeloud.com! How he share his thoughts.

    Yes, I agree India have lowest CPC for Adsense. But it is due to the 2nd highest number of population in the world.
