Blogging industry in Nigeria has become so competitive that it is difficult to hand pick the top bloggers in one easy count. Old blogs are waxing stronger, new blogs are coming on stream daily and everyone is striving to outrank the other. Blogging has truly become big business in Nigeria.
Coming up with this list of top 25 bloggers in Nigeria to watch out for in 2014 was like having to filter salt out of the sand. It took some time of personal research and getting in contact with few friends to be able to compile this list. Some top blogs found their way into the list because of the influence they still have, while majority of the others are blogs that have not really been given exposure before even though they have been doing relatively great.
This list was compiled without any intention to show favoritism to a particular blogger. The order of arrangement of these blogs is not to be taken to mean their order of ranking. There is the possibility that one or two good blogs that should make this list might have been omitted not intentionally but by mistake (if there is any); and so I would say such bloggers should not take things personal as having to pick from thousands of blogs in Nigeria is by no means an easy job.
I have tried to see that this list is free from controversies by ensuring that those blogs worthy of mention are actually here. However, there are some blogs I already wrote about in my post on MBT titled Top 10 Popular Bloggers From Nigeria – 2013, so you can check out the post to see which bloggers are on the list.
Several factor like blog popularity, PR, Alexa ranking, domain Authority, Subscribers’ base, monthly page views, blog interactivity, etc were put into consideration before arriving at this list of top 25 bloggers in Nigeria to watch out for in 2014. So who made this list?
1. Linda Ikeji
