As a young champ, I have always thought of internet business as a medium of making money and sustaining ones family while being your boss and you also get to spend a lot of time with your family.
During my quest to meet my goals, I ran into a lot of scammers and fake services with the get rich quick internet syndrome. I soon realized that, It doesn`t work that way.
I came across blogging in 2007 and was denied several time from accessing the Adsense scheme. So I blogged for fun. But later got very lazy, So I decided to run a Magazine company. I got a name for the Magazine (Binoculars Magazine), as a young undergraduate, I went in search for sponsors but no one wants to sponsor or even advertize in a “To-Be-Introduced-into-the-Market” brand. So I got an idea to lunch a .blogspot site for the magazine.
So I opened a blog for Binoculars but the sub-domain and domain was not available so, I scrabble through getting upset and discouraged. But i decided to just get a domain that is so different from the name of the magazine (https://www.internetiger.blogspot.com).
I blogged, designed the templates, posted all contents and also publicized the contents via different media agenda, groups and communities.
But one major thing I never considered was that most of the content found in the blogsite didn`t reflect the vision and goals of Binoculars magazine and the contents were copied from other sites without adequate references. I didn’t think of the implication of this because I was making more off that, little did I know, that I have no unique selling proposition, I make money off the blog via PPC but there was not life in the blog as visitors left no footprint behind after each visits.
