When I started writing online, it was just like having one of my dreams come true. I really loved writing but never knew I will instead become a professional freelance writer or blogger. I had just one competitor for the position of creative writing (composition) in the my last years in secondary school. I could create any story on anything the teacher gave.
I dreamed of one day becoming a writer. It wasn’t easy even though I have some poems. I started writing fictions and gave up. I asked myself if being a professional freelance writer or blogger will be that easy.
In the beginning, I thought writing online was just like normal writing. My first blog posts were a failure. One thing many people fail to understand is writing online is different from writing for paper print.
I was super excited when I started this blog. The moment I get up, I have hundreds of ideas, but by the time I touch my keyboards, they disappear into thin air.
Fast forward today, blogging and freelance writing makes a great chunk of my income. I have been ghost blogging for 2 years now for many bloggers. Since 2016, I have been providing content as a tech journalist, coffee reporter for Africa, entertainment and so on.
The journey may not be that easy, but for those who are passionate and want to use it to make a living, perseverance and persistence is key. When ever you see these 3Ps (Passion, Perseverance & Persistence) in one sentence, know there is success at the end.
With all these difficulties encountered in all these, I decided not to let others go through this when I can help. I may not be getting the views like the get-rich blogs will promise you. Believe me, I get the necessary audience.
