  15. Nairaland is an awesome forum, but wish there were other Nigeria forum in its class. There’s something about monopoly that doesn’t allow for variety or consider the user experience.

    Competition brings out the best in any company.

    • I was going to say that bro. Being the no. 1 blogger in Nigeria has to call for classic site design and layout and not just the name.

  16. Writerincharge by Bamidele is a blog I so much respect. I think most of his readers are sources from abroad. He is a good coach to many who want to learn freelancing. The list is ok. but I guess, we should have it reviewd by now to reflect the current change.

  18. I never knew Nigerians have become this blog-tech. Well I’m a christian teacher, radically, making all efforts to spread the gospel. And blogging is one of my choice medium. I’m working hard on righteousfaith.wordpress.com to take it top list soon. And i believe it will make to the top ten soon by God’s grace.
    Nice job.

  19. Yeah Dhron! But I say to myself, so these are my competitors I will beat soon. Great Bloggers Indeed! I am not yet a successful blogger yet but I am convinced the key is to stick to your passion and blog because you love it and one day your blog will become big.
