The Former Nigeria  President Goodluck Jonathan has showered praise on the Nigerian  former Head of State Abdulsalam Abubakar who turns 76 today.


  In a statement by his media aide, Ikechukwu Eze, the former president described Abubakar as a patriot and a man of peace who Nigeria owes a debt of gratitude.
  However, Goodluck Jonathan lauded Abubakar for arranging the shortest transition from military to civilian rule that has brought the longest civilian dispensation in the nation’s history, describing it as proof of the ex-general’s great wisdom.
  He further described as a fitting tribute that Abubakar’s birthday falls close to the Eid-el-Fitri celebration, just almost a coincidence.
“May you be blessed because just as the Muslim Ummah celebrates the end of Ramadan, Nigeria celebrates you for ending military rule.
“On this very special anniversary, I join you, your family, well-wishers and millions of other Nigerians to give thanks to Almighty God for a life of great achievements and inspiring service to humanity.”
        This year's World Cup will open with a Group A fixture between the host nation Russia and Saudi Arabia on June 14 at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, kicking off the beginning of the group stages.

   Thursday's match will be the only one held on that day to coincide with the opening ceremony, with three group stage fixtures taking place each day until June 28.
   
   Russia are fortunately a first-time hosts of the tournament thereby qualified automatically, and will be making their fourth appearance at the campaign since 1990.

  Although, the Asian qualifiers Saudi Arabia's best result at a World Cup was finishing in the last 16 in 1994, and will be hoping for a better finish this tournament.

    Former Plateau State Governor, Joshua Dariye, has been found guilty of corruption by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission. 

     The Federal Capital Territory High Court, Abuja, sitting in Gudu, Abuja found the Ex-governor guilty on a six count charge of unlawful transfer of a whooping sum of N1.126 billion ecological fund of his state to the South West chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. 

    However, the case was brought before Justice Adebukola Banjoko about 11 years ago by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
    

    Dariye, who ruled Plateau State between 1999 and 2007, was was arraigned by the EFCC on July 13, 2007 on allegations of money laundering and other corruption charges.
    
     The EFCC caused him of moving funds into the account of Ebenezer Ratnen Venture, alleged to be one of the companies through which he siphoned the funds.


     Just recently, another former Governor of Taraba State, Jolly Nyame, was last week sentenced to 28 years imprisonment on a two-count charge in a case of corruption brought against him by the EFCC.
      Moreover, the sentences are to run concurrently, hence Nyame is to spend 14 years in jail.


Real Madrid football club on Tuesday announced the appointment of the Spain's Julen Lopetegui as their new 
head coach from next season while parading the Spain's national team of the start of the prestigious  World Cup tournament .                       

 Unfortunately for the new Los Blancos coach, Julen Lopetegui, he has been sacked as the head coach of Spain national team.   This dismissal was confirmed during a press conference on Wednesday morning, a day after the LaLiga club announced he would be replacing Zinedine Zidane.

“Lopetegui has been a great Coach. But we cannot accept this behaviour,” Rubiales said.  Today being the 13th of June 2018, an eve to the Russia 2018, will be remembered for such a dramatic occurrence.  Although, Julen  Lopetegui will be relaxed for now trying to ease up the recent tension and plan ahead for another dramatic Real Madrid season come 2018/2019 season as he is expected to deliver from the Spain's capital.

In so doing, these criminal impostors cause undue and unfair public opinions and outrage against the Nigerian Army by reason of criminal acts that were clearly perpetrated by them. The Authorities of 81 Division hereby urges members of the public to always beware of imposters and to always reach out and call the numbers below whenever in doubt or whenever they see persons in uniform engaged in any form of illegality.

There for  Best Way to Make Money Blogging

How Do You Make Money Blogging?

The moment you decide to use your blog to make money, you’re no longer just a blogger. At that moment, you also become an entrepreneur, and your blog becomes a small business.

You’ve probably heard of financial planners giving free seminars to attract clients, right?

Well, blogging is a lot like those free seminars. You’re giving away your expertise and knowledge in the hopes of attracting customers and then gaining their trust.

In other words, if your goal is to make money with your blog, use it as a lead generation mechanism. Nurture those leads until they are ready to purchase, and the profit can quickly snowball.

My Story of Making Money Blogging

It took me about five years to earn my first dollar.
During that time, I started four different blogs, working on them at night and on the weekends. The first three failed. Despite investing hundreds of hours into each one, I made too many mistakes, and I eventually had to shut the blogs down. I didn’t earn a penny from them.

And I won’t lie to you… it sucked.
Each time a blog failed, I seriously thought about quitting. I felt like I was putting in all that time and energy for nothing.

But it wasn’t true. I was learning.
Yes, I made a lot of mistakes, but I didn’t repeat them. So, while those first four blogs were all “failures,” each one was also closer to success than the last.

With the fourth blog, everything finally clicked. I was getting 1000 visitors a day within about two months, and I sold it for $10,000. That’s when I knew I was onto something.

From there, I went to work for other big blogs for a few years, helping grow Copyblogger and KISSmetrics into what they are today. Eventually though, I felt the itch to go out on my own again, so I left and started this blog. It now turns a fairly steady $100,000+ a month.

In total, it took me about eight years to get here, but in exchange for investing those eight years, I now have enough money to support me until the day I die. Also, every day I get emails from people telling me how I changed their lives for the better.
So, it was worth it. No question.
But was it easy?
No. It was just as hard as starting any other business.

I did learn a thing or two that might speed along the process for others, though. Let’s start by talking about the exact step-by-step process for how to make money blogging.

Here’s How to Make Money Blogging

1.    Set up your blog
2.    Write content that gets lots of traffic
3.    Convert visitors into email subscribers
4.    Send those subscribers content that builds trust
5.    Sell products or services your audience wants

The problem?

It’s hard to do. The process is simple on the surface, but each step is enormously complicated and requires extraordinary skill. Especially the last one.
For instance, do you want to sell your own products or services? If so, which ones?
Here are just a few of the options:

Make money blogging by selling these types of things

Or… what if you don’t have any products and services to sell? What should you do then?
Well, you can also make money blogging by selling someone else’s products and services.
The most conventional (and least profitable) method is selling advertising, where you allow companies to promote their products and services to your audience in exchange for a fee. You can also form partnerships with other companies, promoting their products and services and earning a commission each time one of your readers purchases. This is called “affiliate marketing.”

Which model should you choose? What should you do?

Well, I can give you my thoughts. After a decade in this business, I’ve learned a few things, and I believe some of them might surprise you…

Don’t Sell Advertising (or Use Google AdSense)

Ask your average beginner how they plan to make money blogging, and they’ll say they plan to sell ads on their site. After all, that’s how big newspapers and magazines monetize, so why not them?
But it’s a mistake.
When I was at Copyblogger, we ran a little experiment. Normally, we refused to sell any ads on the site, but just as a test, we decided to put three ad spots in the right sidebar. The site looked like this:

Initially, we placed ads for our own products in each of the three spots, and we tracked all the sales resulting from someone clicking on the ad. I don’t remember the precise numbers, but we had something like $50,000 in product sales over 30 days. Not too shabby.
Well, out of curiosity, I shopped around to see how much advertisers would pay for the same ad space. The absolute highest rates I could negotiate would’ve brought in only $5,000 per month per ad spot, totaling $15,000 per month — 70% less than we made selling our own products.
And this was for a big, authority site! Imagine the pitiful rates a beginning blogger would get trying to make money blogging that way.
Granted, it’s not really a fair comparison. With your own products, you have to consider the cost of development, support, and other miscellaneous expenses, but even factoring those in, advertising our products was still more profitable by far.
The next most profitable strategy would have been to partner with other companies, collecting a commission on each sale as an affiliate. We never tested it, but I would guess we would’ve made somewhere around $25,000 per month on the spots — 60% more than advertisers would have paid.

The point?
If you have an engaged audience that trusts you, and you’re trying to figure out how to make money blogging, selling ads is never a smart move. And that includes all the variations like Google AdSense, sponsorships, and advertising networks. None of it will make nearly as much money as promoting your own products or earning commissions from promoting someone else’s.

Start with Affiliate Marketing (or Services)

As I write this, it just so happens that I’m in the initial stages of starting a new blog (more details to be announced soon). It’s in a completely different space where I have no products, so I’ve been pondering the best way to monetize it, and here’s what I think…
Affiliate marketing is the smartest strategy.

If you’re not familiar with the term, it’s a business model where you endorse other people’s products or services in exchange for a commission. On software and information products, affiliates typically earn a 50% commission or sometimes even more, so it can be quite lucrative.
Pat Flynn, for example, makes over $100,000 a month in affiliate commissions. Here at Smart Blogger, we mostly promote our own products, but we also make a tidy sum promoting LeadPages and SiteGround:

Granted, you won’t make that kind of money when your blog is small, but when you’re just starting to learn how to make money blogging, affiliate marketing is still a good way to start for several reasons:

•    It’s faster. Instead of investing months or even years creating a product, all you have to do is publish a link on your site. Assuming your audience is engaged, you could be earning commissions within hours or even minutes.
•    The income from affiliate marketing is almost entirely passive. You don’t have to worry about creating products, supporting customers, or any of the technical complexity of selling your own products or services. You can also invest the time you save into growing your traffic, leading to more revenue later.
•    It can guide future product creation. If one affiliate product sells 10X better than all the others you promote, you might want to think about developing your own version of the product, because you have proof your audience wants it.

Personally, I think the advantages are so enormous that when it comes to how to make money blogging, no one should consider any other business model… with one exception:

Service providers.

If you are a graphic designer, real estate agent, attorney, or any other type of service provider, you probably want to offer your services on your blog from day one. The profit you make will almost certainly outstrip anything else, at least in the beginning.

Build the Funnel in Reverse

Even if you’re making fantastic money from affiliate marketing or selling services, chances are you’ll want to try your hand at developing your own product at some point. So, where should you start?

My answer: with blogs, the most profitable price is usually the end of the funnel. Here’s what I mean…

You’ve seen a sales funnel, right? A company entices you with a freebie, then they offer you something cheap but irresistible, and then they gradually sweet talk you into buying more and more expensive stuff. It’s a tried and true marketing tactic, and you should absolutely build a sales funnel for your blog.
What you might not know is you should build it in reverse.
A lot of bloggers launch a cheap e-book as their first product, and then they get frustrated when they don’t make much money. Here’s why: the real profit is at the end of the funnel, not the beginning.
Selling e-books is fine and dandy if you have half a dozen more expensive products to offer your customer afterwards, but it’s downright silly if you don’t. You’re much better off creating and selling the expensive product first, and then gradually building cheaper and cheaper products.
When you do have some less expensive products to sell, you can offer those to new people first, safe in the knowledge that you have something more profitable up your sleeve to sell them later.
Here at Smart Blogger, our products cost $9,997, $1,997, and $997, $497, $197, and $47.  We started on the expensive side first, and we gradually worked our way down. It’s been much, much more profitable this way.

There’s No Such Thing As a “Cheap” Market

“But Jon,” I can hear you spluttering. “I can’t sell a $10,000 product! My customers don’t have that much money.”
My response: you’re 98% right. Unless you’re selling exclusively to multimillionaires, the vast majority of your customer base won’t be able to afford premium products, but what’s interesting is it doesn’t matter. Often, you can make more money selling to the 2% than you can to the entire 98% combined.
For instance, our $10,000 product is a year-long coaching program for bloggers — a group that’s not exactly known for their wealth, but I always fill all ten spots within minutes of opening the program. Here’s why: the last time we opened it, I notified 40,000 bloggers. 2% of 40,000 writers is 800 people. By only accepting 10, I’m creating a situation of extreme scarcity.

You can do the same thing, even if your list is much smaller. If you have 100 subscribers, chances are two of them might be willing to buy premium products or services from you, and those two will often pay you more money than the other 98 combined.

And let me be clear…

I’m not saying you have to charge $10,000. We actually make even more money from our $2000 product than we do the $10,000 one:

The point is, most people are afraid to charge more than $200 for a class, believing that’s all people can afford, but it’s just not true. Every market has customers who are and willing to pay for a premium experience. Give them one.
Just be aware… higher prices demand bigger promises. Let me explain.

The Price Depends on the Promise

Let’s go back to the example of the $10,000 coaching program. How on earth did I get people to pay me that much money?
It’s not because they were stupid. They didn’t get one of my emails and say, “Oh, look honey, this is a fabulous opportunity to throw our money away. Let’s give this good-looking fellow $10,000 just for the hell of it.”

On the contrary, they expected a lot of me. In exchange for that $10,000, I promised to help them launch their blog from scratch and get their first 10,000 email subscribers in only 12 months.

That’s one hell of a promise. Just to put a dollar value on it, you could probably sell a blog with 10,000 subscribers for at least $100,000 in most markets. So, I was essentially promising them $100,000 of value in exchange for only $10,000.

This, my friend, is one of the fundamentals of business.

If you want to charge high prices, you absolutely can, but you must make big promises. Similarly, if you want to charge low prices, you absolutely can, but you must make small promises. In either case though, the value of the promise should be at least 10X the price.

For instance, we have a guest blogging course that retails for $497. In exchange, we promise to help students get featured on a big blog or magazine like The Huffington Post or Forbes. I think it’s fair to say that exposure is worth $5,000 to the right person. So, the product sells easily and well.

Not to say everything is sunflowers and daffodils here, though. In fact, there are two easy ways to screw up:

1.    Charging high prices but making small promises (result: the product doesn’t sell well, and you waste a ton of time).
2.    Charging low prices but making big promises (result: lots of customers, but you make no profit).

There’s a rumor floating around that I’ve made each of those mistakes on multiple occasions. Some people also say I have to be repeatedly reminded about the graph above, lest I slip up and nearly bankrupt the company (again).

But come on, who are you going to believe?

No, in all seriousness, I learned all of these lessons the hard way. If you’re wondering how to price your product or service, you’d be wise to heed my words.
Oh, and a few final points before we move on:

•    Needless to say, you should only make promises you can actually fulfill. Anything less is unethical.
•    If people immediately think you’re full of shit upon hearing your promise, then you’re in trouble. In my opinion, this is what marketing is really about: getting people to trust you when you say you can help them. The better you are at it, the more money you’ll make.
•    In the above graph, “value” refers to how much the customer values what you’re promising them, not your own personal value. For instance, I personally think my guacamole is worth $10,000 a bowl, but none of my friends agree with me, so I’m forced to give it to them for free. Bastards.

Also, I’m skipping a lot of other important topics like price testing, competition, economics, and lots of other variables that affect how to make money blogging, but in my opinion, none of those things are even worth considering until you know the answer to this one simple question:

What can I offer people that’s worth 10X what I charge?
Answer that, and you’ll at least be headed in the right direction.

Webinars Kick Butt

If you’ve been on our email list for long, you know that we do a lot of webinars. Here’s why:
On average, each webinar generates about $60,000 in sales. It’s by far the most profitable thing I do. Nothing else even comes close.
If you’re wondering how on earth we make that much money, part of it is how many people attend. For instance, here’s a webinar where we had over 3,000 people registered to attend:

But that’s only part of it.

The other part is just the skill of doing a really good webinar. If you want to know how we do it, all you have to do is attend one of our webinars to find out. Everything we do is on display, and you can study it, free of charge.

Automated Funnels Are Even Better

You know what works even better than webinars for us?
Use automated funnels to make more money.

Now, before I get into the nitty-gritty details, a word of warning: this is extremely advanced marketing. I don’t even recommend you think about this until you cross $100,000 per year in revenue.

But here’s the idea:

Through the magic of technology, we have sales happening every minute of every day. We can automate who gets discounts at what times, as well as when those discounts expire.
We can also chain together promotions. If you don’t respond to a $2000 offer, we might follow up with a $497 offer, which now seems cheap by comparison.

Oh, and did I mention we are tracking your every move?
For instance, you’re reading a post about how to make money blogging. If you’re a subscriber, what do you think the odds are that you’ll receive an email from us sometime soon offering you a product about how to make money blogging?

Hmm. Pretty good, I think.

And just to be clear, this is all automated. I’m not doing anything. No one is.
The computer is following rules we set up in advance, and it’s following them 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
Welcome to the future of marketing.

Your Email List Is More Important Than Anything Else

Okay, enough flashy technology. Let’s get back to foundational principles.
In analytics, there is a principle called “the one metric that matters” (OMTM). The idea is that you find a single number that accurately predicts the success or failure of your project.
In the case of blogging, that number is the size of your email list. (Not RSS, mind you — it’s dying a slow but certain death.) In my experience, your email list is the most accurate predictor of how much money you’ll make.

Here at Smart Blogger, we strive for one dollar per subscriber per month in sales, and I think that’s a good place to start when you’re a beginner too. In other words, an email list of 1,000 subscribers should result in at least $1,000 per month in sales, 10,000 subscribers would result in $10,000 per month in sales, and so on.
The more subscribers you get, the more money you make. Granted, your relationship with your subscribers and the quality of your products or services and dozens of other factors still matter, but to drive revenue, focus on email list growth. To make money blogging, it’s absolutely essential.

Start Selling from Day One

How long should you wait before you begin selling? 1,000 subscribers? 10,000 subscribers? More?
Nope. Start selling from day one. Here’s why:
Motivation.

If you’re not making any money from your blog, it’s hard to stay motivated to continue. The opposite is also true. For instance, how do you think I feel when I see this number pop up on my dashboard every day?

I remember the first morning I woke to discover I’d made $100 overnight. It felt… magical. It also gave me the motivation to do the work necessary to make sure that happened every night.

It’ll be the same for you. When you have money being deposited into your account every day, it’s a whole lot easier to keep yourself motivated.

It will also give you the funds you need to build a team around you. You can hire an assistant, a tech person, a billing person. The faster you get rid of stuff you suck at doing, the faster you will grow.

Now, a caveat: don’t turn your blog into a gigantic sales pitch. Nobody likes that. You should, however, be offering something your audience wants and needs. Don’t push them on it, but do make it available, and do remind them from time to time that they can purchase it.

Tips about blogging: secret about Making More Money with Your Blog in 2018

Blogging has become an integral part of marketing and a very infamous way of earning. Who doesn’t like sitting at home and working as and when they please? Well, as nice and cosy as it seems, you just don’t get paid for having a blog. A considerable amount of work and time is needed in order to bring your blog to a payable position. Get the entrepreneur out and let the blogger take a back seat for a while.

Advertising spaces:

One of the most basic approaches to making money online is advertising. The more the movement as much it attracts crowd and you are probable of getting advertising organizations. No one invests on advertising with someone with a low following. If this method works out well for you can also advertise your own products and ideas. Considering the fact that you have more options to profit, the advertising space can be put to use for self-publicity reasons too. It’s proven that marketing your own products earns a better profit than selling advertisements. If you want to cut yourself some slack on taxes, you can also use calculators for small businesses.

Email Subscriptions:

With so many blogs to compete with and create a rock bottom for your blogging business, it’s very important for you to be able to gain trust. You start with setting up a blog, focus on content that creates traffic or attracts crowd and give email subscriptions for free. This creates a niche for you.




Know what people want:

This is one of the most important aspects. You must know what you want to write about and is it something that’s getting you good traffic. Creating a niche is an important part of being able to earn through blogging. The more the traffic at your blog, the more crowd it attracts and other dimensions come into action.

Affiliate marketing:

Instead of waiting for your product to advertise you can take up other products and do affiliate marketing, where you can get a good commission without having to invest anything. The commission can go up to 50% and more and is very worthwhile.

everse Sales Funnel:

It’s a tried and trusted marketing strategy. Instead of starting with a cheaper product, start selling the more expensive and then unfold your sleeves, giving away the cheaper ones later. Sales funnels are currently being used by many of these top bloggers who are converting their regular site readers into high-value leads and sales.

Membership Sites:

This can actually help you increase traffic at your site. If you offer email subscriptions, download options or providing free content. After a couple of times you can charge them for customized content, exclusive for the person who ordered. This might not hit it at the begging but is an amazing idea as everyone needs academic articles, essays etc.



Freelancing:

If you think that you cannot get through with the above mentioned steps, go for freelancing. Almost every MNC or online merchandise store has a blogging section in their websites and are always on a lookout for writers, content developers and advertisers. Grab the chance and sit at home making money.

f you ever wanted to make money with a website or blog of your own, these are just a few of the most effective ways for you to get started. Google Adsense and affiliate marketing are two of the most effective forms of revenue generation, as they don’t require any upfront costs or have the need to hold inventory of process orders for your customers and site visitors.











Blogger tips .
Secretes  about blogging.
It’s simple – if you want to be a successful blogger you need to run your blog on a successful platform.

Let me give you an analogy – if you wanted to open a successful restaurant, would you use ingredients you could find for free? Of course not because who knows what you kind of ingredients you would be getting at no cost. You would start with the best ingredients you could afford.

Lucky for you – it doesn’t cost much to get started blogging (in other words, it’s the cheapest business you’ll ever start). You can get a good quality restaurant up and be running without breaking the bank. Plus if you decide you don’t want to be a chef, you get a 100% money back guarantee. Not bad!

Where to get started

Gurusaine and wordpress is the #1 blogging software in the world. If you want to start a WordPress blog for cheap, going with Bluehost to run your blog is the answer.

I’ve used Bluehost to start three companies (including this website). In fact, the first time I used them was in 2005.

You can start your blog with Bluehost for as low as $2.95 a month (a discounted rate I personally negotiated and that is available only through my link on. Plus they give you a free domain name if you go with the 12-month hosting plan (that’s a $15 value).

The best investment you can make is signing up for the 12-month hosting plan through Bluehost. You save money by signing up for at least 12 months.

If you change your mind later, you can get a refund at any time. In six months if you decide to get a refund (you won’t because you’ll enjoy blogging so much), you can get a partial refund for your unused time.

Why pay for hosting?

You can find free blogging services like Blogger where you could start a blog. I already mentioned how that would be like using free ingredients to cook with and start a restaurant.
Here’s what’s important – if you ever want to:
•    make money off your blog
•    make money off your freelancing
•    build a successful business
•    have a professional looking website that attracts visitors and customers
you have to pay for hosting.

The reason is simple – customization and flexibility. Free blogging services like Blogger don’t allow you to add all of the features available with paid hosting. Such as:
•    shopping carts
•    advertising
•    speed enhancements to improve the user experience
•    free add-ons to make your site look better
•    access to thousands of free WordPress gurusaine plugins (custom functions and features so that each blogger can tailor their site to their specific needs)

I’ve been building online businesses and e-commerce websites since 2000. I would never in my life start a new website with a “free” blogging or “free” website platform. If you do, within months your website is going to start growing, and you’re going to have to switch to a paid platform anyway. You will have thrown away all that time (and lost money in the process).

I’ll give you another analogy. With free hosting, it’s like renting an apartment that has steel walls. You can’t use a hammer and nails to hang pictures, install shelves, put up wallpaper or hang a TV mount.

With paid hosting, your apartment is like a modular office space you can customize however you want. You can move the walls around, put nails in to hang pictures everywhere you want, install shelves, mount five TVs around the place, etc. Heck, you can even cut a hole in the wall and stick in a new window if you want.
You need to be able to customize your site if you want to make money.

For example, if you want to make money from advertising, advertisers prefer professional looking websites. A professional looking website is much harder to get with the free blogging services, which is just one more reason to go with a hosting platform like Bluehost.

Why Use Bluehost?

Here is why I trust and recommend Bluehost to new bloggers:
•    Amazing 24×7 support via phone, e-mail, or chat. If you have questions on getting started or setup, you can get help quickly and easily
•    It’s easy to get started. My 15-minute tutorial walks you through step-by-step how to get started blogging. It really is that easy to start a WordPress blog.
•    FREE blog domain – Bluehost will give you a domain name for free such as www.MyAwesomeBlog.com
•    100% Money Back Guarantee – Bluehost has a 30-day money back guarantee
•    FREE WordPress setup. WordPress is the blogging software used by the majority of bloggers. Bluehost includes an easy setup for adding WordPress.
•    Reliability – Bluehost websites are up 99.9% of the time. Reliability is important because if your blog is down, you don’t make any money! I lost over $5,000 in one day before when GoDaddy was hacked and my website was unavailable.
•    Self-hosting. If your goal is to make money from your blog you have to have a self-hosted blog. Self-hosting just means you are paying to host the blog yourself using a service, as opposed to using a free service that hosts it for you.
•    You’ll look professional – Free blogs like Blogger, Tumblr, or WordPress.com limit you in various ways and appear less professional than self-hosted blogs.
•    It’s cheap! Price matters. And when you have quality and price, it’s a win-win for you. Bluehost starts at just $2.95 per month (a discounted rate available through my link) which is less than a cup of coffee!
When you are ready to get started. There are a lot of blog hosting companies you might come across. As someone who has been in the online business since 2000 and has started three successful companies using Bluehost, invest in yourself and check them out.

Naming your blog

What if you can’t think of a name for your blog?
One challenge of getting started blogging has nothing to do with writing or setting up the blog. It’s figuring out what to name your blog!
You might think all the good names are taken! It just takes time to find the right one for you.
Even if you can’t think of one yet, you can get your blog setup and finish up the name later. I’ve worked on a lot of websites where we had an idea (our adoption website) and started developing it, only to settle on a name weeks later (NRFA.org).
If you’re stuck on picking a name check out the book
Action Items
1.    Sign up for a blog host (Bluehost is the one I recommend) and get WordPress or gurusaine installed. You can follow my step-by-step instructions.
2.    Start thinking about a name for your blog.

News

Nollywood star actor, Jim Iyke, has revealed the woman he had his best relationship with.

The actor has been linked with several women but in a chat with Punch, the actor revealed that his relationship with the love of his life never made it to the pages of the newspaper.

Iyke said the best woman he ever had was not Nigerian but from Barbados.
He said that although they were in love with each other, the relationship ended because the lady wanted marriage when he was not ready to settle down.
Iyke said, “Compatibility and love are not enough to tie the knot. I have been in love before and the truth is that one of my best relationships never made it to the pages of the newspaper.

“She was a girl from Barbados, she was a very special girl and we were together for one and a half years but I actually lost her. There was something she wanted me to do but I could not at that point in my life because I was a little bit too crazy, hung up on fame and indecisive about life.

“She decided to make a decision for both of us by insisting I put a ring on her fingers. She wanted me to make that move or move on so that I didn ’t block the space for another man because I wasn’t ready.
“She moved on because she was that strong even though she suffered the consequence of not being with me for a while. By the time I realised that she was the love of my life and started backtracking, a more discerning man had taken over; that was what happened.

“By the time I got back, I realised she had another man and even though I wanted to find a backdoor into her heart , I was shocked to realise that the guy is a sharpshooter because she was already pregnant for him.i

Top 10 Private Universities in Nigeria: Old Ranking
Between 1948 and 1999, universities in Nigeria were owned and managed by only the government (Federal and States).  But in 1999, Chief (Dr.) Gabriel Osawaru Igbinedion, an Edo philanthropist and influential businessman, took a bold step to establish the first private university known as Igbinedion University at Okada in Edo State.
I was one of those who wondered back then, whether the management of private universities could be sustained in Nigeria.  But commendably, this bold step of Chief Igbinedion has opened an avalanche for more private universities since then; and we now have up to 50 of such operating in different parts of the country.
Let us now discuss the top 10 or best 10 of the private universities in Nigeria, which have been ranked on academic standards, facilities, locations, cost etc, by Webometrics, ThatScholar and other sources.

    Covenant University

Covenant University which is located at Ota in Ogun State, and which was licensed by the Federal Government of Nigeria in 2002, is ranked to be the best private University in Nigeria.  It is said to be built on solid moral foundation as set by its Founder/Chancellor, Dr. David O. Oyedepo.  This university’s fees per session is N432,000.00.
Next in ranking is Babcock University in Ilisan Remo in Ogun State.  This university which charges N620,000.00 as fees per session, is very innovative, and has continued to introduce effective policies which have constantly improved the standards of the institution and its students.
Joseph Ayo Babalola University was established by the Christ Apostolic Church Worldwide in 2004 in Ikeji-Arakeji. This university is reputed to have pioneered the trend for entrepreneurship education in Nigeria, and as a result of its success in doing so, the National Universities Commission has made it mandatory for entrepreneurship to be included in general studies  in the various degree programmes of all universities in Nigeria.  Its fee is about N436,000.00 per session.
The church-owned Bowen University in Iwo, is the fourth best private university in Nigeria.  Equipped with many qualified lecturers, this university runs many under-graduate programmes and a post-graduate school.  Its school fees is about N750,000.00 per session.
Fifth in the ranking of private universities in Nigeria, is Redeemer’s University which is temporarily located at the Redemption Camp, Km. 46 Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Ogun State.  This university is built by the Redeemed Christian Church of God, and its current temporary location makes it attractive.

Igbinedion University located in Okada, Edo State, which is the pioneer private university in Nigeria, is the 6th best private university in the country. This university is known to be very good in academic output.  It was the first private university in the country to produce medical doctors. And more than that, one its students, Mr Sunday Damilola Olawuyi, in 2006, obtained a First Class Honours qualification in the Nigerian Bar examinations, thereby making Igbinedion university the only private university in Nigeria to have produced a first class student in the Nigerian Bar Examinations.  Its school fees is about N643,000.00 per session.
Ajayi Crowther University, Ibadan, established by the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) in 2005 and Bells University of Technology, Ota, Ogun State established also in 2005, are the 7th and 8th best private universities respectively in Nigeria.  While Ajayi Crowther University boasts of a Full Accreditation status for all the courses offered across its three faculties: Humanities, Social and Management Sciences and Natural Sciences, Bells University of Technology prides itself as Nigeria’s foremost private University of Technology in its ability to create new ways of thinking.
The 9th best private university in Nigeria is Afe Babalola University located at Ado-Ekiti  in Ekiti State.  This is the first and only university in Nigeria to have commenced academic activities on its permanent site with all the facilities in place within 8 months.  It is also reputed to be a university that has entrepreneurship and language centres which all students are required to pass through during their period of study to enable them become job creators instead of job seekers, at the end of their programmes.
Finally, Critas University, Amorji-Nike, Enugu State which is owned by the Catholic Church, and which was opened in 2005, is the 10th best private university in Nigeria.  Caritas University strives to revive the age-long successful tradition of Catholic education in Nigeria, and its principal objective is to become the best centre of learning, teaching and research.

Receiving money that has been sent to Nigeria from other country like USA, CANADA or any other European country is  more easier than to send money from Nigeria to other country, this because almost all commercial Nigeria banks are under the inbound money transfer services guideline as provided by Central Bank of Nigeria.
Under this inbound money transfer policy, a person living outside Nigeria can send money to an individual in Nigeria but the reverse is not the case for those living in Nigeria
The  Outbound money transfer regulation by CBN came up as a result of the negative perception about Nigeria being a country for money laundering and others fraudulent activities and this has badly affected. Also Nigerians who wish to send money to their family members, relatives, friends, make payment for conference registration and those who are into the business of importation of goods and service from other countries continue to find it difficult.
