I met Marcus Edore, a Linda-Ikeji-Inspired blogger who have been blogging since 2007 and by experience and mistakes he had made, has lots of advice to offer upcoming bloggers. He is a social media marketer as well and did a review of this blog, appreciating what we do here some time ago. 
 Read our chat:

JCB:  Please tell us about yourself?
Marcus Blogger: My name is Edore Marcus, I am a blogger and social media marketer at

JCB:  Can you explain who you are and what inspired your work.
Marcus Blogger: My passion for reading and writing inspired me into the blogging career.

JCB: So what is your blog about?
Marcus Blogger: It’s a blog about entertainment, News, inspiration, fashion, event, gossip and lots more.

JCB: Wow...that’s a lot, what would you say your blog niche is?
Marcus Blogger: It's a news and entertainment niche blog

JCB: Okay, when did you start blogging and what have been your greatest gain from it?
Marcus Blogger: Started blogging since 2007 and my gain from blogging has been the fact that my blog has been a centre point where people especially Nigerians come to get the latest information on fashion, event, general news, inspiration and lots more, apart from the fact that it keeps people informed, blogging has also been a source of income to me.

JCB: Nice, wow such a long time and good to know you are making money.
Marcus Blogger: Yea

JCB: What challenges have you faced as a blogger?
Marcus Blogger: Hmm, so many but will stress on a few, one of the challenges is generating traffic. You know, one thing is to have great passion for blogging, another thing is to get people to visit your blog.

JCB: Yea, what do you think is the main reason why people don’t visit your blog or most blogs generally?
Marcus Blogger: The main reason I was not attracting traffic then was I lacked idea on traffic sources then. I used to copy articles from other sites and post on my blog, until I discovered that people like originality. So if your blog is packed with just copy and paste, visitors won't trust your blog for first-hand information.

JCB: Exactly. Originality is key for SEO
Marcus Blogger: Yes

JCB: So what are your plans for your blog and social media marketing? Anything we should look forward to?
Marcus Blogger: My plans for my blog and social media marketing is to put more effort in staying up to date with the latest information around me and update it on my blog and to make CrownNewsHour Blog go viral leveraging SEO and social media marketing.

JCB: Ok. Apart from social media and blogging, what else do you spend time on?
Marcus Blogger: I spend time also following up with prospects in my affiliate marketing program.

JCB: What is your advice to upcoming bloggers?
Marcus Blogger: My advice to upcoming bloggers is to stay focused with their blogging career. One thing they should know is, if their motive of becoming bloggers is to make money, they should know that making money blogging is not a day’s job and it requires patience and determination.

JCB: Ok. What came to your mind the first time you heard about Jenny Chisom blog?
Marcus Blogger: Mmm...I was like who whoa! Another female blogger has stepped into the game.

JCB: Yea right! (Laughing). So which blogger (s) do you look up to?
Marcus Blogger: I look up to Linda Ikeji.

JCB: Wow, I see that’s why you styled your blog like hers. Where do you see your blog in the next 5 years?
Marcus Blogger: I see my blog amongst the top 10 blogs in Nigeria in the next 5 years.

JCB: Ok, Nice what do you want to say to your fans and upcoming bloggers.
Marcus Blogger: To upcoming bloggers out there, I have two words for them and that is Determination and Patience.

JCB: Thank you for your time Marcus. It was great chatting with you.

Marcus Blogger: You're welcome
