By now you must have already heard or known about blogging which is really gaining grounds with teens and youths all over the world such that even adults are not left out.
In case, you don’t however know about blogging, a blog being simply put is a type of website which is used to update the users or visitors or viewers of the website with quality information which are shared serially and on a time based basis. A blogger is someone who does the updating, he or she spends his or time writing prolifically in order to satisfy the hunger of his or visitors or users or in some cases subscribers.
As interesting as a blog sounds it is however quite stressful and time consuming to update a blog especially when the blog’s niche – the category the blog belongs to – is a broad one and this where Ghost blogging comes in to play.

What is Ghost Blogging?
Ghost Blogging is a unique way of blogging that requires no financial investment of any kind by the blogger, rather all it takes is commitment and good writing skills. While it is stressful to many, personally I don’t see it that way.
I’ve been Ghost blogging for quite a while now and I must say while the pay and the returns are not like that of being one’s own boss, it is however still quite manageable and with lots of dedication you can make a steady income from it.
There are many examples of Ghost Bloggers who are actually enjoying the life of a side blogger. A very good example is Darren Rouse who ghost blogs on Pro-blogger with his average pay being quite a lot :D
Ghost blogging for me has been really fun. You get to make money instantly and you do that under an hour or so depending on how creative and in some cases prolific you are.

How to Ghost Blog
Simply visit blogs with openings for guest writers and freelance writers
some of these sites are wepaywriters.com (they pay N500 per article, cool right), problogger.com and the likes

Pros of Ghost Blogging
Ah yes ghost blogging has its benefits ive taken time to list only few

  1. You get free hours to yourself
  2. You decide your workspace
  3. No limits to how you earn
  4. withdrawal is most times almost instant :)

Cons of Ghost Blogging
Sadly everything with an advantage comes with disadvantages as well
  1. You're not your own boss, since you write for others
  2. Not advisable for new writers as stress in getting articles may be too much

Final Words and Conclusion
Ghost blogging or writing is not for everyone, seriously take a deep breath ask yourself, can i work for others and generate unique ideas, if yes, you are good to go
