What Do You Think Of Nigerian Newspaper Sites?

I think those guys are trying. But for me thats only for backends (server based programming). I mean I am not too impress. I expect it should get better by the day.

They load relatively fast, colour combination ok but that should not be all. I mean there are alot of 3rd party and free plugins everywhere. For instance going to a different site altogether for a site's forum, chat, survey, etc most times these are free services, so you see links everwhere. And imagine times font for content instead of something like Tahoma. What about images?

Please in 2008, lets role out the best. Cheers!

Maybe their correspondents are addicted to these "slangs". This is a new year, I hope they will over haul their strategies. The problem is that there is no competition, despite their numbers.

I hope something will happen in the system that will cause competition and allow is again to see investigative journalism. Thanks to Dele Giwa and Co of blessed memory.

@ Dis Guy:

Yes you are right. In most cases its always an added service separate from the main page. For updating a site, some well developed news scripts allow you to simply post the article to the appropriate section and it will reflect immediately, so the issue of waiting through the next day to report a breaking news will not arise.

They are alrite. But they need to be updated more often. Eg. Thisday: I'm sick of seeing the same old Thisday music festival pictures.

I must congratulate you for the steps so far. They are commendable. But as my mentor will always say "the race for perfection has no finished line", so there is always room for improvement.

I my opinion, I will recommend:

- You define what your blog is going to be for. This decision will guide you all the way and will determine what you will be posting. Hence your target audience.

- You try other styles of skin for the blog, since its blogger and compare them. In order to have the best,

- You may even consider a blog with strickly your name. In that case you will need to pay for hosting and a domain name (something within N5000 should take care of that).

- If you intend intend making serious income with your Adsense, remember it will take some time and effort you start making reasonable income. But you have to tailor how you display your ads, your posts, keywords, site traffic, etc.

- Learn more on adsense, play by the rule, review your progress, make adjustments,

I hope this will help.
