32 Nigerian Inspirational/Personal Development Blogs to Follow in 2016

Nigeria Personal development blogs, Nigeria  Christian blogs, Nigeria Inspirational blogs

Last year I did 21 Nigerian personal development/inspirational blog list and it returned a lot of traffic from Google search.

So I have decided to do a list of Nigerian personal development bloggers every year.

It was a hectic search. I couldn't come up with 10 consistent bloggers that are primarily focused on personal development (also known as self help).

It was the same last year, so I had to do a combination with inspirational and Christian Blogs.

One of the reason why I have started this yearly list post is to discover more blogs in this niche, celebrate them and also encourage consistency.

This may not be a perfect list. If there's any blog I missed out, please let me know by commenting below this post.

Seasoned Life Journal's pick of Nigerian Inspirational/Self Help Bloggers in 2016

You can click on the names of the each individual blogs to be directed to their landing page.

The list is ordered randomly. There are no particular preferences.

However, all mentioned blogs have their unique  style with a common goal.
