Bloggers In Ghana have been the issue for discussion on several entertainment platforms for several reasons.
While some praise them for their good works others also lash them for churning out negative stories.
Gone are the days when the traditional media was the go-to platform for stakeholders to know what's happening in the entertainment industry.
Now, the narrative has changed as bloggers are now at the helm of affairs when it comes to content creation and real-time happenings.
Most people are of the view that it doesn't take much to be a blogger. Well, renowned Ghanaian blogger, OdarteyGH reacted to that assertion on the Black Magic show on Pluck Radio hosted by Eugene Osei, Smokey and Ohemaa Ekua.
The topic for discussion for the day was “blogging and the role of bloggers in the entertainment industry.”
The host of the show Eugene Osei asked OdarteyGH how serious the blogging profession is and if it paying off.
According to the OdarteyGH, ” Blogging is serious business as a matter of fact it has come to stay and it is the go-to media platform for Ghanaians and the world at large now.
This shows how blogging has evolved and is now a serious business where individuals earn a living out of it”
OdarteyGH, however, lamented how some stakeholders treat bloggers as if they are uneducated and irrelevant in the industry.
Meanwhile, most professional bloggers are well educated and apply the journalistic ethics with their news reportage and real-time updates.
“Stakeholders must respect the bloggers and the profession, bloggers play a huge role in projecting the industry hence what is due as must be given and not treated as beggars or individuals chasing after money”
He however, called on colleague bloggers to put value on their brands since that will go a long way to bring some respect to the blogging profession in Ghana and the world at large.
