In today’s time snap one of the most popular career choices is blogging. Blogging in Nepal is growing at a rapid pace. Many newbies are engaging in this sector for generating some passive income in Nepal.
So, in this article, I gonna share with you some fun facts, bitter truth, and expectations vs the reality of this blogging sector of Nepal.
Blogging in Nepal is not still considered a full-time job. In fact, anything that we do to earn money online is always a secondary or a part-time job. In Nepal, many people are also engaged with earning methods like youtube, affiliate marketing, Social media, and many more.
Now let’s began with some fun facts about Blogging.
Some Facts About Blogging in Nepal
#1 Fact – Working from home is not accepted culturally
Working from home is not considered a full-time job in Nepal. it is only considered as a part-time job for earning some passive income from the internet. Moreover, the age group between 16 to 28 are mainly interested in this sector. But working from home in this sector is not accepted as a full-time job.
The main reason this culture is not considered a full-time job is the internet. Internet facility is not quite developed in the context of Nepal. From the total population of Nepal, around 80 to 85 percent of people live in rural areas where the internet is not used widely so it is impossible to make blogging a full-time job and work from home in Nepal.
#2 Fact – Explaining blogging is harder
I have been blogging for the last 4 years, probably more than 100 times people asked me what do you do for a living.
When I say I am a blogger then people are confused and ask “what is this blogging? is it a company ”
Moreover, when I explain to them they can’t understand the concept behind blogging, they reply with ” earning money from online is not easy”
So it is harder to explain to people what I am doing.
All of this situation is generated by the education system of Nepal. Nepali Education is only focused on the textbook other than practical knowledge.
Now lets, move forward to Some shocking facts about blogging.

Blogging in Nepal Bitter Truth
Blogging is Misunderstood in Nepal, I have noticed many mistakes here.
Some of them are
- In the Nepali blogging world, men are currently more involved.
- Females begin blogging, but only a small percentage of them stick with it.
- The technology niche is always present in Nepali blogs.
- The lack of funding and direction in the Nepali blogosphere is a major issue.
- The most popular bloggers are between the ages of 16 and 25.
Everyone thinks that creating a blog is free but without any investment, you can’t imagine getting success in blogging. Well, writing content doesn’t require any investment but you need to invest in hosting, theme, social media marketing tools, email marketing tools. the good news is that you can start a blog with an investment of $100 to $200 ( Npr 10,000 to 20,000).
When it comes to bog, expectation, and reality turn into two sides of a coin. which are totally different.
Blogging is a core of marketing. so anyone with simple content writing skills can start bogging.
