My Blogging Journey : From Start

First three months of blogging:

I started blogging just to try new things to make money online. In September of 2013 I started my first blog on the BlogSpot platform which was related to news. I was sharing worldwide news, events and author views. I got a lot of appreciation on my blog from people around the globe. I bought a domain and hosting from Hostgator and migrated my blogspot blog to WordPress.

Selecting a domain name + Hosting

By the first four months I understood the importance of branding in online world. I bought domain and hosting from Hostgator because of their best service.

How my niche changed?

In the beginning on eAskme, I was writing about only tech stuff that you may have seen on other blogs also, but later I started writing about my own experiences, Blogging, Wordpress, money making tips and designing tips. As I started writing everything that I have learn from my own experience, people started liking my blog.

My First Income:

As I mentioned, I started blogging just to try new things. I had no idea how to make money with adsense ow what is SEO. I was just a hobby blogger. After some time I have learned about AdSense  one of the most popular contextual ad network. I read a lot of blogs about SEO and experimenting everything. I still remember how I earned my first $20 from chitika. That was the very first online income i had received; after that I started using adsense and it turned me to make $500 in very first month.

Hobby blogger to Professional blogging:

Back in June of 2013, I quit full time job and started working as a professional blogger. It was not an easy decision for me as the hardest thing was to convince my family. But I made my decision and started working for what I liked to do. I started making good money to fulfill my daily needs and to make some good investment. I have created my very own blogging business plan and I decided to take eAskme to the next level.

Partnership with another Blogger:

Around January of 2014, I partnered with a Mohali-based blogger to take our blogging journey to next level, but things things didn’t come up in good way so I moved back to my own blogging goals. So I always suggest you to avoid partnership as it hardly lasts.

My Venture:

Till now my vision and dream and vision is to make blogging a full time career choice and most popular online business in India. I have big dreams about my blogs and I will surely touch them with my dedication and love of my readers.

Current Blog Network:

I am currently managing many blogs on my network. It is not an easy task to work on multiple blogs and maintain a strong social media presence these days. You need to establish a team of professional who can work on all blogs with complete dedication. What I look in a person before hiring is that he should do blogging for passion not just for money.

I divide work in my team and set target for them to achieve. I usually work on promoting 3-4 blogs at a time. This includes writing social media presence, commenting, guest posts etc.

At this moment we have following blogs in our network:

eAskme, iOS Crunch, WikiHealthBlog,are few of my latest examples.

Future Plans:

It is the dream of every company to grow as big as it can be and cover maximum market share. But the biggest problem is to find the best team. Your team determines the future of your online company or business. Currently I am setting up plan for my online business.

Earning from Blogging:

"Earning" this word is the most interesting part of life of a professional blogger. If I never quit my job then may be earning only $5000-$10,000 per year. But with blogging and with my other online activities, I am making more than $50K every year, which is a good reason to quit my job. The very best thing I like about blogging is that I am my own boss now. I work whenever I want and work on what I love to do. I am sharing my story so you should take blogging seriously and make your decision.
