|Interview with Artice Upchurch (Founder of Creative Sol Vibrations) : Journey of a Professional Blogger : easkme|
Ans: It all started out when I discovered a talent to write poetry, while attending Long Beach Job Corps in California. The year was 2000 and I was only 20 years old, with a strong passion to change lives along with my own. Seeing the position that some people were in and attitudes they had made me want to sit down that day and write something motivational. I wrote a few motivational poems and Job Corps staff made me a deal to publish my writings in their weekly school bulletin. This bulletin would be delivered to both boys and girls dorms on Wednesday's, and RA's (Residential Advisors) would read from the bulletin.
Creative Sol Vibrations mission statement:
Q. How the idea to make your own blog came in your mind? How you found the right people to develop it and what big obstacles you faced?
Ans: The idea came after I published my book Cypher Key. After publishing this book, I felt there was more I needed to do with my writing talent. My brother Jamar has been a big help with giving me the platform to start blogging. As mentioned prior, I began blogging on adupchurchbooks.com which is now forwarded to creativesolvibrations.com. I've written several pieces on this software, some I had no idea what happened to them while others were revised and given to creativesolvibrations.com. I've ran into lots of obstacles, enough to make me want give up the whole blogging idea. But I realized something. I realized that I was blogging in order to share my thoughts, ideas, and perceptions with the world to inspire others.
Q. Can blogging really change someone`s life?
Ans: Yes! Blogging can definitely change someone's life, especially after noticing your first couple of visitors. I remember when first starting out, I looked at my stats and said: "Wow! 10 people visited today." Haha!
Ans: I use Hootsuite just about everyday. For the past 2 years I've used Hootsuite's service almost daily in conjunction with Triberr. So, Hootsuite is definitely one of my favorites. Another one of my favorite tools is Google Analytics. Just recently I started using Google Analytics more often, and it is so vast with details and reports. From these reports, I am now able to try different methods with a clearer goal in mind everytime. Let's not forget Bitly, which is the tool that has allowed us make our own custom shortlinks.

Q. What is your daily schedule? And how do you maintain your tasks?
Ans: I wake up at 5am every morning, with the help of my newly born daughter. :)
I maintain my tasks by sticking to routine and love. The simple fact is that I love what I do, and loving what I do is routine.
Q. Blogging have different definition for different person. What is it for you?
Ans: Blogging for me is an opportunity to reach others who may have an interest in my words and ideas. There are also people who are naturally introverts, but their fingers know nothing of this issue. In fact, some people communicate a lot more effectively through written words and this is where blogging comes into play. Blogging has allowed me to get my voice or words heard and meet new friends with similar goals. Through allowing others to guest blog for us at Creative Sol Vibrations, I've met some very wonderful people. I can only see things getting much better in time.
Q. Which are your favorite blogs?
Ans: The sites listed are some of my favorite blogs, due to them adding so much value to my own life: www.ankushchauhan.com, www.richardcassaro.com www.thoughtsonlifeandlove.com, www.inneractivist.com. I'm know there are many more out there that i would also call my favorites, but I've just been so busy, so please forgive me. :)
Ans: Hmm! I spend about 1 hour a day making sure new blog post's have correct keywords and other seo details. This is mandatory before promoting articles, for me. After these requirements are taken care of, then i proceed to promote the articles on social media. Social media promotion can take me anywhere from 1 - 2 hours or more sometimes depending on how many articles were published in that day.
Q. How much time do you spend for blogging daily?
Ans: I don't really blog that much nowadays because I am the webmaster, promoter, marketer and more for our brand, and all of this is time consuming. However, you can find my latest writings, HERE. I'm always promoting our guest writer's articles and researching new strategies, so with all of my titles I'm left with not much time to blog.
Q. Finally, I would love to have your message for my readers and any suggestions for newbies?
Ans: We at Creative Sol Vibrations would like to thank you for your time in reading this interview and hoping you enjoyed it. Our goal is to provide value to our readers and we will stay true to this as we've always have. Due to our brand's nature, we are always seeking out new writers who can make people think and help change the way we perceive things as a humanity. We would like to one day be the leaders in global thought change, because we do realize this is very needed in our world today.
