Q. Please share about yourself and your story to enter in blogging?
Ans: Blogging was something I started as a way to pass the time and see if it was a better alternative to affiliate marketing using paid alternatives.
I was tired of paying for every conversion and PPC costs were getting too high as more and more competitors started to jump on the bandwagon.
I started off by creating micro niche sites and pumping them full of links (this was in the days before Google decided to hit us will a million and one updates.) It paid me a few dollars every month but when you start adding that up across multiple sites, you have a winner on your hands.
I have blogged in the personal development space.
I've created men's sites, and I've even gotten pretty lucrative ghost writing deals because people like my conversational style and need help building their own unique voice.
More recently, I've started a marketing blog where I focus om helping my fellow entrepreneurs solve challenges they face when trying to break into crowded markets. The emphasis is on unconventional practices rather that best practices. It's been a learning experience for me and Im still learning, but I seem to only get better with practice Both wins, losses, and everything in between
Q. Can blogging really change someone`s life?
Ans: Blogging is what you make of it. It's just like asking can starting your own business change your life? Yes, of course it can but you have to put in the time, energy, and upfront investment to make it work for you.
You can't just jump in and start blogging about whatever comes to your mind. There should be a purpose to the madness. If you're passionate about wine then write about wine. If you love shoes then write about shoes. The more your passion comes through in what you do the more results you'll see from blogging each and every day.
Ans: My favorite internet marketing tools.
I use a lot of them in my arsenal and my daily workflow, but my favorite ones are.
Skype (not actually for internet marketing, but indispensable)
Moz open Site Explorer
I can keep going but, these are at the top of the list.

Q. What is your daily schedule? And how do you maintain your tasks?
Ans: My daily schedule is pretty hectic. I'm currently doing a one-year medical mission (I went to school and got a pharmacy degree and yes, it's free work) so I wake up at about six thirty and get ready for work by eight.
By three o'clock I finish with my mission and I jump on my computer.
I usually check on my blog to make sure everything is running smoothly, then I get a bead on what's going on through my social media profiles.
Then I work in 25-minute bursts called pomodoro's I break for five minutes then get back to work. I usually do that until about 8 or 9PM then I shut off my computer and interact with the world around me.
Q. Which are your favorite blogs?
Ans: I don't really have favorite blogs because I like to visit many blogs and keep leanring new things and seeing new perspectives. If I just had one favorite blog then I would be missing out on the wealth of diversity available on the internet.
Twitter, Medium, Reddit, StumbleUpon.
I know these aren't traditional blogs, but they're almost the same thing to me. It's where people congregate,interact, and share information. What else is a blog really?
Q. How much time do you spend on social media promotion and SEO of your blog?
Ans: Social media 15 minutes a day three to four days a week. If you don't consciously ration your time like that, you're going to wind up losing huge chunks of your day.
I have a team that takes much of the burden off of me and I'm grateful for that.
Q. How much time do you spend for blogging daily?
Ans: Actually putting words on paper? just a few minutes. Researching and getting my thoughts organized before putting the thoughts on paper? about 1-2 hours.
It's about reaching out to people who are in a good position to contribute, it's about adding value in your own unique way, and it's doing the best damn job you can every time.
Q. Finally, I would love to have your message for my readers and any suggestions for newbies?
Ans: If you want to start a blog on whatever topic, start with a very deliberate goal in mind. If you want to use blogging to attract new clients for your business then optimize your blog just for that.
Do your research, move around on social media, forums, and check out your competitors sites to understand what's working and what you can truly add to the conversation.
