Who has been your best customer till date?
Your articles have been featured in top blogs like problogger, DailyBlogTips, SmartPassiveIncome, JohnChow.com, MaxBlogPress.com and ZacJohnson.com. What has been your secret of being accepted to publish on those blogs?
I’m not sure if I can call it a secret, but here’s the process I follow for getting published on any blog:
• I analyze a blog for the most recent blog posts/guest posts, especially the successful ones
• I pitch something similar but unique to the blog owner; in other words, if a very successful guest post on a particular blog is “10 ways to make money blogging,” I can pitch a post titled “10 ways to get more subscribers.” The idea is similar since they are both top 10 posts, but the angle and the tips are different
• I send a pitch to the blogger with my idea explaining how he will benefit from the post
In most cases, the above steps alone will result in my posts getting published on most blogs.
You have been featured in some online magazines. Could you please tell us how it feels like to be featured in those magazines?
It feels great, as usual but it helps me take a look at my journey and motivates me to keep working hard towards reaching my goals.

I still have a long way to go but I’m appreciative of where I am right now.
You have written over 700 articles. Do you ever suffer from writer’s block? How do you get inspirations to write?
I don’t believe in writer’s block but it’s easier to lose motivation sometimes; in situations like these, I remind myself of my goals and keep moving forward as a result.
Does your achievement so far pose any challenge to you?
I’m not sure.
How do you feel being a successful writer?
I won’t say I’m successful where I am right now but it feels great getting feedback from my readers and seeing that I have helped someone.
You set out a goal to write as many guest posts as possible. How far have you been able to achieve this goal?
I embarked on a challenge recently to build a new blog from scratch and I also have a lot of projects on my plate right now so I haven’t really met my personal guest blogging goals.
