Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and networking with friends helped my blog most.
How many facebook groups and forums do you belong to, and why?
There are lot of Facebook groups and forums I joined for the purpose of learning new things from others and promote my own blog.
What have been your greatest challenges online?
The biggest challange was internet connection at our side. It was really hard to run your own business as a blogger from the internet for a lot of reasons.
You do not have a boss to push you, nor do you have a workers’ team or set goals to hit.
While this sounds interesting and it is, it can also be dangerous for you to not get as much done as you need, or you can even spread yourself too thin with too much going-on. These are some things you need to be careful about that.
Do you think it is possible to earn full time income as a blogger?
Yeah it’s possible for sure. I’ve been able to increase my earning and business through blogging. And you can too.
You can easily make money from your own blog by selling direct Advertising, Google Adsense Ads, Selling Affiliate Products, Paid posts, Sponsored posts, or you can write for others as a freelancer!
How do you earn money with your blog? How much do you earn monthly?
My first and best way to monetize my blog is affiliate marketing. I do promote good affiliate products that are useful for my blog readers.
I’ve created a Free WordPress Blog Installation Service page to help other bloggers and get affiliate commission. I also monetize blog with – Sponsored Posts, Direct Ad Sales.
Have you ever been featured on a top blog either as a guest
blogger or as one in the limelight?
Yes, I’ve been featured on few other blogs too! 🙂
What are your greatest hopes concerning the future of blogging?
Blogging holds immense potential as every blogger has something helpful and unique to share.
The future of blogging becomes brighter and much better as more & more people get access to the Internet world!
What is the secret of your success, expressed in one word?
What is your advice for other bloggers?
Read more and more other blog posts then write for your blog. Do regular comments on other blogs.
Connect with influencers by being helpful and find a good, trust-worthy mentor and build a strong relation with fellow bloggers.
Do Research your topic before writing, invest some money on your blog, grow your expertise and never stop learning from others.
You should do respect for your blog and your fellow bloggers, do not just publish content for few bucks and don’t relay on Adsense, promote good Affiliate products.
Do not limit yourself! Expand your audience with making videos, podcasts, awesome presentations, interviews, etc. Don’t worry about getting it done perfectly – just do it and always learn from your mistakes!
Wishing every new and old blogger the very best in your blogging life.
