About Harsh Agrawal (That’s me) 😀
I am the mind behind ShoutMeLoud.
I may use big words at times, but I’m a really simple guy who loves to simplify complex stuff.
I completed my primary education at Laxman Public School in 2004 and received my degree in Engineering from Sharda University in 2008. Prior to becoming a professional blogger, I worked with Convergys in India. One of the turning points in my life was turning down a job offer from Accenture in pursuit of my own journey as a professional blogger.
I started blogging out of my passions for learning & sharing. I have been a writer since childhood when I started writing diaries like everybody else. In 2006, I got to know about blogs & it took me about two years from then to start my first blog.
I started on the BlogSpot platform & within two months I moved to WordPress.
I found blogging to be a great medium for sharing my favorite things with the world. Initially, I started writing random stuff, but later on I discovered how to make money blogging. I discovered “The Way” to become my own boss through the power of the internet. This was when I started sharing those things that worked for me.
That’s how ShoutMeLoud was born.
Blogging has given me so much more than money. It’s given me a sense of freedom that I didn’t know was possible. I currently live a “free” lifestyle where I travel around the world and blog from anywhere & everywhere (a.k.a. digital nomad).
I used to be an introvert, but now I speak in front of hundreds of people at events & seminars.
This blog even made me worthy to receive an award from my college.
I’m sure you know how tough it is to get something from college once you have graduated. Getting the “Entrepreneurship Award” was one of the best things that has ever happened to me.
When I’m not on my computer, I love traveling & adventure sports. Don’t just take my word for it as this is digital world and I can show you a video.
Yah! I also get goosebumps whenever I watch this video again.
So far, I have done skydiving, scuba diving, bungee jumping & now I’m looking forward to another jump soon.
But to keep myself sane in this busy life, I love to meditate & read (when I’m not falling through the sky).
So yeah, that’s all about me. I’ll leave you with this moment of relative seriousness:
When I first started ShoutMeLoud, I had no idea how it was going to be. It was one of those things that I did but couldn’t explain why. I just did it because I loved it! I guess this is how the passion of a young heart can fuel an award-winning blog with an Alexa rank of 376 in India and 2709 globally!
You can read more about my ShoutMeLoud journey in the following article:
I also invite you to watch this video to learn more about how ShoutMeLoud can change your online journey and lead you into a destiny of success:
Here at ShoutMeLoud, I share everything about how to turn a blog into a business & make a living out of it. I believe life is too short to live in fear & live somebody else’s life.
I also love simplicity & transparency. As a part of our transparent culture here at SML, almost every month I share my blogging progress report.
Along with ShoutMeLoud, I have a few more blogs & services which I have started in the last 8 years. I often rant & share about my successes & failures on Facebook.
I manage all my blogs under the parent brand “ShoutDreams”. (Interesting name? Ehh..)
