    After 1826 Days of Blogging All I Can Say “Blogging Is Incredible”

    By in Blogging

    Bluehost hosting

    5 years back on this day (1st dec 2008) I moved a free blog hosted on BlogSpot to a self hosted WordPress blog, and that’s how ShoutMeLoud was born. While I was making this move, the only thing that I knew was I’m moving to a better platform for my blog. Many of you who have read my blogging journey, knows about the inception of ShoutMeLoud, and if you haven’t, today I will be sharing how ShoutMeLoud came into existance, and how accidentally things happened that I never imagined even in my wildest dreams. First of all, today is ShoutMeLoud`s 5th Anniversary and I am happy beyond words would express, as I never imagined how this `One’ blog could make magic happen for me and for many others.

    Inception of ShoutMeLoud: 5Th Anniversary Special

    If you check out the who.is details of ShoutMeLoud, you will know that ShoutMeLoud domain was bought on 30th november 2008, and it was 1st December when a Blog name ShoutMeLoud was live on the internet. When I started blogging 5 years back , I had no idea about making money from a blog and I was blogging because I  enjoyed the writing part, and sharing what I knew . With time, I got a great response from my readers, and from hobby, this name (Blogging) become a profession to me.

    Shouters Be the change After 1826 Days of Blogging All I Can Say Blogging Is Incredible

    Gratitude to everyone who made things happen:

    Today is the day, I want to thank people who made ShoutMeLoud the way you see it right now. I would start by thanking one of my senior from college, Mohit Nanda, the guy who taught me everything about internet at the first place. I would like to thank Ankit for giving me his credit card to buy Web-hosting and that’s how ShoutMeLoud blog came into the picture.  I would also like to thank Rahul Bansal, as he was my inspiration, and I had the pleasure of working with him for a period of 6 months. My heartiest gratitude to Mani karthik, who helped me in the beginning of my blogging career to understand about WordPress SEO and it’s because of him I learned about basics of Search engine optimization.

    I would like to thank @HoneySingh, for his consistent support, motivation and designing the ShoutMeLoud logo. Special thanks to @Akyjoe, @Techim, @siddie @Rajat for being part of this wonderful journey. Thanks to all the current and past member of ShoutDreams network, and those who made ShoutMeLoud happen so far. I would like to extend my gratitude to all those 558 shouters, who guest posted here and become a part of the family. I would also  like to thank you for becoming a part of Shouters community.

    The Journey of ShoutMeLoud : From An idea to a reality

    In 2008, after graduating from college, all I had in my mind was to kill one year of time, so I can join Accenture (Company where I got campus placement). Since I had enough time in hand to report to Accenture, I joined Convergys and worked there for 6 months. While working for Convergys, I started my first blog on BlogSpot and started sharing things I knew.

    Since childhood I was always fascinated with computers but it was only in 2005 that I had my own first computer. My first few years were spent learning about softwares, web apps, hacking, creating Linux servers, and playing counter strike. On the verge of 3rd year, when I was not placed in any company; I was cursing myself for spending countless hours on Internet and not focusing on academics. I thought social-engineering and hacking is completely waste of time, and I should have focused more on academics. After 4 failed campus placement interviews, I finally got a chance to appear @Accenture campus drive, and luckily the interviewer asked me all about Social-engineering and hacking. I wish I could explain in words, how happy I felt after getting selected at Accenture.

    Later on, after completing engineering degree from one of the engineering college of Agra (H.C.S.T), I moved back to New Delhi (Capital city of India), and rented a one small room for myself. That’s the time when I joined Convergys and started getting my first salary. At the age of 22, I was independent, stopped taking any financial aid from my family, and I knew one thing; I’m the master of my life, and I could shape it in any way I wanted.

    That’s the time, when I started blogging on a BlogSpot blog, and within 45 days, I was on Digg social-bookmarking site homepage (Those days Digg homepage means viral traffic to your blog). On a single day, I got more than 18K visits, and I had no idea what 18,ooo visits mattered to any other web masters. Infact, when I started blogging; I had no clue about AdSense or any other ways that bloggers can make money. Later on I learned about affiliate marketing and realized that this is the market that I need to be in. One interesting fact about my journey is; I used to take lots of print-put of blogging stuff which I need to read, and used to read them while travelling from work to home in the office cab. (Those days smartphones were not so popular in India).

    Around April 2009, I left my full-time job @Convergys to try my luck as a professional blogger, and around June sometime, I got the call from Accenture to join them on 6th July. That was the time when I was a bit confused about my future, and terms like Entrepreneurship and Infopreneurship were not so popular in those days. I was baffled about the fact that should I join Accenture or should I continue with my own venture. The good side was, I was making comfortably 40,000 INR ($700) that time from my blog. Thanks to Keshav Gupta (My School friend) for his words ” We work @company so that  we can do something of our own in future, and you are already doing something of your own; so keep calm it and don’t stop“, and with his words, I was kind of sure that blogging is going to be my only profession, and just 5 days after I met with a horrible accident.

    Keep Calm Dont stop now After 1826 Days of Blogging All I Can Say Blogging Is Incredible

    The accident was quite severe, and I had multiple fractures on my left foot (Lisfranc injury). I was hospitalized and on bed rest for 6 months; those 6 months played a major role in my life by making me what I’m today.  While I was on bed rest, I spent most of time learning about Blogging, and practicing it. It was December 2009, when I was allowed to move, and by that time I was comfortably making more than $2000/month from blogging.

    That’s the time when I met “Rahul Bansal” and we decided to work together to fulfill our dreams. From January 2009 to June 2009, we worked together, and I learned a lot from amazing people at @rtCamp. Around August 2010, I moved back to New Delhi, and decided to take ShoutMeLoud to next the level. I opened ShoutDreams as a parent company for all the blogs in my network, and thanks to @Siddie and Akshay khurana for being a part of ShoutMeLoud`s inception. Siddarth was a tech geek and he was one of the first employee (School fall out) whom I hired and invited him to Delhi from Mangalore, and become a part of ShoutDreams network. If you want to know more about Sid, you should check out his article : Being high on Tech to being paid by tech.

    Akyjoe siddie After 1826 Days of Blogging All I Can Say Blogging Is Incredible

    Later on @Akykoe moved out to start his own venture at @TheCreatology (He is a talented WordPress designer and Thesis developer), and that’s the goal I always had for anyone becoming a part of ShoutDreams. If working with ShoutDreams, you are not becoming your own boss; it’s  me who is failing more than you. In between, ShoutMeLoud and I got featured on various magazines, got interviewed by many bloggers, and things changed a lot for me and around me.

    This year (2013) is one of the best year of my blogging career, because first time I ever gave a stage presentation; and later on got an opportunity to speak at Asia’s largest hosting summit.  Now we at the verge of calling “Happy new year” and moving to next year of our life, I’m not sure how things will shape in the future; but I’m confident and looking forward to see and experience the unseen. I have few plans and things which are at execution stage, and it’s all about empowering Shouters. If this is the first time you are visiting ShoutMeLoud Blog, this 2 minutes video will give you an overview and ideology of our blog:

    Things that I learned over the time:

    In the past 5 years, I have learned many new things, and many of my beliefs were broken and I learned life is not so simple, and it will never be a constant joy ride. There will be good days and there will be bad days, what matter is how you deal with them. That’s how life is, and what matter is; how you imagine your life to be. One of my friend suggested me to read “The Secret“, and after reading the book, I suggest you to read it too. It will help you solve problems in a better way and you will live a better life. This book is for anyone who would like to have a better and meaningful life. Here are few things I could share from my 27 years of experience:

    • Have goals in your life, that will help you keep moving forward .
    • You are the creator of your own life, and you can make anything out of it. So dream big, act big and make it big.
    • Be it right or wrong; be the person you are. We all like people who are honest and just honest.
    • Your problems are your own, and they will keep coming. Instead of getting worried about problems, put your energy in getting out of the problems.
    • What ever is happening in your life right now is because of the actions you have taken in the past. What will happen tomorrow is; how you act now.
    • The main key to success is confidence.
    • Find your inner strength, and never let you down. You might not be Mr. or Ms. Perfect, but you are the person that no one can ever be.
    • Never sacrifice your future for your present and find the perfect balance between present and future to live a better life.
    • Never share your problems with anyone, because everyone is busy handling their own problems.
    • Give as much as you could without expecting anything in return.
    • Success is an endless journey, once you on the track; you don’t have to stop ever.
    • Most important: Your blog is your personal space. When you write anything, write it from heart, and you will earn million hearts.

    Thanks Harsh for sharing this story , stories like these keep inspiring me and other people who are trying to make a living using the Internet. I am currently in a similar (or maybe even worse) situation as you were in when you are going to graduate (going to graduate in 6 months time and have a running back which is inhibiting me from sitting in any major placement drives by the college). I have been blogging/web-designing for around 2 years but have started taking it seriously only two months back. There is a lot of peer pressure for getting a 9-to-5 job and “making your future safe” jargon but stories like these act like a pillar of hope and possibilities in this madness

    @Prayag
    Peer-pressue will always be there, because we have been told to go to college > Get a good job > Get married and so on..and this is what we believe in completely. If you look at changing trend of jobs, you would be realize there is a big shift of job fro offline to online, and most of the people who are making big in last 3-4 hours are people who are anywhere related to online industry (Entrepreneur, Blogger, Independent journalist, web-designer) and so on. So keep working on what you doing and also ensure that you don’t ignore your academics, because sometime degrees are useful. And d check out this article, which might help you to do better with your blog: http://www.shoutmeloud.com/blog-like-professional-blogger.html

    That was a great journey so far Harsh. You have been an inspirational figure to me from years, and you know that. Oh about the accident, yes I admit the time you are on bedrest, you get bored, nothing much to do, so the time is crucial, if harnessed properly, one can surely explore new paths. As for myself, I was hit by a truck on 3rd June 2010, had multiple fractures in my left foot and was on bedrest for 4 months. #SamePinch! It was that time I utilised for learning graphic designing, html, wordpress, and even found you and shoutmeloud on the web, which I otherwise had no idea of. Extending my best wishes to you and Shoutmeloud, you still have miles to go before you stop. Keep Rocking

    This is my first comment on SML, even though I’ve been a reader on and off since about an year, and knew about it since much longer.

    Loved to read your blogging success story. Just as Bruce Lee said “I’ve mastered using the NunChaku”, only after 10 years of rigorous practice with them, and could use them as his third arm. Similarly, you blogged for 5 years and now you say, “blogging is incredible”.

    Thanks for sharing your journey Harsh. I just found your blog, and it’s quite impressive. One of the things that I know I need to focus on is consistency. on my own blog I tend to post in spurts, and I know that’s not doing me any good. My goal this year is to post every day for the year and see where it goes from there. Thanks again for the inspiration!!

    Wishing you a great 2014!

    Harsh Agrawal

    @David
    Thanks for your kind words, and regarding consistency, sometime it’s hard to keep updating your blog. If you can’t update daily, then just follow a schedule. Something like morning 7 every alternate day. Take advantage of WordPress post scheduling feature and keep some posts ready in draft, that will help you when you are too busy.
    Wish you a great year ahead, :)

Because I too started out a blog, it might be a slightly silly one if you look at it lol I have not put much effort into it but i write about what I can and I like how it makes me feel, made some nice friends online. Only trouble is I am not techie or comp geek and I have no idea on how to monetize it. So I landed up here, just like that. I like your blog, I love this post and i will be coming back again, subscribing to learn more from you.

    Hi Harsh,

    You have done a great work..!! I appreciate the confidence and determination it took to reach upto this level where you are now.

    I have been running a youtube channel from the past one year now. But the earnings from my channel is nowhere even near to the earnings you have mentioned above at the initial stage of your blogging career. I don’t know what are the things which I should do immediately to boost up career in blogging and I would really appreciate If you could pen down few things I could do at this particular stage. May be you can write down a blog for YouTubers who are really good at creating videos but doesn’t know what to do next and how to do it.

    Thanks and Regards once again.

    I want to use this opportunity to give you million thanks for everything you are doing for helping your fellow bloggers to learn and achieve success in this very tough road. Becoming a problogger is very hard. Thanks for trying to make this easy to us.

    I know there are a lots of probloggers who are full of knowledge and share it with us like: David Rowse, Pat Flynn and many others. But the way you share your knowledge with us is composed with simplicity, love and a huge dose of motivation and inspiration.

    Thanks for inspiring us Harsh!

    Weldone! Harsh, your story is so inspiring. I am unemployed and still thinking, it is worth doing! Why have more popular blogs/website less search engine traffic (20%) and more other Kind of traffic. why facebook traffic not doing well for adsense. What’s ur opinion harsh concerning to this topic.

    Hi Sir !
    As said Success is a journey not a destination. So, we should keep trying and trying. We might face failures but at some point of time, VICTORY is ours.
    As you’ve said , the main key to success is confidence. We waste our valuable time comparing other people and dream about being them. Instead we should draw inspiration from them. Everybody has their own strength’s and weakness and it’s only when we accept our strength’s and weakness , we truly become successful.
    You’ve been a great blogger and You are a TRUE Source of INSPIRATION to me and many others :)

    Cheerz ! Keep inspiring ! Keep writing !

    To be honest here, I want to share my story. I belong to a small village in haryana. Nobody here knows about blogging. Even my friend who are doing btech, not supported me. My parents refused to help me in my passion. And after a lot of struggle I came to about real SEO technique. In my journey I got masters like Harsh and Gaganpreet. I have no words to describe that how ShoutMeLoud has changed my life. You are the real guru Harsh. I have tried many times to talk to you but I understand how much busy life you have. Thanks Sir for giving a direction to my life. I can proudly say I AM A BLOGGER.

    Harsh, this is a very inspirational story.
    I understand all too well how it feels to be on the fence about your own future; you had to decide whether to keep working for your boss, or whether to become your own boss. Thankfully you made the right decision, an a very smart one as well. Best of luck with your blogging ventures, and I am a fan.

    Hello Harsh,
    I checked several, yes several website where I can learn about blogging and how to make some money and so far yours is number one. I like people that go direct to the point
    I have a question, the social media bar that you use I like but because I just started I do not have any “Likes”. Is there any way not to show the numbers??
