Blogging is a passionate job for geeks who love to spend their time on internet. Blogging brings lots of hope and satisfaction in life. One can see his brightened career in the form of blogging. Blogger has a fantastic future because blogging gives lots of exposure as well as money in life. But every blogger has a starting point. From starting point I mean a phase in a blogger’s life when he came to know about blogging thing.
Different Phases of my Blogging life
I came to know about blogging 10 months ago when my friend told me about blogging and how we could make money online with the help of writing articles on blogging platform like Blogspot. I took his words seriously and started writing article. I don’t know what to write and how to write articles. I was new to Blogspot blogging platform. I made a blog and start writing articles. I was unaware of the power of Twitter, Facebook and comments so I minimally promote my articles. The most memorable moment is when some one drop a comment on my blog. I used to feel like I have done a great achievement and from their my blogging journey started.
Part Time Blogging
Time passed away and I attended the most important event for any WordPress user, i.e. Wordcamp India 2009. There I met one of the founder of WordPress Mr. Matt Mullenweg. I came to know about power of WordPress and Blogging. After the event I started serious blogging on WordPress platform. But I faced a huge problem in my whole blogging life. I had a day to day job and It was very difficult for me to research for an article and writing it. I started finding it hard to take out time for my friends and family.
Full Time Blogging
After some time I had various projects and freelancing offers in my hand. I started earning from my blogging job. I started counseling with my friends about my work and in the month of October and took a very tough decision of my life. I resigned from my day to day job and become a full-time blogger (Professional Blogger). Now I’m happy because now I am earning a good amount of money with a freelancing work and I have a enough time to take care of my blog.
Full time blogging is not equal to professional blogging. People often confuse between these two terms. Professional blogging brings lots of responsibilities and discipline in your life. There should be proper schedule of your each work. You should work and think like professionals. There are many professional bloggers all around the World who are working very seriously in their field. My friend Harsh Agarwal is a perfect example of professional blogger who managed to work day and night and now he bring his blog at one of the top blog of India within one years.
Power brings responsibilities (A famous dialogue from Spiderman Movie) applies to the blogging also.
