How I Am Satisfied and Happy Earning $0/Month Online After Denying A 30K/Month Offer

Hello Shouters,

Let us start with an introduction of myself.

Who Am I?

I am Sinchan Dey, presently working as a full-time blogger. I got into blogging 3 years ago, but back then, I was a freelancer.

Happy & Content

This is not me but I’m as happy & content as him! Wanna know why?

However, the idea of getting my own blog and making it work for me came from a series of Harsh’s blog posts I read earlier this year.

I was writing content on some SEO topics when I stumbled upon ShoutMeLoud. I started reading many of the posts here and really got into it. I remember reading over 20 posts in a single day!

What Is My Story Behind The Title?

It was exactly that day that I read all those posts that I decided to give this blogging thing a try.

And on that same day, out of nowhere, I received a text on LinkedIn. To my surprise, it was a formal text from the HR department of a popular tech blog.

To give a little history here… I have been into tech blogging for a long time, and I have been writing articles for many blogs as a ghostwriter. I got this offer based on the articles I had shared on LinkedIn, and they even offered me a 30k/month salary!

The only condition was I had to move to Delhi immediately to join their team.

The Dilemma

Now, this was an amazing offer for me, as I was being paid for what I loved doing and had been doing all these years (and as of now, without much reward or recognition).

This offer was too good to be true; being part of a popular tech blog would not only give me a good salary, it would also give me a good platform to share my work.

It was a great deal, right?

A perfect break for a young blogger who was writing articles published in others’ names with nominal charges per article.

So why I am currently still struggling to pay my domain fees and internet charges every month?

The answer is simple:

  • I denied the offer.

Was it right to do this? I don’t know, and I don’t want to know.

I know what you are thinking:

  • That was naive and impulsive.

To be honest with you, I thought the same.

I even regretted denying the offer for some time.

However, in the back of my mind, something kept reminding me:

I have to follow my desire of doing something on my own.

How I Ended Up As a Blogger

I have always loved writing, and technology was something that I have been interested in since my school days.

The only thing I knew for sure was that I wanted to wake up every morning excited and thrilled about doing something new. I never liked having a boss and doing things their way. I always wanted to do things the way I wanted. That has always been exciting to me.

And here came God’s voice (in the form of Harsh’s blog posts)…

As I said earlier, I had read 20 posts that day, and I had even done extensive research on Harsh. This made me forget about my freelance career and look forward to creating my own canvas to pen my thoughts. I finally had a direction that I wanted to head.

I told myself:

  • “If Harsh can do it, I can do it, too.”

This gave birth to my blog – YourOwnConsumer.com –  and even though it’s still relatively new, I have high hopes for it and truly believe it will work out well.

Why Should You Make The Move Soon

I started reading a lot of blogs, and I came across many bloggers like Harsh who had taken the initial risk and eventually made a name for themselves. Just imagine if Sachin Tendulkar (Cricketer) was working in an MNC, would anyone know who he was? I believe that we all have a Sachin or Harsh in ourselves.

Unless we take that first step and try our best to follow our desires, we will never know what we could have done. It just takes a single resignation or a single “no more” to start following along this path.

Isn’t it easy?

Well, no. To be honest, nothing is easy.

But the next time you wake up in the morning, ask yourself, “Am I excited to go work today?” You will get the answer loud and clear in your head.

We all have some desires hidden and piled under deadlines and boss’s orders.

You might say, “We have responsibilities and need money to support ourselves.” Well, I might have no answer to that. But I would ask a simple question in return:

  • “Can you live with the knowledge of what you could have done if you only tried your entire life”?

Life is too short to have repents.

Before it’s too late to try, give it a shot. Sign that resignation letter you had typed months back but never dared to mail in. Tell your boss that you’ve had enough.

I am not saying it is the easiest way. In fact, it is really tough. But it has to be tough; that’s why most people do not dare take this route.

However, I can guarantee you that you will be happier living each day of your life the way you want. You might not have the same pay check at the end of the month, but you will have a life you love.

Do not wait until life burdens you with responsibilities; it’s easier to take a risk at a young age rather than regretting not doing it sooner while you grow old.

How To Make It Count

If you love doing something and can dedicate your life to it honestly, success will follow you.

  • Beta kabil bano, kamiyabi jhaak maar ke piche ayegi.” (In Hindi language)

This is a famous quote from a movie called 3 Idiots. It means:

  • “Chase excellence, success will come eventually.”

If you are good at something, try to work on your skills and be the best version of yourself.

We learn every day, and every day is a challenge. You must be polishing your skills each day. It is a tough road out there and you need to face hurdles and failures. These things shouldn’t scare you from taking the risk, as there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Always remember that we remember the ones who dared, and not the ones who were scared.

Get Up And Go!!!

Are you still reading my post and thinking to yourself you want to give it a shot?

Well! Get up and make the move before it is too late!

Second chances are for movies, not life.

Take the chance, make the move, and dare to take the risk.

I’m waiting to hear your success story in the comments below!

  1. I think The LinkedIn offer was very good for you (30k /m). in the same time you can have your own Blog, so you could have multiple option to earn more. Linkedin will miss you forever.

    1. I had the thought too, but getting stuck was not an option when you want to live for yourself. Cheers

  2. I’m really inspired, thank you. I always love to do my own thing but my work schedule is eating me up. I have two online community platforms. Maybe it’s time to take second thoughts. Very soon I’ll quit my employment and follow my passion.

  10. Hi Sinchan,

    It’s an inspiring story. I also regularly follow Harsh and his blog posts.

    I’m also trying my luck in blogging. I’m not good at writing but trying my best to share my expertise in best possible way to all bloggers out there.

  11. Hi Sinchan,

    Choosing one’s own path in life is a very courageous thing to do. Wish you the best.

  12. Absolutely inspiring. I’m half way through my corporate career, as a senior executive in a lofty company but here I am scraping my way through to continuously enrich myself with SEO to be able to get this blog of mine up and running. The motivation, like you mentioned, is less so monetary but more the fact that you would want to leave or live this life with regrets, not doing what you love. The saying, by Mr Robert Frost, “the road less travelled, the path less taken” resides deeply with me since.

    1. Sinchan Dey

      That are some inspiring words, Sir. Coming from someone with your experience and knowledge it does inspire people like us Hustling with our dream.

  13. Thanks Sinchan

    Going independent is a big decision and has many stings attached.

    And, Your story is truly inspiring and reassuring for people like us, who are trying our best to “make our own story”.

  14. The article is too good that I can’t even express in words.I am the one who believes in Do what you want to!!!
    Your story is so motivating.
    Thank you for sharing.

  15. Grace Akinosun

    A lot of persons share only their “success stories” (after they have made lots of cash). Thank you for sharing your progress story. The thought of seeing someone pushing the limit without an immediate financial gratification is highly inspiring.

    1. Sinchan Dey

      Every successful man has days of turmoil, days where they feel like quitting. You know what keeps them hustling? Their passion, their attitude and their will to succeed. I keep visiting this post to read comments. And it does inspire and make me feel, well I am doing something worthwhile. Good Luck

  16. Pawan Jeghariya

    Hi,
    Awesome! the very heart touching! We all learn this post that Never Gives Up. Thanks, Sinchan Dey

  17. I have not read your article yet.. But, i am here to say that I am one of them. My friends & family think I’m screwed. After completing Diploma, i have rejected some job. Because I am trying to get success from online. I know one day i will do that.
    #Thanks for this great article…

  18. With the very same intention, and same passion I started my website 3 months ago. So now my site is 3 months old. Earlier I used to spend time on YouTube, I did it for a whole one year, though I had a good number of subscribers and views YouTube used to pay vey less. So, finally here I’m, with my passion to share knowledge of civil engineering to the world.
