I would like to say thanks to him for giving us time to share his secrets and blogging journey.
Let’s start an interesting talk.
Please tell a few words about yourself and Your Online Journey?
First of all, Thanks Ankit for inviting me on your blog.
I started blogging in October 2016. Till my second year of college, I was not aware of my interest and passion. But at that time, I loved to spend time on computers and laptops.
After some time, from one of my friends, I got to know about earning money online by using AdSense. Then I searched about it a lot.
And then I decided to start a blog and YouTube channel to earn money online. It was in October 2016.
But that doesn’t work for me. Then I decided to learn more about blogging and YouTubing. And after learning the basics from YouTube and Google.
I launched my blog BloggingQnA and YouTube channel on July 18, 2018, and the rest of all is in front of you guys.
What made you get into blogging?
After my schooling, I don’t have any idea what to do next. Then I took admission in BBA because everybody in my friend circle is doing this course. So, I also did the same.
Till my second year of college, I was not aware of my interest and passion. I was just doing all the random things that everybody is doing.
Eventually, with my college batchmate I attended a seminar where I got to know about AdSense and Blogging.
At that time, I was not doing anything so I thought to get into blogging because I hate that 9 to 5 job. I don’t want to do that.
So, I decided to take blogging as my carrier option. And today I am enjoying it, and earning a good amount from blogging.
What was your biggest failure and what did you learn from that?
As of now, I haven’t faced any big failure in blogging. But yes, Initially I was just focusing on only one income source. That was my mistake that I was doing.
So, if you are earning a stable income from one earning source. Just don’t stick to that only. Make different sources of income because you never know what will happen in the future.
What are your income sources? How much do you make every month at an average?
My Main Income sources are Google Adsense, YouTube Sponsored Videos, Sponsored Posts, and Affiliate Marketing.
If I talk about my monthly earnings, honestly speaking, I am not very comfortable sharing my Earnings. But on my audience’s demands and comments, I shared some of my earning proofs on my YouTube Channel and on my blog also.
You can check them below: –
Here are my Videos in Which I have shared some of the earnings proof.
Apart From this, On High Demand, I am sharing all my recent payment proofs on My Instagram Handle. So, you can follow me there for some motivation from my payment proofs.
What blogging tips do you wish everyone should know about?
Blogging is not a quick rich scheme that will make you rich overnight. I learned this tip over time, and I wish every newbie should know about this.
Because I am getting many emails and messages on social media that we are not getting traffic, we are not earning money, and other questions.
Then I asked them a simple question, how many days back you started your blog? And they answered: –
2 days back, 15 days back, 1 month back, or in rare cases some say 6 months back.
Then I simply tell them this “Blogging is not a quick rich scheme that will make you rich overnight”.
I wish every newbie could understand this, blogging is a real business nowadays. This is no more a hobby. Like every other business, you have to invest your money, Time, and hard work in it.
And most important like all other businesses it requires some time for the best outcomes.
Some Tips you would like to share to be a SuccessfulBlogger?
