Blogging is Just The Start of Your New Journey

Hello! Pals. Sorry for not keeping you updated from a long time. Actually there comes a time in everyone’s life when you need to prioritise things and give your time only to those things which really matters. But being a blogger I can’t stay any longer not writing anything on my blog.

My inactivity was because I was working on a big project during these months. I’ll be sharing little bit about it today. Blogging has always been a part of my life. I’ve been blogging from last 3 and a half years. Oh, I remember now, at this time in 2011 I started writing on my first blog.

And then I started writing about blogging, random stuffs about social media and marketing on this blog. Many known bloggers like Harneet Bhalla, Aditya Nath JhaErik Emanuelli and Pradeep Kumar have appeared on my blog. Their contribution has been worth mentioning. I’ve truly learnt a lot from them.

I thank all my blogger friends, readers and the whole blogging community for always supporting my work. In these 3 years time, I’ve got to work with companies like IOBIT, BitDefender, Amasty, WebHostingBuzz and Digiarty. Since then I’ve been doing online marketing as well as giving copywriting services, creating giveaways and writing reviews for many individuals as well as companies. Everything has been a good experience for me.

I believe that blogging is just the start. It is just the beginning of a new journey of your life. (more…)

I’ve mentioned a few money making ways on my blog earlier and today I’m going to talk about Infolinks, which is a text-based advertising company and helps publishers/bloggers to make a revenue from their blog.
