Q & A
1) When and how did you start blogging? I started blogging 2 years ago but with no serious intentions about it. I had just made my first blog just for the fun of it on Blogger. Serious blogging started 6 months after when I opened up a jokes blog. I stopped updating that recently and again started a new blog on my personal life.
2) How many blogs do you maintain? Currently I maintain 5 blogs.
3) What is your primary reason for blogging? Addiction :P
4) How many hours you spend blogging everyday? About 2-3 hours. I know it may sound a bit too much but common, the number is 5 blogs.
5) How do you market your blog? Link Exchange, Blog Directories, Forum Participation etc...
6) Do you monetize your blog? How? Yes I do monetize my blog. I get paid to blog about things. One thing I maintain is that I clearly classify my paid posts as "sponsored posts" and never increase my sponsored posts to original posts ratio from 1:4.
7) If you were to write your very last blog post, what it is about? Ouch! That would hurt... Anyways, I would blog about how my cyber life is getting over (I know it sounds very saddening)
8) What is the biggest blogging mistake you've ever done? Deleted my jokes blog by mistake! Had to repost all of them again. It took me about 2 days of continuous copy pasting from my backup files.
9) If you are allowed to read only one blog, what should it be? The Google Blog. God! I am a big Fan and an admirer of Google.
10) What advice can you give to other bloggers? Don't think that putting lots and lots of mods and advertisements to your blog will make you famous as well as rich. Putting too much of modifications(add-ons) and advertisements to your blog decreases its load time and also irritates the visitors. Also, please try to put in ads to your blog only when it is popular and has at least 50-100 visitors per day(Yeah!) because anything less than that will only give you not more than $5-6 per month which is very less. This is only a part of my advise; if anybody out there wants more of my advise please feel free to contact me through
