I am writing this post with great joy as I’m going to do something unique which very few people can do in their life. Yes, I just quit my full-time job to pursue my career in Blogging & Affiliate Marketing i.e., starting today (5th September 2012) I will be Blogging 9 to 5 which is full-time.
P.S: This post is about my career and me. So, please excuse me if this bores you.
I was introduced to blogging in the year 2006. At first, I used to post different things about softwares and piracy stuff. It was at the end of 2006, when I first came to know about Adsense and then created an account with them. But, Google didn’t take much time to ban my piracy related blogs. It was then when I decided to move to technology and education niche. The days passed by and I’ve made several attempts to ruin my blogs ( 😉 shifted from Blogger to WordPress and vice versa, migrated to different hosting services, tried different kinds of advertising networks, tweaked many templates and lot of shit etc…) which inturn helped me to gain more knowledge on how stuff works. In short, it is my nature to try different things despite the success involved in trying those things. Luckily, my revenue got increased in less than 2 years (2008) which is sufficient enough to quit my full-time job. But, I was unable to do so due to the society and people around me (especially because of the questions shouted by relatives at my parents).
I then continued my job hoping that someday I’d be free to choose what I really want to do. And it was in this year (2012) when I finally decided to quit my job and become a Professional Blogger. All thanks to my darling wife without whom I wouldn’t have made it.
Plans for the Future
Profession: I’m not a very active Blogger due to the time restrictions I’ve. I need to manage both my professional career and personal career equally. So, I didn’t take much interest in interacting with other Bloggers. But, this will be my first rule from now onwards to interact with fellow Bloggers.
Personal: I’ve taken some precautions just in case to overcome any hurdles in the future due to my revenue falling down. I kept aside 12 months of my monthly expenses (12 x 25k) so that even if I don’t get a penny in the span of 1 year, my personal/family life wouldn’t get disturbed. Next, I made sure that I had another source of income apart from just Advertisements and that’s the reason I entered into affiliate marketing and also providing WordPress services (only for close ones right now).
Well, that’s all for now. I’ll be posting more about my experiences in the coming posts. Thanks for visiting our blog. Happy Blogging 🙂
