Writing has been a part of my life for a long time, though I was not formally introduced to blogging and the internet until I came to Kathmandu in the year 2011. At that point of time writing was just my hobby and I never knew it could help me earn money. So, let me say you my Blogging journey and how I started as a professional Blogger.
Before coming to the Kathmandu Valley, I had got some of my articles published in the local newspaper but had no idea about writing on the virtual world except the Facebook status.
It was in 2011 when I created my first Blog on Blogger and randomly named it as “The Flying Birds” where I used to write some random things which I observed in my surrounding and thoughts.
Back then, the internet was not so common, and the higher secondary study race made me forgot my blog. Later on, I again rebooted it but got suspended because of illegal clicks on the ads.
Though I had very little about blogging back then, I was always curious to see how many people read my articles.
I never knew whether the stats were real or fake. But I remember how good the feeling was to know that my posts had readers, no matter what I wrote.
The excitement made me write some more articles for some time. After publishing a few (not so great) posts, however, I got bored of blogging.
How I ended up being a Blogger?
Five years later in the year 2017 after completing my engineering, I was looking forward to getting some job, and in the meantime, I got to know about people making a handsome amount of money from Blogging.
I too thought to try my hands over it, and with very less investment I started my first blog “101Nepal” which was a tech blog back then. I remember having zero visitors for the early three days.
But I didn’t get demotivated as writing was my passion and I always have been fond of writing. Before starting my blog, I have actively written many answers on Quora and some other writing platform.
To create Backlinks for my blog, I randomly mailed one of the most popular Tech Blog of Nepal and Bingo! They responded and asked for my article.
Being new into Blogging, my article got published on well-known Blog “TechLekh’ which was an incredible feeling. It was not the first achievement; I even got a great job because of my blog.
The job profile was a Technical writer, and I wrote numerous of Engineering reports at my first job. But just after three weeks, I got another job with a better salary and great job benefits. My work was to write website content which I was already doping for my self.
I left my first job and started working at the fantastic company where I am currently employed. After my first blog, I started multiple blogs which I can’t mention here. This is a short story about how I started my Blogging Journey.
As it is my first post, I can’t explain everything in this post only. I will share my journey of Blogging, SEO, WordPress and writing tips on this blog which will be coming in upcoming posts.
