Enough of this laid back attitude! I thought to myself. I have to do something more for my blog…. great, I shall monetize it!
I felt great… but when it came to doing it all, I was suddenly a neophyte in the world of blogging. I realized that suddenly I knew nothing.
So what does a sinking man do? He calls for help. And that’s exactly what I did. I called for help and help came in from two angles. My virtual friends whom I have never met chose to help me. In a world where even drinking water is paid for they helped me for free. No charges!
And thus began my journey of unlearning and learning afresh.
SEO, Analytics, RIO, blog transfer, host, linking, google bots were all the terms that I had heard many times but was totally clueless about them all. Now all were thrust upon me… and all of a sudden I was lost. Gingerly I went from one task to other with my two virtual friends Ankit and Syed/Aatif guiding, pushing, nudging and motivating me all the way… from being a mentor I was now a student, from being a seasoned blogger I was now a neophyte. Trust me it is an all-new experience for me!
Who says life is boring? I used to look forward to weekends to sleep and now I wait for the weekends as this is the only time I get to work on my blog building. So many questions I hurl at them each time they tell me something new but patiently they have been answering all… now I feel that I have a lot to learn but I am not alone. I have two solid pillars that support me and urge me to move on in the right direction.
Thank you, Syed and Ankit I could not have done it without you both.
