Experts tips – Discussion with Pradeep Kumar
1. Name some blogs/websites which you’re usually read to expand your knowledge?
To be honest, I don’t really read specific blogs. I use apps like Flipboard and Pulse to read various blogs. But I love “The Oatmeal”, they explain concepts with the help of images (something like infographics).
2. How many hours you are spending on blogging and your working style?
I work at night, it starts from 10:00 PM to 8:00 AM. I take productive breaks, and watch movies as well. Night time could be the best productive time for us, no one to disturb.
3. What is your opinion about blogging in the future, will it become a profession like IT/ITES?
I’m hoping for a course about “Blogging” in colleges, something like Journalism. Blogging is so delicate, that it is considered to be another version of Journalism. Some people might do it part time, and some involve in this fully.
4. Which is your preferred traffic generation method and why?
Social Media, this is the best traffic generation source I would say. Sharing something new and useful, promote it a bit and there you go, it’s viral!
5. Just few lines about your income sources and future plans.
Income sources.. ahh.. it’s quite difficult actually, my primary blogs are not using Adsense, because I’m afraid that my writing talent could be sacrificed because of Adsense Terms and Conditions. My blogs are powered by sponsored reviews and direct advertisers. I don’t want to make so much of money out of my blogs, I just want to make money for my living.
Previously I had a simple discussion with Mr. Atish Ranjan (SEO cum blogger) and Mrs. Malathy Badri (internet marketer). Both mentioned you as their favorite blogger. Even I too pointed out that you’re my inspiring blogger in a post. So here is an additional question.
6. What do you think about it (many bloggers are mentioning you) and state the secret of this success?
Ah, sweet! This is really motivating. I’m a simple guy who doesn’t believe in limits. I blog for passion, share knowledge, interact with readers and moreover a person who doesn’t take his online life so serious, because we have a challenging life offline.
Few words for newbie bloggers
Don’t quit blogging because you can’t make money out of it, it was never actually meant for that. Make an idea, work on it, and work smart!
Thanks Pradeep for spending your valuable time to provide answers for my questions. Hope it would help the bloggers to enhance the skills of blogging.
I suggest all my readers to visit his blogs as those are the treasure house of esteemed information.
