Hello Friends, I have started atishranjan.com for sharing whatever I like to. Before I start my story about how I came into online world of Blogging, I would like to introduce you to my early life.
I was born in Sitamarhi District of Bihar state (India). Sitamarhi is well known for being the birth place of Mata Sita. My studies started there only. I have passed out Matriculation (10th standard) from M.P. high School (Sitamarhi) in 2004. After Completing 10th I thought to move to New Delhi (Capital of India). My brother was already in Delhi so I had not got issues and I moved to Delhi then took Admission in 11th Standard and There I completed 11th and then 12th with Science Stream.
It was 2006 when I was ready to enroll for Bachelors Degree. I chose BCA as I was having a great interest in computers. Hence I completed BCA in 2009 from IGNOU. I couldn’t choose regular College because I had to overcome the financial crisis which I was facing and to overcome that I used to give home tuition in the day time.
I thought to study MCA but conditions didn’t allow me to pursue the same. I started searching for any kind of job which resulted into 2-3 computer jobs that I left just after short period of time.
That time I had started managing my friend Durgesh’s Forum because I did enjoy doing that. In that forum I used to moderate posts, reply to queries and all. One day I got a question from Zainil, I replied to him and gradually we became friends. Meanwhile I was having a blogspot blog with no content. One day, while discussing something Zainil gave an idea about starting a blog where we can share some tips and tricks. I liked the idea and even he was ready to contribute.
There started the journey, I started with atishranjan.blogspot.com but zainil said it should have a techie name. Then after full night of brainstorming I changed the url to techtricksworld.blogspot.com which Zainil Liked very much. It was June month of the year 2010.
We started sharing tips and tricks on regular basis without having any knowledge of SEO and monetization. But I used to browse other blogs and leave comments on them which started giving benefit in terms of traffic and a little bit recognition among fellow bloggers.
Later we heard about adsense and we just applied in the 3rd month which was rejected by Google and we again applied after 5 months and it was approved within a week. We were very happy and we started thinking for making money too but the traffic was still not so good.
Later all most after an year I thought to get own domain only and host on blogger but my friend Durgesh said that one.com is offering most affordable domain hosting then why are you going to spend 10 USD for a domain while you are getting domain+hosting just at 13 USD for the very first year. I agreed that and he booked domain+hosting as I was not having CC or Visa debit card which is accepted by one.com. I made the payment to him via bank transfer.
The date on which techtricksworld.blogspot.com had been moved to techtricksworld.com, was 10th may 2011 and it was the real start of my blogging career.
Me and Zainil worked very hard on it and in the first PR update we got nothing but in the next update which was happened around 6 months after we did blogger to wordpress migration, we got Page Rank 4 for techtricksworld. In those days, having good PR gives your blog a great value and TechTricksWorld.com became zero to hero in no time.
Traffic, earning, recognition everything started coming. It was the turning point of my life. Later my passion turned into a business and I have multiplied the number of blogs with Zainil to earn good revenue. This business is successful because I am still having passion for blogging and I believe where there is passion, success is guaranteed sooner or later.
One thing I forgot to tell you that when It was on blogspot I used to practice the on page SEO on it as I read about SEO somewhere and the best thing happened was I got an interview call for the same which I cracked in the very first attempt. This way my blogging hobby helped me start career in SEO.
