The real journey of my blogging career was started on 10th May, 2011 although I did start blogging in 2010 but that was not the actual start (as I was sharing 100 words tips and tricks on a blogspot blog which was not the actual blogging.). So I consider the beginning of my blogging career is 10th May 2011. And yes, Techtricksworld.com has also completed its 3 years on the same day.
Just few days ago on 10th May 2014 I have completed 3 years in the blogosphere. I can say that I am enjoying blogging more than anything else in the world.
These 3 years have taught me a lot of things which are beneficial for both my personal and professional life. I thought I should share my experience and learning with you.
Below are the few things I have learnt over these 3 years of blogging which I think we all should do to perform better:
Believe in Hard work
When I was a small kid I was told always that hard work never fails and I memorize the same but never ever did so much of hard work except while preparing for my 10th board exam which gave good results. Then after I have been a good believer of working hard(but smartly).
Later on when I moved to Delhi for higher studies, it took a lot of effort to study all the subjects in English because till 10th I was a Hindi medium student. I did work hard on subjects along with English which turned out to be good and I have scored well in 12th again after poor performance in 11th standard.
When I started blogging I suffered finding words to write but gradually my hard work helped me write good stuffs though I am still not a good writer but I can write correct English at least.
When I started my career I used to earn some amount that was not enough to fulfill my basic needs but again hard work I did in blogging and in my job made it possible to earn well which is now not only enough for my needs but I can even save for my future as well.
There are many more examples I can show you where this statement proved to be true “hard work never fails”.
!Start working hard !
Hard work alone is not enough. If you work very hard for few days and then you do take rest for longer then it might not be effective. You have to be very consistent towards your venture. Work hard with smartness and consistency. Even work a little less but do it consistently in order to achieve success.
I have been blogging since long with my friend Zainil and I can say that we never broke our consistency till now which is the key to our little success (not a big success but we are on the right track).
!Stop laziness and keep yourself consistent towards work!
Help the Needy
I always emphasize on helping the needy ones. There is a feel good factor along with the awesome benefits of doing it. I wrote a post entitled how helping others helped me on this blog which you should read to know how exactly it helps you as well.
Never help those people who just don’t want to help themselves. I am saying this because I came to know few people who don’t want to learn and work rather they want to get everything done from others.
My motto is to help and educate others so that next time they can do the stuff themselves rather than asking to anyone but few people want their work to be done only.
!Help & Learn!
Live Offline Life too
This is one of the biggest problems I am noticing in the bloggers of our blogosphere i.e. they spend too much of their time online even if it is not necessary. Yes, you heard right! They work hard but even after finishing their work they do stay online till hours which happens because of their addiction towards social media.
I have learnt to live offline live along with online ventures after observing few bloggers and even myself. I was doing the same but I am no more using internet if I have no work. I try to enjoy offline life too because it keeps on refreshing me. You should also enjoy offline life as well as online. Believe me it helps you stay interested in your work. Try it!
!Enjoy all the colours of Life!
Love your work
I have learnt this when I came to professional world. I have observed with so many people that if you don’t love what you do then there are very less or no chances of success but on the contrary if you love what you do then there are greater chances of getting success.
Not just blogging but writing, coding, designing or any offline business or job, whatever you do just love it and do it with passion and see the results.
Important note for this point: To love the work you do you should always choose the work you want to do then only you can be passionate towards it .
!choose what you love, love what you do!
Never Stop Learning
This is the most important lesson I have learnt in the blogging and professional industry. Learn something everyday. Learning doesn’t mean to do educate yourself with only big lessons rather it does mean to learn anything which interests you.
!Learning stops, growth Stops!
Mind your Manners
We should always mind our manners. If you don’t then it can have adverse effect on you. So mind your manners and be good to everyone. Keep smiling and most importantly be a reason for others’ smile.
!Be good to be loved!
I have learnt these things and I hope these are few most important things we should always care about for a smooth career. There are lots to say but I would like to put a full stop here and the remaining talk we will do in comment form. Let’s start the discussion!
