numbers are not a joke, For those who are into blogging better knows
the pain of getting one induced subscriber or reader to the blog. I
spent countless number of hours to build these audience to the blog.
There are plenty of resourceful bloggers out there who create beautiful
content and still struggle to build audience, For those bloggers I’ll
share my road map how i built audience to this blog in my other tech
fine day in the beginning of march 2011, I was happen to write a
creative writing test, I scored on the top 20% out of 10,000
professional freelance writers online. It was a pleasant surprise.
Do I really have writing skills? I thought why should not I give it a
try. So on my search to find something to write on… to test my skill, A
beautiful dream which i had last night came into my mind. I thought to
describe the dream i had in written words. I begun forming a imaginary
story & characters to describe the 2 minute dream i felt.
shared the story on Squidoo (At that time I don’t own a blog). The plot
i posted there in ranked 1700 out of 800,000+ lenses. The story was
featured in squidoo home page for some days.
i wish to save the story in some safer place, so i saved in my mail
labelled beloved. There was already plenty of mails flooding my inbox
daily. So i wish to save and share the plot in a better area.
My First Blog
The blog is not very impressive, I can’t create content to the blog on a
regular basis. So my first blog was a failure.During the same month i
got a chance to read all my mails labelled beloved. There was more than
30 in the list. I had a habit of reading self improvement books and i
was a big fan of The Secret to Teen Power Book, so i usually collect all
the mails that deliver some sort of positive message. I felt really
happy in reading all those emails in one place. I thought it will be
better if all the mails are available in one place. Those mails are
collected over period of 12 months, I also had over 200 inspirational
wallpapers which i usually have in my desktop background collected over a
period of 12 months.
named it as Live-Positive because the blog is aimed at spreading
positive message. I setup the blog, I converted every mail i had into
posts, and uploaded all the wallpapers i collected over a period of
time. The blog has exiting inspirational content that anyone love to
read and share.
month passed by, there has been no readers to my blog. Obviously the
only genuine reader & Subscriber of my blog is myself. I Still
happily continued the good work of sharing positive message through my
blog because i love doing so. An other month passed by and my blog has
40 posts and still no big difference in readers and subscribers.
to my blog, I usually share the posts of my blog on Facebook. day by
day fans of my blog got increased and so is my interest and enthusiasm
to blog more. My blog reached 500 fans
on June 2011. My Happiness knew know bounds when i reached 500 people.
People happily like, share & comment on the posts on my blog. People
actually love the posts i create. My fan page reached 1000 fans
at the end of July 2011. The fan base hit 5000 on may 2012. Facebook
plays an important role in generating initial level readers on my blog.
My subscriber count slowly increased day by day.
Is it worth for all the time being spent into blogging??
was a million dollar question probably everyone have. Yes, it
definitely is… I loved doing blogging, because it brings me
Apart from happiness, I..
- I had a voice
- I can establish an online presence.
- People really listen to my words.
- I can have a relationship with fellow like minded bloggers.
- I have the power at my finger tips to reach the world with my written words.
these, People actually look back when it generate revenue. When all my
time being spent will be converted to real cash.
i decided to give it a try. I signed up for Google Ad-sense on August
2011 and started displaying ads on my blog. For the first 2 months there
was no revenue at all.
the time i was using default blogger template under blogger sub domain.
It seemed very unprofessional. So i moved on to custom template with
custom domain. I changed my blogspot URL to Custom domain www.livepositiveway.com & with custom theme. Live positive way blog got its exiting look on october 2011. I mentioned it the post Live Positive blog is Upgrading
had a pleasant surprise & a worst shock when i performed this
upgrade. The surprise is the amount of daily income through ads
increased from nothing to something.
worst shock is All the traffic to my blog got tremendously decreased.
All the Facebook comments disappeared. All my countless hours of work to
bring traffic to my blog wasted for nothing. But what i seen from the
subsequent months is a magic.
My First Cheque From Google. Yaayh !!!
pleasant surprise is traffic to my blog increased at an incredible rate
than i couldn’t imagine. With this traffic the daily earnings in my
adsense account got increased from nothing to something, I got my first
adsense cheque in the next 3 months.
Apart from earning potential,
My blog can able to make with in 100 position in the indiblogger during
April 2012 out of 2500 blogs from chennai.
Alexa global traffic Rank fell down within hundred thousand.

Apart from all these blogging introduced me many of
blogger friends. I had attended some good blogger meet at Chennai and
made some good blogger friends
|Blogger Meet @Hyatt Regency|
these meets I had come in contact with many real blogger who produce
awesome content and who have real deep passion for blogging. After
attending this blogger meet, it created an impact on me to create
content rather than just sharing it. I will sit down many times with
strongest hope to write content for this blog, but i don’t know why most
of the posts will always be in the drafts section. I hope to publish it
all in the near future. Then i realized i have plentiful of technical
skills that are worth to be shared. This inspired me to start a
technical blog in the beginning of 2012, called TheProgrammersGuide.com,
The tech blog is the culmination of entire technical knowledge i have,
shared in the good will of helping fellow people. I reserved a dedicated
section called Blogging Tutorials
in my tech blog, where i share my knowledge about blogging. For those
who need to know about the technical secrets behind achieving traffic to
the any blog, You can find my experience here in my tech blog as RoadMap for increasing Traffic to your blog.
from all these i receive sponsors from many organizations, They happily
provide unique content to my blog, Send positive books, T Shirts,
Promotional Materials etc. There are the things that inspires me to blog
which i started accidentally now had become full time hobby and
passion. It has a purpose of good will. I take this opportunity to
express my sincere gratitude to every reader of this blog. I will do it
