3 Lessons Blogging Taught Me for my Life

Internet and Blogging has a lot to do with my life so far. It started out of interest and then grew into something that took over me completely.

Right now, I have started to get offline a lot more, still the lessons I got from my life here will stay forever.

Going Strong

#1. If you quit when its Boring, then you are like everyone else

Blogging is not all that beautiful, you gotto accept that. It’s fun at the start, but you got to keep up your pace (even when you get nothing in return) to reach where you want to reach. Consistent effort (when put in the right way, refer second lesson) gives results.

Everyone likes to do things that interest him. And most things fascinate in the beginning. Most people quit when it starts to get boring. You will only be a Legend if you keep going even when it starts to get boring.

#2. Practice doesn’t makes Perfect – Work Smarter

Well, its common knowledge that if you keep putting effort and if you work really hard, you will be super awesome. This is B.S. I kept on blogging for whole two and half years before I learnt what I should be doing to get where I want.

Not Hard Work, but Smart Work makes all the difference. There are certain ways to do certain things. When you see one isn’t working, analyse it, find the fault and then correct it.

Practising wrong wont make you perfect, Practice perfection.

#3. If you can do it once, you can do it again and again

This is something that gives me a lot of confidence day after day. Since March 2009 I have been making sizeable chunks of money online, whether it be through Adsense, Affiliates or through Freelance Projects.

I have decided to never go for work and this decision has been criticized and pity-fied by my family and relatives. I didn’t go to any school to learn Blogging or PHP or whatever I know to do what I do now. If I can do it once, I can do it again and again.

Divi WordPress Theme - My Review

Divi WordPress Theme
Divi is a WordPress theme that web designers do not want you to know. It comes with a drag-and-drop theme builder. You can build beautiful looking unique websites without touching a line of code. Just choose from one of the many pre-made layouts, or pick elements and arrange them any way you like.

Divi is every WordPress developer's wet dream. Surprise your clients with neat responsive websites and have fun building them.

Divi comes from Elegant Themes. If you enjoy building websites, you *need* an Elegant Themes membership. 87 beautiful themes and 5 plugins for the cost of less than a candy-bar each!

Note: I am an avid user of Divi myself and this is a honest review. I wouldn't recommend something that I do not personally find amazing.

    You decided not to go for work but Parents criticized that decision so, what you are doing at this moment of life? AFAIK you have completed Graduation.. So, what’s next? Higher Studies or continue what you are doing or will join some work?

    “If you can do it once, you can do it again and again”

    Completely agree with that hypothesis, Arun. I’ve seen that approach being applied successfully in various spheres. So, more power to your efforts.

  1. […] All these fears are now gone. The trip was a great success on a personal level, I tell myself out of pride, “Dude, you went to Indonesia by yourself, you are awesome!”. It’s one of the things that blogging taught me, If you can do it once, you can do it again and again. […]
