Tell us about the beginning of your online journey?
I started my online journey on November 1, 2008. I was searching for some part time money making website and then I was very lucky to find a website which changed my online life completely. I found IndiaStudyChannel.Com(ISC) on that day. It was mid night when I created my account. I worked for continuous 3 months and then I received my first payment of Rs 1250. I had then worked for almost 1 and half year on that website in my spare time, earned Rs 5000+ in total and then used this money to start my first website and then used the earnings from wedost to start my other blogs and so on. I would like to thank Mr. Tony (Creator of ISC) and one of my friend Syed Rizwan,met him online, helped me in registering my domain name & web hosting using his Credit Card. At that time, we were just in touch through GTalk. Due to the Trust of Rizwan in Me, I blindly trust everyone online from that day. Now, we both are close friend.

Do you manage your websites by yourself?

Tell us about the present statistics for your website?

Do you think online business is easier in comparison to offline business?
Doing Business is never easy. Both offline and online business require same amount of effort & hard work. But for me, Online Business is easy (but risky) because I have no idea about offline business.

What qualities are needed in your opinion to succeed online?
Trust yourself. Be Honest & dedicate yourself to the work you are doing.

What are the blogs that you follow except your own?
Mainly of my inspiration). Apart from this, I play with Google search results.

What advice will you give to other budding bloggers?
If you have decided to achieve something online with blogging then I am sure you will. Just set your goals. Give them deadline. Complete your goal before the deadline (Don't worry! You will automatically do it before the time, once you have started working on a predefined goal). Repeat the process again for the next goal. This is what I do and I hope, this will be useful for other bloggers.

Thank you very much Krishna for the Interview. This is my first Interview. I don't have experience in giving interviews. Wishing you everything that you want to achieve in your life. God Bless you.
