The OLAMOSH Meet Blogger Interview series continue this week with a very young Indian Blogger and Netpreneur. I StumbleUpon him in the blogosphere recently and i was really amazed with what he has achieved so far at a very tender age of 12. Yes, I mean, He is 12 Years Old.
Knowledge is only potential power says an adage and paves the road of RICHES when you know which road to take. Information brings transformation. If you are not informed you cannot be transformed. Enough information brings you to your destinations.
When i was 12, i knew nothing about blogging or even the internet. Am only guide to study hard in school as a young boy. When i was growing up my father use to tell me “Knowledge is Power” and funny enough the motto of the nursery school i attended (Adex Nursery & Primary School) is tag “Knowledge is Power” 🙂
Seek for knowledge and never stop learning. My interview chat with Bishal Biswas is really a inspiring one, having the knowledge on how to share thoughts and make money through the internet at the age of 12. I hope this interview will inspire alot of new bloggers and also tired bloggers who is planning to quit blogging because money is not flowing as expected.
Never think of quit blogging, just keep writing quality content, keep promoting, Setup a powerful monetisation strategy for your blog and that’s the way to succeed if you want to build a strong internet presence that lead to riches and accolades.
The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.
I will want you to feel relax and enjoy this interesting interview chat with Bishal Biswas of ViralBlogTips.com . If possible, urge you to grab a cup of tea or coffee 🙂 Here We Go!!!!
Please tell us a little bit about yourself?
Hello Olamosh, thanks for having me here on your prestigious blog. I am Bishal Biswas, a 12 years old Young Entrepreneur and a Blogger based in West Bengal. I have been blogging since mid 2011 which started as a hobby and later turned into an income source.
Chief Editor of a blogging niche blog – ViralBlogTips which mainly focuses on sharing Actionable Blogging Tips To Dominate Google.
I had been awarded by West Bengal Govt. and Science & Technology, and too by several other organization. Also interviewed by All India Radio.
Other than blogging, I love playing soccer (me, the captain of our school’s football team). However, blogging is something which I can’t live without, and it’s part of my life since.
Kindly tell us, who is a blogger?
Blogger is one who serve other. He is the one who do for other, he is one who inspire other, and he is one who motivates other. “Being a blogger isn’t a gain, but you should know that authority can only give you, Your Name”.
How did you come to know about blogging & when?
It was back in 2011 when I came to know about this mysterious name (Blogging) – it totally changed my life. It wasn’t unknown/unfamiliar to me, perhaps it’s something which motivates me in my life……You can read my full story
Tell us a bit about your mentor(s) in the blog-o-sphere.
I have manymentors, however I would like to specially thank these few people. Harsh Agarwal of Shout Me Loud (My Daily Dose for Inspiration). Jon Morrow of Boost Blog Traffic (Perhaps, a Powerful Writer). Neil Patel of Quick Sprout (The Authority Guru). John Lee Dumas of Entrepreneur On Fire (Power Pack Writer).
Last, but not the least I would like to specially thank, Neha Biswas (my elder sister), who motives me towards blogging.
Is ViralBlogTips.com your first blog?
No, it ain’t my first blog, I have managed several blog, few of them are The Digit Crunch (my first ever blog, sold now), and DailySEO – a blogging niche blog which totally changed my concept about blogging (perhaps, it’s too sold).
How old is your blog ViralBlogTips.com?
Ans: Um, probably it’s 32 days old or so.
How did you combine your education with blogging?
Blogging along with studies isn’t a good and spicy combination (what I think). It won’t allow you to concentrate on a specific thing. i.e. Sometimes while studying, I might think about a new topic to write on or how to take my blog to the next level.
And perhaps, having a schedule can ideally fix this issue. but i can say it is quite fun!!!
Tells us about your parent’s reaction towards your blogging career?
I do have full support and co-operation from my parents, and didn’t have any kind of restrictions. Apart of that, my sister too helps me a lot in extra activities like suggesting a concept for Logo, etc. So, I would say I have got an ideal family 🙂 .
You are a young & inspiring Indian Blogger, What can you say about India blog-o-sphere?
I’m glad to know, that you found me “inspirational”. However, I think it would still take time for me to reach that level to be called a Professional Blogger. I blog to learn, I blog to share, I blog to inspire, and I blog to lay an impact.
About Indian blog-o-sphere, I can just say it’s growing very fast, we now have more Indians coming into the blogosphere. Even I do have several friends who requests me to teach them blogging, and my school teacher is highly impressed about me.
However, to be on the specific topic that you have asked – I do believe that blogging isn’t done by regional wise, no matter who is of which region or religion, every one is same with one target – Being a Pro in the field. So, I would just say- Blog to inspire, not for showoff.
How should a wannabe blogger decide on a niche to blog about? Or what are the factors to consider in choosing blog niche/topic?
One should blog upon what they like to do, there’s no restriction that you can do blogging only on Tech or Blogging based niche. I would recommend choosing a topic in which one can survive for long. If you keen towards sports and a big fan of it, then you can consider blogging on sports niche. If you are good at planting trees, you can create a blog about it.
Did you have someone who edits your articles before publication?
No, I don’t.
Can you share with us, how you create content or the secret behind your blog articles?
Whatever the niche is, write from heart and perhaps, everything will be fine. In short, I would like to tell, content should be such that the reader who is reading it take an immediate action after reading the article be it commenting on the blog post, sharing it on social media, linking to your blog, or even subscribing to your blog.There is no hidden secret, just make sure you write from heart.
When starting your blog (viralblogtips.com), did you ever expect it to grow to where it is today?
I did start Viral Blog Tips with motive to grow a lot. To say, I was hungry for ranking 🙂
What are the methods you use in driving traffic to your blog?
Writing pillar content is a great way to enhance blog’s traffic. However, I do usually share my blog post (which are new, sometime old too) on social media, mainly Google+ and Facebook.
When did you make your first money from blogging and how does it feel?
It was March 25, 2013 (I still remember) that I earned my first $30 through a product review, the little money keeps motivating me.
About feeling, I was floating on air (a king with $30 in the pocket) :), you know what I mean to say.
How much did you make monthly online?
It’s depended upon how much I devout to earn online. My primary source of income is Freelancing (i.e. SEO Optimization, Logo Designing, etc), I do usually get 50+ orders for Logo Design monthly. However, a new project is soon to be executed which can possibly help me to earn $XXXX monthly.
Kindly share with us, how you spend your online income?
Ans: To be frank, I usually don’t spend on unnecessary stuffs/things. However, if something is required (urgently/needed for any work) then only I do purchase those.
Any special reason for your success in blogging?
Brainstorming Articles + Effective Promotion = Success. That what I would say.
Do you have any big announcements or upcoming projects you’d like to tell us about?
Yes, there is some. I am soon going to launch my very own Logo Designing Company (Branding Starts at just $40), and too there’s another Mega Project which I won’t disclose it now, but soon.
What Is Your Advice/Tip for Those Just Starting, I Mean Newbie’s/wannabe bloggers.
In conclusion (being a friend), I would suggest to focus more on content. Write, keep writing, and go on writing, and that’s the way to succeed if you want to build your online presence.
