Excellent! Thanks for such an insightful share. Also thanks for sharing your how to guide on blogging. How did you first get into blogging, what inspired you?
I started blogging many times over the past few years and quit every time. It was 9 months ago when I started this last blog of mine with my own name. I have no plans to quit anymore as I have worked in the right direction this time. My inspiration are all those bloggers who don’t have a university degree and have built a passive income source online.
That happens to many. But I’m glad you stuck by your passion and began to blog again. What tools have helped you most with your blogging?
I use YoastSEO for on-page SEO and LongTail Pro for keyword research. LongTail Pro is an effective tool to find highly profitable keywords.

Facebook groups have helped me a lot in getting targeted audience on my blog. I use Pinterest, StumbleUpon, Twitter and Google+. StumbleUpon can be very effective if your content is interesting. I network with other bloggers using Facebook groups.
Do you have any favorite bloggers you follow, or bloggers that have been a source of inspiration for you?
Yes, I follow Harsh Agarwal and Pradeep Kumar. Both are famous Indian bloggers.
