  1. Such a wonderful journey you have, Mike. It’s certain that building up a better blogging profile is tough these days unlike the initial trend blogging has created globally since 2007-2008 period. Of course, a lot of remarkable changes have happened in this arena. It is not creating any trend anymore; majority of bloggers are serious about what they are doing. Because they know how good Google spiders are in estimating whole new levels of blogging system.

    Still, if someone knows how to move the cards on time and determined of what s/he is doing, I can confidently say that blogging ain’t going to be tough for them as well. Just that they should invest their time and energy in understanding how blogs work. In such a way, blogging will attract them, too.

    Enjoy your time, Mike! As a blogger myself, it’s really good to know stories of other bloggers. I said, as a blogger. 🙂

    All the best for your future ventures! Take care. 🙂

    Also, thank you so much for introducing Mike’s story to us, Nikhil. It’s truly motivational. I look forward to read your upcoming posts. Have a good day, bro. Take care. 🙂

  4. Hey Michael,
    Thanks for sharing these details on your journey. Indeed, some may think that blogging is easy.
    They’re so wrong.
    I’m a marketer, and blogging is one of my main activities. My first blogging lesson is that it’s hard as hell.
    The second one? Keep SEO in mind 😀
    Thanks again for this post and good luck!

    1. Thanks for stopping by to comment, Tim. It means a lot.

      Yes, SEO is very important part of blogging.

    1. It happened due to theme alteration. I have placed social sharing on the post. Now feel free to share it with your social media following. and thanks for notifying me.

    Thanks for inspiring Nikhil.

  6. As usual its great story Michael, what you said about too much knowledge is absolutely true…it always hurts badly ..

    1. I’m trying really hard, Mazhar. I want to do everything and do it straight away, but it only hinders me. Being able to concentrate is only half the battle.

  7. Michael S says:

    Great Post.
    Every blogger should know SEO, and it all begins with keywords. What keywords will you target for your post.

    1. You’re right, Michael. 99% of bloggers don’t even want to read such long posts as mine 🙂

  8. Hi Michael,
    It’s really an inspirational post. I mean it’s a great idea to write about the own experience. I just loved reading it and from starting of the post to the end I was thrilled and compared myself with the post.
    And I would also love to become your friends.
    Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you, Robin! It’s very pleasant to hear. Bloggers’ stories are often similar. You need to work a lot and love what you’re doing. In the beginning, it’s just very hard and you need some support.

      Sure, we can become friends! Don’t forget to become my subscriber 🙂

  9. Hey Michael,

    Great post, dude! I think you document the journey really well.

    I especially love how you spend a TON of time researching the following:

    1. Who your audience REALLY is
    2. What they REALLY want
    3. The best way to create the content they crave

    There is a lot of revamped crapola out there about how we “should” do things. But really, the best pay off is when we go our own ways and really develop something special and unique to us.

    1. You’re absolutely right, Tom! To go your own way is always hard, but it’s worth it! I always spend a great deal of time researching for my new articles, that’s why I can’t write them more often. But I’m trying 🙂

  10. Hi Michael,

    We already know each other 😉 It’s funny that when you’re truly sincere about yourself as a person, people would love to know more about you. I first got in contact with you on Twitter, then on your blog, then we had a few conversation through email and now here.

    Funny how things go. Also thank you for introducing me to MyQuickIdea.com. Great blog!

    1. Yes, Raul, I was very surprised to know that many people like my personal stories. I’m trying to be as transparent as possible. This is for the people who read me to see me firstly as a person, and secondly as a specialist.

  11. Hi Michael,

  13. This is truly an inspirational article. I have just started my blog and here I am looking at an inspiration. Thanks for sharing this.

    1. Everyone needs support, Dinesh! I’m very glad that my article inspired you. I tried to be ultimately sincere. Let me know if you’ve got any questions.

    1. Be my subscriber! We will definitely become friends. It’s very pleasant to know that you liked my article.

  14. Nikhil,

    Thanks for sharing this valuable post. I can see what it takes to be a professional blogger. After reading this, I cannot say I am a professional blogger although I have written hundreds of blog posts. My goal has not been to be a professional blogger. It has been to share information about my niches and build my credibility. However, I can see that all the extra research Michael did propelled him to huge success while mine feels as if I have been dilly dallying with a hobby. Another reminder to focus and go deeply within one thing rather than to attempt to do everything that is possible.

    Thanks again.

    Warmly,

    Dr. Erica

    1. Hi, Dr. Erica! I spend a lot of time doing my research because I just love doing it. I want to share 15 years of my experience with other people. Nowadays I devote almost all my time to my blog, not thinking about earnings. You’ve got a wonderful blog, so I wish you good luck.

  15. Hi Nikhil and Michael,
    what an amazing post.
    This is the first time I see a blogger from Belarus here.
    Interesting, I had a young man from Belarus sitting beside me in an English course
    in Malta and our first tractor here was build in Belarus. Nice to hear your story of
    success.
    Thank you, Nikhil and Michael for this great post, I wish you both all the best.
    Erika

    1. Wow, Erika! It’s wonderful that you know Belarus. Say Hi from me to your young man! Not only we have tractors, but we also have beautiful girls 🙂

  16. What a great story! like you Michael, I don’t understand why there is such a big problem with SEO. I suppose it’s because people think it’s tedious and because it’s tedious, it’s complicated and too much hassle. Get it right and it creates magic!
    SEO is not that hard to learn and, although it can be hard work, the rewards are great.

    1. You are absolutely right, Barrie! SEO isn’t difficult at all, you just need to start doing it, step by step. Moreover, the results can be awesome. My personal task is to somehow persuade other bloggers to start learning SEO and then help them go this way.

  17. Really inspiring and motivational.

    I honestly wish I knew as much as I know now regarding blogging when I first started off. But, I’m pleased with my progress. And I’m very impressed with Michael’s progress and success. A lot of what I read on his blog is pure awesomeness. Keep up the great work, Michael.

    1. Thank you, Andrew, for your kind words! Sometimes knowledge and experience can hinder us. Probably after so many years I still haven’t learned to set the priorities right.
      You’re a professional, Andrew, and I’m very proud to know you, and I hope that one day I’ll become a professional blogger as you are.

  18. It’s an awesome and inspiring post. Michael’s story is really inspiring and there are many bloggers out there who started their journey from scratch and many bloggers didn’t even know its called blogging.

  19. GREAT article! It really starts with changing your self-identity. This is everything I went through and am still going through. Thanks for this.

  20. A great post! It really inspires me to carry on, even though there’s so much work involved! I enjoy every minute of blogging and we’ll done for doing so well! Great stuff.

  21. A great post! It really inspires me to carry on, even though there’s so much work involved! I enjoy every minute of blogging and we’ll done for doing so well! Great stuff.
