I am a very fun loving guy. I have just completed my BSC(IT) and soon going to start my MCA.
Q. How you enter in Blogging World?
Ans: I was searching for a Software API on a Facebook group called PHP and Dot Net Group there I came to know a guy from delhi name AtishRanjan, who referred me to another guy for this type of query then I asked that guy about the API and luckily I got that too… after 2 to 3 days again I pinged Atish for just simple conversation and I asked him what he do and etc. Came to know that he is blogger..never heard this term After then I showed some interest on it and launched my first blogspot blog then after 40 days I deleted and bought my own domain ITC and started my journey.
Q: What you think about the future of Blogging in India Specially for new Bloggers.
Ans: Future Blogging? I would love to say Future Career .. . It will be another course in all universities. I have seen some guys who are blogging only for 1 year and if you will compare with MCA and MSC Student then you will get the difference. Bloggers are buzzing with lots of new ideas. I have conducted some seminar on Blogging and have seen that most of the young guys are so interested when they hear that we can earn money from blogging.

Except those publicly revealed blog I have some niche sites as well , hope you won’t ask me the name of those sites :D.
Q: What you think Blogging is a Full time or Part Time work?
Ans: I have been seeing that for the last couple of years it was a trend for student. Most students are very active so for that it would be as part-time. But for me Blogging is a Full time work as I have depended on it fully it brings me passive income and still I am expanding my online venture. So at least for me it is full time.. . .
Q: There are very less women in India who are professional bloggers,how can we Increase the number and also give some advice to upcoming Women Pro Bloggers in India.

Yeah here I want to share some advice, women/young girls should be active on social network sites. For that reason they are not able to get exposer what they are doing.

Q: Do you think Investment is Important in blogging?
Ans: How can we expect returns without investments? Simple business funda is First Invest then Earn. When I entered into blogging I didn’t think that I could earn. Today I am very happy that the investment was worth it and still I am getting returns from that investment.
Q: Share some changes in your life, before and after blogging.
Ans:Yeah Blogging really changed my life.
- I make money $$$$.

Q: Indian Bloggers are doing quite well in Blogging world, but still we are far away from Many famous bloggers in this world, How we can Improve this any Suggestions for Upcoming Bloggers in India?
Ans: Well most people in India don’t consider working online a proper way of making a career, which is wrong. One can be a blogging guru and become a big entrepreneur just through blogging. We need to change the way people think about blogging in this Country. Not only does an engineer or a doctor earn, but so can a blogger.
Q: What are the main sources of your Earning in Blogging?
Ans: Nishant my main source of earning is mainly Affiliate, Paid Posts and Adsense. But when I entered into the blogging arena that time I dint have any idea about Affiliate marketing so I started my earning with Paid post and Adsense after then I joined some groups, forums and found some awesome people engaged with Affiliate marketing who are earning lots of money from Affiliate and I thought to myself if they can do why not me? So I gave my whole effort on Affiliate learned so many affiliate blogs, gave my time to some forum threads and still I am learning you can say earning with learning ;).
Q: Thank You for Sharing Your Views and Ideas with us.
Ans: Thank you so much for this honor Nishant. I would love to connect your readers.
