Hello Friend! Atish here, this is time for the second interview of “Coffee With Atish”, This time we have interviewed Mr. Bilal Ahmad, a very talented blogger and the developer of the theme “Techmaish“.
Atish: Welcome to TechTricksWorld. There is no need of introduction as your name is enough but as the part of formality tell a little about you?
Bilal: Thank You Atish for interviewing me on your blog. My name is Bilal Ahmad, a 22 years old blogger, pursuing MBA in Banking and Finance. I joined blogging community in 2009 and now it became my passion.
Atish: When and how you came to blogging ?
Bilal: In 2009 I started blogging and till that time I was involved in PTC (Paid To Click) programs. My first blog was on Blogspot.com for the promotion of these PTC program. Actually I wasted lots of my time on these kind of programs, but then I realized that I should jump into blogging industry, because many people are earning good money from it. Apart from making money from blogging I am now enjoying it very much.
Atish: How many blogs you are you handling and which was the first one?
Bilal: The first blog i started on WordPress is http://www.bnsofts.com [where I share giveaways promotions for kaspersky lab products]. Currently I have 4 blogs, TechMaish.com, Bnsofts.com, WPPluginsBlog.net and Buyinpakistan.info.
I have some other blogs but that are for some specific products where i promote those products for commission. [Affiliate Blogs]
Atish: How do you manage your studies and blogging?
Bilal: I am a person who love freedom and I don’t want to do any thing forcefully OR if i say i am little disorganized. Disorganized in this sense that whenever my mood is to blog, I just blog and whenever my mood is to study then i just study.
After completion of my MBA I will be jumping into blogging industry as a full time blogger and then my work will become organized. As in businesses you need to manage, plan, organize and evaluate things in proper ways.
Atish: Many bloggers find it very difficult to bring traffic to their site, in your opinion which is the best way for traffic generation?
Bilal: In my opinion they best way to bring traffic to a blog is “The Topic of the Blog OR the Niche”. No matter how much effort you put into creating backlinks, writing articles, commenting on blogs etc, but the important thing is that what you are giving to the visitors. If you are giving some thing very valuable then people will start visiting your blog after every hour. As a example you can see my Bnsofts.com blog where I have 3500 registered email subscribers waiting for my every new post.
Atish: Is blogging for you just a passion or a medium of earning too? Does it help you to earn enough cash to quit a 9 to 5 day job?
Bilal: Frankly speaking the first motive was to earn money from blogging, but with the passage of time it become my passion and now i really enjoy it.
Yes this is what I mention above that after completion of my MBA I am going to take blogging as a full time job. The reason is that as a MBA student I believe that blogging is a very profitable, long term, entertaining and risk free business.
Atish: What is the happiest moment of your blogging life?
Bilal: Hmm I need to thing about this one, because happiness has lots of definitions. It could be because of monetary rewards, brand establishment, recognition etc, however I should say that for me it was that moment when people started interacting with me with a new recognition (TechMaish).
Atish: What are your future plans for your life and your blogs?
Bilal: I am waiting for the completion of my MBA Degree and after that I have lots of plans in mind.
Atish: Who has impacted you the most in your blogging career, and how?
Bilal: Every blogger from whom i learned any thing in my blogging career impacted me in a very positive direction. I learned different new things from every blog i visited. Thanks to all bloggers who have work hard to provide valuable tips and information to the reset of the internet users.
Atish: Would you like to give any message or tips to new bloggers?
Bilal: The only thing in blogging is that you should not automate your processes. Work manually, wait and get the result for long term. The shorter you get the result, the shorter its life span will be, the more time it take to deliver result, for long period it will benefit you.
Atish: Would You like to share your favorite quotation?
Bilal: “Two things define your success in life. The way you manage when you have nothing And The way you behave when you have every thing”
Atish: What do you think about TechTricksWorld.com?
Bilal: First of all thank you so much for using the theme developed by me. Your blog is looking awesome, not because you are using TechMaish theme, but because of the Niche and Theme Relevancy.
