Starting a blog was the best decision of my life.

Today 90% of my monthly income comes from blogging.

As of now, i have more than 10+ websites , driving in total around 3,000,000 visitors/month and making me 10 Lacs-15 Lacs each month.

You can start a blog about any topic: be it guitar, dogs, cooking and anything else.

So lets say if your website is about Guitar then some articles might be “How to learn guitar”, and “What are guitar chords” etc etc. So make a list of 20-30 such questions that you think a beginner or a newbie guitarist might face. You can also check other guitar related websites for some inspiration.
  • Step-6:¬†Try to maintain a schedule. So make sure you are adding atleast 2-3 articles each week. Also each must be high quality, easy to understand (add examples, images , videos etc ), ¬†atleast 2000 word long, and it should be comprehensive and must cover everything about the title of the article.

The best part is that even in your sleep you will be making money. For example: even if i go for a one month long vacation, i will make the same amount of money each month just because my websites are working on autopilot. Thats the power of blogging
