My Blogging Journey
I knows nothing about Blogging couple of years ago. Because I am Home Maker and when I used to be free from my other Chores, I used to Search about ‘How to Make Money Online‘ something like this and still I remember I joined so many Affiliate Companies, but don’t know what to do with them. Then one of them was MaxBounty and I started to promote their Products by reading on the Internet from here and there, only Surveys on Free Sites. When somebody fill that form, I used to get for one Survey $2, $3 for some others. I used to promote 2-3 types of Surveys and sometimes I used to make $2 for a Day and sometimes $4 a day and there was one day only when I made maximum $12 for a day and still I remember, that day I was so happy and excited for it.
I promoted MaxBounty Surveys for a year or so and the same time I Joined Squidoo. Again knows nothing How to write and What to Write on Squidoo.
By reading Squidoo Guidelines, I started to write about Gardening, because I love to do Gardening and my first Article was Published and so on many more articles were published on Squidoo. Within couple of months, I used to have 42 Published Lenses on Squidoo.
At the same time I was learning from others’ Lenses(Articles) and learned a lot at that Free Platform by Reading and by Writing.
I think about in 7-8 months, I made under $100. Yes that $100 is now Making around $1000 Monthly and in some months a lot More. For example in Last October, 2016 I made $1500, in November, 2016 due to Christmas was very close, I made $2500. Here I am not giving exact Amount, jut approximately, because I am not interested to write about My Earnings. So just giving this rough idea, because I know by my own experience that it Inspires New Bloggers not to Quit and Keep on Blogging with their hard work patiently and Consistently.
And that time I created my PayPal Account, because Squidoo used to Pay only through PayPal. The beauty of their Paying System was, even you have made $1 at that month with Squidoo, it goes to your Paypal Account.
About Squidoo Wikipedia,
“Squidoo was revenue-sharing article writing site. Articles were called “lenses”. In 2010, the site consisted of 1.5 million lenses as of october 2010. On August 15, 2014, founder Seth Godin announced that Hubpages had Acquired Squidoo”.
Founder of Squidoo was Seth Godin and it was founded in 2005.
Then the day came when Squidoo become a part of Hubpages and I was lucky that I moved my articles to Blogger Blog, despite of moving to Hubpages, because there was Plan that Squidoo users could move their lenses to Hubpages and start earning there too, same like Squidoo.
I started Two different Blogs on Blogspot, one of them was about Bedding Sets and the other one was about Food Information. Both Blogs started to get Good amount of Traffic (from Organic Search Engines) and I think within 6-7 months I got my first Check over $100 and by reading one Post, that your Domain should look Professional, I made blunder Mistake and I changed my Domains of both Blogs to Custom Domains.
All Traffic was stopped to my both Blogs and I didn’t know what happened.
Being frustrated I stopped working for my both blogs and again I was lucky that I saved one of them, which was for Bedding Sets.
Ease Bedding was Launched
After the gap of over a year, again there was urge to write something and that time Ease Bedding was launched, which is now making around $1000 monthly.
It was started on HostGator and after three months I moved to SiteGround, where it is growing with more and more Visitors.
When I started with Hostgator, I was absolutely Novice to WordPress and because there was Sale going on for Season Promotion, without knowing anything at all, I started two Blogs with two different Accounts.
When I started to get two Bills from two Accounts, I submitted the Ticket to make them one Account and they asked around $40 fee for that. So for not to Pay them this fee, I cancelled one Account include the domain as well.
And I moved Ease Bedding Dot com to SiteGround.
Today I love SiteGround due to their New Techonology and Good Service.
Earning from Blogging
This is the most Interesting part of my Blogging Life. I am so happy that I was Homemaker and in my free time I used to find these Online ways to Make Money.
No doubt it took a long time to found the best Method, which is Affiliate Marketing and I am quite happy for my learning process through experiences.
When I’m free from my other Chores, I spend all time for my Blogging Business and now I have Big Dreams for it. My family is so happy for my Blogging. Even some family friends, who see my Posts on facebook and they ask me, what I do?
It was my choice not to work and even I hate to work for somebody.
Today I’m my own Boss, even I’m not making that much Money right now, but believe me it is a lot for me, which I never thought even that I can make Money Online.
Yes now I can see that there is potential in Blogging Business.

First five months of Creating Ease Bedding Blog, I used All in One Seo Pack Plugin and I haven’t seen any positive results from it and finally I deactivated it and then tried Yoast Seo for WordPress Plugin. It also didn’t gave me some special performance and after using it almost for a month or so, I decided not to use it as well.
Even I tried Squirrly.co for couple of weeks, still I was not satisfied from its results.
“I use Squirrely every time I create a new post.”
recommended by – Neil Patel, Top Web Influencer. Co-Founder of KissMetrics.
Despite of recommended by Neil Patel, even I didn’t see some good results from it and I believe to try things and then only trust them, not by other’s recommendation.
Yes some stuff, which have good Reviews and Good Reputation in the Market, I try and get good results, then definitely I use it, but some despite of having Good Reviews, don’t work for me, then I don’t use them.
Finally I stopped using all these Seo Plugins almost a year ago and for a month my Blog was getting the same Traffic( few visitors for a day). But I chose not to use any SEO Plugin and I was Stick with it.
After a month, all of sudden Organic Traffic became Double and since then my Traffic is increasing, means Sales are Increasing and of course Revenue is increasing.
No Meta Description
I also stopped using Meta Description for my Ease Bedding Blog and even I don’t use Meta Description for my Blogging Creation.
This all is my own Learning experience by trying different things, some worked, some didn’t worked.
When I started Ease Bedding Blog, I was Hobby Blogger and with time I, learned my own Ways to bring Organic Traffic and Social Media Traffic to my Blog without spending any Money on Ads.
Everybody doesn’t have the ability to spend Money for ads to bring Traffic, so he can use my Strategy to bring Traffic and it is; Invest More time by writing quality Content, means More Articles, Comments on Others’ Blogs, Social Sharing, Few Plugins as I already wrote on the Topic. That’s it, yes rest patience and keep on working with Patience.
By seeing the Success in my Bedding Blog, I planned to start another Blog and that is this one here-Blogging Creation Dot Com. Here I can write my experiences, what I learned by making so many Mistakes along the way, what worked for me and what doesn’t worked for me.
Still I am not expert Blogger, who can teach you everything. But yes, what I knows, that I will try to share on this Blog.
A Little About Me
I love Bright Shiny Mornings more than anything Else. Since I know, I get Up 5 O’Clock in the Morning. So I’m Morning Person. Every New Morning brings Joy and Confidence in me to do something Good in daily life or in future.
My favorite Routine for Daily life is, One and half an hour Yoga, Meditation and Walk in Summer.
The Power of Patience and Persistence
As you can see from my whole story that things didn’t happened in a day or so. It took me a long time to reach at the Stage, where I am Making around $1000 monthly, because I never learned this whole system in any School or College.
Yes, Now I can see a lot of Potential, that’s why I started this Blogging Creation Blog.
Please Stay away from those people, who teach to Make Money with Quick Money Making Schemes. And I don’t believe that there is any way, where you can become Rich in a Day or so(except Lottery Winning and someone get some Hereditary Property)
In my opinion, Success comes with experience, hard work and of course Patience.
I am hard working Person, who believe in Hardworking. Believe me, definitely you will get Sweet Fruits for your hard work, may be sooner or later.
So please do not waste your time and Money by trying Quick Money Making Schemes, because I read in one comment that one person spent thousands of Dollars for Creating Affiliate Marketing Site from somebody. Then I asked him, why he spent so much Money and you know what he said. He said, “Jaswinder I was stupid”. So don’t let people to Cheat you.
Spend your hard Earned Money Wisely.
If you’ve patience and you love to share something, what you know or want to write about, then Start Your Blog Today!
Example of a Chinese Bamboo Tree
Like any other Plant, Growth of the Chinese Bamboo Tree requires Nurturing With Water, Fertile Soil and of course Sunshine.
Despite of getting this all good stuff, there is no Visible Signs of Growth and even in the Second year of this Bamboo Tree, there is no Growth above the Soil.
Third and Fourth year, still no Signs of Growth.
Finally in Fifth year, This Chinese Bamboo Tree Grows 80 Feet Tall in only Six Weeks.
The same Principle is True for all Human Beings. We need patience, not only in Blogging Business, but every field of our life. Then Rewards, we’ll get are Enormous.
So Success is like a Chinese Bamboo Tree.
The example here of Bamboo Tree teaches us that we should Stay Focused and Continue to Believe in What we’re Doing, even that time, when we don’t see Immediate Results or Rewards of our hard work.
I know it is Tough, but Patience pays a Big Rewards, I have seen this in my life, not only in Blogging Business, but everywhere else too.
Life is not like a sweet song, Ups Downs comes in Life. If we stay Calm and Relax in Tough Times, then it passes Easily, but if you Cry, it will lasts longer. It is in your Hand, how you want to see the thing, Half Glass Full or Half Glass Empty. When you’re Smiling in all situations, you’ll Enjoy your life more, believe me!
So Count your Blessings all the time and keep on moving, everything will be Okay!
Experimental Tips & Tricks
Starting Ease Bedding Blog is one of the best Choice I’ve ever made. So Below are some experimental Tips and Tricks, which I learned along the Way in my Blogging Journey, which is helping my Blog to bring More Traffic and Generate More Money.
For example: More Traffic=More Orders/More Sales=More Money*
But it is not a formula, which we can learn by reading or memorising, especially in Blogging Business, actually everywhere, but here in Blogging Business, we learn by experience. Most part of it is by experience. I can say by experience is 70% and yes 30% is by reading other Successful Blog Posts.
What do I mean Successful Blogs?
Means which Blogs are getting good amount of Traffic and then making Good amount of Money as well.
Create a Blog & Turn it into Profitable Business
- Build Trust: Give Customers Reason to Believe your Recommendations by producing Valuable Content, which they are looking for. I try my best to write at least one post each Week and even sometimes 3-4, so Customers can get Fresh Content to come and Visit my Blog again and again.
- Add Products: When your Blog is Selling some Products, for example, my Ease Bedding, is having all kinds of Bedding Sets, then try to add as many as you can with Good Reviews, so Customers can Save their time and Buy quickly without wasting their time. Here you’re helping them to Buy Good Products, which you already selected for them and it is your Job to give them more Stuff. For example; I try to add more and more Stuff in my Blog Posts to make their Shopping Easy and at least with 4*
- Save Customers Money: Do not list too expensive Products and not even so Cheap, because there are Customers, who don’t want to spend so much money, but they want to Buy something on Christmas and on Holidays. When you list the Products that are Reasonable Price, then you’ll get More Orders.
- Save Customers Time: By recommending Good Products with Good Reviews, I Save Customers Time, which they can spend for Meaningful and Legitimate Jobs in day to day routine or something Special.
- Product Solutions: Actually when a Customer reaches to your Website to find some Product either through Organic Search or Social Media, he find, what he was looking for, then your Website is Solving his problem to find that particular product. This way you get more Customers and of course it will Increase your Sales and then Revenue. This is Product Solution, means listing those products, which Customers are looking for.
- Advantage of More Articles: When you’ve more Articles(Posts/Pages) on our Blog, then Customers can stay for longer time on our site and then there is Advantage of having more related Content, means More Sales, means More Money and this will also decrease Bounce Rate of our Site.
- Pick your Niche: Your Niche is so important Topic, which you want to Blog about. It could be; Parenting, Recipes, Luggage, and like mine Bedding Sets.
- Do Blogging as a Hobby in Beginning: In the Beginning of launching your first Blog, do it as a Hobby and enjoy while Blogging
