Thanks from my heart on behalf of talkandtalkers readers.
As a part of the formality, can you please tell our Readers a little about yourself?
Hello friends, Myself Vishal Sharma a web designer, online marketer, a part time blogger, and yeah a final year engineering student. Blogging is my passion and I had started it in 2011 just for fun and to earn some money online, as most of bloggers come to this field dreaming about. I currently have three website that I am working on and some other niche blogs. And I am currently working as business marketing manager in Cyber Defense & Intelligence, an ethical hacking institute at Chandigarh. I came to blogging field with my blog allbloggingways and will be starting an ecommerce website soon for our Indian Youth.
Do you think, blogging is a good alternative of regular Job? If yes then why?
Yeah, surely without any doubt it is. Blogging is a method which if taken seriously and with the right steps in mind can let you earn a large amount in small time. And also it can be a regular job by which you can earn sitting at home. But the main thing that blogging asks for is passion, patience and hard work. If these things are in you, then you can earn huge success in this field. I see lots of people coming to me daily for making new blogs and many of them don’t have patience in them, they want to earn as soon as they have started blogging, due to which they mostly don’t succeed in this field. So, I always recommend bloggers to keep patience in them and then they will surely don’t need any other job.
How many hours do you spend per day on your blog(s)?
In holidays, I work around 9-10 hours on my websites, whereas in college time it decreases to 3-4 hours a day. You can say in free time I am always on my websites.
Which blog which you follow regularly?
There is no such site I think as I don’t get time from my blogs to check any other blog regularly. But still if you will say that which are the blogs I often check they would be Shoutmeloud and bloggingtips.
List of Paid or Free Tools, you are using?
Well I use mainly tools like: Long tail Pro, Layerslider, SEOpressor and genesis framework themes mostly with plugins it contains. These are really helpful tools I must say when it comes to blogging.
Mistakes are always a part of life. Have you ever made mistakes as a newbie blogger? If yes, what were they and what lesson did you learn from them?
Yeah, there was a big mistake that I did when I started my blog allbloggingways, that was violate Google policies. I just sold some not authorized stuff on my website due to which my blog which was previously on blogger was deleted by Google. I had to migrate the backup to WordPress and also due to it I was banned from Google Adsense. Then after that I followed all policies of Google and never thought of doing something like that again, and then my website again started showing good results after hardwork of two months.
So, I would say always go by rules and keep hard work on.
According to you, what are the must use Plugins for a wordPress user?
I would say the must use plugins will be:
• SEO pressor or SEO by Yoast
• UpdraftPlus backup & Restore
• Bullet Proof Security
According to you, What’s the best and worst features of WordPress?
The best features I would say are a hell lots of plugins and easy customization. You can easily build up any type of website you want on WordPress. Security is also good if good plugins are used.
And yeah worst feature will be, if a plugin without proper study is installed it can provide illegal access to your website or can affect your website in one way or other.
But still WordPress is best I would say.
