Blog : Why I’m Doing This

Starting a blog is a new experience to me. When I started to blog, google Adsense was my core motivation. Yes, to earn money by giving a little bit space for google advertising. I’ve read a lot of successful stories about how blogging can earn you six figure salary. Even that was not my real ambition, I was still thrilled that how writing a simple post like this 4-5 times a week can actually earn someones a steady income. That is not possible but it’s still a far-fetched dream at least to a nooblogger like me. When I was writing a post, using expensive keywords is one of my top priority.
That was it until I realized how much satisfied I was when some of my miniscule circle of readers said that my blog is somehow informative and beneficial to them. Even looking at the climbing visitors graph is worth it for me to spend my time in my blogging hobby. Now, to know that I am contributing my small part in the world of blog is incomparable to getting a dollar or two from adsense.
These are the links that somehow inspire me to blogosphere:
