The journey started with Blogging in 2014

Started my first blog at blogger.com with the name hackking.blogspot.com later I changed it to www.techhacktweaks.com custom domain after 1 year. 

I got success there, after 2 years I have now almost 100K daily views on the blogger.com platform. But then suddenly Google deleted my Blog and remove blogger ( their service) from my account. Want to know Why? Visit the About us Page.

Actually, I was forced to do a job, I started working on 20th July 2016 and 8th of August at lunch-time, I was checking my previous day’s Sunday posts on mobile, and I found that this blog is no longer available. But there was nothing that I could do, I was in the office. When I got home, I started my PC and appealed to Google Blogger why my blog was deleted.

I didn’t receive any update from Google.***

I was not able to restrain myself

Then, I started reading more about WordPress, then I came to know what is the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org. And I bought hosting from Shared Hosting Plan for 1 year from Hostgator. This was the first time I saw cPanel, installing and setting up WordPress, and configure a domain name via hosting server, DNS, A and CName records, and more.

I set up all things correctly, but not completely as I should because I was new to this platform. I started a blog post from zero. This time I was unsuccessful because this time I had a job, no free time for daily blog posts. As I needed to upload 4-5 blog posts daily to reclaim the same traffic.

I quit this time***

And the same thing happened to me, the company closed because it was in partnership, all the employees including me had to leave the company on 22 October 2016.

I bought a new laptop on finance in August after starting a WordPress blog. So I had to start working to earn money as I was required to pay monthly installments.

But I didn't give up

I started learning new things, read a lot of articles, and now after a week, I was about to come back to the blog again with another niche. And again in three months November, December 2016, and January 2017 I have around 100K + pageviews per day even I was earning 40,000 thousand from January 2017. And I moved to a new host then because I was facing a website downtime issue regularly, and I bought new hosting from DigitalOcean 80$ per/month plan. It was good. 

Everything was going smoothly, and again due to a family dispute, I had to start working (looking for a Job). I joined a new company in April and continued till 31st July 2017. Then switched to New company from 1st August 2017.

Then I couldn’t focus on my Blog. 

And my all work messed up again, I lose not only my work, even all of the website traffic, website ranking once again.***

 I had to live everything just to focus on my job. 

Now all of you are thinking that I was making good money, I could leave all the family controversy to focus on my blog. I wish I could do that, but what we need to focus on is a peaceful mind, I used to be tense all the time. I wish I had the option to focus on my work. But i couldn’t.

कुछ चीजे ऐसी भी होती है जिसे आप छोड़कर भाग नहीं सकते चाहे कुछ भी हो, आपको उनके साथ ही चलना होगा या उनको साथ रखकर चलना होगा!! blogging में आप सबको पता है कि नियमित रूप से ब्लॉग पोस्ट करने पड़ते है बस वही continuity मैं नहीं दे पा रहा था कभी कुछ हो जाता तो कभी कुछ हो जाता!!मुझे किसी ने पूछा नहीं कि तुझे क्या करना है या तू क्या कर रहा है तुझे कुछ चाहिए, तो यकीं मानो मैं जरूर कहता कि मुझे डेली आर्टिकल्स post करने है मुझे शांति चाहिए मुझे blogger बनना है

I just didn't want to give up

This time I started YouTube Channel on 5th Feb. 2018, let me tell you how I worked at that time, I used to leave from the office at 6:30 pm, I used to take about 30 minutes, at home I took about seven in the evening. Used to reach around 7:00 PM. Completing all the tasks like dinner and I used to start my laptop around 9:30 in the evening and always look for new video content.

And the next day, when I used to go to the office, I used to do video editing and uploading, etc. in the bus, then I used to upload it, in this I started getting traffic of about 55 thousand per day in 3 to 4 months, my Google Adsense account was about to start in a few days, which means that I was going to start earning. ( I was, I’m best in to do SEO to get Website or Video’s ranking faster).

But then I made a big mistake, I told them (my office colleagues) about my YouTube channel, and they started laughing at me every day, in their laughter, I started to think that now I think I get ahead of them. I Will go, they will come back, I also did not upload the videos later. Here also no one said that you upload videos, meaning nobody supported me, and then I stopped uploading videos, again I started focusing on jobs.

I took the very big decision at a tough time

I continued the job, till September 2019, then I quit the job and this time I could not start a blog, because this time blogging takes at least 6 months to get 50K – 100K + daily page views.

When I left the job, there were only 16 thousand in my bank account, including 2 lakh 10 thousand loans which I had to repay within 6 months !!

That is why the title of this section is “I took a big decision in difficult times“. But now I am happy that now I am at least a self-employer, now I am not working for anyone else. Now no one can ask me where I was during office hours, no one can ask that I cannot walk anywhere during office hours, but now I want to go wherever I want, no matter where I am. I can work

I couldn’t because I needed money and this time I wanted to save at least 2 lakhs so that I could depend on it for at least the first 6 months. Only then can I focus on blogging. I started working as a freelancer, I started looking for Foreign clients on Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc. looking for a business website. Luckily I started receiving projects regularly.

And now some of my regular clients are still sending me regular work, so I couldn’t focus on blogging this time either, or I can’t even focus on blogging. I have to choose one, either I have to keep working for clients or start a new journey with blogging.
