Earning from Blogging - Do you?

How will you feel, when your Google AdSense application is being repeatedly disapproved for some allegedly “Objectionable content” and a friend, who has just started blogging on your suggestion, tell you that is earning in 5digits from blogging? Exactly, that’s the way I felt. ;-/

Atyush (name changed), is working in an IT company. Few days back, while chatting we started talking about social networking and all. He was impressed by my travelogues *shy*. So, on that note I suggested him to give his awesome humor writing skills some online audience. Within a few weeks, through FB, Tweeting and all other methods to reach-out, his followers list overtook mineL. All was good, at least fine, unless we talked last Saturday, when he told me that his blog is earning Rs. 5,000-10,000 per month.

I was like “Awwww”!!! That very fact was like a jaw-opener for me. Reason, I have been trying for days to get AdSense activated and all that am receiving are apologies mails every time quoting a new reason – Unacceptable site content, Page Type etc. Even other Ad-services too disapproved my application for unknown reasons. And, now this fella, who learnt ABC of blogging from me only, is boasting his 4-figures earning from his all-nonsense blog! Poor me! :(
He was so excited about his endeavour in web-advertising arena that I didn’t have to show my anxiety, and he started telling complete story himself. So, as I told earlier, he works in an IT-company; so he obviously has a 12± hours’ office life. There, beside his routine work, he gets 2-3 no-work-at-all hours daily. In that time, he thinks, writes, improvises and publishes his posts. So, about 20% of what he earns as an IT engineer is actually for blogging from office! I was like, Wow! So, that’s the way you earn, tabhi main sochun (that’s what I was thinking)! I was so relaxed, that he actually figured out changing mood and color of my face and asked what happened. ‘Ahh! Nothing, I thought earning the way that Yaro earns. But, really yar, I wonder how much of we bloggers use our office time to write our personal blogs!’
What’s your story? Do you write your posts in your very own leisure, or your paid office timing? Hmmmm, let me confess, to some extent, I do; do you?

(Disclaimer: Writer of this post didn’t earn any penny for the post; and that all he had earned from blogging is a BlogAdda-Pringoo Tee)

Riders of the Nation of a Billion - Dimensions and Horizons

Incidentally I wrote a post of my tranformation from just around the corner corporate junkie into a Rider (for sure, still gradually) few days ago. Now, here are the Indibloggers with a Contest for the Bikers of the Nation with Castrol guys .  Evolving Biker Code of the Nation  When you look at the scenario of Biking in a general sense, you would be attracted by the road-rowdies and rookies who ride to spread nuisance and are mostly acknowledged for their deeds by the newspaper. Hooligans may be the right word. But, once you get involved with the passion, you would be able to see how the passion of Biking, or rather Riding, is evolving in the country where 2-wheelers over-power 4-wheelers by scores of galactic height, but have never earned respect on highways just coz they are the smallest-speeding machine there! I would try to let you through the Indian Riders tale, so that you  be able to appreciate how the riders of the Country are working, though in a segregative way

An evening in the Chilika Lake

( This post has been published in TheViewspaper as The Paradise called Chilika ) This year seems to be much more happening than I expected. I realized it when I got an invitation from a senior colleague to attend his marriage at Bhubaneshwar. Hidden was another invitation to revisit the Puri- beach and also the Chilika Lake. I hadn’t still come out of the hangover of my pan-India ride , when the date to fly to the City of Temples knocked at doors. Packing the very morning of departure with least pairs of casuals and 3sets of party wears, I joined Kaustav and Abhimanyu bhaiya on our tour de Chilika and Puri, also the Odiya Wedding. Chilika Lake is the largest coastal lagoon in India and the second largest in World. It is an essentially shallow brackish water lagoon on the east coast, spread over the districts of Puri, Khurda and Ganjam of Odisa state. The lake, popularly known as Chilka, was designated the first Indian Wetland of International importance under the Ramsar

Trekking Ghansoli Gawli Dev (Parsik) Hill

It’s been there for geological ages, we have been looking at it for last about 4years and I have been planning to trek it since a long time. Finally, few weeks back, we trekked the Ghansoli Hill. Ghansoli Hill is located at the eastern boundary of Ghansoli town, behind our office complex at RCP. The hill or better hillock is a part of small range that separates Kalyan and Navi Mumbai towns. A search on Google Map returns with a name Parsik Hill for it, though there is one more rather famous Parsik Hill in Navi Mumbai. We also found a NewsArticle , that talks about NMMC plans to develop Nature Awareness Centre at this hills and calls it Gawli Dev Hill. Here, we would be calling it Ghansoli Hill . I asked my colleague about it and he readily agreed. The very next Sunday we did it with another friend. We weren't aware of the route. All we knew is that a Central Road runs along the western edge of the hill and can be reached through the Vashi-Mhape road. We later found that there’
