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)

Banned Indian Books

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high; Where knowledge is free; Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls; Where words come out from the depth of truth... Few days back when I came to know about a book on an Indian Business Barron on the Banned Indian Books’ List, the first thing that came in my mind were the lines from Tagore . What an irony, we live in a country, whose forefathers have dreamt about a nation without fear, about a nation with right to speech, right to knowledge; and where the Government enjoys the “privilege” to “freely” ban the books, censor what it feels offensive! Wikipedia describes Banned books as the books whose free access is not permitted. Further it says that the practice of banning books is just another form of censorship, and often has political, religious or moral motivations. In our country, banning books have got its history since the British rule days. In fact, few of the Books

...not just Right, it's My time to visit Melbourne NOW!

‘ Sir, wake up, it’s Victoria ’ some sort of voice-management, of course with due courtesy, and it banged on my ears again ‘ Sir? It’s Victoria, didn’t you want to get down here… ’ Fighting the universal conspiracy, I tried opening my eyes and listening to the conductor simultaneously,   yeaah multi-tasking ! ‘ Oh, yeah, thank you! Thanks !’ a formal smile, rubbed shoulders (it wasn’t crowded, I was yet sleepy) rubbing my eyes I stepped down of the tram. “ Wooo….Man! Where I am? This is not Kolakata, forget it, this is not even India !” I stepped down apparently from Kolkata Tramway at   Maidan   near Victoria Memorial, but it wasn’t the same. There was no   maidan , no typical Kolkata traffic, no Victoria Memorial and it was something else. Fishy! No it wasn’t fishy. I looked back at Tram, it wasn’t like Tram either. Highway 31 Bikers' Restaurant ‘ Have I had grass? No, neva! So, how did I disembark a metro when I picked up a tram an hour ago? ’ I

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’
