Today with me is another Indian blogger. Bloggers in India are common. But this one, is yet one in the million. The CEO, of Onside. Small blog but an approach to one step ahead, in this technological era. So lets converse with this pro-teenaged blogger.
So. would you like our readers give an informal introduction of yours?
First of all, I would like to thank you, for the honour of being here to give you my interview. I assure that I will answer all your questions. Talking about myself, I am Rohith VR, 18 year old passionate blogger and 12th grade student from India. I own a little yet interesting web Community aka Blog – Onside.
Well! When we ask “How did they got into blogging?”, majority of them reply as due to passion, inspiration and by chance. What pretext do you have chosen for this inevitable question to be asked?
For me it came in form of inspiration, many bloggers earn doing what they love doing. Initially when I created, Onside.in, I took blogging as a solemn job, which requires attention. More over, I believed my passion for blogging will enable me to convey my opinions.
So, how far you have reached in achieve your aims?
It is not a long tale now. About 1 year back, I initiated my presence at blogosphere, with a free blog at Blogger. It didn’t took the town red, but it was a learning stage for me to enthrall towards blogging. And the consequence is, the emergence of Onside.in, in this rapidly and relentlessly growing blogosphere.
And when it is about how successfully I have achieved my aims, I have gradually made success and got what I actually deserve, and I am satisfied in it with bit of voracious appetite to progress further more. But in this bustling pursuit, I won’t forget to give the credence to my inspiration, Jothilingam. I was quite how mesmerized by the way he markets, manages and socialize with the readers. This act as an immense guide for me, when I started my blogging career. Well, at stages I seem to be uncertain of my ambitions, I feel it is the miracle of fate that has made me come across blogging.
Another questions that follows up into my mind, do you really groove while blogging. Many bloggers often complaint that they lost their interest in blogging after seeing no progress and at times really slow progress. Did you pass through this stage or were you on of those lucky charms?
Well certainly I am not among those so-called “lucky charms”. At initial stage, I admit that I found blogging to be a really tough job. But they say, hard work is the key to success. I was determined and passionate about blogging, so I started to publish what people demanded. With the pace of time, when readers were secure, I began to post bit what I really loved.
Sir, what sort of believe do you have or perhaps distinctive importance between content and design. These days newbies tend to go for a lot of accentuating on layout and designs. Any suggestion for newbies?
I believe the design is the most important as it fascinates people and lure them to spend more time on your site, while cherishing every moment they are reading at your blog.
Which of the themes for WordPress are your all-time favourite? Would you recommend some of them to newbies or fans of yours, those who look before your suggestion?
Apart from the fact, that “Content is the King”, I believe to use a exotic and picturesque theme. On the basis of my experience, I always recommend Themes Junkies’s, Daily Theme. In my view, it is a one of the finest piece of art, being SEO-friendly and having a sleeky look.
Which plugins at WordPress proved to be saviour to you?
Well if we quote “Content is the King” then “SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is the Queen”. Getting your site optimized in such a particular way that search engines enlist you, and drive all traffic to your site. These are some of the life-saver plugins, which I recommend.
- All in one SEO Pack - A really amazing tool. Helped me to upheave my site traffic.
- W3 Total Cache or WP-Super Cache
- Google XML Sitemaps
- Quick Adsense
All of them are quite amazing.
These days many bloggers are uprising. But some of them are daunted for the slow progress, which it leads and opted for plagiarism. This is at exponential rate. What would you comment pass on to such bloggers?
I would rather ask them to work hard. And be patient, if you deserve the success, you will surely get it. I being in their shoes, understand how difficult it is but I ask them to have hope and confidence, with determination and success is yours.
In your sight, what sort of blogging scope is there in future?
Well I believe that it has a great potential in future. Understanding that, at Onside.in, we are soon implementing a way through freelancer authors will be having more opportunities to post in. Right now, we accept gust posts.
Do you have any words for Bloggerine and the CEO of it, Ramsha Afaq?
Well their whole new way approach to blogging is fabulous and amazing. Good luck with future.
