If you waited till 2014 without a blog or personal online brand you are already late. However without any further delaying let’s make it a year you start blog that matters.
If you look at this blog, which I started in January 2013, I would say it was the best decision I took in early 2013. The blog gave me the opportunity to get to know so name interesting people while getting clients though email inquiries, which otherwise I would never to meet.
What are the excuses of not starting a Blog?
- Don’t know how to set up a Blog
- No time
- Don’t know what to write
- I’m waiting till I get my other things sorted
- There are so many people blogging, so I don’t want to do the same
- I can’t spend on a blog at the moment
If you have any of the above excuses, you are just putting things away, which might never happen. So try to make it a year you start your online journey. If you are reading this article now, you can see this gave me the opportunity to maybe get to know you. I would like to hear from you through this blog or simply at Facebook.

As I mentioned earlier, this blog helps me find new clients freely every month and it’s also been a great platform which helps me earn passive income from the content I publish every day. The very first thing I do everyday after meditation is writing 300+ word article and in most days it’s 1000 or more words, depending on the time and my energy flow.
