Well its a personal theory of mine that a person can never reach the highest step of its success ladder. Each n every successful person must have gone through a number of hurdles, a great problems and yes indeed after climbing a lot of steps.
Same law acts here. A normal blogger makes out his blog and then he advertise for almost 6 to 7 months until a handsome amount of traffic starts visiting his blog.
But let me tell you a secret. Make your intentions pure. Don't blog with a mind of making money, blog with a mind of getting touch with other; share your ideas, showcase your abilities, discuss your interests and then the time that you'll spend in entertaining your hobby will return in terms of your reward.
And here lies a simple philosophy of mine
Its not the talent who makes you successful or a failure, its YOU.
