MSS Articles - A Look Back to 2018

Hey there, welcome back to my personal blog. I am Madhusudan Somani and in this post, I am gonna write about the year of 2018 for my professional blog MSS Articles.

I have already written an article about how I started my blogging life. After half an year of unsuccessful blogging, I started a new blog MSS Article on 24 January 2018. And in December 2018, I finally reached a state which I wished for MSS Article while buying its domain from GoDaddy. I have shared the starting phase of my blogging on this page.

Starting with random writing, now I write Websites and Applications Reviews, How-To Guides and Articles related to the Internet on my professional blog. And for other random thoughts, I started this personal blog. I write new articles on Mondays and Fridays on MSS Articles and on this personal blog (MSS Blogs) on Sundays. And this is the last Sunday of 2018 and also the last article of this blog.

There were several phases in my blogging life. Sometimes I felt proud about my blog, but sometimes I got frustrated also. There are many phases when I could not get the expected views on my blog. Sometimes I get bored from blogging. But whenever I had any of that situation, there was happening something good for my blog. So that I haven't stopped blogging till now.

I got support from my friend circle and family. They, directly and indirectly, helped me to make MSS Articles better. Other than those, everyone has helped me by reading, commenting, liking and sharing my blog with their circle.

My friends, Shashank Varma, Rachit Raj, Prem Prakash, Prashant Kumar and many more helped me to get more views, and ideas for my blog. The best motivation for blogging comes from my friends. I got a titles of "Blogger" and "MSS Article" in my friend circle.
My teachers, Anita Mam and Nafees Sir, Santosh Sir's interaction with my blog also helped me to get motivated.

I also met some blogger friends, who work in the same field like mine, Rahul Singh, Rahul Chaudhary and Pramod Saharan. Now will work on making more connections in 2019.

I got a first review request by Fotor Photo editor. After that, I started getting review requests from different companies, to review their product. I write their review but sometimes I need to reject them because I don't want to write false reviews just for money.

With a little fluctuation, the graph of MSS Articles is always went upward in 2018. And I will try my best to get it to increase more. From getting 100-200 views rarely per month in beginning this year, now MSS Articles is getting 700+ views at the end of 2018, mostly from Google Search.

It has also featured in one of the biggest bloggers directories in India - IndiBlogger, A bookmarking tool Pocket. That were great experiences. There are many other platforms which helped MSS Articles to get authority and views, some of them are Twitter, Facebook, Quora, Google Plus, Reddit etc.

Now in 2018, I have completed the first short goal for MSS Article of getting 500+ views per day. And in 2019, I have to focus on the brand authority of MSS Articles. This year of 2019 can be a struggling year for me, but with your love and support, I am sure that I will able to pass that challenge.

Happy New Year.

Thank You
Madhusudan Somani.

Good Idea Always Comes from A Busy Mind

Have you ever tried to think about any great idea for your business or anything that matters to you?

I have done it so many times. I am a blogger and I always think how to make my professional blog better. What I found is that. almost every time the ideas I get was either those which I rejected before or might not be that much better.

But I always tried my best to get the best ideas. Even I got some ideas which helped me to grow my blog.

I am an engineering student, and the month of December is our examination month. I am currently in 2nd year (3rd semester). And since my last two exams, I observed one thing, that is, I get excellent ideas in these months(exams months) which directly and indirectly helped me to grow my blog.

Those ideas look great but I have to be busy in exam preparation. I can not apply some of the ideas right at that time, so I have time to plan everything that how I will apply those.

And as we all know,
A good idea with a great planning always gives better results.
So finally I come to the conclusion that to have a good idea, I have to be busy.
And I thought to apply this key point to my daily life (in my studies and blogging).

I tried to be busy. I write two articles on my professional blog in a week. One is on Monday and another one is on Friday. And on Sunday on this blog, which is my personal blog.

I started answering questions on Quora. After 5 days of continues use, now I am getting answer requests daily. Which again made me busy.

This busy-ness helped me to learn faster for my exams and also helped me to write better content on my blog with new, interesting and productive ideas. And finally, I got benefited completed just by being busy.

So I can definitely say that Good Ideas Always Comes from A Busy Mind.

And one tip I can give is to keep a diary with yourself, whether it can be physical or digital. So you can easily jot down the ideas which come in your mind in your busy schedule. Which you can implement later.

But don't ignore the power of intentional thinking. Only being busy is not enough. You have to think about the business sometimes in your free time, to get a better Idea later in your mind. If you don't even think about that, then there is no chance that you will get an idea in your mind.

So Intentional Thinking is Essential.

You can apply this to your professional and daily life and definitely, this will benefit you.
What are your thoughts about Good Ideas and Being Busy?

Blogging is not just Writing! It is Much More

Blogging is not just Writing!

I started blogging in 2017. I started blogging because I wanted to see my online presence and I loved to write articles, guides, and reviews.

My first blog was Enhance the Life I used to write anything on that blog. I did that in 2017 and then in January 2018, I deleted that blog. Again started a new blog - MSS Articles, which is currently my primary blog. Initially, I was repeating the same mistake which I did in my previous blog.

I followed some top bloggers, I followed their tactics along with mine, and I believed in me and by constantly writing content, now I am able to attract more than 17000+ views per month which are gradually increasing.

In my blogging life of one and a half year, I learned a lot more about blogging. And can definitely say that "Blogging is not just Writing! It is Much More".

Here are the things which a blogger has to do other than writing:

  • The first thing is Planning. A blogger has to make a plan for publishing and promotion of articles.
  • We need to write almost all articles in a selected niche to build authority. We just can't write anything there.
  • We need to invest a lot of time in promotion of our articles.
  • We need to update our old articles' as per current data.
  • We need to do On-Page and Off-Page SEO (Search Engine Optimization) on our blog.
  • Along with SEO we also need to do SMO (Social Media Optimization).
  • We need to do social and internet bookmarking of our articles to be found.
  • We need to work on Clickbait technique for more clicks.
  • We need to make our profile trustable. By joining discussions on other blogs and sites.
  • We need to build backlinks to be trusted by Search Engine (Google).
  • We just can't write and move on, we need to respond to all the valuable comments in our blogs whether the article is new or old.
  • We need to check for the credibility and plagiarism of the work. We can't copy other's content.
  • Sometimes we need to do Guest Blogging to build Authority and Backlinks.
  • We need to keep an eye on Google's guide for Search Engine.
  • And at last, we need to be consistent and patient. We need to build connections with other bloggers.

If you want to do blogging and willing to make Blogging as a career then be prepared for these. And trust me, these may be looking difficult but if you are passionate about blogging then you will enjoy all of them.

Although, don't ignore writing, because writing is the first and most important quality which a blogger should have. And make a habit of reading (daily). This will enhance your writing skills.
