Why Did I Choose Blogging?
While telling my story I always have tears in my eyes. Life was never easy for me. Unfortunately, I lost my father when I was young, and my family was having financial crisis they had no one to support them so I became their only hope.
I wanted to pursue my higher education but I needed money to fulfill my educational expenses. That’s why I requested my relatives to lend me some money.
Guess what! They refused.
And it was the moment when I could see my dream completely shattered. Then my mother decided to sell her Gold(jewelry) so I can get admission and continue my further studies.
Along with my education, I started applying for many jobs but didn’t get any. So then, I decided to start my own fast-food restaurant but still, life was never easy for me.
Well, the question is “how did I get into blogging”?
During struggling days, I was sitting with my friends. Suddenly, my cell phone popped up with a notification, and it was a text but for me, it was a knock at the door of my online career.
It was a scam text from the marketing agencies and It said that (if I wanted to make money online, you needed to start with PTC (paid-to-click) business.
After that, I was exploring on the internet about online earning and I got to know the idea of blogging. Then I kept on searching about it and followed almost all the pro bloggers to educate myself to the extent that I can give back to the community.
And then started adding value to my community through “Quora” where I saw the queries of people and I started resolving them with the idea of expert bloggers and my own knowledge.
I was just inspired by my experience and the feedback I was getting from the community and that’s why I just decided to start my own journey of blogging.
That’s How my journey began!
How Did Blogging Change My Life?
I started blogging in 2013, and as a newbie, I was unaware of many things and I had no idea of writing, but these reasons never stopped me from growing as an affiliate blogger.
Later, I was called out numerous times among expert bloggers nationally and internationally. And I was also invited by the government of the U.S. (United States of America) for meetups with the world’s greatest entrepreneurs, founders, and startups.
And then I got featured in Pakistan’s magazine, being interviewed by national and international channels like Voice of America, Radio Pakistan, and khyber new as well as Mashriq Tv.
And it didn’t stop there, I played a leading role as a training coordinator in the KPK youth employment program which is organized by the world bank & KPIT board.
