Have you ever considered Blogging as a career in India or in your home country?
I have never come across anyone with so far, who wants to become a pro blogger.
There are few full-time bloggers in India.
Potential to make money by blogging is huge. Huge. But, not many folks are aware of this career path.
If you haven’t explored Blogging as your career, you should seriously consider becoming a professional blogger (Professional Blogger).
Your parents might not agree to it initially. But, if you can show them that you can make money online, they should support you.
Traditional Career Path
Typically three options exist for new graduates
- Get a Degree and a Full-time job
- Get another degree
- Take care of your Family Business
But, there is this 4th option – Self-Employment, Entrepreneurship.
We don’t see many new graduates talk about Entrepreneurship and Starting a new company. Making money online will fall under 4th option. The startup scene in India is booming. All you need is right idea and grit to follow through your idea.
In, India parents play a huge role in deciding their kids future career. When they are on the lookout for Engineering colleges, most of them look for on-campus placement rates.
They are thinking in terms of getting ROI. If my son or daughter studies this degree in this college, what are the chances of job placements? What will be the monthly salary?
They feel proud when their son or daughter get a job through campus placement.
Blogging As a Career in India
Did you know, serious money can be made from blogging?
As an entry-level software engineer in India, you might earn an average of INR 25,000 per month right? I was listening to a TV show (in Tamil). IT Engineers get like INR 8000 per month in some companies. I just couldn’t visualize a lifestyle with USD120 per month. But, in reality that can feed a family in India.
What hurts me is the lack of exposure to opportunities abounds with self-employment. If you are good at web design, start your shop or pick new skills to make money online. Blogging is one such way. Here’re 22 ways to make money from blogging. Maybe, you will become good at one of those ways. What if you can earn more than your full-time job via at from blogging? Would you be willing to give it a shot?
Example – Advertisement Cost in HSB
Four 125×125 ads that you see on the right side on the sidebar here in HSB.
- Cost Per 125×125 = $150
- Cost for 4 Slots = $600
Compare that to your Entry Level Salary for a Software Engineer.
- $600 = About Rs33,000
- Entry Level S/W Salary = $500 = Rs25,000
What if you can show your family that you can earn more money from blogging?
Wouldn’t they encourage and support you for making money online in India via blogging?
Here in the USA, I run into bloggers who travel around the world. I have seen students who take one year off to explore the world or get an enriching experience. There’s so much to learn and earn from this world, all it takes in a keen set of eyes and action.
