Hello BlogKori Readers

When I first started BlogKori, it was a collection of blogging and money making tips. I wrote about everything I came across and It helped many beginners.

When I first started my online journey I had an interest in blogging and internet marketing. Then I went into freelance web development. Over the last few years, I failed to keep up with my blogging because of my web development job.

I learned a lot about web development working as a freelancer, I now want to pursue a career in web development. For this reason I would like to write about web development and stuff.

I have been thinking about this blog for the last 6 months, which direction should I take it. For sometimes I thought about writing WordPress blogging related stuff. But nothing was clicking.

I thought about turning blogkori into a web development blog, but the name doesn’t really fits the topic. So I decided to start a new blog to write about web development, WordPress, NodeJS and any relevant technology which I am working at the moment.

I have not fully decided yet, so I have to think a lot of the things through. On my new blog I don’t want to cover newbie tutorials, instead I want to go through intermediate topics and opinions about the things I do.

So what about this BlogKori blog? I haven’t thought about it yet. I may keep this blog for a yearly report of my online journey. Have to think about that too.

For now, just know that I am working on a new blog and if you are a web developer like me, then you can follow my live videos on facebook. -I talk and show web development stuff in my live videos.

Do you have any suggestions or feedback? Please leave them as comments:

Being a Pro Freelancer

Many freelancers are bound by their marketplaces. If you work in Upwork then your career is limited to that platform only. You go by the rule of the marketplace.

So the next logical step to advance your career is to go independent. Get clients from outside of the marketplaces.

Here’s how to do that: [Continue reading…]

You Should Not Learn C Programming Language if you are just starting out

If you are just getting started in programming, you should never pick C as the first language to learn. It’s too difficult and will make your life miserable. Instead use a beginner friendly lang such as Python, Ruby or JavaScript. This will make your life easier.

C is the mother of all programming languages. It is a general purpose programming lang, you can build anything with it like operating systems, games, software etc.

When a newbie comes into programming, the world looks like a wonderland with so many possibilities. C has a reputation for being the the go-to language of the top folks. [Continue reading…]
