10 Year Anniversary of Working Online

10 yearsOct 27, 2017 marks my 10 year anniversary of working online. Ten years from now, on this day I started looking for ways to build a website. I started with no money or knowledge and was able to make a career in this field.

My reason for writing this look back:

10 years of working online is nothing to be bragged about. I wanted to share my story for me to read and reflect on what I have done. It should also be an inspirational post to all of those who are reading and in a tough situation right now. [Continue reading…]

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…]

Long Blog Posts Suck!

It simply sucks. I don’t personally read blog posts word by word, so how can I expect you to read them too? I know there are people who are kind enough to read a 1,000 word long blog article from start to finish, but I think that’s a minority.

Why waste your time? Let me give you what you need to know in less words.

For the last few years I developed a habit of writing longer blog articles. Guys like Neil Patel shells out 2,000-3,000 word articles in their blogs and advice everyone to do that same, because of the obvious SEO benefits. The entire blog-sphere is shifting towards long blog post formats.

But why write long posts just for the sake of it?

Here’s my take:

Our attention spans are getting shorter and shorter. A long blog post means a long way to scroll down in your mobile phone, which sucks!

I personally don’t read 1,000 word articles anymore. I just scan the headlines and the bullet lists.

If you like long reads, go read a story or a novel.

But for instructional pieces like the ones I share in my blog, short is better.

Do you agree with me?

You Can Use Bitcoin As a Payment Method for Online Business

I can’t stop, most recently I have become interested in Bitcoin and the blockchain technology. If you have been following the news lately, you know that Bitcoin is on the rise. And not just that, there are many other coins like Ethereum, Litecoin, Dash are on the rise as well.

Long story short: there are many new technologies being developed on top of the blockchain platform and the total valuation of the coins combined is more than 150 Trillion US dollars ($150,000,000,000) That’s a lot of money and ambition in this field.

Anyways, when I got interested in Bitcoin, just like the next person I was amazed by the price hike. But as I learned more about it, I realized it could be a solution to a growing pain to many people. [Continue reading…]

How To Convince & Train Your Family About Your Home Based Work

To my blog readers from the west, for your information it’s a common thing here in Asia to live with your parents. If you are living all by yourself then you can pursue a career but here in India or Bangladesh, you have to go by with your family.

So if you are in Asia living with your parents and want to take a profession where you have to work from home, then you must convince them first.

Even if you are not living with your parents, still if you have a family like your spouse or kids then it’s a great idea to train them about your stay at home business.

Having your loved ones by your side can do wonders for your work.

Do you know the reason how I was able to build a successful online career? It is because of my family. My family gave me full support for my online based work.

In this blog post I am going to give you some advice which I found useful by convincing and training my own family. [Continue reading…]
