Firstly I want to say thanks to accept my interview proposal, I am very happy to have you at my blog. Please introduce yourself and your blog to my audience. ?
My pleasure to be here Jyoti, thanks for giving an opportunity to share my blogging involvements here.
This is Nirmala, part-time blogger. I am friendly person who hate to sit idle. Technology is my fascinating subject as I graduated on Electronics and Communication Engineering and I keep myself updating with trendy tech stuffs. I love writing the most and helping others is my best attitude.
How did you come into blogosphere and from when you are in blogging?
Due to some personal reasons, I had refused some offers from IT concerns that came my way and decided to work from home. When I was in search of online jobs, a great internet marketer showed a way to make money with writing. He helped me to create blogs on blogspot platform and advised me to write on my preferred topics.
For few years, I was blogging about online money making, health and beauty in three different blogs and made some bucks with Adsense. But those blogs are badly hit by Google animals as there were no social cues for them. I tried to make money with Fiverr, Mturk and some freelance writing sites, but the returns were not up to the mark.
Then, I got connected with a tech blogger in Facebook and added some bloggers to learn imperative blogging things. There I met a passionate, talented guy, Atish Ranjan, founder of Techtricksworld.com and I got inspired to blogging in a self-hosted domain through him. I would say that my talents got stimulated by him and he helped me to found Mymagicfunds.
How do you manage your time as a blogger and as housewife?
It is the toughest job for me. But my passion in blogging is letting me to manage both effectively. My priority goes to the family and so I get up early in the morning to finish all the household activities before the clock strikes 10. Then I start my blogging work and have break for lunch, nap and other personal activities. On the total, I spend 8 hours for blogging.
What’s your major source to earn money from blogging?
As of now, Adsense is my main earning source and I used to get some good paid posts. Moreover, I am offering my writing service to few clients and making some dough with it. Due to time limitations, I had refused so many high paying writing offers as I need to take care of my family.
But I wanna get into the Affiliate Marketing seriously and hence collecting data from various experts related to it. Soon I’ll be a good affiliate for some worthy products.
What is your favorite technique to promote your blog?
Obviously, social media is my favorite blog promotion technique. I stay active in various social networks, blogging communities and social bookmarking websites to spread my blog posts and guest posts.
But I believe that the blog posts have the self-promoting ability, if they have created well with quality information through proper keyword research.
Are you planning to run another blog?
Yes, but not now. I am still in the learning mode and educating myself with imperious and trendy blogging stuffs. So, I will start a new tech blog after a year.
What’s the greatest thing you love about the blogging?
Networking with experts and getting inspiration from them is the greatest thing I love about blogging. I got staggered with the polite response & helping tendency of many bloggers and I’ve learned some beneficial stuff from them.
Moreover, my hidden talents are now exhibiting to some extent and this is also an extraordinary thing about blogging.
Do you have any specific blogs you love to read and like to recommend newbie to become a successful blogger?
I would like to visit many blogs. If I list all, the readers might get tired in reading my interview post. So, I wanna spell out some of my desired blogs.

Is guest posting really dead? What are you views about guest posting?
Yes, guest blogging is dead for the bloggers who aimed to build links and get high SERP with it. But it is still alive for me because my goal is to progress my blog readership, online reputation and bond with other bloggers. So I am continuing it favorably to get connect with like-minded persons.
Here I made a post with my views on guest blogging and I rounded-up my latest guest posts here. (http://www.mymagicfundas.com/guest-blogging-not-dead/).
Would like to recommend some blogging tips to newbie to make their blogging journey awesome?
Blogging needs a set of skills and so don’t build blogs just to make money. Interaction with visitors and like-minded people are most important in blogging and a blogger should have an innovative mind to acquire recent search engine algorithms. I came across many bloggers who failed to make money and quit blogging soon as they have no patience and wanted to earn bucks within few days.
You can earn real money with blogging with various monetization methods. The more effort invested in the beginning, the more money could be made in upcoming days. Moreover, forming an active community (a group of supporting people) for a blog is really significant to get succeed in blogging path.
