Team Behind AskBlogging
I have joined a good company as a Software Developer. However, my true passion lies in blogging So, I will always contribute the well-researched content time to time here. As ASBlogging get older so, we have increased our team size.
We welcome Palak Thakur. She has recently joined us as a Content Writer.
From now onwards, she will be responsible for all the Content on this website and, I’ll review the SEO and Ranking related stuffs.
My name is Shivansh Singh, Founder and Owner of ASKBlogging and I was born in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh. I was an average student in education. I wanted to become a pilot in my childhood and I was thinking about this all the time.
But, Things go on, and I forget my first dream.
Down In My Life
During My High School days (2015), One day I was using my mother’s phone for searching for the best games and suddenly I saw an article about Ritesh Agarwal (Founder of OYO Rooms). I read that article. It was the success story of Ritesh Agarwal.
Now, It was a life-changing moment for me and, It was going to change my life completely.
I took the inspiration from Ritesh Agarwal and now I have a dream. I wanted to start my startup.
I researched a lot but didn’t get any idea how to start my startup.
In 2016, I got to know about Peter Thiel Fellowship. I applied for the Peter Thiel fellowship for my startup idea but didn’t get any reply from them.
I gave up my dream and started to focus on my education (12th standard). After completing my 12th, I took admission in Chandigarh Group Of Colleges in 2017. I was doing Btech in the Information Technology Field.
Everything was perfect but, One day I got to know that there was some problem in my school (From where I have done my 12th) so, They can not give my 12th mark sheet (There were around 318 students who did not receive their 12th mark sheet)
And, I must have to submit my 12th mark sheet to my Engineering College for the document verification purpose.
But, I failed to submit my 12th mark sheet there, so I have to withdraw my admission from the Chandigarh Group Of Colleges.
As you can see in the above newspaper Case 2, I have to withdraw my admission from the college (There was little my name mistake in the newspaper).
It was November 2017.
I was very demotivated and feeling stressed because we have lost around 1.5 lakh Rs including College Fees, Hostel Fees, and Mess Fees.
At that time, I was a 10th passed student because I didn’t have my 12th mark sheet. I was watching my future is ruined.
But, I think negatively for a certain time period and, after that, I think how can I overcome this bad situation.
Bounce Back Time
I was thinking about what’s next for me then again I started to work on my Dream.
I was searching for the best income sources so that I can recover my lost money (Invested in my college and related fees) and then I got to know about Blogging.
After one month of research, I started my first blog in January 2018.
I started BlogOway.com
But, It failed because I didn’t have proper knowledge of SEO and Content writing.
Then again I started another website VeloKwik.com, It was also a blogging website but again it failed due to improper knowledge of SEO and Content Writing.
It was mid-2018 and I also got my 12th Marksheet after winning the case in Lucknow High Court (Filed by my father) and I took admission in Lucknow for BCA.
Now, I want to figure out my mistake in my previous unsuccessful blog.
I saw I didn’t have proper blogging related knowledge and I was also not following the powerful strategies.
I started to learn SEO and Content Writing but, It was very difficult to manage blogging learning with my college because of time-related issues.
I traveled around 50 KM daily with public transport for my college. It takes me about 1.5 hours to 2 hours to reach my college from my resident and the same with the college to home.
College timing is from 9:40 AM to 4:50 PM.
After reaching my home from college, I have to manage my college-related work (Like making notes, assignments or test preparation, etc).
I was feeling frustrated because I wanted to do something but I could not.
But somehow, I managed my blogging-related tasks during my free time at my college.
In 2019, I got to know about the Abhit Updhayay SEO King course. I enrolled in this course to enhance my learning in SEO.
Seriously, SEO King Course is a pack of value. I learned many things from this course.
And after that, I took the Affiliate Marketing Master Class Course from Kulwant Nagi sir. I have learned many things from both courses.
Now, I was ready to bounce back in 2020. I started my blog AskBlogging.com, I want to teach people why they are not earning money from their blog and that’s the reason I started AskBlogging.com.
When COVID 19 came to India, It hit businesses badly but I took this as an opportunity and I saw my blog growth during the CORONA crisis.
AskBlogging Growth & Income
I implemented all the strategies and then within 3 months I got a sponsorship from a Europe based hosting company.
Even, I had 0 traffic with less than 5 DA but still, they were ready for the 100$ sponsorship.
The reason behind my earning is, I am following all the strategies.
It was my first online earning, Now I’m working hard with my blog to make it big.
Consistency + Improvement + Strategies = Success
I have faced many ups and downs in my life but I never give up, and Now, I’m on the way to success.

Strategies are the secrets behind people’s success.
If you see unsuccessful and successful people then the only difference you will get is Unsuccessful peoples, don’t follow the strategies and Proven methods.
