For years, was i thinking about having my own domain and blog site on my own name. That day is here. I have shifted my blog to www.marjankhan.com. Although its already been a month that i have hosted it but i have finally found enough time to start working over it. The reason was my busy schedule towards freelancing. I did use to freelance for a year when finally i got fed up of the hectic routine. This time my freelancing is more learning oriented than earning oriented. I came to know about People per hour and made a proper profile in it and found a job on the very first day which to be honest was very difficult. It was about solving advance mathematical economics questions as well as an academic essay related to a case study of Iceland monetary policy and role of exchange rate.
Believe me! i am still surprised whenever i read it and my client was really satisfied with what i did that included references from various research papers with organized bibliography and authentic information. And than the search for new jobs carried on. I got one job after another and since 8th August 2014 when i started working on PPH till today, I realised that i was earning as equal to what my earning was as a lecturer in the university and even more than that. But the best part was learning different things that i couldnt do in my monotonous job. There is no doubt that it was this Job that made me enough confident about writing Academic essay and articles etc. But somehow this is hard, new and interesting to do .
My current job is about finding research and data regarding UK tax reforms that is more policy related. The client seems satisfied from my work and i am satisfied from the knowledge i am achieving in this project. i was over-whelmed to know that the man had a double masters (Economics and Physics) from Cambridge.

“Dear Husband, out loud would I share my love and care towards you for what you made me.”
I am almost done with the important plugins required for the new website blog. Still not satisifed with the appearence though. But lets see what i could do with that. One of the important things i need to learn is about the opt-in forms and email marketing for generating some traffic. Additionally, this website will also include my earnings open to all so that everyone could know how and what i do . Which can also be consdered one of the ways of attracting traffic towards your blog.
The bad news is that my Google adsense was denied for econtutorials. One of the probable reasons was its new domain. I was told that the domain need to be 6 months old to be able to apply in adsense. Mine was just 3 months old baby! But i decided to go for other alternatives at the moment and outsource some unique content related to Economics so that the website can still keep on running fine. It does requires little tit bits like Subscriptions and organic traffic generation and social media marketing either paid or unpaid. But rest apart i think its fine going.
Thus, i have 2 blogs site running now with freelancing job aswell as going through different tutorials about SEO, WordPress, Camtasia etc which leads to the conclusion that you can work from anywhere ! If only you want to…..
The commitment of being a professional blogger is not that easy. And the sacrifices or the opportunity cost of doing this work instead of getting an MS degree is still very high. Nothing can be compared to higher level of Education. So I wont feel comfortable untill i turn out to be one of the best pro-bloggers in Pakistan. At the moment i feel like a nobody when it comes to pro-blogging. There is still soo much to learn. And thats just the beginning…..
I wont be using this Blog from now on. Everything that i would talk about would be available in my new self-hosted wordpress website Marjankhan. So follow me there incase if you have any questions or comments regarding my work….
