If i use a metaphor! I would say the road to achievement…

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. 

About Marjankhan website, Well ! This website will be an amalgamation of different things that i am learning step by step which will include the ideas of freelancing tips, earning online or making money online and also Online teaching ideas including the platforms , softwares , equipments that i will use. Additionally, there will be More about WordPress, camtasia and affiliate marketing in future. So it more like a progress of whatever i would do to become an entrepreneur and a pro-blogger. Offcourse this will also include my Personal life discussion as well. Just like i always do . Besides! When you have a man whose proud of your creativity. Than you probably need not to worry about anything in this regard.

“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…..

Goodbye wordpress.com and Hello to wordpress.org . i am so attracted to your platform and willing to learn everything about you, you and just you ….

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…. 

 

Regards

Blogging at its Peak

Happy Belated Eid everyone. I am sure everyone much have been busy meeting family members, friends and other companions without bothering about anything else around. Eid brings such cheer and the feeling of happiness. For a while you really do get oblivious from everything else except this celebration. Mine turned out to be the same.

So far so good I have made many infant blogs and have started working over their themes and other settings. They are all www.wordpress.com blogs. I will be pasting them to a self hosted blog later when they get to have enough posts as well as traffic. The best part is that they can simply be imported to another self-hosted wordpress blog by just a click of import and export ! So all of my blog are :

  1. Pakistan Affairs Blog
  2. How I Am Monetizing my Blog
  3. My Pashto Blog
  4. Economics Tutorials Blog
  5. Marjan Khan’s Blog (This one right now)

All of these blogs are of my own interest. I haven’t thought about a unique niche but rather about improving the areas in which I am more interested. I believe that a unique niche isn’t the only factor to attract traffic but rather unique content also matters a lot. And for that offcourse you need to have good English composition skills. I am not sure if I have them or not. But I surely wont stop trying !

Road to Quetta

Apart from that I continuously work over a daily progress report of anything that I do related to all these blogs , SEO tutorials and other improvement in my learning. The SEO tutorial at Udemy turned out to be quiet helpful in installing some of the worth mentioning Plugins. I think I can also be an instructor at Udemy . This also seems to be one of my future plans.

Uptil now, I have completely indulged myself into this virtual world and believe me ! I am so really happy at doing all this. in particular, when you have someone at your back to motivate you for all this crap, My loving Husband !

Off topic but my decision for improving my own field is not progressing as much as I thought. Perhaps this Blog workload makes me feel exhausted and I somehow don’t feel enough interested in that part of my tasks. 

Anyways ! Wish me luck and I seriously need one for running all these blogs. So much has to be done….

Sorry, Google: Amazon’s Employees Are Hotter Than Yours

Interesting….

TIME

Amazon isn’t just a company with an attractive portfolio—CEO Jeff Bezos is worth a staggering $30 billion—it also possesses the most attractive employees, reports the Wall Street Journal.

Hinge, a dating app that matches young professionals in similar networks, found that users are 14.2% more likely to “swipe right” for Amazon employees than their counterparts at tech companies like Microsoft, Google, Facebook and Apple. Microsoft comes in second with approval levels hitting 8.2% above average, while Apple ranks as the least attractive tech firm with a paltry percentage of 0.2.

Since 2013, Hinge has examined the most attractive firms in New York City, Washington D.C., Boston and San Francisco.Different industries are represented in the lists. Two media firms top New York’s list—Women at MediaVest USA and men at Facebook boast high scores.

But are Amazon employees really more attractive than their Googlers? Amazon reported having 117,300 employees as…

Traveling and SEO

It is not that I couldn’t organize enough time to write. Rather I had plenty of time to write about a lot of stuff that I am learning these days. Isolation or I should say Seclusion! Is a blessing when it comes to Studying the way you want. Particularly if you have made an environment for yourself. Let me have another confession (The first one was telling my husband that I hate Surprises which now I don’t ! )

“I love Blogging. it Inspires me, motivates me and gives me a feeling of yearning towards writing about anything that I want”

For a lover of Isolation, travelling is always a huge task in the to-do list. And I really felt that I have continuously  been travelling in these two months within cities that consequently made me feel too exhausted. It was from Karachi to Lahore and than  Lahore to Karachi and finally back to Home town Quetta for a family meet up.  My sudden visit to my University was Quiet a surprise for my colleagues. But it was fun to hang around and talk about the same crap with your best buddies around there. It was surely a memorable visit with lost of lunches, tea parties and Dinners for me as a part of our Culture for the arrival of the newly wed Bride ! (Oh ! dear this part make me blush che che!!!!)
