  8. hi pradeep

    good post.

    Can you please tell me how to add google search engine to blog

  9. You covered so many aspects very well in this post, just one feedback that making money is not so simple. You need to initiate lot many things and continue with that on your blog or share some free stuff on your blog to get recognized. Rest are really cool.

    • I’m totally agreeing with you Sanjeev !

      Many people got recognition by giving free stuffs and services !

      Making money is a slow process, but will become steady once it completes some goals ! πŸ˜‰

  10. A freelancer should also know how to write for search engine and for people. They should also learn how to write for adsense by not writing the solution to what they are writing about so that people can leave their sites through adsense and not through the ‘x’ button at the top of their browser.

  11. Hi Pradeep, Great tips! I am planning to take short course about programming and web design. Well, I do online jobs for full time now for some of the reasons you state above: making money and no fixed hours. What I like best is that I can earn much better than average fresh graduates in my country. Can you call that entrepreneur? Lol..

  12. Wow! nice post, I agree with tech freak, master in one trade is sufficient, if anyone want to become writer then he needn’t go for designing or coding part. Consistency and passion are very necessary terms of blogging.

    • Yes Himanshu ! πŸ˜‰

      I don’t like working for others for a long term ! πŸ˜€

      A freelancer can easily manage personal and professional life.

      Dude, are you are a freelancer ?

  13. Good tips, but I would like to say, that be a master in something rather than being the jack of all trades.

    Knowing everything is good, but be a genius in one field where you lay ahead of all and there is no competition for you. Always keep gathering knowing and stay up-to-date.
