He is the CEO, Founder and Editor of HellBoundBloggers a very successful blog with 400+ guest Bloggers and still increasing this community.

Once you will have a look at his blog you will surprised with its design and look. He at his own maintaining this Wonderful blog. Here is the question and answer series with him.

1. When and how you started Blogging?

My addiction to Orkut is one of the reasons probably, I was really addicted to it and I was very curious about this term “Blogging” since it was viral when Orkut was popular. Later I gained some experience, and started a small blog on Google’s Blogger platform. I learned many things from that small blog, things for which I should care and for which I should not.

After gaining some experience there, I started a blog on WordPress around late 2009, and now it is grown into HellBound Bloggers (HBB).

2. What is your Educational Background?

After few months, I’ll be a graduate in Computer Science Engineering, hopefully.

3. What was the biggest obstacle when you started blogging?

Interest. I don’t know really know whether I had interest or not, so it was the biggest obstacle. Things changed later.

4. The best thing you did for building your Blog?

Enabled Guest Blogging, which would be the best thing I did for building my blog, or more precisely building a community around my blog. When you read a blog which has lots of different writers, you’ll feel the community spirit.

5. What are the topics u are covering in your blog?

We focus on Technology, Social Media and Blogging related posts. In one way or another, every post fits these categories. We rarely write off-topic posts, except for some personal or social reasons.

6. How you are making money from blog?

Mainly through Premium Reviews (also called Paid/Sponsored reviews) and Direct Ads. We have also monetized our blog with Technorati Media advertisements.

7. From where you got the inspiration?

I got inspired by many people, I admired their steps, but I would like to mention Arun Basil Lal and Harsh Agarwal., they triggered something out of me.

8. How people behave with you when they know you are a successful blogger?

Not really different, they respect me and some thank me. I always remind myself that a successful blogger should have satisfied readers. I’ll try to help them, with my best level.

9. Do you have any experience of Coding?

That’s really a challenging question. I don’t code much, or I don’t know much. I’m familiar with the power and usage of web related languages, but not an expert.

10. How you invited the Guest Bloggers at your Blog and how many guest blogger you have?

I didn’t invite anyone actually; I made it clear about Guest Blogging on HBB. The community around our blog started to publish the posts and it expanded, as simple as that. We have almost 400+ guest authors.

11. Which blog do you open daily (Favorite Websites).

Normally I used to read some list of blogs, but now I’m using two sites for getting latest news – Google News and Alltop.

12. Your favorite Books and Movies?

My favorite book is Rage of Angels by Sidney Sheldon and favorite movies would be Se7en and Fight Club. I don’t watch or read anything in particular, but these are my favorites.

13. Favorite Quote

“Blessed is the man who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed” – All time favorite.

14. How Much time do you spend daily for Blogging?

It depends on the load I may get. I thank HBB’s guest authors and commentators for reducing my time. Love you!

15. Apart from Blogging what other things you Do?

Concentrate on my academics? 😀 I dedicate the remaining time for my education, though I rarely get any. 

16. What is your future Planning?

Will be adding more functionality to HBB, for making it more comfortable. Lots of new stuffs, hopefully, we’ll implement it ASAP.

17. How many page views the blog generates daily?

On average, 7000-10,000 page views per day.

18. Your message for the new bloggers.

You’ll always forget that being satisfied is near to successful. Target to become a satisfied blogger, and then people around you pick you as a successful blogger.

19. Are you going to start any new project on Blogging?

Yes, not yet, but ‘yes’ for your question. 🙂

20. Will you sell your blog?

HBB is an inspiration for me. Won’t lose it. 🙂
