not being easy because nobody was ready to take me by hand while coming up. You

industry are not just friendly. I don’t know why this is so, but that is just
the nicked truth.

expectations (short term, long term, financially) when you started blogging? If

other blogs that you run and if yes, what are they and what they are all about?
