Nowadays we are becoming habitual to internet and according to me, it is the internet which allowed technology industry to enter into the next level. Today we’re using expensive smartphone, tablet and netbook devices just because of one reason and the reason is internet. At present scenario, most of the people are buying smartphones just to access WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter etc, on their smartphone. Have you ever thought? Is internet only the medium of entertainment or study. Think about people like Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey and then ask a question to yourself “Am I doing enough on internet.”
But back in 2010, things were different at that time because the internet was a new experience for almost everyone in almost every Country and especially in the subcontinent Countries like India. From my personal experience, I would like to acknowledge you that Facebook and Twitter were just a medium of time pass for me and to make stranger friends at that time. But there was a good quality of mine that helped me to think about internet as a money making market and name of that quality was “reading”, Yes you got this right because reading about various stories and articles was a habit to me. And once I saw an article featuring “People who made a fortune out of internet.” Then I realized that Facebook and Twitter are not god’s property but a set-up created by human beings and they’re making money via advertisement.
In 2010, I was a student of 10th Grade and think about internet as money making opportunity was big amorousness of my mind. Later I used to learn about term called blog, blogging, and blogger. Then I took the blog business as not just a long-term habit but as a virtual newspaper industry where newspaper publishing companies use to generate money by placing advertising alongside with their articles. By the year 2011, I learned every basic of setting up a blog, posting article and generate money by placing ads via ad networks like Google Ad Sense and Chitika.
I was so curious to generate money out of my blog and had no patience to wait so I created my blog “abrition” on free hosted blogging platform called “WordPress.com” but I knew that a domain name for my blog was a prerequisite to generate money by placing advertisements as Google Adsense did not accept blogs into their ad network without self-domain. And for purchasing a domain name for my blog, I was required to spend a small amount of $18 but here credit card was required to make international purchases and for this, I needed my father’s one. But I won’t able to borrow his card as he will definitely gonna ask tons of question. So that fear forced me to carry my blogging habit without domain name and ad revenue. But over a period of time, I did realize that blogging is going to be a form of new age media and will attract many advertisers in the future. So I took the bold step of my life and told the whole procedure of money-making to my father and told him that I need his credit card to continue and eventually he said in lightly manner that “I’ll think about it.” and at that time, I thought he is not serious. Then one day my father came to me and asked “Do you want to make some purchase over internet, You asked once .” Then I told him about the concept of blogging and how it generates ad revenue. Eventually, he understood it very well but it is difficult for a parent to encourage his or her child to make money instead of doing school studies and it was my 10th standard and boards exams was on my head. But he told me that he will allow me to use his credit card only if I will make a promise to him that I will not going to compromise my studies at any cause. Then I said “Of course, study will be my first priority” and then I created “Abrition.com”. And after almost 4 years, Because of that decision of asking for credit card from my father, I am a professional blogger who use to generate a handsome ad revenue from the blog on the monthly basis and have 4 professional writers dedicated to abrition.com
That’s how I made my fortune and that’s how “abrition.com” created.
