I have been actively blogging since 2007, and in the process, I have learned a lot about blogging. This includes selecting a domain name, selecting a good web host, setting up a website, and everything else that goes with maintaining a blog or website.

I have been using WordPress for all my blogs, which has given me some solid experience with WordPress, WordPress themes and various WordPress plugins. is my attempt to guide you about blogging and WordPress so that you can avoid the mistakes I have made in the past and can have a successful blog of your own as quickly as possible. This is also a good opportunity for me to learn more about blogging and WordPress with you.


What can you expect from this blog?

I would of course be addressing basic “how to blog” questions, and would describe in detail how to achieve various things in WordPress. I would also be talking about different WordPress plugins, and how you can use them to make your blog better.

I also plan to talk about strategies to increase traffic to your blog, and ways to make money online. I have tried many traffic building and monetization strategies on the various blogs that I own – both successfully and unsuccessfully. So I am sure you would gain a thing or two from my experiences.

Apart from this, I would be talking about some of the other blogs that I own and maintain (details below). I would give you an account of what I am doing with those blogs, and would also share the income & traffic details of each of those blogs. The initial plan is to do this on a monthly basis.

The posts related to this would be under the “My Blogs’ Stats” category.


The Blogs I Would Be Talking About

Following is a list of my other blogs – for more details, please read the introductory post “My Other Blogs – The Companions in Our Journey“. Logo is a blog about the things to do in New York City.


CruiseTipsNDeals Logo is a blog about cruise advice and best cruise discounts.


Change in Location of This Blog

This blog was originally located at the URL I later changed it to, because:

  • The new URL is shorter and easier to remember
  • The inclusion of “WordPress” in the URL infringed on the trademark, which I had not realized earlier
