I am Bibin Wilson
An Engineer by Profession and a Tech Blogger by passion.
My mission is to help as many as possible to start their blogging journey. Also, in the process of getting a good pic to use here –> 😀
Who is Bibin Wilson?
I am a master’s degree holder in Computer Science and in my full-time job, I work as an Associate Technical Architect. Also, a husband and a father!
If you meet me for the first time and start discussing any interesting topics, I would tell you to start a blog.
The reason is, I strongly believe that sharing knowledge is the best way to grow personally and professionally. I mean growth in terms of knowledge and its byproduct money.
Blogging is something that motivates me to learn and explore new things.
I can talk about blogging and its benefits for hours and hours because it is something I really like doing and have been doing for almost 10 years now.
My Blogging Journey
I started my first blog in 2011, June on Google’s blogger platform. My first post was about RTI(Right to Information Act).
It didn’t go well. My first blog wasn’t serving any purpose.
Later in 2012, when I was doing my master’s, I was very interested in the concept of cloud computing. So I decided to learn about it and document everything I know in a blog.
And I started my first tech blog on the blogger platform. Here is the screenshot of my first blog about cloud computing published in January 2012.
If you see the author’s name, it shows “Mike.” I was embarrassed to put my own name as the blog author. I was scared about what others would think about me because I felt like an imposter.
Blogging was one of the best decisions I made in my life. I learned so much about cloud computing, and I would publish my learnings in my blog. It gave me a reason to read and learn more.
Tech Blogging Landed Me in a Job
Here is a little bit of history about how I got my job.
I attended many interviews before I got my first IT job.
When I started my blog, I had this feeling that at least one company would visit my campus with cloud computing requirements.
I got lucky! I got an opportunity to attend an interview on-campus who came to recruit candidates for a Cloud Practice team.
And guess what! I got the job. During the interview process, I was explaining the things I learned through my blog. It was nothing related to what I was learning from college. (Data structures, Programming, etc.).
It didnt stop there,
- I published a 300 pages technical book during the second year of my career.
- Till today I have published more than 250 technical articles.
So if you are reading this and you are in college or trying to get into the next level of your career, just start a blog :).
I started Earning From My Blogs
I continued tech blogging even after finishing college.
I would publish IT related blogs whenever I get time.
In this journey, I figured out many ways to convert my passion to money through my tech blogs. It was a slow journey as am not a full-time blogger.
Sometimes it’s really tough to manage a day job and blogging. But it didn’t stop me from publishing content.
Today, my tech blogs are the source of passive income, which pays a few of my bills. Anyways, money is not a big motivation here.
Money is basically a byproduct here. If you are passionate about something and ready to work for it, money automatically follows it.
If you want to make money from your tech blog, you should have perseverance.
I know people who started blogs, and after publishing a couple of posts, they get demotivated. Blogging success doesn’t happen overnight. It’s a slow and steady process.
Why This Blog?
When I started blogging, nobody was there to mentor me or guide me in the right way.
I learned everything by reading and from my own experiences. Sometimes things worked and many times they didn’t!
I started this blog with the sole purpose of sharing my experiences and learnings in my blogging journey. So that you don’t have to go through everything I did.
I will write about tools and strategies that I learned also things that I am trying out.
I will also be sharing more step-by-step guides in this blog that you can follow to grow your own blog.
Want to Get Started?
If you want to create your own blog to gain knowledge, improve your career path and generate passive income, you can join me in the journey.
I will help you do that by sharing the secrets which no tech blogger tells you.
Also, I will be sharing all my productivity tips. Things that worked & things that didn’t.
