8. One piece of advice that you would like to share with all new bloggers?
As soon as we start anything new, we want to touch the skies. But with blogging, persistence and patience is the key. When we started, we heard it everywhere - and that is the message we would like to pass on - be patient and create quality content. Don't go for shortcuts.
As long as you maintain persistence and quality, your work will start getting paid off. Do it for your interest and satisfaction, not for making quick bucks.
