What process do you use to edit your work and to ensure if it is free from grammatical errors or not? Any tips for bloggers?
From my own knowledge, I try to correct grammatical errors. But I know that I am not always 100% correct. As my native language is not English, this is natural that there may be some errors. My tips for bloggers is that the main important thing is that you are sharing unique and useful content. 1% grammatical error is accepted in blogging. Blog from your own interest and do not take those grammatical errors too seriously, then it may happen that one day you will stop writing.
Who are your blogging role models?
I do not have any specific name in my mind but Michael Arrington inspires me a lot. Actually I try to read a lot of blogs in my spare time and if I get interested about any article then I try to find out the name of the author. On that time, that author becomes my role model.
What is the value of SEO and SMO in your blogging journey and which tactic is your favourite one? How social media impact blogging?
I believe in natural SEO and SMO. I do not spend any extra time for SEO and SMO. When I write, I try to write through my natural way and I believe that Google believes that natural SEO and SMO. Without social media you cannot become one popular blogger and now a days from my thinking, signals from social media are the most important things that Google counts.
After the recent Matt Cutts statement on Guest blogging; is it good idea to choose blogging a full time occupation these days? Please explain
Blogging is always a good option to switch from a full time job. But believe me people does not make money only from blogging. They have other online business which they run through blogging. So, the wise decision is to take blogging as a full time job after learning about all the other sources of money.
