Hi Everyone, If you have ever read my article before, that would definitely be related to .Net or might be solution of a programming problem. But today I’m going to write about my journey. Here’s what I’m going to discuss in this post.
- Who I am & How I started my First Blog
- How much I earned through Blogging & Why I sold my Blog to a US Company
- How I setup my Software Company
Who I am & How I started my first blog
Let’s start from a quick background.
I started my Software Engineering back in 2015 & focused learning some programming skills from the start of my degree. Finding programming problems & solving on paper was really fun & helped me a lot to setup a strong programming base. I won my first programming competition when I was in 3rd Semester.
After completing half of my degree, I joined a company as a junior ASP.Net Core developer. After working couple of years on ASP.Net Core I realized that there are many programming help available online but still sometimes I found no solution of some programming problems. So I started sharing my code solutions on GitHub & ready a Blog Website using WordPress.
My primary goal from blog was not earning so I didn’t apply for any ads network. After publishing about 40 articles I was receiving around 2k-3k daily organic users. So I decided to apply for Google Adsense & got my account approved in couple of days.
How much I earned through Blogging & Why I sold my Blog
My blog daily earning was $8-$15 initially. I was getting 2k-3k daily organic traffic. I was making $300 to $600 monthly because some new articles was going in Google Discover for couple of days after publishing & getting good users. After 1.5 years I had around 100 articles receiving around 10k daily organic users & I was making $40 – $100 daily & around $1000 monthly. All of my articles was related to programming problems & solutions. I was also earning around $100-$200 from Guest posts & link insertions etc. I had thought about setting up my own team many times but I don’t had much resources for that.
One day I received an email from a US based company that they want to buy my blog. They offered me to pay my monthly earning of that time for 2 years.
At that time my average monthly earning was $1000, So they offered me $24000. After email communication of one month we both agreed on $28000. They paid me using Escrow service & I handed over everything, e.g. Blog Domain, Files & DB backup, my blog Social media pages etc.
How I setup my Software Company
After selling my blog I setup couple of more blogs & quit my Job. I Setup a office, hired couple of developers & a sales guy to run my Upwork account to get some Good work for me. Right now, It’s been 3 year & I have a team of around 25 including Mobile, Backend developers & Sales persons. Whenever any of my Developer solve a programming problem, I ask him to share his code on GitHub & write a little article for explaining that code. I do publish that article in any of my blog.
