I hope you will enjoy this Q&A session. Do stop by in the comment section and feel free to ask Jitendra questions. 🙂

So, without further delay, let’s get started.

Q. Tell Us More About Yourself And How You Started your blog?

Jeff: I was unemployed at the time and was asked to join Facebook by a friend and then also signed up to Twitter in 2008. I noticed people’s fascination and obsession with the social networks. This intersection of technology and humanity was resonating. So I decided to start a blog and write about it early in 2009.  

It became a passion project and I also discovered I enjoyed writing.   

Q. How are you able to keep the productivity and motivation towards work for several hours every day? Do you use to maintain a checklist of tasks on day to day basis?

Jeff: The passion still burns and the writing and global validation and attention to the content I create feeds the motivation. I write a checklist for every day. 

Q. How important is social media for you? How do you use it to promote your work?

Jeff: Social media is one of my main means to distribute my content. Content needs to move to get attention and build credibility and trust. Twitter is my most effective social network. Tweets are sent every 15 minutes!

Q. What is your approach towards guest blogging? Which things you keep in mind while making a decision about selecting blogs for guest blogging? According to you, what is the future of guest blogging?

Jeff: Guest blogging allows us to scale the content creation but it needs to meet minimum writing guidelines. These include at least a 1,000 words, conversational writing style, visuals, a great introduction and good structure.

Oh yes… it must have that “X factor”

Guest blogging is here to stay for the foreseeable future.

Q. What is your best way to make money blogging and do you think it can work for everybody?

Jeff: There are many ways to make money. For me it includes keynotes and speaking events all around the world, affiliate marketing, launching digital training products, my books and courses, sponsored content and native advertising and also influencer marketing. 

Q. When you just started online there are a lot of pitfalls you face, how are you able to overcome these pitfalls?

Jeff: The biggest challenge is “starting”. This is closely followed by keeping on pushing out of your comfort zones. Sitting right behind those two is being afraid of being judged and being willing to be vulnerable in a very public way. 

So you need persistence and learning not to be afraid of looking stupid or wrong. For me the mantra “Done is better than perfect” needs to be embraced. 

Q: Where Are Your Blogs Hosted At This Time And How Long You Have Been With The Host? Please Share Your Experience With Them.

Jeff: I have been using BlueHost for about 4 years and they have been a great partner.

Q. What advice would you have for someone who is just starting with their first blog?

Jeff: Just start!…Don’t let fear stop you hitting the publish button. Then persist. Many fail because they give up when success is just around the corner.

That’s all for my questions, thank you very much for your time and Suggestions. It’s a very inspirational and informative interview for our readers. Have a Good Day Jeff 🙂

    Very thourough checklist. Great information Anuradha, thank you so much. Is not having ANY images considered harmful to SEO? For some reason I was under the impression that Google tends to rewards sites with media such as video and images.

      Hello

      You’re right, having engaging content on your web pages outside of just text is great for user experience — which is what Google is most concerned with. This isn’t a complete SEO checklist — we could write entire books about that (and actually, we have!), so adding sections on videos and images certainly would be beneficial to this list. Visuals are a great addition to any Web page. Thanks for your comment, Javeriya!
