​ I'm 25 & Here Are My Future Plans

Yes, now I'm 25, and it's not a small issue. I think I've delayed a lot of time. I should have been at least 2-3 years younger. I have wasted a lot of time for nothing. Now I can feel that and regret myself. Here I want to tell first some of successful people's life in 20's. I'm not comparing myself to them. They are my idol, I get inspired by them. Let's think about Mark Zuckerberg. he created Facebook when he was 22. as soon as he felt that it is a great money making machine, he left college and went to silicon valley to start his business. He became the youngest billionaire. 
My Future Plans
Bill Gates is the richest person in the world and Microsoft founder. Gates said in an interview in 2011- ‘I never took a day off in my twenties. Not one. And I’m still fanatical, but now I’m a little less fanatical. I play tennis, I play bridge, I spend time with my family. I drive myself around town in a normal Mercedes.’ he worked almost all time. One matter is, if you are really passionate about your job, then you never feel any pressure even if you work for 8-10 hours at a stretch. Jack Ma is the founder of Alibaba group and the richest person in China. In a video, Jack Ma not only told the audience what he thinks they should do when they are in their 20s but up to their 60s.

How To Optimize Images For SEO

​Images are crucial for a blog post. It defines the blog topic more perfectly. Apart from that, you can get a lot of traffic from the image-based search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc. if you properly optimize your blog images. I was not so aware of image optimization. When I start to optimize my blog image, I start to get traffic from Google images. Even my blog loading time improves with it, as a result of it, its visibility has been increased in the search engine. And you know blog loading time really matters to search engine. So if you want to improve your blog's overall SEO, then you must give priority to image optimization. It's nothing like rocket science; just you have to follow some rules. Here are these.
Optimize Images For SEO
Choose the right Image- it's always better if use your own picture in your blog post. Copyright is a big issue. You can use the stock photo on your blog, most of the famous bloggers use this method. You just need a subscription to stock photography sites like iStockphoto, Shutterstock, Fotolia or like these. Using stock photo is very important, cause it will give a professional look to your blog, alternatively you don't have any headache on copyright related issue. Use an image that reflects the same subject as your post. It is not that you have to use an image and you put anyone in your post. Be relevant so that the image can draw your visitor's attention.

How I Get Motivated By My Idols

​Motivation is very important for any profession. It can be helpful for footballers, singers, painters and online marketer whatever the profession is, wherever he came from. I wrote before the reasons why motivation is so important. I saw a book on many bookstores from my childhood; it was a book named you can win by Del Carnegie. I saw that book in our regional language Bengali. It was translated. Motivation didn't make sense to me then. I thought it's something meaningless. Truly speaking, I won't believe in motivation. But as time passes, I've faced many situations and incidents, and now I can tell- I was totally wrong. I think nobody motivates me in my childhood; nobody shows me the way where I can excel myself. My family gave me too many books for different occasions, but none of them was motivational. So I have no idea or basic concept about motivation, for that reason, Del Carnegie's book seemed meaningless to me!

How I Paid Only $0.001 To Facebook Ads Per Post Engagement

​Recently I've published a details report on my blog's statistics, growth and performance for first six weeks. I think it's pretty good achievement and especially those compliments. Imran is my very good friend and mentor, and he knows me from the very first of my blogging journey. So his compliment matters to me a lot. As I said I'm not going to build a blog, but a brand. A brand needs overall growth in every field, social presence, search engine presence. As it is only six weeks old so, I should not expect good search engine presence right now. Almost of my posts has been indexed in Google. Ranking is the next part. I have to wait for few months to see the result.
How I Paid Only $0.001 To Facebook Ads Per Post Engagement
Social presence matters a lot for authority building. If you check Neil Patel's Facebook page and Twitter handle, you will find his articles has been posted after 1-2 hours difference. The more they share, the more they get social signals, which help to improve ranking. Though many webmaster and online marketers think the social signal is not a factor for ranking. But I don't think so. Google crawls Facebook too. And like, comment, share are the signs of appreciating an article. Whenever people start reacting positive, that means your article is great and share-worthy. Google gives priority to an article with huge social shares and likes. The top three social media are Google Plus, Facebook and Twitter. It has been said that Google gives more priority to google plus signals as this is their own social network [in the same way Google gives priority to YouTube videos over DailyMotion cause YouTube is their own product]. If you talk about Facebook, then share is the more important signal, then comment, then like. Here is the full chart of Google ranking signals, check it.

What Is The Future Of Blogging?

​Blogging- the term is very popular nowadays. Internet's incredibly expanding is the main reason for it. Even five years ago, the internet was not so popular in India. Only selected people used the internet, and that was mainly for working purpose. But the scenario has been changed now. From 15-45, almost everyone has a Facebook account. Facebook is now a part of the entertainment. People click pictures and upload it instantly to Facebook with place tag, friends tag, emoticons (like feeling happy). Whenever people gets bored, they start to check Facebook news feed. And the latest option is Facebook Live. These options are basically helpful. But people misuse it. Even I month ago, I got many unnecessary status pictures, posts in the news feed and it's really annoying for me, especially when I need the internet for my livelihood needs. Facebook is really a big time waster, but some people who are tech savvy or blogger or internet marketer, they use it correctly. We have a secret blogger's group on Facebook where we discuss blogging tips and tricks. Now peoples are more interested in blogging, for many reasons. Especially when you can work from home. Noob bloggers think it is very easy and they can make money overnight. I would like to inform that my first blog made $0 and you should also know how I have to deal people for this profession.

What I Think About Online Marketing

​I did not think in my early age that I would in this profession. I wanted to be a software engineer in childhood; later I wanted to be programmer always when I learnt to program. There were two options for me. Either to be a software developer or to be a web developer. Somehow web developing languages like HTML, JavaScript, CSS attracted me more. So I started my journey for being a web developer. Then I made a blog which made zero dollars for lack of sufficient knowledge about search engine optimization, marketing, etc. then I realized, blogging is not only about coding or writing content. The most valuable part is the promotion. And you should have enough marketing knowledge for promoting a blog/post. I had no friend that time to help me, I had no mentor that time to guide me. If there was any problem, there was no one to show me, not even my parents, my teachers, my neighbors or others. Though I've got some mentors later like Imran Uddin, Iftekhar Ahmed, who helped me a lot. When I left my college after my first semester, I was really depressed about thinking about my career. Unemployment, lack of money were my biggest fear, not even then, it's still my biggest fear- if one day, I have no money then what will it be? That fear makes me work more, to save more money to my bank account.

An Open Letter To My Friends

Dear friends, ​I am writing this letter only for you, whom I know personally, who are my friends beyond the Facebook wall. I am grateful to you all for standing by me, for supporting me, for encouraging me, for loving me unconditionally, this letter is for you only. My life was never so easy. You all know I was an average student, shy, introvert, unpopular in my school. I was hardly talk to any girl in my school-life except some of you, who created a comfort zone for me. I liked one of my classmates, she was my crush for a long period, but I never told her that, I was really shy. As I told I was an average student, almost no teacher knew me well. But I was favorite student to all my computer teachers. I loved this subject and still now. Do you remember our computer science teacher in class 11 and 12? I can't recall his name, but he loved me the most. 
An Open Letter To My Friends
I still remember the day, after our class, he told everyone to leave the classroom except me. When all of my classmates went out of the class, he said- "Sourajit, are you studying at home properly?" It sounded like as a careful father asks his son. After a little silence, I said, "Yes sir". He advised me to study well in the house. He also added- "Look, I did not call anyone else here, I just called you, I trust you." Unfortunately I didn't make good marks in Computer Science [HS]. I didn't meet him after that, what will I say him especially when I failed to fulfill his wish. Not only that year, I never got good marks in Computer Science. The reason is very simple- our board's main preference is theory, and I hate that. It's always better to know how to code than memorizing "how a microprocessor works". It was like a phobia for me to go school every day. I would like to stay at home sitting in front of computer. You all know I'm dropout, but many of you don't know the actual reason. First of all, I have kind of phobia to go any institute one anyplace where needs regularity. Honestly speaking, my lifestyle is very irregular and very reckless. My first semester's attendance was only 27-28%. College authority forced me to sign in bond for the next semester. If my attendance were below 75%, they would not allow me to give the exam. You all know sometimes (or maybe always) they consider it, take fine and allow for the exam. But as they said those words, I did not agree to go college anymore. It was one of the biggest decisions in my life. It even could destroy my future, cause which software company will give me job especially when I don't have even a B.Tech degree. Not only that, probably I am the only one who does not have any degree, any certificate in Computer Science. I was depressed at that time, worried about my future. At that time, a few of you stopped coming at my home whereas a few of you gave me company unconditionally. I am grateful to them. You gave me company when I had nothing. When a bad time comes in anyone's life, some people even reaches at ZERO level. But in my case, I went to minus level. Still, you gave me company. You stood by me. I don't know how to thank you. I went every day to my best friend's house, and we used to talk about random topics and laughed a lot. Many of you think that I left my college because of my breakup. It's completely wrong. But the matter is that, breakup and leaving college both incidents simultaneously increased my depression. Anyway, I have somehow passed it. I started my professional career when I was 22. Most of the credit is yours for my stable life, my achievements, my happiness, my everything. When I was depressed, I wrote a letter to my friends like this, and I requested- please don't misunderstand me for not going to college, believe in me. I didn't have any idea what my future will be. Right now, I'm very serious about my career, I work hard, I love my work, and I know how to improve further in my work. So I will request you to stand by me like before. It gives me tremendous inspiration. In the same way, I want to see you all successful; I want to see you all highly established. I know you deserve that, just stuck to your profession, stuck to your field. Thank you all again. Love you.

Regards,
Sourajit Saha

PS- This is my personal blog. It's not any money making machine. I just express my thoughts, my feelings, my experience through it. The last thing- Srif thanks me kya hoga? Party hona chahiye! Destination McDonald's- Burger- French Fry- Coke. I will be waiting for that day. :)

PPS- I did not mention anybody's name here. Those who know me well, it would not be difficult for them to guess the names. Again, thank you.

My Blog Report After 6 Weeks

​I started this blog on 21st March. I have a little regret on myself about it. It would be great if I made it four days ago, on my birthday. It would be easy to remember for me, and it would be a special, my birthday and my personal's blog's registration date will be same. Anyway, I have nothing to do now about it. I was very busy on 17th March as it was my 25th birthday. I think I am old enough and now I have to do something seriously, that can help me in my future days. I have taken two great decisions of my life in 2017. One is, not to do Facebook anymore. I mean some worthless scrolling down to news feed continuously, watching some baseless status, love-related quotes and all. I always say everyone to quit Facebook and do your job. After ten years you will get nothing from Facebook, but your hard work can give you a big mansion, a super-car.

Time Is Money, Don't Waste It

​The proverb says time is money. So do your work in proper time. Cause sometimes later means never. I am now at an age when my/our parents should not take any responsibilities about our career. You are old enough, and you have to feel yourself what is good and what is bad for you. If you can't feel this, no one will be able to do that. I was not serious about my career at all, even before 4-5 years. I have no decent idea what I am doing, why I am doing this and what the result will be. I was careless about my career. But right now I can see a huge change in myself. 
Time Is Money, Don't Waste It
I am very career focused nowadays. I work hard for my blogs. I spend a quality time for writing articles. When I don't write articles, I think how I can improve it more and more and make it more user-friendly. I make some minor changes to my blog template almost every day. I want to make sure it's perfect for every device- from a smartphone, tablet, laptop and desktop. Each visitor is important especially when you're going to create an authority. It should be properly responsive; it should not have any single downtime. If your visitors feel any problem, it will affect your entire blog reputation.
