Life, Now and Then

I am 27 years old and my birthday falls every October 19th. (Happy birthday to me, yay! 🎂)

I was born in a village (Google maps location linked) in a poor Brahmin family. I was supposed to read-preach-and-read to live my life, which I did for the first 14 years.

But that wasn’t going to be my life forever. Once I left my village and started meeting new people, my perspective changed and I started thinking big. Sometimes I wanted to be a scientist, sometimes a mathematician and most of the time a civil servant. I am still looking for a suitable career option that can make me happy. :)

Blogging Life

I started blogging in 2008.

I wrote on static sites, free CMSes and forums to enhance my skills.

I created my first personal blogspot.com blog in December 2008, WordPress blog in February 2009, WordPress.com blog in September 2010.

I bought my first commercial domain in 2011.

I became a commercial blogger in 2012 when I started getting paid for writing and publishing.

So, it took almost 3 years to earn my first dollar.

The reason? I had no guide. And, I wrote study notes. I learned from my mistakes and fixed some of those but still continued doing plenty of those.

Learning is a continuous process. I am still learning. But, unlike those times new bloggers are now guided properly and unless they are really stupid, they don’t suffer from what I did.

What I do?

I don’t brag.

I don’t appear in interviews.

I don’t even rank over my own name Gaurav Tiwari in Google and seriously I don’t want to. (“Why?” – I will answer that in a post really soon.)

I don’t attend blogger summits.

I don’t do webinars.

So, what do I really do?

I design visually great and conversion ready user interfaces & graphics. I intend to develop content for the most common people in the most uncommon way possible. My designs are more than just perfect and are well-targeted to the purpose. I have designed over forty thousand graphics and crafted over eight dozen websites which have attracted over 430 million impressions worldwide.

I write articles about tech, education, blogging & business at gauravtiwari.org, which you can find on the blog. This journey is now 11 years long since I started writing professionally in 2008. You can explore the whole archives or try a random post.

I develop mobile apps, web apps, WordPress Themes, Plugins and design snippets primarily for clientele’s purpose. You can find my open source work at github.

I guide newcomers to blogging & internet marketing in my spare time. This is totally free and an appointment can be easily booked by using my contact form.

Above all, I am a reader and a gamer. I love to spend my time on books and games (currently PUBG Mobile and COD on Xbox).
