Ever since I stopped blogging (on WINARS, artsyHANDS), I’ve taken up writing for other blogs because there are three key benefits to writing for others than writing for yourself:
- Experience: Writing for other websites gives me insight into how the most popular and famous websites work.
- Time: I don’t have to be on the computer all day long. Instead, I only really have to take out 1 hour or less everyday. This lets me perfectly balance studies and writing.
- The Rewards: writing for other website(s) is a rewarding experience, both spiritually and monetarily. The thought of knowing that millions upon millions of people read what I so passionately write gives me more satisfaction than ummm other things.
So yes. After I postponed blogging for myself, I have written for Smashing Lists, WCCFTech, Sizlopedia and Hongkiat. I’ve been approached to write full-time for iPro Blog and iPhone Download Blog as well, but I, sadly, had to decline due to time constraints (ARGH! Why can’t there be 48 hours in a day O_O).
It was mostly a one-two posts thing on the websites I just mentioned. But I now write full time at RedmondPie.com, and I’m having the time of my life.
I started on 6th September with this history-making post. I’m pretty active on Redmond Pie. So far, I’ve written 80 posts and the number is growing everyday (2 posts published a day, on average). It is a truly rewarding experience. Taimur Asad, the editor-in-chief, is a very encouraging and helpful WINAR aadmi. I was struggling at the start because I had little to no experience writing on iPhone jailbreaks and unlocks and whatnot (a lot of posts are about iOS there), but he helped me every step of the way and I now consider myself knowledgeable enough to start my own JBing blog.
Of course, RP is more than just about jailbreaks and unlocks, it is a technology blog that covers a vast amount of topics: we cover Microsoft, Google, Apple, the web and any other significant tech-related happenings.
Writing for others suits me well. Really well. I get more time to study and yet I can continue blogging, something that I am seriously passionate about.
