How I Started T2Lead:
As i said, i started T2Lead on 4th Aug 2013 and started tech related articles and how to guides on various topics/products. Before starting T2Lead blog, i have some experience in websites and blogs during my college days itself. From my previous experiences, i learned many things about a blog and blogging. While starting T2Lead, i had idea about all tech related articles and hope so till now i have posted some good articles. Connect with me on various social media Twitter, Facebook.

About T2Lead:
While naming my blog as T2Lead i had two types of expansion for that, first one is “Time To Lead” and the other one is “Tech To Lead”. Hence i selected the blog name as T2Lead. Initially my blog was hosted on SquareBrothers and later i have migrated it to LeadMyDomain. As of now i have posted 284 posts in this blog which includes how to guides, tech news, software related contents, development, programming, websites, android, mobiles, social ntwork related contents, money making, seo, wordpress, domains and so on. Know more about T2Lead Setup.

WordPress and Paid Theme:
T2Lead is a WordPress Blog. WordPress is the powerful content management system and for better blogging experience i recommend you to use WordPress. Initially i had a free wordpress theme on my blog and later i bought a paid theme. Free themes doesn;t get updates accordingly, but the paid themes will get lifetime updates and paid themes has many built-in features like seo optimization, shortcodes and many more. After moving to paid themes i have removed almost 6 plugins which are all already in-built in the theme itself. Currently T2Lead has Codilight Theme, which is a paid theme from Famethemes.

How Much i have Spent on my blog?
I have spent around $90 in this 1 year for my blog.

T2Lead.in Domain – $9
Single Domain Linux hosting – $50
Premium Theme – $35

Total – $94

Things i Learned in this past 1 Year of blogging:

  • Blogging is a serious thing, so you must have clear ideas before sharing any contents.
  • Choosing a right domain for your blog is more important.
  • Page Load speed must be less.
  • Too much ads will downgrade your blog ranking.
  • Website Downtime should be too less.
  • Don’t copy anything from any site, even if you are posting content which was posted already on a niche site, then deliver the content in your own words and then mention the source website at the end of your post.
  • Have goals in your life, that will help you keep moving forward .
  • The main key to success is confidence.
  • Success is an endless journey, once you on the track; you don’t have to stop ever.

Last but not least, “Never Give Up”.
Feel free to share your suggestions, views and ideas on blogging.
