At PAC we’re thrilled to be able to introduce you to our diverse world of interesting members. Philip Verghese ‘Ariel’ is no exception.
What is the focus of your blog?
How did you get into blogging? What made you choose this path?
Brother, you have the talent to write and why don’t you start a blog of your own and start writing.
He suggested (to) me Google’s blogger.com and that led me to do a search and found how to start a blog.
What do you know now that you wish you knew when you first started your business?
A lot of things I really missed in the beginning of my blogging journey, the major one in the list is having a good self-domain with a good keyword well stuffed with it. How nice it would have been if I knew this secret in the beginning of my blog journey.
What is your most proud blog related achievement? How did it affect you and/or your business?
For this too, I can give you a good number of blog-related achievements. Of course, that is related to the monetary benefits of my blogging. It is the monetary benefits I received from various platforms, especially when I first received my Google payment via AdSense.
Then, of course, another major one to mention is the cash Award received from Kingged dot com an Internet Marketing platform, and there are various other giveaways I received via my blogging journey. All these benefits or achievements encouraged or affected me to go on with my blogging business, Oh, no my blogging journey, I do not want to call or label this a business instead a journey LOL
Please share a blog post that you want to highlight? Why did you choose this one?
As I mentioned elsewhere on the internet especially on the #philipscom pages and in some interviews, I started my blogging journey as a blog commentator. Commenting on others blog was my main business in the beginning of my internet use.
So I always like to say about this experience and I would like to mention one such post in this regard. That is about the post under the title “The Power of Blog Comments” This is later published in the pages of Huffington Post, LinkedIn, Medium and various other platforms.
How do you manage time to run your business efficiently?
Before entering into the blogging journey actively I used to get up by 4 in the morning, spent an hour in meditation and Bible reading/study and then enter into the daily routine. The 9 to 5 job and back home by 6 and some blog reading and writing etc for some time almost one or two hours then go to sleep by 11 PM.
That experience was really a great one in my entire life. But sad to note that, this experience was totally changed after entering into the full-time blogging journey. That routine becomes a flexible one now and the getting up time totally changed according to the availability of my clients elsewhere on the other side of the planet. When it is morning in my country (India) the other part they find time to retire to their beds.
So, accordingly, I changed my working time and lifestyle, you can read a bit more about that in the below-given link, in an intro of a roundup post I recently conducted, wherein Lesly Federici of PAC wrote an initial write-up. You can read that here: Sleep And Productivity
What aspects of your business do you want to learn more about?
When you aren’t working, what do you like to do for fun?
As I am a ferocious reader from my childhood and in fact, that reading habit leads me to the field of writing. I used to read a lot in my childhood days and that hobby still continues with a slight change with the change in the lifestyle and the advanced technology.
These days I use the internet and other free available reading material via kindle and other media like blogging platforms. Yes, when I am not working I do read a lot of material especially on the blog related SEO like subjects. Of course, along with it I read the print media the newspapers, weeklies, and Magazines in my leisure time or say when I am not working.
What else do you want us to know about you?
I started my writing journey by using my native language Malayalam and even now I have a Malayalam blog too. I do translate articles and books from the English language to the Malayalam language. I take up this type of job as a part-time job, I have translated a few books and booklets of some of the well-known English Christian writers.
Even now I accept translation jobs from English to Malayalam. I will translate it and publish those pages into Malayalam pages for a nominal fee. I will do a rigorous promotion of their posts on various social media and blog pages.
If anyone is interested you can contact me in this regard via my email or website’s contact pages, or you can reach me via skype: philva6. For your information, Malayalam is one of the major regional languages of India which is widely used by Malayalees and few others all over the world.
