My blog is a live example of the power of compounding. When I started in 2010 after attending a training on Digital Marketing it was an exploration. Which rapidly grew to a passion to share a lot of good things. It took nearly 5 years to get to a 100,000 hits and less than 3 years to get to 500,000 hits. And thats when I said its time to upgrade the Blog to a Website.
The website A Few Good Things – has a clean , simple layout that is based on the Golden Rule of 3
- All the 170 Blogs are distributed under 3 heads – Travel, Spirituality and Daily Life.
- The Travel section is further trifurcated to Day Trips, Short Breaks and Longer Breaks.
- There is an excellent search engine that can help you navigate with ease
This started as a travel blog. I love to travel and document it in detail so that fellow travellers can plan their trips easily. I hunt for offbeat locations and resorts and help market them through my Blogs that have a viewership of ~ 500 a day.
Over time I have added other interesting entries on Spirituality and Daily Life (Corporate, Personal Finance, Fitness etc). All these are based on my real life experience.
Some of my Blogs feature high on Google search – for Eg if you search for “What is Rudram” my blog may well be in the top 3 . Tirupathi Travel Tips, Baevu Village, day trips in Bangalore are also some of the blogs that come in the top 10 in Google Search. Blogs on Valley of Flowers, Soulitude in the Himalayas, Badami – Pattadakal , Tiruchi in 3 days, Vipassana Experience – record a high viewership daily benefiting many. The PIO to OCI writeup has helped thousands in Bangalore to visit the FRRO office and get the necessary paperwork done. A Few Good Places which is an exhaustive list of all the places we have been to and those that are in my list – is used extensively before the holidays.
Many resorts have thanked me – as they have seen a steep jump in bookings rating their property as a must visit – with all the details on how to reach and spend your time there.
The journey continues and I seek your support to continue the compounding effect – help take the 500,000 to 1 Mn and beyond. Do sign up as a follower and please do share the blogs that you found useful with your friends and relatives.
A big thanks to all my well wishers, followers and travel partners and lets pray that a Few Good Things continue to roll out regularly.
