Blogging

As an 11-year-old growing up in a backward sector Northern India, King Sidharth and a few friends began organizing events and competitions for other children. They would make tickets and charge an entry fee, then award little prizes to whoever won. In an area where there wasn’t much else to do, Sidharth’s first business was a big success.

Seven years later, King Sidharth has just graduated from high school and he has already made a name for himself as one of India’s top young entrepreneurs. His primary work is in website development and design (see websites like MeditationRocks.us), but – like many young entrepreneurs – he’s never content working on just one thing.

King is also a speaker on topics of entrepreneurship and spirituality. He’s currently writing an e-magazine for teens (Friendz) and a book about the intersection of spirituality and science (Bhagvad Gita & the Law of Attraction). He’s also developing a movie that peeks into the lives of ten young entrepreneurs (“Friendz: The Movie”). Lastly, King is organizing a conference for teenagers called Createens. It will give young people an opportunity to learn about entrepreneurship, blogging, and more from world-wide experts.

When Adam Horwitz was a 15-year-old high school sophomore growing up in the Pacific Palisades, a mean-spirited gossip blog caught fire with his classmates. Concerned parents soon stomped it out, but Adam’s newfound desire to find online success would prove much harder to extinguish.

He started Urban Stomp, a website where he posted music and the locations of parties in the area. The site made a profit by selling clothes through affiliate links. Adam proved too successful for his own good: Urban Stomp drove 800 people to one party. He had to shut it down after only a few weeks.

Adam has learned from his mistakes and now teaches people age 15 and older how to make money online. He practices what he preaches: his courses, ‘Mobile Monopoly’ and ‘Cell Phone Treasure’, have each earned over $100,000 and he has another one in the works, called ‘Dude I Hate My Job’. To get his blood flowing, Adam enjoys driving his newly-purchased 2010 Audi A5 and playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on his Xbox 360.

Blogging is exciting. You get to share your opinions and advice with the world and people respond.

A few days ago I was contacted by a young entrepreneur from Pakistan who is preparing to launch his blog and he had a few questions. Jabran’s questions centered around launching your blog, updating frequency and my personal story ;).

Even if you’ve been blogging for awhile, there is a lot of valuable information in this post. If you haven’t started blogging yet, this post will encourage you to start.

Syed Balkhi used to get online at three o’clock in the morning to trade stones for a game called Neopets.

When he was 12, his cousin pointed out that he could do the same thing with domain names – all while pulling in a handsome profit. Soon he was developing websites, designing them, and running a paid domain name directory.

Originally from Pakistan, Syed is now 19 and attending the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL. Along with a handful of college friends (Amanda Roberts, David Pegg, and Mohammed Karim), Syed has started a successful web service company called Uzzz Productions. His blog for WordPress beginners, WPBeginner, has been up since July 2009 and already attracts an incredible 145,000 unique visitors each month.

Maybe it’s genetic: Syed’s six-year-old brother is running a successful blog of his own with Syed’s help.
