What inspired you to build the above blog?
First of all thank you very much for giving me this wonderful opportunity to share my history in Yo!Success. From childhood I always wanted to do something new which will give me a personal & professional satisfaction. So, I tried many things but nothing gave me professional satisfaction. About 1.5 years ago I came to know about blogging when I was read a personal interview of a famous Indian blogger on Facebook. I thought that I have found something which really satisfies me. I started researching about blogging & soon I was fan of Blogging. I started my own BlogSpot blog but after few months I completely moved to WordPress. I found that blogging is the great medium for sharing our knowledge & thoughts with the whole world. That’s how blogmean.org was born.
