    Having a mentor reduces a lot of work. whenever you face any issue you can ask to your mentor. Sadly when I had started I didn’t have any mentor so I had to learn on my own. It took years to be perfect in the stuffs I started but yes it was a good experience of learning on my own.

    Thanks for mentioning me here. Keep blogging!

      Hi Ashu,

      Nice to see you in my blog. I must say I am lucky to have mentor like Atish bro who is not good for his family only but also equally good for others inspite of having a busy schedule.

      I am sure in blogging there are so many who come forward to help others without asking anything in return.

      Thanks for coming and do always come to share your views.

      • ashu says:

        There are people who surely help each other. This is the best thing about blogging that people tend to help each other rather than making there own way to success like the corporate world.
        But as per my experience none of the best bloggers share there secrets. If you are getting my point.
        Every body share the knowledge in their own way but the secret of their success is still hidden :P

    Hello Di,

    Yes, you are absolutely right!

    Having a mentor really makes our journey more easier.

    Though I had an experience in blogging, after getting unexpected thing in my blogging journey, I had decided to quit blogging. I don’t know how and when I came across Atish bhai, who not only encouraged me to continue to blog from scratch but also guided me very well at every stage.

    Thank you Atish bhai. Thank you very much. :)

      Hi Vijay,

      Happy to see you in my blog. I really want to be mentor (lol). But due to lack of knowledge I cannot be.

      Eveready to help others in need. There are so many skilled people in blogosphere you can remain in touch with them. Try to increase your PR (rappot) with them. May be from their hectic schedule they will spare sometime for the help.

      Thanks for sharing your feeling. Keep coming.

  6. Hello, mentorship is very good, it guides one from not falling into the pit of failure. You are lucky tho, because many people will like to mentor others for what they really want to eat. I believe you will not do that.

    It is true that it is through mentorship one can know all the points mentioned above but are people really ready to do that.?

    Anyway thanks for sharing.

      You right for the mentorship everyone cannot be ready. It requires a heart also apart from knowledge to help others.

      I feel that may everybody be lucky like me as I have mentor to guide me through my thick and thin.

      My lack of knowledge cannot let me reach to the place where I want to but with mentor I can overcome all hurdles.

      Thanks for coming and hope to see you again in my blog.

      Hi Samir,

      Nice to know your idea about finding a mentor. Indeed It does save your money as well as lot of motivation you get. All good things are here if you have a good mentor.

      I see the great change in me with mentor and other people who is without mentor. There is a day and night difference between these aspects. I really pray all blogger should have someone to guide them.

      Thanks for coming.

  8. Samir says:

    Well to be honest I never tried this idea of finding a mentor for my projects or you can say I worked alone sine begging. I know how hard it was to learn and also implement thing on our own.

    BTW I don’t say that I haven’t took help of web. Some of top likes like shoutmeloud, problogger.net and etc are of great help and it was the resources to learn some starting things.

    So for any newbie finding a mentor to jump into blogging is always a good choice.

    • Shiwangi Shrivastava says:

      Hi Vicky,

      Right you are Vicky. Without my mentor I don’t think I ever would have achieved whatever I have now.

      I am glad that you had also good experience of learning otherwise there are many people came and said that nobody came forward to help them.

      Thanks for coming and for sharing your views.

  12. Hi Shiwangi,

    Just as I was telling Atish above, as what he mentioned related to me too, or perhaps way back when we started blogging (though it’s just been 3 years for me), but perhaps I was a write and not a blogger, so I didn’t know of anyone when I started my blog.

    I wish I knew some bloggers, which isn’t the case with bloggers nowadays who enter the blogosphere with a good knowledge of blogging, so it’s easy for them to reach out and connect with others as most of them open blogs seeing each other too. What we knew way back then were brand names like Darren, Brian etc, but they aren’t people you can relate to or ask for help, so they are people you can just follow and learn from. A mentor needs to be with you and be there to help out when required, and such people were tough to find way back then.

    But as they say, if you are determined, nothing is impossible. My mentor was good old Google – each and everything that I’ve learned has been on my own by reading blogs and picking up stuff from probloggers and I’m glad I’ve reached some place now, though I agree that had I found someone who had the time to teach me things, it might have gone faster, provided such a person had the goodwill, time, and patience to teach too.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead :)

    • Shiwangi Shrivastava says:

      Hi Harleena mam,

      Literally that is why I feel that I am blessed to have Atish as bro cum mentor. Though Atish has not much time to make me learn every single aspects. But he always try his best to exrtact a good from me. I am thankful to him. Not only Atish is the person I am thankful even I am thankful to you and few bloggers who stand as an inspiration for others.

      That things always remind me during my journey to blogging that I have to reach to that place where my seniours are now in.

      Oh mam lovely to see your reasonable focus for my subject. But my determination and zing inside me has come out from Atish timely help and seeing other bloggers achievements.

      I owe that your journey to blogging was very peculiar because there were nobody to guide you all. I salute you for that without backup you have achieved in your life which many people still thinking of.

      Thanks for the lovely and enlarged comment. Keep coming.

  13. I suppose that having a mentor will ease our work to a greater extent. The advantages are exact like you mentioned.

    Well, let me look into other side of this issue, and share the benefits of having “NO MENTOR”

    1. Self analysis – matters a lot than knowledge obtained by someone feeding us. It’s by making mistakes – we find the loop holes and other possible disadvantages of doing so. I can say this is the real knowledge or learning

    2. Experience – Without a mentor, it takes a lot of time to understand the situation and this is the actual time for advancement. Even if we are directed by a mentor, we still need time and experience to understand the process/tricks on what to do and what not to do !

    3. Exposure – Like I said it take times to learn the process and so; during this process – in order to learn it, we will be searching for as many resources as possible from all around the web. This way we come to understand about co-bloggers and realize -
    a. what they are doing/upto ?
    b. How they are acting ?
    c. Insight on their content
    d. Whom they are linked to ?
    e. What type of content is moving fast ? and lot more to mention

    4. No False guide – Well this may or may not happen, let us think – what happens if some of the strategies framed by our mentor were wrong and not fruitful for our blogs ? Everybody lives with different perception. My rules won’t apply to you and same with others !

    I can list more here, but time is not permitting me to comment more. Of course there are some dis-advantages of not having mentor. The following MUST be the features of those whom are not having mentors

    1. CONSISTENCY – having patience. Wait and watch how your sown seed reaps and turns big to give you sweet fruits !
    2. Risk taking – one should be ready to face the risk of getting slowed. Sometimes your own framed strategies might fail, but just swallow the risk and wait for the turn !
    3. Involvement – Definitely blogging without mentor is a time consuming process and you need to really involve to understand and analyze the process

    Well, I just want to clear that “WE CAN RUN BLOG WITH ZERO SKILL”. Our passion might drive us to reach anywhere, just one should assume patience like I said above

    Well, Mentor is absolutely required in the following situations

    1. When we expect immediate sales/results or likes to get highlighted instantly !
    2. Our focus is only on writing and you are not interested in designing a blog from scratch (instead you wish blog designers to make that for you)
    3. Don’t want to wait and take the risk of experimenting
    4. Want to monetize our blog badly

    And lot more. Well, I guess I should wrap up this lengthy comment by saying that ‘continuous writing and reading articles is one definite requirement (like Shiwangi ji mentioned) to master the writing talents’ !

    That’s it :)

    Thanks,
    Bhanu
