Haris Nadeem – an amazing young blogger!

August 25, 2008 at 4:00 pm 10 comments

What makes my job truly enjoyable and motivating is the number of amazing people I meet on a regular basis. As the worldwide economy takes a dip, and many people are depressed about the political and economic situation, chance meetings with bright individuals continue to keep me upbeat.

At the P@SHA Career Expo in Lahore yesterday, I was introduced to a young man who is still at school (in Matric) and is making between US$650 – US$750 every month through blogging. His blog Sizzled Core is technology focused – he writes about freeware, gadgets, etc. He was discovered by Badar Khushnood of Google. Badar introduced him to us at the Career Expo yesterday during his talk on “How to earn a good living through blogging”.

Badar spoke to a hall full of people about how you can combine your ability to write, take photographs or shoot video with your passion for something specific, to earn a decent living in your spare time. In

the case of Haris, it is a passion for technology.

We also met Sheheryar who patiently bid for freelance projects online for 3 months before he hit pay dirt. But it was worth it. Now he is able to get so many projects that he provides employment to 8 – 10 other freelancers in Lahore and Islamabad to whom he outsources the work.

Badar also mentioned other well-known blogs like Teeth Maestro, BuzzVines and Lahore Metblogs (one of the authors from Lahore Metblogs, Usman, was present in the audience as was Salman who has a successful E-commerce site.)

A number of questions were fired at Badar by newbies regarding the setting up of a blog. Some existing bloggers wanted to know why their AdSense account was blocked. It was a very interactive session and all of us came away having learnt something new. My thanks to Badar for keeping his commitment and coming to the event even though he had a severe back problem and had been totally bedridden till the day before. Such is the passion of people in the IT industry!

    It feels great pleasure when pakistani earns on the internet. there are very spams on the net. If A pakistani matric student is successful in blogging and earns more than 650 $. It gives encouragement to others that we can alsodo something on the net, rather than just wasting time.

    Recently, there has been a good deal of inquiries by the
    American FTC against blogs and website promoters
    for not revealing advertising revenue, or potential
    connections with advertising agencies.

    What are your personal thoughts about how this could potentially impact
    the blogging world?
