The Author

His name is Harsh Agrawal, in about page on his blog he says;

I am the fountainhead of ShoutMeLoud.

I may use big words at times, but I’m a really simple guy who loves to simplify complex stuff.  

I started blogging out of my passions for learning & sharing. In 2008, I got to know about blogging & within a month, I was live with my first blog.

The idea of connecting with the like-minded people and be able to share my knowledge with the world, I couldn’t resist the temptation of taking it seriously.

I started on the BlogSpot platform & within two months I moved to WordPress.

I found blogging to be a great medium for sharing my favorite things with the world. Initially, I started writing random stuff, but later on, I discovered how to make money blogging. I discovered “The Way” to become my own boss through the power of the internet. This was when I started sharing those things that worked for me.

That’s how ShoutMeLoud was born.

Blogging has given me a sense of freedom that I didn’t know was possible. I currently live a ” boss free” lifestyle where I travel around the world and blog from anywhere & everywhere (a.k.a. digital nomad).

I’m an introvert, but now I speak in front of hundreds of people at events & seminars. (This still gives me shiver).

I’m able to do it because I have something meaningful to share.

Those are three places that I think are good for you to start learning blogging. I hope this article is useful for those who need it. Happy blogging. cheers …
