Self Reflection and Flashback on Blogging in 2011

2011 has been a year of startups for me. Print  The most important of them is blogging. I started blogging (seriously) since June 2011. I never thought of taking SatisfyingReviews to such a height. This blog initially had articles on reviews of smartphones but soon I realized that there was a need of a blog that could give readers something unique. Satisfying Reviews not only achieved high ranks in Lucknow City but also got worldwide appreciation. Within 6 months, 17K visits and 750+ comments were recorded on blog. In this post, you will get all my secrets so that you can use them to grow your blogs in 2012.
