My life quote:
Easy Choices, Hard Life. Hard Choices, Easy Life.
it’s me, ‘deepak.’
Well, you may wonder….what makes me the person who talks about Productivity, , Digital Marketing, Blogging and WordPress? After all, I am no one!
i am passionate about learning new things and teaching what I have learnt. In the year 2012 I started blogging, nothing serious, just writing about random stuff. nothing happened. crickets. I was seeing these bloggers online who have had success, and I was curious how they did it. But I did not know where to start. Then one day a friend (who was my co-founder at my first venture) sent me something interesting, a ‘list of schools in dubai’ to publish. I published it and it literally was on the top of google within a week. I sat there wondering what i had done right!
I had published something that people were actually looking for, online. From there on I researched what people were looking for online. My first successful blog was born, emiratesdiary.com. Initially, I was covering random stuff on this blog and pivoted to job search and uae labour law. The response I received was immense!! I connected with so many people, so many wonderful people along the way. Emirates Diary grew to a subscriber base of 25 K+.
You see, I started blogging in the year 2012 to do one thing,
“Learn to design websites”.
And it turned serious with me! Since I was also working full time, as a ‘by-product‘, I had to manage my time really well. This meant that paying full attention to my day job and giving enough time for my blogs. It taught me, how to manage time really really well, while being productive.
While I learned about ‘website design’, what I learnt more was the art of Blogging and WordPress. It creeps on you slowly…..while you learn so many new things, meet so many people, positively affect so many individuals…… it’s worth it.
Another important skill addition I had was learning Digital Marketing. This is one of the greatest skills I have learnt in my blogging journey. I believe Digital Marketing is all about getting your thoughts, products to your customers at the right time and right place. With the world already on the palm of your hands and on a screen in front of you, it is necessary you optimise your business, products towards these huge pool of audience online. I help small and medium businesses (SMEs SMBs) in Dubai optimise their online presence. I also help bloggers launch their blogs and be successful.
So, here I am, all smiles:

Since starting my first blog in late 2012, it has been quite a journey.
Two of my blogs I would like to mention are:
